The company-wide REI garage sale was today and I dragged my sorry keister up to the biggest store of our three (yes, three! serioiusly, Austin is ridiculous) and to my surprise they had a Fly Creek UL2. It was labelled with a "faulty zipper" which, upon inspection, simply had some teeth that were smooshed at the lower corner causing the bottom 2-way zipper to separate. With some fiddling I got it all straightened out and otherwise the tent is perfect.
So imagine my surprise when I was told as I was checking out "everything is half off for the next couple hours" and the total was just less than $65. Bargain! So yeah, even if I need to side sleep slightly fetal to fit (which I do anyways) I'll certainly $65 love it!
They had a Copper Spur UL2 that said "bent pole" and when I opened the bag and inspected the tent body it looked like a bear had shred the thing. Mesh windows completely blown out, lower nylon torn to pieces. What the hell do people do to these things they return (see the other thread I started lamenting this)?!
Anyhow, if it doesn't work for me I'll move it on to someone shorter for what I paid and then look at the Slater, or something else.
