I was in a rainstorm from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. (7 hrs).

  • Summary: I was in a rainstorm from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. (7 hrs). I expected to be wet and my gear soaked. On the contrary, I stayed dry during a 7-hr downpour of rain. I did not want to get out of the tent, because temperatures were in the mid-30's. I was afraid if I got soaked, hypothermia might set in. I stayed warm and dry during this downpour. Further up the trail I ran into snow. I'm glad I had the Black Diamond Hi-light tent to keep me dry and warm!
  • Pros: Easy setup, Can endure long downpour of rain, Will keep you warm, Lightweight
  • Cons: Wish the pole setup was external to the tent

  • Excerpt: It's quite heavy for today's standards. Can be operated pretty easy, the nose it's keylock and it's designed to be used for belaying / rappelling. I used it mainly for belaying with a Petzl Reverso device.

This is a truly great tent but it does have its limitations.

  • Excerpt: This is a truly great tent but it does have its limitations. This is not a tall person's tent, I'm 5'8" and it fits me great but if you're over six feet tall then go with the BD Lighthouse. Also this isn't a tent you can lie in and gaze up at the stars. Here's what it does have: great ventilation which means virtually no condensation. I slept in it during a torrential downpour in Yosemite one Memorial Day weekend and stayed totally dry and comfy.

  • Excerpt: The lightest most durable 2 person tent I have ever used. Just over 2.5 lbs. Absolutely easy to set up. Secure with just 4 stakes and absolutely stormproof. Virtually no condensation in Louisiana summer weather, and it's a single wall tent. The best tent I've ever bought. I also have a Mountain Hardwear Trango Assault and a Sierra Designs Comet.
