With a packed size of 19" x 5" and a feather-light trail weight of 2 pounds 11 ounces, the Sierra Designs Light Year 1 is an ideal choice for lightweight devotees and solo backpackers. Best of all, despite its light weight, the Light Year 1 hasn't sacrificed the construction or features necessary to make it a functional 3-season option.
The Light Year 1's 20 square feet of interior space is designed for the solo hiker. Sewn-in pockets serve as interior gear hideaways and a small vestibule provides additional sheltered storage space outside of the main tent body.
DAC Featherlite NSL aluminum poles provide the Light Year 1 with support and stability. Sierra Designs non-rotating Elbow connectors increase the frame strength by locking the poles in place at the point of suspension. Sturdy, streamlined Ultralight Clips help to keep trail weight to a minimum. Reflective guy lines help to further secure the Light Year 1 and provide visibility when returning to your tent after dark.
The Light Year 1's SuperSeal Floor has a raised, taped perimeter that maintains a tight pitch and guarantees waterproof protection. Environmentally-friendly PVC-free seam tape protects the interior of the Light Year 1 from moisture and precipitation.
A custom-fit footprint (sold separately) is available to further protect the floor of your Light Year 1 from mud, ground water and sharp objects such as rocks and pine needles.
