by fromI would buy this product again I needed a tent that was small, light, easy to pack, and comfortable for two people. It had to have enough room inside for storage. This tent has it all. The only complaint is the set up is a little confusing if you don't use the tent for awhile. This is my second Big Agnes tent. My first wast the Seedhouse SL2. This is a great tent for two people.

by fromVery psyched! Roomy with nice design. Was originally looking for a two person and had ordered Copper Spur UL 2. Didn't like narrow top of Seedhouse SL2 design. Then saw Seedhouse SL3 with spreader cross pole. Bingo! Just a bit heavier than copper spur UL2 but with more durable materials/components and much more room. I've slept in it two rainy nights and stayed quite dry. Design is very nice. Like the single front door and interior height. Fly tensions nicely over tent and ventilation can be adjusted with guy lines.

by fromThis tent is HUGE If you actually need a 3 person backpacking tent, this is perfect because it's huge inside. Bought this thinking it had a little more space than the Fly Creek ul 3, however is has ALOT more space than the F.C. Great quality, lightweight, and very easy to set up. More than enough space for two people and a dog. My boyfriend is 6'4" and his length fits perfectly. Excited for all my future adventures with this tent!
