Flying Diamond 8

Flying Diamond 8

Big Agnes

  • $799.95

With more square footage than one Big Agnes staffer's Steamboat apartment, the Flying Diamond series of shelters are much more than standard tents. They are Everest base camp dining rooms, buttoned up Black Rock City roosts, and Vedauwoo wind refuges. The Flying Diamond series is our biggest base camping design. Try one as an all-season, two-room condo with plenty of space to stretch out and relax, or as a place to serve pancakes to the entire family.
