    1. Nice three season tent

      Set up is easy. Seems to be of good quality. I’ve only used it once. A down side is the single door that, if you’re on the side away from the door, you have to climb over your tent-mate to exit. on Aug 13th 2018

    2. Fabulous

      Sierra Design stands by their products. on Jul 10th 2018

    3. Highly recommended

      I received this tent on June 22 and took it out for a test trip in Grand Teton National Park on June 29th. On the day is started my quick overnight trip it was a warm summer day down in the valley when I got to my destination there was snow on the ground and it was starting to snow. I set up the tent and quickly made dinner. I woke up in the morning with a small dusting of snow on the tent. The number of things that impressed me were the following:
      1. Almost no condensation in the tent
      2. The light pocket in the tent to be able to have a light in the tent via your headlight.
      3. The simplicity and speed in which you can set up the tent
      4. Being as this is rated a 3 season tent it handled the light winter conditions with no problems.

      Once again Sierra Designs knocked it out of the park. Oh and yes I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tent. Onc again thanks again. Mike M.

    4. Great tent for the money.

      This was a great tent first of all. The tent itself is amazing, simple to set up.

      Also, it was compact and amazingly light for the price. My only critique is the fly could be a bit more intuitive and easy to attach. Definitely would recommend, as still for the price this is a fantastic tent.

    5. a fine tent

      After many years using my SD gimmeshelter I decided I was ready to add a little weight in trade for a lot more room (comfort). After a few nights out I am super happy with my choice. NOTE I am using this tent as a one man tent. I am 6'2 and can fit just fine with my pack inside.
      Super easy freestanding setup. Did well in the wind when staked out. Love the metal holders for the pole tips, so much better than grommets. ventilation is good. Rained hard two nights ago and no problems. I think I will be able to partially open the fly when it is hot and rainy without letting rain in. Some water does run in when opening the fly after rain shower but not too bad. Had no condensation issues at all. Now I am just hoping this tent lasts as long as my last SD tent.

    6. After Tons of Research, Best Tent for the Money

      Before going on a four day backpacking trip to Los Padres National Forest, I wanted to get a lightweight tent that could accommodate me and my buddy, last me for a few years at least, and not burn a huge hole in my pocket. I was looking around at tons of tents in the 300+ dollar range, all around 5lbs, and decided it may be best to look in the secondhand market. A craigslist add led me to look at sierra designs tents (I think it was a Flashlight UL 2), but after more research I learned there were some moisture buildup issues with that particular model. I checked out the Sierra Designs website and learned about the new Summer Moon 2, and was stoked to see how light it was. After a week of more careful deliberation, I decided it was the best bang for my buck, and purchased it.

      I didn't get a shipping confirmation the next day, so I called and asked how long it would take to arrive (They were changing warehouses at the time so shipping times may have been longer). A really nice young woman immediately picked up the phone and knew the answer to my question. Sierra Designs if you're reading this, A+ for your customer support.

      The tent came a few days later, and I opened it up and set it up immediately in my living room. The tent poles are made of light, sturdy aluminum, and click together with a (very satisfying) snap. the tent body is very light but seemingly tough, and the mesh is usual high quality mesh. Everything on the tent feels well designed and engineered, and the setup takes about two minutes in the field (add anther two to setup the rain-fly).

      After the trip, I can say this tent lived up to my highest expectations and more. It fit my buddy and I snugly, we're both about 6'3 and 210lbs, which more than surprised me. When alone in the tent there was more than enough room for myself, and some of my gear (Maybe not a whole pack though). The second and third night, with the rain-fly up, there was no moisture buildup anywhere and it got down to about 40 that morning (with the vents properly staked out). Also, the night glow feature is very handy.

      The only thing I could complain about is the headroom due to the way the tent is structured, but I understood that could be an issue when I purchased it. I can comfortably sit in the center of the tent, but it gets a little low near the sides. Not a fatal flaw. It would also be rad if it came with a ground tarp!

      In conclusion, I'm very happy with this purchase, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality, lightweight, and affordable tent.
