Best For: The Big Agnes Slater UL2 is a minimalist, three-season shelter best for backpackers who favor weight over space, and, due to its mesh-free walls, desert and beach campers.

The freestanding Big Agnes Slater UL2+ is a minimalist shelter with one door and vestibule. Like the popular Fly Creek UL series, the Slater is designed to be a light and fast shelter (2 lb 9 oz), but with added floor space for you and your gear. A Fast Fly option (1 lb 14 oz) utilizes the poles and fly with an accessory Fast Fly footprint.

The Slater UL’s fly and floor are made from ripstop nylon with a silicone treatment and have a 1200mm waterproof polyurethane coating. Seams are taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (PVC- and VOC-free).

The Slater is designed with no mesh on its ripstop nylon walls, to help keep out wind and sand when at the desert or beach. Support comes from the DAC Featherlite NSL pole system. Attach the tent’s body to the frame with DAC Twist Clips.

The Slater UL2+ features storm flaps on the vestibule zipper and reflective guylines and webbing at the corners. For added ventilation, close the door with just the zip-up mesh door, or add the polyester layer for more warmth.

Inside are three mesh pockets and loops to add a gear loft. Eleven Superlight aluminum J stakes are included to secure your tent.

The shelter is also available in the Slater UL1+ model.
