8 July 2015
Summary: The Big Agnes Fly Creek is an overall good choose for a solo backpacking tent. It is fairly light and packs down to half the size of my North Face Blue Kazoo. Taking the above into consideration, it is important to note that the tent is tight on space both inside the tent and in the vestibule...
Pros: Low weight, Small packed dimensions, Easy setup
Cons: Lacks durability, Lacks headroom, Lacks vestibule space
Excerpt: Tall campers usually face an unhappy compromise when it comes to shelter: either fold like origami in ultralight tents, or pay a weight penalty for XXL comfort. Happily, the 96-inch-long Slater offers a no-settle option.
Excerpt: This dome isn’t the lightest in its class—the freestanding Burn Ridge weighs four pounds more than ultralight options—but it costs half as much, making this two-door, four-person shelter a fantastic buy for families seeking an affordable backcountry shelter.

Excerpt: I really like this tent. I have had a Big Sky Mirage on order for almost a year now but bought the Fly Creek UL1 because I really needed a new tent for THIS summer. Who knows when I'll get the Big Sky tent? I'm 5'10" 210 lbs and am pretty rough on equipment.

Excerpt: I bought the Big Agnes Fly Creek to replace a Tarptent Contrail that I had been using. The primary reasons for the swap were: the Fly Creek has a smaller footprint than does the Contrail and I prefer the double wall configuration over the condensation-prone single wall tents.

Excerpt: I'm an outfitter in MT and have spent many nights in the wilderness. Needed to find a new solo tent for the high country. Used this tent one night and that was enough. Super light weight and extremely thin but seemingly tough enough material. Seems and stitching seem sound.
