Big Agnes Salt Creek SL2 Tent


For the backpacker who doesn't want to sacrifice their comfort just to drop a few extra grams, Big Agnes created the Salt Creek SL2 Tent. This lightweight backpacking tent comes equipped with everything you need to make tent life a breeze including plenty of interior pockets, incredible room on the inside so you and your partner can have plenty of personal space, and tall enough ceilings that you can actually sit up without hitting your head. When the weather takes a turn for the worse, the Salt Creek is simple to pitch thanks to the 4-way DAC hubbed pole system, while the side vestibules with storm flaps ensure that none of your gear gets left out in the rain. Once the skies clear, prop open the front of the fly awning-style, and leave the front entry door open for easy access to the tent or added ventilation when you need to cool things off. Add your air mattress, sleeping bag, and some mtnGLO tent lights (sold separately) to give you overhead lighting at the touch of a button, and you might just find yourself selling your house to live in the Salt Creek full time.
