Summary: Favorable Reviews

Pretty huge in size. The space inside the tent is big enough that five persons can fit in it or even more no complaints about this one.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

Zippers are one of the problems here. Though, I get used to them because I've been using it for a month now. I guess you just keep on using it, but of course, you got to be careful.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Big House 6 Deluxe Green Leaf has two windows and two doors and a maximum center height of 6' 6 which is a tiny bit bigger than the average height of the 106 different 6 person tents we have studied. With 75 square feet of room inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 6-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, up to five other campers all through the 3-seasons this tent is suggested for. Smaller tents similar to this one can make a good choice for campers that like spending heaps of hours outside of the tent enjoying the fresh air.

Something we like about cabin tents is, that the sides are basically vertical creating a sizeable interior, this makes for a lot more headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much larger than other types of tents, also, they tend to have wider floor areas, so they are great for families. In general cabin tents are used by families 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 cooler months.

Beneath 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 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. Offers you somewhere to store shoes and other items 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 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. More than one window. With 2 windows it is simple 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 rain.
  8. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

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 need to stake and tie it down correctly.
  2. Not roomy. With a floor area of 75 square feet, the Big House 6 is smaller than quite a lot of the 106 other 6 person tents we have looked at.
  3. Only one room. The Big House is recommended for 6 people, many other tents of a similar size have more than one room allowing for a little more privacy.
  4. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately specifically for the Big House 6 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.

CONCLUSION

4.6 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.6 STARS

Big Agnes's Big House 6 Deluxe Green Leaf tent is great for car camping. There are a couple of other nice points not mentioned above which, we 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 fantastic ratings, a decent amount of reviews and a peak height of 6' and 75 square feet of area to sleep, this tent is like your very own little house. It allows you and up to 4 other campers to enjoy some delightful time camping together. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can read through above.

If you found this page looking for suggestions about this specific tent, our view is, it should make for an excellent buy. If you just happened to arrive on this page while looking for a new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this tent model previously, it is possibly a good thing to check out a few more comparable tents.

Value for money: In terms of value for your money, this tent is more costly than the usual price of all the one hundred and seven, six-person tents we have studied, all alone this is not a negative thing. We also need to take into account other factors in-depth, as we do with each tent.

When we tally up the valuation of an individual tent, we reflect upon a good deal of data points, finding things where the tent could perform well against other very similar tents and where it is not quite as good. In this case, with a total score of 4.6 and the price conclusions above, It is simple enough to see that with a ticket price of $419.95 info_outline The Big House 6 Deluxe Green Leaf is an excellent purchase although it may be perceived as a tiny bit pricey when compared with comparable tents.

Its overall score shows that the build and capacity the tent offers make it a perfect buy for campers searching for a tent that can last for lots of years. It should make a decent choice for nearly all people searching for an appropriate three-season cabin tent to go camping in, that will serve you well for years to come.
