The Big Agnes Seedhouse SL3 is a three season, free standing, three man tent designed for lightweight backpacking and bike touring.

Big Agnes says:

Three season, free standing, superlight tents.

Seedhouse SL tents have become the signature series in our backpacking line, pieces of gear to stand the test of time. Like a gin martini or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, Seedhouse SL tents are simple, efficient and classic. If it's your cross-country bike tour or the weekend peak you've been looking to bag, the Seedhouse will forever be faithful. Improvements include steeper side walls and a dry entry vestibule.

Big Agnes have updated their design and managed to increase the usable interior space without increasing the tents weight. They have also improved this years model by adding a dry entry vestibule which helps to keep the interior of the tent dry as you enter and exit in wet conditions.

Unlike many other ultra-lightweight tents, the Seedhouse series is freestanding, so it's easy to set up and easy to position into the ideal location after it's been pitched. They're constructed using a DAC Pressfit pole system with lightweight Angle hubs that attach to the tent body with plastic clips for a quick and easy set up.

The vestibule is not as large compared to other Big Agnes tents but there's enough space to keep your rucksack and boots dry, and to cook up some grub with a small stove. You can sleep 3 in the Seedhouse SL3 though it is quite cosy. Some people may prefer to use this as a two person tent with more space for sleeping and storing gear. But it does have sufficient space to sleep three with gear in the vestibule.
