Green Thumbs Up Logo

Summary: Favorable Reviews

You have to own this one cause campers like us deserve this kind of tent. Comprising weight over quality was the thing before, but this tent breaks that theme.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

I don't honestly get why do the poles have not been given much attention. I know other buyers would say that there are no problems with it, but for me, longevity is essential. I should get the performance from it for what I paid.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 3 Ultralight Classic has two doors and a peak center height of 3' 8, which is 10 inches smaller than the average height of the 139 various 3 person tents we have studied. With 43 square feet of room inside, it is a tiny bit smaller than some other 3-person tents, and it could be a little tight for you and, up to two other campers all through the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents like this one often make a very nice choice for campers that appreciate spending loads of time outside exploring the great outdoors.

Many of the cool points about dome tents are, that they are for, the most part not too heavy, making them easy to carry around. In near all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are usually, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In calm weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are easily the most common of all the other types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to fair better in storms than other types, allowing water to roll off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, allowing the water to pool on the top. The most basic dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, sloped walls a couple of poles which cross in the center 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.

Beneath you can see 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 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 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.
  7. Low price. It is a great deal for a 3 person dome tent providing this much space. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $311.95 info_outline

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 43 square feet, the Copper Spur 3 is smaller than quite a few 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 sold 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 rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

CONCLUSION

4.5 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.5 STARS

Big Agnes's Copper Spur 3 Ultralight Classic tent is perfect for backpacking. There are a couple of other things not mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while researching 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 excellent ratings, a couple of reviews and a minimum headroom of 3' and 43 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your very own little flat. It enables you to enjoy some real quality moments in the outdoors. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can look at above.

If you found this page looking for recommendations on this specific tent, we think, it would make for an awesome buy. In case you simply happened to land on this website while looking for a new tent having not heard of this manufacture or this tent model previously, it is probably a good idea to check out a few more comparable tents.

Value for money: As far as value for your money, this tent is a cheaper than the standard cost of all the one hundred and ninety-three, three-person tents we have taken a look at, this just by itself does not make it excellent value for money. One should also take into account other factors in detail, as we do with every tent.

When we calculate the ratings of a tent, we reflect upon a good deal of areas, finding areas where the tent could beat other very similar tents and where it is not quite as good. On this occasion, with a total score of 4.5 and the price data above, It is simple to spot that with a price of $311.95 info_outline The Copper Spur 3 Ultralight Classic is a fantastic bargain and fabulously cheap in comparison with comparable tents.

Its overall score shows that the quality and space the tent gives you were not in any way skimped on to obtain a price tag significantly beneath the usual price for comparable tents. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is marked down by 31% from the manufactures MSRP. It will make an awesome choice for most campers searching for an appropriate three-season backpacking tent to go camping in, that should serve you well for years to come.
