The opinion of Aventure Nordique
It must be announced right away, the Salt Creek SL2 is not a hiking tent like the others. No wonder it was designed by the innovative company Big Agnes. Indeed, it has 3 doors, while retaining 2 other advantages: lightness and self-supporting.
It has everything to please those who are looking for an original, functional, practical, protective and ventilated shelter. The Salt Creek SL2 may be the tent for you. If you want to take advantage of the outdoors and optimize air circulation, or more precisely limit condensation, its 3 doors should make you look good.
You'll notice the clever awning system that creates an overhang with your 2 walking poles. But you don't have to, if you don't have walking poles! The tent can be used without. In this case, you can open and roll up the double canopy to observe nature. So it's up to you to choose, either the classic mode, 2 side doors, or you want even more and open the front door. All these openings make it easier for the occupants to move around and contribute to the comfort of the bivouac. The 2 side apses keep your equipment dry.
Big Agnes has not forgotten comfort:
- Comfort of assembly with its system of roll bar easy to put in place,
- Spacious interior volume with vertical walls and generous head height.
The Salt Creek 2 can also be used as a tarp version, with only the double roof up. A floor mat for this purpose is available as an option. In this configuration, the weight saving is important, while offering a good level of protection. Installation in warm weather and in "light hiking" mode.
