    Big Agnes Flying Diamond 6 Tent is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best family tent on the market!!! I have had the opportunity to really put this tent to the test over the past 2 years. It is the perfect size for my family of 4. The kids love it because they can be in their own space and access their own "kids" door. The design of the tent is reinforced by over 6 poles that criss-cross each other making it very study and capable of withstanding any weather. We have been in weather of 35 mile per hour winds, snow and heavy down pours of rain. This thing has been tested and proven by my family. One morning we awoke after an entire night of gusting winds and lightning storm. We all slept right through it because the design of the tent keeps it firmly taught and there was no annoying flapping of the tent or slapping from the gusts of wind. The next morning we saw about 12 tents that were broked and damaged. I have had rough nights in other tents so I know how miserable an evening could be in the wrong protection. On another occasion, we were surprised by snow storm that swept through Sequoia and witnessed some tents that collapsed from the heavy snowfall. Not the BIG AGNES, it is worth 3 times its retail value!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family fortress! We were looking for a 3-4 season tent for the family and for fishing trips. We found exactly what we needed in the Flying Diamond 6! Very well constructed and engineered, fly works great and very waterproof (survived nasty t-storm in it the first night in total comfort) Pretty easy to setup after a dry run in the yard. Love all the points where the fly can be rolled up for ventilation. Plenty of guy lines and stakes. Lots of storage pockets inside and space for gear under fly. Awesome for our 16 month old and us with a pack&play easily fitting in the small room. Should easily fit 2 kids in the small room and 3 adults comfortably in the big room. Two things to be aware of in the new 13/14' model that we received that we were slightly disappointed by: 1. They made the room divider a standard sheet of material with partial detachment points/roll up points (no longer a zippered divider with zip mesh door) 2. The front and back doors now only have 2/3rds coverage mesh as opposed to being full mesh zip outs = less ventilation, but probably better weather resistance I initially deducted a star for these issues, but if we didn't know about them when we ordered we wouldn't have missed them (they changed the model over the week we ordered), so 5 stars it is! Nice job Big Agnes (and REI of course), we love the tent and can't wait to put it to use in many more outdoor adventures!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This tent has met all criteria for my family of four. -tall enough for my wife to stand in (I'm 6'2")but not so tall as to be a sail in the wind or loose to much heat in cold weather. -full coverage rain fly and washtub floor -can be set up solo(takes me about 10 min) -seperate room and entrance for the kiddos -room for gear inside (plenty as the wife and I use cots) -ample room under vestibule (seriously tons) This tent is not perfect, though I'm not sure there is one, however I have not owned a better tent in the last twenty odd years since growing out of the one I had as a kid. By the way it is still in service I am literaly just too tall now. We camp for a week in the boundary waters, been to Montana Colorado Utah Az and NM, not to mention WI. Love this tent and wouldn't steer you wrong. Buy it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent First, I have only had the opportunity to use this tent a few times so far. With that being said I can compare it to my old tent and this seems to be far superior. There is less mesh to keep you warmer when it is cold. If you need ventilation zippered windows on the doors can be opened and there are 4 places on the fly to allow more air circulation. The design appears to be able to withstand wind well. Remember this is a big tent and has a large surface to be blown against; however, the walls curve more and don't stand as high so its not like the wind is hitting a wall. There are plenty of pockets and it is easy to set up. One down side the small room has to be stacked for the tent to stand.
