little bit small
Built for 3, but not me.
This tent packs up tiny & is very lightweight but built with solid material. The stakes were very impressive, feather-light, but seem quite durable. The setup was a breeze, and the guylines were all included, which is a plus.
I am going from an older (8 years +) Marmot Tungsten 3P, so my perspective is relative to this tent. I was not too fond of this tent almost immediately after setting it up. The poles' 'T' structure is vastly different from a traditional dome, particularly from the inside. The brow pole doesn't offer much for pushing out the tent walls. I understand entirely the shaving of weight reasoning for this design, but I was not prepared for such a tapered, narrow space inside. The vestibules are tiny, and tapering inside walls are awful. One cannot sit up without hunching over, and still, some part of the tent touches you. My buddy and I would touch each other and the side walls within, yet this tent is rated for 3. I have no idea how three average-sized humans sleep side by side here. I see how it is depicted in the picture, but this is unrealistic. I was so hopeful, but this tent felt terrible to me. I will say I'd rather carry extra weight than the cool ultralight gear to provide the comfort I enjoy at camp. If Big Agnes added prebent poles near the bottom or an extra clip, it would possibly help pull the tent walls out further. This is a quality tent, really thoughtfully designed, but wasn't built for my needs or wants. Oh, and it goes without saying, these lightweight tents REQUIRE a footprint, so make sure you consider this when pricing your options.
