Here you have my selection of Big Agnes 4 person tents in a variety of shapes and functionality, from camping to backpacking, all built from top quality materials and reliable outdoor shelters.
I am sure there is no need to present Big Agnes as a brand, they are globally known for their tents. Some of them are among the lightest on the market. You will see one example below, a 4-person tent that is in the weight range of 2-person tents.
The list is short on purpose, I am focused on different shapes and styles, but note that some are representatives of series so in reality you have them more.

1. Big Agnes Wyoming Trail 4 Person Tent
Here you have the new version of the tent that has been around for a while. The tent includes two inner floored tents, one large floorless living room in between, and two vestibules.
So this is a large structure that offers 67.5 ft² (6.27 m²) of the floored area, 42 ft² (3.9 m²) in the central room, and 11 + 11 ft² (1 + 1 m²) under the two vestibules. In other words, you have 131.5 ft² (12.16 m²) of the total protected space and this all for 4 people.
Because of so separated rooms, this tent is perfect for couples and for families with kids as it provides the best possible privacy. Note also that you have four doors and an awning setup as well.
The tent is supported with top quality DAC lightweight aluminum poles that include two main long poles plus several shorter loops. The fly and floor are the same polyester taffeta with a 1500 mm waterproof polyurethane coating. As usual with this brand, all seams are taped with a waterproof polyurethane tape.
You have 6 interior mesh pockets in each tent to keep your stuff organized. It comes with a backpack-style carry bag with adjustable shoulder straps, with webbing handles, and a zip closure.
The peak height is 70 inches (178 cm) and the packed size is 25.5 x 16.5 x 9.5 inches (65 x 42 x 24 cm). It weighs 22 lb 5 oz (10.12 kg).
What I like:
- The space.
- Storage elements.
- Quality materials.
What I dislike:
- The price.
2. Big Agnes Big House Group Camping Tent 4 Person
This tent is formally a dome style shelter but its side poles are completely vertical. One extra ridge pole is added so that the doors are also vertical. So it looks more like a cabin tent, and this is a high-volume architecture.
The tent has two doors, and the fly is a partial coverage type so there are no vestibules to store gear. But they have a pole-supported accessory vestibule available. Note also that this is a smaller in the series of two tents, it has the same shape 6-person cousin.
On Amazon they describe it as spacious but the floor area is only 57 ft² (5.3 m²) so this is not really a large area for a camping tent designed for 4 people. But it offers lots of volume because of its design. The tent can be described as a 3-season sheler.
The poles are top quality DAC DA17 lightweight aluminum, the fly and floor are the same polyester with a 1500 mm waterproof polyurethane coating, and all seams are taped. The inner tent is a breathable polyester, coated polyester and a nylon mesh.
Inside you have 4 interior mesh pockets, 2 removable corner bin pockets, and 2 media pockets. There are also multiple interior loops for attaching gear lofts, accessories, and mtnGLO Tent & Camp Lights. The package includes 14 lightweight aluminum hook stakes.
The tent comes with a backpack-style carry bag that is equipped with adjustable shoulder straps, webbing handles, and zip closure.
It offers the Shelter Mode set up with fly, poles and included webbing harness. They have a footprint that can be ordered separately. It weighs 15 oz (425 g). So you can use it instead of the mentioned webbing harness.
Here are a few numbers. The packed weight is 12 lb 14 oz (5.84 kg) so the tent is moderately light. The packed size is 26 x 13 x 7 inches (66 x 33 x 18 cm), and the peak height is 70 inches (178 cm).
What I like:
- Inner volume.
- Ease of use.
- Quality craftsmanship.
What I dislike:
- Small for 4 campers.
3. Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 4 Tent
The letters UL in the name mean ultralight and this is indeed so when you see its weight of only 5 lb 10 oz (2.55 kg). So this is simply incredible for a tent that can accommodate 4 people.
The floor area is 57 ft² (5.3 m²) and this is a bit small, but note also that you have two vestibules for gear that add 14 + 14 ft² (1.3 m² + 1.3 m²) of the protected space. This gives the total protected space and weight ratio of 3.1 m²/kg. Such a value is hard to match.
The tent is the largest in the series of three Copper Spur HV UL tents that includes also a solo tent and a 2-person tent. The peak height is 50 inches (127 cm), and the packed size (L x D) is 21.5 x 5 inches (55 x 13 cm).
The tent is a dome-shape and supported with X-crossed hubbed DAC Featherlite NFL and NSL poles. There is one extra brow pole that pulls the side walls up and creates extra volume. This explains the letters HV in the name of the tent.
Regarding the fabric, the fly and floor are silicone treated (SilNylon) proprietary patterned random rip-stop nylon. This treatment is stronger and more durable than PU-coated materials, and they claim it is stable against UV radiation.
What I like:
- The weight.
- The packed size.
- Excellent features.
What I dislike:
- The price.
So this was my selection of the best Big Agnes 4 person tents, and I hope you realize how very different they all are regarding shape, weight and functionality. But the differences in the floor area are not substantial. All of them are supported with the highest quality aluminum poles from the globally known DAC brand.
With so different designs, it is difficult to choose one tent and put forward as my choice tent. But I have decided to take the tent shown below because of its functionality. Its separated inner tents provide the best possible privacy, and it has so many areas and elements for storage, plus 4 doors and awnings.
Incredibly functional tent and excellent design
