Anthony Galluscio Hiking Gear Review #5: Backpacking Tent

Anthony Galluscio Backpacking Tent Review

  • Item: Backpacking Tent
  • Quantity: 1
  • Make: Big Agnes
  • Model: Fly Creek HV UL mtnGLO Tent: 1-Person, 3-Season, Gray/Silver
  • Cost: $399.00
  • Weight: 36.125 oz
  • Rating: Good
  • Notes: This backpacking tent has LED lighting that lights the inside of the tent and makes it visible from the outside in the dark. I was initially unsure that I would trade this kind of convenience for the cost of additional weight. However, upon further inspection, the lighting does not seem to add much to the weight (probably on the order of single digit ounces).  Furthermore, I find the lighting useful when camping in the woods on a moonless night. I really like having the lighting to find my way back easily if I have to leave the tent in the middle of the night.  Therefore, I am glad I purchased the version with the built-in lighting.

Another feature I like about this tent is that it is free standing, but can be staked down. You can pick the tent up still on the frame and shake it out before storing it, which helps minimize maintenance. This tent is very easy to set up and the instructions are super easy to follow. Additionally, you have the option of pitching only the rain fly if you so chose.

The pros of this tent are that it is light, durable, easy to set up, and will keep you dry.  Also, the quality and construction of this tent is excellent. On the con side I find this tent to be very small, my pack does not fit very well in the vestibule and definitely will not fit inside the tent with me. Overall, I like this tent enough that I am not in the market for a different one. The size is the only reason I give this tent a “good” instead of an “excellent.”
