A proper 3 person sized backpacking tent that you just wont want to take down.

Jaran 3 is a very roomy backpacking tent for 2 people, or a cosy tent for 3 people. Its headroom means you can comfortably sit upright and twin porches gives plenty of storage space for muddy boots and rain-drenched bags. All seams are factory-taped using waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape.

If you are traveling as a pair or trio, you will be able to split the weight of the tent between the group so you can afford to choose a tent with more generous spacing. At just over 1 kg per person, the Jaran will easily become your go-to choice of tent.

After a busy day of rambling, kayaking, climbing or just having fun, having a diligently designed tent will certainly increase your chances of getting a good night’s sleep. The colour-coded webbing on Jaran 3 assists you in setting up quickly without too much fumbling in the dark.

The thicker fabric of Jaran 3 gives it increased durability- ideal for longer trips where it is harder to ensure optimum pitching conditions. On adventurous journeys, you can never perfectly predict the weather. Whether you are knocking around in the outback of Oz or exploring mountains in the Lakes, the horizontal crossbar incorporated in Jaran 3 increases the stability and spaciousness of the tent. However, Jaran 3 strikes a wonderful balance between space and still keeping the weight to 2.36 kg.

Jaran 3 benefits from having two sizable vestibules (136 cm x 74 cm) which after a week or two of tent life, you will be undoubtedly grateful for. When you are sharing a tent with 2 others, after a few days you will certainly appreciate not having to wake up with their socks and boots in your face.
