Green Thumbs Up Logo

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.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

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 peak center height of 3' 2, which is a tiny 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 during the whole of the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one can generally make a great choice for people who love spending plenty of time outside of their tent exploring.

Some of the fantastic points about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking light, making them easy to carry. In most 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 suggested.

Dome tents are easily the most commonly seen of all the different types of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in bad weather than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the roof. The most basic dome tent should have a square floor, sloped sides a couple of poles which cross in the center of the roof. Because of their construction, it is typically considered that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Down below, you can find an account 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 even have 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. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Affords you somewhere 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 gear.
  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 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 factor for some campers.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately designed for the Copper Spur 1 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Ripstop nylon, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. 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.

CONCLUSION

4.1 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.1 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL Bikepack tent is really good for bike packing. There are a few other cool things not mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: 3-D shelf is ideal for stashing your helmet and oversized gear, utilizing dead space above your feet. The pole segments have been shortened for optimal handlebar, pannier, and saddlebag storage, Singletrack, two-track, and roadie riders rejoice! Our two-door Copper Spur Bikepack tents are perfectly equipped for packing on all two-wheeled, overnight adventures and Compression stuff sack with daisy-chain webbing system for multiple bike-frame attachment configurations.

With positive ratings, a couple of reviews and a minimum headroom of 3' and 20 square feet of area to sleep, this tent is like your very own miniature home away from home. This enables you to enjoy some real quality moments in the outdoors. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can study above.

If you came to this page looking for suggestions on this specific tent, our view is, it will make for a great acquisition. If you just happened to land on this page while browsing for a new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this tent model before, it is possibly a good thing to look at a few more similar tents.

Value for money: As far as value for your money, this tent is significantly more expensive than the average cost of all the one hundred and six, one-person tents we have taken a look at, this alone is not a negative thing. One should also look at other things in-depth, as we do for every tent.

When we calculate the overall score of a single tent, we look at plenty of data points, looking for areas where the tent could beat out other very similar tents and where it is not quite as good. On this occasion, with a total score of 4.1 and the price info above, It is simple enough to notice that with a cost of $399.942 Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL Bikepack is a great buy although it may be thought of as quite expensive when set side by side with comparable tents.

Its ratings show that the quality and space the tent gives you make it a good choice for those wanting a tent that will be used for lots of years. It will make a decent choice for most campers searching for a comfy three-season backpacking tent to camp with, that should serve you well for years to come.
