    Travel fast and light, and then sleep like a baby.

    The luxuries of car camping may be nice, but they come with a steep price—crowded campgrounds, dusty campsites, neighbors with little fluffy dogs yapping all night, pungent outhouses, and the general feeling that you're sleeping in the suburbs, rather than a remote mountain area. Escape the riff raff (or at least be the riff that proceeds the raff) with the lightweight and roomy Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 2-Person 3-Season Tent. Big Agnes built this tent with the wilderness enthusiast in mind and gave it a high-volume design to increase living space when you're waiting out a storm or just sipping on a little boxed wine from the comfort of your sleeping bag after a long day on the trail.

    Building off the success of the original Copper Spur, Big Agnes gave this high-volume version of the tent a four-way hub design that increases the strength of the tent by 25% and livable space by 20% from the original Copper Spur, so you can sleep easy when you're camped on a high-elevation pass and wind starts to push the walls of the tent sideways—well, as easily as you can. When the winds do let up and you muster up the willpower to take a leak, the two large doors will make it easy to slip outside before your tent mate thinks the wind blew you away. And if that tent partner just happens to have a bit of a snoring problem, then just throw your music player in the oversized mesh pocket with cord routing and keep that playlists of bowling noises and whale noises cranked up as you slip off into The Land of Nod.

    • An ultralight tent ideal for long backpacking trips
    • Two-person capacity with high-volume design
    • Four-way hub pole system increases strength of tent
    • Double ripstop rain fly with fully taped seams
    • Breathable mesh and ripstop canopy for clear nights
    • Durable and lightweight poles with ultralight plastic clips
    • Fast fly setup available (footprint not included)
    • Media pockets above sleeping area with cord routing for headphones
    • Item #BAG00B4

    Horrible Customer Service - Flimsy Tent

      I never write reviews, but I had such a horrible experience with this product that I had to share! I only used the tent 4 times and already there was a huge hole in the top seam of the tent. I take really good care of my products and was really disappointed that this happened. Unfortunately, you can only work with Big Agnes directly for any issues with the product and their customer service is the absolute WORST! They make you pay for everything - the cost of shipping, the cost of repairs, etc. They will not even offer you a replacement item or a refund - they automatically fix it once they receive it and ask you to pay for the cost. Very sad that I spent so much money on this tent and haven't been taken care of at all for how horrible the quality is.

      Lighter but pole durability lacking

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had two other versions of this tent and loved them. Been a loyal fan of the double vestibules, packability and weight as well how it secures fairly well in a decent wind. However, while each newer version keeps getting lighter, it appears that it is also getting more fragile. Lately, the pole systems seem to lack the durability of older models. I have had 2 poles bend during set up as well as1 pole break in the latest version of the tent (in not that high of a wind). (Big Agnes response also seems to be lacking which has been a big disappointment. In the latest attempt to repair and replace the item, they quoted me $4 for the pole segment that broke, plus $20 maximum for shipping [stating that it would most likely be less]. They ended up charging $30 for shipping and offered no reasonable explanation why they suggested much less but charged far more when attempting to make an informed decision whether to repair.)

      Lighter but pole durability lacking

      Lightweight + Spacious

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

      My husband and I have had an old Fly Creek UL 2 (not the HV version) for several years now. We got to test this tent out over a weekend and I want to add one to the collection now!

      It was snug with both of us being in there, but not uncomfortable. Definitely roomier then the fly creek. For lightweight backpacking I think this is an ideal size for two people, but if you're bringing along a doggo, I would definitely consider the 3P size instead.

      The fly is easy to set up and remove. The vestibules are large enough that we fit our 60 Liter Black hole duffels into them without blocking the doorways. They added velcro to the door of the fly as well as on the side wall so you can just velcro it open if you want. Really liked this detail because you can simply pull the door off the outside of the fly when you're ready to zip up for the night.

