Here's what others have to say...

Is this the newer version of this tent? (2014+)

Responded on

Hi Mike! Thanks for your question.

This tent is the 2015 version.

What is the difference between Packaged Weight, Trail Weight and Fast Pitch Weight (Fast Fly Weight as Big Agnes calls it).

Also what does the footprint weigh?

Best Answer Responded on

Here is how Big Agnes defines the different weights for their tents:

Packed weight:
This is the heaviest you can expect your tent to weigh, straight out of the box or from the store. This weight refers to all packaging, hang tags, as well as the stuff sacks, fly, body, stakes, poles, and guy lines.

Trail weight:
This is the lightest you can expect your tent to weigh, stripped of everything but the essentials. This number reflects the weight of just the fly (no guy lines), body, and poles.

Fast-fly weight:
This is the weight of your fly, footprint and poleset only.

Copper Spur UL4 info:

Packed Weight - 5lb 12 oz (92 oz) or 2610grams
Trail Weight - 5lb 5 oz (85 oz) or 2410grams
Fast Fly Weight - 4lb 4 oz (68oz) or1930grams
Footprint Weight - 11 oz or 312grams

Desert Camping

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Used this yesterday for a family desert camp at the edge of the Persian Gulf. It was a bit windy with the spring shamal wind blowing. We got the tent up ok but the provided pegs did not hold in the sand. I changes them for some others I had with my sun shade and we had no problems. The tent was warm and well ventilated as the temperature fell during the night. I main use will be our holiday next year as we fly to camp in the south korea and hike in the mountains.

Awesome & Light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This tent has been on backpacking trips and rafting adventures and has been a great addition to our outdoor gear. Its light and easy to set up, and of course I love the quality of Big Agnes gear. This tent kept us dry in multiple back to back rainy days and held up well in moderate winds.

Nothing Like It

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

You will never be sorry you purchased this tent. Took it on the JMT for a week with three other guys, two of us are on the large size. All four of us fit with no problem, though we slept the "short" way, not the long way the Big Agnes diagram pictures. In other words, the 86" width allows all but very tall people to lay that way, and it gives four guys an extra 10" of shoulder room. One of the guys still had his pack above his head. The ample vestibules sheltered the other packs and our boots with no problem.
The weight-to-quality-and durability value of this tent cannot be beat. If you include the footprint (which you should), your total tent weight/person with four people is about 1.5 pounds/person. That's for near bomb-proof shelter.
The way the door is attached to the floor is odd, but you get used to it. I am sure there is a good reason for it, since Big Agnes puts much thought into their design. Love having the two doors and two vestibules.

Big Agnes' diagram shows people sleeping in it the "short" way. I think they intended this in order to eliminate crawling over one another to get out the door.
