Cozy with 3 and palatial for 2, The North Face Kings Canyon 3 Tent is a lightweight, freestanding, three season, three person tent. Made from sturdy yet lightweight materials, this North Face backpacking tent has a meshy body for plenty of ventilation, and a breathable nylon rainfly for full-coverage protection. Two doors and two vestibules make this shelter easy to share with a friend or two, with enough room just outside to protect extra gear and store muddy boots overnight. Stakes are included and are sized differently for differing soil conditions, and the poles are color-coded to the webbing corners for quick and easy set-up. From a backcountry reunion hike with your college friends, to a weekend with your sweety and your dog, The North Face Kings Canyon 3 Tent makes a great basecamp and is designed to save weight in your pack -- weighing just 4 pounds if you set it up fast-pack style with just the fly and a ground sheet.
- Altrec Outdoors
With an easy pitch and roomy interior, The North Face's Kings Canyon 3 tent has the lightweight strength you need in a backcountry shelter. Intelligent color coding helps you orient the poles to their clips and the fly to the tent body for a fast pitch when the day's light is fading. Hubbed poles further speed your set-up times while multiple stake types are included to cover varying soil conditions. A double door and double vestibule promote harmony among your tent mates while the high-low ventilation system helps to circulate the fresh air that drew you to the woods in the first place.

Roam through Appalachia with two friends by your side and the Kings Canyon 3 Tent in your pack. Often, three-season, three-person backpacking tents can feel claustrophobic and cramped inside, but the Kings Canyon boasts ample floor space, dual entrances and vestibule storage, and plenty of ventilation so everyone can breathe easy. A clever use of hubbed pole intersections, lightweight fly and floor materials, and lightweight components reduces the weight of this tent to a mere five pounds (light for a multi-person tent), without sacrificing weather protection or comfort. Besides its capability to protect you from the elements, the true test of any backpacking tent is how easily it fits into your pack once you break it down. To this end, the near-minimalist design of the Kings Canyon 3 allows it to comfortably fit into a single backpack--a nice touch considering that many multi-person tents are easier to carry if you split the components up between two or more people. Lightweight and freestanding, this is a backpacking tent even big enough for basecamp.
