In the midst of a fierce storm, the Snugpak Scorpion 3 IX 3 Person Tent stands as a resilient fortress against the elements. Its sleek angled design, combined with a fly-first pitch setup, ensures a quick and efficient installation even in adverse conditions. As rain and wind lash against its robust exterior, the tent's opposing pole design minimizes condensation buildup, keeping the interior dry and comfortable.

Crafted from high-quality materials, the Scorpion 3 IX boasts a 5000mm hydrostatic head (HH) polyurethane (PU) coated flysheet with taped seams, offering exceptional waterproof protection. This tent is built to withstand the harshest of four-season weather, safeguarding you and your companions from the relentless downpour outside.

Inside the tent, the spacious sleeping area measures 220cm/87" in length and 110cm/43" in width, allowing for a comfortable sleeping arrangement for up to three individuals in a top-to-toe configuration. Additionally, a generous front porch provides ample storage space for gear and equipment. In case of an emergency, the tent can even accommodate up to six people in a sitting position.

Despite its durability and roomy interior, the Scorpion 3 IX remains impressively lightweight, with a trail weight of just 6.4lbs/2.9kg. The inclusion of tried and tested lightweight anodized aluminum poles ensures that the tent won't burden you during your outdoor excursions, fitting seamlessly into your pack without occupying excessive space.

The tent's design also prioritizes ventilation, featuring three vents that facilitate airflow and minimize condensation. The inner tent is made of a No-See-Um mesh mosquito net, effectively keeping bugs, snakes, and other unwelcome critters at bay while allowing for optimal airflow.

The Snugpak Scorpion 3 IX comes equipped with essential accessories to enhance your camping experience. It includes 20 alloy Y stakes for secure anchoring, and a basic repair kit, ensuring you can address any unforeseen damages promptly. The tent's pack size measures 17 x 8 inches (43 x 21cm), and it comes with a compression stuff sack for convenient storage and transportation.

Renowned among mountaineers, climbers, campers, and military personnel, the Scorpion 3 IX is a trusted companion that provides year-round protection from extreme weather conditions. It is a testament to durability, versatility, and the unwavering resilience required in the face of nature's wrath.

  • Capacity: The tent can accommodate up to three people comfortably, making it ideal for small groups or families.

  • Design: The Scorpion 3 IX features a compact and lightweight design, making it easy to carry and transport. It also has a low profile shape that helps to withstand strong winds and resist water penetration.

  • Material: The tent is made of high-quality materials that are both durable and breathable. The outer flysheet is made of 210t Ripstop Polyester with a 5000mm waterproof PU coating, while the inner tent is made of 190t breathable Nylon Polyester Mesh.

  • Ventilation: The tent has multiple vents that allow for adequate airflow and help to reduce condensation inside the tent. It also has mesh panels on the inner tent for increased ventilation and to keep insects out.

  • Easy to pitch: The Scorpion 3 IX is designed to be easy to set up and take down. The tent comes with a color-coded pole system, making it easy to identify and connect the correct poles.

  • Additional features: The tent comes with a repair kit, a set of stakes and guy ropes, and a compression stuff sack for easy storage and transport.

Snugpak Scorpion 3

I purchased this tent after some lengthy research into a 3/4 season tent sporting a relatively small pack size compared to my Cabela's Alaskan Guide tent. The dry run setup was quick and smooth, overall construction felt solid and the fly looks like it will shed water well. Looking forward to using it for some back country camping in the near future to break it in!

Also shout out to Mad City Outdoor's due diligence to stay in touch regarding the progress of ordering the tent, preparing for shipment, etc. I'm not someone who needs the "prime shipping" treatment, I'd much rather have transparency on the status of my order from a real human so that will make me come back to Mad City Outdoor for future orders of gear.

Great tent

Snugpak are the best tents I've used. Can't go wrong.

Solid tent

Although it took longer than expected to receive, I will not doc a star because Mad City Outdoor offered this tent at the best price I could find. The tent itself is constructed well and was easy to set up. It also got back into the carrying bag fairly easily. Three people could fit in this tent if necessary, but limiting to just two people would be much more comfortable. Thanks Mad City 👍🏼
