Sierra Designs Vapor Light 1 Tent
The Sierra Designs Vapor Light 1 Tent is in a word, awesome. On an extended ride, every inch counts, and since the compact Vapor Light packs to just 19 inches by 4 inches and weighs only 2 lbs., 14 ounces, it managed to easily fit into my Vision's anemic saddle bag—yet somehow offered plenty of room for my 6 ft. 2 in. frame. It uses a "fin" design for a solo, freestanding shelter, and also packs a rain-fly for those wet nights. The interior is way roomy but make no mistake, it's made for one person only. There's also a front vestibule to keep your gear out of the rain while you wait out a storm. On the down side, the vestibule is pretty small, but it was big enough for my boots and helmet.
