Offering luxurious living quarters, the REI Taj 3 is a three-season, three-person backpacking tent that wont weigh you down. Doors are easy to enter and exit, and vestibules offer ample space for gear storage. Sturdy combi-pole design offers a roomy interior for comfort inside the tent. No-see-um mesh doors, window and ceiling panels provide excellent ventilation and visibility. Insider floor seams are engineered to create a nice, clean taut pitch and maximize floor space factory seam-taping ensures a waterproof seal. Polyester rainfly stays taut even when wet and features two built-in vestibules, an upper vent and a clear film window for viewing outside conditions. New, leakproof rainfly construction ensures that water wont sneak through susceptible areas, such as guy-out points and zippers, in wet conditions. Attic included and three interior pockets make it easy to organize gear. Attention to detail shows in the reflective zipper pulls and guylines, ladder-loc tie-downs on rainfly and pole wraps that secure rainfly to tent. Footprint sold separately extends the life of your tent by protecting it from abrasive wear and tear. Save weight by creating a minimalist shelter using rainfly, poles and footprint only. Comes with guylines and tighteners, stakes, pole repair tube, pole and stake bags and tapered, easy-to-stuff compression stuff sack. Average minimum weight based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Special buy.

awesome 3 season tent 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: 8flood8, 2007-10-14

i love this tent. yes. 2 persons + gear, or 2 persons +dog. Three people is an orgy in that thing. That being said. total pack weight is 7lbs+, so you can divide the weight between those who are sleeping in it. full coverage rain fly and nice and breezy

I have had this tent for about 2 seasons now, using it for at least a dozen trips a year. Its held up great and sleeps me, a friend, and my dog (90lbs German Shepherd) with space to spare. I particularly like how tall it is and its just huge for a great price.

Great for car camping and River trips 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: climbingaggie03, 2007-09-28

I bought this tent for road tripping climbing trip, basically car camping. It's great for 2 people, I lived in it for 2 months with another guy, we both liked our space and had enough of it. I've seen a few rainy days in it and it stayed plenty dry on the inside. It would be crowded for 3, but reasonable if weight was a big deal. It is not light, and I would not take it back packing, but if I don't have to carry it very far, it is my number 1 choice. It doesn't have much vestibule space, and can be a bit finicky to stake out, but these are my only complaints, and are fairly minor ones.

For two people it is a huge tent by todays standards. A little snug for three but workable. Not real light at 8lbs with rainfly and ground cloth, but if you split the load it is reasonable. Holds up great to big winds and thunderstorms. Not a drop of water inside. Nice and wide open on a rainless night.
