The Firstlight is my go-to tent for backpacking for 1-2 people -- super durable, super lightweight, and compact enough to fit on even the smallest campsite. Some people complain about the length, but I am happy to save the extra weight spent by anything other than a perfect fit.
Once properly seam-sealed (it took me about 4 hours), it holds up to any weather I've thrown at it: rain, snow, and wind. Just toss it in the pack and go without worrying if it's excessive or not going to endure the elements. Highly recommended!
Easy to set up
Leaks like crazy. The fabric is not waterproof at all! (Seam sealing and putting the tent in the dryer as recommended by BD doesn't help.)
Too short. I'm 5'8 (172 cm) tall, and either my head or my sleeping bag at my feet touch the ends of the tent.
The wire stiffeners on the vents are flawed. They get pushed closed by wind.
The interior pockets are so low, your stuff touches the floor (which is wet if it's raining.)
Black Diamond told me it's normal for the tent to leak!
I use it for a one-person tent and find it necessary to sleep diagonally in it so I pitch it with that in mind. It is plenty roomy for all my gear. One thing though, since it is ultralight you will need to treat it with care and always, always use a ground cloth with it. There are many complaints on websites about problems with the floor when it is used without a ground cloth. Following these rules, mine is still as good as new.
Another observation about this tent is that you cannot leave the door unzipped if you leave camp with the tent set up unless you know it is not going to rain. In some places I go this is a real drawback since, for example in Grand Teton Park which is home to an overwhelming number of marmots. If the door is not open they will chew a hole in the tent to get in. A vestibule is available for this tent which solves the problem but it is too heavy for me to want to carry it most of the time. In which case, I take the tent down and hang my full pack in a tree if I am going on a day hike away from camp.
All this being said, I love the tent. It is my go-to tent for every time I want to sleep solo. There is no other tent I have seen that is even close.
