    Details

    Ridiculously light and extravagantly spacious.

    By definition, the solo backpacker gets stuck with all the gear, but cut yourself a break with the ultralight Big Agnes Fly Creek 1 Platinum HV Tent, a freestanding shelter with a high-volume design that lightens your load without sacrificing an inch of living space in the process. An all-mesh body ventilates and provides a view of the stars, and the silicone- and PU-treated fly acts like a hostile bouncer, turning water away before it can get in the door and cause trouble. Zipper storm flaps and fully taped seams give it some back up, too, because moisture's a sneaky, two-timing no good customer.

    Of course, the biggest feature that the Fly Creek has is actually what it doesn't have: weight. It checks in at a mere, a ridiculous, and an unbelievable 1lb 7oz, more than a half-pound lighter than a quart of water, and if you're really feeling like going ultra-ultra-light, you can ditch the tent body, bringing just the hub-style DAC Featherlite pole, the footrpint (sold separately), and the fly, after which your setup will weigh just an ounce under a pound—a weight that's probably less than whatever you're carrying in your pockets right this moment. Even with this silly poundage, you still get a fully-functional vestibule, a mesh pocket, and reflective guylines and webbing so you don't trip yourself up at night. Sometimes, it's all about what you don't have.

    When Weight Matters

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Pros: Easy to pitch, spacious enough for a claustrophobic backpacker (me), unique pole design, absurdly low weight.



    Cons: Fellow backpackers are jealous because I look like a leaf bug in this tent (google image search, it'll make sense) and my pack is way lighter than theirs? I'm kidding, mostly. I'll update this review as soon as I find a flaw; until then, nothing notable.



    I first took this tent out after work for a weekend backpacking trip. I wasn't necessarily needing to save pack weight for the weekend, but, man, was it nice to do so anyway.



    I was a little hesitant that I'd look like a goof in front of my two male co-workers pitching the tent for my first time, but I had nothing to fear. The design is user-friendly and intuitive, and I had my tent pitched first out of the group, so I fixed dinner-only seemed fair-and snapped this awesome photo while doing so.



    This tent will be my go-to from now on. It's packable, light, and it withstands the rain. Big Agnes has done it again.
