May 3, 2019 - Boulder, CO – Heritage brand Sierra Designs has provided incredible design and functionality at attainable prices for decades, offering some of the best cost-to-weight outdoor gear in the industry. Recognized for its technical ingenuity and affordability, Sierra Designs is proud to accept the Gear of the Year Award from Outside Magazine for the new Clearwing 3, a budget-friendly yet lightweight tent that makes the outdoors accessible for everyone.

“It used to be that you really had to shell out for a tent that was both lightweight and reasonably roomy. Not anymore. Sierra Designs made this tent to compete with value-focused offers from big-box chains and online stores,” said an Outside tester. “The Clearwing is proof positive that space, weight, and price can play nice like never before.”


With pole geometry designed to pack small and maximize interior space, the Clearwing 3 offers a generous 46 ft² of interior space. The fully freestanding tent has two doors and two vestibules for easy access and maximum storage. Two hoop poles and a ridge pole create vertical sidewalls, providing plenty of interior space. Weighing in at a trail minimum of 5lbs and stored in a convenient burrito bag system, the Clearwing 3 received praise for having one the best cost-to-weight ratios on the market with an MSRP of $279.95.


“At Sierra Designs, we’re proud to be makers of functional, beautiful and attainable gear,” says Sophie Coffey, Brand Manager. “Our Clearwing 3 offers just that, giving more people access to quality gear and therefore, more time outside. We are honored to accept such a coveted award from Outside Magazine, a pillar in our industry.”

Sierra Designs will be displaying their new Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 collections at Summer Outdoor Retailer in Denver at booth #VO316-SL. For more information, contact
