With its super-lightweight Big Agnes 4 person tents, you can pack light and go for longer camping trips. You will no longer need to worry about the tent getting ruined due to heavy winds or your gear getting too hot. The lightweight structure means that you don't need extra space to store your equipment. Plus, all the seams are taped to ensure watertight protection from the elements.
There are many benefits to using the super-lightweight Big Agnes 4 person tent. For one, it offers super-sizing, with plenty of room for long-distance hikers and backpackers. It will keep your gear secure and comfortable, even on rough terrain. In addition, the fly is very durable and will stand up against any type of weather. Because the fly is attached to the tent, it won't move or slide around when you're hiking through brush or crawling through the dirt. Even wind and rain won't be a problem since the material is waterproof and will keep your gear and yourself dry.
Since the tent is lightweight and compact, it is also very easy to transport and set up. It is a quick setup, and the instructions included will walk you through the process in no time. Because it is quite a bit smaller than the average Big Agnes big house 4 person tent, it also weighs much less than most. This means that you can pack more into it, making this the perfect option for group hikers or long-distance backpackers.
Unlike most other tent models, the Big Agnes has great support. There are two large floor spaces - a sealed pocket on the bottom and a mesh "Drylock Box" over the door. The tent is sealed against the wind, rain, and extreme weather conditions with a triple-layer seam and Dura-Lite external seams. This is important as most trips out on the trail will have some combination of rain, wind, and cold. Having a tent that is strong and durable will make the trip much more enjoyable, as well as keeping your gear dry from the elements.
There is one minor point - there is a drop-down footrest in the front. If you lean over to rest, the weight of your body can cause the tent to move slightly. If you are going to use the tub floor, however, you are better off just using the drop-down footrest. The rest of the tent is composed of a very durable nylon/spandex combination, and well-cushioned mesh pockets and panels. The tub floor does have some flex, so it does make the tent a bit unstable, but this is an uncommon occurrence in this model.
Another great feature of the Big Agnes tent is the large gear loft. The mesh pockets keep all your important gear stowed away neatly and securely. Some models have zippers on the side or front of the large gear loft. I like that since it is easily accessible to everyone, especially when someone is heading out in bad weather. Most other tents are difficult for even one person to access!
The Big Agnes 4 person tent is also extremely lightweight. Even though it is a 4 person tent, it weighs less than 20 pounds. Because of this, it can easily be stowed away and carried on a backpack while hiking or hunting (if that's what you plan to do). Most other lightweight car camping tents are too bulky and heavy to carry on your back, which makes them very hard to transport and even harder to put together for car camping.
If you are looking for a lightweight, easily stored, stable tent, then the Big Agnes 4 person tent is definitely for you. It is just what you are looking for if you are looking for the maximum amount of storage options and functionality for your tent. If you are going to spend most of your time in the outdoors, then this might just be the tent for you. If you plan on doing some hiking and hunting, but only do a couple of nights at home, then the Big Agnes 4 person tent may not be enough for your family.
