New for 2014! The Sierra Designs Flashlight 2 UL tent is a feature-rich non-freestanding option for 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 2 UL is a snap to set up.
The Flashlight 2 UL 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 UL reduces weight and further aids in quick set-up, while DAC NSL/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, 2 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 UL. Coated with waterproof polyurethane, the 40D nylon ripstop floor and 30D polyester nylon ripstop rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Flashlight 2 UL’s seams are tape-sealed to protect the tent interior from the elements.
The Sierra Designs Flashlight 2 UL tent is designed for 3-season use.
