    Lightweight luxury.

    The Copper Spur HV UL2 MtnGLO Tent from Big Agnes combines its innovative LED light system with a lightweight design that any backpacker can feel good about putting in their pack. MtnGlo technology is an LED lighting system sewn into the upper seams of the tent that is powered by three AAA batteries (batteries not included). Once on, the lights create a nice mood lighting that's ideal for rigging gear, playing games, checking maps, or getting that perfect tent glow shot.

    A silicone treated nylon fly and floor with fully taped seams keeps wet weather out when you're hunkered down for the night, while steep walls increases space without adding bulk to maximize space within the tent, so you can stretch out and play a game by the MtnGlo lights while you wait out the storm. When you're ready to break camp, the flexible lighting system allows the tent to be easily packed away just like any other tent, and the DAC aluminum Featherlite poles keep the trail weight under three pounds for comfort when you're logging long miles on a daily basis.

    • Backpacking-worthy weight with the creature comforts of home
    • Built-in MtnGlo LED lights illuminate interior of tent
    • All mesh body is ultralight and breathable

    I'm not seeing evidence for high praise

      I finally got around to using this tent. i like that it is pretty roomy for a 2-person, the MtnGLO is great feature without adding much weight and compatible with USB phone chargers, has tons of convenient pockets, is airy even with rainfly, and worked well in the rain. the triangle MtnGLo gear loft provides nice extra light and I like the bottom pocket to stash my wallet and phone, while still having the main loft part to stash stuff.

      what I dislike are: My biggest complaint are the zippers. the zippers are not one handed operation, because they constantly get snagged on fabric when trying to unzip and zip on the rainfly. The zippers are also not one handed operations on the tent either; i do not like the tent zipper being opposite of the staked out rain fly zipper, so you cannot quickly ingress/egress since you have to crawl under the staked out rainfly flap to reach the tent zippers. I really dislike the cross pole having to rest ontop of the other poles without any protection between the metal. the flap retaining toggle and loops are positioned too low on the pole and should be higher up so you don't have to fidget to get it just right. Again, not a one handed operation. The loop for the flap toggle is a loop of flat flmsy nylon, so you have to fidget to get the toggle in, especially when wet. the matching footprint doesn't have adjustable straps, so when poled the footprint doesn't remain taught and you cannot tighten it. the rainfly guy lines are too short which limit options for staking. I would have prefered the pole clips over the velcro pole tabs so I don't need two hands to attach. And of course, the included tent stakes are useless.

      The 3triple A batteries for each MtnGlo and the flimsy plastic non-weatherproof battery housing is disappointing. A single CR123A, a flat lithium watch type batteries or a rechargeable battery pack like for mobile phones would be lighter and more durable. Also being able to use one power source or being able to daisy chain MtnGlo accessories would be useful.

      Great Design + Utility

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I lived in this tent in Central Asia last summer, and I was really glad I spent the extra money for the new features of the MtnGLO. The tent is designed in a really intuitive way, and the fact that you can just lay it out, pull out the poles and everything just pops together means that assembly is super fast if you arrive at your camp site late or in the rain. I did buy the footprint which fits easily into the bag provided for the tent, and while I didn't hike with the setup, it was really light. I liked having the footprint for some extra protection on the ground as the material is thin and when I didn't have time to clear the ground below it provided some extra cover.
      The tent stood up to high winds from the plains and lots of rain, and in fact having the two vestibules was great because I could keep gear under them and zip up the sides, and everything stayed bone dry (and safe from herders' curious yaks and goats). Also the material dries quickly, especially in the sun.
      I am 5'10" and had room for extra gear at my feet in the tent (could also fit my dog down there if I was home), which was nice. The lighting system was great, as it had 2 settings for more or less light and made reading or working in the tent at night easy vs. headlamp or hanging lantern which is at times challenging. Batteries lasted well too. Pockets, as others have mentioned worked well, and I didn't feel cramped getting dressed at 5'10" in the tent.
      The reflective stripes on the guylines made it easy to find the tent at night when returning with a headlamp (seems silly, but it was nice vs. others wandering aimlessly in and out of trees looking for their green tents). Stakes were good quality.
      Felt very secure in the tent, but didn't sacrifice weight to do so. I would feel fine with another person in it and even a small-medium sized dog, though I would be careful with the paws and the floor. Highly recommend.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I spent 16+ nights in this tent last summer in the Rockies on a few backpacking trips. It was just my luck I was lulled to sleep on the majority of nights (10+) by torrential lightning storms. This tent kept me and my gear bone dry. I want to emphasize these were some really nasty Rocky Mountain storms where it down poured (hail/rain) literally all night with substantial winds/wind gusts added in for fun. This tent performed flawlessly though it all.

      The tent sets up, breaks down, and packs away easily. While the lights are a cool feature, most days after a long day of hiking I was too tired to use them. They do light up the tent to find things, but I would not rely on them for reading. I will say they were useful for lighting up the tent at night to make it easy to find during bathroom runs, tying the food up, etc.

      I am husky at 5'9, 200lb, and I feel the room in the tent is ample. Plenty of room in the vestibules to store my pack and gear and sitting up to get dressed is no issue. When needed, I could also bring my 65L pack in the tent and still had plenty of room. I cannot comment on sharing with another backpacker but it seems there would be no major issues if needed.

      The only "issue" with the tent I can really think of is just being careful with the zippers as the material is thin and can get caught if you unzip the doors too quickly.

      Based upon my experiences in the mountains this tent is bullet proof and I would have no hesitations in buying again. It amazes what this ultra light material can withstand. I was hesitant to spend the $$, but Big Agnes has made me a customer for life. Looking at some 1P BA tents for my CO Trail Hike this summer (to cut some weight) but the Copper Spur will probably be in my pack....highly recommended!

      Pretty amazing tent.

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

      I'm 5'6" and 200lbs. My hiking buddy was 6'5" and 175lbs. We shared this tent and had plenty of room to change clothes, put away our sleeping bags and our sleeping pads. He was able to sit up. We had plenty of room and only touched while we were both lying on our backs. There was almost no condensation in the tent. There is plenty of ventilation but kept some of our heat in to help stave off the 35 degree outside temperature!. Very impressed with the setup, weight, two vestibules and overall look and feel.

      Lightweight and Thoughtful Design

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Super quick setup/take down. Uses traditional tubular, cinch-top stow sack that all easily fits into when rolled up. Love the well-placed stash pockets (there are 6) and the mtnGLO genuinely is the best thing ever. No need for headlamp in the tent.

      Double door/vestibule design is very convenient. Walls are steep enough to feel like you have good headroom. The material/mesh all feels very nice and holds up quite well considering how lightweight it is. Packs down quite small. So small that it may not even be able to be strapped down by both side compression straps on your backpack.

      My only critical feedback is that I wish it had a tiny bit wider footprint. That being said, it's a UL tent so it makes sense to make it as small/light as possible. The two vestibules are large enough for your gear so no need to keep much inside the tent.

      Lightweight and Thoughtful Design

      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 sub-3lb 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 two-person shelter having the extra shoulder room can make a world of difference for sitting up in the tent, stuffing sleeping bags 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!
