Description

Light and durable shelter for covering serious ground.

Solo backpacking can be a hell of a time, but it's also nice to head out on the trail with a partner. Bringing someone else along doesn't mean you have to pack extra weight though; the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 2-Person 3-Season Tent is an ultralight beauty that's got plenty of room for two and weighs less than most one-man shelters on the market. With a trail weight of under two pounds and a super-simple single-pole hub design, it's no wonder that the Fly Creek has won awards from Outdoor Gear Lab and Backpacker Magazine. Its mesh walls work with the lightweight but durable rain fly to keep moisture and condensation out of your tent, and the front vestibule stores your packs and boots so you don't have to bring them in the tent or leave them in the rain.

All the Fly Creek's guylines and external webbing points are reflective (if you've ever tripped over your tent at night you know how awesome this is), and the vestibule's zipper is covered with a storm flap for extra weather protection. Three mesh pockets hold headlamps and small gear. If all this weight gets overwhelming somehow, you can even leave the tent body behind and bring the fly, pole, and footprint (sold separately) for a quick and easy shelter-style setup that weighs under 1.5lbs, which is almost certainly less than the hiking boots you're wearing.

What do "fast-pitch", "trail weight" and "packed weight" mean and what are the differences?

Responded on

Fast pitch is just the poles, footprint and fly.
Trail weight is the poles, tent, and fly.
Packed weight includes the poles, tent, fly, stakes, and ground cloth.

Responded on

One correction on David's answer. Packed weight does NOT include ground cloth. Packed weight is poles, tent, fly, stakes and guylines.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this tent! It's my backpacking tent spring through fall. I've even used it in nice weather on Mount Adams. Ultralight, ultra packable. Setup is a breeze. Pitches taut, and guys out nicely. Holds steady in moderate winds. Haven't tested it in downpours, but stayed dry in moderate rain and fog.

Fast pitch option is awesome, great for going even lighter. Vestibule area with fly will hold a couple moderate size packs. Interior space is perfect for 1, cozy for 2, but can't beat the weight.

I'm with you Brandon . . . at least most of the way. I've found the vestibule marginal in rainy weather. Maybe it's me, but I've been unable to pitch the fly "taut-enough" to keep the vestibule from sagging once it gets wet. As a result 1) I get a little shower exiting the tent and b) I just don't trust the vestibule to keep my boots & pack dry. So I wind-up with all my gear inside the tent. Good news is there's room inside for my gear as I use this as a (not quite perfect) one person tent.
