  • External guy points for stability in wind
  • All main fly and floor seams are factory sealed

  • Gear loops and pockets keep personal items organized


  • Gemini III tent fits 3 medium-size or 2 large-wide Exped sleeping mats (sold separately) for a perfect night's sleep

  • Rainfly vents ensure air circulation to prevent condensation
  • Fly vents aid with ventilation

  • Guylines attach directly to the pole structure and increase stability in high winds; guylines are easy to access through the rainfly vents

  • 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

  • Fly is an ultra light PU coated Sil/Nylon

  • As a convenient option, poles and rainfly can be set up with the footprint (sold separately) to create a lightweight shelter
  • Fire Retardant
  • 2 doors for easy entry or exit
  • 2 vestibules for storage

The Exped Gemini 3 is a stable and sturdy 3 person tent. It has 2 doors for easy livability and 2 large vestibules. The vestibules are the perfect place to store wet or excess gear. The DAC FeatherLite NSL shockcorded aluminum poles are simple to use and highly reliable. The 2 side entry doors are great because they are opposite sides and that means it's easier for 3 to live in the tent. The full coverage fly is a lightweight RipStop Sil/nylon with a PU coating. It is light, strong and dependable.

Exped Gemini III Tent Review:


Great technical family tent

With the recent addition to our family we were on the hunt for a bigger tent to hold all four of us on our outdoor adventures. We do a lot of paddling and backpacking, so we didn't want a huge car camping tent. After to talking to some friends we thought we'd take a chance on the Gemini III. We were really glad that we did. We've owned several different tents and this is by far the easiest and fastest to setup. There's lots of attention paid to small details that make this a fabulous tent...numbered sleeves, color coded clips, dual purpose guy-wire bags/visibility flags, etc.

For families with small kids (we've got 2 under 5) it's a great tent. The high ceiling means your kids can stand up in the tent and not push on the walls. The vertical doors also mean that your kids (and adults) can enter the tent more easily without a lot of squatting or leaning on the tent. The door flaps hinge from the top of the tent, so when your kids unzip the door flap it won't flop in the mud nor will your kids be able to step on it with their muddy boots. I'd definitely recommend this tent for your family. The vestibules are also big enough to store all of our stuff from the rain.

I only wish REI carried more of the tents in the store so you could try them out before buying, at least the return policy is great!
