After receiving it, I can believe how light it is. I would rate this one as five stars. Everything is all good.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

It did not work well for even two people. My girlfriend and I tried using it, and we had a hard time sleeping in it. It does not have that much space to move around.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Fly Creek 3 HV UL has one door and a peak center height of 3' 5, which is 14 inches smaller than the average height of the 127 different 3 person tents we have examined With 39 square feet of room inside, it is considerably smaller than some other 3-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, up to two other campers all through the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one often make an ideal choice for people who enjoy spending lots of hours outside their tent getting some air.

Many of the great things about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances not too heavy, making them simple to carry around. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very simple to set up. In calm weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are easily the most commonly seen of all the various types of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in storms than other types, allowing water to roll off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, allowing the water to pool on the top of the tent. The simplest dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, slanted walls two or more poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Due to the way they are made, it is typically considered that they are best suited for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Underneath you can see a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Affords you a place to store shoes and other things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a huge plus.
  2. Internal storage. It is good to see Big Agnes has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your things.
  3. Breathable. The Fly Creek's interior uses a mesh fabric on the inside of the tent, and this helps maximize the flow of air. With the extra ventilation, and this tent is great for use in the warmer months.
  4. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the entire body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1200mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  5. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Not spacious. With a floor area of 39 square feet, the Fly Creek 3 is smaller than quite a lot of the 127 other 3 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 14% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative thing for some campers.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately specifically for the Fly Creek 3 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Nylon rip-stop, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have many qualities to rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

Value for money: In so much as value for your money, this tent is right around the average price of all the one hundred and eighty-one, three-person tents we have taken a look at, this just by itself is not a negative thing. One should also look at other things in-depth, as we do for each tent.
