The three-season adventure tent that will have you covered on your lightweight hiking or backpacking expeditions, is the Ridgeline 3P from Coleman.
The ultra-fine mesh inner provides air flow, while the seam sealed 75D fly has a 3000mm
Perfect for the adventurous couple who likes a little extra space, or the travelling trio– the Coleman Ridgeline 3P won’t break the bank and is light enough for your hiking and backpacking expeditions.
Just come back from Ireland and Scotland where I used this tent in sun, rain and strong wind. Tent did not leak in rain and was fine in the strong wind. Only problem with this tent was the entrance. The fly zips open over the tent floor which meant when it was raining or there was dew, the water came into the tent when you zipped open the fly. I would not buy this design of tent again for this reason.
On paper, this tent is the best bang for your buck (especially on special) except for one thing: It uses Nylon fabric, which whilst lighter, sags and holds water whilst wet and is more prone to UV damage (compared to Polyester). I foresee durability issues with my fly in the future. But given all that, it is a spacious well designed tent that has lasted a fair weather 2 day camp and is excellent 3P tent for its weight and price. Have yet to test it in rain however....
Tents are good. Exactly what was required
I’ve seen this tent advertised elsewhere having a total weight of 3kg, which is a huge difference. Seems the 2P Version also has a big difference in advertised weights. Would also be good to know how wide the skinny ends is on this type of shape tent.
We are going by the specs released from Coleman here Greg, and I vaguely remember double checking the weight on our scales when we put them online. Our scales are out of action at the present time, but I'll make a note to double check the weights again once it's back in action.
As for dimensions, Coleman has not supplied this either, so we will need to set the tents up at some stage and get the dimensions for our website. I'll add this to my to-do list next time we have some space and demo tents to do this with. I did find a user manual for both the 2P and the 3P (same manual) and uploaded these to our product page, there are some pictures in this manual to give you an idea of the shape but Coleman has still omitted any dimensions sorry.
I hope this is helpful, sorry I couldn't be more specific.
Hi any trail tests of this tent as yet seems like what I'm looking for...
Unfortunately, we haven't had any feedback on the Ridgeline tent as it's so new to our range. I've had a look on the web and I can't seem to find any other user reviews anywhere else either.
If you do end up picking one of these tents though - do let us know your thoughts as I'm sure other people are also keen for feedback!
