The Scorpion 3™ IX is a sleek angled compact three-person tent. It is a 'Fly-First' pitch tent that allows a quick and easy setup with an opposing pole design, that keeps condensation build-up to a minimum. The inner tent is made of a No-See-Um mesh mosquito net to keep out bugs, snakes, etc.
The Scorpion 3™ IX will shelter you from the worst of four-season weather, with a 5000mm hydrostatic head (HH) polyurethane (PU) coated flysheet, with taped seams. The Scorpion 3™ IX has an impressive sleeping space, measuring 220cm/87" long and 110cm/43" wide, creating ample room for three people in a top-toe sleeping arrangement with an additional spacious front porch for extra storage. In an emergency, there is enough space to accommodate up to six people sitting down.
The sleek angled profile of the Scorpion 3™ IX tent packs down small with a light trail weight of 6.4lbs/2.9kg. Using tried and tested lightweight anodised aluminum poles, it does not take up valuable space in your pack, making it an ideal choice when light weight and small pack size are essential.
The Scorpion 3™ IX is a true tried and tested favorite of mountaineers, climbers, campers & military personnel that protects you all year round from severe weather conditions.

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