        Comments about Mountain Hardwear Drifter 3 Three-Person Tent:

        This tent is a very tight fit for three people, allowing only 22" of width for each person. Typically 2-man tents offer around 27" per person. This tent, at 66" wide, makes a great 2-man-plus-room-for-gear tent and is the same weight as many other competing 2-man tents. The tent also packs smaller than advertized and packs down to 6-7" wide by 18" long. Overall, it's a great backpacking tent for 2 people, is well made, and is a good value.

          This tent work well for my two Boy Scouts (small adult sized) and their dad (6'3") on a recent backpacking adventure. All three fit in the tent to sleep the two nights of their adventure. Also, divded between the three backpacks it didn't add much weight at all.

            Comments about Mountain Hardwear Drifter 3 Three-Person Tent:

            I got a three person tent with the goal of using it for two people. However, it is smaller than I thought even with that in mind. I've only used it once and we did end up cramming three people (1 guy, 2 girls). We put the fly on and we had a dog in each vestibule. Great place for your dog to sleep if you don't want him in the tent. It was not rainy or windy the night I used it so I can't comment on the windproof or rainproof capabilities.

              Shopper  what is the pole length?
              ANDREW P  I have not measured the poles exactly, but they are probably around 16 inches long when collapsed. Maybe shorter than that even. I just used this tent on a hike a few days ago and it worked really well. I stuff the tent and rain fly into my bag and the slide the poles in next to the rest of my gear, so they are short enough to fit into my pack. Hope that helps, sorry I don't have an exact measurement. Cheers and happy campimg!
