Review of Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2By: Dong on 2 July 2019The lightest tent that I can find and is easy to setup. I bought when it was in EOY discount. Highly recommend it.
Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 Ultralight tentBy: Brian Waldron on 12 July 2017I've taken this tent on a 4-week walk of the northern half of the Australian Alps Track and on two multi-week walks on the Bibbulmun Track. On the Bib Track, I'm mostly staying in shelters, using only the groundsheet from the tent to protect my sleeping mat and bag. But I need to carry a tent for a couple of locations where shelters aren't available and in case I'm caught out and have to make an overnight camp between shelters. So it is mostly insurance, but it does get some use. The Fly Creek 2's light weight means that it is almost as light as a tarp tent, but much more comfortable when needed. I usually use this 2-person tent for myself and my gear, but I have shared it and it was surprisingly comfortable with two (much more comfortable than I expected). On the Australian Alps Track I used the tent much more for shelter and for one person, with my gear inside and out of the weather, it was warm and weather proof. Of course, smaller ultra lightweight tents do have a downside, and for 1.1 kg you can't expect a palace, and you don't get one. If something rolled towards my feet, I could struggle to retrieve it comfortably, but then I have to tent model BEFORE the HV model and I think the high volume model would be more comfortable. You also have to take care not to get rubbish into the tent as you can easily drag dirt into the tent where you will be laying your head. I've recently purchased a Copper Spur 2 HV and I think that will be more comfortable for long walks living in a tent, but for short walks, and for walks when you are not constantly in a tent every night, the Fly Creek 2's very low weight makes it a perfect choice. I would recommend this tent highly to solo walkers and suggest they buy the Fly Creek 2 for solo walkers rather than a Fly Creek 1. The small savings in weight isn't enough to give up some internal interior space for your gear, and the Fly Creek 2 can accommodate two people if needs be.
Pack light tentBy: Gwynn on 4 July 2017I bought this tent to go on a thru-hike in the Royal National Park in winter to see the whales migrating. I wanted to keep my weight down and his tent was perfect. It is compact in size and weighs just over 1 kg. I had watched some clips on how to set it up on you tube and when we arrived at camp the sun was almost down .Yet we had the tent up before night fell. It was quick and easy. I was impressed that the tent, although being so thin kept us warm and stopped the wind from getting in. The ventilation was good.Due to the small size of this tent my friend and i were expecting to have to snuggle, but there was no need as both our sea to summit regular and large mats fit side by side with a little space in between. Our 50L packs fit nicely either side of the entrance and stayed dry under the vestibule. One of my concerns was that this tent would be too sheer and on lookers could see in, surprisingly this is not the case. All in all i would highly recommend this tent for its price point and weight it was great buy. I look forward to using this tent on more upcoming adventures.
Love this tentBy: Lily on 14 April 2017I hiked the Overland Track in Tassie by myself with this tent (six days). I wanted to keep my pack as light as possible and this tent is super light. Found it easy to set up and heaps of room. I wouldn't share it as I think two would be snug (personal preference). Had all weather during the hike and was really happy with how the tent performed in heavy wind and rain. Love this tent.
My Review of Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL2 Person FreBy: Wendy Nelson on 28 February 2017I haven't used this in the field yet, but I have had it up with my gear inside, and I am really excited by how much room is in it. The bend that has been added to the rear pole gives so much more room. The only hesitation I have is that it seems very thin, flimsy. I won't know if this is an issue until I get into the field with it. Love how light it is.
