    cabelas new xpg ul tent

    Has anyone checked out this new ul tent by cabelas? i have been looking for a ul tent this fall and seen that new xpg in the new cabelas magazine $399. I had my eyes set on the big agnes fly creek ul 3, and can get it for $240 with out the foot print and the cabelas comes with the footprint. the big agnes footprint is $70 so i would still be cheaper with the BA but was wondering what your guys thoughts are between the two. Thanks guys

    Between the two I would definitely choose the big agnes.

    Listen to Grantbvfd.....

    Use Tyvek for a footprint; its lighter and cheaper.

    Weird this conversation popped up, I have been looking at this tent a lot today. My FIL has his heart set on the XPG ul3 so I decided to look in to it more. He is a diehard Cabelas guy so he is hard to sway but I always try. This tent seems pretty impressive with its size and weight (3lb 12oz) for a 3 man. It's labeled as 3 season and looks pretty tough so I have been impressed so far. I was curious as well to see what guys on here thought but I figured a Cabelas brand tent wouldn't be super popular with the hardcore guys. Apparently it was on sale a couple of weeks ago for $350 which seems like a good price for the tent if you can find a sale. Coming with the footprint and gear rack seems like a nice plus.

    BTW where can you get a BA ul3 for only $240? That's a screaming deal.

    I would make the decision depending on how close to the store you are. For either the Big Agnes or the Cabela's. If I lived close to a Cabela's I would go with theirs because if they put their name on a product they stand behind it. I have never had an issue returning a product to Cabela's for any reason especially if their name is on the product. That being said, if your closer to a store that sells the Big Agnes I would chose that one if they have good customer service. I know we buy products and don't want to think about having problems with them, but if you do, I feel it is always easier to bring it in to a store for a return than shipping it back.

    With that being said, I have not had any experience with Big Agnes products.

    Reading the one review that was made on the Cabela's tent would probably steer me away from it now.
    Although I would consider having a tent with a side door versus front. I don't know if your using it for 3 people and thinking side door you would be crawling over someone, but I don't think there is anyway of not disturbing someone in a 3 person tent if one wants out. Just my thoughts.

    They just re-did the XPG line, the new ones have a front door. All the reviews out there on the backpacking sites are from the older models.
