Sierra Designs Nomad 4.2
Tente Exeptionnelle ni trop grosse, ni trop petite, superbe confort, hyper solide, qui se monte ultra-rapide (3 poles ultra-robustes de même longueur) pour la grosseur, très polyvalente.
- Robustesse, Rigidité, Rapidité, Exellente ventilation, portes très larges.
- Perfectible: Légèrement plus profond (84"- 86" au lieu de 79"), Plus d'espace tête-épaules dans le haut du vestibule avant, pointe du vestibule arrière légèrement plus profond, panneaux latéraux de ventilation légèrement plus haut. Elle serait parfaite!
- Porte avant doublé tissus et moustiquaire.
C'est probablement une des plus Robuste et Rapide Tente 4 places/3 Saisons peut-être comparable aux modèles de tentes 4 saisons d'expédition les plus féroces, 3 pôles ultra forts exactement de mêmes longueurs (Une fois monter et bien tendue, je crois qu'elle supporterait une personne coucher uniformément sur la structure!), montage rapide, 2 grandes portes pratiques 360, exellente ventilation et même si un peu serrer pour coucher 4 personnes (Elle a beaucoup d'espace, forme très spacieuse pour bouger à l'intérieur), elle occupe peu d'espaces sur les terrains restreints pour les 58 pieds carrés offerts; Les murs du double-toit chaque côté se Clip pour plus d'aération, la porte avant du double-toît se soulève pour faire un auvent ou abri (Avec 2 pôles même hauteur). J'ai eu près de 10 modèles de Sierra Designs et plus d'autres grandes marques et modèles de tentes. C'est une de mes préférée Top niveau 5 étoiles; Bravo Sierra!
This is probably one of the most robust and Fast Tent 4 places / 3 Seasons may be comparable to the most ferocious shipments models, 3-pin super strong, quick installation, exellent ventilation and although a little squeeze to sleep 4 people (it has plenty of space, spacious shape to move inside), it takes up little space on the limited land for 58 square feet available, the walls of the double roof clip each side for ventilation, the front door of the double roof rises to a canopy or shelter (with 2 poles same height). I had about 10 models of Sierra Designs and other brands and models. This is one of my favorite Top level Sierra Congratulations!

This tent is no longer made by Sierra Designs. I purchased this tent used.
Pros: I am really impressed with this tent and its quality. Sierra Designs knows how to make quality tents and pack them with useful features. I have not seam sealed mine and there is apparently no reason to do so! I have been in some pretty hard rain and it holds up well. It has a nice clothesline and plenty of large side wall pockets inside the tent.
I consider it a wonderful base camp tent. It is a little bit of a low profile to be considered a "family tent". For a one or two person plus lots of gear tent, it is very nice!
The odd shape is a blessing and a curse at the same time. The odd shape allows for plenty of corners to tuck gear into but also this odd shape makes setting up slightly frustrating with poles and where they go. You have to look at the instructions every time you set this tent up and it can be a little tough on you to get the tent poles lined up properly in the tent corners.
Cons: I would consider this a no more than 3 person tent. Because of its odd shape (again a blessing and a curse) I see a very cramped quarters with 4 people.
Overall, if you find this tent in a used condition somewhere, it is a fantastic base camp tent. For some it would work well even as a car camping tent, but its low profile makes it more of a backcountry style tent. I use mine for a wilderness base camp tent while kayaking/camping on lakes.
Design: Three-season freestanding
Ease of Setup: Easy
Price Paid: $220
My husband and I have used this tent six to seven times for car camping. Setup is quick and easy. It will fit two smaller camp cots (at a cost of reduced head room), or two large camp mats, or one queen size inflatable mattress. We use it in Northwest Montana and often in Glacier Park.
Ventilation is good, weather protection is excellent. It doesn't require as much space as some base camping tents we've used, and its lower profile is better suited to occasional high winds in the St. Mary's area in Glacier Park. We've had another (very expensive) higher profile tent collapse under high winds, causing permanently bent tent poles. We've been happy with this tent for car camping.
