rated 4.5 of 5 stars All in all, this is a true workhorse of a tent. It's suitable for all weather conditions, it's spacious, durable, and lightweight. A few personal preferences that they could have done differently, but overall I give it a 9/10...because nobody's perfect. Haha! Setup 9/10: Without instructions, it took a couple tries to figure out the poles the first time. Otherwise, setup was a breeze. The poles attach to the tent exclusively with grommets and clips, so there aren't any annoying sleeves to deal with. Full review

High Route 1 FL

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The High Route tent is a light tent that is designed to be stable in nasty weather and offers plenty of headroom. It's not intuitive to set up, but with practice it becomes straightforward. The Sierra Designs High Route 1 FL tent, a collaboration between long-distance hiker Andrew Skurka and Sierra Designs, has been highly anticipated over the last couple of years of development. I believe Sierra Designs is one of the most innovative mainstream outdoor companies there is, consistently coming up… Full review

Flash 2 FL

rated 4 of 5 stars First ever tent, pushed this design to its limits in harsh conditions in Scotland, Northern Canada, California desert and Tahoe in rain, snow, hail, and relentless desert sun. It stands up every time to the challenge. A couple of years ago, I was in love with a woman. I was young, like 24 or 25, but she meant the world to me then and has left her mark on me still, for sure. Things happened, we went on a "Break", but really, come on, everyone knows it's a break-up just spelled differently. Eventually… Full review

Long Sleeve Pack Polo

rated 3 of 5 stars This is a really well-designed shirt that could be great with tweaks to the fabric and sizing. I bought this shirt hoping that it would be my go-to shirt for backpacking. Unfortunately, the sizing is simply too small, and the fabric is not all that comfortable. Fit & Comfort:  Sierra Designs products run really small, I guess. The size chart says 34-37" in the chest for a small, and they really mean it. I normally wear a 37" or 38", and this shirt fits snugly around my chest. The really constricting… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Had my Lookout since 1996. Lots of use for backcountry paddling and backpacking. The Lookout has served me well in the 22 seasons I have owned it. A slightly crooked pole hasn't stopped this tent from performing. I gave it a bath a couple seasons ago and it was DIRTY!! but still holding strong from weather of all kinds. I have actually used this as a 4-season tent. From deep snow and cold to hot and humid. You don't want to stay in too long in the sun as it heats up quite quickly with the fly on. Full review
