Copper Spur HV UL3 Tent

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 3-Person 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.

  • Full-featured backpacking tent with minimal weight
  • All mesh body is ultralight and breathable
  • PU-coated fly and floor protect against rain and damp ground
  • Fast Fly option shaves weight for ultralight trips
  • DAC Featherlite NFL pole system is light and sturdy
  • Mesh interior pockets feature headphone cord routing
  • Reflective guylines and webbing aid visibility
  • Big Agnes finds inspiration in its Rocky Mountain surroundings
  • Item #BAGZ29B

Withstood rain and wind effortlessly

Familiarity:
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.

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!

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!
