    1. Just the thing...

      We absolutely love this tent, we love the easy of set up and pack-ability. When we are out on long back country hikes last thing we like to do is fuss over complicated pole set ups. This tent is a winner plus its durable for our pup to come along. Although it has one drawback, its can not handle very high wind and I'm talking 50-60 mph in Red Rock Canyon. Thinking there would have been no way to set that sucker up to withstand that amount of wind. We walked away with manual damage two guy lines ripped out. We are looking forward to getting out tent back from repair and using her again but without the wind.

      Thanks Sierra Designs

    2. Great Ultra-light Tent

      Background: I've had this for 6 months, I live in hawaii, It rains a lot here, I'm gnarly and hike when is pouring and I beat the crap out of my stuff. So if it will out last mean you should be fine.

      - I feel like I have to be careful with it, but mind you this is an ultralight (pretty much). I have been more careful than normal and I've only ripped one of the inner loops for a close line (it doesn't really matter, I was yanking on it)
      - Only single layer by the head, which in went conditions (Hawaii) water my seep through. Personally I've never had the issue, even though we hike and camped in pouring rain. But I do scoot down away from head just to be save.
      - Wish it had a little be more over hang over feet
      - NOT FREE STANDING (didn't realize that when I was getting it)

      Fast set up
      Enough room for you and friend to sleep with bag (65L Fjallraven Abikso) as pillow
      Fits two comfortably ( You could squeeze 3 if needed, you'd be bumping each other though)
      Good airflow
      Small pack Size

      Thing to Improve on:
      Add a pre-attached stake tie centered above heads.
      Create a rain fly over the heads to keep water out. Like a double layer, a screen underneath and a rain fly above. Also would keep it cooler in hot sun.
      Maybe a heavier durable option so the floor was more durable.
