Brand: Sierra Designs
Located in: Essential Equipment, Tents
One of the most copied tents in Sierra Designs history, the Meteor Light is the only shelter ever to win the Backpacker "Editors' Choice Gold" award, way back in 2001. A mainstay in Sierra Designs line for two decades, the editors at Backpacker recognized its utilitarian function and design. Sierra Designs nailed the details in its tents, which account for the buzz about'em. For example, the pole sleeves start high on the Meteor Light, meaning you can stake out the tent first, then slot the poles. The next time you build camp in a windstorm you'll be thankful we thought ahead. The Meteor Light's also great for tall customers, with a peak height of 43 inches and a sturdy, three-pole design. Efficient, economical, and comfortable, the Meteor Light is still a standard-bearer for us.

Comments about Sierra Designs Sierra Designs Meteor Light Tent - 2008 Model:

Tent is plenty of room for two people. Sometimes I'll cram our packs inside the tent if its raining. But if the weather is fair I will put the packs in the spacious vestible. I've camped all over the north east from the Adirondacks to the smokey mountains in snow, rain and hot heat and the tent was great. Once in the smokey mountains we got a huge rain storm and we watched the rain flow underneath the tent floor and never did we get wet. I was sold on it then without a doubt. I bought my meteor light in 1997 and looking to replace it with the same thing. They made a few modified it aliitle to make it even better so im excited to get a newer one. Ya people say its on the heavy side. It is I won't disagree but you gotta remember its a good sized tent not one of those coffin tents that you can't roll over in. And if your pairing equipment share the weight and its fine. Its one of my best pieces of equipment...
