When you’re spending quality time outdoors, the last thing you need is for the rain and wind to spoil your fun. Scorpion is an expert in this field.
A new addition to the Snugpak range, the Scorpion 3 is a sleek, three person tent, designed and built to fend off those fierce winds that kick up from time to time, and for long term hard use. With its 5000mm PU fly, it can also handle large amounts of rain, making sure you and your gear stay dry.
The Scorpion 3™ is also a Fly First pitch type tent so you can quickly set up the fly and seek shelter from the elements.

For individuals over 6’5 you may want to try this tent out to see if it will work for you. I had a friend of mine hope in and he fit comfortably at that height but if he was any taller it wouldn’t.
Like most three person tents you can cramp three people in but two will be comfortable. three will be close.
Great for Stealth camping
Vestibule will keep out the rain
I use a foot print with all of my tents and this is no exception. That is a personal choice to extend the life of the product.
There are three poles, and each pole is color coded to a small piece of fabric on the end of pole sleeve (2 identical poles with green pole selections to match to two sections of green band, and gray to gray). This tent is a fly first pitch.
The pole sleeves were really reinforced, and I see them lasting a long time as it is a tougher material rubberized type of material.
