        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.
