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).

- Q & A
Initial review - I like what I am seeing
- Familiarity: 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
- Familiarity: 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.
