Where ultralight meets comfort.
Sierra Designs extended stepped up its ultralight backpacking tent game with the Tensegrity 1 FL Tent. Unlike most tents, the Tensegrity's no-see-um mesh walls widen up top to give you a roomier feel. Sierra Designs also designed this tent with 360-degree ventilated airflow to keep you comfortably cool in warmer weather, and the water-resistant floor and fly protect you from wet weather during the cold seasons.
The Tensegrity 1 FL also features two large drop doors with awning coverages under both that keep the sun and weather out of your tent, even with the doors open. The gear closet is large enough for all your gear, and you can roll it up to have a starry sky to see before you fall asleep. Trekking pole compatible means you can go lighter by switching the durable DAC poles out with your own trekking poles.

- Q & A
I would not recommend this tent
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this tent because I liked the sleek design and the lightweight for backpacking. I was happy with it when I used it on 2 backpacking trips in June and July when the weather was perfect. However, on the 3rd trip, which was a 6 night trip, the rear pole broke and I had to duct tape it together. I'm very unhappy that it broke! But also, the weather had forecasted that there could be "light showers occasionally" so we weren't really concerned, having backpacked in snow, rain and wind before. However, this storm that rolled in brought heavy rains and winds and this "3-season" tent was not up to the task. The "sleek" design ended up being a serious problem as the weight of the rain caused it to sag terribly and I had to continually get up in the middle of the night, in the storm to tighten the guy lines. The open vents, which were great in warm weather became a serious problem with the sideways rain. I used a large Hefty bag to cover the door opening but there was no way to make it tight against the tent and rain and mud were able to get in. there wasn't any way to keep the rain and the wind from coming in the rear vent and by morning, my tent was a bit of a muddy lake and I was freezing. This is a great summer tent, but should not be advertised as a 3 season tent. I lost my phone so have no pictures to post, sadly...