      Weather was pretty cold when we tested this out, probably 30-40s at night. I noticed some condensation on the fly in the morning, but we were totally dry and toasty inside of the tent. I've woken up several times in other tents to find everything that was touching the walls of the tent soaked.

      I only noticed the one internal media pocket, but it's really large and more than capable of holding the usual stuff (headlamps, phones etc.).

      Poles are color co-ordinated for easy set up. Teardown was quick and easy with two people. Probably took us under 5 minutes and it packs up nice and small. 10/10 would sleep in again and would be glad to take this tent on a backpacking trip

      The Way To Go For A 2P UL Tent

      This is my 2nd full backpacking season with this tent. Just got back from a 4 day trip in the Winds where we experienced all the things - high wind, rain and a hail/snow dusting combo.

      The Way To Go For A 2P UL Tent

      very disappointed

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

      This was my first ever primo tent, and I was super excited to get it as a Christmas present ($350!). I had been rocking the $30 Wal-Mart Coleman special than weighed 15 lbs for 15 years. This UVL2 tent broke on its second trip. When setting it up, a pole snapped. Then, when opening a zipper, the zipper came off. I should mention that I never snapped a pole or broke a zipper in 15 years with my cheap, ugly Coleman tent, and I used it HUNDREDS of times. I thought for sure Big Agnes would be happy to repair this since it's brand, not covered. If you want to shell out big bucks for a light tent, get one that will last, not this one.

      Amazing tent for the price!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      On the second trip with this tent we did a 4 night adventure that included 2 days of rain, 35+ mph wind, and 30 degree low temps! Tent stayed dry, not a drop inside. Held the warmth in and kept the cold out. The stakes worked great and held up. Light weight, easy set up. Really happy with the purchase, I would recommend!

      Best tent I’ve ever used

        I’m so glad I got this tent. The thing is insanely light. Weighs around 2.5 pounds which is insane. It’s super easy to set up and take down. It’s a nice sized two man tent, it gave me and my brother both plenty of space to sleep in.

        Great Tent

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have used this tent in numerous backpacking trips, so far no issues. Light weight, durable, easy to set up, plenty of room, i truly love this tent.

        Great Tent

          I"be used this tent a few times for trips to the Sierras and this tent is perfect. I used it in the summer time so didn't get to test the fly against rain but it did drop to freezing temperatures and the condensation was not a problem. This tent is super light weight and easy to pitch. Lots of room inside to move around and change clothes. The doors on either side are also incredibly useful. My partner always gets up in the middle of the night and this works out great so she doesn't have to wake me up. The only thing I didn't like was that the zippers on the fly get stuck on the material occasionally but other than that this tent has been great. If you're looking for a excellent three season tent that is lightweight this is the one.

          Never again.....disappointed

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

          Had high hopes for this tent as I already own the 3 and 4 person. Took it out for the first time last night. It literally leaked like a sieve. It was raining of course, but the ceiling was so wet it began to drip all over my gear. At 2 AM, I had to hike out of the woods in the pouring rain. I should've listened to other reviews stating the same problem. There was so much water on the ceiling that my dog was licking it off! I doubt I will ever purchase another Big Agnes tent. I don't mind a little bit of condensation, but this was straight up ridiculous. And once you hike out in the middle of the night in the pouring rain, it's not something you're likely to forget. This tent will be returned immediately. I really wanted to like this tent but obviously there is a problem. Big Agnes lost this customer, that's for sure!

          Yes Matt, just my 2 person. I water tested my others in the yard with a hose and had no issue. I'm rethinking my decision to never buy another BA tent. I sure miss the weight and space of that tent. I'm really, really hoping this was just a defective product.

          Same thing happened to me. I have the 1p for myself and the 2p for myself and the dog. The worst part is when you call BA for support and even send the rainfly back to them they will tell you it is fully operational and send it back. What a joke of customer service in today's world. They lost me as a customer too.

