Big Agnes Fly Creek 1 Platinum UL
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Big Agnes Fly Creek Platinum Tent is the lighter weight version of the popular Big Agnes Fly Creek 1. Weighing in at just 1 lb 11 oz (trail weight), you won't find a lighter 1 Person tent around. The Big Agnes Fly Creek 1 Platinum features DAC poles made from TH72M aluminum: the latest technology in lightweight, durable tent poles.
By definition, the solo backpacker gets stuck with all the gear, but cut yourself a break with the ultralight Big Agnes Fly Creek 1 Platinum Tent, a freestanding shelter that lightens your load without sacrificing performance and protection. An all-mesh body ventilates and provides a view of the stars, and the silicone- and PU-treated fly acts like a hostile bouncer, turning water away before it can get in the door and cause trouble. Zipper storm flaps and fully taped seams give it some back up, too, because moisture's a sneaky, two-timing no good customer. Of course, the biggest feature that the Fly Creek has is actually what it doesn't have: weight. It checks it a mere, a ridiculous, an unbelievable 1lb 6oz, more than a half-pound lighter than a quart of water, and if you're really feeling like going ultra-ultra-light, you can ditch the tent body, bringing just the hub-style DAC Featherlite pole, the footprint (sold separately), and the fly, after which your setup will weigh an astonishing 1lb 1oz, a weight that's probably less than whatever you're carrying in your pockets right this moment. Even with this silly poundage, you still get a fully-functional vestibule, a mesh pocket, and reflective guylines and webbing so you don't trip yourself up at night. Sometimes, it's all about what you don't have.
The Big Agnes Fly Creek 1 Platinum tent takes everything we love about the Fly Creek UL1 and makes it even lighter by utilizing an all-mesh tent body, creating the lightest free-standing, double-walled tent on the market.
