Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Ultralight Tent Big Agnes has completed a "high volume" redesign of their classic Fly Creek model, adding extra headroom, foot space, and mid-tent width; all without adding weight. Nifty integrated adjustable lighting provides a soft ambient glow in the interior without the use of a headlamp or lantern. Pros: Plenty of room to sit up comfortably, room for some gear on both sides of your sleeping pad, and a nice sized foot box. Very sturdy for an ultralight, stands up well to heavy rain and wind, provided all stakes and guylines are properly utilized. Rain fly zipper allows for adjustable venting from the top down, achieving extra ventilation without sacrificing privacy. Includes three thoughtfully placed gear sleeves, as well as an easy to reach custom pocket for placement of the small lighting power pack. Cons: Ultralight design necessitates eleven stakes for full stability, and extra width is achieved by clipping the tent body to the rain fly at four different locations; this adds a minute or two to tent set up time. Minimalist stake design makes extraction from ground more difficult, as there are no natural finger latch points at the top. Front vestibule requires that gear is positioned in front of only entry door, making entry/exit a bit more difficult. Tip: Rain fly can be pre-attached to tent body at all connection points in advance, and with a little practice, assembled poles can then quickly be slipped in between. This not only reduces set up time, but keeps tent interior dry when pitching in the rain. Overall, this is a truly amazing ultralight. Great weather protection, good livability, and even ambient lighting, all achieved with a total packaged weight of only 2lb 2oz. Wow.

Were set up instructions provided? I do not have them. How to obtain?  Stable "provided all stakes and guylines are properly utilized", so would like to read instructions. Only find one mesh pocket above doorway. Where are other 2?

Asked by: Splash
​The other two mesh pockets are on the side walls of the tent near the door. Please contact Big Agnes directly for tent set up instructions if you did not receive them.

What do you mean my semi-freestanding? Does the tent need to be staked down (especially around the footbox) or can this tent also be used in places where staking is not possible?

Asked by: Daniel
​A semi-freestanding tent can stand up on its own using the poles but has to be staked for maximum livable space and wind resistance.

The dimensions are listed as "Floor Dimensions: 86 x 28 / 38 inches" What does the 28 / 38 mean? Are there different sizes of this tent?

Asked by: alinder
The tent is wider at the "head end" (38) and tapers down to the "foot end" (28).
