The design of this Big Agnes Fly Creek Ul2 tent is great. We love how easy it is to set up, and we also love how much space there is inside the tent. The vestibule is large enough for me to store all of my gear, but not so large that it takes up too much room inside the tent.

Comfort

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Fly Creek HV UL Ultralight Tent with UV-Resistant Solution Dyed Fabric is really a great tent. It is lightweight and easy to set up, which makes it perfect for ultralight adventures. The tent comes with pre-cut guy lines and tensioners attached to the fly. You don’t have to worry about setting up the tent or getting stuck in the middle of nowhere because you forgot how to set up your tent!

The tent has an enlarged front entry area that provides greater comfort and ease when entering and exiting the tent. The Fly Creek HV UL is also very spacious inside. So you can sleep comfortably on rainy days or if you’re just camping with friends or family members who want extra elbow room inside their tents too!

This tent also comes with two interior mesh pockets, one oversized media pocket, and integrated gear loft loops. So you can store all of your belongings in one place without having to worry about losing anything!

Durability

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The durability of this tent is great. We have used it for several camping trips and it has held up well. The stitching is strong and the poles are solid, so we don’t have to worry about them breaking. The only thing that has happened is that one of the zippers broke, but it was easily replaced.

Resistant

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This tent is resistant to UV fade, which means it will last longer and not lose its color over time. It also reduces energy consumption and water use during manufacturing, a process that is better for the environment and improves the quality of the fabric.

Problems We Found

However, there’s one thing that really bothers us about this tent: the connection between the poles and the fabric is very weak. The first time we tried to set it up in high winds, all of the poles came loose from the tent and blew away! Luckily, they didn’t break, but it was still pretty scary having them fly off like that.

Final Thought

The Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 tent is the perfect choice for your next camping trip! It’s lightweight, durable, and easy to set up. You’ll be able to get it up in no time, so you can focus on enjoying the great outdoors with your friends and family.
