Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL2 Solution Dye Tent
We initially reviewed the Big Agnes Fly Creek Platinum Tent back in 2016 and were impressed but Big Agnes didn’t rest on their laurels and new for this spring is the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL2 Solution Dye Tent. This is an updated version of the three-season, semi-free-standing ultralight Fly Creek Tent with several new improvements and features. As you may have noticed in the name the Fly Creek HV UL2 Tent is now solution dyed which means that Big Agnes uses 50% less water, 80% less energy, and 80% fewer chemicals to dye the fabrics. This is a significant reduction in carbon emissions and water requirements, yet the fabric is still highly resistant to UV fade. Big Agnes is the first company to introduce a solution-dyed tent body and fly fabrics—Bravo Big Agnes.
