Summary: Favorable Reviews

It is just an excellent replacement for my previous Big Agnes Tent. It is not that large when compared to my earlier tent, but I was looking for a light-weight type this time. So, I am pleased with this tent.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

There's a need to stake the tent correctly. Even though it is free-standing, this is not an assurance that it can stand up against strong winds, without staking.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 2 HV UL mtnGLO has two doors and a maximum center height of 3' 4, which is 12 inches less than the average height of the 189 other 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 during the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents similar to this one can make a fantastic choice for people that prefer spending loads of time outside exploring the great outdoors.

Some of the great points about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking not too heavy, making them simple to carry around. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very easy to set up. In good weather, you can do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are the most common of all the other sorts of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, resulting in the water pooling on the roof. The most basic dome tent will have a square floor, slanted sides two or more poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Due to the way they are made, it is generally thought of that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Below you can browse a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL mtnGLO 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 floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Offers you a place 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 stuff.
  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. 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 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 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 Polyurethane-coated 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 many qualities to be positive about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

Value for money: In so much as value for your dollar, this tent is a more pricey than the normal cost of all the two hundred and sixty-eight, two-person tents we have studied, all alone this is not a negative thing.

In this case, with a total rating of 3.6 and the price data above, It is simple to conclude that with a price of $348.95 info_outline Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 HV UL mtnGLO is a honest purchase even though it may be considered quite pricey when compared with comparable tents.
