Sd Tan/Sd Blue

This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • Hybrid double/single wall reduces weight and provides quick, dry setup, even in the rain; freestanding design can be pitched anywhere, no matter how impenetrable the surface
  • Symmetric dome shape allows for both head-to-head and head-to-toe sleeping configurations; high ceiling accommodates thicker mattresses with plenty of headroom
  • Immense interior space allows occupants to sit at either end with room in between for a comfortable game of cards
  • The Sierra Designs Flash 3 Tent features 2 drop doors that are uncommonly wide and large enough for 2 people to sit side by side
  • DAC Pressfit® poles feature a securely fixed, pressed-in ferrule, ensuring the poles will remain strong and reliable
  • 15 in. integrated awning poles maximize the door openings and drip lines without the extra weight of an additional support pole
  • 2 gear closets store gear away from the door; gear closets help keep gear dry in a rainstorm, whether closed or left open for additional venting
