    If you had your water bladder filled with ice cold Blue Moon you'd have the male trifecta (hunt, babe, beer) of perfection.

    A flask of glenlivet would take less room, and be lighter to carry. Plus, you ever drink beer out of a straw?

    Would a one inch tube coming out of a funnel count as a straw?

    I went with the Copper Spur UL1 because I liked the side entry door compared with the front entry Fly Creek. For a UL1 I liked the set-up size I'm 5'11" and fit great in the Copper Spur, however, the pack size seems to be a little larger than the Fly Creek. Does anyone have any comparisons of the two?

    I am headed to the store in the next hour to get my new Fly Creek UL2.

    Question: does anybody use that footprint floor, or is not worth the weight and hassle? I know I could get it later, but we are going on a weekend fishing trip, and it is a perfect oporunity to get this and put some "tent time" in.

    We use the foot prints on our tents. The fly creek is made of such lightweight material, that 1:You'll never notice the extra 3oz or whatever it weighs, and 2: You'll want the extra protection it provides.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Thanks for the quick response. If we are fast enough, we can still catch the evening bite!!

    got the Fly Creek UL2 and took it out last weekend. Really happy with it so far. Quick and easy to setup. I really see the value in the footprint. I like the steep pitch on the top to shed snow. I think most of the bivy type tents, my old one included, sag enough in the middle, that you could have a pile of snow resting on your chest when you wake up because it pulled the stakes out at the ends.

    I would agree with previous posts. 2 person tent if you are "really" cozy. Great for keeping gear inside.
