The Sierra Designs Flashlight 2 FL 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 the possibility of even greater weight savings by allowing you to leave the vertical tent poles at home, and with minimal required stake-outs, the Flashlight 2 FL is a snap to set up.
The Flashlight 2 FL has 30 square feet of interior space. Dual “out of the way” gear closets can be toggled open or closed on the outside of the tent and provide an additional 6.6 square feet of sheltered space for stashing larger items like packs and boots.
The hybrid double/single wall design of the Flashlight 2 FL reduces weight and further aids in quick set-up, while DAC Pressfit aluminum poles, awning coverage, and uncommonly dual drop doors add to the list of great features. The tent has a trail weight of just 2 pound, 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 door or window to remain open even in a rainstorm provide circulation to fight condensation build-up in the Flashlight 2 FL. Coated with waterproof polyurethane, the 30D nylon ripstop floor and 20D polyester ripstop rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Flashlight 2 FL’s seams are tape-sealed to protect the tent interior from the elements.
The Sierra Designs Flashlight 2 FL tent is designed for 3-season use.

- Would only purchase if you use trekking poles and live in an extremely dry climate.
Likes: Two doors, and very lightweight, would only use buy if you use trekking poles.
Dislikes: I spent the night in this tent and there was a humidity level of 70%. Both of my doors were closed, but when I woke up in the morning and flicked my ceiling, it felt like I was in a rainforest as the water poured down onto my sleeping bag. In case you are a first time tent buyer like I was, that is not a good thing. Also, the peak was very saggy which isn't a big deal other than it doesn't look as good.
