From Basecamp to Backcountry: Sierra Designs Debuts New Tents
June 7, 2019
Technically innovative gear perfect for pushing the limits
June 7, 2019 – Boulder, CO- After more than 50 years of creating beautiful, functional and attainable equipment, Sierra Designs knows quality gear and affordability don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Staying true to their legacy, the heritage brand introduces a range of new and highly versatile tents to their S20 collection.
“Both our Pushing the Limits and Pack ‘n Go tent collections get significant updates for 2020,” says Andrew Day, VP/GM of Sierra Designs. “Designed for families, car campers and base campers, we introduce the Nomad, a roomy and full-featured 4/6 tent. Taking cues from the popular Meteor 2/3, we shaved 10oz off the 2-person model to debut the Meteor-Lite, adding to our extensive collection of competitive cost-to-weight gear.”
Based on retailer demand, Sierra Designs reintroduces a large family tent to their S20 Pack ‘n Go collection. With a generous footprint, near standing peak height and pockets galore, the new Nomad 4/6 person tent is the answer to any adventure that isn’t confined to a backpack. Two doors and two vestibules offer plenty of protection and storage for gear, while the integrated window allows for outdoor viewing when storms roll in. Simple and strong, the Nomad’s 3 pole set up provides a generous 84.4ft2 of interior space and a peak height of 6 feet, making it the ideal basecamp for your next adventure. MSRP: $424.00/4 person, $474.00/6 person
