The Big Agnes Flying Diamond 6 is a spacious, feature-rich offering for base camping or car camping. Rugged materials, weatherproof coatings and sturdy pole construction ensure that the Flying Diamond 6 provides 3+ season functionality.



Incorporating performance design with a focus on maximum livability, the Big Agnes Flying Diamond 6 is a spacious, feature-rich offering for base camping or car camping. Rugged materials, weatherproof coatings and sturdy pole construction ensure that the Flying Diamond 6 provides 3+ season functionality for your group outings.

The Flying Diamond 6 consists of two rooms, a large main room and a smaller rear sleeping room. A partition between the two chambers can be stowed, converting the Flying Diamond 6 to a single enormous (90.5 sq ft) room. A huge front vestibule offers an additional 26.5 sq. ft. of weather-protected external storage space. Interior mesh pockets increase livability by stowing gear and freeing up floor space. Integrated interior loops offer connection points for up to two Big Agnes Trapezoid Gear Lofts (sold separately).

DAC Combi Lightweight aluminum poles provide rugged durability. The overlapping design grants reliable strength to the Flying Diamond 6. Color-coded webbing and buckles work in tandem with the tent body's integrated sleeves and clips to make it easy to set up the Flying Diamond 6. Aluminum X stakes are included to fully secure the tent and bolster strength in windy conditions. Reflective highlights in the guyline provide visibility when returning to the tent at night.

The Flying Diamond 6's tent body is constructed of breathable polyester rip-stop. Nylon mesh windows provide ventilation. A 1200mm waterproof PU coating on the Flying Diamond 6's polyester rip-stop rainfly helps to keep moisture from reaching the interior of the tent while integrated fly vents allow air to circulate. The mesh front and rear doors of the tents further enhance airflow and employ zippered storm flaps for weather protection and privacy. All of the Flying Diamond 6's seams are tape-sealed to further protect against the elements.

A custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the floor of the Big Agnes Flying Diamond 6 against moisture, rocks and exposed roots.

Great Family Tent
Reviewed by Erin B. - May 7, 2017

Likes: We bought this tent for our family of five to take on a 6 week camping trip to the national parks. We really do love the tent. Its easy and fairly quick to set up and take down. We stayed in Olympic Nation Park 3 days and it rained straight but we never got wet in the tent. We do use the footprint that goes with it. There are plenty of pockets and loops to clip things and the vestibule on the front is great storage. It served us well for 45 days camping straight.

Dislikes: The zipper on the front door did end up coming apart but BE refunded us and we will probable buy the same tent again. Also the whole tent is free standing except the back 2 corners so to move the tent around you do have to take those out which we didn't love.

Best Tent EVER
Reviewed by Alane R. - September 27, 2016

Likes: I love the 2 entrances, the sturdy poles, the full cover rainfly. The big easy to pack tent bag is AWESOME!

Dislikes: So far I have none. This is the best camping product I have purchased in my 30 years of camping.

yard tested only
Reviewed by Robert S. - September 6, 2016

Likes: Easy set up. Seems well made. Footprint a nice option.

Dislikes: Time and real use will tell.

Awesome tent for car camping
Reviewed by Arjun G. - August 29, 2016

Likes: The tent is really well built. We liked that there are many mesh vents on the tent and the setup is simple enough for one person.

Dislikes: I would have liked the triangular mesh vents to have a zipper cover so that we can zip the vents for better privacy while not using the rain fly.

Big Agnes Flying Diamond 6 is rock!
Reviewed by Terry H. - July 5, 2016

Likes: Easy to setup, prevented condensation inside of the tent, good looking tent, light weight, better to hold its shape against wind. Very satisfied with my purchase. I will use it for my family camping as many as I can.

Dislikes: Since it prevents condensation by making air flow well, it gets a little cold inside of tent in the morning. You gotta bring good sleeping bags for all of family members.

Exactly What I Expected
Reviewed by Gordon K. - June 30, 2016

Likes: Extremely Spacious
2 rooms
Full Rain Protection
Built to last

Dislikes: The older model had full screens on the doors this has half.
It takes up a lot of space, so it is sometimes difficult to find a campsite.
Foot print Not Included.

I upgrade my 3-person tent to this flying diamond 6 tent. The full-cover rain fly is a champ. Two rainy nights without a single drop of water. My daughter loves her personal room while my wife and I can enjoy our privacy. The setup is easy as long as you
Reviewed by Ting - May 26, 2016

Likes: 1. full-cover rain fly 2. two spatial rooms 3. great color combination (red+gray)

Dislikes: The instruction is either out-dated or I got a tent with special "design". The instructions say that the red straps are located near the front entrance but mine actually are right next to the back door. Hope I can show the picture I took. BE did offer to take it back and replace a new one. But it is not a big deal as long as I don't read the instruction.

Excellent Tent for the Whole Family
Reviewed by Aaron W. - May 15, 2016

Likes: Ample Room for two kids on their own pads, and air mattress for tired mom and dad.
Handled thunderstorm well
Easy Setup & Take Down

Dislikes: Considering the target audience, the pan of the tent could be a bit thin but time will tell.

Reviewed by Marc G. - October 23, 2014

Likes: Loved ease of use easy to put up. Spacious inside. Love all the storage pockets on the walls.

Dislikes: The stakes could be more heavy duty for rocky terrain

Reviewed by Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer - September 9, 2013

Likes: We have only taken one trip, but so far this tent is great. Setup is easy. Since there is less mesh than other tents, there is some privacy even without the fly. Nevertheless, there is plenty of ventilation, especially with the door panels zipped down. There is plenty of room for our family of four, although we did have to squeeze the tent onto the pad. The tent appears to be very sturdy and weather-proof, although we didn't really get a thorough test. The separate room is a hit with the kids.

Dislikes: Nothing to complain about yet.
