Pros:
  • Lightweight, little over 5 pounds if you include rain fly and ground cover
  • Room, lots of room
Cons:
  • No gear loft

The H-shape pole geometry, versus the traditional X-shape geometry, provide the maximum livable space. Especially for the two people along the edge of the tent who would typically get crowded by the curved sidewalls at your feet and head. You still have a curved sidewall where your side is, but your head and feet have more room than a typical X-shaped tent. The D-style entrances make for easy access for all campers. How would you like to be the third person in the tent and need to step over two other people to do so? I didn't think so. Instead, worse case is you are stepping over one person max.

Easy setup with the three poles and Jake's foot make this an easy setup. The Jake's foot is basically a ball and socket joint versus the standard grommet. You twist the foot and the ball on the end of the pole is released from the clip. Simple and secure. The rain fly for this tent includes two vestibules on each side with one larger than the other.

This is a free standing tent if you are not using the rainfly. Included is the tent, rain fly, pole sack with stake pocket, 6 J-stakes, 4 guy cords and poles.

Perfect lightweight tent for up to 3 people or 2 people and gear. If you are looking for maximum livable space with easy setup, the Sierra Designs Lightning HT 3-Person Ultralight Backpacking tent is just the ticket.
