User Review: Sierra Designs Sirius 3
Ease of Setup: Rediculously easy
Weight: 5'ish pounds including stakes(which we replaced)
Price Paid: $150
My wife and I bought this tent last year for a trip to the sequoias/high sierras. My wife, me and our aussie cattle dog fit comfortably inside. We were both very happy with how fast it was to set up and tear down. On average, it takes us half the time as everyone else we go camping/backpacking with to set up camp.
Since that trip, we have taken it to the desert several times, the high Sierras twice, the beach in northern California in 40-60mph winds twice, and in every condition we have exposed it to so far, it's been a damn fine tent.
So far, we've logged over ten trips in this tent with no signs of wear. I'd highly recommend it for the price.
The only beef I have with the tent, and on balance, I generally have this problem with any tent is the stakes that it shipped with are flimsy. If you camp often, you'll be replacing these. Everything else seems to be quality to me.
