    Ultralight tent: Big Agnes Fly Creek UL1?

    I am thinking about getting a new ultralight tent, wondering if anyone has any input on the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL1 or any other suggestions. Thanks.

    Quality tent and extremely lightweight. No condensation issues, tub style floor, and water proof floor and fly. Can't go wrong with it, IMO.

    Great little tent. I went with the UL2 for a little more room and love it.

    I have it and love it. I'm 5'9" and can sit up straight at night and scourer over maps and do some reading in bad weather which is awesome. I typically slip the bow on the outside of the tent and under the fly and stays plenty dry in precip. The front vestibule is nice, and I'm probably pushing the limits of the fabric but I've cooked under it with it closed and haven't had any problems. Sets up super easy and isn't too loud putting it together. Heavy snow slips easily off of it. Since I've gotten it, the ODR advanced bivy doesn't get much love anymore.

    Any experience out there with the Fly Creek UL3? This is the tent I wanted to pick up this summer. At just over 1.5lb per I thought it would be hard to beat for two guys backpacking in. I am 6'4". Will this be a problem. Can't find anyone local to set it up for me to test out. Was going to burn Cabela's points and order it through them.

    Thanks for all the comments, sounds like it is a winner. I'm 5'10", 160 so claustrophobia shouldn't be an issue.

    The UL3 is a sweet tent. It has one extra pole across the top that gives you a lot more headroom inside the tent versus the UL1 and UL2. I plan on using one this year for two guys and in a pinch you could get three in there but it would be tight. It's plenty long at 90" so being 6'4" you'll be fine.

    If you decide to buy one let me know and I'll hook you with a great deal.
