- Really good tent at a fair price
- I had never backpacked with a solo tent before this one but I really like how the small footprint allows me to find good ground in places that would never accommodate a 2 person tent. I've used it on two extended trips - Philmont NM and the WInd River Range, each time with groups. I could always find a good place to lie even after letting everyone else claim the best spots. I agree with dirtbag's review that it can be difficult to change clothes, since you can't sit upright. Look at the bright side, you'll give your abs a good workout. Also, you have to master the pivot maneuver to exit - sit up, pull your knees up to your chin and spin on your butt. I think a side exit solo would be much easier to get in and out, but haven't used one yet to really know. The vestibule area is very useful. It's small, light, compact, easy to assemble and break down. Excellent.
- Quick set up, even in a deluge
- I love my Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 1 with all my heart. I just wish it was a little taller. It is hard to get dressed inside this tent, unless you are 3-4 feet tall, & I do not mean that facetiously, the kids love it even more than I do. I did learn to not go without the stakes. If you cannot pull the sides out into the proper position, you are not going to get all the benefits this tent has to offer. In a deluge at Mt Rainier, my lack of foresight cost me my warm sleeping bag, which got wet at the bottom, due to my negligence. I'm going on season 4 with this setup & my friends are still envious.
