Big Agnes's Happy Hooligan tents are truly free standing, spacious, well designed and stable, with a full mesh inner they are ideal for backpacking trips in warmer conditions such as 3 season alpine routes.
Big Agnes says: When it comes to backpacking, Big Agnes is known as the Mother of Comfort and the Happy Hooligan is a truly comfortable option in the ultralight backpacking category in both function, design, and affordability. The two door/two vestibule design, lightweight mesh body, and easy to pitch design make this tent a great option for backcountry travelers who don't want to compromise on a few comforts while sleeping in the dirt.
Big Agnes's Happy Hooligan UL Tents have a full mesh inner tent making them most suitable for backpacking in warmer conditions - ideal for summer alpine routes - the full mesh inner offers the best ventilation option although when its windy the wind tends to whistle through the tent.
They are truly freestanding with a wishbone hub at either end - the Happy Hooligan tents also incorporate velcro wraps that tie the flysheet seams into the poleset - working with the guyout points these three features ensure maximum stability when the wind gets up.
With two doors and identical porches the tents offer comfort and flexibility especially on the two person model, with good internal volume and plenty of storage at such a low weight these tents are at the forefront in terms of design and materials. Not sure where the name comes from though.
