*Dimensions and weights are approximates. Externals are overall dimensions.


• 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.

  • Dual Skin Rainfly and Breathable Inner with FlashFrame™ Pitch System

Construction + Materials

New Season. New Standards. The new 2018 Slumit GOBI 3 (3 Berth) comes packed with design and performance tweaks. 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 3000mm Hydrostatic Head (over 2.5x the British Standard for fabric to be deemed water repellant). The outer rain-fly is now flame retardant to CPAI-84 standard* (new for 2018). 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.


IMPORTANT INSTALL NOTE. To ensure a successful pitch, we recommend a minimum operator height requirement of 5’4″ (163cm) with reasonable upper body strength. Users smaller than 5’4″ may find operating the GOBI FlashFrame™ challenging. Please 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. 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!


The GOBI 3 offers a self contained bug-free sleeping area (approx 200x200cm) 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 2018 additions:

  • Flame Retardant coating to CPAI-84 standard*
  • “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!
  • Redesigned two point guy system to offer additional support and stability to the tent.


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 and flame retardancy) will diminish over time and with usage.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 😊
