NEMO Equipment Dagger Ridge Porch 3 Tent Information

Season : 2021W A

Brand : Nemo

Code : N-811666033246

What is the Dagger Ridge Porch 3?

This 3 person tent should suit almost everyone. It's light enough for multi-day backpacking yet features more than enough space for extended trips or basecamp use. It's easy to set up, loaded with features and can be adapted to suit the conditions. This particular version has a massive porch for cooking, getting changed, storing kit or whatever else you need a bucket load of space for.

What is it made of?

Starting with the flysheet, NEMO use a lightweight 40D ripstop nylon with a silicone coating, providing full waterproof protection and a hydrostatic head rating of 3000mm. The inner uses a similar 40D ripstop nylon and no-see-um mesh — the tough, protective nylon is used lower down, where you'll encounter moisture, and the mesh is used higher up for greater breathability and ventilation. White privacy mesh is used for the side panels of the inner while black mesh is used for the top; this gives you extra privacy where you need it and extra visibility where you don't. Finally, the floor is made from a durable 70D ripstop nylon with a hydrostatic head of 5000mm.

Please note, despite the images showing black mesh, the tent does feature white mesh.


How is it constructed?

The Dagger features a completely freestanding design, meaning it can be pitched virtually anywhere and moved easily by simply detaching a few guylines. To pitch, simply attach one pole to the inner, one to the flysheet, attach the two together and peg out. Easy! With a bit of practice, this can be done in as little as 5 minutes. Once you've got the fly on, this creates one palatial porch which can be used to store kit, cook inside, as a space for your muddy pooch to sleep, etc, and one smaller porch for the other user to store their kit in or just to escape so you don't have to climb over each other.

What are its features?

Protected strut vents at the top of each zipper increase ventilation when it's raining heavily. If the weather is slightly more favourable and you need to increase ventilation even more, the doors can be opened up and pinned back completely.

Other useful features include a Divvy style stuffsack which allows you to split the tent into two parts for two users to carry, internal loops for securing lights, gear pockets for random bits and bobs, overhead light pockets for your lantern and a handy repair kit in case the worst should happen.

How to Care for Your Tent

We know that purchasing a tent is a big investment, that’s why we have such a wide range of options to suit different activities, weather conditions and people, allowing you to choose the perfect one for you. Taking care of your brand new tent can be the difference between heading out for an adventure in the mountains, or having to fork out for a hefty repair bill, or even worse, another replacement tent. Below are our best tips to care for your tent.

Footprint

Before even leaving the shop (or online basket) with your tent, consider a footprint. A footprint is a large water-resistant piece of material which sits underneath your tent to protect it from sharp rocks and wet ground; if this footprint gets damaged, it’s easy to replace and doesn’t cost a fortune; if your tent groundsheet gets damaged, you’ll have to spend at least twice the amount for a repair or replacement.

Don’t Abuse the Poles

The chances are your poles are made from individual aluminium sections connected by elastic; when you come to remove the poles from the tent, don’t pull them out. The best way to remove poles from their sleeve is to place the pole end against your hip and pull the fabric towards you. If you simply attempt to pull the pole out, they’ll disconnect inside, the elastic will stretch and then spring back, potentially trapping the fabric of your tent between the pole sections.

You might also be tempted to flick the poles out so that the elastic snaps them into place in a quickfire fashion. However, this is far from ideal, as if the poles don’t align when they meet, you can easily damage or weaken the end of the pole, leading to future failure which is usually on the wettest and windiest nights!

Collapse Poles From the Centre

When your poles are safely removed from the sleeve, collapse them from the centre to avoid stretching the elastic.

Stuff, Don’t Fold

You were probably told when you were in the Scouts or doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award that the best way to pack your tent away is to neatly fold it into a rectangle, the width of your storage bag, roll it around the poles and pegs and then put it all in the stuffsack. However, whilst very neat and tidy, this method of packing can create permanent creases in the fabric, weaken the waterproofing and eventually split the fabric of your tent. The best solution is to simply stuff the tent fabric into the storage bag, just like you would a sleeping bag, and pack the poles separately. Make sure to leave and end or corner at the top, so that you can easily peg it out if your next campsite is windy. The poles normally have their own stuffsack so they can be packed separately, strapped to the outside of your pack or stored inside, allowing the tent fabric to be compressed for efficient packing.

Store it Dry

Let’s assume you’ve been out with your tent and the weather has been a little on the damp side. You’ve packed your tent away when wet and now you’re back home in the warm and dry with a nice of cup of tea reflecting on your latest adventure. But what about your poor soggy tent? The worst thing you can do is to leave it packed away wet, mildew will grow and eventually rot the tent, rendering it useless. As soon as you’ve finished that cup of tea, wipe off any excess dirt and moisture with a towel, then hang the tent somewhere where it can fully air out; a nice warm spare room or a garage is perfect. Alternatively, when it stops raining, pitch the tent outside in the sunshine to dry off. Let it air for at least 24 hours and once you are sure that it is bone dry it can be packed away for storage. Note - don’t tumble dry or hang the tent over a radiator or other direct heat source.

Don’t Store in the Stuffsack

Like your sleeping bag, it’s best not to store your sleeping bag in its stuffsack unless it has to be compressed for an activity. Leave it in a large duffel bag or supermarket ‘bag for life’ in a cool, well ventilated area so it can breathe.

Avoid Tree Sap

If you’ve ever had sap on your hands, you’ll know how horrible and sticky the stuff is; it’s even harder to remove from your tent flysheet. Pitch away from trees if possible.

Don’t Leave in the Sun

The majority of tents we stock are made from nylon. Nylon is incredibly tough, lightweight and easy to care for, however it will naturally degrade if left out in harsh sunlight for extended periods of time. Try to pitch your tent in the shade or strike the tent (pack it away) during the day. Polyester tents don’t suffer from this quite as badly, but it’s still a good habit to get into.

Leave Sharp Objects Outside

Boots, cooking equipment and other sharp/abrasive objects can all be stored in the vestibule, where there is less chance of it ripping a hole in your fly or groundsheet. You may not want to pop your pet in there, but at least carry a small blanket to avoid their claws damaging your groundsheet.
