    1. Great Backpacking Tent!

      This tent is a huge upgrade from my first backpacking tent! It's light and super easy to set up / pack down. Overall, I think it's a great value! on Jul 23rd 2018

    2. Great Design. Great Build. Amazing value!

      I have been growing in my admiration of the products that Sierra Designs puts out. I've perceived that these are high quality goods, but that have noticed that they come at a price-point much more reasonable than many competitors. These days I have a Zissou bag and a new down jacket, but it was this this tent that was my big purchase for a recent trip and I am blown away by it!

      With 4 friends we spent six days in Lake Powell Recreation Area traveling up Stevens Canyon, down Fold Canyon, and then down 12 river miles of the Escalante River. From night 1 through the end, this tent was a winner.

      It is a reasonable weight while maintaining a good durable build from legitimate materials. Some friends had some tents that were lighter but the feel of them made them seem almost disposable. This was and is not so with my new Meteor 3.

      And the room inside this tent is incredible. I'd love to see tents rated as a ratio between interior cubic ft and cost, and also between interior cubic ft and weight. In both of these categories I've got to think that this tent would excel!

      My critiques are so minimal as to seem petty. In fact, I won't even mention them here. Thank you Sierra Designs for a great tent. For the life of my I can't understand why this design isn't getting more attention!
