|Goondie 3-30D Nylon|
The Goondie 30D tents have fliesÂ made from 30 denier polyester, a slightly heavier and sturdier fabric than the 15 denier series. These gorgeous orange numbers are not only easier to spot than the lighter version, they have higher UV resistance, making them better suited for four-season use.
The Goondie 3-30D is a practical, lightweight, three-person tent that doesn't sacrifice comfort for the sake of saving a few grams. It is very similar to its siblings but larger - who would have guessed! It has two external doors, allowing three people to access the tent and vestibules easily. This tent is suitable for four-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 vestibules can be rolled halfway up, creating fantastic flow-through ventilation even in the wet, bringing comfort in warmer conditions. When itâ€™s cold outside, the full nylon inner adds insulation while the durable, water-repellent finish (DWR) prevents condensation dripping inside the tent. 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.
