Doing PCT next year with wife...trying to...

Doing PCT next year with wife...trying to decide between this or Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2...know these are in the highside of what people usually take but if spending 5 months outside willing to sacrifice 1.5 lbs for a little comfort and durability...anyone have a preference?

I am also looking for a tent for thu-hiking the pct, on previous camping trips I have been on tents of this style have had issues with rain down around the feet. It seemed to be caused by the fly not completely covering the tent where it met the ground. so, just a heads up.

MSR Nook. And always chose comfort/durability over weight.

We have used the BA Copper Spur UL2 for a couple of months now including 5 nights on the Benton MacKaye trail in GA and a couple of nights in Yellowstone Nat. park. It seems like we sacrificed durability for size when we bought this tent to replace the smaller BA tent that we were using. We did take on a little water once and we noticed that the sipper doesn't seem to be performing as well after getting a little dust in them while camping in Idaho and WY. We have our doubts about this tent holding up as well as the smaller BA that we had.
