Updated for 2014! The Sierra Designs Flash 2 tent is a lightweight, roomy, freestanding, external pitch tent that provides ventilated refuge in a matter of seconds. Two doors and two gear closets supply easy access and storage, while steep walls give an open feel when you’re inside.
The Flash 2 offers 29.9 square feet of usable interior space, making it comfortable for two people and luxuriously spacious for solo campers. Dual gear closets are accessed from inside the tent to keep gear storage out of the way of the doors and provide an additional combined 7 square feet (3.5 sq. ft. per closet) of sheltered space for stashing larger items like packs and boots.
When wet weather threatens, the quick, external pitch set-up provides a dry, well-ventilated space in a matter of seconds, while the reflective door trim and guy outs make finding your tent in the dark an easy task.
The hybrid double/single wall design of the Flash 2 adds stability without weight, while ultra-light clips, DAC Pressfit aluminum poles and uncommonly large single drop doors add to the list of great features. The trail weight of the tent is 4 pounds, 12 ounces.
Ample mesh on the tent body and the dual doors maximize cross ventilation and provide circulation to fight condensation build-up in the Flash 2. Coated with waterproof polyurethane, the nylon taffeta floor and polyester taffeta rainfly are lightweight and durable. The rainfly also has venting to create internal airflow. All of the Flash 2’s seams are tape-sealed to protect the tent interior from the elements.
A custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the Sierra Designs Flash 2 against rocks, exposed roots, mud and ground water.
