Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big disappointment This tent might be a good winter tent but I would not recommend it for any place were there is rain. We found the walls to leak water in a heavy rain since it was only a single wall tent. However for some reason the floor is completely water proof so one night in Nepal we woke to find ourselves and all our gear floating in inches of water. The tent is small so we often were elbowing each other as we moved around or were hitting the sides of the tent causing the frost condensation in the mornings to come raining down on us. It was lightweight for sure but we lived a very wet existence for the 3 months of our trek. We would not use this tent again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lighter, Faster I bought one of the original Gore-tex I-Tent during the mid-80's which I still have and it is a bomb proof tent. When the Firstlight came out I worried it was to fragile, but it is not. When you get in a situation with bad weather on snow above treeline, this tent is great. The Firstlight is lighter, more compact, and super easy to setup. Most tents are easy to setup when the weather is nice, but how easy and fast are they when the weather condition go bad and/or you are exhausted? As I have aged, I'm looking for equipment that is lighter, simple to use, less bulk, and that works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite tent This is indeed my favorite tent. I have slept many nights in it on Mt Rainier and several other peaks in the cascades. Last July we were in heavy winds on rainier. Another tent in our party collapsed when a pole snapped but the first light stood strong. On an earlier trip a couple of years ago while attempting the Kautz, the first light kept us dry and snug in heavy rain and wind. The tent is light and affords plenty of room, although cozy, for two big climbers. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Execllent i bought this for winter camping, it super simple to set up taking only minutes. i stayed in this down to around zero degrees with snow and was well protected. i did experience some moister on the inside, but all i had to do was exit the tent and thump the sides and the frozen moisture fell to the floor. i then simply picked up the tent and shook it out. i know this couldn't be done in a high wind but overall and excellent tent. the fact the night was very still with no wind i think contributed to the buildup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit short The simplicity and functionality of this tent are great. Set up is fast and can be done in such a way that you keep the inside more or less dry when its coming down. I bought this tent based on the dimensions listed on the site. I am 6'2'' (74 in) and sometimes use a long sleeping bag. Despite the listed length of 84'', I BARELY fit in this tent, another couple inches would be more comfortable. When I use my long sleeping bag it is less than ideal. Still happy with this tent for many uses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great format, poor venting. I love the simple format of the tent. However the design has a big flaw: there is no way to vent air in from below and chimney out near the top. We experienced far more condensation inside compared to a Bibler Eldorado in the same conditions (Cascades). Please consider fixing. I love the light weight. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just back from the Latok/Ogre cirque I spent seven weeks in the Karakorum and used the firstlight during climbing forays. If lightweight and easy setup are for you...look no further! I'm 6 ft. Tall and it's long enough for me but if you're much taller it might be too short. I stayed dry during several snow events. It is certainly snug and you might consider the vestibule...I, for one, was going as light as possible. It's on my equipment list for a go at San Lorenzo in Patagonia this January!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent!! I have probably had this tent 4 years and I love it! It has been on several backpacking trips. Per the instructions the seams were sealed and there are no leaks yet. It is so easy to set up and as a bonus, you can set it up inside if its raining out. The poles seem to be of highest quality and have a great feel when you snap the ends together.
