User Review: Sierra Designs Light Year CD
Design: solo double-wall non-freestanding
Ease of Setup: easy
Weight: 2 lbs 15 oz
Price Paid: $150
Used the tent on a 7-day Grand Canyon trek. I actually only erected it three times (should have four times due to unanticipated November storm on the Tonto...oh well) as I sleep out unless raining. I already owned a Clip Flashlight CD (3 lbs. 15 oz.), but didn't want to carry such a "heavy" tent along with seven days' rations and usually large amts. of water.
Design is quite long for a solo tent and can comfortably sleep someone well over 6 ft tall. General impression of "roominess" is not much less than the "two-man" Clip Flashlight (maybe a little snugger headroom). Dealt with weather encountered quite well (rain and wind).
Currently (Nov. 2004) on sale via many merchants in low 100 range. Tent provides a lot of room and protection for the weight. Vestibule is small, but large enough for boots and pack (you'll have to maneuver around them for entrance and exit though). Door is on the head end and a trifle small. Minor contortionist effort required for a large individual to get in and out (just crawl in on your knees). Tent is sturdy.
