Tent and Footprint Cleaning and Care Instructions:
Always make sure your tent is dry and free of debris before storing. Fold and roll your tent a different way each time to avoid permanent creases. Store in a cool, dry place. Never leave your tent in hot temperatures (such as a car trunk or attic space) for long periods of time, as it will damage the material coatings. Storing your tent damp can result in mildew growth, which may cause your tent to smell, leak, or delaminate. Mildew damage is not covered under warranty.
For light cleaning, sponge the product with warm water (not hot).
For more thorough cleaning you will need:
-Wash basin (or bath tub)-Warm water (not hot)
-Waterproof Gear Cleaner (we recommend products like Nikwax Tech Wash)
1. Submerge your gear in warm, clean water. Gently agitate with hands. Empty dirty water. Repeat until most of the excess dirt/grime is removed and water is mostly clear.
2. Apply waterproof gear specific wash and gently work into fabric with sponge.
3. Rinse gear thoroughly.
4. Hang it up to dry.
5. Triple check that your gear is completely dry before storage or use.
*Do not dry clean or machine-wash. Detergents and dry cleaning solvents will damage the fabric and ruin waterproofing.
*Never use hot water, bleach, liquid detergents, or dishwashing liquids.
*Allow to dry COMPLETELY before storage or use.
*Avoid prolonged direct sunlight as UV exposure can compromise waterproofing.
Big Agnes tents are seam sealed as part of our manufacturing process! This seam tape alone is durable enough to prevent water leakage. Any seams that have been taped do not need to be seam sealed with a liquid sealer unless you want extra protection. Make sure the seam-sealer is completely dry before re-packing your tent. Damage caused by misapplication may void warranty.
Keeping your zippers clean will help keep the coils and sliders from wearing out. If filled with dirt, vacuum or brush zippers before storing tent. We recommend Gear Aid Zipper Cleaner and Lubricant.
Repairs and Warranty:
All Big Agnes tents are guaranteed against manufacturing or material defect. We do not warranty products damaged from normal wear and tear, alteration made by owner, misuse, accidents or damages caused by uses other than intended. Damage due to misuse, normal wear and tear, or improper care may be repaired, at the discretion of Big Agnes, at a reasonable charge. Tents returned for repair must be clean and free of debris.
1. Remove contents from stuff sack. Spread out the tent body.
2. Stake out the four corners of the tent body.
3. UL2, 3, 4 & 5 assemble the two poles: One main pole with a 4-way hub and one short straight crossover pole. UL1 assemble one main pole with two hubs and an attached crossover pole. To ensure each pole section is fully seated insert each pole section into the next by hand, instead of allowing the shock cord to snap them together.
4. Position the assembled main pole on top of the tent body. Match the colors of the pole ends with the matching colors of the webbing on the tent body.
5. Insert the pole tips into the grommets at the four corners of the tent.
6. Attach the plastic clips on the tent body to the main pole.
7. UL2, 3, 4 & 5 place the crossover pole across the top of the main pole. The crossover pole on UL1 is already attached to the main pole.
8. Clip the ends of the crossover pole into the clear plastic “Ball Cap” clips that are located above the doors of the tent body. UL2 & 3 attached the center plastic clip on the tent body to the crossover pole.
9. Drape the rainfly over the tent body and match the colors of the webbing on the fly with the webbing on the body.
10. Insert the tips of the crossover pole into the small pockets located on the underside of the fly.
11. Attach all Velcro® tabs on the underside of the fly to the corresponding pole sections for best stability.
12. Make sure the webbing at the corners of the rainfly is completely slackened. Attach the buckles on the rainfly to those on the tent body.
13. Tighten the webbing on each buckle as needed to keep the rainfly taut.
14. Stake out the vestibules then stake out all remaining guylines.
15. Low Vent Set Up: For increased ventilation, hook the cord located at the bottom of the vestibule door to the toggle at the top of the zipper located on the underside of the fly.
16. Awning Set Up: Unzip the two zippers at the head-end of the tent, attach extra guylines (included in stake bag) to corner cord loops, adjust trekking poles to desired height, insert trekking pole tips through grosgrain loop or cord loop on corners of panel. Stake out guylines.
Separate 6” length pole segment included for emergency field repair. Slide repair pole over the break to act as a splint. Secure splint in place with tape.
