Tent Set Up

Super easy to pack, setup, and inhabit

Green Thumbs Up Logo

Summary: Favorable Reviews

Campers who have used the tent mentioned: The new fly allows you to build an awning with trekking poles, which makes getting in and out of the tent more comfortable. They were impressed with its durability and ease of set up. Fantastic tent loved every moment I've put it to use. Well designed and would suit tall people looking for a lightweight tent. They loved everything about it, lightweight, size, fast setup. Sturdy in the wind when guyed out. MtnGlow feature is a game-changer never worry about nighttime lights again. Paired with the footprint, this tent and rain fly set up has kept us dry through downpours.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

People who bought the tent noted: Five stars except for floor it needs the extra footprint. Waterproof - OK for short periods of rain, but more extended periods could be problematic.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 3 HV UL mtnGLO 2020 has two doors and a peak center height of 3' 7, which is 11 inches less than the average height of the 144 various 3 person tents we have studied. With 41 square feet of room inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 3-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, up to two other campers all through the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents similar to this one can make an awesome choice for campers who welcome spending plenty of time outside of the tent enjoying the fresh air.

Many of the great things about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances not too heavy, making them simple to carry around. 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 can do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are the most commonly seen of all the different sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in storms than other types, allowing water to roll off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the rain pooling on the top of the tent. The simplest dome tent should have a square floor, sloped walls two or more poles which cross in the center of the roof. Because of their construction, it is usually thought of that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Down below, you can find a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL mtnGLO 2020 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. Gives you a place to store shoes and other items that can get dirty, muddy, this is a huge 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 things.
  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. 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 41 square feet, the Copper Spur 3 is smaller than quite a lot of the 144 other 3 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 sold separately specifically for the Copper Spur 3 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Ultralight double rip-stop mixed denier nylon, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have lots of qualities to be positive about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

4.3 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.3 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 3 HV UL mtnGLO 2020 tent is perfect for backpacking. There are a few other nice points not mentioned above which, we found and liked, while researching the model: New 3-D bin mezzanine in the foot provides massive, off the floor storage; Oversized ceiling pocket in the head provides great additional storage space; Media pockets provide clean earbud cord-routing from phones or other devices, New proprietary ultralight nylon double rip-stop; Mixed denier fabric offers extra tear strength and puncture resistance without adding weight and New pre-bent span pole coupled with the high-volume angle hub increases strength, stability, and shedding of rain and snow while creating optimal livable space where you need it most..

With great ratings, and headroom of 3' and 41 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your very own modest flat. It will allow you to enjoy some real quality time camping. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can read through above.

If you found this page looking for recommendations about this specific tent, we think, it should make for a good purchase. In case you just happened to land on this page while looking for a new tent having never heard of this manufacurer or this tent model previously, it is perhaps a good thing to look at a few other similar tents also.

Value for money: In so much as value for your money, this tent is a more costlier than the standard price of all the one hundred and ninety-eight, three-person tents we have taken a look at, all alone this is not a negative thing. One should also look at other things in detail, as we do for each tent.

When we measure the valuation of an individual tent, we consider tons of areas, searching for points where the tent could beat out other very similar tents and where it is lacking. In this case, with an overall rating of 4.3 and the price details above, It is simple to spot that with a cost of $549.95 Big Agnes's Copper Spur 3 HV UL mtnGLO 2020 is a very good purchase even though it may be considered very expensive when set side by side with similar tents.

The ratings show that the quality and dimensions the tent offers make it a decent choice for campers searching for a tent that can last for many years. It should make a good choice for nearly all people searching for a comfy three-season backpacking tent to camp in, that should serve you well for years to come.
