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.

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 193 different 2 person tents we have examined With 29 square feet of space inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 2-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, another camper all through the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents like this one can make a suitable choice for campers that welcome spending heaps of hours outside of their tent exploring.

Some of the fantastic things about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part lightweight, making them easy to carry. In nearly all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In good weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are without a doubt 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 walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, resulting in the rain pooling on the roof. The most straightforward dome tent should have a rectangular floor, slanted sides a couple of poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of their construction, it is usually thought of that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Below you can check out an account 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 a place to store shoes and other items 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. 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. 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.
  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 193 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 specifically for the Copper Spur 2 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Ripstop 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 things to be positive about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.
