If "compact and strong" brings up images of one of those half-pint 1880s bodybuilders in a silly bathing costume, that's totally cool, but don't forget that those words also apply to other, more rugged and radical things like Mountain Hardwear's EV 3 Three-Person Four-Season Tent. You could toss "superlight" into the mix as well, seeing as the EV weighs under 6. 5 pounds, virtually the same as some of Mountain Hardwear's all-mesh 3-season tents. Unlike those glorified mosquito nets, the EV is built to endure the raging winds and hammering snow you encounter on high-alpine expeditions and winter camping trips, with four DAC Featherlite NSL aluminum poles that stabilize your shelter without being unnecessarily heavy. In the same vein, the integrated vestibule cuts down on material while increasing strength and giving you enough room to store gear and de-boot without trampling your partners and tracking snow all over your living space. If you do get some snow inside (and let's be real, you will), the EV has you covered with a watertight drainage port in the floor so you don't have to sleep in a puddle. You can let some sunshine and fresh air into your life, too, courtesy of several SVX windows and four welded, adjustable mesh vents that'll keep you from feeling too claustrophobic on your fifth day of being stuck inside. The zippers are welded, their pulls are reflective, and the corner webbing is color-coded to make setup as easy as can be, even if the wind's howling. Good luck finding a body builder than can do all that.
