  • Excerpt: If low weight is your prime tent priority, put this shelter at the top of your shopping list. It’s barely more than four pounds, but makes no compromises in terms of protection. When 30-mph winds in Colorado’s Park Range blasted the Skyledge with rain, this freestanding dome barely shuddered—and...

A great lightweight tent for someone over 6 feet tall.

14 October 2014
  • Summary: A great lightweight tent for someone over 6 feet tall. It sets up fast, kept me dry through some serious downpours and didn't feel claustrophobic. At 6' 3", I could still sit upright and pull on a T-shirt without a fight. Held up well through a thru-hike of the Colorado Trail.
  • Pros: Longer than most one-person tents, Vertical walls, Good weight for the size, Well constructed
  • Cons: Vestibule was smaller than I'd like, Design of door with bottom being the "hinge" and zipper in a half-moon that had to be opened completely to get in or out. Mosquitoes enjoyed that design.

  • Summary: This is a great tent from Big Agnes. It's light, but well-built and quite roomy for a one-person tent. The color coded rain fly clips are also genius.

  • Summary: A rather nice 3 season UL solo that is very weather resistant, comfortable, roomy and user friendly. But with the light weight comes a price; light weight materials.
  • Pros: Light weight., Weather resistant., Very roomy for a solo., Adequate vestibule space., Can be set in fast fly configuration(with BA footprint.), Ventilation is very good., Quality materials., Good design(user friendly.), Big Agnes stands behind their product.
  • Cons: Durability of material but this is somewhat of a given considering that this is a really lightweight product.

  • Summary: I bought this tent as part of a quest to lighten my pack weight. I looked fairly extensively at the various options available, and this one strikes a good balance between weight, dimensions / interior space, and weather resistance.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Good protection in rain storms
  • Cons: Lightweight zipper not durable, Difficult to enter/exit when rain fly is on

  • Excerpt: I used the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL1 on a 5 day, 40+ mile, backpack trip from Mt. Hood to the Columbia River. It rained continuously the first 2 1/2 days. This little tent kept me completely dry with very little condensation EVEN with elevated humidity levels the entire time.
