The Black Diamond Mega Light is an exceptional 3-4 season silnylon pyramid shelter. It has an excellent floor area to weight ratio, sleeps four adults, and comes standard with a lightweight carbon fiber center pole and trekking pole adapter. With a bathtub floor and bug netting for added protection, the Mega Bug turns the Mega Light into a protective, fully functional tent.
The Black Diamond Mega Bug, an optional bug liner for the Mega Light, turns this shelter into a double walled tent. However, the Mega Bug uses heavier weight fabrics and more than doubles the carry weight of the shelter. Frankly, it is overkill, and could be reduced to a simple mesh skirt and floor. For these reasons, the Mega Bug receives an Average rating. Bathtub floor and bug netting for added protection with the Mega Light.
Here at Black Diamond it's all about climbing and skiing. We share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow and these experiences push us to make the best gear possible for our worldwide family of climbers and skiers.
What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has now grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Black Diamond is a company that's not just for rock climbers and skiers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live, their values and goals, past, present and future. Since 1957, our innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas. This is partly the result of dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. It's also a product of the fact that each of us are climbers and skiers ourselves.
We're a company of users. It's who we are. We're the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists. Because of this, the creation of Black Diamond is a process that will never end. The company today is more committed than ever, thanks to the many people here in the U.S., at Black Diamond Europe and at Black Diamond Asia whose limitless energy and hands-on involvement have created a promising future for all climbers and skiers worldwide.
