The Fly Creek has received a significant update with new environmentally friendly fabrics, larger internal space, wider opening for easier access along with a range of smaller tweaks and upgrades. A great tent made better!

Big Agnes says

Our award-winning Fly Creek tents have been redesigned from the stakes up, now using solution-dyed fabric that is highly resistant to UV fade and drastically reduces energy consumption and water use during manufacturing, a process that is better for the environment and improves the quality of the tent fabric. Updated with a larger vertical door entry-arch and steep-wall architecture for more headroom, Fly Creek tents maximize your interior space so you can camp comfortably out in the backcountry. Constructed using ultralight materials with weatherproof, technical features you expect from a three-season tent. The Fly Creek is your go-to, easy-to-setup shelter for ultralight adventures.

Our Verdict

Big Agnes' Fly Creek HV UL1 Solution Dye Tent has had a serious overhaul. A key feature being rolled out across a number of Big Agnes tents is the use of solution dyed fabrics. This is a great move for a number of reasons, firstly the positive environmental impacts which see a significant reduction in both energy and water consumption during manufacture. Secondly, this process means the tents are much more resistant to colour fade from UV. On a practical level, the tent benefits from a slight change in the pole design which now provides steeper walls, more headroom and a wider door opening which all make this version feel much more spacious and more usable.

The classic pole set up remains, keeping the weight at a minimum while providing a decent amount of internal and vestibule space. As with most Big Agnes tents there are loads of handy storage pockets inside as well as simple features to make setting up faster and easier. There are a number of other tweaks in the design to bring more welcome improvements such as changes to the pole set through to improvements in the tent pegs provided. This is a great backpacking tent that provides excellent space for the low weight and this version is much nicer to use thanks to the well thought out changes.
