The MSR Tindheim 3 is a spacious, 3 season tunnel tent with a ‘Storm-pitch design’ for pitching in bad weather. 

MSR says: 

Strong, spacious three-season tunnel tent with great stability in bad weather.

Versatile, spacious and stable in bad weather, the strong and sturdy three-season Tindheim 3-person tent is ready for anything from backpacking trips in the mountains to weekend adventures closer to home.

The Inside: The spacious interior and vestibule provide plenty of room to hang out while waiting for the rain to pass. The included footprint extends into the vestibule to protect your gear from the wet ground. An interior laundry line lets you hang wet gear to dry. Rainfly vents are accessible from the inside so you can easily adjust to the conditions without leaving the tent. A double-layer zip door has both a mesh window panel for ventilation and a solid panel for weather protection and privacy.

The Outside: The rainfly’s storm-pitch construction ensures that the inner tent body stays dry during setup, even in wet conditions. Carefully chosen features amp up the Tindheim’s reliable stability in windy weather, like the strong two-hoop design and heavy-duty cord adjusters. A securable zipper holds the vestibule door securely closed against sudden wind gusts.

The Bottom Line: If you and your camping companions want comfort and trustworthy protection no matter the forecast, the three-season Tindheim provides the space and stability you need backed by MSR quality.

Our Verdict

The Tindheim 3 is a strong and sturdy tunnel tent for 3+ people. The height is maintained throughout the inner tent making it comfortable for extended periods. The vestibule is large with ample storage and has a side opening for easy access. The inner door is double layer, so is adaptable to changing environments. The tent comes with a footprint which covers the vestibule too, keeping contents off the ground. The storm pitch design allows for a quick pitch without the inner tent being exposed to the elements.
