The Big Agnes Tiger Wall UL 2 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:

Three season, free standing, crazylight tents featuring Easton® carbon fiber poles and Dyneema® Composite Fabrics.

If you could snap your fingers and the lightest, most packable two-door tent of your dreams would appear before you, this would be it. Designed with the lightest-weight materials available; Easton® carbon pole set and Dyneema® Composite Fabrics - an extremely strong and dynamic fiber that is both highly tear resistant as well as fully waterproof. This tent is any ultralight-weight traveler's dream. These products are intended for only the most advanced user. Although extremely strong for their weight, these tents are not indestructible and require careful use to decrease the possibility of damage. Special care during setup and extended trips is important as rough handling, long-term abrasion, exposure to sharp objects or rocky campsite selection may result in fabric punctures and tears. We highly recommend using tent footprints with these tents to improve durability. Self-adhesive repair patches are included in the event that repairs must be made on the trail.

Big Agnes' Tiger Wall 2 Carbon with Dyneema Tent, gives an ultralight makeover to the successful Tiger Wall design. It has a minimalist pole structure which makes it Big Agnes's lightest 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. It's basically a successful mix of both designs.

The super thin and strong Dyneema fabric and Carbon fibre poles is what trims over 400g of the weight compared to the regular Tiger Wall

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.

The flip side of the astonishingly low weight of the tent is need to take extra care against abrasion, though the dyneema fabric felt much tougher than I expected but if you want to the tent to last watch out for sharp objects when pitching. We and Big Agnes recommend using a footprint.
