Coleman Avior X3 review

I purchased this tent in July 2010 for $149 from a camping store in Brisbane.  I felt that it was incredible value for money for a 3 person trekking tent and my main holiday 8 person tent is a Coleman which I feel is very high quality. I laid it out in the garage before taking it for a trial run with my 2 kids. The tent is not free standing but comes with the fly and inner connected.  Putting it up is relatively straight forward.  Inside there is just enough room for 3 - I don't think 3 adults is realistic unless you are very friendly.  You can reduce the weight a bit by unzipping the floor for the anteroom section but this is probably not worth it.  Has internal storage areas which is very useful. Very happy with this tent - only thing is it could be lighter.

Ferrino Prodigy 3

Ferrino Prodigy 3 man Ultralight Hiking tent

Maximum Weight:3000 grams
Minimum Weight:2700 grams
Volume:2.1 m3
Stuff Sack:18 x 40 cm

3-person tent. The inner tent is ready-connected to the fly-sheet for fast, easy set-up, even in case of rain.

The PRODIGY 3 lives up to its name. Made with fire retardant fabrics, the inner-tent comes ready connected to the flysheet for quick and easy set-up (Integrated Pitch). So even if the rain starts to come down, you'll be guaranteed a dry nights sleep as the inner tent will stay dry. Ripstop polyester waterproof to 3,000mm and taped seams on the flysheet and floor ensure you'll stay dry even in the most solid precipitation.

The two doors and the "air" ventilation system ensure that the PRODIGY 3 receives excellent cross ventilation on a hot day. The two vestibules means your travel companion can keep their stuff dry on their side of the tent and not have to climb over you if they need to get out during the middle of the night. Stuff sack, inside storage pockets, lamp-hook and repair kit ensure self-sufficiency.

Vaude Taurus 2

3 man, 3 season tent which weighs in at 2.69 kg

This year Vaude have renamed the Vaude Taurus 2. It is now the Vaude Taurus 3P. It makes more sense to use 3P instead of 2 for 3 person tent! It now wighs a bit more at 3.1Kg


Wilderness Equipment Tectite 4 A 4-person tent at just over 2.2kg minimum pitch weight! The perfect, manageable, light-weight, insect-proof tent for a bushwalking family of two parents and two youngsters. The huge 5.3 square metre floor area will also appeal to tourers on two wheels, light-weight car campers and rock climbers needing a base camp tent.
