Great tent, easy setup and plenty of room, for two people. Not what I would consider a three person tent unless your very thin or very "close".
Setup at the house before we w…

I bought this tent becouse it weighs less than almost any 1 person tent and is almost big enough for 2 people. You would have to like to cuddle or be small to fit 2 in comfort…

Easy to setup alone. The instructions are very easy to follow. The pockets that line the inside of the tent are excellent. Can easily fit 8 people sitting and 6 sleeping. The…

I lived in this tent in a tropical rainforest for 4 months while doing surveys. It's very spacious, pretty durable, and unbelievably cheery. There is a wonderful sun/moon roof…

This is a great tent. Fast setup and tear-down, well made, very light. Ventilation is good, without letting in the wind. No condensation issues. I have the footprint too which…

The wife and I took our new Bighouse 4 tent up in the Montana hills around 7500' to test ride our new Big Agnes. Setting up was a breeze and with the attached vestibule we wer…

What can I say? Love this tent. My family of four, plus two 100+ lb dogs have plenty of room in this tent. I'm 5'9, and can stand up straight in the Big House 4. Lots of st…

We have had this tent for 4 years and love it! It is the lightest and most durable backpacking tent we have ever had. The setup is a synch, so when you roll into camp after…

Excellent 2 man tent, unless you are bringing two midgets with you I don't know how in the hell a third person would fit (in there defense they are just following industry sta…

We got the UL-3 and the UL-4 to compare, in the hopes that we could size down- and weight down.
Sadly- the manufacture's estimation of proportion did not match our own.
- diane, 08/14/13
Absolutely love how light this tent is for a "4 person tent". But I'm much more inclined to call it a 3 person tent unless you all weigh less than 130 lbs. then you might get…

The Jack Rabbit SL3 is very similar to the Copper Spur UL3, with some important differences. Positive: the doors on the JR3 open to the side, rather than rolling down, which h…

Big Agnes Tents
Big Agnes tents are the real deal. Seriously, whatever kind of tent-related thing you're getting yourself into, Big Agnes is going to have a tent for your activity. That last sentence was weird. Sorry about it. Whether you need an ultralight backpacking tent or a family size tent for car camping, check out Big Agnes.
Big Agnes backpacking tents are available in a few different styles and in sizes to sleep up to 4. Check out the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL Tent, which is available in 1 person, 2 person, or 4 person styles. The 4 person Fly Creek has a trail weight of only 4 lb 1 oz, but still has room enough to sleep everyone on the trip. There's also the Big Agnes Jack Rabbit SL: basically the ultimate 3 season superlight backpacking tent. It's got the DAC Featherlite NSL pole system with press fit connectors and lightweight hubs, it's got lightweight nylon and polyester mesh wall construction, it's got a silicone treated nylon rip-stop floor. It's got it all, you guys.
If it's a base camp tent you need, check out the popular Big Agnes Big House. The Big House comes in 4 person and 6 person versions, provides a ton of headroom, and is packed with premium features. For four-season versatility in a base camp tent, check out the Big Agnes Flying Diamond. This bomber tent is available in a 4 person, 6 person, or 8 person version for plenty of room, plus roomy vestibules stow all the gear you need at base camp.
There are really so many more Big Agnes tents that I can't tell you about here. So check them out for yourself. Of course, there's a footprint available for most tents to help preserve the life of the tent floor. Big Agnes even makes a sweet cabin tent, the Red Dirt, which makes me think of Ernest Hemingway. I have no idea why, but I had to Google pictures of safari hats for a while.
