Notes:
• Additional Poles are non FlashFrame poles. IE. Poles to create the vestibule / porch area. The FlashFrame does the rest. Additional Poles are supplied.
• Berth refers to maximum number of people to sleep within the tent. The maximum capacity may be cosy subject to the size and frame of the camper(s) and gear stowed.
• CPAI-84 Fire Retardant fabric does not mean the tent is fireproof. Fabric will still burn. Take caution when camping, not to use heat or flammable sources in or around your tent.
• Air Vents help increase air flow into the tent and sleeping area. Keeping the air vents open will help reduce condensation. Closing the vents will help trap some of the warmer moist air but will increase condensation.
• UV+ fabric protection should not be a substitute for applying suitable skin protection. The fabric coating will degrade over time and exposure to the elements.

Construction + Materials

New season. New standards. Back and boosted! The All-New 2019 Slumit GOBI 3 (3 Berth) comes packed with design and performance upgrades. Scroll down for the full list of new features..

 

**Please Note. Images supplied are concept images. Actual images are expected in due course. The concept images are a close representation of the new design, but some design features may differ to that shown.**

 

The GOBI 3 is a high spec two layer tent with a waterproof and flame retardant (to CPAI-84) outer rainfly and breathable inner sleeping area. The rain-fly is waterproofed to a high 4000mm Hydrostatic Head (new for 2019) – over 2.5x the British Standard for fabric to be deemed water repellant. The outer rain-fly is flame retardant to CPAI-84 standard*, and now UV+50 coated (new for 2019) to help protect from harmful UV rays. This 3 season camping tent can be pitched (and packed) faster than an equivalent pole and sleeve tent thanks to the innovative all-in-one FlashFrame™ Pitch and Pack System. Up in a flash!

 

IMPORTANT INSTALL NOTE. To ensure a successful pitch, we recommend a minimum operator height requirement of 5’4″ (163cm) with good upper body strength. Otherwise users may find operating the GOBI FlashFrame™ challenging. Please contact us for advice, or consider the CUB 2 FlashFrame™ tent as an alternative.

 

The FlashFrame™ is an exoskeleton frame system which enables the user to quickly pitch the inner and outer layers together, at the same time, in seconds. No springs, no leaky gasses, just ingenious design! So no more pitching the inner tent first and then the outer, which can be time consuming and especially problematic during wet conditions. The FlashFrame™ solves this problem!

 

*NB. The GOBI 3 requires one fiber pole (supplied) to be threaded through the porch sleeve – the FlashFrame™ does all the rest! We’ve redesigned the vestibule porch pole sleeve in 2019 to make pitching and packing even quicker and easier!

 

The GOBI 3 offers a self contained bug-free sleeping area (approx 200 x 200-230cm) suitable for 2-3 persons. A separate roomy porch area suitable for campers needing sheltered storage for muddy boots and additional gear. The porch area is complete with two PVC Windows with fully zippable internal privacy screens – perfect for illuminating the inside of your tent especially on a rainy day! The internal Loft Storage Net and Side Storage Pockets (max load 2kg) are ideal for storing mobile phones, keys or other light weight accessories for easy access.

 

NEW and noted 2019 additions:

  • UV+50 coating
  • 4000mm Hydrostatic Head (HH)
  • Re-designed porch pole sleeve to make pitching and packing even quicker and easier
  • Re-engineered inner door and mesh panel with stuff pocket
  • Re-designed sleeping area – tapered footprint to offer 12″ (30cm) deeper internal floor space – see graphic
  • Zippable rear wall electric cable access point to internal tent
  • “No-See-Um” mesh upgrade. Stonger and finer mesh holes than standard mesh, means even the tiniest of blood thirsty midgies (AKA “no-see-ums”) will struggle to get in. Ideal for areas with serious midge issues!
  • Re-designed two point guy system to offer additional support and stability to the tent.
  • FlashPack™ Roll-Top Quick Stuff Carry Case

 

Recommended accessories (subject to availability):

 

FOOTPRINT GROUNDSHEET PROTECTOR – Increase the life of your tent and protect the underside of your integrated groundsheet from abrasion and general wear and tear by using a compatible FootPrint GroundProtector. Using a FootPrint Ground Protector helps increase ground insulation too. The FootPrint GroundProtector is tailored 10cm smaller than the integrated groundsheet to stop rain water channelling between the two layers.

 

CANOPY POLE SET – Transform your outer front door into a canopy awning using the CANOPY POLE SET. Should be used on a still and ideally a dry day. Comes complete with foldable powder coated steel poles, guy ropes and pegs.

 

EXTRA GUY KIT – Reinforce your GOBI tent using the Extra Guy Kit. Complete with 4 velcro banded guy ropes and heavy duty ground stakes. Fasten the velcro banded webbing to your FlashFrame system to offer increased stability and protection during windier conditions. Highly recommended if you are travelling away, or as a precaution should you experience unexpected inclement and breezier weather conditions. Ensure your tent is fully guyed out even on a still day.

 

SAFETY NOTICE: Camping in windy conditions is not recommended and should be avoided for safety reasons. Check the recommended usage guidelines in the instructions. Always check wind and gust strength forecasts prior to your excursion. Winds may appear calm but gust strength may be very high. Wind and gusts can be extremely destructive and can damage temporary shelters such as tents and awnings not covered under warranty.

 

*FIRE SAFETY NOTICE: A flame retardant fabric does not certify that the fabric or tent is fire proof. Fabric will still burn if exposed to a naked flame. Flame retardant fabrics will only reduce the rate in which fabric will ignite and burn. Great care should always be taken when camping. Keep heat sources away from the tent. In the event of a fire, evacuate the tent immediately. Specialist coatings (waterproofing, flame retardancy and UV+) will diminish over time and with usage.

