Crux X3 Bunker Tent: 3-Person 4-Season


Product Details

By putting an emphasis on strength rather than weight, the engineers at Crux have created a strong, versatile base camp shelter with the X3 Bunker 3-Person, 4-Season Tent. Designed to weather the storm while you wait for the weather to clear for your summit attempt, the X3 Bunker has a double-wall construction with a stout 45D ripstop nylon fly treated and a silicone coating rated for up to 7000mm of protection from snow. The inner canopy is composed of a 30D high-tenacity nylon for additional protection from the elements. The groundsheet is comprised of a 90-denier PU coated taffeta nylon that is not only water-resistant, but will readily resist tearing. Two entry points further increase this tent's versatility, while a large front and shortened rear vestibules provide plenty of space to ready equipment and cook food out of the elements. Five DAC Featherlite NSL poles strike a balance between strength and weight, while two vents at the front of the fly help to promote breathability. Internal storage pockets give you a place to stow small pieces of gear. And with six Dyneema guylines fitted with mini-Linelok adjusters, you can sleep easy when things are socked in knowing your tent is secure.

Winter Tents Checklist

Quality? Thankfully, most four-season tents are high-quality. You can't go wrong getting a tent by The North Face, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear or Black Diamond.
Don't Get Too Big! Due to the bulk of winter camping gear, many people get "too large" of a tent. Unless you truly have use for a large tent (due to having more people), it's better to match the tent's size to the number of people.
Smaller Tents Stay Warmer. A smaller tent will stay warmer with the same people in it. Thus, a tent designed for four people (but which has only two people in it), will not be as warm as a two-person tent with two people in it. Yes, it's common sense, but many people forget about it.
Convertible Tents? There are a few four-season winter tents that are known as "convertible tents," working for both three season and four-season uses. These tents are alright for late fall/early spring use where there exists a high probability of winter weather. However, convertible tents are NOT ideal for either intense winter camping OR normal three-season use.
If You Camp in Both Winter And Summer. Instead of getting a convertible tent, it's best to get one dedicated tent for three-season use and another for dedicated four-season use. It's not necessarily anymore expensive, either.
