Kinda funny when a discount seller of the tent has a better handle on the tent then the manufacture/designer.

Where does one buy a "season meter"? Do they work different if your above or below the equator?


From:  http://www.blackdiamondequipment.com/en-us/shop/mountain/shelters/firstlight-tent/

"A compact two-person, four-season tent built for weight-conscious climbers, the Black Diamond Firstlight is based on the I-Tent’s expedition-specific design with steep walls and a simple floor shape to optimize living space and increase headroom."

Brings to mind the quote from Dire Straits Album "Love over Gold" song: Industrial Disease:  “Two men say they’re Jesus. One of them must be wrong.”

Well speak freely!  So why do you feel the tent isn't a four season tent?
