Big Agnes Copper Spur UL 2-Person Tent


See available backpacking tents


The Copper Spur Ultralight is a fully featured and crazy-light space for 2 fast-moving travellers. There's enough interior space to while away time in the tent in wet weather and new media pockets for routing cords without causing a tangle. Room at the head area accommodates big-shouldered occupants, and it tapers towards the foot to save weight. Hubbed poles and canopy clips are super-fast to set up.

  • Ultralight nylon and polyester mesh canopy are a good balance of weather protection and ventilation
  • Seams are taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (No PVC or VOCs)
  • High peaked vents in the fly let air in and keep wetness out
  • Body has arc-shaped (like a rainbow) doors make the space more livable for 2 people
  • Guyline points in the corners let you anchor it securely in windy conditions
  • Hub design is fast to set up. H-clip and twist-clips attach tent body to poles
  • Featherlight DAC poles have pressfit connectors and a high strength-to-weight ratio
  • 3 interior mesh pockets for organizing gear
  • 2 mesh media pockets above the sleeping area with cord loops to route ear buds
  • Vestibules provide gear storage area and a weather-proof area to put your boots on
  • Storm flaps on the vestibules keep drips out of the tent
  • Includes 8 superlight aluminum J stakes
  • Optional footprint available for floor protection or an ultralight configuration
