Summary: Summary: Although others have complained of moisture inside their Meteor Light, I was certainly "hung out to dry" by this tent's manufacturer. I'm writing this review so that if you do own or decide to purchase a newer-model Meteor Light, know that the poles are irreplaceable.
Pros: Roomy (especially with the 2 vestibules), Good aeration, Lots of mesh pockets and loops for small articles
Cons: Threading the ridge sleeve can be clumsy in rain/cold, Heavy, Expensive

Excerpt: Hard to rate this product having mixed feelings! Have used it extensively on numerous hikes and treks and have taken it around the world for 15 months. Sierra Designs put some stiffening tape on the zipper fly-covers as I did not like the way they caught in the zipper constantly.

Excerpt: Light, easy to set up, but I've noted two serious flaws with this "award winning tent" after three years of use: 1) Dripping! In wet weather the flysheet will sag, touching the tent mesh top roof--you get drips onto your face or sleeping bag's lower area (depending on your orientation).

Excerpt: It's a wonderful tent. It's easy to set up, with only three poles. Two are slip-ins, and the last is a clip in. The toughest part is getting the fly on the right way. It's not quick--or maybe it's me--but the fastest I've set it up is about ten minutes.

Excerpt: I've used this tent for four years and it has endured torrential all-night thunderstorm rains, one foot of wet snow, freezing rain, sleet, hail(ping pong-sized), and winds exceeding 50 mph on exposed ridges. All common in the Guadalupe Mountains NP.

Excerpt: I've used this tent everywhere over the last three years. Down in the Grand Canyon, Glacier Nat. Park, four treeline camp spots in CO. etc. My best story is when I was in the Boundary Waters in upper Minnesota in late October and experienced HUGE winds and rain and about a 1/2" of gumball sized...

Excerpt: I've used this tent for three years, almost exclusively in Vermont summers/falls. More often than not, conditions have been wet and/or humid. I've loved many of the features that this tent offers -- great space, ease of set-up, good vestibule -- but I continue to have drip problems.

Excerpt: I've had this tent for seveal seasons and have found it very useful and versatile. Setup is very easy. The roof vents do a good job, but heavy Pacific NW condensation conditions occasionally cuase water to drip in. Size for two is excellent, vestibule will hold your packs and boots.

Excerpt: I have had this tent for just about two years now and I have had no large problems with it. The ties to tie back the vestibule are slightly clumbsy but that is the least of your worries. My first night in the rain with this supurb tent I was a little nervous. Not one leak!
