The Big Agnes Fly Creek series delivers an ultralight tent with a mixed mesh and fabric inner tent, with a redesigned pole construction the Fly Creek HV now has more room inside. The Bikepacking version features handlebar compatible bag and short section poles.
Big Agnes says:
Three season, free standing, ultralight bikepacking tents.
From our award-winning, best-selling line of Fly Creek HV UL tents comes a bikepacking tent designed for on and off-road, two-wheeled travel. The pole segments have been shortened for optimal handlebar, pannier, and saddlebag storage. The burly compression stuff sack with a daisy chain makes storing these tents anywhere, a cinch. Enjoy the comforts of extras like an oversized storage pocket, webbing for dry helmet storage, and all the other features that make Fly Creek HV UL tents the bomb.
Big Agnes' Fly Creek UL2 uses the latest materials to lower the weight bar. With this trend we are seeing much bigger lightweight backpacking tents offering more comfort, in many cases for less weight. The Fly Creek is a good example of this concept, we particularly like the high fabric inner - only the top section and door is mesh, this gives a good compromise between ventilation, wind protection and warmth.
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.
This tent is designed for bikepackers, the short pole sections and custom storage bag let you stow the tent away on your bike. You can strap it to your handlesbars or stuff it in a pannier, even the poles will fit at only 12" long.
