Summary: Favorable Reviews

After a year of using it, it has held up well. I've been going on a trip maybe, twice a month, so, basically, I can say that this is a durable tent.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

I am not sure, but how is this tent different from the other model that they made? I can't see a significant difference except for the price, which had a pretty big leap when you compare it.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 1 HV UL mtnGLO has one door and a peak center height of 3' 2, which is a little bit less than the average height of the 60 other 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 like this one can make a very good choice for campers that love spending loads of hours outside the tent exploring.

Many of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part not too heavy, making them easy to carry. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very simple to set up. In calm weather, you can do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is recommended.

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

Underneath you can check out a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL mtnGLO 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 things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big plus.
  3. Internal storage. It is good 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 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 60 other 1 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 7% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative thing for some campers.
  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 Polyurethane-coated ripstop nylon, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Not the best Ratings. Unfortunatly the Copper Spur 1 has some of the worst ratings of all tents on optimumtents.com
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have many attributes to rave about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

3.5 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.5 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL mtnGLO tent is perfect for backpacking. There are a couple of other points not already mentioned above which, we found and liked, while researching the model: Tent body is proprietary patterned random rip-stop nylon breathable and polyester mesh, Light routing that keeps the light above your head on the ceiling where you need it most and High volume angle hub increases strength by 25% and the usable interior volume by 20% when compared to previous versions of the Copper Spur.

With nice ratings, a few reviews and a minimum headroom of 3' and 20 square feet of space to enjoy, this tent is like your own miniature studio. This will enable you to spend some real quality moments in the outdoors. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can read through above.

If you came to this page looking for suggestions about this specific tent, we think, it would make for an ok purchase. In case you simply happened to land on this page while looking for a brand new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent model previously, it is perhaps a good idea to look at a few other comparable tents.

Value for money: When contemplating value for your dollar, this tent is unquestionably pricier than the standard cost of all the ninety-eight, one-person tents we have looked at, all alone this is not a negative thing. We also need to take a look at other areas in-depth, as we do for each tent.

When we determine the score of an individual tent, we regard plenty of areas, searching for points where the tent could outshine other near-identical tents and where it is coming up short. In this case, with a total rating of 3.4 and the price knowledge above, It is simple to notice that with a ticket price of $298.95 info_outline Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL mtnGLO is a fair purchase though it could be perceived as quite costly when compared with comparable tents.

Its ratings show that the build and capacity the tent provides make it a decent buy for campers searching for a tent that can last for a few years. It could make a decent choice for nearly all people looking for a comfy three-season backpacking tent to camp in, that should serve you well.
