Black Diamond Vista 3-Person Tent -

"The Black Diamond Vista is by far one of the easiest tents to set up that I have ever used! The major issue with a lot of backpacking tents is that they feel more like coffins than a shelter and you tend to only be inside them as little as possible, but that is not the case here. Black Diamond did an amazing job with this bad boy! There is enough room in this tent for three people plus a dog, or two people and two larger dogs. My friend that goes camping with me is 6'5" which too tall if you ask me. In most tents he has to sleep on an angle, taking up more room in the tent and leaving less for me, but with the Vista there is plenty of room for him without having to sleep on an angle. There is plenty of room to sit up and move around as well. The Vista tent has a freestanding hub style that offers more headroom and raises the walls nicely, giving the feeling of a more spacious area. The entire tent sets up quickly and easily, including the fly and vestibule. So if you're tall, or just like a lot of room in a backpacking and camping tent, this is a great option."

The Vista Shelter by Black Diamond will have you covered. High ceilings and a large floor plan provide room for all plus dual vestibules built into the fly add storage space for wet or muddy gear to dry.

Black Diamond Vista 3-Person Tent Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

This is the only 3 man tent I've found that actually fits 3 men comfortably. I have used it on several hikes in the Tetons and mountains of central Idaho. We've been in all types of weather and have never had issues. The set up is incredibly easy.
A few weeks ago I purchased the footprint for this tent. Upon receiving it, my two boys and I decided to sleep outside using just the footprint and rain fly. That's when I found out my boys had stored the rain fly wet after their last excursion. It was covered in mildew and smelled terrible. Oddly enough, the tent was absolutely fine. I called Black Diamond to see if I could purchase just the rain fly, since I knew it wasn't a warranty issue. They put me into warranties anyway and a guy named Eric informed me that they have found several instances of the tents purchased around 2010 having this problem. He told me to ship it back and they would replace it with a complete new Vista. All I'm paying for is the return shipping. Plus he told me I could keep all my stakes and poles. They just want the tent and fly. Awesome customer service by Black Diamond, especially when it wasn't expected.

This tent has been through the wind, light snow, ice & rain, and some basic warmer spring/fall weather, too. Performed perfect and as expected in all situations. I use the ground cloth with it as precipitation seems to follow me everywhere I pack. Sets up very quickly, even in rain, and everything stays dry. Ice popped right off, although the poles did get a little difficult to take down due to the ice build up at the connections. Still, it's up and down in a cinch.
There is plenty of room inside the tent for clothes and small items. In my case, I could fit a pack in there (had I wanted to) because I use a petite bag. The zippers were easy to use and I cannot stress how easy set up was.
Cons: It is a heavier tent because of its size and solidness. A minimalist probably needs to look for something different. It can easily be split between packs to lessen its bulk and weight.
Every time I go backpacking, I see at least one more of these tents on trail or in camp.
Great three season tent!

It's a little bulky, but the weight to size ratio is amazing! I'm 6'3" and have no problem stretching out without butting into the sides, and there is more than enough room for me, my wife and our 3 large dogs.Last weekend we were in a torrential downpour with gusting winds in every direction at 12,000', and everything inside the tent and vestibules stayed bone dry. Some of the user photos make the rain fly look loose and flimsy, but there's no problem cinching it down tight as a drum.Aired it out in advance and no bug issues. The only criticism, as others have noted, is that the vestibule doors seem to be on the wrong side in relation to the tent door, so you have to open the tent door completely to get through the vestibule door. No big deal, but I would expect BD to reconfigure the set up.Highly recommended!

I did a lot of research before settling on this tent and I couldn't be more pleased. Our very first night in the High Country a dynamic storm came rolling through. I wasn't really prepared for the wind and so had minimally staked the tent, but it held up fantastic. It also didn't even blink at the torrential downpour we had. In fact the whole trip I was warm and dry. I bought this tent specifically to fit my cot, as I'm not a hardcore on the floor camper, and believe me it is a perfect one woman tent. Plenty of room for all my stuff.

This is our family default tent for bike, car, or backpack camping. Fits 3 adults with room and vestibule of 4 kids. Durable, light-ish, and pretty good during summer as a bug tent with no fly. Never tired it in winter but for a 3 season tent its hard to beat. Luxury for sure, but worth it if you are carrying a double wall tent.

Ben C at on 09/05/2013

Pros: I really like this tent. It is lightweight for amount of floorspace it has. It is rock solid in high wind, when properly tied down.
Cons: It is kind of annoying that the poles are one huge piece. Zipper can get stuck in the rain fly quite a bit, but can easily be avoided.
Black diamond has great customer service. Hard not to support this company.

In my humble opinion, The Black Diamond Vista 3 is a shines in the tent market as the best tent on the market. Why? Well, it truly fits me, my dog and my two girlfriends. Most tent company claim their 3 person tent is just that or that it’s comfy but truly they aren’t. The Vista 3 is spacious and super easy to set-up.

Negative Reviews:

The stitching on the Velcro closure of the vestibule door failed on the first night we used the tent. It would be a simple thing to fix, but it is an indication of poor workmanship, and leads to a loss of faith in the quality of the tent. We sent it back. The return process is very easy - has superb customer service.
