Summary: Favorable Reviews

As this tent is due to go on sale in January 2020, we will have to focus on the reviews of the older HV UL 2. That one received tons of great reviews stating it was surprisingly light considering It was the entry-level Copper Spur. The two doors were also viewed as a significant plus for such a small tent. All in all, this 2020 version looks to have improved slightly on the older version.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

As this tent is due to go on sale in January 2020, we will have to focus on the reviews of the older HV UL 2. That one received quite a few comments stating the footprint should have been included and was an expensive extra. Even though it is a small tent, quite a few people felt it would be difficult to accommodate the recommended number of campers. The headroom was also mentioned a few times. All in all, this 2020 version looks to have improved slightly on the older version.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Copper Spur 4 HV UL 2020 has two doors and a peak center height of 4' 2, which is 14 inches less than the average height of the 130 other 4 person tents we have examined With 57 square feet of space inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, up to three other campers during the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one often make a fantastic choice for people that appreciate spending lots of time outside their tent getting some air.

Some of the cool things about dome tents are, that they are generally speaking not too heavy, making them simple to carry. In near all cases, 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 the most common of all the various types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to fair better in the rain than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the slanted sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, allowing the rain to pool on the top of the tent. The most straightforward dome tent should have a rectangular footprint, sloped walls two or more poles which converge in the center of the roof. Due to their construction, it is typically considered that they are best for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Underneath you can check out an account of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Copper Spur HV UL 2020 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. Gives you somewhere to store shoes and other items 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 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. Breathable. The Copper Spur's interior uses a mesh fabric on the inside of the tent, and this helps maximize the flow of air. With the extra ventilation, and this tent is great for use in the warmer months.
  6. 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.
  7. Available in other sizes. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 57 square feet, the Copper Spur 4 is smaller than quite a few of the 130 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 14% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative thing for some people.
  3. No windows. With no windows it is not easy to keep the tent cool on a hot summers night.
  4. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately specifically for the Copper Spur 4 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Ultralight double rip-stop mixed denier nylon, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  5. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures site the last time we checked.
  6. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have lots of qualities to rave 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 4 HV UL 2020 tent is suitable for backpacking. Here are a few other things not noted above which, were found and liked, while reviewing the model: Redesigned with new features inside and out, using proprietary materials that are lighter, stronger, and equipped with hardware that makes set-up even easier. , NEW pre-bent span pole with high-volume angle hub (UL1), 4-way high-volume hub design (UL2, UL3, UL4) increases strength, stability, and shedding and Smooth-closing, dual-zipper doors with easy-grip pulls allow for ease of entry, exit and quick, reach-through access..

With wonderful ratings, and a peak height of 4' and 57 square feet of space to enjoy, this tent is like your very own little flat. This will enable you together with 2 other campers to share some delightful time in the outdoors together. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can study above.

If you found this page looking for an endorsement about this specific tent, we think, it should make for a good acquisition. In case you just happened to arrive on this page while browsing for a new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this tent before, it is probably a good thing to check out some more comparable tents.

Value for money: As far as value for your dollar, this tent is undoubtedly more costly than the usual price of all the one hundred and fifty-one, four-person tents we have taken a look at, this by itself is not a negative thing. One should also take a look at other areas in detail, as we do for each tent.

When we measure the valuation of an individual tent, we scrutinize a lot of stuff, looking for areas where the tent could outdo other very similar tents and where it is coming up short. In this case, with an overall rating of 4.3 and the price details above, one can spot that with a cost of $649.95 Big Agnes's Copper Spur 4 HV UL 2020 is a great bargain though it could be perceived as very costly when set side by side with comparable tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and size the tent provides make it a good choice for people searching for a tent that can be used for plenty of years. It will 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 for years to come.
