To extend the life of your tent floor, we recommend using a Big Agnes footprint. The Big Agnes footprint also enables you to pitch a lightweight, Fast Fly shelter while leaving the tent body behind. The Fast Fly configuration requires the footprint, tent fly, poles, and stakes.
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 and spread out the tent body over your desired camp site.
2. Stake out the four corners of the tent and front webbing harness before assembling the pole set.
3. Assemble the poles: one large main pole set with hub and a single straight pole.
4. 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.
5. Insert the pole tips of the main pole set with hub into the grommets at the back corners of the tent body and the front corners of the webbing harness. Orient the main pole so the shorter sections with pre bent poles are inserted into the webbing harness which makes up the oversized vestibule.
6. Insert the single straight pole tips into the grommets at the front sides of the tent body, matching the pole color with the webbing on the tent body. This pole will wrap around the back of the main tent body.
7. Connect the single pole to the locking hubs (Swivel TLH) on the main pole set and ensure that the plastic ring is fully seated into the locking hubs before closing them.
8. Find the molded H-clips located above the front door of the tent body and connect them to the corresponding clips (S Stopper) on the main pole set.
9. Connect the other two H-clips on the tent body to the bottom attachment on both locking hubs (Swivel TLH).
10. Working your way around the perimeter of the tent, connect the remaining clips to the corresponding pole sections.
11. At this point you will have a free-standing structure.
12. Drape the rainfly over the tent body and match the colors of the webbing on the fly with the webbing on the body.
13. Attach all Velcro® straps on the underside of the fly to the corresponding poles. The Velcro® straps are located beneath the guyout points and should all be properly secured to im-prove overall structural integrity.
14. Make sure the webbing at the corners of the fly is completely slackened. Attach the buckles on the corners of fly to those on the tent body and front of the webbing harness.
15. Tighten the webbing on each buckle as needed to keep the fly taut.
16. Stake out the back vestibule door.
17. Stake out all guylines and adjust as needed to take the remaining slack out of the guylines.
18. Enjoy your Wyoming Trail 2 tent!
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.
FAST FLY SET UP INSTRUCTIONS:
If you purchase the optional Big Agnes footprint for your Wyoming Trail, it will enable you to pitch a Fast Fly shelter while leaving the tent body behind. The Fast Fly configuration requires the footprint, rainfly, poles and stakes.
1. Lay the footprint on the ground and stake out.
2. Assemble the poles: one large main pole with hub, and one single 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.
3. Position the main pole with hub on top of the footprint, aligning it so the shorter sections with pre bent poles are at the narrower end which corresponds with the oversized vestibule. The locking hubs (Swivel TLH) on the main pole will be positioned at the opposite end.
4. Insert the pole tips into the grommets at the four corners of the footprint.
5. Insert the pole tips of the single straight pole into the grommets at the sides of the footprint, matching the pole color with the webbing on the footprint. Orient the pole so that it crosses over the main pole structure that is already set up, aligning with the locking hubs (Swivel TLH) on the main pole.
6. Attach this pole into the locking hubs (Swivel TLH), ensuring that the plastic ring is fully seated into the hubs before closing them.
7. Drape the rainfly over the standing poles, aligning it so that the color-coded buckles on the fly match up with the color coded webbing on the footprint.
8. Attach all the Velcro® loops on the underside of the fly to the corresponding poles for the best stability.
9. Make sure the webbing at the corners of the rainfly is completely slackened. Attach the buckles on the rainfly to those on the footprint.
10. Evenly tension the webbing on each corner as needed to keep the rainfly taut. This will also help keep the poles in place.
11. Stake out the smaller vestibule.
12. Stake out all guylines.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR TENT SET UP
Our tents are easy to set up but we suggest you practice once at home before using them for the first time to avoid late night bickering with tent mates while fumbling around in the dark.
Before pitching tent, clear campsite of debris that may pierce tent floor.
We recommend staking out all corners, vestibules and guylines to increase space and ventilation. Securely staking out your tent and all guylines is crucial to maintaining the structural integrity of your tent.
Hang onto your stuff sacks or they’ll blow away and create backcountry litter.
Pull on the pole sleeve fabric when inserting poles to avoid any bunching in the material.
Push rather than pull poles through pole sleeves.
Thanks for choosing a Big Agnes tent!

What's in a Name?
Rich in pioneering history, the Wyoming Trail is a portion of the Continental Divide Trail running near the boundary of the Mount Zirkel Wilderness area. Unfortunately one of the locations put on the map during the Sheep Wars that took place between 1870 and 1920, this now peaceful area is still used by ranchers for grazing cattle and sheep. These days the trail is more fondly known for breathtaking vistas, hearty hikes, and great mountain biking.
