User Review: Big Agnes Seedhouse SL1
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200
I have had this tent for two years and have used it extensively in Pennsylvania and in all types of weather. It is a great little tent that should last you many years!
- Roomy - inside
- Small vestibule
- Can be difficult to get in/out
Setup: Easy and quick. I can have it set up in about 5 minutes. Since it is a SL1, you only need a small clearing to fit your tent.
Stability: Is very stable as long as you stake it down. It has seen wind, rain and snow. Since the sides are very steep, the snow slides right off with out any issues.
Weather resistance: Keeps it out even in the tough Pennsylvania weather conditions.
Ventilation: Is average...nothing great. I am a heavy breather and it will collect condensation in the inside....nothing too extreme though.
Room and Storage: Plenty of room for yourself and some of your gear. I can sit up with out any issues ( I am 5'10") The vestibule is small and would maybe fit a very small pack. You could possibly keep you pack in the tent with you, but it would be tight. It can be difficult to get in and out at first. I usually slide in feet first. You just need to figure out which is best for you. Remember this is a 1-person tent..made to be lightweight. If you want more room, go with the SL2.
Packability: Just stuff it and go! No need to fold. Small and lightweight.
Ease of use: My five-year-old can set it up!
Features: Everything you need!
Construction and Durability: I love Big Agnes products! My dad brother and I all have this tent. We use them hard.....Take care of them and they will last many many years of use!
