    The Sierra Designs Flash 3 tent sets up in a matter of seconds with new ExoFusion technology. This setup combines an external pitch with an integrated fly to speed setup and increase interior space.

    • ExoFusion shelters utilize an external frame combined with hybrid single and double wall panels; since there's no separate fly to fuss with, the setup is easy and quick
    • Integration of the rainfly means the tent is protected during setup; the inner body of the tent won't get soaked since there's no separate rainfly to attach
    • Well-ventilated comfort: the exterior skeleton/hybrid wall construction allows effective vent placement and airflow planning that isn't possible with traditional construction
    • Less material saves weight: exterior skeleton/hybrid wall construction also allows double walls where necessary and single walls otherwise
    • D-shape doors on the Sierra Designs Flash 3 tent provide roomy access; 2 vestibules provide separate storage areas
    • Light yet strong, DAC Featherlite® NSL poles are anodized without the use of harmful acids
    • Hub/pole design reduces the possibility of pitching errors and aids in the speed of the pitch
    • Jake's Feet™ corner anchor system locks poles in place during setup and aids in tensioning out the floor
    • Taped rainfly seams and a seam-sealed floor offer weatherproof protection
    • Reflective door trim and guyouts aid nighttime visibility of tent
    • Mesh windows have closeable flaps to prevent weather from creeping in
    • Includes stuff sacks, guylines, tent stakes, user guide and setup instructions

    Sierra Designs Flash 3 Tent is rated 2.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent I bought this tent for summer hiking in the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho. Conditions are typically dry with occasional thunder storms. On the first night out my and my two boys were caught in a hail storm at Sawtooth Lake. I have to admit that I was worried that the tent was going to have issues, but it held up great. I would definitely this tent. It's become my go to tent for summer use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK in the summer I just bought the Flash 2, but they look the same, and my key issue remains: this is a 3-season tent only for early-summer, mid-summer, and late summer! We set up a fly to divert wind, collapsed the vestibules to reduce the flow-through, and bought sleeping bag liners for nights in the 20s. It is also quite small inside-I am 6-foot-zero, and with my toes touching the sloped wall, I had less than a foot of space between my head and the opposite wall. Set up and stability are good. I really wanted to like my Flash 2, but if you want a light-weight tent you have better options, and if you want a 3-season tent you want something else.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Tent The most poorly designed tent I have seen in 40 years of tent camping. Has no walls and a rainfly that allows rain to poor in when the wind is blowing. Idiotic and over engineered gizmos that replace grommets for the poles. Do not go near this tent.
