User Review: Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2
Price Paid: $329
Well, I hate to admit it but age might be catching up with my ability to carry heavier backpacks. My son, 12, and I backpack and camp out 3 times a year and I go up alone another 6 or 7 times a year, hiking along the divide or Flat Tops in Colorado so I decided to invest in the Salt Creek L2 to save 3 pounds and wish I would of done it 2 years ago.
The Salt Creek at 2 lb 10 oz still provides room for the 2 of us, it's just not a long as our Emerald Mountain UL3 and has less storage space under the vestibule.
There is nothing I don't like about this tent, very easy and quick to set up, light weight even with the footprint and sturdy in the wind. Colorado has been dry in the high country since I bought the tent and have not spent time in any rain but, if it's like the Emerald Mountain, that shouldn't be a problem.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the footprint doesn't extend past the front edge of the tent to the tip of the vestibule so the inside of the tent get more debris in it. NO big deal for all of the advantages I experienced the 3 times I've use it so far.
Another winner from Big Agnes!
