I got this tent for a 3 day trek in Bolivia so I was very interested in the lightweight and the inside space, as we were two people sharing it. Even if the weather wasn't too bad, just some rain an wind, the tent was brilliant: very easy to setup and pack, plenty of room and handy two doors that make it so much easier for each of the people inside to leave the tent or access the gear outside in the porch.
I would totally recommed it!
Awesome under 4lb tent-6'2" plenty of room
Really a great tent. I'm 6'2" and have room to spare. I grabbed this tent for $230 when on sale and there was nothing n that price bracket that came close to this. It's under 4lbs, 2 doors, 2 vestibules, easy set up. The little pole in the center is nice because it stretches out the headroom a bit. It appears that the big Agnes seed house and fly creek are very similar to this pole structure except they lack the small pole in the middle (probably for weight saving).
Nice Little Tent
I purchased my Jack Rabbit 2 from HumbleOutdoors for about $260, it came with a free footprint.
The Jack Rabbit 2 isn't the lightest 2 man tent, but it comes in under 4lbs, and that is well enough for me.
I love the side doors, there is nothing like rolling out of the tent. My old SD Clip Flashlight was a pain to get in and out.
I have used the tent on the AT, with wind and rain.,and to date this tent has been stellar.
DOES THE JOB
I retired my MSR Hubba Hubba to get this Big Agnes Jack Rabbit. I like it great so far.
the zippers don't seem too heavy duty ( that is why the hubba hubba got set on the shelf- too much red dirt camping and the zippers didn't hold up) we will see how it lasts on desert backpacking trips we just used it for 14 days straight in the desert of So. Ut with no problems....
The weight is great! not to heavy- we sleep two people and a medium sized dog (heeler mix) in the tent.
The pockets are up above the head of the tent and are suseptable to condensation- so when I stick my headlamp in it- beware of that...
I thought the color would be prone to getting dirty- but so far the dirt I have got on it has blended it pretty good and doesn't appear to dirty quickly.
good tent for the weight, I love big agnes sleeping bags, now I am starting to get sold on the tents- we will see how it holds up thats the main thing!
Does anyone have good experience with this...
Does anyone have good experience with this tent? I'm also considering the Marmot Aura. How does this one compare (besides being a whole lot lighter)?
The Aura is going to be a bit sturdier, but apart from that, there really isn't too much difference between the two of them. I dislike the hubbed pole design on tents larger than one-man, but that's personal opinion. The all-mesh top on the Aura would also be nice in summer.
