Surprisingly light for a 3 person tent, the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 Tent uses a lightweight, freestanding design that makes for a roomy layout. With two opposing doors, you won’t have to crawl all over your buddies to answer natures call in the early morning hours. If you need more room, the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 Tent also comes with two large vestibules.

While the vestibules that come with the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 Tent are plenty large, you can buy larger ones if you need it. An extra, zip on, pole supported front vestibule is available for when you need even more room.

Without the rainfly in place, the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 Tent has ample mesh. This generous use of mesh means you get plenty of ventilation with or without the rainfly in place. The Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 Tent rainfly and floor are taped for waterproof protection.

The strong hub/pole framework and DAC twist clip attachment make the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 Tent a flash to setup. Combine that with the use of reverse combi-poles that vary in diameter for added strength, and the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 measures up to be one heck of a backpacking tent.
