|Goondie 3-30D Mesh|
Mesh by name, airy by nature...Â Goondie Mesh tents are perfectÂ for warmer, more humid climates as theirÂ inners are made mostly from mesh, allowing fantastic breathability and air flow.Â (It also makes the mesh version a bit lighter than the standard alternative.)Â The vestibules can be rolled halfway up, creating fantastic flow-through ventilation even in the wet, bringing comfort in warmer conditions. Or the inner can be pitched alone for the ultimate in lightweight, cool camping. The 30-denier fly makes this a tad heavier and more durable than the 15-denier option.
This is a practical, lightweight, three-person tent that doesn't sacrifice comfort for the sake of saving a few grams. It has two external doors, allowing three people to access the tent and vestibules easily. This tent is suitable for three-season use, and the freestanding construction and sturdy floor (no footprint required) make it easy to put up. The overhanging vestibules keep the inside dry even when the fly doors are open, while the mid-size YKK zips are easy to reach. All this, and its total weight is under three kilograms - what else do you need?
The Goondie tent series has high-walled, bathtub floors made from hard-wearing, 100 denier PU-coated HT nylon â€“ so tough that a footprint for under the tent is not needed. The Goondie is freestanding, needing a minimum of two pegs to hold the vestibules out. (Two â€˜mega pegsâ€™ are included, as well as four alloy pegs for the guy lines.) When not in use, the four storm guys tuck into handy little pockets built into the reinforcing tabs.
The Goondie 3-30D fly is made from 30 denier polyester with a silicone/PU coating and is fully factory seam-sealed. It's slightly heavier and sturdier than the 15 denier version, with higher UV resistance, making it better suited for prolonged use.
