User Review: Sierra Designs Electron
Design: Three season freestanding dome tent
Ease of Setup: Set up is a breeze, takes about 2 minutes
Weight: ~5 lbs
Price Paid: $189
Bought the original version of this tent on closeout from Campmor in 2008 and have really loved it. It was a steal at $189 because it came with the footprint, gear attic, and coffee slings (although I've never used the slings). It's been through the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne and all over the Southeast.
Great free-standing design with two side entry doors, large vestibules, and full mesh upper is perfect on rain-free nights for good views from the tent. The set up is incredibly easy since all the pole connections are clips (no sleeves to deal with).
Possibly the only downside is that it has no ventilation toward the top of the rainfly, but the large vestibules allow for plenty of airflow so it's not a problem. I've spent several nights in it with a buddy of mine that's 6'3" and tent never felt cramped.
