Alpha 3 Convertible 3/4 Season

The Alpha 3 convertible tent adds or subtracts tent poles and tent-body panels to adapt to three- or four-season conditions. These tents are great for the shoulder-season.

The Alpha adds panels on the tent's doors and beefy tent-pole reinforcements to transform it to a four-season tent when conditions demand.

Another Home Run
Another Home Run by Sierra Designs! They do the little things that you expect a high end manufacturer to do.

We had it out for the first time 12 deg, very comfortable, easy to set up. You could cram 3 people in it in the winter season but it would be real tight. I would highly recommend it for 4 season use, breaths real well when the rain fly is guy lined out and off of the mesh.

Worth the pack weight especially when you have a team of 3 or 4 people.
