Justin Hendersonwrote a review of Sierra Designs Lightning XT 3 Tent 3-Person 3-Season on August 8, 2009
I, like other people who have reviewed this tent had a very hard time setting it up for the first time. All I can say is, whoever engineered the pole setup had to have been smoking something. It is very awkward to put together. The system that they have used to attach the rainfly doesn't really work. We're lucky it wasn't windy, because when we woke up in the morning, none of the straps holding the rainfly were attached to the tent anymore. The fly doesn't have enough places to stake it out so that it will pull any rain water away from the tent. Two of the sides, the fly is just resting on the tent wall, so any moisture would transfer to the inside of the tent. The only positive thing about this tent was the weight. To anyone interested in this tent, spend alittle more and get a big agnes copperspur 3. They are way better. Definately worth the money.
