Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 Platinum
Source: bought via a "pro deal"
Price Paid: $220
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!
- Quality design/construction
- Excellent ventilation
- Easy setup
- Small interior
- High cost
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
When pack weight is critical, you need the Fly Creek 2 Platinum from Big Agnes. While preserving the dimensions and space of the original Fly Creek 2, Big Agnes was able to shaving nearly half a pound off of their lightest 2 person tent to create this special edition feather. Even the footprint and fly weigh less meaning the Fast Fly shelter setup drops your tent's weight to 23 ounces.

The Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 Platinum Tent is the lighter weight version of the popular Big Agnes Fly Creek 2. Weighing in at just 1 lb 13 oz, you won't find a lighter 2 Person tent around. The Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 Platinum features DAC poles made from TH72M aluminum: the latest technology in lightweight, durable tent poles.
If your two-pound tent just isn't lightweight enough for your ultralight backpacking trips, the two-person, three-season Big Agnes Fly Creek Platinum Tent should do the trick. Weighing in at a ridiculous 1lb 13oz, this tent improves on the award-wining Fly Creek UL2 by using an all-mesh body and lighter weight fabrics. But even with its skinny weight, this tent provides a roomy shelter for two that stands up to the abuse of summer storms during long, challenging trails like the John Muir or Pacific Crest Trail.
