Based on the success of their HyperLight line, SD moves to hybrid tents with an easier to pitch external frame and dual vestibules and doors. The Bakus come in solo, two and three person versions. They are intended to compliment the Hyperlight and Lightening series and round out what SD calls their "ultralight offering."
The Sierra Designs Baku 2 is a hybrid single wall/double wall construction. It has two doors and two vestibules. The fixed vestibules cover mesh stash doors, while the ends of the tent body are single-walled siliconized 40 denier nylon, allowing users to pitch the tent as one piece for faster setup, quieter living and weatherproof construction.
