    Details

    Room for the whole crew.

    When weight and space aren't your main concern, then you might as well go all-out with the Big Agnes Big House Deluxe 6 Tent. Whether you're touring around the country in search of new trails with your mountain biking crew or you're checking national parks off the list with your family, the Big House 6 ensures ample protection and plenty of space to keep you comfortable in the outdoors.

    Not only does the Big House 6 offer plenty of space to sprawl out, but it also has an extra-tall profile to allow you to stand all the way up when you need to change clothes or simply stretch. Due to the high profile of this tent, Big Agnes recommends staking out all the stake-out points and guylines for stability in windy conditions. A huge optional vestibule (sold separately) gives you plenty of space to stash gear and creates a place to hang out while you escape the mid-day sun or afternoon rainstorms. A welcome mat at the front door gives everyone a space to wipe off their muddy shoes so the tent interior doesn't get mucked up. This tent is also compatible with the Big Agnes Entertainment Center loft (also sold separately) so the kids can get their daily dose of cartoons before bed—kids these days, right?

    • An extra spacious shelter for families or big crews
    • PU-coated fly and floor protect against rain and damp ground
    • Tall profile provides room to stand and stretch
    • Color-coded grommet webbing and buckles for easy pitching
    • 18 mesh interior pockets for ample organization
    • Reflective guylines increase visibility at dusk and dawn
    • Briefcase-style carrying case with pockets for easy transport
    • Big Agnes finds inspiration for its products in its Colorado surroundings

    Big Agnes Big House Series Tents

    Why Big House Deluxe? The envy of campsites everywhere, you’ll enjoy the supreme features of the Deluxe, like your own front door welcome mat, 12 large interior pockets for keeping your tent organized and your gear off the floor, and a briefcase style carry bag which is easy to tote around and pack. Steep walls and ample head height give the Deluxe a living room feel, and when you add on an Accessory Vestibule, you really have the Taj Mahal of the campground.

    Car Camping Palace

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    After getting tired of squeezing into my UL tents while car camping, I decided to take out a true car camping tent and I couldn't have been happier. The Big House 6 is incredibly easy to set up for such a big tent. It was just my climbing partner, myself, and our gear in the tent and we had more room than we could have asked for. Winds picked up pretty heavily during the trip and the Big House stood strong. We didn't use the Deluxe Vestibule with it, but I think it would be great addition to the tent. I found nothing lacking at all on the tent in setup, durability, or internal features. We were using it as a base camp during a climbing trip, so the 18 interior pockets let us organize all out personal gear. It also has a Fast Fly option with the footprint that would be a great option in good weather. The briefcase style carrying case is a huge upgrade from trying to stuff such a large tent in stuff sack. Looking forward to using it again!

    Hilariously big

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The Big Agnes Big House 6 is pretty awesome. I took it on a recent car camping trip and it was wonderful to be able to spread out and stand up in the tent. The setup was pretty quick (~5 minutes for two of us setting it up the first time), although I think it would be very hard to set it alone.

    The one issue that I had was the door zipper. At times I found it hard to manipulate and open.

    Big Agnes Big House 6

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    There's lots to like about the Big House 6, so I'm just going to rattle off what struck me.

    Right away, like Danny mentioned below, the carrying case is awesome! It opens up like a book. The pole sleeve creates a backbone, there is a specific pocket for the stakes, and then the vestibule tucks into one side, the tent into the other. Very easy to pack/unpack.

    Set up was a breeze! Right away I was bummed to see pole sleeves, because in the past I have used tents where the sleeves are a hassle. That's not the case with the Big House. The sleeves are only a few feet long, so it's easy to get the pole through. From there, there are about 3 clips to each pole, so it is somewhat of a hybrid design. I think the pole sleeves are great though because they add a lot of structural stability to the tent. The vestibule corners are color coded too, so it was super easy to line it up right before we attached it.

