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 smaller than the average height of the 64 different 1 person tents we have studied. With 20 square feet of space inside, it is considerably smaller than some other 1-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you during the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one make a superb choice for campers that like spending heaps of hours outside exploring the great outdoors.

Many of the fantastic points about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances light, making them simple to carry around. In most all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very easy to set up. In calm weather, you could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are easily the most commonly seen of all the other sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the top. The most straightforward dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, sloped walls a couple of poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Because of their construction, it is typically considered that they are best suited for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Down below, you can check out 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 things 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 things.
  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. Other sizes are available. 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 few of the 64 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 factor for some campers.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold 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 best 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 looked.
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of attributes to be positive about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.
