Roomy and light with plenty of head space, the Sierra Designs Clearwing 3 tent is a dreamy place to call it a day

A cramped tent can put a squeeze on an overnight outdoor adventure. With nearly vertical sidewalls the Sierra Designs Clearwing 3 tent reaches 46 inches from the floor to create the kind of head space that’s often lacking in the interior of a lightweight backpacking tent. At ground level, the tent’s spacious floor (93” x 71”) is a dream for three sleepers.

The steep-walled tent assembles with three aluminum poles and is fully freestanding. As a bonus, the hoop poles over the two doors create vertical sidewalls. The tent includes six guy out loops, four guylines and 10 stakes to anchor the tent in strong winds. Two vestibules and a full-coverage rainfly extend the protected coverage area to 9.9 square feet, which provides the extra room you need for easy access to footwear and other items stored just outside the tent. Two fly vents, one above each door, provide additional tent ventilation when needed.

The body of the tent is constructed of 15D Nylon No-See-Um Mesh and the floor and full-coverage fly of 68D 190T Polyester Taffeta. The entire tent, including the poles and stakes, weighs 5 lbs 3 oz, and packs small enough to fit into its burrito bag.
