The Sierra Designs Flashlight 2 tent is a feature-rich non-freestanding option for backpackers 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 the included stakes the Flashlight 2 is a snap to set up.
The Flashlight 2 has 29.9 square feet of interior space. Dual gear closets that are out of the way of the door can be toggled open or closed on the outside of the tent and provide an additional combined 6.2 square feet of sheltered space for stashing larger items like packs and boots. Another cool feature is the inclusion of the Sierra Designs Night Glow accessory, a light diffusing “shade” that couples with any headlamp (not included) to hang from the ceiling of the tent to serve as a backpacking/camping lantern.
The hybrid double/single wall design of the Flashlight 2 reduces weight and further aids in quick set-up, while DAC Pressfit aluminum poles, awning coverage, and large drop doors add to the list of great features. The tent has a trail weight of just 3 pounds, 8 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.
