Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable tent Stayed in the desert recently through a crazy wind storm. Tent was almost completely horizontal, but lasted through the night undamaged. Great tent for two people + equipment. Super easy to assemble/disassemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tent I wanted a cheaper BA 3 person to have the room when doing weekend trips with wife and dogs. Solid tent, not the lightest option for backpacking but a good balance of value and construction. Cant go wrong with any big agnes tents in my experience, they use the best materials.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof This tent bottom is not waterproof. I read a lot of good reviews of this tent but was disappointed with my experience with it. The floor has only 1500mm PU coating, which isn't enough for waterproofing a tent floor when weight is on it. The fly does fine, even in heavy rain, but water seeped through the bottom when I camped with even a bit of dew on the ground. I had issues with and without the ground sheet and BA even sent me a new tent body, which performed equally badly. I'm very disappointed that this has become a car-camping tent that has to be paired with a heavy tarp for the bottom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from floor size inside measures actual 63 x 84 measured flat before setup; at corners its 68 x 89" set up perfectly tight; inside measurement 63 x 84" Ive seen this listed as 73 x 90" online, but the measurement is missing on BA site. another point is that there is a long seam in the floor, not sure why tent companies can't come up with a way to manufacture the fabric longer than 55".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE TENT- ROOMY FOR 2 PLUS GEAR HAD A TERRIBLE STORM DURING THE NIGHT- THIS TENT WAS AWESOME. We were nice and dry and quite comfortable. The tent is big enough for 2 with lots of gear but 3 can fit in it without gear. Very compact and light so great for hiking too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light an water tight Actually not the lightest but you cannot beat it for the price. You have to factor in that the footprint comes with it. Most others do not include them. Tons of space inside and quick to set up. Camped in steady rain for over 8 hours not a drop inside not even condensation. The large wall gear loft is kind of weird have not yet figured out the correct way to set up. Overall great tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tent I bought this to take my girlfriend for her first ever camping trip. We had room to store the packs under the fly outside the tent, and so had plenty of room for two inside. The overhead pockets are great, the setup and fly were intuitive and well-designed. I have no complaints!

One reviewer is complaining about rain coming in through the floor. Is this truly an issu?

Asked by: lynn
Hey, Lynn! We actually reached out to our friends at Big Agnes to get the answer to your question. They said this tent is considered waterproof. As long as the tent is staked out and guyed out properly, the coating on the tent floor fabric should be sufficient to keep water from seeping in. They said they haven't encountered this issue at all with this tent, and encourage customers to make sure they know how to use the tent properly to avoid water getting in. I hope this helps!
