Summary: Favorable Reviews

Double door and vestibules are what I am looking for in a tent, and that's what this tent gave me. I also love that they gave you two closure options for the doors. Absolutely bomb proof! Overall construction is solid.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

I wish they had separate the closure options of the door since its a double setup. They could have included the footprint for this one. That would attract more buyers. It takes around 15 minutes to set up.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Battle Mountain 2 has one window and two doors and a peak center height of 3' 6 which is a little bit smaller than the average height of the 189 other 2 person tents we have looked at. With 31 square feet of room inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 2-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, another camper all through the 4-seasons this tent is suggested for. Smaller tents similar to this one generally make a really nice choice for people that like spending lots of hours outside their tent getting some air.

Some of the fantastic points about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part lightweight, making them easy to carry around. In near all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very simple to set up. In calm weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most commonly seen of all the various types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing rain to roll off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the roof. The simplest dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, slanted walls two or more poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is typically thought of that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Beneath you can check out an account of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Battle Mountain can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not need to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the ground with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Gives you somewhere to store shoes and other items that can get dirty, muddy, this is a huge plus.
  3. Has Gear Loft. It is nice to see Big Agnes adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  4. Has awnings. The awnings protect the sides of the tent.
  5. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is easier to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  6. Durable, water-resistant floor. The floor material is Nylon taffeta, which is a substantially thick and high-strength fabric. Meaning the base is not prone to tears and punctures. Also, the material has a 10000 mm waterproofing rating, which is very good for most circumstances.
  7. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the whole body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1200mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy rain.
  8. Fantastic Ratings The Battle Mountain 2 has some of the best ratings of all the tents on optimumtents.com
  9. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 31 square feet, the Battle Mountain 2 is smaller than quite a few of the 189 other 2 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 10% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative factor for some people.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately specifically for the Battle Mountain 2 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Nylon taffeta, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures site the last time we checked.
  5. A little heavy for backpacking. Even though the Battle Mountain 2, looks like a small tent, it is not probably the best choice for backpacking as it weighs 7 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents
  6. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of things to be positive about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.
  7. Storage Space. Due to the size of the tent, one cannot store much stuff inside..
