    Roomy and comfortable enough, although difficult to set up for the first few times. Fly clips are very difficult to undo. However, it's extremely light & compact and great value for the price paid.

      Comments about Light Year 1 Tent - 1 person, 3 season:

      I bought this tent for a solo bike trip because I needed something light that was still roomy enough to hang out it (ie, not a bivy sack). I am incredibly happy with it. It packs really small, so it fit easily in my panier, and it was quite light. Pretty quick and easy to set up. I don't love the way that the fly attachments work, but once you figure them out it's not that bad. All in all, a great purchase.

        Really liked the product. Shipped fast, was well priced, ways nothing, looked nice. My wife and I each have one and found that, though a little cramped, we could even share one over night (I am 5'10" 200lbs). I also like that this tent came in earth tone colors so it doesnt draw attention in the woods like a road flare.

            Hello, currently we are currently offering the most up to date model. It is the 2011/2012 model which had some updates in 2011. That model carried over into 2012.

          Q:

          what is the difference between 'weight' and 'minimum weight' of this tent's specifications?
          Asked on 2/9/2012 by boulderhiker from boulder, co

          1 answer

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            That is a great question! The "weight" value is everything the tent comes with. The "minimum weight" value is the necessary tent pieces without tent stakes, guylines, and any accessories that might not be absolutely necessary to set the tent up and sleep in it. i.e. some users want to cut weight when backpacking for example and wonder what the tents minimum weight could be.
