Big Agnes Royal Flush-Kayak Shelters

Big Agnes, Royal Flush
($700, bigagnes.com)
9 lbs., 3P/4S, 47 sq ft, Vestibule 11 sq ft

Another good 3P option.  Good ventilation, light weight, good tie downs, interior lower vents, sufficient pockets.  RF3 is the lightest of the 3P/4S tents reviewed here (by a good margin).  It comes in nearly at the weight of the 3S Gunnison Pro but at over twice the price.  The fly is made from Cordura; it looks like tough, quality nylon but is in fact an ultra light, durable fabric (hence the dramatic weight difference).  In any case, it worked for us as well as the best fly material out there.  I find the shape a little turtle-ish-looking and the burnt-orange color of the fly doesn’t lift the spirit like bright gold.  Small nits about a very good tent overall.  The floor is one of the lightest I’ve seen and might benefit, like the Gunnison, with a footprint.
