Exped Gemini III Tent


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • High-volume comfort in a compact design: creative pole geometry creates steep walls on all sides to provide ample space for sitting, sleeping and dressing
  • Wide, high doors enhance comfort; vestibules are large enough to hold packs, shoes and a even a dog
  • Poles are fed into the continuous pole sleeves from the top of the tent and then easily secured with the Arc Connectors; this allows poles to be inserted while standing up
  • Light yet strong, DAC Featherlite® NSL poles are anodized without the use of harmful acids
  • Fine mosquito mesh keeps the tiniest bugs out and enhances ventilation on hot summer nights; nylon panels on sides and roof keep wind and condensation out
  • Rainfly vents ensure air circulation to prevent condensation
  • Guylines attach directly to the pole structure and increase stability in high winds; guylines are easy to access through the rainfly vents
  • When fully guyed out, the Exped Gemini III tent rivals the strength of many 4-season structures
  • Gear loops and pockets keep personal items organized
  • Includes partitioned stuff sack, stakes and guyline/tighteners
  • Gemini III tent fits 3 medium-size or 2 large-wide Exped sleeping mats (sold separately) for a perfect night's sleep
  • As a convenient option, poles and rainfly can be set up with the footprint (sold separately) to create a lightweight shelter
