BIG AGNES Fly Creek HV UL2 - is a lightest free standing double wall tent available.
Fly Creek HV UL2 is two person tent for three season. Fly Creek HV won the Backpacker’s Editor’s Choice Award for 2010.
This ultralight tent weighs 879g, is double walled, has a big mesh front door and excellent ventilation. It performs well in a wide variety of conditions, but its weak point is lack of strength in high winds. It is made from high-quality ultralight materials so being gentle with your gear is the price you pay for low weight. Reflective guylines and webbings ensure that you’ll be able to see your tent in camp even after the sunsets.
All of Big Agnes tent seams are taped using a solvent free polyurethane tape so there’s absolutely no need to purchase the seam grip and do it yourself.
Big Agnes says:
"Our award winning Fly Creek tents have been redesigned with steep wall architecture and a vertical door to maximize floor and head space. These features create more livable space so you can be more comfortable in the backcountry. All of the weatherproof and technical features of a three-season tent, with ultralight materials to keep the Fly Creek your go-to, easy to set up shelter when you need to pack ultralight."
If you are a solo backpacker looking for the lightest possible freestanding tent with the perfect amount of space for their personal gear then look no further. The Fly Creek UL 2 is a great choice for lightweight backpacking trip as a spacious solo shelter, or a very cozy ultralight shelter for two for any backpacking adventure. If you want a stronger, roomier tent that is still lightweight consider the Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2.
If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use it as a Fast Fly with the optional Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs only 652g!
