This tent uses a distinctive shape to deliver a lightweight, compact tent that opens up so you can take in the views. This is a fantastic tent for combining weight, size, ease of use and stand out appeal.
Sierra Designs says:
The High Side’s pre-bent poles and distinct build provide a maximum amount of space and a minimum amount of weight. 12” pole sections help with efficient packing, and once set up, just extend the awning and you’ll be living large.

Sierra Design's High Side 2 is a fantastic two person tent with an interesting design that keeps the weight down, has a fantastic packsize and results in a versatile shelter. The pole design creates a good amount of internal space and sets up the most interesting aspect of this tent, the high side. The outer door can be set up in a number of different ways to allow you to make the most of things. It can be rolled up to allow you to take in the view, it can extended out with poles to act like an awning providing a large sheltered space or it can be kept low and tight to keep the weather out.
The low profile shape is really good for windy conditions and the short pole sections are ideal for creating a small packsize for bikepackers and space conscious trekkers. There is a good amount of space for two people laid in the tent and the two entrances/vestibules make access easy and provide a lot of additional space. The design is the real standout feature but the combination of low weight, small packsize and exceptional value make this a fantastic tent overall.
