Summary: Favorable Reviews

Reviewers describe the Shortstix pole system as brilliant. It did well in the rain and was loved for all the little bike packing conveniences with straps to secure a helmet outside the tent etc. Great design & features, right interior size, small pack size, lightweight, and easy setup make for a really excellent product! Four days of heavy rains on an early-season trip and the tent stayed dry as a bone.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

Reviewers note, Be wary of sharp objects under the floor, branches that can rub the fly, and don't yank on the zippers, etc. The same degree of reasonable care that should be used on any remote trip. Setup and takedown in winds can be a challenge.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 1 HV UL Bikepack 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 examined With 20 square feet of space inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 1-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you during the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents similar to this one often can make a nice choice for campers who enjoy spending lots of hours outside the tent exploring.

A few of the great things about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances light, making them easy to carry. In most all instances, 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 types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in storms than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the rain pooling on the top of the tent. The most basic dome tent will have a rectangular footprint, slanted sides two or more poles which cross in the center of the roof. Due to the way they are made, it is usually considered that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Beneath you can find a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL Bikepack 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 floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Offers 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 stuff.
  4. 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 rain.
  5. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Not spacious. With a floor area of 20 square feet, the Copper Spur 1 is smaller than quite a lot 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 thing for some people.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately designed for the Copper Spur 1 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Ripstop nylon, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have many things to rave about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.
