Review: Sierra Designs Tiros Guide CD [ 2-man, 4-season Tent ]
Product Description
Larger than the Tiros Assault, the Tiros Guide sleeps two or three people (maybe more in really bad weather) and makes the ultimate expedition tent. The freestanding Tiros Guide has an efficient rectangular footprint and incredibly stable architecture. Its storm worthiness is further enhanced by seven Clip-Locs, 12 Interlocs and 16 External Guy points. The reversible fly can position the vestibule over the front or rear doors, and is blue and gold for high visibility in low light.

Retail: $479

Summary:
Great tent. This tent has been completly buried on Baker several times.NO PROBLEM! A friend of mine who is an expert gear basher borrowed it and then purchased one.Some people say they have ventilation problems with this tent I haven't seen it.I will admit that most of the time it is pitched in breezy sites.This tent is light, strong, and has a small footprint perfect for mountainering.

Summary:
I really think that this is a great tent. It has taken me everywhere, and it's bomb proof. It sheads snow great and is very good in high winds. The only draw back is that the fly is not taped and you must seal it yourself. Also they no longer make the footprints for this tent so you must either make your own or use a tarp. Overall I think that this is the best tent that I have ever slept in.

I also owned a North Face Corielos Tent I'm not sure the correct spelling. Anyways this tent sucks. It has no vestibule and it isn't very waterproof. It is only good for good weather summer camping in a dry area. It is also really light.

Summary:
this tent is one of the best i have used. i have recently had the oppurtunity to sample the Northface expedition 25, the Walrus Rapeed and the Tiros Guide. of the three, the tiros was the easiest to set up in a pinch. i am a climber and i feel one of the most important features in a shelter is the quick set up. the northface was nice and bomb proof, but it took several minutes to erect in high wind. the walrus was easier, but not too roomy once you, your partner and gear is inside. above all the tiros overcame these obstacles. Great job Sierra Designs

Summary:
Excellent tent for what it is designed for - winter camping. It is a decent weight for what you get - a super sturdy, bomber tent. Works great for winter camping, decent for spring/fall camping, but I wouldn't recommend it for summer, it just doesn't have enough venting. Overall - a great tent for what it is designed for.
