Weighing in at just over 2 pounds (2lbs 2oz), the Big Agnus UL2 is amongst the lightest 2 person tents available. This tent is so good, that it was awarded the Backpacker 2010 Editors' Choice Award. Not only is this tent light, but it's freestanding, and roomy as well, covering 31 square feet. The only drawback of this tent, is that there is only one door, so you have to be careful not to step on your backpacking companion.
The tent utilizes single hub pole assembly, which, along with the newest technology in ultralight fabric, keeps the weight to a minimum, and ensures easy setup.
The Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 also allows for those looking to shed even more weight, the ability to set the tent up with only the rainfly and footprint.
It's pretty hard to beat the weight of this backpacking tent. The only issue is the single door, but for those really looking to cut their pack weight to a minimum, the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 is tough to beat.
