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 12 inches smaller than the average height of the 189 other 2 person tents we have studied. 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 throughout the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents similar to this one often can make a superb choice for people who prefer spending plenty of time outside their tent getting some air.

A few of the great things about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances light, making them simple to carry around. In near all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very simple to set up. In calm weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are the most common of all the various types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to fair better in bad weather than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, allowing the water to pool on the top. The simplest dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, sloped walls a couple of poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Because of their construction, it is generally thought of that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

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

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 ground with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Gives you a place to store shoes and other things 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 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 downpours.
  6. 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 few 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 sold separately designed 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 many things to be positive about. The sloping walls do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

Our Ratings: 3.8 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 Platinum tent is ideal for backpacking. There are a couple of other cool things not mentioned above which, were noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: The Platinum is the gram counterís epitome of having cake and eating it too., All seams taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (No PVC or VOC's) and Velcro tabs connect fly to pole structure providing perfect pitch and extra stability.

Value for money: When contemplating value for money, this tent is undoubtedly pricier than the average cost of all the two hundred and sixty-eight, two-person tents we have studied, this alone is not a negative thing. One should also think about other areas in detail, as we do with each tent.

In this case, with a total score of 4.3 and the price knowledge above, we can notice that with a price of $599.95 info_outline The Copper Spur 2 Platinum is a good purchase although it may be considered quite costly when set side by side with comparable tents.
