Looking for a superlight, backpacking tent that doesn't make you wake up every hour in a claustrophobic panic? Big Agnes designed the Bird Beak SL1 to be fast, light, and most importantly spacious. An exoskeleton pole design frees up room on the interior so you can bring in your cot, your pup, and that kitchen sink you brought along. With several options for set up including: double wall, 3+ season tent, or shelter-mode you can shave weight by customizing the design to fit your needs for every trip you take it on. Topping it all off, Big Agnes designed this tent so the poles and fly can be assembled before clipping in the main tent body, making assembly a breeze even when an unexpected storm rolls in.