          Current owner of the UL2. After reading how their customer service is from this and others I too will no longer be buying their products.

          Plenty of other good products and companies out there.

          Awesome UL Tent!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Definitely my favorite UL backpacking tent out there at the moment. The new HV design maximizes room which is always a plus with lighter tents that often need to shave room in their design to take weight off.

          Set up is extremely easy, quick, and painless. The double doors are also a great feature so your and your tent partner don't have to wrestle each other while one of you gets out of the tent.

          This is a fully featured UL backpacking tent that leaves nothing to be desired. I'm looking forward to many more days on the trail with it.

          Definitely pick up the footprint as well. A huge addition to save the bottom of the tent from use while also being able to use the Fast Fly option.

          It leaks

            I have had this in a few serious storms and it leaks. I contacted big agnes and they tried to say its condensation but i have had this in many types of weather . The only time its wet is when it rains. The fly becomes saturated. I was told i could email them pictures to prove the fly was saturated and they ignored them afterwords. the only response was send it back and they wouldnt garuntee the others wouldnt leak i assume the company knows their product isnt water proof because they wont verify their was a manufacturing error so why replace if all of them do the same thing. I know others have experienced the same issue because i know someone else who has one too.

            Agreed, it does (leak). I've tested the tent all over the world, and in all rainy conditions (Iceland and Morocco), the fly saturated and very quickly created a nonstop misting of the interior. Very different than interior condensation (which is a real, but challenging situation to deal with). Sad, because otherwise I really love everything about this tent...

            Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 Tent

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

            Love it!

            You can read the tech specs and know that this a light tent, but its hard to really understand how light this tent is until you have it in hand. I was blown away!

            Set up was as smooth as with any tent I've used. The vestibule is color coded at the corners so it is easy to line up.

            We used this tent with two regular size Big Agnes Air Core sleeping pads. The fit was perfect. My girlfriend and I are both fairly short (5'7" and 5'3"), and we had room for our packs at our feet. I was really blown away by how spacious the tent is internally. The short corss-pole on the top really helps. It keeps the walls vertical, so when you sit up you're not hitting a slanted wall.

            One feature that I really liked was the large loop inside the door. When setting up or taking down your sleeping arrangement, you can tuck the door back and out of the way by putting it through the loop. I also really enjoyed the double zippers on both doors and vestibules.

            Overall: A really lightweight, low volume tent that feel spacious on the inside.

            The Way to Go for a 2P UL Tent

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            The "new and improved" Copper Spur is, in my opinion, the way to go if you are looking for the lightest option that doesn't sacrifice on roominess, access, freestanding, ect.. When comparing directly against other similar options(Hubba Hubba NX, Nemo Dagger 2p), you are getting a tent that is about 12 oz lighter(packed weight) while providing adequate head space and enough overall room for two 6 ft tall adults to sleep comfortably.

            The only real complaint I have about this tent is that it tapers too much at the feet(from 52in at the head to 42 in at the feet), which is fine if you have 2 rounded sleeping pads but a little tight with two rectangle options(20 inches is regular width). The other two tents are 50 inches wide at both ends.

            Otherwise, it ventilates extremely well and prevents condensation buildup, sets up in a jiffy, and offers adequate vestibule space. I really love the little media pockets that are found all over the tent - they are great for storing your headlamp, beanie, phone, ect... The new structure design also seems to be more sturdy and durable than the previous iteration. The floor is a thinner fabric(10 D) so I'd recommend bringing a footprint along, which at 6 oz, still keeps your weight below the other options.

            The Way to Go for a 2P UL Tent

            BA Copper Spur HV UL2 (small people)

              Loved it! However I'm 6 ft 2 in and with a 25 inch pad and my wife's 20 it didn't quite fit. We could have made it work but when myself and another man tried it we had no room. One of us had to put an arm on our body. Would be great for smaller men or woman. I returned for the 3 man.
