User Review: Mountain Hardwear Hammerhead 3
Source: bought it new
Love it! Favorite tent ever for my wife and I to backpack in comfort. Roomy, dry, warm, excellent versatility for hot through cold temps and bug escapes. Great star viewing.
- Needs two-way zipper on main zip-out panel.
- Needs better mesh storage on sides. Gear falls out.
We needed a good tent to get away from bugs, rain, sleet, stay warm, stay cool, lounge and reading space, room to move and change clothes. Hammerhead 3 does all of that for the weight of an all season 2-person tent.
My wife and I backpack and love our comforts. We spend 4-5 days out a few times a year in three seasons. She sleeps cold, I sleep warm. The main panel zips off to expose the great outdoors bug-free or zips on for another layer to help with air gap insulation. This panel would be more versatile with a two-way zipper but functions well as is.
The side vents could be bigger for better visibility too, but that would add weight. The side mess storage pockets are a little funcky and gear falls out sometimes. Perhaps a fold in the mesh near the opening would alleviate this?
But overall, my favorite tent ever!
