Big Agnes Salt Creek SL 2

Big Agnes

Whenever we’re getting out for a few days and sharing a tent with a partner or multiple partners, having two doors is high on our must-have list. The Salt Creek does one better than that, incorporating a third door to add even more versatility and make getting in and out of the tent that much more convenient. It basically provides the freestanding, double-wall tent with a front gear closet which frees up interior space while keeping anything and everything you might want from your pack in easy reach. You can even pitch the front door in an awning style to let in extra light and cooling air when conditions cooperate. There are lighter weight options out there for backpackers, but the Salt Creek still checks in well under 4 pounds, a weight that we can easily justify for the additional space and comfort.  Need room for another backpacking partner?  Check out the Salt Creek SL 3.

Best Use: Backpacking and Camping
