The Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 1 has a modified architecture that creates greater internal space while still boasting a trail weight of just 1 pound, 11 ounces!


Bringing an extra measure of livability to the freestanding, award-winning design of the Fly Creek tent, the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 1 has a modified architecture that creates greater internal space while still boasting a trail weight of just 1 pound, 11 ounces!

Tapered from the head to the foot of the tent, the interior of the Fly Creek HV UL 1 measures 38" at its widest point and stretches a full 86" in length. The 20 square feet of interior space is adequate for solo backpackers. An integrated vestibule offers 5 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. High Volume pole architecture increases the verticality of the sidewalls and the door so that there is more elbow room and livable space inside the tent. Three interior mesh pockets provide places to stash gear and clothes while integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft (sold separately).

Ample mesh on the tent body and a large mesh door maximize cross ventilation and provide circulation to fight condensation build-up. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the silicone-treated rip-stop nylon floor and rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Fly Creek HV UL 1's seams are sealed with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements.

Lightweight, collapsible DAC Featherlite NFL pre-bent poles provide the tent with freestanding structure. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated clips to make setup fast, easy and intuitive.

If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional Fly Creek HV UL 1 Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 1 pound, 4 ounces!

Lightweight Tent, but Discomfort


Lightweight. Big vestibule that you can keep your backpack and shoe under. Great color choice for Green Olive for blending in. Full waterproof and condensation free!


Struggle to turn around once you crawl into the tent. Not ideal for high wind performance. The front end entrance is not ideal for raining condition. In order to have max living space, you need to use your tent fly to pull out the tent body.

ultra light, but not very durable


ultra light, only a pound! Easy to set up.


Could have used better instructions; left us guessing what to do with some of the clips and ties. Seems as though it is not very durable and it will tear easily.
