    1. Wrestling match with a tent pole

      Pretty much the same tent as my flash 2 UL (except the pole sleeves) And with this in mind I did not try initial setup at home in the yard as I normally do with a brand new tent. Big mistake on my part. After 30 minutes of twisting, bending, wrenching, and scratching my head in disbelief, I finally got the two main poles hooked in the grommet. I'm hoping it was the initial stretching and it's not going to happen again. That said, the tent is amazing once it's set up. Great venting when you need it, and better cold weather coverage with the complete sidewall material. The headlight lantern is a sweet bonus. I hope it can withstand the elements, my flash 2 UL failed in high winds when the main pole snapped. Also missing a stake on this new tent, had to call and order another. on Aug 30th 2016

    2. More internal space without weight addition.

      I own nine tents for different use applications and this Sierra Designs Flash 2, standard for 2016, got my attention to purchase. Of tents at equivalent weight, this one is less confining internally and it has other features that just work better if in moderate camping conditions. Though set up involves two long pole sleeves, it wasn't as much hassle as expected, and the trade off to the resulting smart structure. Just study its photos to see its wider upper space, its awnings, the venting options, and view out versatility. I'd guess, the tent's only weak link would only be in high winds, but that's just my speculation not tested. The material quality and build of the tent I received had no issues, and comparative to a reasonable price. The main color as expected, a lime green, and its attached rain fly a light gray color, which might look otherwise in some of the web photos I've seen. I like the 4 foot internal width for me alone, and wouldn't want to share that space with a second person. However, they do have one size up on this tent, that mainly changes just the width, to either fit two comfortably or squeeze three in, by my standards. I like that they have a second tent size on this same design for if you want to share space in one tent. I don't like that Sierra Designs has the “Flash 2” name pertaining to four of their different tents, that only causes confusion on info and shopping web searches, and has some web sites naming them incorrectly and posting the wrong tent image. on Aug 9th 2016

    3. Flash 2

      I use the tent with my Golden Retriever. The denier is thick on the floor and the mesh is thicker than the FL model which I have found to be too thin for my use. The new fold up vestable exposes the sky for clear night viewing. The opportunities I see are in the pole sleeves and the difficulty in setting the poles in their designated slots. I had to use significant strength to get the poles set. I would like to see the same pole setup as the FL without a sleeve and easy connections. The color green looks great when out the woods. Lastly, the attached device which helps reflect light looks great. on Jun 13th 2016
