Sierra Designs Mountain Meteor 3
( $649.95, sierradesigns.com)
3P/4S, 13 lbs., 54sf, Vestibule 23.5 sq ft
A good, roomy dome tent. A true three person with a wonderfully livable interior space, something much appreciated when stuck in it for days on end. A little heaver and a little roomier than other 3Ps, but not a deal breaker for kayakers. Poles have a hub and spoke arrangement with bungee clips (effective but a little tedious, better with practice) for the tent body, making for a fairly quick set up time. Poled vents in fly help out with air movement . Jakes Corners give added structural support to tent if needed. Tent body is a benign white with dark bathtub floor but the fly reminds me of a UCLA cheerleader's outfit in garish blue and gold.
