Green Thumbs Up Logo

Summary: Favorable Reviews

I recommend this one. After putting this up, it looks perfect. Ventilation was not a problem. Creating two doors is very helpful.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

A bit pricey compared to tents among its class. Tent stakes loops are too small. Just a suggestion, I hope they put or install some guidelines cause it's tough for us beginners.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Big House 4 Green has two windows and two doors and a peak center height of 5' 0, which is a little bit smaller than the average height of the 134 various 4 person tents we have examined With 56 square feet of room inside, it is considerably smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, up to three other campers during the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents like this one generally make a great choice for campers who enjoy spending plenty of hours outside the tent exploring.

One of the benefits of cabin tents is, that the sides are near vertical creating a spacious interior, this allows for a lot more headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much larger than other types of tents, in general the floor areas are quite large compared to other tents. In general cabin tents most often used by people going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. This dose though make them well suited to colder nights.

Beneath you can see a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Big House Green 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 floor 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 big 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 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 windows 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. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  9. Low price. It is a great buy 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 $299.95

CONS

  1. Not spacious. With a floor area of 56 square feet, the Big House 4 is smaller than quite a few of the 134 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  2. 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 Polyester, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  3. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures website the last time we checked.
  4. A tad heavy for backpacking. Even though the Big House 4, looks like a small tent, it is not probably the best choice for backpacking as it weighs 8 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents

CONCLUSION

4.3 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.3 STARS

Big Agnes's Big House 4 Green tent is good for bicycle & motorbike camping. Here are a couple of other cool things not mentioned above which, were 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 Reflective guylines and reflective webbing.

With great ratings, and a peak height of 5' and 56 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your very own miniature home away from home. It enables you together with 2 other campers to enjoy some really enjoyable time exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can read through above.

If you came to this page looking for an endorsement on this specific tent, our view is, it would make for a good acquisition. If you just happened to land on this website while browsing for a brand new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent previously, it is perhaps a good thing to look at a few other similar tents.

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

When we measure the ratings of a single tent, we consider a good deal of areas, finding areas where the tent could outperform other near-identical tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with an overall rating of 4.3 and the price details above, one can see that with a cost of $299.95 Big Agnes's Big House 4 Green is a good buy and incredibly cheap when compared with similar tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and capacity the tent provides were not skimped on to finish up with a price significantly under the average price for similar tents. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is marked down by 100% from the manufactures suggested price. It could make an exceptional choice for most people searching for a comfy three-season cabin tent to camp in, that should serve you well for years to come.
