Tensegrity represents an aggressive reimagining of non-freestanding tent design. It is the first, and only tent on the market that gets wider toward it's peak enabling lighter builds that offer more living space than any comparable tent. The Tensegrity is the ultimate choice for serious backpackers.

    1. Awesome

      Awesome backpacking tent and with the use of poles this tent is solid and cuts weight! I love Sierra designs tents and they work well. Also the roomiest 1 person tent I have ever been in can easily sleep 2 if you like that other person. Works well in high wind conditions and is very ventilated when needed. Will update when I test in the rain to see how it holds up. on May 31st 2017

    2. Customer Review

      Generally a good tent. But it does have condensation problems on the roof. Probably should have been double walled or breathable material. on Nov 13th 2015
