User Review: Mountain Hardwear Skyview 3
Design: 3-4 season convertible
Ease of Setup: easy after 1 practice round
Weight: 10 lbs. complete
Price Paid: $440 US
Absolutely the finest tent I have ever used. Tough as nails, creative use of space, extremely versatile tent. 60 sq. ft, super ventilation options, huge 24 sq. ft. vestibule. I don't enjoy being overcrowded and too close to my hiking buddies. I feel about 20 sq. ft. per person is comfortable. Less than this and it better be my wife. Vestibule is big enough for plenty of gear or cooking.
This tent has been extremely storm worthy as all Mountain Hardwear tents are. This tent is palatial for two and quite comfortable for three. I laugh when I see the sq. footage of some "3 person tents." There are only so many ways to make a tent light and tough at the same time. For the sq. footage, this isn't really a heavy tent. Obviously, this isn't a solo tent. When divided between two people this tent is about 1 pound heavier per person than other 3 person tents with smaller vestibules and about 15 less sq. feet of sleeping area. Just absolutely the most versatile and fun to use tent I have ever tried.
