      Comments about Sprite 1 Tent - 1 Person, 3 Season:

      I got this tent in 2004 when it was called the 'PCT', a very good tent. I am still using mine.

      Over approximately 250 bag nights over 8 years, never a leak, no blown downs, no rips, no tears, just perfect performance.

      I have had it set up in drenching downpours (3 hours) a light snow, high winds (30-40 mph gusts)in the desert and the mountains. It is a perfect tent for me at 5'8" 150 lbs.

      If treated right, this will be the last tent you ever need to buy.

        okay the tent is pretty nice, packs very well, the poles are awesome, there very lightweight. tent takes about 2min to set up. comes with a free footprint. first time i used the tent it rained, i was not wet, the rainfly works great. i have a high sierra xplorer 55 pack and fits great in the vest. zippers are high quality, large enought entrance. im 5.10, i can just about sit up in the tent. thats prolly the only downside. i wish the tent was 2inch taller lol. great buy for the price.

        Comments about Sprite 1 Tent - 1 Person, 3 Season:

        I used this tent camping around Kenya. I like the extra wedge space on the inside where I can place my backpack out of the way with easy access to it. The fly seems durable and tightens tight like a drum, however it didn't rain while I used this tent so I can't comment on how weatherproof the fly is. The fly forms a small vestibule to cover your boots with extra room. I estimate the weight of the tent, fly, footprint, poles and titanium stakes i bought are about 4 pounds.
        I would recommend this tent with the caveat that it is not free standing and at the site chosen the user must be able to stake or secure at least 4 key points securely.
        One other thing, I wish the fly would sit lower to the ground. Being around lions i was concerned that the edge of the fly might be too high at 3 inches off the ground in some cases. This seemed to vary on how even and level the site was.

          Can this tent be used on a rock surface?

          • A:

            The tent is not recommended for rock surface since it requires pegs.

            This is a non-free standing tent, meaning that it will need to be staked out in order to stay upright. You could certainly use a footprint underneath the floor of the tent to protect it from the rocky surface, but staking out the tent will be difficult (and nearly impossible) on that surface.

            Mountain Hardwear's Sprite 1 could be a fine tent for trekking in Sikkim at those altitudes as long as your sleeping bag is warm enough. I am not sure how the weather is that time of the year but the Sprite 1 is definitely designed as a 3-Season tent. It can handle bad weather if pitched correctly but it will not provide to much warmth due to its mesh body panels. So, again, if your sleeping bag is anywhere from 15-0 degrees F you could probably be warm and happy! The other tent I would suggest is the Direkt 2 Tent that Mountain Hardwear launched new this spring. It is a very different kind of tent than the Sprite 1 but it is a phenomenally light weight mountain tent that would serve this purpose well!
