Product Highlights

Updated for 2014! The Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 3 backpacking tent is an ultra-light enthusiast's dream. Streamlined to cut unnecessary weight, the Fly Creek UL 3 accommodates three or serves as a roomy shelter for two backpackers.

Tapered from the head to the foot of the tent, the interior of the Fly Creek UL 3 measures 66" at its widest point and stretches a full 90" in length. The 39 square feet of interior space provides ample room, and the vestibule offers 12.5 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. Seven interior mesh pockets provide places to stash gear and clothes while integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Wall Gear Loft or Large Trapezoid Gear Loft (both 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 3'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 3 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 3 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 3 Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 2 pounds, 5 ounces!
