Ultralight and Ultra-bright.
Solving the backpacker's dilemma of sacrificing strength for weight savings, the Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 1 mtnGLO Tent offers shaves significant weight while reinforcing its structural integrity and increasing usable head space. This 1-peson, 3-season tent is an ideal solution for the ambitious backpacker seeking maximum efficiency on the trail—all without cramping their sleeping experience or being susceptible to premature rips and tears. It's even upgraded with mtnGLO technology, which uses a rechargeable LED strand for extra lighting when you're playing cards on rainy days and accessing items before bedtime.
The camping gurus at Big Agnes achieve a high-strength tent structure by using double ripstop nylon that's 20% stronger than previous versions, yet still impressively lightweight. Backing up its feathery disposition, the tent features an outstanding trail weight of 2.2-pounds and a fast-pitch option (with separately sold footprint) that weighs just 1.6-pounds. All seams are fully sealed with waterproof polyurethane tape, ensuring outside moisture doesn't dampen your camping experience. The fly's single vent prevents you from sweating profusely at night, with mesh walls and ceilings on the tent optimizing ventilation.

- Q & A
Luxurious, Light, and Lights!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
It used to be that in the world of backpacking shelters you could either have a lightweight tent that sacrificed features, durability, ventilation, and weatherproofing, or you could have an 8lb fortress that would take up half of your backpack. Not anymore! You can now have a 2lb tent that is double walled, has a usable vestibule, abundant interior space and lighting! Big Agnes improved on a tent that already seemed perfect. Sitting in this tent it feels incredibly spacious with the 25% increase in usable area in the upper part of the tent over the previous model. For a one-person shelter having the extra shoulder room can make a world of difference for sitting up in the tent or changing. I also love not having to sleep w/ my headlamp around my neck. The lights don't interfere with packing the tent down and seem quite durable. Another bonus are the tent pockets that are positioned to be above the user's head when lying down. I can listen to my favorite podcasts as I fall asleep without having to worry about damaging my headphones or getting my phone wet on the tent floor. There is not a tent on the market that exceeds across the board like the Copper Spur does in usable space, weight, weatherproofing, features, and warranty. This tent is a 10/10!
