User Review: Big Agnes Fly Creek UL3
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: less than $300
Perfect for 2 people and a dog, 3 would be squished but would work. It breaks down to 1.1 oz per person if planning to camp with 3. There is also the versatility of just rainfly and footprint which brings this under 3 lbs. I'm transitioning into a tarp system, but when camping with friends, I bring this out for me. It's very comfy solo and weighs very little.
- Fast setup
- Well constructed
- Not great at high wind
I have used this tent many times and it's excellent. However, I believe I bent a pole camping at Longs Peak at 13,000 feet. Wind gusts had to be upwards of 50 miles per hour. Rock walls were already pre built because its naturally very windy at that elevation. I have a slight bend in one of my poles, but it hasn't compromised the tent yet.
Other than that, I have nothing but good things to say. I'm convinced on testing out tarp camping with a bug bivy now... Not everyone is keen on that idea, they prefer the false level of safety that the tent provides.
I'm very happy with my purchase and if you're looking for a solid 3-season tent with more wiggle room for 2 people, this is a great choice
