Bringing an extra measure of livability to the freestanding, award-winning design of the Fly Creek tent, the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 2 has a modified architecture that creates greater internal space while still boasting a trail weight of just 2 pounds!
Tapered from the head to the foot of the tent, the interior of the Fly Creek HV UL 2 measures 52" at its widest point and stretches a full 86" in length. The 28 square feet of interior space provides ample room for 2 backpackers or serves as a roomy shelter for one. An integrated vestibule offers 7 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. High Volume pole architecture increases the verticality of the sidewalls and the door so that there is more elbow room and livable space inside the tent. 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. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the silicone-treated rip-stop nylon floor and rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Fly Creek HV UL 2's seams are sealed with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements.
Lightweight, collapsible DAC Featherlite NFL pre-bent poles provide the tent with freestanding structure. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated clips to make setup fast, easy and intuitive.
If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional Fly Creek HV UL 2 Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 1 pound, 7 ounces!

Real Customer Reviews
- Perfect backpacking tent
Likes: This tent is ultralight, easy to set up, perfect for one person with room for gear. It's a fair price for one of the lightest two-person, mostly freestanding tents on the market. Big Agnes is a quality brand.
Dislikes: With any ultralight tent they are ultra-delicate. You have to be careful not to puncture the ultralight material. You have to stake out the tent to set it up along with the guy lines to take advantage of the high volume features.
- Perfect for 1 person
Likes: This tent fits 1 person plus spare clothes along side your sleeping bag very well, it's the lightest option I could find that still allowed clothes to get inside for colder or wetter nights
Dislikes: The foot area slopes down and if I were much taller (5' 9") my sleeping bag would start to touch the fly and get condensation on the bag
- Amazing Quality
Likes: Quality of the craftsmanship along with the innovation that was placed in the design of the tent shows that they build their equipment for backpacking.
Dislikes: Nothing about this product.
- Should be considered for its intended purpose...light weight shelter!
Likes: Extremely light weight & ultra packable. I am 6’1” & have plenty of room vertically & horizontally. Using for early season back country archery elk hunting. Stone Glacier 6900, bow, & all gear will fit in tent with me.
Dislikes: Lightest material I have ever used. When I first unpacked tent I was concerned with durability. Time & experience have convinced me I made the right purchase.
- Perfect, exactly what I wanted
Likes: Super lightweight, super quick and easy to set up, perfect for one person and wouldn't be bad at all for two (I'm 5'7" 130lbs) Just what I was looking for.
Dislikes: The zippers can get a little stuck but it really doesn't bother me, maybe if they included a patch kit that would be nice, thats it everything else is awesome
- Great quality, lightweight tent
Likes: Easy set up and take down.
Worth the money
Dislikes: Tight for 2 adults. Perfect for 1 person.
This tent has to be staked out....not freestanding.
- Lightweight, a bit cramped...just what I was looking for
Likes: super lightweight while still maintaining two wall tent design
still enough room on the floor for TWO neolite mattresses. One is the Regular size and one is the Large. We do touch the sides a bit without the sides staked out but it's a backpacking tent and less internal room is expected.
Dislikes: Obviously more room would be nice, but the trade off for weight reduction is worth it.
- best ultralight for the money
Likes: super lightweight
tons of vestibule room
perfect for 1 person and their gear
Dislikes: does require 2 stakes to actually stake out the tent
not a 2 person tent, unless you and your 2nd are very small
- All of my research found this to be the lightest 2 person tent
Likes: Lightest high quality tent
2 person only a few ounces heavier than the one person.
Dislikes: Only drawback is it does require 2 stakes to stand on its own.
- Lightweight, but delicate.
