Sierra Designs is an outdoors company creating beginner to mid-level outdoors gear. Founded in California circa 1965 by Bob Swanson and George Marks, they are now based out of Broomsfield, Colorado. Sierra is owned by Kellwood (Apparrel) Company, who also owns companies like Ames Taping Tools, Boston Market, and others. Their historical innovations include such inventions and designs such as:
The OG Flash Tent in 1983 – This was a two person tent that 40 years ago weighed 1800 grams (four pounds)! Swift Clips – The plastic hooks that keep a tent suspended to poles. They were the first to make a women’s specific bag in 1995. What? did women not exist before or something? Oh! It’s about size/proportions/fill zone density. Zipperless sleeping bags in 2014

Not a morning person? Keeping the kids on their nap schedule? The Alpenglow 4 tent is for anyone who prefers to rise without the shine on camping trips.

I am not the primary focus for these newly released tents. These are tents for individuals who are car camping and may use their tent a few times per season. Sierra does make tents in different fields of customer focus, like the High Route that I’m hype about.

It reminds me very much of the Dan Durston Tents that sell out quicker than free shots of Jim Beam at the detox unit. I would love to get my hands on this thing. If anyone has one, please let me know what you think of it.
