User Review: Mountain Hardwear Lightpath 3
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $240
Love the ease of set up, and light weight. Only drawback has been condensation issues, so I have not figured out how to ventilate it properly.
- Ease of setup
- Light weight
- Ventilation — condensation on inside
Have owned this tent for 2+ years. Have used mine for scout camping 3.5 season in TN. It has been tested in very bad weather and held up fine.
Last two outings the rain fly was soaked inside as if a garden hose had been used on it (both outings had experience heavy rain so the ground was saturated - but used the footprint ground cloth.) If the top zippers of the door are opened to vent during a storm, rain would get through. Overnight condensation has actually dripped in to puddle on floor.
I have the 3-person version and use it for myself and one other person (spouse or teenager). Plenty of room for gear inside or in vestibule.
Like the color matching system between the poles-attachment points-rain fly and tent. Helped the first few times setting up, now it is second nature. I am set up before anyone else in troop and enjoy challenging the boys!
Wish it had more reflective strings in the tie downs instead of just the tabs. Have seen this on Coleman tents and it is super easy to find your tent in the dark.
When asked, I recommended it to new scout leader, so he bought the exact same tent! Only difference is the window shape.
