User Review: Sierra Designs Light Year 1
Design: Ultralight three-season
Ease of Setup: Simple and quick
Weight: Sub 2# or sub 3#, depending on configuration
This is an amazing tent for the price and weight. It's completed the AT twice, survived heavy snow and rainfalls and it's still kicking. It's been setup in pitch black with me being completely exhausted and still only took a few minutes. I've had it about 6 or so years and I'm considering buying the new model.
Other than a little trouble with the pole cords, it's been perfect. People do need to realize it is an ultralight tent, that means less material...smaller area, thinner fabric and pole wall thickness. Luxurious comfort and bomb-proof construction are trade-offs for less weight and good packability. I'm 6' and 185 and I think it's just as it should be.
Highly recommended for an experienced hiker looking for an extreme light-weight solo tent.
