User Review: Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $300
This tent is great. It's basically a 1-man castle! I have used this tent in all types of weather and never had any problems with it.
The setup for this tent is a breeze. I usually do it by myself and have it done in under 5 minutes . The footprint to me is a must to preserve your tent. The poles are snap to deal with and the hubs add strength to tent. The stakes are lightweight and easily go into the ground.
This tent will guy out with no problem and has been great every time I've used it. I've used it in thunderstorms with 20 plus mile an hour winds and stayed as snug as a bug in a rug. I have not taken in the snow because it is a 3 season tent and we don't get that much around here.
This tent has been poured on and handles the moisture great. The vent at the top allows it to breath and avoid the dreaded condensation. This being said you will have have some amount of condensation as with any tent, so don't expect nothing on your fly!
Room and Storage:
This tent is great as a 1-man tent! I am a large man (6'4" 265) and have no problem fitting myself and all my gear in this tent. I have also camped with my 8-year-old in this tent and fit comfortably. The 2 internal pockets are money and the vestibules are massive.
The Copper Spur packs down to a reasonable size considering its size when pitched.
Construction and Durability:
This tent has taken a beating and kept on going. I have had it for over a year and 1/2 and had no issues with it what so ever .
