For backpackers and campers who appreciate extra square footage and open, airy architecture. The Optic offers a new twist on traditional tents with full-size doors on adjacent sides that zip away to create an open vista. Various tie-backs for the vestibule allow you to customize your view up to 180 degrees. With more space than a standard 3-person tent, the Optic 3.5 easily fits two of you plus whatever else you want to bring along.

    Comments about Mountain Hardwear Optic 3.5 Tent:

    I camp on the weekends with my girlfriend and dog. This tent sets up easy, is water tight, and has plenty of room for the three of us.

    Side note - customer service was extremely helpful. They jumped through hoops to expedite the shipment to help me get the tent in time for a trip.

    Used this tent for two weeks in every possible condition all around colorado. Not only is it easy to set up but its great quality. I can't wait to get the 2.5 for a new backpacking tent. Mountain Hardwear once again stays true to there quality
