    Bigger and still lighter.

    The Fly Creek HV UL Two-Person Tent still maintains the ultralight weight that minimalist backpackers look for, but Big Agnes redesigned it with a higher volume to give a comfier sleeping space. Unique to Fly Creek HV 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 along with 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 that 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).

    Light weight

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

    Super lightweight, but not super roomy, great for sleeping not really for anything else such as games and eating. if you seeking just a shelter then this will be perfect.

    GREAT

      My friend and I were looking for a new tent to take camping at renfest. This tent was perfect. It fits a queen mattress with enough room on the sides for a duffel bag or backpack.

      Extremely light tent

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I cant beleive I didnt get this tent years ago. It extremely light and is perfect for backpacking. This tent fits two people pretty tightly tho. There is enough floor space for two, but the roof angles in and makes it hard for two people to sit up in this tent. The 3 person would be great for two people.

      Good backpacking tent

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

      This tent surprised me on how light but tough it is. I would recommend getting yourself familiar with the set up of this tent before your trip as it is a little tricky. This tent kept us dry when it rained during the night. I would recommend getting the footprint with this tent to help keep you more dry. A few negatives I would say: zippers snag a lot and it is really snug for 2 people. Unless you are a couple, you may want more room with your tent mate. If so, I would get the 3 person version of this tent.

      Great ultralight tent

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

      Light weight and easy to use. Great for couples who don't mind being cozy, if you need or like your space then get the three person tent. My wife and I used this for the first time on a backpacking trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We really like it, and would recommend it.



      Great ultralight tent

      Great Ultralight tent

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I caved finally and bought a new backpacking tent after my trusty old one had a pole break. I have only used this a couple times but am impressed with how lightweight and easy to set up it is. The inside has a lot of great pockets to organize gear and so far seems very durable. Highly recommend.

      Ultralight backpacking tent!

        As far as three season ultralight tents go you cant't get any better. The overall weight is fantastic. the quality is to the high standard I have come to expect from Big Agnes. It is a cozy two man, great size for me and my wife, but it would be tight if i was sharing it with a my brother or buddies that are closer to my size. That being said it is still totally usable and functional for two 6' men, just cozy as should be expected from an UL tent. I have paired it with the footprint for added durability and though it adds to the weight i am ok carrying a bit more to be sure it will hold up to my uses. with the low weight i will also be using this on solo adventures so it covers all my UL tent needs.

        Great LW tent, w/out stakes not as good

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I recently used this tent on my 4 month bike touring trip and it held up through a lot of varying conditions (not snow), including heavy rain and windy conditions as well. I camped in Joshua Tree with 40 MPH winds and it was staked down and held up well. I did not use the recommended footprint, instead used a fire blanket which helped stop the ground from sucking up the heat. While this is a great overall tent, my main complaints have to do when the tent is not staked out. While it is a free standing tent, if it is not staked out, and you are in the rain, you will get water in the tent. The other thing is, if you do not use the stakes, you are missing out maximizing space inside of the tent. There was one additional time when I had it staked out (maybe not properly and I still got water inside of the tent).



        The tent is pretty lightweight and I used it on my solo excursion, it has great pockets inside for organizing small items, and a nice pocket up top to put a light in.

        Great LW tent, w/out stakes not as good

        Light weight and durable

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        For most backpacking treks I tend to go with a burlier tent, however that being said there are always the times when weight becomes a concern. For any and all of those backpacking adventures the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL is my go to choice! Without sacrificing on the durability factor for more demanding conditions, the Fly Creek HV UL shaves down the weight this tent will contribute to your pack enough for any light weight set up you might be wanting to roll for a given journey.

        Great tent

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Tent is durable for light weight zippers work well spent 2 consecutive nites 10500 feet well above tree line July 2017 worst thunder storms possible 2nd nite wind tried to buckle tent everything held together & stayed dry

        Does the job it is intended for

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

        I bought this tent for my wife and my venture into fast packing. This tent is very lightweight and fits easily inside a 40 liter pack. I have a 4 season tent and a larger 3 season tent when I can afford the extra bulk and weight, but for the niche I was looking to fill, this one is perfect. It sets up easily, but for two people it is definitely cozy. No room for packs inside but they can fit in the fly vestibule if you don't mind moving the packs out of the way to exit the tent. All in all, a great purchase

        Thought I was upgrading.....I was not.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I got this one and was so excited to take it out. The other reviews has me sold. After my 4 day trip I returned it right back to backcountry. I absolutely hated this tent. The condensation was terrible, and the zippers were very poor quality to be on such an expensive tent. I expect zippers like that on my tent from Aldi, but not Big Agnes. You have to stake the tent out at each point to get a decent amount of space, which was not possible at all my campsites. Plus it appears to be somewhat see through even with the fly completely closed. I was told you could see my shadow getting undressed, and I had no light on inside the tent. The only good thing I have to say about it is I kept warm at 30F and it's very light weight. This was my first BA tent, and I will entertain other tents by big agnes, unless I find they all have those awful zippers.

        great lightweight tent

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

        Perfect for a person and a pup. Didn't like the idea of not being able to zip up the windows however the rain cover prevents wind from coming in which saves weight. Looking forward to using it on a warm night without the cover.

