Large enough to shelter the entire family, the Big Agnes Big House 4 is a fully featured 3-season camping tent. Vast interior space and a 68" peak height speak to the roominess and livability of the Big House 4.

Fifty-seven square feet of interior space provides the Big House 4 with elbow room for up to 4 inhabitants. A full rainfly protects the tent body from the elements, but does not include a true vestibule. The Big Agnes Vestibule 4 (sold separately) can be attached to the Big House 4 to provide an impressive 37 square feet of weather-protected external storage space! Two built-in storage shelves and six sewn-in internal mesh pockets provide a dedicated place to stash clothes and gear, enhancing the livability of the Big House 4. Integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for a gear loft (sold separately).

The roof and large side panels of the Big House 4 are made of mesh, maximizing cross ventilation and allowing air circulation to fight condensation build-up. The two large doors further aid in airflow, but integrated panels can be raised behind the door to protect the interior of the Big House 4 from precipitation and provide privacy. Coated with 1500mm waterproof polyurethane, the polyester floor and rainfly are extremely durable. All of the Big House 4's seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements. The Big Agnes Big House 4 Footprint (sold separately) can be used to add protection to the tent floor from mud, ground water and sharp objects like rocks, exposed roots and pine needles.

Three lightweight aluminum poles with Pressfit connectors lend freestanding structure to the Big House 4. Color-coded pole ends, grommet webbing and buckles make it easy to attach the poles to the clips and sleeves of the tent body. Fourteen sturdy aluminum hook stakes are included to further secure the Big House 4 in place.

The Big Agnes Big House 4 includes a briefcase style carry bag that features convenient interior storage pockets and easy-carry shoulder straps.

Likes: This is a roomy, well made, and easy to assemble tent!

Dislikes: N/A

Reviewed by Inside Edge M. - August 12, 2014

Likes: Best tent I've ever had. Expert hiker recommended Big Agnes to me and I see why. It is so well designed - there are tons of mesh pockets inside, set up is easy and we survived a recent day of heavy thunderstorms without leaks. Very roomy size for two adults and gear. I'm 5' 10" and stood up easily in tent. My favorite thing actually may be the carrying case. Zip bag for stakes, instructions sewn in and roomy to easily pack the tent away each time.

Dislikes: Only complaint is the front entrance. The overhang doesn't come out far enough. If it's raining out, a little rain makes it in the front. Not a big issue at all.
