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. You would be hard-pressed to get two people in this tent; however, the floor will not even accommodate two sleeping pads, but it is a good fit for one person with gear.


SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 2 HV UL Bikepack has two doors and a maximum center height of 3' 4, which is 11 inches smaller than the average height of the 204 various 2 person tents we have examined With 29 square feet of space inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 2-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, another camper during the whole of the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one make a good choice for campers that enjoy spending lots of time outside of the tent enjoying the fresh air.

A few of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking light, making them easy to carry around. In near all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In calm 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 other types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing rain to roll off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the water pooling on the top. The most straightforward dome tent will have a rectangular floor, sloped sides two or more poles which cross in the center of the roof. Due to the way they are made, it is usually thought of that they are best suited for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Beneath you can browse a list 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 floor 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 nice to see Big Agnes has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your gear.
  4. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is easier to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  5. 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.
  6. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 29 square feet, the Copper Spur 2 is smaller than quite a lot of the 204 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 factor for some campers.
  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 Ripstop nylon, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of things to be positive about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

4.3 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.3 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 HV UL Bikepack tent is really good for bike packing. Here are a few other nice points not noted above which, we noticed and liked, while researching 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.

Value for money: In so much as value for your money, this tent is more costlier than the normal cost of all the two hundred and eighty-five, two-person tents we have taken a look at, this alone by itself is not a negative thing. We also need to look at other factors in-depth, as we do with every tent.

When we calculate the overall score of an individual tent, we consider a lot of conditions, finding things where the tent could beat other near-identical tents and where it is not quite as good. In this case, with an overall rating of 4.3 and the price knowledge above, It is simple enough to notice that with a ticket price of $469.95 info_outline Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 HV UL Bikepack is a good bargain even though it could be considered a tiny bit costly when set side by side with similar tents.
