Sierra Designs Camp & Hike Flash 3 FL Tent - 3 Person 3 Season 40150515. Featuring awning coverage over large drop doors and an integrated retractable rain fly the Flash keeps you connected to the outdoors like no other tent can.


The ultralight, 3-season Sierra Designs Flash 3 UL Tent offers an awning and drop doors for protection from the elements, and open-air living space for cooking and outdoor views in poor weather.


The Sierra Designs Flash 3 UL Tent keeps the same space and luxury as its heavier version, but it's much lighter to suit the needs of ultralight backpackers. What makes this tent superlight is its 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. The gear closets also have plenty of space for multiple backpacks and several pairs of shoes, and Sierra Designs set places each closet perpendicular 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 features no-see-um mesh walls that provide 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. This superlight tent will serve you with comfort, luxury, and a good night's sleep whether you're trekking across a great distance or simply camping in your backyard. It fits three people snugly or gives elbow room when it's just you and another backpacking buddy.


The fusion of luxury and lightweight come together perfectly. The Flash tents defy all previous beliefs about how light a full-size, full-featured shelter can be. Pitching Instructions Tent User Manual Guyline Line-Lok(R) Cleat Instructions
