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 bigger than the average height of the 129 different 4 person tents we have looked at. 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 throughout the 3-seasons this tent is recommended for. Smaller tents similar to this one can make a very nice choice for people who enjoy spending plenty of hours outside their tent getting some air.

Something we like about cabin tents is, that the sides of the tent are basically vertical creating a spacious interior, this gives you plenty of headroom at the sides of the tent, making it feel much larger than a dome tent, also, they tend to have wider floor areas, so they are great for families. Normally cabin tents are used by groups going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. It dose though make them better suited to cooler nights.

Underneath you can find 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 even have 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. Affords you somewhere to store shoes and other things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big 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 simpler 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 cool on a hot summers night.
  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 1500mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  8. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  9. Low price. It is a great purchase for a 4 person cabin tent providing this much space. Not a lot of tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $260.01 info_outline

CONS

  1. Susceptible to wind. Because of its size and shape, the Big House may not do well 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 want 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 lot of the 129 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available 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 tad 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
  5. Storage Space. Due to the size of the tent, one cannot store much gear inside..

CONCLUSION

4.8 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.8 STARS

Big Agnes's Big House 4 Deluxe Green Leaf tent is perfect for bicycle & motorbike camping. There are a few other things not noted above which, we noticed and liked, while researching 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 excellent ratings, a decent amount of reviews and headroom of 5' and 60 square feet of area to sleep, this tent is like your very own little home away from home. This will enable you and up to 2 other campers to spend some delightful time in the outdoors together. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can look at above.

If you found this page looking for recommendations on this actual tent, our view is, it would make for an excellent acquisition. In case you simply happened to land on this website while looking for a brand new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this model before, it is possibly a good thing to look at a few other similar tents also.

Value for money: When thinking about value for money, this tent is more competitive than the standard cost of all the one hundred and fifty, four-person tents we have taken a look at, this itself does not make it great value for money. One should also look at other things in-depth, as we do with every tent.

When we calculate the overall score of an individual tent, we study loads of things, finding things where the tent could perform well against other near-identical tents and where it is lacking. On this occasion, with an overall score of 4.8 and the price statistics above, It is simple enough to see that with a price of $260.01 info_outline Big Agnes's Big House 4 Deluxe Green Leaf is an excellent purchase and competitively priced when compared with similar tents.

Its ratings show that the quality and capacity the tent provides were not in any way compromised to obtain a price well under the average price for similar tents. It could make a fantastic choice for most campers looking for a comfortable three-season cabin tent to go camping in, that will serve you well for years to come.
