Product Description

The Slater UL tent series derives it's inspiration from the Fly Creek UL series. The Slater is light and fast like the Fly Creek but comes with extra floorspace in the 1+ and 2+ sizes. Whether it's just you or you and your dog, the extra space comes at little cost in this minimalist free standing shelter. Another unique feature to the Slater is its absence of mesh. Big Agnes replaced the mesh walls on the tent body with lightweight breathable nylon rip-stop for that extra bit of warmth and privacy, or just to keep the sand and wind out when you're headed to the desert. Trail Weight: 2 lb 9oz. Packed Weight: 2 lb 15oz. Footprint Weight: 6 oz. Fast Fly Weight: 1 lb 14 oz. Packed Size: 5"x19". Floor Area: 37 sq ft. Vestibule Area: 8 sq ft. Head Height: 40". Foot Height: 26"

Customer Reviews

The size and weight of this tent when packed is amazing.
Kevin S.
Even if I stake it at all possible spots, I do not think that you could stay in it with out being always in contact with the sides of the tent.
Texashiker
I am not sure if this was a bad run off the production line or what.

For my needs (backpacking in varied conditions usually with my wife and on a rare occasion solo) this tent is the perfect ultralight compromise. I had the good fortune of buying a sample from the company at a discounted price and have been able to test it on two occasions recently. I would be hard pressed to find a lighter tent that offers the same space without significantly sacrificing durability.

Pros:
-Ultralight, it packs relatively small (a little larger than the Fly Creek... naturally) and is lightweight. If split between two people it is even lighter!
-Durable for an ultralight, seemingly so anyways and feels much more solid than some of the new Cuben Fiber tents
-Fully enclosed tent. I really like the fact that I can zip the whole thing up and keep bugs out. Bugs love to bite me, so open air tarps, no matter how light, are out of the question for me.
-EXTRA Space! I am 6'3" and fit comfortably and can store my pack below my feet with no problem. Its more roomy than the Fly Creek, and we can even kinda sit up in the tent!

Cons:
-Not totally free standing. While you can pitch the tent with the poles only, you'd really want to add a couple stake or tie the guy wires to a rock or tree to make it fully taught. If you don't it would likely poorly repel rain/snow, flutter in the wind or sag. **(if you were clever there might be a way to tension it using trekking poles, but this isn't a feature, just an idea I want to try)
-Condensation. The semi-opaque material in place of traditional netting is a great for added warmth, privacy, and keeping wind blown sand out, but I think it also contributes to greater internal morning condensation. If this is problem you might want to try opening the single net vent. It helps but overall condensation might be a challenge more often with this tent.

OVERALL I recommend this tent, especially if your needs are similar to mine.

This tent is one of the roomiest, and more sturdy ultra light tents I have used. I have used this on a 15 day bike tour, and several multi-night hikes. It is free standing - but not very sturdy unless staked out. I originally was leaning toward the Fly Creek, but after trying it out it was too short for me (6'4"). The UL2+ has enough room for me, 4 panniers or back pack, with extra room in the vestibule. The size and weight of this tent when packed is amazing. I also camped through a pretty severe thunderstorm with fairly gusty winds (I was concerned for potential tornado). I had the tent fully set up - all stakes and guy lines, and it performed flawlessly and I stayed dry all night. If you are looking for a high quality ultra light tent - I would check this out - especially if you are much taller than 6'. If you are concerned with a true free standing and still stable tent - you may want to look elsewhere - but you will not find anything near this weight and size. Another positive aspect is the company "Big Agnes." you can call the company directly in colorado, and speak with an employee that has extensive knowledge of the product. I can't say enough good things about this tend or the company.

Did a lot of research on this and. It is basically a Fly Creek UL 2 which seems to be world renowned with the light weight backpacker crew but upgraded a bit. Its 10 oz heavier which will immediately turn off the that "light weight group". But lets see what you get for 10 oz. which is less then the weight of the average MacDonald's happy meal. No open mesh on the top. A front door you can actually zip up if the cold winds come. Can't do that with the Fly Creek 2. The Fly Creek UL 2 is funny. Kind of like sitting on your screened in porch on a cold January day and telling your self its ok. Fine for the fair weather crowd.
