Is the Stephenson WarmLite the lightest three-person tent?

Guilty as charged. The Stephenson tents are such niche products that I sometimes overlook them. Not that being a niche product is a bad thing! Not at all! And the WarmLite is a tent that’s well worth considering. It’s a hoop tent, meaning it has two semi-circular poles, one at each end. This is a lighter construction method than a freestanding tent, although obviously you have to stake the ends out tightly. The poles are pre-bent for greater strength and combined with very lightweight fabric to make an extremely light tent-three pounds, 12 ounces for the model 3R, which sleeps three. In an interesting construction feature, the WarmLite is a double-wall tent in which both fabric layers are waterproofed.

  1. I’m a hunting guide on Kodiak Island. I recently did my mountian goat season with a heavy north face bastion 4 tent. A bomber as they call it. 100mph winds bent everypole on the tent. Knocked people over trying to stand up. The exposed terrain up there is brutal. I’m looking to get shorter to the ground, lighter in the tent and find someone whose tent can handle the conditions I work in. Does your warmlight 3 person tent fit the bill? These tents are exspensive. My clients have a lot invested in there trip. I need gear that’s not gonna embarrass me or the name on the side of it. Let me here your thoughts!

    1. Thanks for your questions Jake! I believe you and your clients would be very happy in a Warmlite tent. Our tents are rated for winds upwards of 160 mph when using our wind stabilizers, this is sewn into and becomes one with the tent when you order your tent.
