The Snugpak® Scorpion 3™ is a sleek angled compact three-person tent. It is a ‘Fly-First’ pitch tent that allows a quick and easy set-up with an opposing pole design, that keeps condensation build-up to a minimum. The inner tent is made of a No-See-Um Mesh Mosquito Net to keep out bugs, snakes, etc.

The Scorpion 3™ will shelter you from the worst four-season weather, with a 5000mm hydrostatic head (HH) polyurethane (PU) coated flysheet, with taped seams. The Scorpion 3™ has an impressive sleeping space, measuring 220cm/87” long and 110cm/43” wide, creating ample room for three people in a top-toe sleeping arrangement with an additional spacious front porch for extra storage. In an emergency, there is enough space to accommodate up to six people sitting down.

The sleek angled profile of the Scorpion 3™ tent packs down small with a light trail weight of 6.4lbs / 2.9kg Using tried and tested lightweight DAC® aluminium poles, it does not take up valuable space in your pack, making it an ideal choice when light weight and small pack size are essential.
