Big Agnes Fly Creek 1 Platinum
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
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.

Why would Big Agnes build an even lighter Fly Creek Platinum tent? Why climb mountains, explore new territory, cycle the length of the North American West Coast or paddle the Grand Canyon? Because they can. The Fly Creek Platinum Series is a sign of their commitment to be lighter, faster and better prepared for whatever nature throws your way. If you want the lightest free standing double-walled tent available, then look no further.
