Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5th or 6th FirstLight I use the FirstLight for work, spending about 75-100 nights per year in it. I am now ordering my 5th or 6th since they came out many years ago. If you want a tent that last 15-20 year of heavy use, this is not it, get the Bibler of the same design. But if you want the lightest tent out there this is it. Yes as they age they definitely become less water tight. But I will take super light. Being 6' I would like them to make a long version and I sew tie downs on all 4 sides (the 4 corners already have them) for nasty winds Here is my 'retired' Firstlight I keep in India for annual Himalaya trips

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love a Single Wall! I am 6'3" 195 lbs this tent barely works for my height, but it works. Set up including footprint is rapid. Setup in wind is somewhat difficult because you must engage the inside Velcro tabs around the flex poles or the tent will colaps in wind. I view this as a small problem totally overcome by the tents light weight and ease of set up. Bottom line is this tent would be a stretch as a two person with a person of height. That said, the extra room is great for gear with one person without having to use the vestibule. I also am a fan of quick set up without staking; which this tent accomplishes with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Fast This tent packs small, is very light, and sets-up super fast. Also dries out in seconds before packing. No bells or whistles - just what is needed. Great tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight shelter I just bought my second FirstLight, The previous one was my main tent for over ten years, and it saw a lot of use, mostly solo high altitude backpacking and snow camping in the Sierra. This tent is light, strong, and super easy to set up, even in howling winds. I never tested it in relentless, day-long downpours, but it never leaked in all the storms it's been through, and it's great in the snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and light This tent is fragile. I highly recommend the ground cloth if you set this up on forest or rocky terrain(ground cloth doesn't fit exactly). Sets up super fast and packs easily. I'm 6' and just barely fit length wise. Love the head room and for solo trips this tent has plenty of floor space for all my gear inside without the need for the vestibule. Held up great to some mild Colorado rain without being seam sealed. Also vented well with the somewhat constant wind. Can't wait to get this tent in some snow conditions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Alpine Tent I purchased this tent for alpine climbing. I set it up at our base camp at 10,500 feet in snow. It is very roomy for one person and gear. The guys next door were sharing a Firstlight, and admitted that it was cozy for 2 people. The floor kept me dry during my 2 days in base camo, and the tent was rock solid In windy conditions. Some people have complained about condensation issues with this tent (expected with a single wall tent) but I experienced zero condensation problems. I am very pleased with this tent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tent for the right application I usually don't write reviews but the Firstlight has been so good to me that I just have to. It's been a great tent for light (and semi-fast?) alpine climbs, for spring ski touring and for backpacking in dry climates. It is a pretty tight fit for two people but workable, depending on your relationship even for multiple nights. It is downright luxurious for one person. I found it very easy to pitch, just make sure to put the ends of the poles into grommets so you don't puncture the floor. The fabric and the floor are pretty delicate (= low weight) so be gentle. I have used the tent for ten years (say a total of 300 nights) and it held up great. I was using ground cloth almost all the time which likely helped. It stands up to relatively high winds but it will sway a fair bit so pick the orientation wisely. As the description says, it is not waterproof. We were chased out of Bugaboos after 24 hour non-stop rain... that's a user error, not an issue with the tent. After ten years of use, the floor started leaking when pitched on snow. Unfortunately, this awesome tent met an untimely end when one of the guylines broke in super gusty winds on mt Rainier, it blew off a ledge and then got shredded when I hauled it back up over rocks and ice. But it still kept all out stuff inside from spilling out so great service till the very end! Now I am really split between getting a new Firstlight or an Eldorado (since it would be really nice to have a bit more room and waterproofness but I don't like the idea of additional 2 lbs of weight...).
