Sierra Designs took its most advanced two-person tent and made it even lighter for all you ultralight backpackers. What makes the Flash 2 UL Tent superlight is its external frame and hybrid wall construction, which blends the benefits of both double-wall and single-wall constructions so you get a tent that's as light as a single-wall yet weather-protective like a double-wall. This innovative design also helps you set the tent up quickly in bad weather, and its steep walls and high ceiling give more space than conventional backpacking tents without any added weight. In fact, both doors are wide enough for you and your backpacking buddy to sit side by side and cook some food or enjoy the view when the weather's too dank for you to be outside. Even the gear closets have more room than you'd expect, with enough room for a pack and several pairs of shoes. To enhance your comfort, both closets are at opposite sides to the doors so you don't have to climb over all your gear to get in and out. Sierra designs built both the fly and the floor out of nylon ripstop for durability without the weight, and the body feature no-see-um mesh that provides an ample amount of airflow for the warmer nights. The thin DAC NSL poles are surprisingly strong for how light they are, and the 15-in integrated awning poles maximize the tent's space without adding the weight of another support pole.
