An alpine two-person tent, featuring a space-efficient design with NanoShield fabric for the weight minimalist. Learn More


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 constructed with water resistant, breathable NanoShield fabric. For interior organization, the FirstLight has two interior mesh pockets.

  • Two-person design with single door entry and optional vestibule for gear storage
  • Two internal DAC Featherlite® poles
  • Two interior mesh pockets
  • Zippered mesh panels at rear and door for ventilation
  • Proprietary NanoShield™ single-wall fabric and 70D poly floor in Carbon color way
  • Sil-Net seam sealer required (one tube included, additional tubes sold separately)
  • Optional ground cloth available 
  • Comes with repair tube for tent poles

FirstLight 2P Tent is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Condensation Special but Light. Bought and used this tent in some isolated west coast alpine on Vancouver Island. It produced so much condensation that I have to question the design materials. Based upon the older Bibler goretex these tents were bombproof and dry. This one rained on me in spite of my leaving the outside flap open and only the mosquito net closed (and the other vent open as well). Not too pleased. I think you have to splash out more and get the Fitzroy version. Luckily the weather was warm during the daytime and dryed everything out until the next night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent, did the job Bought this tent a few weeks before heading to Wind River and Cirque of the Towers. Packs small and light, and was easy to set up and had plenty of room for two. Everything needed in a tent to keep my load light without giving up anything. Wish it came with the seams sealed, but I knew that going in and it wasn't that difficult or time consuming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to Alpine Shelter Not sure there is much competition on the market for this tent. It seems to be what everyone else was using in Patagonia as their bivi and alpine shelter. Its super light and packable, simple yet strong. A stiff side breeze can semi-flatten the tent, so be careful how you set it up. Perhaps the guy-points could be higher, or make them more distributed across a 6" seam, instead of a small 2". Im glad to see that they started taping the seams in the beefed up tent corners. I do wish they would sell you the tent seam-sealed, not sure why that cant be done. Maybe it shaves off $50, and if so, it could be an option in the future??
