    1. Perfect and easy

      I love the design of this tent; it's so simple; our 7 year old can set it up. Works beautifully. We've slept one adult and 3 kids in here just fine. Can't say enough good things. on Aug 4th 2018

    2. Great Tent

      This is my second sierra designs tent and it's constructed as well as back in the day. Durable and simple to put up, what more can you ask for. I got the summer moon 3 to replace a 20 year old one and I'll be coming back to get another four season off these folks since I like their tent designs so much. You won't go wrong here. on Jul 26th 2018

    3. Summer Moon 3 - Beautifully constructed tent

      The rain fly of my most favorite tent in the world, the Lookout, finally died. The tent went to music festivals, Cape May, Anza Borrego Desert, and the Yucatan. What a joy to awaken to the sunshine thru the yellow and blue panels.
      Why have just a tent? A work of art! I looked all over but that will have to wait until I design one some day. So we unpacked our new summer Moon 3 and enjoyed its design. Will have to wait to try it out in the weather. It seems well constructed and has strong, hearty nylon.
      As a former sail maker and artist in cloth I notice things like fewer zippers and thinner hooks and tabs than our old one, probably will reduce weight, hopefully will function as well. Thanks

    4. Lightweight, Inexpensive, & Great for Summers

      I've used the Summer Moon 3 camping in the Santa Cruz Mountains and backpacking in the Sierra. The tent is roomy, easy to assemble, and provides excellent views of the summer moon. The fly focuses on providing room in the vestibule vs. full double wall coverage around the tent - probably making it better for temperate nights than strong downpours.

      It an excellent lightweight tent - especially for its price point.

    5. Love this tent

      This is my first backpacking tent but I love it, it's lightweight, and easy to pack and set up. I like that there are 3 pouches in the tent for items and the overhead nightglow accessory. I got this for 2 of us, and it's perfect for us, not sure if it'll be too packed with 3 people. on Jul 11th 2017

    6. Great functional tent

      simple, functional tent - does well what it is meant to do. and love the color. Only used once so far, so can't say how it will last over time. pretty easy to put up, parts work well together. on Jul 8th 2017

    7. easy to set up

      Summer moon 3 is easy to set up, and roomy inside. the color is nice and welcoming. It is my
      'guest tent' I used to accommodate friends who came along on my recent Sequoia trip.

    8. Tent is awesome

      I like this tent a lot! It is the perfect 2 man tent or one man kingdom! It is pretty light considering size and price. Those factors make this the best tent out there. Yes you can spend 400$ more and get a pound and a half lighter but not without sacrificing space and quality. I love sierra designs and can't wait to try more products! Most likely taking this one on a backpacking trip to Yosemite soon! Can't wait! on May 14th 2017
