The Big Agnes Tiger Wall 3 Platinum is an ultralight, three season, free standing tent. It blends two of their best backpacking designs (the popular Copper Spur and Fly Creek) into one intriguing ultralight package.
Big Agnes says:
The Tiger Wall Platinum tents take two-door tent life to a crazylight new level. Two doors, two vestibules, free standing and with tons of extras you've come to love on our full-featured tents - like pre-cut guylines, color-coded webbing, buckles and storage pockets. It's quick and easy to setup in the dark, in a storm, or by yourself. For weight-conscious backcountry travelers, this is the ultimate overnight companion.
The Big Agnes Tiger Wall UL series of tents has a minimalist pole structure which makes it Big Agnes's lightest three man two door backpacking tent. If your comparing it to other Big Agnes tents, it sits somewhere between the Fly Creek HV UL and the Copper Spur HV UL in terms of weight and and price. It's basically a successful mix of both designs. The Platinum version uses the lightest fabrics.
The Tiger Wall has a similar frame system to the Fly Creek, except with the added cross pole across the top which makes it feel more spacious. The Tiger Wall features two doors and vestibules similar to the Copper Spur but without the extra weight. We would say the Tiger Wall gives you the best of both tents and at a price point that sits nicely in-between.
For a two man tent weighing 1096g, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that you might sacrifice on durability. The tent has a 15-denier floor and rainfly, which is extremely thin and should be treated with care - and used with a footprint on most occasions to extend its lifespan.