        Great 3 season Tent

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Love this tent, it is noticeably lighter than any of my other two or three person tents. Great for cutting down on weight for longer backpacking trips. It is easy and quick to set up, even if you get to camp late . My husband fits in the tent nicely, he's 6'2" although it is a little bit tight with two people and a dog. Definitely isn't big enough to comfortably bring in packs as well. The only issues we've experienced were with some of the zippers splitting/puckering on the tent door as well as the rain fly, but I think it's because we have done a lot of desert camping and didn't clean out the tent well enough afterward. This is definitely a great tent to add to the collection!

        Ultra LW but durable

          Only one outing so far and was impressed. Got caught up high in the alpine in a storm and this tent held up admirably, no drips. So light I will likely take it more than my mid in the future.

          Hi, what kind of wind would this tent handle? We camp at high peaks that are very windy most of the time. And since there is no water there, I always have to pack in all of our water, so I am looking for a lighter tent to offset the water weight, but don't want to have my tent destroyed by the winds either. Would this tent handle 50mph?

          Thank you

          David M.. This tent has held up twice for me in high winds.. Probably 30 - 40 mph. However, My opinion is this tent is not made for these conditions multiple times. I think after 3 or 4 uses in this type of wind it would begin to show signs of wear and tear. Honestly, I am surprised I had no damage the two times I was caught in high winds. I would bite the bullett and go towards a Hilleberg type tent for rough weather conditions... Rick

          Perfect for couples cuddling.

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I was a big fan of the original, but unforeseen circumstances sent that tent to a friend and I was out to buy my own. The upgraded HV is fantastic. Much easier to "exit" than the original, which was my biggest issue previously. I bought this to use with a duo sleep system like the Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed Duo or the Nemo Tango Duo and both fit nicely inside the tent. I was also looking to keep the tent weight and size to a minimum so I could take it bike or back packing. I did invest in a footprint, which I'd say is mandatory if you want to extend the life of the tent floor, plus it helps with a fast-fly setup. It's been in 20-30 degree temps (no snow) without a hitch (assuming my guy lines are on target...).



          Agree with other reviewers that with the weight savings, you have to be gentle with the tent and treat it with care. Zippers are fragile. It's not fully stable in high wind (but I did put it up on a granite cliff in Yosemite in high-ish winds and it was a champ through the night). But I do believe if I continue to use it carefully, I'll have continued joy of a nice, lightweight tent that I can use solo or pair with someone to cuddle when the right moments allow!

          Perfect for couples cuddling.

          Ultralight home on the range

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I lived in this thing for eight weeks as I rode to Utah from Wisconsin. It is what it says: an extremely lightweight tent that kept me dry though a couple of thunderstorms.

          There are a couple trade-offs with a tent this light. The zippers are tiny and can be finicky. The tent body is quite lightweight and I can't recommend using it anywhere rougher than your backyard without a ground cloth. If you're lazy setting up the rain fly, and your guylines aren't dialed in, you might get some water coming through the rainfly due to contact with the tent body. And of course, it is smaller than many 2 person tents on the market.

          That said, this did everything I wanted. Touring by myself, it felt truly spacious. Like I said: this was home, a welcome place to fall unconscious after riding 100 miles yet another day. I recommend it for anyone looking to save weight.

          Best lightweight tent

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I have owned and used a Big Agnes Fly Creek for the past 2 years. My wife just returned from a backpacking trip in Yosemite. The trip was a success due in part to the quality of the tent. First of all, the big Agnes Fly Creek is very lightweight at 3 lbs. I used to carry a bigger, heavier tent in my younger days but now at age 67 I try to eliminate every unneeded ounce from my pack. While the tent is small with a footprint of 4'x7' it is certainly livable for two small to average size persons as long as you store your backpacks outside the tent. I am 5'8" and my wife is 5'3". We hang our backpacks from a tree. Best of all, the tent is completely reliable. While camping at 10K we endured a 2 hour thunderstorm that dumped hailstones which covered the ground to a depth of 1inch. The 3-season tent withstood the howling wind and pounding hail and did not leak one drop. Three cheers for the Big Agnes Fly Creek!
