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 little bit smaller than the average height of the 68 different 1 person tents we have studied. With 20 square feet of room inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 1-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you all through the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents like this one generally make an ideal choice for campers that love spending lots of time outside their tent getting some air.

A few of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking lightweight, making them easy to carry around. In near all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very simple to set up. In calm weather, you could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are easily the most commonly seen of all the other sorts of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in bad weather than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the sloped walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, resulting in the rain pooling on the roof. The most straightforward dome tent will have a square footprint, sloped sides a couple of poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Due to the way they are made, it is generally thought of that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Down below, you can find an account of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

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. Offers you a place to store shoes and other items that can get dirty, muddy, this is a huge 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 stuff.
  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 entire 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 few 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 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 checked.
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have many qualities to rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

4.2 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.2 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL 2020 tent is good for backpacking. Here are a few other points not mentioned above which, were noticed and liked, while researching 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..

If you simply happened to arrive on this website while looking for a new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent model before, it is probably a good idea to check out some other similar tents also.

Value for money: When thinking about value for your dollar, this tent is a more pricier than the normal cost of all the one hundred and six, one-person tents we have taken a look at, this alone by itself is not a negative thing. We also need to look at other things in detail, as we do for every tent.

When we tally up the ratings of an individual tent, we consider a good deal of data points, looking for points where the tent could exceed other comparable tents and where it is not quite as good. In this case, with a total score of 4.2 and the price info above, It is simple enough to observe that with a cost of $379.95 Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL 2020 is a good deal although it may be thought of as very expensive when set side by side with comparable tents.

Its overall score shows that the build and size the tent gives you make it a honest purchase for people wanting a tent that can be used for many years. It is also worth noting it is marked down by 100% from the manufactures suggested price. It will make a decent choice for nearly all people looking for a comfy three-season backpacking tent to go camping with, that will serve you well for years to come.
