Summary: Favorable Reviews

As this tent is due to go on sale in January 2020, we will have to focus on the reviews of the older HV UL 2. That one received tons of great reviews stating it was surprisingly light considering It was the entry-level Copper Spur. The two doors were also viewed as a significant plus for such a small tent. All in all, this 2020 version looks to have improved slightly on the older version.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

As this tent is due to go on sale in January 2020, we will have to focus on the reviews of the older HV UL 2. That one received quite a few comments stating the footprint should have been included and was an expensive extra. Even though it is a small tent, quite a few people felt it would be difficult to accommodate the recommended number of campers. The headroom was also mentioned a few times. All in all, this 2020 version looks to have improved slightly on the older version.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 1 HV UL 2020 has one door and a maximum center height of 3' 2, which is a tiny bit less than the average height of the 68 other 1 person tents we have studied. With 20 square feet of room inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 1-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you during the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one generally make a fantastic choice for people that welcome spending plenty of hours outside exploring the great outdoors.

Some of the great points about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part not too heavy, making them easy to carry. In nearly all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In good weather, you could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most commonly seen of all the different sorts of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in bad weather than other types, allowing water to roll off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the rain pooling on the roof. The most basic dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, sloped walls a couple of poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Due to their construction, it is generally considered that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Below you can find an account of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL 2020 can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not need to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the ground with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Gives you a place to store shoes and other items that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big plus.
  3. Internal storage. It is nice to see Big Agnes has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your gear.
  4. Breathable. The Copper Spur's interior uses a mesh fabric on the inside of the tent, and this helps maximize the flow of air. With the extra ventilation, and this tent is great for use in the summer.
  5. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the whole body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1200mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  6. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 20 square feet, the Copper Spur 1 is smaller than quite a lot of the 68 other 1 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 6% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative thing for some people.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately specifically for the Copper Spur 1 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Ultralight double rip-stop mixed denier nylon, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures site the last time we checked.
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of attributes to rave about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

4.1 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.1 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL 2020 tent is ideal for backpacking. Here are a couple of other things not already mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: Redesigned with new features inside and out, using proprietary materials that are lighter, stronger, and equipped with hardware that makes set-up even easier. , NEW pre-bent span pole with high-volume angle hub (UL1), 4-way high-volume hub design (UL2, UL3, UL4) increases strength, stability, and shedding and Smooth-closing, dual-zipper doors with easy-grip pulls allow for ease of entry, exit and quick, reach-through access..

With positive ratings, and a minimum headroom of 3' and 20 square feet of space to enjoy, this tent is like your own small studio. It will allow you to enjoy some real quality moments camping. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can check out above.

If you came to this website looking for suggestions on this particular tent, we consider, it will make for a good buy. In case you just happened to land on this website while browsing for a new tent having not heard of this manufacture or this model previously, it is perhaps a good thing to look at some more similar tents.

Value for money: In so much as value for your money, this tent is a more pricey than the average price of all the one hundred and five, one-person tents we have taken a look at, this alone is not a negative thing. One should also think about other areas in-depth, as we do for each tent.

When we measure the ratings of a single tent, we study a good deal of things, looking for things where the tent could outperform other similar tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with a total rating of 4.1 and the price statistics above, one can spot that with a price of $379.95 The Copper Spur 1 HV UL 2020 is a fair purchase although it could be considered quite costly when compared with similar tents.
