User Review: Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $300
Bought this tent to cut down on weight for camping trips to the Grand Canyon. Saved me over 5 pounds vs. old tent and much to my surprise the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 proved to be a superior tent.
- Easy up, easy down
- Good in wind and rain
- Tent stuff bag easily tears
- Vent system confusing
Spent two years looking for a lighter weight tent to use in the Grand Canyon. Finally purchased the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 and was blown away with the quality, convenience and light weight. Easy up, easy down. Tent pole design makes it EASY to set up.
Packs extremely well. Held up in high winds and rain. Plenty of room for two people. Reduced my pack weight by over 5 pounds and this made a difference going down and up Grand Canyon — my back, knees and ankles say THANK YOU, Big Agnes.
Only problem I had was a tear in the stuff bag from resting on rocks along the trail. If you are getting up there in age, like I am, saving weight is extremely important to the overall quality of the hike. Go get one and enjoy!
