I need help! Can somebody tell me how many "little white rings" are attached to the 3piece cross pole?This is hub system and I believe that each pole should have 2rings (-'-'-) so you can nicely attach every single ring to the hub.I believe I lost these rings(one from each pole) during fixing the poles.Recently sent to big agnes and they told me that every pole should have 1 ring only!!! So again when the tent is set up it simply looks stupid.Comparing these poles to TNF minibus 22 or 23 where these crosspoles are featured with 2 rings each....don't know what to think. How many white rings are on the short crosspole? 1or 2????
What are you considering the little white rings? I have the white clips for the four corner long poles two clips per side. There are the two white round clips per side that attach to the black "round" hooks that are on the tent (and they hold the two straight poles to extend the tents sides outward. then of coarse there are the clear round notches that the two poles end out to that attach from the tent itself? I actually have my tent set up now if you have any questions.
I've been using this tent all summer, I love it. I'm 5'7" and my guy is 6'2" and the tent is big enough for both of us to put our packs in the tent at our feet. Very roomy, you could easy fit 4 people in for a card game on a rainy day. Super easy and fast to set up and tear down. The design allows for cool star gazing. It holds up awesome in the rain, it rained most of our camping trips this year and we were dry and warm. It is not the lightest tent, but it is a two person tent, so divide the weight by two and each person only carries less than 3lbs, not bad at all, and it is totally worth it for the extra space.

Coming off a 2 man Kelty that had been used and abused, it was time for a new tent this season. I decided on the Gore Pass 2, and have been very impressed. I used it for 3 nights on its Maiden Voyage this past weekend, and Needless to say, 2 people fit incredibly comfortably. We were car camping, so we left bags in the car and there was so much space I did not even realize I was sleeping next to someone. Even with packs I feel as though this would have been very spacious. The fast fly option, and the dual vestibules are all great features with Big Agnes quality.
A little extra space
Straight outta the box, no instructions, 3 minute set up... 3 minute tear down. Love the pole and rain fly design. No 3 persona backpacking tent is huge, but this one feels like it is. I like the fast packer pitch option; great for getting outta the weather quick. My wife isn't fond of confined spaces, but this test is just right for the two of us.
Fits my style perfectly
This tent meets my needs as a Boy Scout leader for a three season tent that will be used only occasionally on back packing trips. Most of the time it will be carried short distances to campsites. It remains to be seen if it will stand up to our Midwestern winter camping. This is the lightest tent I have ever owned. There are lighter tents but we camp three to seven days at a time and I was willing to sacrifice a little extra weight for extra room.

I just bought the Anges Gore 2 and as it's almoast winter here (Ottawa Ontario) will have to wait until the Spring to get it outdoors. I did set it up inside as I couldn't wait and slept in it one night in the living room - hey way not, I enjoyed it. They question I have is about the poles, not sure if I'm folding them up right (See photo attached - I hope!). Also, if the string/rope inside the poles breaks, how to get this fixed...Thanks...Rick
Pull all poles out of the hub. (From your picture it looks like you're already done that.) If the shock cord breaks under warranty, Big Agnes will fix it for you @ no charge. They might assess a nominal fee if it's not.
cool tent, packs up small, has a good amount of vestabule space, is freestanding, a perfect choice for beginner hikers and backpackers
