Lightwedge™ 3 DP is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Best Tent I have had this tent since the summer of 2009. I live and camp in Alaska. I have done many hunting and fishing trips in this tent, everything from rainy summer raft trips to early spring North Slope caribou hunts where the temp dipped to -30f. This tent has held up in everything and it has never even thought about leaking. After 7 years of hard use it is still in 100% perfect condition. I would say this tent has been set up and taken down over 200 times. Get this tent you wont be disappointed. As for size its a perfect 2 big men tent but would fit 3 normal people ok. I am 6' 280 and have slept very comfortably next to bigger guys in this tent. I have also set up a Camptime cot inside and it fits! So that's something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tent I used this tent for a 5 day trip near the BWCA in northeastern Minnesota in late July and it performed perfectly. Rained a little bit every day and it kept everything dry and secure. Rain fly was plenty big for my pack at night, and I was able to store a cooler underneath it during the day to keep it shaded. Plenty of room to roam inside with 1 or 2 sleepers, and while it would be snug, it would be no problem to sleep 3. Set up and takedown, although done only once, were a breeze with a brilliantly simple pole attachment design. I would buy this tent again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best summer tent I own I mainly use this tent for car camping but it is super fast to set up, does great in wind, and I have never been wet in this thing and I have been in some crazy rain storms. All in all if you are considering buying this tent just do it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent for Montana backcountry I've used this tent on simple camp trips to long duration backpacking trips. I've used the tent in all types of weather including heavy rains. Provides great protection from elements and sets up easily. I don't think it would fit three persons comfortably, its too small for that. Also, you will want to set it up in your yard or house before taking afield. Setup takes a little getting used to, but once you understand how it works, its very easy. The seams, zippers and anchor lines are high quality. It's just a great, well made shelter for nice or nasty weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tent except pole clips Bought this tent a few weeks ago. Everything about it is awesome except the pole clips. A few of them broke on my first night out even if there wasn't a storm or strong winds. However, the warranty service is great and took care of this in a promptly matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent I love this tent, the size was perfect and is very easy to set up. I was able to set it up while my wife chased a 2 year old in only a few moments. We were able to fit 3 people in there perfectly but one of them was a 2 year old. I'm not sure if 3 adults would be very comfortable but you could make it work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent Great tent, but it won't fit 3 people, it will fit 2 snugly. Only other down size was it did not improve enough stakes and they are pretty flimsy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overall I've been able to use this tent for a handful of camping trips so far. I've only slept two in this tent, which gave extra room to spread out, so three would definitely be comfortable. The extra room given in the vestibule is a plus, was able to keep all our gear inside. I love the dry pitch feature, it will come in handy for future trips. This tent was the best choice for me because it gave the most room without a lot of weight. My only complaint as far as quality goes, is the plastic clips for the fly. On one side the clip snapped in half when I tried to attach it to the frame. No real damage, I just knot it through instead now. Otherwise this tent is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I couldn't be happier with this tent, it goes up quick and does the job well. It is light enough to backpack with and is roomy enough for 2 people with 2 large dogs. I haven't tried it with 3 people but it seems like it would work ok given that my two dobermans take up quite a bit of space. My only complaint is the 1 piece main pole (2 poles connected with a metal hub) does not fold well and seems like it is putting tension on the elastic cord. I worry that this will not wear well over time. Time will tell but so far so good.
