Appeasing the most minimalist backpackers out there.
Sierra Designs took its lightest solo tent and made it even lighter to put a smile on the most minimalist backpackers around with the Flashlight 1 FL Tent. The designers blended single-wall and double-wall construction, which they call hybrid construction, in order to give you a tent that's
as light as a single-wall tent but still weather-protective like a
double-wall tent. This design lets you set the tent up quickly in bad weather, but still offers plenty of storage space, especially with the integrated gear closet. In fact, this tent has an eight-inch
awning that gives you a dry space to cook comfortably in poor
conditions, and the drop door has a large opening so you can enjoy the
view from the comfort of your own sleeping bag.
Sierra Designs built the floor out of ripstop for durability, the fly out of nylon to keep it durably light, and the body out of no-see-um mesh for ventilation. Not only do the walls provide a lot of ventilation, but the construction of the entire tent enhances airflow to keep you comfortable while you sleep through a warm summer's night. This non-freestanding tent comes with a superlight DAC Pressfit pole and two vertical poles that you can replace with your trekking poles if you want to shave six ounces off your load.
