New for 2014! The Sierra Designs Flashlight 1 UL tent is a feature-rich non-freestanding option for solo backpackers who appreciate comfort, but need to travel as light as possible. Trekking pole pitch compatibility offers even greater weight savings by allowing you to leave the vertical tent poles at home, and with only 6 stake-outs, the Flashlight 1 UL is a snap to set up.
The Flashlight 1 UL has 18.8 square feet of interior space. A single gear closet that’s out of the way of the door can be toggled open or closed on the outside of the tent and provides an additional 7.5 square feet of sheltered space for stashing larger items like packs and boots.
The hybrid double/single wall design of the Flashlight 1 UL reduces weight and further aids in quick set-up, while DAC NSL/Pressfit aluminum poles, 8” awning coverage, and the uncommonly large single drop door add to the list of great features. The tent has a trail weight of just 2 pounds, 4 ounces and you can reduce weight further by leaving the two front vertical poles behind and using your trekking poles (not included) in their place.
Ample mesh on the tent body and awning coverage that allows the door or window to remain open even in a rainstorm provide circulation to fight condensation build-up in the Flashlight 1 UL. Coated with waterproof polyurethane, the 40D nylon ripstop floor and 30D polyester nylon ripstop rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Flashlight 1 UL’s seams are tape-sealed to protect the tent interior from the elements.
The Sierra Designs Flashlight 1 UL tent is designed for 3-season use.
