      Comments about BIG AGNES Seedhouse SL2 Tent:

      Great tent. Plenty of room for 1, just enough for 2 with minimal gear inside. It sets up in 5 minutes once you do it a couple of times. Be sure to stake it out as it gives much more room. Fast Fly option is also a plus if you want to travel without the mesh tent part. Has reflective markings that aid in setting it up at night. Very compact when rolled up in the bag and fits in the pack easily.

        This is a great tent! Super easy to setup. A bit snug depending on your size with two people but I can't complain, I knew what the size was when I bought it. For one person it is really nice. Real easy to setup and break down. Doesn't get much lighter for the price.

          The tent is awesome for the weight. Snug for two avg. height people, but not unreasonable. The vestibule can accommodate boots/clothing for two or one large backpack. If you need the fly for rainy weather, make sure you guy out the long sides to keep them off the mesh tent wall.

            I just tried this Tent for the weekend at woodland valley. This tent is very easy to setup. Sl2 is great for one person with the pack inside. For 2 people it's tight, But over all this tent is great.

            The fly on this wonderful tent needs to be redesigned to allow for cross-ventilation. Otherwise, I am very happy with it.

              Amazing product. Big Agnes isn't a very big brand and you probably haven't herd of them, but they make some amazing gear. This is one of the lightest 2 person tents out there. It is very roomy, comfortable, lightweight, durable, compactable, and keeps out all of the bugs.

                Practically sets itself up. Very Lightweight for freestanding tent. Sturdy. Good contruction. Nice features like flurescent lines. Dry and comfy in heavy rains. Good construction. Easy to break down and pack up. Packs well. Fairly compact.
                A small two man tent. But just barely enough room for two medium sized men.

                Performed well on long trips on the AT.
                Like it a lot.

                  Amazing, A++++ doesn't get any better than this lightest, toughest, sturdiest, eco-friendliest, and best tent you will find. It even comes for a resonable price. Do not look over this product.

                  Comments about BIG AGNES Seedhouse SL2 Tent:

                  Big Agnes makes awesome tents. I own the Fly Creek UL2 and ordered the Seedhouse SL2 because I wanted a freestanding tent style, and the Seedhouse is it. However, be aware that the tent you will receive is not exactly the same as the tent in the picture, nor is it the same as on the Big Agnes website. The tent I received has totally different pole hubs, it does not have the pocket above the door, and it has two less pole hooks than shown in the photo. I called Big Agnes and asked them about this tent, and they said it was the newest model, but the pictures had not been updated. I don't like the new pole hubs because they appear to be plastic instead of aluminum, and are more bulbous than the ones in the picture. I also wanted the small pocket above the door for flashlight and glasses, and it's missing from this model. Also, I wanted the extra pole hangers to keep the door more evenly supported. I sent the tent to Big Agnes and they replaced it with the one in the picture. The customer support at Big Agnes is awesome!
                  That said, I love this tent. I bought it to use as a solo tent, because I can't imagine it being large enough for two. Also, if you're much over 6 feet tall, it might feel a little short by the time you get your sleeping gear arranged.
                  I highly recommend this as a light weight 3-season tent for one person.