    The next thing that stood out to me is the doormat. I know it's not a huge thing, but it’s convenient. At the very least, it's a reminder to take your shoes off before you go in to keep dirt out. In the morning it was really nice to have the mat to stand on while putting on footwear.

    It's a common theme here, but the gear storage on the inside is phenomenal. Mesh pockets galore! There's even shelves in two of the corners (see the photos above).

    Inside, the tent is really spacious. The ceiling stays pretty high the whole way across, so you can stand up near the walls and not just in the center like many tents. We slept 4 in it very comfortably with all of our gear. There was even room for a game of cribbage. I know it's rated as a 6 person tent (and you totally could sleep 6), but 6 adults would be pushing it comfort-wise. I think a family of 6 would do just fine, but if my group had 6 I would likely have opted to sleep in my 2p tent.

    In summary: This is a great car camping tent with lots of room, gear storage, and stability. For me, what sets the Big House apart is the user experience. From set up to take down, everything is flawlessly designed.

    Amazing tent!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Really easy to set-up. Very high quality materials. Stakes are crappy aluminum but the poles are great. 2 doors are super convenient and all the pockets are super nice. Rain fly is a breeze to put on. I am 6'1" and I can stand up in this thing, no problem. Oddly enough, the carrying case is my favorite feature. Separate compartments for the fly and tent, an attached bag for the poles, and a mesh zipper pockets for the stakes. Genius! Bravo Big Agnes :)

    Take It To The House

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    As a person who generally likes to travel as a minimalist (low weight, low bulk), when my girlfriend suggested we take the Big House on our recent climbing trip I was skeptical. I love Big Agnes tents, but a 6 person tent seemed over the top for the 2 of us. Nevertheless, we took it out and I have to say I was incredibly impressed.

    Setting the tent up with just 2 people was as easy as pie. It took about 2 minutes or so to get it up and staked in and the fly was a cinch to throw on top. Then I stepped inside...

    The fact that I could walk upright in the tent was unbelievable to me as that is something I have never experienced in a tent before as someone about 6 feet tall. There were mesh storage pockets everywhere for all of your important items and as previously mentioned, even without the fly, it afforded a significant amount of privacy.

    What really impressed me though, was how well it held up to bad weather, specifically high winds. One of the reasons I have avoided large tents in the past is because of the number of times I have seen them blow over or break poles due to high winds. The second night of our trip was a blustery one, but even so, I didn't even have to think about getting out of the tent to reinforce it, and I was sold on how structurally sound the tent was overall.

    Ultimately, if you're looking for a tent to take out with a large family or group of friends, I would highly recommend this one. It is spacious enough for 6 and roomy enough for two with everything you could ever imagine needing to bring into your tent. 10/10 would recommend.

    Bring your mansion along !

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Big House 6 may fit six, but it certainly doesn't take that many to pitch it! I was able to throw it up as easily as I am my 2-person backpacking tent, which is a blessing after a long day of driving.

    If you're looking for a tent to fit the whole fam (or just want a portable mansion all to yourself) then look no further. The Big House 6 boasts ample room for six people, with lots of great mesh pockets to keep your clothes organized and off the ground. Without the fly on, the mesh upper half and ripstop polyester lower half gave me plenty of privacy to change at a fairly crowded campsite, yet still let in enough light and fresh air in. One of my favorite features of this tent is the stand up room. I am 5'7" and my boyfriend is about 6'1," and we are both able to stand up and walk around without hunching.

    I recently used this tent on a trip to Oregon, and for about 24 hours we experienced high wind gusts and a pretty consistent rain, but the Big House withstood it all like a champ. There was no dampness or leaking at all inside the tent, and it didn't even bend or bow in the wind.

    When it's time to break down camp and head home you'll have no issues getting the tent, rainfly, poles, and stakes neatly into the briefcase-style carrying bag. I was so impressed by how each component fit neatly into their designated compartment, ready for the next time you hit the road.
