Big Agnes says:
New to backpacking or in the market for a high quality, technical tent without breaking the bank? The C Bar 2 and 3 person tents are a lightweight shelter option designed to be roomy with DAC Angle hubs and a cross pole on the top. There's a single front entry door with a vestibule to store gear, an oversized ceiling pocket, plus three mesh pockets that are great for stashing odds and ends, while the durable, waterproof fly and floor will keep you dry when the skies turn grey.
The Big Agnes C Bar series of tents are freestanding, so they're easy to set up and easy to position into the ideal location after they've been pitched. They're constructed using a DAC Pressfit pole system with lightweight Angle hubs that attach to the tent body with plastic clips for a quick and easy set up. The single pole architecture is even colour coded too to make it even easier. The cross pole on the tent pole creates a spacious interior, so sitting up to change or eat won't feel like challenge.
The vestibule is not as large compared to other Big Agnes tents but there's enough space to keep your rucksack and boots dry, and to cook up some grub with a small stove. Inside the tent there' a quick stash door keeper which makes stowing the unzipped door quick and easy, with plenty of interior mesh pockets for keeping kit at a close reach.
The C Bar tents have all the technical features we love from Big Agnes and at a price we love even more.
