SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Rabbit Ears 6 has one window and one door and a maximum center height of 6' 6, which is a tiny bit more than the average height of the 106 other 6 person tents we have studied. With 85 square feet of space inside, it is considerably smaller than some other 6-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, up to five other campers throughout the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents similar to this one can generally make a good choice for people who prefer spending loads of hours outside of their tent exploring.

A few of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances light, making them simple to carry around. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very easy to set up. In calm weather, you can do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are easily the most commonly seen of all the other sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to fair better in storms than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the roof. The most basic dome tent should have a rectangular floor, sloped sides two or more poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is generally considered that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Underneath you can check out a list of the tent's pros and cons.

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 nice 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 downpours.
  4. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  5. Low price. It is a great deal for a 6 person dome tent that provides this much space. Not a lot of tents available on the market provide this level of quality for only $229.95 info_outline

CONS

  1. Vulnerable to wind. Because of its size and shape, the Rabbit Ears 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 spacious. With a floor area of 85 square feet, the Rabbit Ears 6 is smaller than quite a few of the 106 other 6 person tents we have looked at.
  3. Only one room. The Rabbit Ears is recommended for 6 people, some other tents of a similar size have more than one room allowing for a little more privacy.
  4. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the elements, you need keep them inside the tent.
  5. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately designed for the Rabbit Ears 6 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Polyester Ripstop, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  6. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have lots of attributes to rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

3.4 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.4 STARS

Big Agnes's Rabbit Ears 6 tent is ideal for car camping. Here are a couple of other things not mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while researching 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 favorable ratings, a couple of reviews and a peak height of 6' and 85 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your very own modest house. This allows you together with 4 other people to spend some real quality time exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can check out above.

If you found this page looking for suggestions about this particular tent, we consider, it would make for a good buy. In case you just happened to land on this website while browsing for a brand new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent model previously, it is perhaps a good thing to look at a few more comparable tents.

Value for money: When thinking about value for your dollar, this tent is a more competitive than the average cost of all the one hundred and seven, six-person tents we have taken a look at, this by itself does not make it excellent value for money. We also need to think about other factors in detail, as we do for each tent.

When we measure the valuation of a single tent, we consider tons of areas, looking for things where the tent could outshine other very similar tents and where it is coming up short. In this case, with a total rating of 4.3 and the price conclusions above, It is simple to identify that with a price of $229.95 info_outline The Rabbit Ears 6 is a very good buy and incredibly priced in comparison with similar tents.

The ratings show that the build and capacity the tent provides were not skimped on to finish up with a price tag significantly beneath the normal price for similar tents. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is discounted by 30% from the manufactures MSRP. It should make an awesome choice for nearly all people searching for a comfy three-season dome tent to camp in, that will serve you well for years to come.
