BIG AGNES Tiger Wall UL2 is an ultralight, three season, free standing tent. This tent combines the best features and designs from both popular tents from Big Agnes Copper Spur and Fly Creek into one ultralight shelter. Tiger Wall gives you the best of both tents at a good price. The DAC minimalist pole architecture creates a strong structure that is light yet spacious.
The Tiger Wall UL weighs 992g on the trail. It's sure to become your favorite go-to backpacking shelter without having to compromise weight or space.
The tent has a 15-denier floor and rainfly, which is extremely thin and should be treated with care We recommend to use a footprint to extend its lifespan. Big Agnes did increase tear resistance by adding a silicone treatment to the solid fabric, but you can’t get around the fact that is made with ultralight fabrics and components and must be treated with extra care for long-term durability.
Each person in this two-men tent has their own exit and entry and place to store there a gear. The dual entry door design paired with storm flaps on the vestibule zippers keep your tent dry as you enter and exit. Low Vent feature on the vestibule doors allows for more air flow while still providing maximal vestibule coverage. The double sliders on the vestibule zippers allows for venting from the top or bottom.
Each of two vestibules (2x 0.7m²) can store a mid-size pack and boots, or create some cooking space when needed, and exponentially increase the comfort, convenience, and ventilation of an ultralight tent compared to single-door models. The floor area of interior with 2.6m² provides adequate space for 2 backpackers or serves as a roomy shelter for one.
Tiger Wall has vertical side walls providing extra space to move around and 99 cm of head height to sit up in. The inner tent width at the head-end is 132cm, while the foot-end has a width of 107cm, so if you plan to use it for 2 person is better to use tapered shape of sleeping pads.
The interior has a mesh pockets on each side and a large, mesh ceiling pocket to store your headlamp and use it for diffused interior lighting.
Big Agnes says: "The Tiger Wall UL is our lightest two door/two vestibule tent. The two doors make tent life a little easier, and the weight savings is especially nice when out for multi-day and gram counting. Combining simple, yet strong single pole architecture with DAC Featherlite materials, interior storage pockets, and comforts around every corner, these tents are poised to be a backcountry favorite."
