Updated for 2014! With a packed weight of less than 3 pounds, the Big Agnes Seedhouse SL 1 is truly a lightweight favorite. The shape of the Seedhouse provides more usable interior volume than most other ultra-lightweight solo tents, making it ideal for solo backpackers.
Unlike many other ultra-lightweight tents, the Seedhouse SL 1 is freestanding, so it's easy to set up and easy to position into the ideal location after it's been pitched. The Seedhouse SL 1 uses a DAC Featherlite NSL pole system with Pressfit connectors and lightweight hubs that attach to the tent body with plastic clips for quick and easy set up.
With an interior peak height of 38" and a vestibule area providing 5 square feet of sheltered exterior space for gear, the Seedhouse SL 1 provides plenty of room for the solo backpacker. The Seedhouse SL 1 is also very well ventilated with full nylon mesh side walls that won't trap moisture and condensation. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the nylon rip-stop floor and rainfly are extremely durable. All of the Seedhouse SL 1’s seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements.
Two sewn-in interior mesh storage pockets offer places to stash essentials in your Seedhouse SL 1. Integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft (sold separately).
If you want to go even lighter, the optional Seedhouse SL 1 Footprint (sold separately) can be attached to the tent fly eliminating the tent body for light and fast summer backpacking. In this Fast Fly configuration, the Seedhouse SL 1 weighs a mere 1 lb. 12 oz.
