Got the 3P several months ago to use on archeological digs in Europe. Just got back about a week ago and I have to write a review on this marvelous tent. Used it for a total of 7 weeks. One dig site for 5 weeks straight and two separate weeks at two other locations. I couldn't be happier with the service I got from this tent!
Light, small, roomy, and so easy to set up, I could not ask for more. Everyone I hung out with Europe were not familiar with NEMO Losi brand but were definitely interested in it after they saw how fast I set it up, broke it down, and how small it packed.
We experienced good days, and a lot of very bad rainy days. Did I mention rain, rain and more rain and a lot of wind. The 3P held up like a champ. Not a drop of rain, no broken parts or tears. A brand new North Face tent next to my site gave up the ghost in a week (torn and leaked from rain and wind). Ventilation, roominess, and lack of moisture or leaks kept me and my supplies high and dry.
My 3P got thoroughly tested one night with very, very high winds and rain. The velocity of winds were so high that the sides of the tent were moving so fast and hard that I got repeatably beat in the head with the sides of the tent for a few hours. Again this tent held together so well compared to the ones around me that I promised myself to write this review.
Another item I need to mention is the great ventilation. Many of the other folks I met marveled at how fast this tent dried out and the lack of water problems. A few made comments that I must have one of those quick drying tents (whatever that is).
In summary, if you need to travel lite and dry, and want an easy set up, then this is a tent you want to consider. It is at the top of my recommended list.
