Big Agnes says:
Three season, free standing, crazylight tents featuring Easton® carbon-fiber poles and Dyneema® Composite Fabrics.
The iconic, award-winning Fly Creek tent is pushing the boundaries of weight and performance once again. The Fly Creek HV Carbon with Dyneema® Composite Fabrics and an Easton® carbon pole set is for worshipers of high peaks, remote rivers, and spending more nights in your tent than bed at home. These products are intended for only the most advanced user. Although extremely strong for their weight, these tents are not indestructible and require careful use to decrease the possibility of damage. Special care during setup and extended trips is important as rough handling, long-term abrasion, exposure to sharp objects or rocky campsite selection may result in fabric punctures and tears. We highly recommend using tent footprints with these tents to improve durability. Self-adhesive repair patches are included in the event that repairs must be made on the trail.
The Big Agnes' Fly Creek HV1 Carbon with Dyneema Tent takes lightweight to the next level using superlight and strong dyneemea fabric with Easton Carbon fibre poles. Utilising the classic Fly Creek design with its mesh inner gives a good level of ventilation, reduces the weight and can be used for stargazing on warmer nights without the fly sheet.
The High Volume part of this tent is the redesign of the pole structure which adds significant extra space inside. The Fly Creek has storm guys which also act to keep the volume of the inner at maximum as well as giving some reassurance during windy conditions. 2 inner mesh pockets provide easy to reach storage for items such as head torches.
The flip side of the astonishingly low weight of the tent is need to take extra care against abrasion, though the dyneema fabric felt much tougher than I expected but if you want to the tent to last watch out for sharp objects when pitching. We and Big Agnes recommend using a footprint.
