Summary: Favorable Reviews

You can see that the design was carefully thought out. It's actually impressive when I assessed it as a whole.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

The poles and the zippers were not as long-lasting as I thought they would be, but its no big deal. It has already served its purpose. I've been a user of this one for about a year now, so it is kind of justifiable.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 2 HV UL has two doors and a maximum center height of 3' 4, which is 12 inches smaller than the average height of the 189 different 2 person tents we have studied. With 29 square feet of space inside, it is considerably 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 similar to this one often make an awesome choice for people who appreciate spending loads of hours outside their tent getting some air.

Some of the fantastic things about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances not too heavy, making them easy to carry around. In near all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In good 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 different types of tents you will find when camping. They tend to fair better in bad weather than other types, allowing water to roll off the sloped walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the water to pool on the top of the tent. The simplest dome tent will have a rectangular footprint, sloped walls two or more poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Because of their construction, it is usually thought of that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Beneath you can browse a list of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL 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. Affords 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. 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 summer.
  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 roomy. With a floor area of 29 square feet, the Copper Spur 2 is smaller than quite a lot of the 189 other 2 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 12% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative factor for some people.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately specifically for the Copper Spur 2 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Proprietary patterned random rip-stop 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 rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

Value for money: When thinking about value for your money, this tent is more expensive than the normal price of all the two hundred and sixty-eight, two-person tents we have looked at, all alone this is not a negative thing. We also need to look at other things in detail, as we do for every tent.

When we determine the valuation of a single tent, we look at plenty of things, looking for things where the tent could beat out other comparable tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with an overall rating of 3.8 and the price details above, It is simple to identify that with a ticket price of $299.59 info_outline Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 HV UL is a decent purchase though it may be perceived as a tiny bit expensive when compared with similar tents.
