Impressive, most impressive

I've been using a tiny bivy solo for years and the Fly Creek looked so luxurious in size and was actually lighter so I had to give it a whirl. Price is insane for a solo tent, I snagged one on sale and got mine a hundred bucks cheaper which lessened the blow and convinced me to finally get it. By far the most spacious solo tent I've used, it fits me and my full grown boxer pooch, or me and my 5 year old son comfortably, or all of us a little crowded. In crowded campsites the front door setup with the vestibule lets me sit up with my legs hanging out and change without flashing anyone, and is roomy enough for my boots and other gear. I had serious concerns with the lightweight material holding up, especially since I put a hole in the pole bag the first time I put the tent away. Mostly camping in the desert southwest, there is no such thing as a campsite free of rocks or debris as most manufacturers tell you to set their tents up. After many trips now setting it up on rocky gravel areas, even with my dogs paws stomping around in it with me, and a few trips with no ground sheet, the tent has no rips or holes. It has held up in 40 mph winds no problem. I have yet to test it in the rain. What I love as much as the lack of weight is the size it packs down to, it's crazy small. The only complaint is the need to stake the corners at the feet to get the full amount of space. It still counts as freestanding but I'd trade the ounce or two weight of little legs coming off the pole to make it fully freestanding to keep me from trying to pound stakes into the desert floor. Overall, money well spent, and light enough that I never have to second guess whether or not I want to haul a tent or chance the elements.
