The Big Agnes Big House 4 is a family style 4 person dome tent with 1 door and the option to add a vestibule should you so desire. It has ample mesh panels for ventilation and the fly covers all but the front door which has a Storm Flap so you know you will be dry. The shockcorded aluminum frame is strong and reliable and very simple to erect. The Big House can be used as a family tent or a base camping tent or even a canoe trip home. It is versatile and reliable, it's a Big Agnes. And if it gets really hot you can roll up the fly walls for better ventilation.

        Comments about Big Agnes - Big House 4 Tent:

        I'm a 57-year-old woman who bought this tent after some research and used it for the first time for a week-long archaeology dig in the south Texas desert. I practiced setting it up alone before I left, but was not prepared for the high winds encountered during the late afternoon set up.

        Still, I managed to get it set up without help although the fly was a challenge. I am sure my 5'10" height helped and I'm in reasonably good shape. Otherwise, I might have struggled under these conditions. Anyone should be able to set it up in calm weather without any problems.

        Under such windy conditions the measly stakes included with the tent were 100% worthless. If I hadn't thrown in a bag of extra large homemade heavy duty stakes I couldn't have used the tent at all. There were strong winds daily and sometimes all night as well for the next six days and everything held up perfectly with the more substantial stakes, which were also used for the fly guylines.

        I am a bit dissatisfied with the way the side middle areas of the tent floor are lifted off the ground once the tent is set up, even when it's staked down. I acknowledge I might be doing something incorrectly but I haven't looked into that yet.

        About the inside space: it is called a four-person tent, but four adults and their stuff would be impossibly cramped. Four small children would be okay. I was alone and the space was perfect, but I took a lot of extra stuff because I had the room. I would say that this tent is good for no more than two average sized adults, two adults and one small child, or some other equivalent arrangement.

        Ventilation: great ventilation, but a couple of nights were in the 40s and there was no way to zip up the rather large net openings on four sides of the tent. The fly covers the tent and reaches almost to ground level so privacy wasn't a concern, but it would have been wonderful to be able to close up those open sides when it was cold. When the nights were warm, however, it was fine.

        Overall I'm pleased with this tent's performance despite some design issues that I would change.

                Comments about Big Agnes - Big House 4 Tent:

                My girls and I slept out and played in this tent in the back yard for 2 weeks and on car camping weekends away. Some pretty good storms and no leaks! Absolutely love the big head space, two shelves, assorted pockets and mostly the fact that the rain fly comes all the way down when you need it down but easily rolls up half way to enjoy more light, fresh air and a view without removing the whole thing.
