User Review: Sierra Designs Flash Magic
Design: 3.5 season, non-free-standing, single wall
Ease of Setup: Easy!
Price Paid: $200
I bought this tent way, way back in 1990. I needed a super-light tent for mountaineering uses. This bugger weighs in at just under 3 pounds, and packs down to a small roll. I can set it up in less than a minute on flat ground. Sleeping with two people is tight--pretty much people-only, and they'd better be in love.
It's a great tent for drier conditions and light snow or heavy wind. It's lousy for wet warm conditions. I have about 200 nights in mine, and it's still running strong. It survived an overnight 20" snowfall just fine.
Sierra Designs had the best tent design in the world with this one, and it's a shame they stopped making it so soon.
