Green Thumbs Up Logo

Summary: Favorable Reviews

(Based on the 2 and 3 person model) Buyers noted: That they were very happy with this tent. It kept the bugs out. Strong rain didn't even penetrate to it. The fact it is so lightweight made it very easy to carry.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

(Based on the 2 and 3 person model) Campers noted: It doesn't have plenty of room for two people (adults). The dual doors are great but the zippers might break at any time if you don't carefully close or open them.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Tiger Wall 1 UL has one door and a maximum center height of 3' 3, which is a little bit less than the average height of the 68 different 1 person tents we have studied. With 19 square feet of room inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 1-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you all through the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents like this one generally make an awesome choice for campers who love spending plenty of hours outside their tent getting some air.

Many of the great points about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part light, making them easy to carry. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In good weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are easily the most commonly seen of all the various sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in storms than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, resulting in the water pooling on the roof. The most basic dome tent should have a square floor, sloped walls two or more poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is typically thought of that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Down below, you can see a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Gives you a place to store shoes and other things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big plus.
  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 1200mm. 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.

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 19 square feet, the Tiger Wall 1 is smaller than quite a lot of the 68 other 1 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 5% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative thing for some campers.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately specifically for the Tiger Wall 1 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Silicone-treated ripstop nylon, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures site the last time we looked.
  5. 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.
