Description: Big Agnes Big House 4 Tent

Every so often a line of tents achieves cult-like status, and Big House tents fit that bill. Whether you are trying to keep your loved ones in or the elements out, a Big House is big enough for rainy afternoon card games with the family or road trippin’ mountain bikers who like to be able to stand up in their shelter to change. Optional accessory vestibules can convert these base camping tents from a simple structure to a cavernous escape from the sun or howling wind.

This is exactly what I want in a car camping tent.
I bought this tent for car camping and took it out for the first time this weekend. I couldn't be happier. It's crazy easy to set up, and I had all the room I could want for myself, my boyfriend, a large dog, and gear. We got rained on for about an hour each night, and everything stayed totally dry inside the tent.

Overall, I'm stoked on the purchase, and I'd recommend to anyone looking for a solid car camping set up.

Great Tent Overall
This is a great tent overall but I was a little dissapointed in the fact that it is advertised as a two door tent but the second door does not have a zipper along the bottom so it is more of a vent than an actual door. I am not sure why this was skimped on because it really is a dissapointing feature on an overall fantastic product.

Wanted to REALLY love it...
I was so excited to get this tent. I looked forward to the extra space and tall ceiling so we can stand up inside. And these aspects my husband and I did appreciate when we used it at Lassen. But, we noticed right away that the front door zippers were built weird. The way the 2 zippers had to meet at the bottom corner at a 90° angle left a very tiny opening. No matter how we tried to zip it close, there is this tiny space, enough for maybe very tiny bugs to crawl through. It made us very paranoid each time we opened and closed. We had to check it every time to make sure the zippers were as close as possible. The back door was no problem because the zippers were the traditional curved zippers that close very well. On our next night, I noticed a small spider hanging in the air near my sleeping bag and another spider crawling by my bag. I thought it curious bc my husband and I are meticulous about removing bugs on our bodies before entering and closing the tent doors quickly when we enter to prevent bugs from getting in. Of course, we understand, bugs will still get in despite how hard we try. We are outdoors, after all. The teeny hole from the front door perhaps? In the morning, we looked at the mesh ceiling and noticed 2 sets of small holes, one set on each side. I guess that might have been how those tiny spiders and a few other bugs got inside our tent. I taped up the holes with first aid tape and no more bugs! I also noticed a pull tie was frayed. I was disappointed that for a new tent, it was in this condition. Other than that, we did enjoy the nice welcome mat, the tall ceiling, mesh pockets, extra space, and easy set up (it does require 2 people). Besides quality of the materials, at least for our tent, and the weird setup of the front door zippers, it's a nice tent overall. When we returned, we sent it in to get it repaired. BA was nice to give us a prepaid return label since we had just purchased it. Waiting now for it to get fixed...

Good tent!
Have done three trips now with wind to 40mph and the tent was bomber. It was also dry in moderate rain, It is roomy with good inside clip points and is easy to set up for its size. The only downside is the main zipper on the front entryway. I would much prefer a single zipper track that zips from top left around to the bottom left, rather than the zipper just on the bottom and the zipper that runs top left to bottom right (meeting the other zipper but on a separate zipper chain, which always seems to get stuck on the nyon flap.

The best tent I've had in 30 years of camping
So very easy to setup! Also kept us dry in the unexpected rain. I love the welcome mat. Keeps you from tracking in dirt and makes it easy to clean before packing up.

Best tent I've ever owned.
This is the best tent I've ever owned, period. I was skeptical to spend more than 3x what I've ever spent on a tent before, but just from the initial setup and check for quality, you can tell this tent goes above and beyond anything I've ever seen before. I feel that with proper care / uv protection, this tent will survive for years and years of use, possibly decades depending on your use level.

Great tent for the price
Great car camping tent, says for 4 people, but I dont see any way that 4 people with Gear in a car camping scenario could fit in this tent, 2-3 comfortably, 4 is pushing it.
