The fusion of luxury and lightweight come together perfectly in the Sierra Designs Flash 3 Tent - 3 Person, 3 Season. The Flash tents defy all previous beliefs about how light a full-size, full-featured shelter can be.
If you're looking for a little more elbow room than a two-person tent for your car camping or backpacking adventures, then look no further than the Sierra Designs Flash 3 Tent. This tent snugly fits three people or gives a luxurious amount of space for two. Its unique hybrid-wall construction blends the benefits of both double-wall and single-wall constructions so you get a tent that's light like a single-wall but still 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 room for multiple backpacks and several pairs of shoes, and Sierra Designs placed 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 this tent's fly out of polyester taffeta to keep it superlight, the body out of mesh for ventilation, and the floor out of nylon taffeta for durability. There are three DAC Pressfit poles that are incredibly light and surprisingly strong, and the 15-in integrated awning poles maximize the tent's space without adding the weight of another support pole. You'll be completely content with this tent if you're camping in a warm desert during the early weeks of fall and finishing the season with a backpacking adventure across the Tetons.
