"The Hoolie Compact 3 is a 3 person tunnel tent that’s reliable and spacious.
The large porch, fully taped flysheet and groundsheet make it ideal for cycle touring and group use such as expeditions for DofE Awards, Scouts and Guides.
Updated for 2020 so it is easier to pitch and put away than the Hoolie 3 when it’s time to go home.
The Hoolie Compact 3, 3 person tunnel tent provides lots of space for its relative weight and compact pack-size of just 30cm long. The porch area is bigger than similar tents available, so it’s a good choice for cycle touring and group use - it’s a proven, popular model for Duke of Edinburgh’s award expeditions, Scouts and other youth group participants.
The spacious tunnel design means the Hoolie Compact 3 is ideal for longer trips where campers might be looking for more room, or good for general campsite stays. It’s also suitable for those venturing off the beaten track and wild camping.
This tunnel tent design, with 2 poles the same length, is fast and simple to pitch at the end of the day.
The inner is attached to the flysheet, so the tent pitches "as one". Inner and flysheet pegging points are also combined making it even quicker to set up.
When it’s time to go, the tent is quick to pack away in the tarp style bag.
There is plenty of ventilation – vents under the hood at the front and end of the tent plus a mesh panel on the inner door.
The tent comes with Superflex lightweight alloy poles and is made from proven Wild Country, high performance polyester flysheet and groundsheet fabrics which are taped to provide waterproof protection.
This tent has been designed for Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expeditions and other youth group camps – a quick pitch at the end at the day, whatever the weather, with plenty of room to store boots and rucksacks. Easy to carry with a compact pack size."
