Mountain Hardwear Skyledge 3 DP Tent VIDEO REVIEW
Mountain Hardware got the formula right with the Skyledge 3 DP Tent – it’s lightweight, compact and well designed. The DryPitch option alone is worth the ticket price. Combine this with innovative DAC "Toys" that make set up and tear down a snap, along with two doors and two vestibules and you can see why this tent is so easy to love. The smart design includes easily adjustable reflective guy wires, adjustable door ties, offset doors, large interior gear storage pockets, easily adjustable fly peg outs, gear attic, internal tie out points for additional support on windy days, and glow in the dark zipper pulls.
There is plenty of ventilation built into the Skyledge 3 DP. The full screened tent canopy ensures that bugs stay out and moisture can be minimized with healthy air exchange. Protecting you from below is the 70 denier fabric tent floor which is the beefiest we have reviewed to date. Pair this with the ground sheet and you have an admirable defence against rock, nicks and moisture. It is unfortunate that there is a seam running the full length of the floor as this screams cost savings and could be an eventual failing point for water to penetrate as materials and seams wear. A full bathtub construction floor would also be a huge plus to keep all seams well away from the ground where moisture could penetrate. On the top side, the fly is made of 20 denier ripstop nylon with a PU/silicone coating so it’s good and waterproof but also very lightweight when compared to other tent flies.
