Summary: Favorable Reviews

I took this tent on a trip, and it was all good. It was so easy to set up. Even taking it down, I didn't find it difficult. I love the storage pockets inside. It's handy for my things.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

You may have a hard time setting this up for the first time, especially for beginners. Vestibules are sold separately from the tent, which is sad.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Big House 4 Deluxe Green Leaf has two windows and two doors and a peak center height of 5' 8, which is a tiny bit more than the average height of the 134 various 4 person tents we have studied. With 60 square feet of space inside, it is a little bit smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it could be a little tight for you and, up to three other campers during the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one make a fantastic choice for campers that love spending plenty of time outside of their tent exploring.

One of the awesome things about cabin tents is, that the sides are near vertical creating a larger interior, this allows for a lot more headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much larger than a dome tent, most of the time, they tend to have large floor areas, so they are great for larger groups. Normally cabin tents will be used by people going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. That dose though make them better suited to colder nights.

Underneath you can check out a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Big House Deluxe Green Leaf 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. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Gives you a place to store shoes and other items that can get dirty, muddy, this is a huge plus.
  3. Has Gear Loft. It is good to see Big Agnes adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  4. Has awnings. The awnings shelter the walls 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. More than one window. With 2 openings it is easier to keep the tent ventilated on a hot summers night.
  7. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the entire body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1500mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  8. Awesome Ratings The Big House 4 has some of the best ratings of all the tents on optimumtents.com
  9. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  10. Low price. It is a great buy for a 4 person cabin tent providing this much space. Not many tents available on the market provide this level of quality for only $369.95

CONS

  1. Sensitive to wind. Because of its size and shape, the Big House may not do best in strong winds if it is not firmly secured with the provided guy lines and stakes. Even though the tent is listed as freestanding in all but very calm conditions, one would need to stake and tie it down correctly.
  2. Not roomy. With a floor area of 60 square feet, the Big House 4 is smaller than quite a few of the 134 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately designed for the Big House 4 footprint Even though the floor may be made of tough fabric, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. A little heavy for backpacking. Even though the Big House 4, looks like a small tent, it is not ideal for backpacking as it weighs 11 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents

CONCLUSION

4.7 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.7 STARS

Big Agnes's Big House 4 Deluxe Green Leaf tent is great for bicycle & motorbike camping. There are a couple of other points not noted above which, were noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: Ready to pitch; with pre-cut guy lines and tensioners attached to fly, 10 interior mesh pockets, 2 bin pockets and Velcro tabs connect fly to pole structure providing perfect pitch and extra stability.

With exceptional ratings, a decent amount of reviews and a minimum headroom of 5' and 60 square feet of area to sleep, this tent is like your own modest home away from home. It enables you together with 2 other campers to spend some really enjoyable moments exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can look at above.

If you came to this page looking for an endorsement on this particular tent, we consider, it should make for a very good buy. In case you just happened to land on this page while looking for a brand new tent having not heard of this brand or this tent before, it is probably a good idea to check out some other similar tents.

Value for money: When thinking about value for your money, this tent is a cheaper than the usual price of all the one hundred and fifty-four, four-person tents we have looked at, this alone by itself does not make it excellent value for money. We also need to look at other factors in-depth, as we do for every tent.

When we measure the score of a tent, we reflect upon tons of data points, searching for areas where the tent could beat other comparable tents and where it is lacking. In this case, with a total score of 4.7 and the price details above, one can conclude that with a price of $369.95 The Big House 4 Deluxe Green Leaf is an excellent buy and astonishingly cheap when compared with comparable tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and dimensions the tent gives you were not in any way skimped on to arrive at a price tag undoubtedly under the average price for comparable tents. It is also worth noting it is discounted by 0% from the manufactures suggested retail price. It should make an exceptional choice for most campers looking for an appropriate three-season cabin tent to go camping in, that should serve you well for years to come.
