User Review: Sierra Designs Sirius 2
Ease of Setup: easy
Price Paid: $94
Took this tent on a 1.5 week summer backpacking trip in the Brooks Range.
Overall it's fine: not too heavy, fast and easy to setup, didn't let rain in, didn't let snow in.
- Due to incomplete fly coverage (see pics) and lots of mesh, it's an extremely breezy tent. For this reason, it is realistically more of a 1.5 season tent than a real 3 season tent. On the other hand, there's zero condensation and the tent felt great when it was warm and sunny.
- Also due to incomplete fly coverage, the vestibules are smaller than usual.
- Also due to incomplete fly coverage, the tent basically has wings that catch the wind. It's critical to have the tent facing in the right direction. I got lucky and had it the right way during a fairly serious arctic summer storm and it held up OK (fully guyed out + big rocks on all stakes) but the 40 MPH gusts would have destroyed the tent if the wind had switched direction.
- It's kind of short, I'm 6" and had to lie diagonally to keep the ends of my bag from getting wet against the tent walls.
