One of the Best I've Ever Owned

I've used it several times

The Copper Spur is a solid, comfortable, easy to set-up tent in all of the conditions I've used it in. I've taken this tent to Yellowstone, Glacier, and other locations in Montana during summer months and have had a very positive experience thus far. I've probably used the tent about 20 times by now. I know that's really not too much wear and tear to put on a tent, but it's performed perfectly for what I've needed it for over the past 2 years or so. I would definitely recommend this tent to anyone looking for a UL tent with enough space to fit 2 people and a dog, or 2 adults and a kid, or 3 adults (tight).

Copper Spur HV UL3

I've put it through the wringer

Three season, freestanding, ultralight tent Already one of our best-selling, full-featured, ultralight backpacking tents, the Copper Spur HV UL3 3-person tent just got better. Redesigned with cutting-edge features inside and out, using proprietary materials that are lighter, stronger, and equipped with hardware that makes set-up even easier. The high volume design provides ample living space in this freestanding structure. Traditional, media, and 3D bin pockets help to organize your gear without cramping your sleep space or capacity to sit up inside. Awning-style vestibules can be customized to expand living space, great for both drizzle and sun protection. Your ultimate UL home away from home.

Withstood rain and wind effortlessly

I've used it several times

Easy to set up, roomy, with easy access for multiple people (2 vestibules) made this tent feel luxurious. That it held up perfectly in wind and rain makes it an instant favorite.

Big fan of this tent

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

I was looking for a tent for my family (2 adults 1 newborn) and went for this Big Agnes. There’s lots to love about it, honestly more than I expected. I was considering the Tarptent Rainshadow 3 (single wall so (1) super light but (2) prone to condensation and (3) no stargazing from tent) but ended being discouraged by it not being freestanding (I’ve definitely been in situations you can’t stake the tent)... and also by its “tapered” shape (great for saving weight but makes the tent less livable, big downside w a baby). I have been on 2 trips so far with the Big Agnes, here are my learnings. PROs: • incredibly light • pre-bent poles make the tent super spacious (it’s easy to sit in it and play with the baby, for instance) • symmetric, which means same headroom at top and bottom of tent (again, great for feeding the baby in the tent, so that you’re not confined to the tall part of the tent) • lots of great pockets (both near sleeping area and above it) • we used a pocket to put our phone there and used an apple watch as a baby monitor — amazing :) • door holders to keep doors open — nice detail! • little velcro patches to keep doors closed without zipping them up (AMAZING to not wake baby up) • vestibules can be turned into porches (if you have 2 or 4 poles) • in general, vestibules are super flexible and can be configured in many ways • tarp/inner tent/fly nicely attach to one another with plastic clips • can be easily setup in windy conditions (just stake the tarp first, then the inner tent, the put poles) CONs: • light material is THIN so I’m not sure it’s durable • red color is meh • the super light plastic used, ie, for the clips connecting tarp/inner tent/fly seem a bit fragile • I still haven’t figured out a way to keep the porch stable (with a little bit of wind the poles collapse to the ground) • if you’re setting up in the rain you’ll get the inside wet (that’s a big pro of single wall tents like the Tarptent) • if you’re breaking down camp in the rain you’ll get the inside wet when you remove the rain fly (unless there’s someone who can help to lift 2 sides as once). Overall, though, I’d recommend this tent (unless you want something even lighter and don’t mind having a less livable tent).

Exceeded My Expectations!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The new Copper Spur HV UL 3 is easily one of the best 3 season tents on the market. Light weight, durable construction, and impressively simple to set up and take down. Sheds rain nicely without water bouncing back up into the main tent body much at all. My first overnight experience with this was a success and I look forward to really putting it to the test over the next few months and testing the durability!
