Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

I am not satisfied with the poles. They look cheap. I don't know, but I do have a feeling that it will not stand up to strong wind and rain.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 3 HV UL mtnGLO has two doors and a peak center height of 3' 7, which is 11 inches smaller than the average height of the 139 different 3 person tents we have examined With 41 square feet of room inside, it is considerably 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 suggested for use in, smaller tents similar to this one generally make a really good choice for people who prefer spending loads of hours outside of their tent exploring.

Many of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part not too heavy, making them simple to carry. In most all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very easy 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 without a doubt the most commonly seen of all the different sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to fair better in storms than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the rain to pool on the roof. The most straightforward dome tent will have a rectangular floor, slanted walls two or more poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Because of their construction, it is usually considered that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Beneath you can see an account of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL mtnGLO 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. Offers you somewhere to store shoes and other things 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. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  7. Low price. It is a great deal for a 3 person dome tent providing this much space. Not a lot of tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $461.982

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 41 square feet, the Copper Spur 3 is smaller than quite a lot of the 139 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 factor for some campers.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately specifically for the Copper Spur 3 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Polyurethane-coated 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 heaps of attributes to be positive about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

3.7 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.7 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 3 HV UL mtnGLO tent is suitable for backpacking. Here are a couple of other nice points not noted above which, we noticed and liked, while researching the model: Tent body is proprietary patterned random rip-stop nylon breathable and polyester mesh, Light routing that keeps the light above your head on the ceiling where you need it most and High volume angle hub increases strength by 25% and the usable interior volume by 20% when compared to previous versions of the Copper Spur.

With half decent ratings, a few reviews and a minimum headroom of 3' and 41 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your own miniature flat. It will enable you to enjoy some real quality time camping. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can study above.

If you found this page looking for suggestions on this specific tent, our view is, it would make for a decent buy. If you just happened to land on this website while browsing for a brand new tent having never heard of this brand or this model before, it is perhaps a good idea to check out some more comparable tents also.

Value for money: In terms of value for your dollar, this tent is more competitive than the average price of all the one hundred and ninety-three, three-person tents we have looked at, all alone this does not make it good value for money. We also need to think about other areas in-depth, as we do with every tent.

When we tally up the valuation of a tent, we examine a good deal of areas, looking for things where the tent could excel against other very similar tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with an overall rating of 3.7 and the price data above, It is simple enough to view that with a price of $461.982 The Copper Spur 3 HV UL mtnGLO is a good deal and cheap when compared with similar tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and dimensions the tent gives you could possibly have been lightly skimped on to obtain a price significantly under the normal price for similar tents. It is also worth noting it is reduced by 16% from the manufactures MSRP. It will make a decent choice for nearly all campers searching for an adequate three-season backpacking tent to go camping in, that should serve you well.
