OK, it looked great on paper and weight was perfect. I took it once into the highlands and spend a night in it in windy conditions. In the morning winds picked up and the tent collapsed. It was blowing hard from behind (ALL pegs and guy ropes were secured) and the structure was pushed forward until the aluminium poles gave way and collapsed on top of my head. It sounds funny (yes, it is!) but I am glad it was overninght trip only to test the tent in wind and rain. IT IS NOT A 4-SEASON TENT! The wind was strong but I could stand it comfortably. would NOT recommend it for long trips in the mountains.:)

Best tent I ever owned. I turned in my regular Omega so I could backpack with it. I live in Oregon and use it for everything. I would not use this for mountaineering as it is not as heavy-duty for that type of application.
I wish Sierra made a 1-man version of a 3/4 season convertible.

Weighing less than 6 pounds, this light two-person convertible tent is ideal for three- or four-season backpacking. Converts to 3-season with large removable ceiling panel that reveals no-see-um mesh, and removable pole sections to be left at home in mild weather. Removable stash door can also be left at home to save weight and space; it can also be stashed in an internal mesh pocket. DAC Featherlite® SL poles are stronger and weigh less due to extruded construction and the elimination of insert connections. Steep sidewalls shed snow and rain, making this tent a reliable choice for mountaineering and four-season backpacking. Sewn-in floor stays taut to provide maximum usable space; heavy-duty polyurethane coating and factory-taped main seam keep out water. Integral vestibule features a clear vinyl window with taped seams and provides gear storage space protected from the elements. New high-tenacity nylon ripstop rainfly features a lightweight silicone coating inside and polyurethane coating outside. Clip-Locs™ at intersecting pole sections increase structural strength by 60% without losing flexibility or adding weight. Huge mesh ceiling and door panels provide excellent ventilation and allow stargazing in clear weather. Freestanding design lets you move tent to optimal position before staking it down. Exclusive Inter-Locs attach rainfly guy points to tent canopy, creating an integrated guy system that increases the tent's strength. Non-wicking stake loops and fly attachments eliminate the possibility of wicking water into tent. Reflective guy-out loops enhance low-light visibility; noiseless zipper pulls eliminate that annoying jingle when it's windy. Interior mesh pockets are waterproof against the sidewalls; your stuff stays dry and visible. Treated with Tent Guard with Ultra-Fresh to help prevent the growth of odor-causing fungus and mildew to extend tent's life; a SD exclusive! Includes stuff sacks, stakes, guylines and seam sealer. Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Closeout.
