Product Description Item No.   10238756

The Sierra Designs Lightning 2 Tent is a two person backpacking tent for traveling the backcountry. The freestanding tent comes in at just under four pounds and sports a hybrid double/single wall that no only helps drop the weight but allows for dry set up when you arrive at camp in the pouring rain. Remember how ridiculous you used to look attempting to toss a rainfly over your tent in gale-force winds with driving rain? Not only does this design prevent that, but the large single door has a 15 inch awning, clearing your door from rain drops as you exit and enter. The two side gear closets protect your pack, shoes, and other items from getting drenched without blocking the doorway. Accessible from the inside and outside of the tent, you don't even have to share a spot for your gear with your hiking partner. All the space on the inside is ready for sleeping, or sitting up and playing a game of cards until night falls or the rain fades away.

FEATURES of the Sierra Designs Lightning 2 Tent

  • Freestanding: Can be pitched anywhere-no matter how impenetrable the surface
  • Large single drop door: Single door saves weight, but is uncommonly wide and large enough for two to sit side by side
  • 15" integrated awning pole: Maximizes the door opening and drip line without the added weight of a support pole
  • Hybrid double/single wall: Reduces weight and provides quick set-up, even in the rain

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality tent for the casual backpacker The tent was made great the materials on this cheaper model still feel like top of the line. The limited ventilation makes this tent great for spring and fall trips. I was expecting the base fabric to be a little thicker but haven't had an issue with it yet. The poles are super light and it comes with everything you could ever need. the line lockers make tightening down the tent super easy so you don't need to worry about getting the steak in the ground perfectly. The large front door does take some getting used to and it is hard not to wake up ur partner when getting out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is so good. I wish I had one! I purchased this for my son, and it is every bit as good as I thought. Goes up quickly, plenty of room inside, easy access to gear kept inside or out. The only things I don't like about it, and I'm sure it's a weight thing, is the narrowness of the back end, and the height. Seems a little tight for a 2-person tent at the back end, and the height drops a little too fast, limiting where I can sit out a hard rain.,,,,Other than that, SD has scored another great tent. Almost makes me want to give up my Alpha-CD!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, I would recommend this product! So far a good tent - it's lightweight and SUPER easy/fast to setup. I bought it for my boyfriend last Christmas, and we have used it a few times. I bought it originally for backpacking and summit adventures since it is lighter and more compact than all of our hammock gear (plus we can cuddle & keep warm & not worry about finding trees). It's enough room for the both of us to sleep comfortably and sit upright if needed (he's 5'11" 190lbs & I'm 5'8" 140lbs). The side access to our gear is really helpful and even though it only has one door, on e of us can sneak out for a pee break in the middle of the night without waking the other. We have not yet rain tested it, but it got some condensation inside of the tent when it rained the night before. I live in the southeast so all of my tents have condensation due to the humidity down here so it may not just be the tent. So far we enjoy it, and I'll try to update this review after more use and some rain.
