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 12 inches smaller than the average height of the 126 various 3 person tents we have studied. With 41 square feet of room inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 3-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, up to two other campers throughout the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents similar to this one can generally make a superb choice for people who prefer spending heaps of time outside their tent getting some air.

A few of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances not too heavy, making them easy to carry around. 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 calm weather, you can do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are the most common of all the different sorts of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in bad weather than other types, allowing rain to roll off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the water pooling on the top. The most straightforward dome tent should have a rectangular floor, slanted sides two or more poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is typically thought of that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Down below, you can browse 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 need 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 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 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 spacious. With a floor area of 41 square feet, the Copper Spur 3 is smaller than quite a lot of the 126 other 3 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 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 many qualities to rave about. The sloping walls 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 good for backpacking. Here are a couple of other points not noted above which, we found and liked, while reviewing 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 acceptable ratings, a decent amount of reviews and a center height of 3' and 41 square feet of space to enjoy, this tent is like your very own modest home away from home. This allows you to spend some delightful moments exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can check out above.

If you found this website looking for recommendations about this actual tent, we think, it should make for a decent buy. In case you simply happened to land on this page while looking for a brand new tent having not heard of this manufacture or this model previously, it is possibly a good idea to look at some more similar tents.

Value for money: When thinking about value for your dollar, this tent is a more pricier than the standard price of all the one hundred and eighty, three-person tents we have taken a look at, this by itself is not a negative thing. We also need to take a look at other things in detail, as we do with every tent.

When we tally up the score of a single tent, we regard plenty of stuff, looking for points where the tent could beat out other comparable tents and where it is lacking. In this case, with a total rating of 3.6 and the price knowledge above, one can view that with a ticket price of $379.89 info_outline Big Agnes's Copper Spur 3 HV UL mtnGLO is a decent deal even though it may be thought of as quite pricey when compared with similar tents.

The ratings show that the quality and size the tent offers make it a honest choice for campers looking for a tent that will last for a few years. It should make an ok choice for nearly all campers looking for an adequate three-season backpacking tent to go camping with, that should serve you well.
