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 maximum center height of 3' 2, which is a little bit less than the average height of the 68 different 1 person tents we have studied. With 20 square feet of room inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 1-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you all through the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents like this one make a suitable choice for people that enjoy spending lots of hours outside exploring the great outdoors.

A few of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking not too heavy, making them easy to carry. In near all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In calm weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most common of all the various types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to fair better in bad weather 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 roof. The most basic dome tent will have a square floor, sloped sides a couple of poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is usually thought of that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Beneath you can see an account of the tent's pros and cons.

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 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 good 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 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. Other sizes are available. 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 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 designed for the Copper Spur 1 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Polyurethane-coated ripstop nylon, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Unfavorable 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 lots of 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 good for backpacking. Here are a few other things not mentioned above which, we noticed 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 ok ratings, a few reviews and a minimum headroom of 3' and 20 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your very own little home away from home. This allows you to spend some really enjoyable time exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can study above.

If you found this page looking for suggestions on this particular tent, we think, it should make for a decent buy. If you just happened to land on this page while looking for a new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent model before, it is perhaps a good idea to look at a few more comparable tents also.

Value for money: In terms of value for your dollar, this tent is more expensive than the normal cost of all the one hundred and six, one-person tents we have studied, this alone is not a negative thing. We also need to look at other things in detail, as we do with every tent.

When we measure the ratings of a single tent, we consider a good deal of areas, finding areas where the tent could excel against other very similar tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with a total score of 3.5 and the price info above, It is simple to view that with a ticket price of $289.95 info_outline Big Agnes's Copper Spur 1 HV UL mtnGLO is a decent bargain although it could be thought of as a tiny bit costly when compared with similar tents.

The ratings show that the build and capacity the tent gives you make it a good purchase for campers looking for a tent that will be used for a few years. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is marked down by 33% from the manufactures suggested price. It could make a good choice for nearly all people searching for a comfy three-season backpacking tent to camp with, that should serve you well.
