Can you feel the weight saving on your back? Are the tiny interior proportions worth a few fewer ounces? And, most importantly, can it contain an 85lbs, half-wild dog? We spent a week living in the 1 lbs, 9 oz Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 Platinum so you don't have to.First, we should probably qualify the lightness thing a bit. There are lighter shelters out there. The Hyperlite Mountain Gear tarp that Chris has been living in on his 'round the world adventure for the last few months weighs just 1lbs, 2 oz. Big Agnes' own one-person version of this tent weighs 2 oz less. But, as far as I can tell through my research, this Fly Creek 2 Platinum is the lightest double-wall tent that will stand up with its own poles and kinda sorta fits two-people in a pinch.
