We introduce a new simple design of hollow-core microstructured fiber targeted to guide mid-infrared light at a wavelength of 2.94 μm. The fiber has a triangular-core supported via silica-glass webs enclosed by a large hollow capillary tube. The fiber specific dimensions are determined by the anti-resonant guiding mechanism. For a triangular-core with side length 100 μm, the fiber has a minimum transmission loss 0.08 ± 0.005 dB/m and dispersion 2.3 ps/km/nm at the operational wavelength of 2.94 μm.
