  • Summary: I had this bad boy when I thru Hiked the Appalachian Trail back in '09. I loved this thing. Not only does it keep me dry, but it is also super light and easy to set up. This was a lifesaver a few times on those colder nights up in the mountains of Maine.
  • Pros: Light, Easy to use
  • Cons: None!

  • Excerpt: This summer I hiked near the crest of the Sierra with a few guys who had fancy, expensive tents. We were in a big storm with wind and pouring rain. They all got wet. I was snug in my inexpensive, light-weight tent. Entry is easy. I just step in and squat down.

  • Excerpt: No respect intended to the individual giving this one star. Apparently after 5 years, the individual tried to use it and when they opened it, a pole was missing -- which SD replaced immediately. That is pretty good customer service.

  • Excerpt: This is an amazing tent for the price and weight. It's completed the AT twice, survived heavy snow and rainfalls and it's still kicking. It's been setup in pitch black with me being completely exhausted and still only took a few minutes.

  • Excerpt: I had this tent for five years before I used it, but I wanted to have one on hand for solo backpacking. When it originally came, it came minus the front tent pole. It took a couple of calls to the company, but they did send the missing pole.

  • Excerpt: After more than a year of research, and two abandoned (gave away) tents, I finally bought a Light Year 1 for my solo trekking. The Light Year is a near-perfect one person tent. It is much more roomy than any of the other one person tents I saw, used, or tried. It sets up easily in a couple minutes.

  • Excerpt: I'm doing an initial review after getting this on a supersale brand new at REI. So two things to keep in mind, I'm reviewing this after picking it up for cheap ($50) and I've only ever set it up in my basement. So let's review the pros... 1. It set up easy.

  • Excerpt: This is a great tent...if you're short! I'm 5'3" and it works really well for me, but if you were much bigger you'd be having problems. I have plenty of room to sleep, store most of my gear, and even change. So if you're about my size then I would definitely get this tent!

30 December 2005
  • Excerpt: I bought this tent because of its light weight and reasonable price. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone though. It's kind of the worst of both worlds as a tent and a bivy. For a tent it's barely more than a bivy.
