With a weight barely more than a bivy sack, the Sierra Designs Tensegrity 1 Elite 1 Person Tent is a lightweight backpacking tent with plenty of room you, yourself, and you to spread out, relax, and enjoy the undiluted view of the stars. The unique design of Sierra Designs' Tensegrity tents give them a large gear closet at the front of the tent while giving you two large doors at both sides for quick exits in the middle of the night. Not only does the gear closet keep your pack out of the elements, but it can be raised with the help of your trekking poles, giving your tent a porch. The tent has a non free standing design, which requires two fixed or adjustable trekking poles for setup. It also features a star gazing pitch option, so you can enjoy some time under the stars on those clear nights in the high country. To increase the versatility of the tent, the Tensegrity comes without the seams sealed, giving experienced backpackers the option to seal the seams themselves.
