  • 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. Over the last ten years I have purchased six tents, one of which is the Stretch Prelude.

  • 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. The result is inevitable drips in about eight places and wet people and gear. We tried two models that were both well seam sealed.
