With a trail weight of just over 4 pounds, the Big Agnes Seedhouse SL 3 is truly a lightweight favorite. The shape of the tent provides more usable interior volume than most other ultra-lightweight tents, making it ideal for ounce-counters who still appreciate elbow room.
The freestanding Seedhouse SL 3 is easy to set up and can be positioned in the ideal location after it's been pitched. It uses a DAC aluminum pole system with Pressfit connectors and lightweight hubs that attach to the tent body with plastic clips for quick and easy set up. The architecture of the poles increases the verticality of the side walls to increase the feeling of livability within the 42 square foot tent.
With an interior peak height of 43" and a vestibule area providing 13 square feet of sheltered exterior space for gear, the Seedhouse SL 3 provides sufficient room for three and can serve as a spacious home for two. Nylon mesh panels in the ripstop side walls create ventilation that cuts down on condensation. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the floor and rainfly fend off moisture and deliver reliable durability. All of the Seedhouse SL 3’s seams are sealed with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements.
Four sewn-in interior mesh storage pockets offer places to stash essentials inside the tent. Integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Large Trapezoid Gear Loft and the Big Agnes Entertainment Loft (both sold separately).
If you want to go even lighter, the optional Seedhouse SL 3 Footprint (sold separately) can be attached to the tent fly eliminating the tent body for light and fast summer backpacking.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great little tent
Likes: This is a great little tent for 2 people or 1 person and her dog. It is light enough to use for backpacking, although I also use it for my car camping adventures.
Dislikes: Although the tent is supposed to be for 3 people, it is way too small for 3 big people.
