The roomy Sierra Designs Lightning HT 4 tent lets you live the good life with elbow room to spare. Built for four, its unique geometry creates steep sidewalls and ample headroom. Two large, D-shape mesh doors and steep mesh walls provide great ventilation and views outside; each vestibule protects gear and provides protected entrances. Fast, easy-to-pitch hub/pole design helps reduce pitching errors. Light yet strong, DAC Featherlite(R) NSL poles are anodized without the use of harmful acids. Sleek Ball Cap(TM) assemblies secure ridge pole in place and allow it to pivot and rotate. Ultralight clips and color-coded main door and fly help make setting up simple and quick. DAC Jake's Feet(TM) at tent corners create a secure connection and allow easy attachment of poles, rainfly and footprint (sold separately); release them with a quick twist. SuperSeal Floor(TM) combines the benefits of catenary and bathtub floors; raised PVC-free side seams are taped for complete waterproofness. Hanging pockets help keep Lightning HT 4 organized; vestibule vent allows air to circulate in tent. Includes stuff sacks, stakes and guyline/tighteners. Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Closeout.
Bigger has never been so light! Building on our award winning Lightning design, the HT 4 is a must have for any family or group backpacking adventure. The 'M Hub' construction saves weight while not sacrificing stability. Large mesh walls keep nights cool and comfortable. In order to familiarize yourself with your new tent, Sierra Designs recommends you "test pitch" it before embarking on your wilderness adventure.

Usually we would be lying if we described a four-person tent as large AND light, but the Sierra Designs Lightning HT 4 Tent breaks the mold with a trail weight of under seven pounds. Spacious inside and well-ventilated by design, this three-season family tent sheds weight without losing any stability or weatherproofing. Two doors and vestibules provide ample room to store gear and help to ease the sometimes complicated matter of climbing in and out of a tent with four people inside.
The Sierra Designs Lightning HT 4 Tent is built to fit 4 with room to spare, this tent has a unique geometry that creates steep sidewalls and ample head-room via a unique ridge pole. Perfect for ultra-comfortable backpacking adventures.
