The Big Agnes Manzanares HV SL 3 mtnGLO tent is an excellent balance of weight, livability, and durability. The tent is even equipped with its own built-in lighting, making it an excellent option for 3-season backpacking.
Stretching a full 90" in length, the interior of the tent is 70" wide at the head and tapers to a width of 62" at the feet. With 41 square feet of interior space and a trail weight of 4 pounds, 7 ounces, the tent can serve as a comfortable home for up to 3 backpackers. Dual vestibules offer 18 square feet (9 square feet per vestibule) of additional weather-protected external storage space. Interior mesh pockets provide places to stash gear and clothes. Integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Wall Gear Loft (sold separately).
Offering enough light to effectively illuminate the interior of the tent, patent-pending mtnGLO technology integrates a strand of LED lights directly into the tent seams. Durable and flexible, the strand holds up to the wear of pitching and tearing down. A simple push-button controller allows you to toggle through On, Off, and 50% brightness settings. The light is powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included) but can also be lit by any USB power source.
The tent's DAC Pressfit aluminum poles are lightweight and durable. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated clips to make pitching the tent fast, easy, and intuitive. An additional short section of pole runs across the roof of the tent, pulling the tent body taut, increasing the verticality of the interior walls, and helping to maximize the spaciousness of the two vestibules.
Ample mesh on the tent body and the dual doors encourages cross ventilation and provides circulation to fight condensation build-up. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the polyester taffeta floor and nylon rip-stop rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the tent’s seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free (no PVC or VOCs) polyurethane tape to further protect the tent from the elements. If you want to travel lighter leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional Manzanares HV SL 3 mtnGLO Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 3 pounds, 5 ounces.
