Redesigned with new features inside and out, using proprietary materials that are lighter, stronger, and equipped with hardware that makes set-up even easier. The high volume design provides ample living space in this freestanding structure. Traditional, media, and 3D bin pockets help to organize your gear without cramping your sleep space or capacity to sit up inside. Awning-style vestibules can be customized to expand living space, great for both drizzle and sun protection. Your ultimate UL home away from home.

Classic for a Reason
This is a classic tent and I think has been around for forever for a very good reason! This is my go to backpacking tent. Its lightweight, packs easily and it fits myself and my partner perfectly with our Insulated Q Core SLX pads perfectly.

Look no further for a lightweight backpacking tent
Just spent 4 nights out in the Alpine Lakes region of Washington with my kid- the Cooper Spur was the perfect companion. Wonderfully light, easy to set up and packed down like a dream. I look forward to years of camping adventures with this tent. Thanks Big Agnes!

The finest, most versatile tent for 2!
I had a one 2 person Seedhouse for most of my adult life, well over a decade, and it never failed me. I used it almost every weekend for hikes, mountain biking trips, fishing/ hunting trips, concerts, car camping and a few long haul hikes. It never, ever failed me. Sure, I patched this and sewed that along the way but the only real thing that was difficult about that tent was having guests stay with me. It was perfect for 1 person with gear but was too cramped for 2 plus gear. That tent was so good that when I loaned it to a friend for a long bike camp trip, he swore he couldn't give it back. We're still friends.

Anyway, as I got older, mountain biking trips became moto-camping trips. Then they became moto-camping trips with my special lady friend. Now that we have been weekend warriors together for over 5 years, and my trusty Seedhouse has started a new relationship, I had to pick up a new tent for the first time in a very long time. After all of the good experiences with my Seedhouse, I had to try another BA.

I picked up the Copper Spur, the double wide cabin creek bag and the double wide Q Core SLX along with Q Core Deluxe pillows. I am certain we have never slept outside more comfortably. No whiskey chugging before bed required (we still sip for fun) What is truly amazing is that all of that gear plus a Mica basin camp chair and another ultralight chair all fit in my 80L motorcycle panniers and I still have room for my soft cooler and my partner.

We are lucky to live at the edge of Yosemite and every weekend is an adventure. For the past month, we have been wondering why we waited so long to expand our tent and bed space. The Copper Spur has every feature I loved about my Seedhouse and way more. The materials, construction and features are beyond my expectation. it's even the same color of my 'ol tent. I called my friend the other day to thank him for keeping my Seedhouse so that I had to upgrade. I realize I owe BA as well, so THANK YOU!

Design flaw leads to pooling on rain fly
Tent is super light, has plenty of pockets, a smart door design, and ample vestibule. It poured very hard the first time I used it, and I noticed a pretty big flaw - where the crossbar intersects the corner-to-corner bars, since the crossbar isn't directly under the 'hub', it creates a triangle area that isn't sloped, and collects water. Like... a lot of water. I had to push on it a lot from inside the tent to get the water to roll off, but due to the super-stretchy material and overall design, it would just pool again very quickly. It did not leak, but I was pushing on it a lot to keep water out. Looking at how the seams are made, it almost looks like this was on purpose, which I find hard to believe from a company that makes such high-quality products.

I will purchase with Big Agnes again!!
Very excited to have this bag with the Qcore Deluxe Sleep Mattress. Comfortable and warm at 10500 ft in the Rockies! The pillow pocket is a nice addition.
I highly recommend!

Do it all, without sacrificing anything.
I use this tent for backpacking and some summer alpine climbing. Great weight to volume, and includes all the features #sweepstakes

Very Satisfied
Just back from 2.5 week backpack of the Sierra High Route. The Copper Spur was excellent. While not the lightest 2 person tent on the market, it's shared weight was very manageable and, for the price, you can't beat the weight to durability ratio. I love the two zippers on the vestibule and found I used the flexibility more than I expected. I did not, however, pop-up the vestibule door into awning mode. Too much trouble on a trip like the one I was on. At first glance in the tent body I thought there were a lot of storage pockets but, again, found I used all of them frequently. Some of these features add a little weight but I guess I feel it was worth it. I still managed to keep my base weight below 15 pounds, which isn't bad considering I was hauling a 2.5 pound bear canister too. The tent showed no signs of wear at all despite exposure to granite, sun, wind, rain, and two very smelly backpackers. My only complaint, and this is very minor, is the the T and Loop closures for pulling back the vestibule doors were difficult to use. The loop needs some kind of structure to keep them open. Otherwise, I'm extremely happy with all aspects of this tent. If it performed like this on the Sierra High Route, I can't imagine another 3-season trip that it couldn't handle.

Best tent for backpacking/bikepacking
For a long time we used only MSR tents but now we totaly changed our equipment (tent and sleeping pads) to Big Agnes because wanted more comfort and... it works!

2020 Coppur Spur HV UL2 looks like a perfect tent for us - two people and dog.
Best tent we have ever used.

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!

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.
