Convert 3 Tent
Sierra Designs set out to develop a tent that will handle all your winter and summer multi-day missions with its Convert 3 4-Season Tent, now updated for even more versatility. Its breathable ripstop construction offers excellent, all-season protection that gives you a dry place to warm up and sleep soundly. And despite its bomber construction, this tent remains fairly lightweight so you won't feel too weighed down while you climb. The tent's aluminum poles are featherlight to keep the weight off your back while you hike, and the locking pole tips prevent the poles from bending and collapsing when the winds start to howl. The floor consists of a durable polyester that Sierra Designs fully taped for extra waterproof protection.
The unique design of the Convert 3 puts a breathable double wall canopy at the tops and sides of the tent, and the fabric is engineered to prevent dust and spindrift from blowing in whether you're camped on a high-elevation snowfield or dusty desert floor. For winter camping, a removable vestibule provides ample storage for all your gear, while a second vestibule, now included with the 2018 model, can be attached at the other side of the tent for even more storage space. When summer camping, the vestibule can be left back at the truck to shave almost a whole pound from the total weight of the tent, and the fly has also been updated with this year's model to be fully removable for staying cool on warm summer nights. An external pitch design makes set up easy in even the most foul weather and two doors make for easy ins and outs throughout the night.

Excellent tent, mediocre stuff sack
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- 160 lbs
Had it for a year now and used it car camping, 3-season backpacking, and as a base camp for winter ski tours. The tent has typically been used to shelter two 160 lb humans and a 95 lb dog, for which it's very spacious and livable, especially considering it's weight. For winter camping I've appreciated the vestibule for large packs, boots etc, and the snow flaps for extra warmth and stability. Connecting some of the clips to the tent poles can be a little finicky and painful with cold fingers, but otherwise setup is quick and easy. I was concerned that the plastic clips would be a weak point, but they've held up fine so far. The tent has felt remained waterproof through deluges and melting snow. The Burrito-bag is a nice idea but poorly executed: the straps on the bag are far to short, making it a fight to get the tent in, if you add the footprint and a full complement of pegs then it's extremely difficult to close; 5 cm longer straps would solve the issue. Overall it's a great tent.

SO LIGHT AND WARM
- I've used it several times
I love this tent! It's extremely light weight and durable. Also still waterproof without the vestibule which takes off a couple pounds for backpacking.
