Whether you're backpacking backcountry or camping with the kids, Big Agnes has award-winning tents, sleeping bags and pads just right for you. Wonder why we called our company Big Agnes? The answer you receive depends on who you talk with and the mood we're in.
Honestly, it's either a rocky peak in the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness Area outside Steamboat Springs, a laid back mountain town mama or dependable backcountry gear. We think it represents a little bit of each and everything in between.
We've spent a lot of time in the local backcountry so we feel downright connected to it. We name our products after local history, places, peaks and rivers which is always a fun process. It brings back memories of trips both successful and epic and hopefully inspires you to come explore.
Ticks all my boxesBy: David Saunders on 5 June 2018I have been using my Tumble 1 for about a year. It has withstood heavy rain and gale force wind with no problems at all. The set up is very easy and the ability to pitch the fly first using the footprint has been very useful on rainy days. Drafts are minimal. I am happy with its higher weight, given the better durability. The Mountain Glo lights are still working and while not bright enough to read by, allow me to find things in the dark.

Lightish, tough and very very roomy!By: Alex on 20 February 2017I purchased this as I've been looking for a one man tent with a side entry for sometime - and I am moving away from my obsession for being lightweight! I did once own a BigAgnes Fly Creek UL1, but found that to be a bit constrictive and I wanted a side entrance and more durable feeling materials. I also looked at the Copper Spur UL1, but again the size and the apparent flimsiness of the materials was not to my liking. This tent may weigh 1.7kg (on my scales with 6 pegs), not particularly lightweight for a one man tent, but I consider it a minimal weight gain for the space and the durability of the materials. So, to the Tumble 1 - the space inside is fantastic. I am 6 foot 2 inches and broad, and had plenty of room. I was even able to bring my pack (Sierra Designs Flex Capacitor - large size) inside and have it behind my head (party used as a pillow). Only my boots and walking pole remained in he vestibule overnight. I could sit up, get changed etc. with no fear of pressing the inner tent against the flysheet. There are also a plethora (6) of inside pockets for placing small items such as phone, glasses, torch, snacks etc. I don't think I've ever been able to feel so organised in a tent. The inner tent is a mixture of sheer nylon and mesh and provides good ventilation - but the nylon goes high enough to cut direct breeze onto you when you are sleeping. This is labelled as a three season tent, but in sheltered conditions I'd be happy to use this in winter. We had temperatures down to -2c and some moderate winds when I used this and I felt as secure as comfortable as I have in a designated four season tent. The flysheet is robust and allows for a vestibule that was big enough for me to (carefully) cook under using my pocket rocket stove whilst I sat in the inner tent during a short downpour. It seems nicely thick and I had no issues with water ingress or with splash back under the fly. The Mountain-glow feature was a real bonus - the light spread was perfectly adequate to do everything by and I especially liked the fact that I could leave my tent lit up whilst I ventured out as it made finding my tent and getting back in much easier than returning to a dark tent. There are two light level settings. As mentioned earlier, whilst not the lightest of one person tents, I believe that the extra weight (approx 660g over the Copper Spur UL1 for example) is well worth it for the extra space, tougher materials and increased hydro-static head. Set up is a breeze and took me under 2 mins first time - without looking at any instructions. The tent packs down nice a small and fit easily inside my pack. Thoroughly recommended.
