The 3-person version of their bestselling Portal tent, the Portal 3 keeps the best parts of the 2-person and bumps the size up to accommodate a third adventure partner. Like its siblings, the Portal 3 maximizes its strength-to-weight ratio by incorporating several features developed for their Expedition Series tents, like the OutRigger attachment, pre-installed internal guylines, and numerous external guy points.

The Portal 3 is more than a scaled-up version of the Portal 2. With beefier poles to compensate for the tent's larger wind profile and a split ceiling pocket at the head for better accessibility by multiple people, we crafted the Portal 3 from the ground up with just as much attention to detail as the original Portal. We tested the Portal 3 on everything from multiday whitewater trips in the American Southwest to the Icelandic highlands to ensure that the Portal 3 will be a steadfast companion no matter where the trail (or river, or road) takes you.

10D Nylon 66 Ripstop silicone-coated flysheet fabric is basically magic, with better UV resistance than fabrics three times its weight, super low water absorption (aka quick dry times), and incredible mold/mildew resistance. The silicone coating will not break down in your closet and produce that "old tent smell" that haunts well-loved gear. The 20D PE-coated floor fabric strikes a good balance between light weight and durability and doesn't absorb water, unlike PU-coated floor fabrics. It also has far more hydrolytic stability than PU coatings and won't become flaky and smelly with time. Pre-installed spare sliders on all the zippers double your zippers' lifespan and eliminate the need for half-baked field repairs when you're 90% of the way to the terminus of whatever long trail you're on.


  • Two doors and two vestibules
  • Two pre-installed internal guylines give the Portal great lateral stability for almost no weight increase.
  • KickStand vents make ventilation a breeze. Opposing struts on the vestibule doors provide unrestricted cross-tent airflow for excellent condensation management without sacrificing weather protection.
  • High-volume pole structure with a swivel provides well-distributed headroom without the weakness of hubs.
  • Pole swivel connects long poles for easy setup
  • All the pockets you could ever want (three ceiling, two head, two side, one foot).
  • 10 external guy points and 2 perimeter pull-outs provide ample reinforcement.
  • External guy points correspond to flysheet-to-pole attachments to increase stability.
  • Matching reflective tabs on fly and tent body simplify setup.
  • Color-coordinated stake loops for easy flysheet orientation.
  • Pre-installed spare zipper sliders on every zipper double your zippers' lifespan.
  • Can be pitched with footprint (not included) and fly for a minimalist weather shelter.
  • 2-side silicone impregnated flysheet and PE floor fabric are mildew-resistant and have excellent hydrolytic stability, and will last significantly longer than traditional PU-coated fabrics.
  • Includes 10 DAC J-Stakes and 10 additional external guylines (not including 2 pre-installed internal guylines)
