Ideal for backpackers who want to travel light but still appreciate two points of entry and freestanding structure, the innovative Big Agnes Tiger Wall UL 2 tent weighs in at just 2 pounds, 3 ounces!
Tapered from the head to the foot of the tent, the interior of the tent measures 52" at its widest point and stretches a full 86" in length. The 28 square feet interior provides adequate elbow room for 2 backpackers or serves as a roomy shelter for one. Two doors provide convenient access and dual vestibules offer a combined 16 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. Interior mesh pockets provide places to stash gear and clothes while integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft, Large Trapezoid Gear Loft, or Wall Gear Loft (all sold separately).
Lightweight, collapsible DAC Featherlite NFL poles provide the tent with freestanding structure. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated clips to make setting up the tent fast, easy and intuitive. Aluminum J stakes are included to ensure a taught pitch.
Ample mesh on the tent body maximizes cross ventilation and provides circulation to fight condensation build-up. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the silicone-treated rip-stop nylon floor and rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the tent's seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements. The custom-fit Tiger Wall UL 2 Footprint (sold separately) can be used to add additional protection beneath the tent from mud, ground water, or sharp objects. If you really want to travel light, you can leave the tent body at home and use just the rainfly, poles, and the footprint to create a tarp-style set-up that weighs just 1 pound, 11 ounces!

Real Customer Reviews
- Got this tent to replace my BA Copper Spur UL1. Can't wait to use this on my next hike. I loved my Copper Spur but it was cramped if I brought my gear into the tent on rainy nights.
Likes: This tent weighs about the same as my BA Copper Spur but I get more room. Setup is just as easy as my free standing tents. I just got this tent a few weeks ago and will be taking it out for the first time next week, so I can't review on it's durability and water proof-ness.
Dislikes: I saw a YouTube review that expressed some dissatisfaction with the guy lines. I have to agree that the guy lines on the rain fly are short and I had to add a hitch knot so I could adjust it. I'm replacing the existing guy lines with some light weight 1.2 mm dyneema cord and adding some guy line cord tensioners so I can adjust the tension once it's stacked out.
- A sweet spot between the BA Copper Spur and Fly Creek
Likes: The Tiger Wall is a new tent that appears to combine the double side-entry doors from the Copper Spur with the semi-freestanding single pole foot area from the Fly Creek. For me, this tent hits the sweet spot with the Copper Spur's livability in a 35 oz package!
Dislikes: The gold color scheme doesn't exactly blend into the Atlantic Coast's natural scenery.
- Love it!
Likes: It is a very light weight tent including the frame & stakes. Love the yellow gold color of this tent. It is so easy to install with the snap frame & features. The 2 person tent is quite spacious. I love the 2 doors and the 2 vestibules.
Dislikes: Needs 2-3 more stakes in order to stretching the rain fly on the sides.
Likes: Two doors, lightweight, perfect size! I've been looking for the perfect combination of size, weight and features and the Tiger Wall has them all!
Dislikes: Nothing, really!
- Light weight
Likes: Great tent. Very light weight. Everything I was hoping for.
Dislikes: Very thin but what do you expect for a light weight tent. Would definitely recommend a footprint
