Summary: Favorable Reviews

Campers who have used the tent mentioned: The new fly allows you to build an awning with trekking poles, which makes getting in and out of the tent more comfortable. They were impressed with its durability and ease of set up. Fantastic tent loved every moment I've put it to use. Well designed and would suit tall people looking for a lightweight tent. They loved everything about it, lightweight, size, fast setup. Sturdy in the wind when guyed out. MtnGlow feature is a game-changer never worry about nighttime lights again. Paired with the footprint, this tent and rain fly set up has kept us dry through downpours.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 1 HV UL mtnGLO 2020 has one door and a maximum center height of 3' 2, which is a little bit less than the average height of the 70 different 1 person tents we have studied. With 20 square feet of space inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 1-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you during the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents like this one generally make an ideal choice for people who like spending loads of time outside their tent getting some air.

A few of the fantastic things about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking lightweight, making them easy to carry. In near 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 recommended.

Dome tents are the most common of all the various 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 sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the rain pooling on the top. The most straightforward dome tent should have a rectangular floor, sloped sides a couple of poles which cross in the center of the roof. Because of their construction, it is generally considered that they are best suited for up to a maximum of 6 people.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL mtnGLO 2020 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 floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Offers you a place to store shoes and other things 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 things.
  4. 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.
  5. 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 lot of the 70 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 people.
  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 better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. 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 mtnGLO 2020 tent is really good for backpacking. Here are a couple of other things not mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: New 3-D bin mezzanine in the foot provides massive, off the floor storage; Oversized ceiling pocket in the head provides great additional storage space; Media pockets provide clean earbud cord-routing from phones or other devices, New proprietary ultralight nylon double rip-stop; Mixed denier fabric offers extra tear strength and puncture resistance without adding weight and New pre-bent span pole coupled with the high-volume angle hub increases strength, stability, and shedding of rain and snow while creating optimal livable space where you need it most..

With favorable ratings, and a minimum headroom of 3' and 20 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your own small home away from home. It allows you to enjoy some real quality time camping. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can look at above.

If you found this website looking for suggestions on this specific tent, we think, it should make for a good acquisition. If you simply happened to arrive on this page while looking for a new tent having never heard of this brand or this model previously, it is possibly a good idea to check out a few more comparable tents also.

Value for money: In so much as value for your money, this tent is significantly more costly than the normal price of all the one hundred and six, one-person tents we have looked at, this itself is not a negative thing. We also need to look at other factors in detail, as we do with every tent.

When we tally up the overall score of a tent, we study a good deal of data points, looking for areas where the tent could exceed other very similar tents and where it is not quite as good. On this occasion, with an overall score of 4.1 and the price conclusions above, It is simple enough to conclude that with a ticket price of $429.942 Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL mtnGLO 2020 is a great buy even though it may be considered quite costly when set side by side with comparable tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and size the tent provides make it a honest buy for campers looking for a tent that will last for many years. It will make a decent choice for nearly all people looking for an adequate three-season backpacking tent to go camping in, that should serve you well for years to come.
