    Big and burly base shelter.

    Much more than just an oversized version of a smaller tent, the Big Agnes Flying Diamond 8 Tent is a strong and spacious base camp staple. With a sturdy design and plenty of room to stretch out, it can be used as a dining room at Everest base camp, a refuge from the wind on the Playa, or a sleeping area for the whole family on summer car camping trips.

    Not only does this tent offer plenty of room to relax, it's also extra tall in the center so you can stand up comfortably, which is crucial when you're hunkered down for hours or days while waiting out a storm. A room divider lets mom and dad get a little separation from the kids, and it can easily be stowed when it's time for a family meal. The doors offer two closure options—one mesh door and one polyester layer—so you can keep the air flowing in summer or seal out the elements when facing winter conditions in the mountains. The fly itself has six vents to keep things from getting steamy and stinky when a big group of people are lounging around after an intense climbing mission or a long night of dancing at a festival. 16 interior mesh pockets keep everyone's smaller stuff separated so things don't get too chaotic. Whenever there's a big group involved you're going to want to bring the Flying Diamond 8 along for the adventure.

    • Spacious shelter for big groups and base camps
    • Taped seams and PU-coated fabrics seal out water
    • Vestibule can be staked out as shade using trekking poles
    • Stowable fabric wall separates tent into two rooms
    • Color-coded pole ends, buckles, and webbing allow easy set up
    • 20 aluminum hook stakes for secure attachment
    • DAC pole system with press fit connectors
    • Includes briefcase-style carry bag with shoulder straps
    • Item #BAG00C0

    Big Agnes Flying Diamond 8

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

    It is not funny when your tent is leaking like Swiss cheese and your 18 months baby is inside. You don't know what to do: catch a baby playing with water or catch the water. :) That is what happened to me with cheap, "department store like" tent. At that moment I knew I have to buy something reliable. There is so many very good quality tents but most of them are much smaller or much more expensive. I needed a tent big enough to fit two adults, two kids, hard cases with scuba diving equipment, scuba tanks and if possible the crib or a stroller. Big Agnes Flying Diamond 8 looked like a perfect match. So I went for it. I purchased the tent and with no real check up of the package I went to Acadia National Park. The set up of the tent was easy but I wanted to understand what parts go where so I used the manual. I highly recommend reading it before assembly. After all putting it together was not as difficult as could be but it is helpful to have two people for it. Poles are long and it was difficult for me to do it by myself. The following afternoon weather changed. For about 12 hours we had a constant, heavy rain. Inside we ere totally dry. Not even one drop got inside. The only thing that concerned me was water cumulating between tent floor and the tarp under the tent. I was afraid it will get through the fabric. But it did not. So we went into our sleeping bags and slept like a babies entire night. The next some 95% of people was drying sleeping bags, sleeping pads and other belongings all over the campsite -and we were bone dry. Our tent was just dirty because water was splashing on it.
    So... do I recommend it? Definitely!!!! If you can put in your car not backpack - go for it. It is big and heavy so probably not for backpacking trip. I hope it will serve me this way for many years to come. Final word - if you can afford it - buy it. You will not regret it.

    I used this on a several day touring trek in the Unitas. I had the 6 person tent and had 5 people in there comfortably. I would say if we had a 6th, it would've been doable but definitely not ideal. WE did end up bringing another tent just for our gear though. I would recommend this if you have a sled to bring in on the expedition (like we did), are car camping, or if you aren't going very far. The tent weighs quite a bit but aside from that, it is a great tent.



    Feel free to reach out to me for any 4 season tent questions at all.

    Big Agnes Flying Diamond Tent Series

    With more square footage than one Big Agnes staffer’s Steamboat apartment, the Flying Diamond series of shelters are much more than standard tents. They are Everest base camp dining rooms, buttoned up Black Rock City roosts and Vedauwoo wind refuges. The Flying Diamond series is our biggest base camping design. Try one as an all-season two room condo with plenty of space to stretch out and relax or as a place to serve pancakes to the entire family. (note: last years colors shown in video, otherwise all features the same as this years model)
