7. Big Agnes Tiger Wall: Best Semi-Freestanding Tent

10 Best Backpacking Tents of 2024-Trip Advise

If you and a friend are looking for an all-around solid, ultra-light two-person tent, then the Tiger Wall by Big Agnes is definitely worth checking out. This tent is exceptionally easy to haul for long trips as it only weighs two pounds, eight ounces. It achieves this low weight because of its semi-freestanding design and thin material.


This semi-freestanding setup means the tent pole connects part-way on one side of the tent, and stakes are required to pull the tent out to its full size.

While this setup may not be as easy as fully-freestanding designs, it does cut down on the overall weight.


The tent also features a full mesh wall, instead of the standard part-mesh and part-nylon design. This produces noticeably improved ventilation, while the generous fly design provides enough space for pack storage for two people.


This tent is roomy enough that you won’t feel claustrophobic as you try to sleep. I’m not suggesting this tent’s a palace, but it isn’t the smallest tent on the market either. It splits space right down the middle and passes the savings on to you. This means it’s an excellent middle-of-the-road design.
