    Comments about Sierra Designs Light Year Tent:

    If you're backpacking in the backcountry and complaining about this tent being too heavy you should probably take a bivy bag next time.Weighting in at 2lbs-11oz.,you don't even know it's back there.Set up time is approximately 5 mins. once you get the hang of it.Don't forget the footprint SD makes for this particular tent,it'll pay for itself in the long run.Pitching on a ever-so-slight crown in the ground is preferable in case of rain showers,water drainage you know.

    Comments about Sierra Designs Light Year Tent:

    I've used this tent for a year now and have never been wet despite camping in thundershowers and heavy rain. Condensation is a problem but with the mesh inner tent, I've never actually been wet because of it. The vestibule is really only suited for a pair of boots and a water bottle but I just bring my pack into the tent and there is plenty of room. I'm 5'7" and have never felt cramped and can sit up to change with no difficulty, its more of a 1.5 person tent if you're not too big. Not freestanding, requires at least two stakes and is actually much better fully staked out but it is easy and quick to set up. The stuff sack is terrible, so buy one separately if you use one. Not the lightest tent on the market, but cannot be beat for price and comfort.

      Comments about Sierra Designs Light Year Tent:

      I bought this in January in Maine, and I'm not crazy enough to use it this time of year, so I'm giving my impressions of it having set it up inside. I love this tent and can't wait to use it. I bought it mainly to use during 3-4 day kayaking trips so i needed something sturdy, lightweight, packs down very small, and does not cost an arm and a leg. This fits the bill. It sets up very easily. The poles are much nicer than other poles I've used in higher prices ranges. Also, the "Jake's Foot" connections are really cool. I wish I could comment on the rain fly and durability, but having not used it yet, I can't. All i can say is, looking over the tent, it appears that I will not have issues with wind and rain getting in. I trust Sierra Design, which is comforting. Buy it, you'll like it.

        I purchased this tent for a 4-day backpacking trip in Dark Canyon, UT. Its light weight made for a comfortable pack weight. The tent performed like a champ--staying dry during unexpected rain storms even w/o a ground cloth. I would definitely recommend this great, little tent!

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        NADINE B  Light weight, ease of set up, design shape good for high wind and weather.
        Shopper  does this need waterproofed? specifically does the fly need waterproofed? Do the seams need sealed?
        CRAIG T  All seams are taped and do not need to be sealed. The fly, as well as the bathtub floor, is water proof. the coverage of this tent is very good and very low ttle water gets in except when entering and exiting the tent.
        Shopper  Is the tent self standind?
        STEVE K  Technically speaking, this tent is NOT self supporting and needs two stakes, one at the head and one at the foot to be stable. Unless you're camping on solid rock this shouldn't pose a problem. I've had very good luck with this tent.
