Summary: Favorable Reviews

As this tent is due to go on sale in January 2020, we will have to focus on the reviews of the older HV UL 2. That one received tons of great reviews stating it was surprisingly light considering It was the entry-level Copper Spur. The two doors were also viewed as a significant plus for such a small tent. All in all, this 2020 version looks to have improved slightly on the older version.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

As this tent is due to go on sale in January 2020, we will have to focus on the reviews of the older HV UL 2. That one received quite a few comments stating the footprint should have been included and was an expensive extra. Even though it is a small tent, quite a few people felt it would be difficult to accommodate the recommended number of campers. The headroom was also mentioned a few times. All in all, this 2020 version looks to have improved slightly on the older version.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 2 HV UL 2020 has two doors and a maximum center height of 3' 4, which is 11 inches smaller than the average height of the 211 different 2 person tents we have examined With 29 square feet of room inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 2-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, another camper during the whole of the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents like this one often make a very good choice for people who appreciate spending lots of hours outside the tent exploring.

Some of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part lightweight, making them easy to carry around. 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 securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are easily the most common of all the various types of tents you will find when camping. They tend to fair better in bad weather than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the top of the tent. The simplest dome tent should have a rectangular floor, slanted walls two or more poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of their construction, it is usually considered that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 people.

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

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL 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 ground with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Gives you somewhere to store shoes and other items 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. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is simpler to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  5. Breathable. The Copper Spur's interior uses a mesh fabric on the inside of the tent, and this helps maximize the flow of air. With the extra ventilation, and this tent is great for use in the warmer months.
  6. 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.
  7. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Not spacious. With a floor area of 29 square feet, the Copper Spur 2 is smaller than quite a lot of the 211 other 2 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 11% 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 available separately designed for the Copper Spur 2 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. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures site the last time we looked.
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have lots of things to rave about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.
