Geared specifically for the hiker and climber interested in winter mountaineering, the Mountain Hardwear Trango 3.1 tent is one of the strongest and elaborately-engineered products on the market today. No matter the conditions, the review on this product has shown that it is an ideal option for not only hardcore alpine enthusiasts, but the average consumer looking for a great tent.


Designed to be set up easily and quickly in the harshest conditions, the tent has pole clips which allow the user to affix the DAC Featherlite poles quickly. These also take into account accurate load-bearing capability using the full surface area.

This allows the tent to be strong if lightweight, particularly due to the fact that the DAC Featherlite poles have extrusions rather than inserts. Minimizing breakage potential, they are anodized for strength.

The doors are comprised of a mesh and fabric mix, allowing for protection from the elements and also much-needed visibility with two clear windows. The patented Evolution Tension Arch technology creates a stronger tent skeleton with easy accessibility and overflow storage, but still maintaining good ventilation when needed.

Watertight, the construction incorporates welded clip anchors and corners, with a taped fly and taped seams. To improve the comfort level, it also features a dry-entry vestibule, preventing water from dripping into the tent.

The floor is something to write home about as well. Featuring a nylon floor with non-hydrolyzing, 3000mm-rated polyether urethane coating, it is essentially water repellent to aid in dryness.

Major Benefits

  • There are a number of canopy pockets to keep one organized.
  • The poles are color coded to help aid in quick setup.
