More space, less weight.

The Big Agnes Fly Creek Collection contains some of the lightest tents available on the market, and the Fly Creek HV UL One-Person Tent is no exception. Unique to Fly Creek HV (high volume) tents, DAC's Angle SF Hub works with the Featherlite pole system to provide 25% more head space and 10% more foot space. Apart from a higher volume, the Fly Creek HV UL Tent still features the same waterproof fly and floor, as well as the same mesh canopy for three-season use.

The fly creates a dry space to protect your gear from wet weather, and it gives the door a dry entry so you don't dampen your sleeping bag. Big Agnes included eleven superlight stakes, three internal mesh pockets, and gear loft loops to accommodate the Big Agnes Triangle or Entertainment Center lofts (both sold separately). This tent is also compatible for a lighter fast fly setup with the fly, poles, and footprint (sold separately).

When Like Grew to Love

I've put it through the wringer
True to size
5` 3"

Bought this tent for the Pacific Crest Trail. Not going to lie, I didn't love it at first. I'm all of 5'3, but it still felt teeny, and I was getting a lot of condensation. A couple hundred miles in, I realized I wasn't pitching it correctly. And that's when I started to love it! With the tent body attached to the rain fly and pitched out correctly, I found that I had more than enough room. I'm short, but I could bring my pack in as well when I wanted. A year later and another few thousand miles on the Appalachian Trail, and the tent is finally losing its waterproofing. Maybe it's ignorance on my part as to the lifespan of a tent, but about 10 months of every day use in all conditions seems great to me. The tent isn't completely freestanding which allows it to be lighter than a standard tent. The stakes are pretty darn good too- they aren't MSR Groundhogs, but they're the next-best I've seen. Great tent, great weight, great company. I accidentally lost my poles in a hitch and needed my zippers fixed- Big Agnes hooked me up at a great price. After this tent, I'm a Big Agnes girl for life.

Excellent 3-season tent

I've used it several times

Main point: I really like this tent! It’s nice and light, sets up easily, the included stakes are actually useful, and it’s very weather-resistant when fully guyed out. I stayed completely dry during heavy rain and 30-40mph gusts in a fully-exposed spot atop western Maine’s 3717’™ Boundary Bald Mountain. The stakes went into the loose rocky soil very easily and held very well, after the rainstorm I only had to move 1 stake a few inches and tighten 3 guy lines to get everything taut again. There’s a fair amount of storage inside the tent, 2 pockets at the bottom side corners near the door and a smaller one directly overhead near the apex. There are loops for a gear loft but this would take up headroom that the tent really doesn’t have. All I do is sleep in this tent, I only need a place to put my phone & glasses and somewhere to hang my socks to air them out (the apex pocket.) The day's clothes are put over the foot of the sleeping bag to air/dry if necessary, everything else goes back in the pack or is left in the vestibule for easy access on the way out. The vestibule has room for a pair of boots and a 36l day pack, but the pack has to lean against the fly and door. For me it’s a tight squeeze getting out, someone who’™s not 5’11” & 250lb and about 60” around the shoulders will have an easier time. The only thing I’d change would be putting more Velcro straps on the fly to hold it to the pole. Strong wind can push on the fly hard enough to shift the pole on either side of the single Velcro strap, causing the tent to sag with the wind. Once it’s 4-season tent time here (in a couple months) I’ll send it out to have more Velcro sewn on. Rain will get in the tent during entry and exit because there’s no overhang over the door, I just push my sleeping bag toward the foot to keep it dry. Adding an overhang would have added weight. All in all I really like the tent and find it almost perfect for my needs, and recommend it for anyone who wants a lightweight, weatherproof tent.

Exactly what I was looking for

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This tent is quick and easy to set up and it's so light and compact that you barely notice it in your back or strapped to your motorcycle for long trips.

Initial review - I like what I am seeing

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Right now I have not been able to do a full review as I have not had the opportunity to take it out on the trail. My first impressions are that I really like what I am seeing. The weight for a double wall tent is nice. I think I would prefer to have the side entry model, but the height at the entrance is good. Setup is very easy, I do like how the fly attaches to the tent and pulls it out to provide a little more interior room. Overall excited to take it out this summer.

Exactly What I Wanted

I've put it through the wringer

When looking for a light and easy-to-pack tent, I kept seeing the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 1 pop up. As someone who isn't tall, I find the space to be more than adequate. I can sit up, which is all I really need when prepping for another day on my feet/bike. I can usually squeeze my backpacking pack or 1-2 panniers in here with me if I arrange everything right. I haven't tested it in a full downpour, but it has survived some intermittent rain showers in the evenings without an issue.

Wow! A lot more compact then expected.

Very nice, quick setup, will say it's not truly free standing, but it will work. Use some rocks if you can. The true test comes next spring.


Meet the new Fly Creek

This tent has been the go-to model for long-distance and ultralight backpackers for good reason--lightweight, relatively spacious, double wall, freestanding, weatherproof, durable, and world-class warranty. Big Agnes has taken the standard for ultralight backpacking and raised it to a whole new level.
