With a burly compression stuff sack and poles that fold up shorter than your standard backpacking tent, the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 1 Bikepack Solution Dye tent was built with adventurous cyclists and their unique needs in mind. But whether you're traveling by wheels or feet, this solo tent can easily pull double duty with features that made the original a backcountry classic.
Tapered from the head to the foot of the tent, the interior of the tent measures 38" at its widest point and stretches a full 86" in length. The 19 square feet of interior space provides adequate room for solo cyclists or backpackers. An integrated vestibule offers 5 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. A three-dimensional shelf is ideal for storing gear in the otherwise wasted space above your feet. An oversized ceiling pocket and integrated media pockets provide other options for getting gear up off the floor and out of your way. Built-in gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft (sold separately). Elastic webbing on the tent body even offers a connection point for hanging your helmet.
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 ripstop nylon floor and rainfly are lightweight and durable. Solution-dyed fabrics improve UV-resistance and reduce energy consumption during the manufacturing process. All of the tent'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 NSL 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. By employing shorter pole sections, the tent packs down to just 14" x 5" x 6.5" to better fit in panniers or saddlebags or lash more conveniently to handlebars or bike frames.
The custom-fit Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 1 Bikepack Footprint (sold separately) can be used to add additional protection beneath the tent from mud, ground water, or sharp objects. If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use just the rainfly, the poles, and the footprint for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 1 pound, 8 ounces!
The Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 1 Bikepack Solution Dye backpacking tent includes a durable water-resistant compression stuff sack with clips and daisy chain loops to make it easy to attach it to your bike.
