Price Paid: $250
I motorcycle and bicycle camp, so I was looking for something that would pack down small with a large vestibule. The green color, all mesh tent body, vented fly, and extremely high quality were all pluses.
This is my first tent with a side door and I like it. You don't get out of your bed by climbing over the pillow, this is much more civilized, though it does take acclimating to find the right spot sometimes because of the side door.
It's worth noting I think that the floor layout has a little outward bulge which is quite useful and BA doesn't illustrate it. I set up an MSR Hubba and it was just not big enough, but this is just right!

If bivy sacks make you claustrophobic and you like the idea of having a vestibule, then take along the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL Solo Tent when you backpack. This lightweight tent gives you plenty of room to move around as well as a spot to stash your pack and muddy boots during a downpour. When the sun comes out, pull off the Emerald Solo's rain fly and enjoy the breeze without the bugs through the mesh walls and door. The hub-and-pole design makes setup easy, and the DAC Featherlite poles combine durability and a low weight. Plus, DAC made these poles for Big Agnes with an eco-friendly process that eliminates the need for two toxic chemicals and recycles wastewater.
The Emerald Mountain is Big Agnes' original superlight tent. At 2 lbs 6 oz (fast fly weight) this tent will give you better things to worry about than weight...like how to keep your food away from the bears. The EM SL1 uses the DAC featherlight poles to reduce weight and increase durability on the trail. If you pick up the optional vestibule along with the tent you might decide to sell your house because this spacious solo tent will seem like a home away from home.Features: Three season, free standing, superlight backpacking tent DAC Featherlite NSL pole system with press fit connectors, and lightweight hubs - featuring eco-friendly anodizing All DAC poles made from TH72M aluminum: the latest technology in lightweight tent poles featuring improved durability New HClip attaches tent body to cross pole Fly and floor are lightweight silicone treated nylon rip-stop with a 1200mmwaterproof polyurethane coating Tent body is lightweight nylon and polyester mesh Mesh body offers excellent ventilation Hub/pole design makes set up quick and easy DAC Twist Clips attach tent body to the pole frame for quick and easy set-up Interior mesh pockets Reflective guyline and reflective webbing on tent corners for nighttime visibility All seams taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane (No PVC or VOC's) tape 9 Superlight aluminum J stakes featuring eco-friendly anodizing - included 3 Superlight aluminum J stakes featuring eco-friendly anodizing - included with accessory vestibule Tent stuff sack features external mesh pocket and strap to secure poles Optional extra large, zip-on front vestibule sold separately Gear loft loops included: Fits Big Agnes WALL gear loft - sold separately FOOTPRINT INCLUDED (Big Agnes' specific footprint) Specs: Trail Weight 3lb 4oz Packed Weight 3lb 10oz Footprint Weight 7oz Fast Fly Weight 2lb 6oz Packed Size 7" x 19" Floor Area 22sq ft Vestibule Area 10sq ft Head Height 37"

Big Agnes offers optional, extra large accessory vestibules for a palatial storage area.
