User Review: Sierra Designs Omega
Design: strong pyramidal kinda thing
Ease of Setup: too easy- put the poles in the corners and clip em
Weight: 5.5# (Omega light)
Price Paid: $2 sumpthin'
I had the Omega light- which is the same but made with silnylon so it only weighs about 5.5#. I used mine for one trip and threw that puppy on craigslist. I wanted to get one tent to do it all - and this one is damn close. I'm 6', 200# and my girl is 5'1" 90# and we were cozy in there. We fit and had some gear in it but I felt like we were in a kids' fort or something. Low ceiling, and tight walls. I could only sit fully up near the door. I was in a bad rain in NoCal and when we would get out - we would unzip the fly and water would drip in the door because of the "underbite" made between the fly and the floor. Sierra Designs is great and setup and stuff couldn't be easier. When it was sealed up we stayed totally dry and unaffected by coastal winds. Just the underbite problem and the smallish size (imho) killed it for me. (Sooo close!)- back to two tents.
