Ultralight shelter for life on the trail.
When you're on the trail for days or weeks at a time, you need a tent that is easy to carry across long distances and won't make you go stir crazy from claustrophobia. Big Agnes has you covered with its ultralight and spacious Copper Spur HV UL3 Tent.
Dual doors mean you won't be climbing over your trail partner in the middle of the night, and the steep walls increase space without adding bulk, so afternoons spent playing cards or reading while waiting out a storm will be comfortable, even if an extra hiker decides to join you. The ultralight mesh body makes it extremely breathable, so you don't have to smell your trekking partner after day nine without a shower, and it lets you stare up at the stars when there's no threat of rain.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Great tent compared to some of the other UL tents out there. We just took it out on a two week trip to Lake Superior Provincial Park in some cold, windy and rainy conditions. The tarp does not stick to the inner tent, even in dewy conditions. Easy set up with color coordinated attachments. Inside area of tent and contents can be removed in rainy conditions. Its very lightweight and spacious in height and floor space for two adults. The two vestibules and inner pockets are great for storage and keeping track of small items. Its lightweight fabric and design is not insulating, though the tarp does tie down within centimeters of the ground to keep the wind out.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
This was a gift to my brother and sister-in-law. They say that it is very spacious, well-made, and lightweight. They are looking into more tents like this one to take out on their excursions!

I have really enjoyed using this tent over the past 2 weeks. It is lightweight, yet has done great through rainstorm, very cold weather, and best of all packs very light. So far I have only used it for my wife and I, even though it is a 3 man tent. I have liked having the extra room. However, I would caution anyone wanting to use this as a true 3 man tent. It has a tapered floor design so that it would be impossible for three adults to sleep all the same direction, especially if one has a large pad as I do. The instructions provided show alt head/foot pattern, but as someone who spends a lot of time in wildnerness, Ican never find that perfect flat spot, which means 2 people will be sleeping reasonably comfortably with slight downhill, and the odd person going the opposite direction is probably going to be head down hill all night. I cannot sleep like that, and I don't think most people like that. This past weekend was a perfect example. We spent 3 nights in Stoddard Creek Wilderness area and the flattest spot we could find was still on a slope. I think that is the only downside I could find. The material seems tough, yet lightweight. It is easy to set up. It packs very nicely in included pack bags without struggle. It has many convenient pockets inside. They put doors on both sides so it is easy to get out without disturbing a partner. The bottom is made out of a very thin waterproof material, and I was worried it wouldn't last so I bought the footprint while they were on a great sale. I don't regret that and think it might be a mistake to buy without it. I considered getting the included lights, but they were sold it. It is a cool idea. I would definitely buy this again.
BA Copper Spur HV UL3
Love it. Bought the 2 man it was too small. The 3 man is perfect for 2 people. We could fit 3 if we used 20 inch pads and were small.

Convenience & Capacity
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have the previous model Copper Spur UL 3 - it has similar wideness 178 cm from both ends - for three adult middle size men it's really tight - of course you can sleep there but there is no one free centimeter. Big Agnes concept tp sleep as head-to-leg is not working in mountains - try to find a flat and absolutely horizontal surface for the tent - this is almost impossible, and it means somebody's head will be lower the legs. In this new model they made the special shape, which gives even less space.
Also it's interesting to compare the zippers in field - in new model all of them look much better.
But generally - BA Copper Sput amazing tent, super light, tested in heavy rains and winds of Siberia
