Summary: Favorable Reviews

It has an expansive interior, excellent quality materials, and lightweight. It' hard to find a tent like this one. A complete package indeed.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

Why does the footprint need to be sold separately? A tent-like this should include it considering its price. Maybe that's how things go now.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 2 Ultralight Classic has two doors and a peak 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 significantly smaller than some other 2-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, another camper during the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents similar to this one make a superb choice for campers that welcome spending plenty of hours outside the tent exploring.

Many of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances lightweight, making them easy to carry. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very simple 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 common of all the various sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in bad weather than other types, allowing water to roll off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, resulting in the rain pooling on the roof. The most straightforward dome tent will have a rectangular floor, sloped sides a couple of poles which converge in the center of the roof. Because of their construction, it is generally thought of that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Down below, you can browse an account of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur Ultralight Classic 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 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 things.
  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 rain.
  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 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 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. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have many attributes to be positive about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

3.1 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.1 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 Ultralight Classic tent is ideal for backpacking. Here are a few other cool things not noted above which, were noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: Featuring two, oversized drop doors for easy entry/exit, plenty of interior storage pockets, Fly vents for increased air flow and reduced condensation. 3 person: two vents and Media pockets located above sleeping area enable clean ear bud cord routing from phones or other devices.

With good ratings, a couple of reviews and headroom of 3' and 29 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your very own small home away from home. It will allow you to enjoy some really enjoyable time hanging out with nature. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can study above.

If you found this page looking for an endorsement about this particular tent, we consider, it should make for a great acquisition. If you simply happened to land on this page while browsing for a brand new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent model previously, it is possibly a good thing to look at some more similar tents.

Value for money: When thinking about value for money, this tent is the same as the normal price of all the two hundred and sixty-eight, two-person tents we have studied, this just by itself does not make it good value for money. We also need to take a look at other things in-depth, as we do with each tent.

When we measure the valuation of an individual tent, we scrutinize loads of conditions, looking for things where the tent could exceed other very similar tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with an overall rating of 4.1 and the price data above, one can view that with a price of $379.95 info_outline Big Agnes's Copper Spur 2 Ultralight Classic is a decent buy the purchase price is not expensive when set side by side with similar tents.

The ratings show that the quality and size, the tent offers make it a a good choicefor those looking for for a good quality '.2.'-person tent. It could make a decent choice for nearly all campers looking for an appropriate three-season backpacking tent to go camping in, that will serve you well for years to come.
