Sierra Designs Flashlight 2 UL
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The 3-season Flashlight 2 UL tent is a 2-person ultralight backpacking tent for those who believe that comfort and light weight shouldn't be mutually exclusive.
Sierra Designs took its lightest two-man tent and made it even lighter to appease the most minimalist backpackers out there. In the Flashlight 2 UL Tent, it 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 backpacking tents without any added weight. In fact, this tent has two eight-inch awnings over both drop doors to give you a dry space to cook comfortably in poor conditions, and the drop doors have large openings so the two of you can enjoy the view from the comfort of your sleeping bags. The gear closets to the sides of the tent offer plenty of space for both of your backpacks and shoes so you don't have to climb over each other's gear when you go to bed. 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 the construction of the tent enhances its airflow to keep you comfortable 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.
Proudly non-freestanding, and worthy of its legendary name, the 2014 Sierra Design Flashlight is the ultimate backpacking tent for those who believe that comfort and lightweight shouldn't be mutually exclusive.
