The Sierra Designs Flash 3 FL Tent maintains the same space and luxury as its more husky comrade, the Flash 3, but it's much lighter to suit the needs of ultralight backpackers. What makes this tent so much lighter is its hybrid wall construction, which blends the benefits of both double wall and single wall construction, so you get a tent that's as light as a single wall yet weather protective like a double wall. This innovative design also helps you set the tent up quickly in bad weather, and its steep walls and high ceiling give more space than conventional backpacking tents without any added weight. The gear closets also have plenty of space for multiple backpacks and several pairs of shoes, and Sierra Designs placed the closets opposite the doors so you don't have to climb over all your gear to get in and out. Sierra designs built both the fly and the floor out of ripstop fabric for durability without the weight, and the body features no see um mesh walls that provide an ample amount of airflow for the warmer nights. The thin DAC NSL poles are surprisingly strong for how light they are, and the 15 inch integrated awning poles maximize the tent's space without adding the weight of another support pole. This superlight tent will serve you with comfort, luxury, and a good night's sleep whether you're trekking the Appalachian Trail or doing a quick weekend trip in your home range. It fits three people snugly or gives elbow room when it's just you and another backpacking buddy.
