Product Description

Manufacturer's description

The REI Cirque 3 offers not only high livability and full-featured comfort, but also strength, weatherproof protection and low weight—it's perfect for light winter weather.


•Dual doors and vestibules provide user-friendly entry/exit and space for gear
•Dual AirLift vents in the rainfly let wind pass through, lifting the tent slightly for increased stability and cross-flow ventilation
•Generous asymmetrical floor plan and reverse-combi pole design places the tent's volume where it maximizes comfort
•Clip and pole-sleeve design combine to provide easy setup, enhanced ventilation and structural integrity
•Mesh ceiling and door panels provide excellent ventilation and allow stargazing in clear weather; nylon panels seal them shut in lousy weather
•DAC Featherlite® NSL pole system features superlight, strong poles with press-fit connectors
•Insider floor seams are engineered to create a taut pitch and to maximize floor space; factory seam-taping ensures a waterproof seal
•Vestibule doors can be rolled up half way or completely out of the way
•Leakproof rainfly ensures that water won't sneak through susceptible areas, such as guyout points and zippers
•Attention to detail shows with reflective guy points, adjustable cleat-lock tie-downs on rainfly and inside tent pockets to keep small items organized
•Comes with guylines and tighteners, stakes, pole repair tube, pole and stake bags and tapered, easy-to-stuff compression stuff sack

Great tent

We were looking for a tent that could handle 3 seasons plus some winter camping, without the weight of a 4 season tent. The tent weights less than 6.5 lbs, and fits 2 people and their gear very comfortably. It would be tight for a 3 person, even though it is a 3 person tent. We split the weight up and end up with just over 3 lbs for the two of us. All screens have covers that close up for harsh weather, and the fly covers the tent well, with two vestibules, one at each door. The tent is very strong and when staked, it is very secure for harsh weather camping.
