The little things make the biggest differences.
When you're out on a week-long backpacking trip in the high mountains, chances are you'll be spending a good amount of time taking shelter from the rain in your tent. Make the time you spend walled up in a tent more enjoyable with the Big Agnes Rattlesnake SL3 MtnGLO Tent. Featuring MtnGLO technology, the tent has a lightweight strand of LED lights integrated into the canopy of the tent, so you can illuminate the inside of the tent with just the flick of a switch. The lights can be powered either with three AAA batteries or a USB power source. This three person option in the Rattlesnake line has a trail weight of just 4lb 11oz, so it won't weigh you down on the trail. And if you want to go ultralight, you can go the fast-pitch route with just the rain fly and a footprint (sold separate).

The Perfect Portable Home
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I hate getting into the tent after a day of adventures and either using a head lamp or flashlight to try navigating my way around. These beams of light only shining in one direction, depending on where you manually move the light. Lanterns are an alternative, but another heavy item taking space in the pack...Big Agnes Mtn GLO is the exact solution to this. The lights are sewn directly into the tent so wherever the tent goes, lighting is there too!
The tent is set up within a couple minutes and the weight is hardly noticeable when in the pack. I bought this tent to use backpacking when my fiance and I take out Bernese Mountain Dog on adventures with us. We have enough room all three of plus all of our gear inside the tent. If we overpack, or there the trip calls for three people, then the Rattlesnake have two great vestibules that will keep your gear dry, while freeing up plenty of room inside.
I would highly recommend this tent for backpacking, or anykind of camping.
