User Review: GoLite Hex 3 Shelter (with Floor)
Design: 4 season, pyramid
Ease of Setup: no problem
Weight: 1.5 lbs
Price Paid: $230, tent and floor
Can't beat the weight. Easy to set up. But the feature boasted by GoLite that you can use a trekking pole to set the tent at different heights is bogus. I set my pole at its highest and was not able to get high enough. This is especially true when you use the Hex floor. There is only one loop at six corners to attach the floor to the side of the tent and with my standard trekking pole, I was not able to raise the bathtub floor at all. Water thus was able to seep in. (I was in a deluge)
An easy fix would be to allow lower and higher settings by placing extra loops up along the tent wall to attach the floor at a higher point. Also, starting with a well formed tent at a lower setting to allow room to go higher with the extension of the trekking pole. Oh, and it sleeps two people, with gear.
