New for 2014! Offering an excellent weight-to-space ratio and employing a hybrid single wall/double wall design, the 3-season worthy Big Agnes Angel Springs UL 3 tent is a unique and effective balance of ventilation and weather protection.
With full dimensions of 70" wide (at its widest point) by 90” long, the Angel Springs UL 3 offers 41 square feet of interior space. This provides adequate room for three, but at a trail weight of only 3 pounds, 6 ounces, the tent can also serve as a really spacious two-person tent. A vestibule over the single door provides 11 additional square feet of weather-protected external storage space. Five interior mesh pockets provide places to stash gear and clothes while media pockets located above the sleeping area enable headphone/ear bud cord routing from phones or other devices. Integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Large Trapezoid Gear Loft (sold separately).
The Angel Springs UL 3’s DAC Featherlite NFL aluminum poles are both lightweight and durable. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated DAC Twist Clips to make setting up the Angel Springs UL 3 fast, easy and intuitive. A short, connected brow pole helps to pull the tent body taut, increasing the verticality of the interior walls and helping to maximize the spaciousness of the vestibule.
Ample mesh on the front and roof of the tent body as well as the D-shaped door encourages cross ventilation and provides circulation to fight condensation build-up. The rear wall has an enclosed construction that mirrors single wall tents, provides greater weather protection and enables the Angel Springs UL 3 to shed weight by using less material on the actual rainfly. All of the tent's seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements.
If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional Angel Springs UL 3 Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 2 pounds, 1 ounce.
Reflecting an overall commitment to maintaining as light a packed weight as possible, ten superlight aluminum J stakes are included to further secure the freestanding Big Agnes Angel Springs UL 3 tent.
