With 4 modes—Optimist, Stargazer, Breeze-Way and Privacy—to let you quickly adapt to changing conditions, the 3-season Exped Lyra III tent is lightweight, compact and roomy enough for 3 people.

  • Features

    • In Optimist Mode™, set up without the fly to maximize ventilation and skyward views, while keeping bugs and other crawlies out
    • In Stargazer Mode™, roll back and secure the head end of the fly to the spreader-pole, revealing full night-sky views
    • In Breeze-Way Mode™, open both doors for cooling, flow-through ventilation in warm weather
    • In Privacy Mode™, fully attach and zip up the fly to achieve maximum privacy and weatherproofing
    • Pole-clips secure the tent to the hubbed, shockcorded poleset for easy setup without the fly; micro-hubs strengthen intersections and eliminate wear of fly at critical points
    • Tie-back loops and toggles hold the fly doors rolled and open for maximum ventilation; ties at the apex hold the rolled fly in position in Stargazer Mode
    • 2 U-shaped, horizontally oriented doors allow smooth, one-handed operation; doors can be secured to the side and out of the way when fully opened
    • Each of the 2 vestibule doors is equipped with low-profile prop-wands, which open the upper end of the zipper for ventilation and are secured with a hook-and-loop fastener
    • Canopy is built with no-see-um polyester mesh to let air in and keep insects out; lower walls are made of polyester taffeta, creating a privacy panel
    • Steep tent walls maximize headroom and volume; rectangular floor plan fits 3 sleeping mats and ensures efficient use of space
    • Multiple interior loops are provided for adding overhead clotheslines
    • 2 pockets at the head end provide convenient storage for small items; a small, overhead pocket secures a headlamp and diffuses the beam to evenly light up the tent
    • Floor is made with 68-denier polyurethane-coated polyester taffeta with factory-taped seams to keep water out
    • 12 included SwissPiranha tent pegs offer excellent holding power at a very low weight; guylines at each end of the sleeping section increase stability in breezy conditions
    • Glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls on inner tent and vestibule doors light up long into the night, allowing zippers to be quickly located in the dark
    • Integrated pole/stake bag design separates poles from tent pegs and accessories, keeping these components organized
    • Rainfly, canopy and floor are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified, meaning the product has been tested for harmful substances and shown to meet rigorous human ecology criteria
