User Review: Mountain Hardwear Mountain Jet 3
Design: Three season, freestanding, dome
Ease of Setup: very easy
Weight: 6 lb 12 oz pack weight
Price Paid: Don't remember
I have slept in this tent at least 60 nights.
Easy and quick to set up, single wall. Has enough ventilation to keep condensation at a minimum if set up properly. Light for its size.
Most of my camping is from May to October in North East United States. I usually camp in humid environments in which there would be a lot of dew in the mornings. The big double doors, low and high ventilation kept the inside quite dry.
It has seen gale force storms with horizontal rain and was dryer and held up better than almost all of the other tents in the campsites.
It is a good flexible design, two doors gives good summer cooling and it has good weather protection.
I prefer it to almost every tent I've used, especially those double wall tents that require that the canopy with mesh windows be set up before the waterproof fly. This design makes the tent harder to setup and gets the inside wet when setting up in the rain. It is a design flaw used by most US tent companies, including Mountain Hardwear. Why do soo many people tolerate this design flaw:-(
The Mountain Jet tents don't suffer form this flaw.
