Summary

The Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 tent is all about the weight... or lack of. At less than 2 pounds, it's truly an ultra light 2-person tent. This is a quality tent, utilizing the latest in technology. I love this tent as a one-person tent... roomy and still lighter than many other smaller one person tents!

Here's what other sites are saying:

Diamonds are played out; all the real ballers know that platinum is where it's at, and Big Agnes is one of the premier ballers in the tent game, which is why it introduced the Fly Creek Platinum 2-Person 3-Season Tent, which is even lighter than the standard ultralight Fly Creek offerings, thanks to a full mesh body and a single Featherlight DAC hub-style pole design. If the Fly Creek's trail weight of 1lb 9oz seems a little much for you (after all, it DOES weigh nearly as much as a pair of lightweight hiking shoes), go ahead and leave the mesh body behind, bringing only the pole, the silicone- and PU-coated fly, and the footprint (sold separately), for a shelter that weighs 6oz less and is still fully-waterproof. Don't worry, just because you're ditching unnecessary weight doesn't mean the Fly Creek is some kind of minimalist bivvy sack. It's got a full-zip door and vestibule for your pack and boots, and a storm flap and taped seams that keep night-ruining moisture at bay. Three mesh pockets hold glasses, flashlights, and a book, while reflective guylines and webbing save you the pain and indignity of late-night trip-fests. Since weight's the name of the game, even the pole hub, clips, and stakes are designed to be superlight. Now you know why the real players always go for platinum.

The Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 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.

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.
