Comments about BIG AGNES Flying Diamond 6 Tent:

Me, my wife, and our 3 year old like to go car camping and were looking for a tent to replace a leaky, half fly, cheap tent that was bought at a big box store and would constintly break the fiberglass poles. I would call this tent a 4+2 person tent as there is a main 4 person dome with an attached 2 person tent that has a zip down divider between the two. Also, I would call this a 3+ season tent, though I haven't taken it out in the winter yet. It is easy to set up with mesh sleeves, quality aluminum poles and snap fit ends that fit into grommets in webbing on the tent. The full rain fly is easy to throw on as it buckles to the tent body and can be cinched down with webbing. The fly has shed copuious amounts of rain through the three seasons we've had it. Only one time did it soak through the bottom of the tent, but that was due to ponding water on the site and a hard time staking the fly out due to rocky conditions. It has a nice large vestibule on the main dome's end, but the exit on the +2 person end doesn't have one and could use one. On warm days, it can get stuffy in the tent due to it's darker color and lack of mesh vents on the body. There were some minor quality issues as there was a missing fitting on a door tie and a grommet for holding the poles popped out of the webbing on the tent body, but nothing so far to ruin the integrety of the tent.

One thing of note: I don't know if it's been fixed our purchace or not, but the directions on the tent say to use the yellow ended pole on the vestibule and the orange ended pole over the +2 person end of the tent. This caused the fly to not sit on the tent properly as the yellow ended pole is longer and there was too much of a gap between the fly and the ground on the vestibule, while fly on the +2 end sagged. Switching them around fixed the problem and made more sense anyway as the webbing on the front of the tent is orange to denote it as the front of the tent.

      Big Agnes advertises this tent as 4-season, it is NOT. The vents on the rain fly cannot be closed. Wind and rain are easily swept inside this tent.

        Comments about BIG AGNES Flying Diamond 6 Tent:

        Great tent, easy set up and awesome customer service. The tent is super easy to assemble and the bag which holds it has very easy to understand instructions (everything is color coded). Took under 15 minutes to put up by myself. Bag is huge and unlike most tent bags easily accommodates everything. After set up time to enjoy the tent. It's huge and has two rooms separated by a zippered divider great for families like us who have a dog. The tent will easily accommodate a large dog and it's den (if needed), a baby's play-yard, and mom and dad's sleeping bags and gear. Lots of overhead pockets for storage too. Tent is rock solid in wind and rain and absolutely no leaks or mosquitos, even no seams. Many guy line points to tie out fly. Fly is also very easy to attach and works super well with built-in window latches which provide for even more air movement (there's alot anyway). Big Agnes customer service is best in the business with quick, polite and knowledgeable answers and help (had a couple of pre-order questions and concerns). Overall, the best value in a family tent I could imagine and would highly recommend this tent. You get what you pay for and I imagine that this tent will last us a good 16 years with proper care.
