Summary: Favorable Reviews

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


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

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 peak center height of 3' 4, which is 11 inches smaller than the average height of the 204 other 2 person tents we have studied. With 29 square feet of room inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 2-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, another camper throughout the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents like this one generally make an ideal choice for campers who appreciate spending lots of time outside their tent getting some air.

Many of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances light, making them simple to carry. In most all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very easy 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 different sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to fair better in bad weather than other types, allowing rain to roll off the sloped walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the rain to pool on the top. The most basic dome tent will have a square floor, slanted walls a couple of poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Due to their construction, it is typically considered that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Below you can find an account 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 need 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. Offers you a place to store shoes and other things 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 stuff.
  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 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. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  8. Low price. It is a great deal for a 2 person dome tent that provides this much space. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $359.982

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 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 lots of qualities to rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

3.9 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.9 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 HV UL tent is perfect for backpacking. Here are a couple of other points not noted above which, we found and liked, while reviewing the model: Design features high volume pole architecture resulting in steeper walls without adding weight, Proprietary double ripstop pattern nylon is 20% stronger than regular nylon, providing maximum durability and Fly and floor feature a unique weave made with a high tenacity yarn and high filament count which increases fabric tear strength by 25%, decreases weight of the material and improves water resistance.

With wonderful ratings, a decent amount of reviews and headroom of 3' and 29 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your very own little home away from home. This will enable you to enjoy some real quality time camping. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can study above.

If you came to this page looking for recommendations about this specific tent, we think, it should make for a good buy. If you simply happened to arrive on this website while browsing for a brand new tent having not heard of this brand or this tent model previously, it is possibly a good idea to look at a few other comparable tents.

Value for money: When thinking about value for your money, this tent is cheaper than the usual cost of all the two hundred and eighty-five, two-person tents we have taken a look at, this by itself does not make it good value for money. One should also look at other things in-depth, as we do with every tent.

When we measure the score of a tent, we study tons of conditions, finding areas where the tent could beat out other comparable tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with an overall rating of 4.0 and the price conclusions above, we can view that with a ticket price of $359.982 Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 HV UL is a fair deal and cheap when compared with comparable tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and dimensions the tent offers were not skimped on to finish up with a price significantly under the normal price for similar tents. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is reduced by 20% from the manufactures suggested retail price. It could make a remarkable choice for most campers looking for an adequate three-season backpacking tent to go camping in, that should serve you well for years to come.
