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!
