|Ultralight shelter for fair or cold weather. Why carry a 2 lb bivy when you can get this for 10 more ounces?|
|Not factory taped or seam-sealed...you get to do that yourself. The Epic fabric isn't really waterproof, but is very resistant...better for bugs, cold weather, or pm thunderstorms than daylong soaking rain. Although overhead clearance is good, the footprint inside is tight..just like the heavy-duty I-tent it is based on.|
|Keeping you dry on alpine climbs and keeping the condensation low inside while sleeping.|
|Not the best tent for ultra wet conditions|
|This is the best tent on the market for fast and light climbing. It is everything you need and nothing you don't. Seriously, you don't need to be weighed down with extra features such as a vestibule, two doors, roomy interrior, or double walls. you need the BD firstlight. |
There is a reason this tent can be seen in more alpine climbing videos than any other. go ahead. start watching them. The firstlight comes up again and again becasue it is so awesome. Check out Andy Kirkpatrick's website for an in depth review.
no other tent can match its bomb-proofness, light weight, ease of pitching, and narrow foot print. Not one.
|you have to seam seal it yourself (takes about 30 min and isn't that big of a deal)|
|Climbing light, fast and high!|
