I am actually going to review the Copper Spur 3 UL, the 3 man verson of this tent,
This is a superior tent in just about every respect.
I have done a video review.
Here is the url:

The tent is palace for 2 and comfortably sleeps 3 when gear is stored in the vestbules.
Reflective guy lines and tabs are thoughtfully placed.
The color-coded buckles and shock corded hub-pole system make set up a snap.
At total packed weight of 4lb 6oz, this tent is light enough for a solo backpacker, but it just about disappears when split among 2 or 3 campers.
High bathtub walls, mesh top, and properly placed vents make for a dry and airy shelter.
The cross bar provides good headroom for sitting and playing cards.
It is a free-standing tent, but when all the stakes are deployed, this system is tenacious in high winds.
It is a 3 season tent that is useful for most camping conditions. It could be used for winter camping, but I have not done so.


The folks at Big Agnes clearly get out in the woods pretty regularly. The design features demonstrate experience with wilderness and actual thought about what a camper wants and needs.

I have the Coppur Spur 1
I love this tent for solo. Easy set up, The tent weighs in at 3 lbs packed.
Good Ventilation and the Fly covers right to the ground to stop splash up on the tent and the wind wistling through the tent. If it is one person solo canoeing It is a peachy fine tent.

Bought this tent for my dog and myself. Previous I had the Seedhouse and couldn't stand it, felt too cramped. This tent seems to have more room. Lightweight and easy to set up.
