The Lightning was one of Sierra Designs first major successes in the ultralight category, winning a Backpacker "Editors' Choice" award in 2004. Freestanding, simple to pitch, the Lightning weighs a scant three pounds, 15 ounces. Clip-Locs and Swift Clips pull up to the x-pole design, meaning you can pitch the whole gig in seconds. With a nine-square-foot vestibule and plenty of mesh, it's comfortable, organized, and you won't get annoying condensation in the morning. DAC Featherlite NSL poles save weight without sacrificing strength, and the 40-denier fly sheds heavy rain for seasons to come.
