Summary: Favorable Reviews

It's unavailable that I was able to set this up in just a matter of 2 minutes. I really can't believe it. The headroom of this tent is high. I'm 6 feet tall and I was able to stand freely.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

The only complaint that I have is the zippers used, eats the surrounding fabric, which tends to destroy it.


SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 2 Platinum has two doors and a maximum 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 space inside, it is significantly 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 approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one often can make a suitable choice for campers who appreciate spending plenty of time outside the tent exploring.

A few of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part lightweight, making them simple 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 easily the most commonly seen of all the various types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in storms than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, resulting in the rain pooling on the top of the tent. The simplest dome tent will have a rectangular floor, sloped sides a couple of poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of their construction, it is typically thought of that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Down below, you can see an account of the tent's pros and cons.

Click or Tap on the Tab you Want to See!

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur Platinum 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. 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 good 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 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 spacious. 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 thing 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 Ripstop nylon, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures site the last time we looked.
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of attributes to rave about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

Value for money: As far as value for your money, this tent is unquestionably more pricey than the average cost of all the two hundred and eighty-five, two-person tents we have taken a look at, all alone this is not a negative thing. We also need to think about other areas in detail, as we do with each tent.

When we calculate the valuation of a single tent, we regard loads of conditions, searching for things where the tent could exceed other near-identical tents and where it is coming up short.
