An ultralight backpacker's dream tent.

The Big Agnes Seedhouse SL3 Tent is one of the lightest 3-person 3-season tents in's arsenal, and it's the perfect match for any ultralight backpacker out there. Big Agnes made this tent's floor and fly out of a light but tough ripstop and gave them a polyurethane coating and fully taped seams for excellent protection against bad weather. The mesh body provides a thorough amount of airflow on the warm days, and the DAC Featherlite NSL pole system connects three poles with the press fit connectors in order to provide a sufficiently stable, secure, and speedy setup. This tent has just enough space for three people, and the vestibule should be able to store all three utlralight backpacks without a problem. Six mesh pockets help you organize your gear, loops connect with a gear loft (loft sold separately), and Big Agnes also included eleven stakes for setup.

  • Nylon ripstop fly and floor with polyurethane coatings
  • Fully taped seams

  • DAC Featherlite NSL pole system with press fit connectors
  • One door, one vestibule
  • 3 lb. 9 oz ultralight
  • Eleven stakes, six mesh pockets, and gear loft loops included

Here's what others have to say...

What is the difference between Packaged Weight, Trail Weight and Fast Pitch Weight (Fast Fly Weight as Big Agnes calls it).

Also what does the footprint weigh?

Responded on

Here is how Big Agnes defines the different weights for their tents:

Packed weight:
This is the heaviest you can expect your tent to weigh, straight out of the box or from the store. This weight refers to all packaging, hang tags, as well as the stuff sacks, fly, body, stakes, poles, and guy lines.

Trail weight:
This is the lightest you can expect your tent to weigh, stripped of everything but the essentials. This number reflects the weight of just the fly (no guy lines), body, and poles.

Fast-fly weight:
This is the weight of your fly, footprint and poleset only.

Seedhouse SL3 info:

Packed Weight - 4lb 0 oz (64 oz) or 1810grams
Trail Weight - 3lb 9 oz (57 oz) or 1620grams
Fast Fly Weight - 2lb 12 oz (44oz) or 1250grams
Footprint Weight - 7 oz or 198grams

Hi, is this the 2014 model? There is another...

Hi, is this the 2014 model? There is another Seedhouse SL 3 on the site which is a bit cheaper and I can't tell the difference! The key question is which footprint do I need to go with this tent. Thanks.

Hey Jon130230915,
This is the 2014 model, the other model is a 2013. The only difference between the two is the material of the mesh. The 2014 version has a lighter material so it shaved off some weight. Other than that the dimensions of the two tents are the same. So the footprint will work on both tents. Let us know if you have further questions or concerns!
