Technical Details


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"

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.

Verified Purchase
I had/have high expectations for this tent. I have used Big Agnes products before and always like the quality. Plus there are based right here in Colorado so that is a plus.

First to address what other people have said, no this is not a free standing tent, and no it does not work correctly unless staked down to the ground to get maximum square footage. Anyone who did research on this product, or have been on any serious backpacking know that most tents in this weight range are the same way... and the design eliminates a lot of weight. In my opinion tents should always be staked down, it's the only way, with any tent, you get maximum floor space and get the rain flys to work properly.

Now onto my problem with the tent. Even though the material feels light and thin, it is good quality. Proper handling will allow this tent to give you many years of use. However, when inspecting my tent out of the box, I saw a mistich/thin area at the very foot of the tent by the pole. I am going to chalk it up as a quality oversight, but none the less I am concerned. I have returned the tent for a new one, as I feel this tent deserves another shot in my book.

The tent is super light weight, has a very large fly space, seems are excellent quality and covered for leak proof. The tent also has a double layer door which will really help for warmth and you do not see on many tents in this class. The ability to completely seal up the tent, will also be nice for camping in areas with dust.

I am giving it three stars now, because of the quality oversight, but will report back after I receive my new one.

***UPDATE****
My second tent arrived quickly, as most always with Amazon prime items.

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.
