      Comments about Big House 6 Tent - 6 Person, 3 Season:

      After a couple of camping trips with the Big House 6, here's my review.

      Be aware. there are at least 3 versions of this tent (maybe 4).

      1. Pre 2013: most of the reviews you read are for the pre 2013 version of this tent. As best as I can tell here are the features of these tents:
      * Trapezoidal foot print
      * Two doors
      * Two brow poles (front and back)
      * Non-full coverage rain fly (even with optional vestibule, back door is exposed)
      * Screen mesh covering two sides of the tent (non-entrance points)

      2. 2013 version
      * Trapezoidal foot print
      * One door
      * One brow pole (front only)
      * FULL coverage rain fly (with optional vestibule)
      * Screen mesh covering three sides of the tent (back, left and right sides)

      3. Post 2013 version
      * Rectangular foot print
      * Two doors
      * One brow pole (front only)
      * Non-full coverage rain fly (even with optional vestibule, back door exposed)
      * Screen mesh in a totally different configuration (both left and right sides at angles, nothing at the back due to the door)

      As described above, the newest version of this tent (2014) goes back to the two door, non-full coverage rain fly configuration. It also is a smaller tent in that it is now a rectangular foot print instead of the trapezoidal one. Both the pre-2013 and the 2013 version have a third full tent pole which goes from side to side, making the trapezoidal shape of the floor.
      The newest version has a rectangular floor with a partial pole which goes from left to right on the tent (ala, half a "halo", similar to the Marmot)

      My 2013 version:

      As mentioned, we've had a couple of camping trips with this tent. The quality is very good, with fully taped seams on the floor, exposed door, and rain fly. Inside there are two nylon shelves for gear at the top back, two upper mesh gear pockets toward the front, as well as plenty of mesh storage around the bottom of the tent.
      There's plenty of head room. I'm a full 6' tall and don't come close to touching the top of the tent.
      The trapezoid design allow for a more vertical wall structure, thus more room. We sleep with two air beds, and use the "bump outs" of the trapezoid to put some of our gear.
      I'm a huge fan of full coverage rain fly's. That's the reason I bought the 2013 version of this tent. Two doors are useful at times, but for our family of 3, it's not a necessity. I'd much rather have the weather protection of the full fly. It also appears Big Agnes has done away with the high quality DAC aluminum poles and now uses something a bit cheaper. The poles they use now are no longer anodized, but just the plain aluminum color. They look and feel to be good quality, but only time will tell if they're as nice as the DAC poles. I think they'll probably hold up fine.
      The tent and optional vestibule come with nice reflective guy lines, and pretty stout aluminum stakes. I like that the "guy outs" on the rain fly are also reflective. That said, I wish the guy lines were a more "florescent" color. They're dark maroon, which matches the tent, but in the shade and at dusk, they're a bit hard to notice if you're just walking around the tent without a light shining directly on them. I purchased 100 feet of florescent reflective yellow 550 paracord from Gorilla, and replaced the stock lines with this during down times on our two camping trips. HUGE difference in visibility.
      When researching to buy a tent, I also looked at the Marmot Halo 6 and Marmot Limestone 6. What sold me on the Big Agnes Big House is the ability to roll up the rain fly for extra ventilation with the rain fly still staked out. This feature really rocks. The ventilation with the fly rolled up is awesome. You can roll up the fly around the tent in about two minutes, and put it all the way back down in about one.
      During one of our trips we had some fairly heavy rain, but the full coverage fly kept us completely dry. The optional vestibule doesn't have a floor, but I just used some old canvas tarps to make a floor. It seemed much nicer this way, and made it easier to keep dirt out of the tent when coming and going. The "welcome mat" is worthless in my opinion. It's just one more thing I have to clean before I can tear down the tent. We just use an old door mat we've used for years. Beat it against a tree and you're done. (remember, this is a car camping tent, it's really not for backpacking. That's why we use extra tarps, mats, etc...)

      All in all I'm really happy with this tent and can see many enjoyable camping years to come. (4.5 stars, but I round down)

      Cheers

      Comments about Big House 6 Tent - 6 Person, 3 Season:

      Bought this tent for a 1 1/2 week car camping trip. Expected some stormy weather. Gear kept nice a dry inside. The full fly makes the difference. The fly was spaced up to 6 inches off of the tent in some areas. This allowed for good ventilation with the fly on. 2 double air beds barely fit with little room to spare on the ends of the beds. Would be perfect size for 4 camping pads or cots though (our next planned camping gear purchase). We also bought the footprint and vestibule.

        Comments about Big House 6 Tent - 6 Person, 3 Season:

        I spent over a month researching tents came down to 3,Kelty,Marmot and Big Agnes.The Marmot limestone6 with it's double vestibule was getting to big as far as area it was going to take up.The Big House 6 not having the vestibules would be perfect.You allways set up a tent with the back to the west and with the new 2013 Big house only having the one door now is what it needed to hold up better in the wind and rain.This tent is big enough for 6 but no elbow room so 4-5 with plenty of room for gear or what have you.I would like to see them put a heavier floor in it but with the footprint or tarps under it's fine.I got US Army woobies to put down on the inside floor for extra padding and protection.This tent is so easy to put up takes me about 12 min by myself.The briefcase bag makes packing it away very easy.I did buy better tent stakes.The tent has reinforced corners and other areas were needed for tie downs the tie down straps are not just sown into the seams like other tents they do a split box stitch.This is a very well made tent.Someone needs to make a good video on this this tent for us consumers to see just how good this tent is.I'm use to sleeping in a 16'tipi but I'm getting to old to be dragging it around so I bought the Big House 6 which makes it much easier now to go camping.This is a good 3 season tent.My thanks to Campsaver for the great savings on my camping gear.Take it from this old Indian you wont go wrong with any of the Big Agnes products.
