It's surprising how comfortable the Sierra Designs Flashlight 1 Tent is considering how light it is. The designers at Sierra Designs blended single-wall and double-wall constructions--which they call hybrid construction--in order to give you a tent that's as light as a single-wall tent but still weather-protective like a double-wall tent. This unique design helps you set this tent up quickly in bad weather, and it gives this tent more space than conventional solo tents without any added weight. In fact, this tent has an eight-inch awning that gives you a dry space to cook comfortably in poor conditions, and the drop door has a large opening so you can enjoy the view from the comfort of your own sleeping bag. The gear closets store your gear on the sides of the tent (away from the door) so you don't have to climb over your shoes and pack each time you get in and out. Sierra Designs built the floor out of ripstop for durability, the fly out of polyester taffeta to keep it light, and the body out of no-see-um mesh for ventilation. Not only do the walls provide a lot of ventilation, but a tunnel between the end of the tent (where your feet are) and the door maximizes airflow in order to keep you cool while you sleep on a warm summer's night. This non-freestanding tent comes with a superlight DAC Pressfit pole and two vertical poles that you can replace with your trekking poles if you want to shave six ounces off your load.
The 3-season Sierra Designs Flashlight 1 tent is a solo backpacking tent for outdoor adventurers who believe that comfort and simplicity shouldn't be mutually exclusive.
Proudly non-freestanding, and worthy of its legendary name the Sierra Designs Flashlight 1 Tent is the ultimate backpacking tent for those who believe that comfort and lightweight should go hand in hand.
