  • Summary: This is a great, lightweight, 2-person tent with room for packs inside. Personally I wouldn't go for a tight 3-person fit.
  • Pros: LIGHTWEIGHT, Fairly easy setup
  • Cons: All the mesh. The rainfly is the only real roof.

  • Excerpt: My daughter and one dog and I used this tent for our 5 day backpacking trip along the Colorado Trail and were very happy with it. The storage bag that it came with was large and bulky, so we had to use a different bag from another tent. The Sirius 3 did pack nice and tight and compact, with all the pieces rolling up together. This tent is the easiest I have ever set up. It took a minute to figure out the fly though.

  • Excerpt: What drew me to this tent initially was the allure of my first sub 5 lb. tent (and my first "real" tent). It is billed as a 3 person tent, but if you plan on sleeping that many be aware that it will be very tight, but doable. This tent weighs almost as little as many 2 person tents, and as a 2 person tent, this baby is great. Each person has their own door, which is great for 2. When there are 3 people, the middle person will have to climb over one of the other 2 people.

Wow, amazing you can get this tent for 100 bucks now.

  • Excerpt: Wow, amazing you can get this tent for 100 bucks now. Anyway, other reviews summed up this tent really well, so I feel there's not a lot to cover. It wouldn't be great in extremely wet conditions if you had to traverse in and out, but waiting out a heavy rain for the night with no pee breaks was fine. Have used it numerous times for 3 season backpacking. Setup is quick and easy. Vented well with minimal condensation. Enough loops and pockets to keep 2 people satisfied.

  • Excerpt: OK for motorcycle camping. The Sierra Designs Sirius 3 is one of the five tents I have used on past motorcycle camping trips. I bought it at an REI scratch and dent sale and have used it on a few trips. My observations of the tent agree with the comments made by other reviewers. First of all, it has a great space to weight ratio.

  • Excerpt: I bought this tent this past spring 2008. I used it regularly throughout the summer and am very happy with my purchase. The tent is well designed, comes together very easily, and fits in the tent bag without any hassle. The only foreseeable issue you may have with this tent is that it's a little bit of a tight squeeze for three people. It will hold three, but I would only recommend getting this tent if you will likely be using it for two or fewer people at one time.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this tent as 2007 closeout model special (from Sierra Trading Post). Pros: (1) Extremely light-weight (2) Easy to pitch by yourself, and especially fast pitching it with a partner. (3) Great ventilation (4) Double entry doors (5) The Quick Pitch Swivel pole system seem to make it more sturdy during strong wind gusts. (5) Plenty of length. I'm 6'1'' and no problems. (6) Awesome price-to-weight ratio!

  • Excerpt: My wife and I bought this tent last year for a trip to the sequoias/high sierras. My wife, me and our aussie cattle dog fit comfortably inside. We were both very happy with how fast it was to set up and tear down. On average, it takes us half the time as everyone else we go camping/backpacking with to set up camp.

I purchased this tent for camping and backpacking.

Trailspace.com
30 September 2007
  • Excerpt: I purchased this tent for camping and backpacking. I'm very happy with this product! It's light and very simple to set up. This is a very well thought out design as far as tent assembly goes. It's a three-man tent, but I use it for me and my girl. It would be a little cramped for three people. It's a freestanding tent, so it doesn't need to be staked down. I do recommend at least staking down the rainfly at a minimum.

Paul A (guest), Trailspace.com
29 March 2007
  • Excerpt: The perfect tent for two adults and a dog. My wife and I routinely hike with our shepherd and this is the perfect size tent. We really enjoy all the possibilities for ventilation since 1/2 the tent is mesh with a fly. You can leave the fly off, have it pulled down tight, or just about anything in between. Also, having a door on each side is good. The vestibules are big enough to protect your shoes, but not much more.
