The Mountain Hardwear Sprite 1 Tent offers lightweight luxury for weight-conscious backpackers and cyclists on the move. Thanks to its tough poles, arching structure, and durable fabrics, the Sprite is up for a rugged, three-seaons challenge. But its lightweight design means that the tent weighs less than three pounds and won’t hold you back during your thru-hiking quests.

  • Super-lightweight DAC NSL aluminum poles
  • Evolution Tension Arch for stability with fewer poles
  • SVX window for brighter interior and ability to see outside without opening the tent
  • Dry vestibule entry so you don't track snow and mud into the tent
  • Pitch light configuration allows you to set up a shelter with just the footprint, poles, and fly for a .5 pound weight reduction

Pretty good little tent

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this tent about three years ago and have used it on several backpacking trips with very good results. With only two poles it goes up in a flash. The only complains I have is that it's a little short for me and I'm only 5"10'' tall, but then I like to sleep stretched out. The rain fly and base are really water proof, so if you do get caught out during a rain storm you will stay dry. Overall a good value.

cozy like a coffin

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This poor tent sat through a 24 hour down pour in West Virgina and, aside from some minimal condensation, stayed completely dry.

The only issue I have is with the size. I'm 5'8" and don't have much head/foot room in this tent. I also had a hard time wrestling my 65L into the "stash" corner. If you're not Andre the Giant and you pack's a fantastic tent.

nicely built

    Now here is A tent somebody thought through. It has room to turn around in it has room to put your gear under the rain fly and it has a little side storage in the tent for food electronics ect.... The rain fly held well no condensation or the one time I was in the rain it did not leak. All and all it is a light well built and strong one person tent!
