Seedhouse SL1 Tent

The Seedhouse SL Tent is a backpackers favorite for peak-baggers and bike packers alike. It can weigh under two pounds with the fast fly option, and can retain the versatile protection and simple comforts that campers require. Big Agnes equipped it with DAC's ever-popular Pressfit poles with Angle Hubs and plastic clips for a simple and quick setup. There are 11 stakes, webbing, and reflective guylines that prevent you from tripping throughout the night. Multiple mesh pockets organize tiny essentials, and there's one with a media port so you can listen to your nightly sleep sounds as you snooze, but we'd recommend relying on nature's symbiotic melodies instead.

  • Angle hub pole system increases interior space and headroom
  • Reflective guylines and webbing help you find your tent at night

Good Tent

I was looking for a lite weight single person tent. (2.2 lbs with stakes and ground and rain cover). This tent does the job, but I wish I did more research. Optimally, the tent is designed to be used with stakes, which you can set up without, but it works better with the corners tied down, which takes a couple of minutes more. If you're on hard, frozen ground or on rocks however, tying down the tent is difficult or impossible. Also, and more importantly, this is a two season tent; it protects against rain and wind with the rain and ground cover but there are no insulating properties. The tent is mostly mesh, which is great for ventilation in warm weather, but in an unexpected cold snap, without proper clothes and sleeping bag, there is way to heat up the inside of the tent and you will freeze. Bottom line, I like the tent but I don't hike in the spring or summer due to bugs and ticks. Will be looking for a 3 or 4 season single person tent next. I also wish the vestibule was larger.