    What a fantastic tent – the flashframe is so easy to use and the tent folds away so easily too .. I have a few envious friends who will be buying too. Well done Slumit!

  2. Andrew ‘Windy’ Miller (verified owner)

    What a fab tent. I bought a Gobi after a couple of guys (no pun) after seeing their Gobi’s. I’ve always used a wee Vango Banshee or my really old Terra Nova but needed more space for an airbed as thermarest wasn’t comfy for a multi day camp.

    Love the flashframe, even on first attempt it was a doddle. A well made and functional tent with nice touches, I don’t know what the wee zip is bottom left though.

    A real improvement is the new porch threading much better than on the older models I’ve seen.

    I’ll be sure to recommend to anyone looking for a quality tent with such ease of pitching.

    Windy.

    Slumit’s Response: Thank you Windy for taking the time to leave a review, and we’re so pleased that you like the new features on the latest 2019 model. The small zip you reference at the back of the sleeping area is the electricity access point – so that you can run a cable into the tent. Another new feature. Thanks again for your review. Have a wonderful Easter Holiday 🙂

    Gobi 3 tent, amazing tent, and so are there staff, owned Gobi 3 for 4.5 years now, been everywhere on the back of my motorcycle to rallies and touring in all weathers, never got wet inside even with the mesh panels it stayed warm even when camping in the snow. Big plus for touring, really fast put up time with plenty of space inside for 2 grown ups and all the touring gear. Really quick to drop too, once you get the knack you can even fold it smaller than the storage bag. The one feature which was very useful was the center hook for a hanging light. But due to needing a replacement part which is no longer available as my tent is old, Slumit have sorted me out with another Gobi 3, Well worth its money, best tent ive used to date. Thanks Slumit.

    Slumit’s Response: Thank you Peter for your review, and we hope you receive many years of use from your replacement graded GOBI. Your new order should be with you soon. 🙂

    Donzie Robson. This is my 2nd Slumit Gobi, the 1st being the Gobi 3 [2014 model] and now the 2019 Gobi 3. Again, top quality standard. Of all the upgraded tweaks, to me the best has to be the channel for the “vestibule” pole as I call it. I was almost thinking of going for the Cub as getting the pole in and out of the long material sleeve was putting me off. Thankfully, it works out that there are only 2 small sleeves to guide the pole through and 4 clips. This takes a lot of strain off the sleeves and it can be done very quickly. Great tent.

    Slumit’s Response: Thank’s Donzie for your review and glad you like the 2019 GOBI updates 🙂 For those reading this and interested in the redesigned vestibule sleeve; we tested various new pole sleeve designs using several prototypes. Among the 15 product testers, 13 found the two short pole sleeves design above the door (to replace one long sleeve like on earlier GOBI models), offered a speedier pitch and pack. The two shorter sleeves help position and hold the vestibule (porch) pole while the four pole clips are attached, all whilst placing less stress on the vestibule pole – this when compared to the other prototype designs. Other prototype designs we tested included: one medium length sleeve and clips, one short sleeve and clips, or no sleeve and all clips. The two short sleeve and clips came up trumps, so glad you like too. Thanks again for your review and support Donzie. It’s greatly appreciated.👍

    During my motorcycle trip, through the Four Corners states of the USA, the Gobi 3 was the best tent.
    Many people were amazed how fast it is set up.
    The Gobi 3 is very comfortable and offers plenty of space, also in the entrance area is enough space for luggage – shoes, etc.
    I even made my food warm and coffee in the sheltered entrance area.
    I camped on stony and sandy ground and it did not take any damage, it is very sturdy!
    Probably the most beautiful campground, “The Fiew” in Monument Valley, the brown color adapted perfectly to the landscape.
    I am very happy that I have chosen this tent.

    Used in the North, the South of Europe, excellent product for biker and other camper. Possibility of using it for a few hours of rest without planting sardines, if no wind. Suggestion maybe modify the door arch so that it does not have to go through the fabric guide.

  8. Joseph Cassidy

    Excellent tent, lightweight and very easily set up. would strongly recommend for motorcycle touring.

  9. Toomas Rand

    Gooood tent and keeps 19 h rain away!

  10. Adam

    This tent is fantastic! I recently used it for a weekend in France for Le Mans 24 which was made a lot more enjoyable by having a tent that was up to the job. It pitches in no time and is packed away just as quickly, it also fits back in the bag easily (unlike others). No bugs at all managed to make their way into the sleeping area either. I’d definitely recommend this tent to anybody looking for a reliable tent that’s easy to use.

  11. Donzie Robson

    Got my Gobi 4 years ago, and it’s still going strong. So easy, it erects in minutes which is the envy of my rally mates. So much so that 3 guys have now got the Gobi and another guy opted for the Cub. By the end of this rally season my Gobi may be on its limit, but I will be back onto Slumit for another. Great tent for the price

  12. Mrs N Wheatley

    This company is brilliant, they make excellent products and their service really is second to none. Very friendly and helpful people. This is our second Gobi tent, with our first tent purchased about 7 years ago. We couldn’t resist the windows on this model (our old model was windowless) and this really does make a big difference. A number of times it has rained and the windows make the experience of sitting inside the tent far more enjoyable. There are plenty of upgrades from our older tent and all are very positive changes. The colour is slightly different too from my old gobi which offers a very pleasant light ambience when relaxing inside. My husband and I camp and tour regularly and we have recently returned from a trip around Europe. Our tent performed wonderfully and can vouch for the waterproofness. We had 3 days of rain, and we were kept dry. Very easy to pitch and put away. Packing does take a little getting used to but once you get the knack which doesn’t take long, getting back in the bag is no problem. Thank you Slumit, Mrs N Wheatley 😊
