This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

The North Face single-wall Phoenix 3 tent is a light, freestanding backpacking abode with room for 3 people and luxurious amounts of headspace.

  • DryWall™ proprietary single-skin fabric has high breathability, high tensile strength, and a Durable Water Repellent finish
  • DryWall is inherently fire resistant which eliminates the need to add fire retardant to its polyurethane coating; this saves weight and increases breathability and strength
  • Double doors and vestibules ease access, provide storage and enhance cross-ventilation options
  • High-low ventilation design harnesses convection and cross flow to help expel moisture vapor and prevent interior condensation
  • Pole twist clips make tent pitching and disassembly simple and fast, while saving weight
  • Light yet strong, DAC Featherlite® NSL poles are anodized without the use of harmful acids
  • Reverse-combi poles change the pole arcs to allow the tent walls to be steeper; tent's livable space is maximized for greater comfort and headroom
  • Handy interior loops allow you to hang your headlamp and other accessories; polyurethane windows (one in each vestibule) let light in and allow a view to the outside
  • Phoenix 3 tent includes stuff sacks, DAC stakes and guyline/tighteners

The North Face Phoenix 3 Tent - 2012 Closeoutis rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromSize without WeightI bought this as part of a mountain survival kit to be carried in a single-engine aircraft. I required a kit 20lbs or less and I wanted some kind of shelter that offered wind and water protection. It had to be light and capable of sheltering four people. This tent is under 5 lbs packed - one of the lightest floored tents I could find in this size. This can shelter four in a pinch, although it is more comfy for three. The single hull (no fly) keeps weight down and pitching simple while still being appropriate for three seasons and the fourth season in an emergency. The only drawback, if that's even the right word, is that the doors are half mesh with no closeable flap. I'd have preferred sealable doors that can just be zipped shut regardless of whether the vestibules (one over each door) are staked out or not - that would conserve heat better. In this design you have to stake out the vestibules to provide your 'seal' - so the vestibules are required for full wind protection and that means more volume to warm and more loss of heat. Not a huge complaint especially if you use this is as it is designed - as a 3-season tent. Overall it is a good size for the weight and pitching was fast without a fly to mess with.

Rated5out of5byfromSo Far so goodBought this at a discounted price on the Outlet. Also used my members only 20% off - great price!. I set it up in the back yard. I will take it backpacking this summer. So far, I am impressed by it's light weight, roominess, and easy set up. I have not yet had the chance to put it to the real test in the wilderness yet. I am hiking the chilkoot trail this summer with it. I will let you know how it goes.
