Description

Show Description

The Platinum version of the Fly Creek HV UL2 is one impressively light tent. It makes even the ultra-lean Fly Creek UL seem just a little chubby. To cut weight, the Platinum model uses an all-mesh body and lighter fabric for the fly. Spare as it is, it delivers 3-season coverage for you and a partner. If you're interested in going even lighter, you can leave the tent body at home, and set it up with just the poles, fly, and the optional footprint. Your chocolate stash probably weighs more than this tent.

  • Made of feather light silicone treated ripstop nylon with a polyester mesh canopy.
  • All seams are sealed with solvent-free polyurethane tape (contains no PVC or volatile organic compounds).
  • Angled pole hub creates steeper side walls and more interior space.
  • Nearly free-standing design requires the 2 foot corners pegged out.
  • Side access vestibule entry with storm flap on the zipper keeps your gear dry.
  • 3 mesh pockets keep your stuff organized and off the floor.
  • Loops for attaching a gear loft.
  • Reflective guy lines and webbing on tent corners.
  • Optional footprint available for floor protection or an ultralight configuration.
  • Includes 11 superlight aluminum J-stakes.
  • Nearly free-standing design requires the 2 foot corners pegged out.
  • Compatible with the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft (sold separately).
