Big Agnes Earns Green Gear of the Year
In Outside Magazine’s 2007 Buyer’s Guide, Big Agnes’ Emerald Mountain SL2 tent was honored with a Gear of the Year award. The Emerald Mountain SL3 tent won Best All-Around and Editors’ Choice from Backpacker in its respective March 2007 Gear Guide and April issues. These tents combine the benefits of their lightest free-standing tents with roomy interiors and two opposing doors and vestibules. In February, the SeedHouse SL2 tent was awarded an Editors’ Choice from Blue Ridge Outdoors.
Also featured as a recipient of Green Gear of the Year in Outside Magazine’s Buyer’s Guide is the Big Agnes Battle Mountain -15° sleeping bag. The Battle Mountain features Bamboo Charcoal Synthetic Insulation, an eco-friendly, synthetic insulation derived from bamboo. Big Agnes is also one of the first tent manufacturers to develop tents with DAC Featherlite NSL Poles, which are anodized using the most environmentally friendly process available. These poles are used in the acclaimed Emerald Mountain SL and Seedhouse SL tent series.
