Summary: Favorable Reviews

True to what it advertised. It's absolutely 100%, a lightweight tent. I didn't feel that I was carrying it when I brought it along with me during my trip.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

Do you know what would make this tent perfect? Include the footprint with it. I had hoped that it would be included. Also, the material seems delicate. You need to take care of it to avoid problems.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 3 Platinum has two doors and a peak center height of 3' 8, which is 10 inches less than the average height of the 139 other 3 person tents we have studied. With 44 square feet of space inside, it is a little bit smaller than some other 3-person tents, and it could be a little tight for you and, up to two other campers during the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, smaller tents similar to this one are a really good choice for people that welcome spending heaps of hours outside of the tent enjoying the fresh air.

Some of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking 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 could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most common of all the various sorts of tents you will see when camping. They tend to fair better in bad weather than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, allowing the rain to pool on the top. The most straightforward dome tent should have a square footprint, sloped walls a couple of poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is generally considered that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Underneath you can find 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. Affords you somewhere 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 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 44 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 10% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative thing for some people.
  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 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 lots of attributes to be positive about. The sloping walls 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 Platinum tent is perfect for backpacking. There are a couple of other nice points not noted above which, we found and liked, while researching 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.

With good ratings, a few reviews and a center height of 3' and 44 square feet of area to sleep, this tent is like your very own little apartment. It enables you to spend some delightful time camping. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can check out above.

If you just happened to arrive on this website while browsing for a new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this model before, it is probably a good idea to look at some other comparable tents.

Value for money: When thinking about value for your money, this tent is a more pricey than the standard cost of all the one hundred and ninety-three, three-person tents we have looked at, this itself is not a negative thing. We also need to take into account other factors in detail, as we do with each tent.

When we tally up the score of a single tent, we regard plenty of things, finding areas where the tent could perform well against other comparable tents and where it is lacking. In this case, with an overall score of 4.4 and the price data above, It is simple enough to see that with a cost of $629.9478 Big Agnes's Copper Spur 3 Platinum is a very good deal though it could be considered very costly when set side by side with comparable tents.

Its ratings show that the quality and capacity the tent gives you make it a suitable purchase for those wanting a tent that can last for plenty of years.
