User Review: Big Agnes Seedhouse 2
Design: 3 season freestanding
Ease of Setup: very simple indeed
Weight: 3.5 pounds packed
Price Paid: $199
I bought the Seedhouse 2 for its simplicity and ventilation, both are excellent. I was easily able to set up my tent in 4 minutes after unloading my pack. I was able to set up my tent, un-roll my sleeping bag and start making lunch while the rest of the group was staking and guying out their tarps.
I shared this tent with my hiking buddy and while it was slightly cramped for two adults it wasn't uncomfortable. We slept shoulder to shoulder because of its tapered design but once we were cinched up in our bags neither of us were bothered by the other during the night.
Good weather was forecast so I left the rain fly off and enjoyed the night sky. Ventilation is still good with rain fly on though, no condensation in the tent or on the fly.
The tent is slightly heavier than I like but packs down fairly compact when you don't us the bag it came in.
