The Sierra Designs Flashlight 2
tent is a feature-rich non-freestanding option for looking to balance weight
and comfort. 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 2 is a snap to set up.
The Flashlight 2 has 30 square feet of
interior space. Dual gear closets that are out of the way of both large doors
can be toggled open or closed on the outside of the tent and provide an
additional combined 9.8 square feet (4.9 sq. ft. per closet) of sheltered space
for stashing larger items like packs and boots.
The hybrid double/single wall design of the Flashlight
2 reduces weight and further aids in quick set-up, while DAC Pressfit aluminum
poles, 8" awning coverage, and the uncommonly large dual drop doors add to the
list of great features. The tent has a trail weight of just 3 pounds, 6 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 doors or windows to remain open even in a rainstorm
provide circulation to fight condensation build-up in the Flashlight 2. Coated
with waterproof polyurethane, the 70D nylon taffeta floor and 75D polyester
taffeta rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Flashlight 2’s seams
are tape-sealed to protect the tent interior from the elements.
The Sierra Designs
Flashlight 2 tent is designed for 3-season use.
