Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

It's not a tent that is good for use in winter. It would have been nice to have more than one door.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Rabbit Ears 4 has one window and one door and a peak center height of 5' 0, which is a little bit smaller than the average height of the 131 different 4 person tents we have examined With 60 square feet of room inside, it is a tiny bit smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it could be a little cramped for you and, up to three other campers all through the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents like this one make an ideal choice for people that welcome spending plenty of time outside their tent getting some air.

Some of the fantastic things about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part light, making them simple to carry around. In nearly all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very easy to set up. In calm weather, you can do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most commonly seen of all the different types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the water pooling on the top of the tent. The most basic dome tent will have a square footprint, slanted walls a couple of poles which cross in the center of the roof. Because of their construction, it is usually thought of that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Below you can find a list of the tent's pros and cons.

Click or Tap on the Tab you Want to See!

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Rabbit Ears 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 floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Internal storage. It is good to see Big Agnes has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your stuff.
  3. 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 0mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy rain.
  4. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  5. Low price. It is a great deal for a 4 person dome tent providing this much room. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $188.96 info_outline

CONS

  1. Not spacious. With a floor area of 60 square feet, the Rabbit Ears 4 is smaller than quite a few of the 131 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  2. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the elements, you will have to keep them inside the tent.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately designed for the Rabbit Ears 4 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Ripstop polyester, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. A little heavy for backpacking. Even though the Rabbit Ears 4, looks like a small tent, it is not ideal for backpacking as it weighs 9 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of qualities to be positive about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.
  6. Storage Space. because of the size of the tent, one cannot store a lot of stuff inside..

CONCLUSION

3.3 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.3 STARS

Big Agnes's Rabbit Ears 4 tent is good for bicycle & motorbike camping. There are a few other cool things not already mentioned above which, were noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: Mesh only for ventilation or zip up the polyester layer for complete closure, One window opposite door for cross ventilation and Rabbit Ears tents are versatile and value-oriented. With one cavernous door for kids to run through and plenty of mesh for ventilation on hot summer nights.

With great ratings, a couple of reviews and headroom of 5' and 60 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your very own miniature home away from home. It will enable you and up to 2 other campers to enjoy some really enjoyable moments camping together. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can check out above.

If you found this website looking for recommendations about this specific tent, our view is, it should make for a good buy. In case you simply happened to land on this website while browsing for a brand new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this tent model previously, it is perhaps a good idea to look at some other comparable tents also.

Value for money: When thinking about value for money, this tent is significantly cheaper than the normal price of all the one hundred and fifty-two, four-person tents we have studied, this just by itself does not make it excellent value for money. One should also take into account other areas in detail, as we do with every tent.

When we determine the score of a tent, we consider a lot of things, finding areas where the tent could beat out other very similar tents and where it is lacking. On this occasion, with an overall rating of 4.2 and the price statistics above, one can conclude that with a ticket price of $188.96 info_outline Big Agnes's Rabbit Ears 4 is a decent deal and incredibly competitively priced when compared with comparable tents.

Its ratings show that the quality and size the tent provides were not compromised to obtain a price unquestionably below the usual price for similar tents. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is reduced by 30% from the manufactures suggested retail price. It should make a superb choice for nearly all campers looking for an adequate three-season dome tent to go camping with, that will serve you well for years to come.
