With durable construction and a weight of just 3.5 pounds, the Big Agnes C Bar 2 offers versatility for backpacking or camping use. Its pole structure offers an excellent space-to-weight ratio at a budget-friendly price.
Measuring 52" at its widest point at the head and tapering to 42" at the feet, the tent has a 28 square foot interior. The large front door provides convenient access and a corresponding vestibule provides 7 streamlined square feet of external storage space. Interior mesh pockets also help to maximize floor space by getting clothes and gear up off the floor. Integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft (sold separately).
DAC Pressfit aluminum poles grant sturdy, freestanding structure and maximize interior space. Note that Big Agnes does include lightweight aluminum hook stakes to ensure a taut pitch. The hubbed design of the poles and integrated clips on the tent body make set up easy. Mesh panels in the polyester tent body provide ventilation that cuts down on condensation. Coated with 1500mm waterproof polyurethane, the polyester taffeta floor and rainfly fend off moisture and deliver reliable durability. All of the tent’s seams are tape sealed to further protect the tent from the elements.
If you want to travel lighter, leave the tent body at home and use the poles and rainfly alone with the optional C Bar 2 Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs less than 3 pounds.

Real Customer Reviews
- Cozy, lightweight, roomy
Likes: I bought this tent as a backpacking tent for my daughter, she loves it!
It’s light, super-easy to set-up and sturdy in the wind when guyed-out. Plenty of ventilation yet not breezy when guyed properly.
Well designed with quality materials all-around.
Reasonably priced, too!
Dislikes: It’s really a comfortable one person tent with extra room, not a two-person tent.
