Great backpacking tent!!!
I used the new Copper Spur last weekend backpacking Big Bend and I can say that I absolutely love it. I have always enjoyed the Copper Spur since I bought my first one back in 2014 but the enhancements Big Agnes incorporated into the 2020 edition are awesome. It is the best combination of lightweight, interior size, packability, durability and functionality.

The Copper Spur is very easy to set up. In a matter of minutes I completely set it up by myself on the top of Chisos Mountain's South Rim in Big Bend NP. I love that the Copper Spur is fully free standing and the side entry makes for easy access for in and out. The materials are very light weight and string, with a good combination of rip-stop nylon and mesh. The 4 way pole set up is very stable. My night on top of the South Rim of Chisos Mountain in was extremely windy but the Copper Spur stood up perfect in the wind.

A couple new features that are great are the mezzanine storage at the foot side of the tent makes all the area inside the tent usable. Additional the awing style vestibule made more area and easier moving gear in and out of the tent.

Party in a tent form
It's light, simple to set up, and really fun to put the awning up, and have a "front porch" feel to your tent. The awning is also super easy to take down if the weather's getting wild. We love this tent, and most importantly, our dog loves it too. Plenty of room for the three of us!

Best in Class Tent
I love this tent. I owned the previous generation Copper Spur HV UL2 and loved it through many adventures. It always kept me dry and was super easy to setup every night. The one thing that always bugged me about the tent was the way the fly door folded up when not in use. When wet, it was especially problematic as the weight of the wet fly door wanted to come down.

Well, that problem is old news with this new design. I love the extra zipper on the new fly door and I'm thrilled they kept the weight down with the addition. That it can open into a sun shade is a bonus. The new color looks sharp. I've camped in this thing with the kids (in the backyard for now, of course).

I have found that this tent works for two people, but I would suggest sizing up to the HV UL 3 if you use a wide pad and want to fit two. This tent floor, like most ultralight tents, tapers at the foot and is really only useful with two 20" wide pads (though we've endured overlap before without major issues).

If I didn't have this tent, I'd have the Tiger Wall, but I opted for free-standing and a little more space/durability. This is a great tent for the comfort-driven minimalist. How will I use it? Mostly as a solo shelter.

Ideal backpacking tent, quick and easy to set up
I can usually set this tent up in about five minutes. It has kept me dry in severe thunderstorms, has been durable so far. I have not had any zipper problems so far with the tent. I do find that with the rainfly you have to zip a little more slowly to keep the zipper from getting caught on the rainfly material, but no major issues. On clear nights I leave off the rainfly so I can gaze at the night sky. Very roomy if you are solo, but there is room for two if you put your backpack/gear in the vestibule area. After twice emailing Big Agnes using their website question submission with a question about the footprint, and never receiving a response either time, I made a footprint out of Tyvek for a fraction of the cost Big Agnes would have charged for their footprint. I love the tent, recommend it strongly.

beautiful & functional
PROS: I got this to replace the same tent, version 1980, from parents. Light. Sturdy. Rainfly fits well. I lost the small pole that is used to suspend the top over the other poles. I was crushed- my lovely expensive tent, useless. B.A. sent me a new suspension pole for $10. I sold my parent's tent to a young excited dad with two kids. Unclear if f this version will also last 40 years of if I'll have kids to give it to, but both seem plausible.

CONS: It's kinda unbelievable seeing how much we're paying for this tent that they don't inc. a ground tarp? I cannot afford to shell out another $100+ for that.

Would buy this product again!
This tent is very will built made from high grade materials. The handful of experiences I managed to get out and use the product before COVID-19 fallout have been a blast. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!

Solid tent for everything but mountaineering
I usually don't write reviews but this tent deserves one. The Copper Spur UL 2 could be the best do everything tent on the market. We just came out of 8 days in the Sawtooth, 65 miles, 16,000' of elevation. We were trying to balance weight/comfort/durability. This checks all three after camping on rock, snow, mud, and being stuck in it for a day waiting out a storm I wouldn't have taken another tent out there. It fit 2 people and a dog at our feet in bad weather.

Could have gone lighter but the cost goes up and I appreciated the structure through some pretty nasty weather. Could have gone bigger with a 3 person for more room and a permanent spot for the dog but we wouldn't have been able to camp as many places with a larger footprint and the weight goes up.

Only thing I'd change is adding a couple more tie down points for the fly to keep it taught when the tent is tucked into small sleeping spots.

Question on new rain fly compatibility with old tent
I bought a copper spur 2 last year and absolutely love it! But I was wondering if the new rain fly is compatible with last years tent. The awning style vestibule doors look sick!

Great tent for the AT!
Took this tent for my latest 4 day trip on the AT in Virginia. I have hiked over 600 miles of the AT with other big name tents, and this is the best so far. Super easy setup and I love the color coding. When you are tired in camp it makes it easy to get it up fast. I did not use the fly this trip, but it is just as easy to install. Excellent tent!
