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, 4 ounces!

Real Customer Reviews
- Light weight, plenty of room
Likes: The good!
Very light weight and packable. Unlike other tents, the poles are also quite packable
. Fly is color coded to assist with attaching to main tent. Large vestibule!
Easy to set up.
Dislikes: Requires many stakes to guy out fly and head/foot of tent. That's not the free-standing tent I was hoping for.
Vestibule did not keep my things dry.
My main gripe with this tent is the design. With a front entry design, I found it easy to get in, but very difficult to get out. After 15 miles, the last thing my legs wanted to do was turn around to face the vestibule, put on my boots, and reach 3 feet to the vestibule zipper to get outside. I would love this tent if it had a side entry.
