Updated for 2014! The
innovative, freestanding Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 1 is an ultra-light
enthusiast's dream. Streamlined to cut unnecessary weight, the Fly Creek UL 1
delivers surprising livability at a trail weight of just 1 pound, 10 ounces!
Tapered from the head to the foot of the
tent, the interior of the Fly Creek UL 1 measures 42" at its widest point
and stretches a full 86" in length. The 22 square feet of interior space
provides ample elbow room and the vestibule offers 5.5 square feet of
additional weather-protected external storage space. One interior mesh pocket
provides a place to stash gear and clothes while integrated gear loft loops offer
a connection point for the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft (sold separately).
Ample mesh on the tent body and a large mesh
door maximize cross ventilation and provide circulation to fight condensation
build-up. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the silicone-treated
rip-stop nylon floor and rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Fly
Creek UL 1's seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane
tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements.
Lightweight, collapsible DAC Featherlite NSL
+ NFL poles provide the Fly Creek UL 1 with freestanding structure. The single
hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated DAC Twist
Clips to make setting up the Fly Creek UL 1 fast, easy and intuitive. An
eco-friendly anodizing process is used by DAC to treat the poles without the
toxic chemicals traditionally used on aluminum tent poles.
If you really want to travel light, leave the
tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional Fly Creek UL 1
Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 1 pound,
