Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for summer use I've been using this tent for some years now, and in the winter, it's a great little tent. It's strong and takes snow well. You can seam-seal it and so on, and it just won't hold up to real rain. After a few hours of rain, the material will begin to wet out and leak. For ski tours and alpine excursions though, it's so light! Some bummers about these tiny tents are it's difficult to cook inside them, and of course a pair of -30C sleeping bags take up a lot of space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultralight tent I’ve only camped once in this tent so far and could not complain. It is easy to install wind resistant 1-ply tent. Things to keep in mind is that there is no fly cover included so that you need to bring everything inside of the tent if you don’t want it to get wet. That includes the backpacks and boots. You also need to tape seal seams with provided glue 2-3 days before the first use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Solid Tent This tent is extremely light and compact which makes it great for any backpacking trip. The tent is super easy to set up by yourself and is the perfect size for one person with winter gear and it would be snug for two. The material is thin but feels solid. You have to stake this tent down good as even the smallest breeze really effects the tent. Also, this tent does built up condensation but its a small price to pay for the weight and is to be expected with single walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable for car camping or for backcountry. I love both this tent and the 1-person model, but this gives me a bit more space if I'm on the road ...fits a large mat perfectly...but I also used it on Rainier and Shasta with 2-people in foul weather and was very pleased with its performance for the weight.

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.

I saw the Black Diamond First light wasabi available with taped seams? I saw it advertised last spring with taped seams.

Asked by: GottaWalk
Hey there! Thanks for your question. The seams on the First Light Wasabi are not sealed; they are folded over and stitched. To seal the seams, I would recommend checking out Seam Grip: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Seam-Grip-Permanently-Fixed-Sealer-Adhesive-1-oz-Tube/26965787 Hope that helps!
