The Goondie 3-30D is a practical, lightweight, three-person tent that doesn't sacrifice comfort for the sake of saving a few grams. It is very similar to its siblings but larger - who would have guessed! It has two external doors, allowing three people to access the tent and vestibules easily. This tent is suitable for four-season use, and the freestanding construction and sturdy floor (no footprint required) make it easy to put up. The overhanging vestibules keep the inside dry even when the fly doors are open, while the mid-size YKK zips are easy to reach. All this, and its total weight is under three kilograms
Available with the choice of a summer (mesh) or winter (nylon) inner. Unlike the other Goondie tents, the Goondie 3 is only available with a 30D fly.
For super light weight options, consider adding the Goondie 3 footprint. This is an ultralight alternative to the tent inner.
|Extra Product Info|
The Goondie tent series has high-walled, bathtub floors made from hard-wearing, 100 denier PU-coated HT nylon – so tough that a footprint for under the tent is not needed. The vestibule can be rolled halfway up, creating fantastic flow-through ventilation even in the wet, bringing comfort in warmer conditions. When it’s cold outside, the full nylon inner adds insulation while the durable, water-repellent finish (DWR) prevents condensation dripping inside the tent. The Goondie is freestanding, needing a minimum of two pegs to hold the vestibules out. (Two ‘mega pegs’ are included, as well as four alloy pegs for the guy lines.) When not in use, the four storm guys tuck into handy little pockets built into the reinforcing tabs.
