The UL3 is the big brother of the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 to that we did a full hands-on review of. The UL2 got our Top Pick award because it is one of the lightest tents out there. How is the UL3 different than the UL2?The UL3
- has about 30% more floor area
- $80 more expensive
- 1 pound heavier
Both tents have otherwise very similar designs and construction.
Both get similar reviews. Which one should you get? We feel that if you are getting a light tent, you should get the absolute lightest one that fits your needs. For most people, that will be the UL2. But if you want more space or are in a group of 3, the UL3 is the way to go.
