  • Excerpt: After careful examination of multiple high quality 4-person, 4-season mountaineering tents I decided to purchase the Sierra Designs Stretch Prelude because it was the only tent I found that met all my criteria; quality craftsmanship, storm worthiness, can actual sleep four, weight, and price.

  • Excerpt: I've been very happy with my Prelude. It's called a 4-man tent but we only sleep 3 in it. Vestibule can hold 3 backpacks. Get some wetness at back of tent at bottom of fly in rainstorms, but didn't mind it much as we only go out for a couple days at a time.

  • Excerpt: We really wanted to like this tent because it was comfortable, light and strong in the wind, but we were very disappointed in its performance in any rain. To make a long story short; the clips on the fly that hold it so well to the tent actually wick the water through the fly and onto the tent.
