Whether you're backpacking backcountry or camping with the kids, Big Agnes has award-winning tents, sleeping bags and pads just right for you. Wonder why we called our company Big Agnes? The answer you receive depends on who you talk with and the mood we're in.
Honestly, it's either a rocky peak in the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness Area outside Steamboat Springs, a laid back mountain town mama or dependable backcountry gear. We think it represents a little bit of each and everything in between.
We've spent a lot of time in the local backcountry so we feel downright connected to it. We name our products after local history, places, peaks and rivers which is always a fun process. It brings back memories of trips both successful and epic and hopefully inspires you to come explore.
Roomy tent for just iver 900 gBy: Wendy Williams on 16 April 2016Good design, not quite free standing as need to pull out the sides with guy rope to stop it sagging inside. Otherwise very lightweight for the amount of room you get and considering the fact it is relatively free standing. And plenty big enough to sit up and move around in. I am 164 cm and plenty long enough for me- not sure how a very tall person would faire, sometimes it is good to be short! Cheaper and better value than some other brands, but in Australia is still quite expensive, as are all lightweight tents. I am very happy with it
By: Tim Rule on 21 October 2015I have set up this tent but have not actually used it yet. Don't follow the instructions when setting up as they misdirect you - just set it up according to what looks right and logical and it will be easy. It is certainly light and compact for a two layer tent.
Review Big Agnes Fly Creek Ultralight 1 Person FreBy: Rob on 23 June 2015Very happy with the Agnes one man tent, especially the weight!! under one kilo!!, May need a ground sheet under, we will see how the floor performs. Very well constructed and very easy to set up with a single three point pole.
Big Agnes Fly Ck UL1Anonymous 13 April 2015Very happy with the tent. It was easy to erect, weathered the storms ok and was nice and light.
Wow - light, roomy and easy to set up.By: Alex on 2 December 2014Shortly after ordering this I read some reviews that complained about the length. I am 6 foot 2 inches and utilize a Big Agnes long length Q-Core mattress and Big Agnes bag to sleep. I was concerned that this tent may be too short... Not the case. Although the end of the bag does press against the inner tent at the foot end, I fit without an issue and the distance between the inner tent and the fly is ample to avoid any condensation problems. Weighing in at less than a kilo this is now my go to tent for any solo trips. With the additional footprint (also purchased) the three different configurations will be fantastic for both summer and winter hiking. Set up is a doddle (less than 2 mins for my first set up) and the inner tent is actually quite roomy. I was able to fit my sleeping system and my full backpack (Golite Gust) inside and still feel comfortable. As a recent discoverer of Big Agnes I have so far found nothing to dislike - and this tent is superb.
