Black Diamond - Firstlight Tent

Availability: In stock

Stock #: I024-XX-WASA

A compact two-person, four-season tent built for weight-conscious climbers, the Black Diamond Firstlight is based on the I-Tent’s expedition-specific design with steep walls and a simple floor shape to optimize living space and increase headroom. For durability, all seams are double sewn and the stress points are reinforced. With two equal length DAC Featherlite poles that fit inside the tent with hook-and-loop wraps, it’s easy to set up—even from inside. For cross ventilation, both the small rear window and the door are covered with no-see-um mesh. The canopy is contructed with water resistant, breathable NanoShield fabric. For interior organization, the Firstlight has two interior mesh pockets.


  • 2-person design with single door entry and optional vestibule for gear storage
  • 2 internal DAC Featherlite poles
  • 2 interior mesh pockets
  • Zippered mesh panels at rear and door for ventilation
  • Proprietary NanoShield single-wall fabric and 2000 mm floor
  • Optional ground cloth available
  • Check with your Attorney General's office for flame retardancy requirements on tents in your state (or province).

After one season of use
This could have been a great tent .... except for one huge problem: the fabric. After 40 years of backcountry travels and the use of many many tents, from the original NF Mt Tent and SD Pyramid tents to single wall Bibbler, Integral Designs, Garuda tents, this is hands down the most fragile fabric I have ever seen. Buyer beware. You can pitch this tent in tight to some trees for wind protection and find more than a few holes in the fabric the next day. One and done as they say. I'm still looking for a light but strong alpine tent that doesn't break the bank. Review by justmeotw / (Posted on 1/20/2013)
