Built especially for backpackers determined to have the lightest freestanding shelter possible, the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV 2 Platinum tent weighs in at just 1 pound, 10 ounces! Streamlined dimensions and ultra-lightweight fabrics combine to shed any and all unnecessary weight.
The tent is 86" long. The width at the head is 52” and tapers to 42” at the feet. With 28 square feet of interior space, the Fly Creek HV 2 Platinum is a snug fit for 2 but it makes for a spacious, ultra-lightweight option for solo backpackers. A vestibule offers 7 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. Three interior mesh pockets provide places 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. The ultra-lightweight floor and rainfly have a 1200mm waterproof polyurethane coating to ensure protection for rain and moisture. All of the seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements. Because of the ultra-lightweight materials, use of the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 2 Footprint (sold separately) is highly advised to bolster the floor of the tent against rocks, roots, and moisture.
Lightweight, collapsible DAC Featherlite NFL poles provide the tent with freestanding structure and surprising livability for its streamlined dimentsions. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated clips to make setting up the tent fast, easy, and intuitive.
When the weather is balmy and you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 1 pound, 0 ounces!
