Big AgnesSeedhouse SL 1 Tent: 1-Person 3-Season

Travel far, travel lightly.

The Big Agnes Seedhouse SL 1 Tent is a backpackers favorite for peak-baggers and bike tourers alike. It can weigh under two pounds with the fast fly option, and can retain the versatile protection and simple comforts that campers require. With silicone treatments and PU coatings, the fly and floor ensure reliable protection when wet weather tries to dampen your trips. Alternatively, the mesh canopy provides proper airflow during summer's warmer weather.

Big Agnes equipped the Seedhouse SL with DAC's ever-popular Pressfit poles with Angle Hubs and plastic clips for a simple and quick setup. There are 11 stakes, webbing, and reflective guylines that prevent you from tripping throughout the night. Multiple mesh pockets organize tiny essentials, and there's one with a media port so you can listen to your nightly sleep sounds as you snooze, but we'd recommend relying on nature's symbiotic melodies instead.

In it for the long haul

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I can tell I will have this tent for a long time to come, it is super durable. Plenty of room for myself, my gear and even my dog. I wish I had bought one sooner.

If it's your cross-country bike tour or the weekend peak you've been looking to bag, the Seedhouse will forever be faithful.

just an inch too low

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used the tent for a few years now and love it's small weight, size etc. The fabrics are thin and leightweight, which means you need to take care of it a little bit more than you would have to with heavier gear, but the tent has held up to careful use quite well. A little rip in the netting, but no busted zippers, unraveled seams etc. It's pretty well-made!
I like that the tent is long enough for me (6'3") to stretch out in, but I wished it was just a tad taller. I can't sit up in it. The tiny mesh pocket above your head is also rather minimalist. But then, it was the lightest tent on the market when I bought it, so sacrifices have to be made.

Best Solo Tent I have ever owned!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this tent to replace my other solo tent I previously owned. It has been on trail over 100+ miles a season for the last 5 years. It is still water poof on the rain fly and the zippers are still in working order. I have used a footprint from day one and this tent is incredible for a solo tent. It has been in massive thunderstorms, snow, hurricane force winds, and has stood up to tree debris and all sorts of hazards in the wilderness. The minimalist pitch of fly and footprint is amazing and easy to pitch. But you must stake the fly on the fly/footprint option. It has been worth every penny I spent. Highly recommended as a durable, lightweight, solo tent for backpacking.
