Forest spirits who often befriend and help travelers, the Tengu wander the high mountains of Japan. The Tengu 3 is Sierra Designs modern incarnation of the myth - two doors, one small vestibule, and one enormous 22-square-foot vestibule. We've all been soaked building camp in a downpour, but with the Tengu 3 you'll at least know your tent will stay dry - you can pitch the fly and poles, and the tent body hangs on the inside, so it's completely sheltered during pitching. Sierra Designs used RCT technology to increase interior space, a Quick Pitch Swivel Hub for fast set-up and bomber performance, and RCT Swift Clips to speed pitching. Sew Free windows give inhabitants a sneak-peek at the outside world, while the same great organizational features from the Tengu 2 make gear organization a pleasure: hang loops in the vestibules, and enough space to pitch a Portable Attic. The 22-square-foot vestibule is literally large enough a hiker can change clothes while fully covered!

Comments about Sierra Designs Sierra Designs Tengu 3-person Tent:

okay, after a year and camping at several dam release weekends and some canoe tripping, I've found my Tengu 3 does leak a little; not objectionable and something I'll address with some waterproofing fabric treatment.Set-up is absolutely marvelous, quicker than friends solo tents, quickest set up I've seen. Design lends itself well to whitewater paddlers who are always seeking rainy days and wet conditions. Vestibule is great to store wet gear after a paddle, cooler, shoes etc.. Set up in rain it's the best since fly is attached; no soaking the tent while attaching fly like other tents. Very sturdy, I'm really pleased.

Comments about Sierra Designs Sierra Designs Tengu 3-person Tent:

Set up the tent about 7 miles into the backwoods just as it started to rain. It is a little on the heavy side, but not too much so that it isn't usable as a backpacking tent, especially if you can split up weight of other gear with a buddy. Because of the Euro-style fly, the inside of the tent stayed nice and dry despite the rain that was already falling--a major bonus in my book.

It rained steadily all night, but we stayed completely dry. The huge vestibule was plenty big enough to keep all of our gear dry.

Like most "3-man" tents, it could fit 3 in a pinch, but you're better with 2 and a dog like we camped.

Just got my Tengu and have only used it once. Set up is amazingly quick and easy.Just make sure connector on poles has groove side down. I love the large vestubule as well. Camped on a cold clear night so I can't comment on watertightness.If it passes rain test I'll add that last star.
