Grerat Family Tent

We are a family of four and we also bought the footprint and vestibule. The full fly (like on backpacking tents) makes the difference. This allowed for good ventilation with the fly all the way down the three sides. Four Coleman Twin Skinny Air Beds fit with a little room to spare on the sides of the beds (for car camping). We backpacked 1 mile into our campsite being that it weighs 14lbs just to see if we could and our first time setting it up was quick and easy. We used our regular backpacking gear so weight between the four of us was about 20% of our body weight so we could use this on extended trips. We slept great and we had plenty of room.
Bob at Campmor on 10/10/2013

Awesome size, easy set-up!

We set it up in the front yard. It was very easy with 2 people, but one person could do it in less than 10 minutes. It takes a little longer to attach the optional vestibule, but the added space is really great! The footprint seems a little too big for the tent. Maybe we didn't have the tent stretched enough, but it seemed set up correctly and the footprint was just too big to use the grommet holes with the tent poles. Oh well, better too big than too small. I have the Hager House 3 and it has been used in the rain multiple times with no leaks. We love Big Agnes tents.
