Summary: Love this tent. Light weight: 3lbs 12oz shaved about 3lbs off my pack weight. Easy set up: First time was in the dark with 30 MPH gusts. Warm & dry: After a night with blasting snow and rain we awoke completly dry, no condensation, what a treat! I'm 6'4" & 200lbs so, like the REI Half Dome , I wish they made a Copper Spur UL2 Plus. My feet wouldn't mind another few oz's for some toe room.

Summary: After test-driving the BA Fly Creek UL2, and not being satisfied that it was sufficiently free-standing, I tried the Copper Spur UL2 and was favorably impressed. My first use was on a 4-day traverse in the Olympics, which contrary to the stereotype, did not allow me to test in in wet or otherwise nasty weather. Flies and mosquitoes were the most trouble.

Summary: Unbelievably I was setting this tent up in the store and the main pole SNAPPED! No undue pressure - wasn't forcing it or anything..the MAIN tent skeleton, just snapped. Had to be a defect, but at $400 I am so glad it happened in the store and not 3 days from anywhere. Buyer Beware! I had researched this tent and had my heart set on it...very light, but obviously at a sacrifice on toughness.

Summary: Great tent. A little pricey. I just used this tent on a solo journey in Point Reyes. It was windy the first night and I didn't have it completely guyed out. The wind made the tent lean and rock back and forth. The second night I had it all guyed out and it didn't rock so much in the wind. I'll primarily be using this tent solo as I like to keep my gear in the tent with me. The Copper Spur is quite spacious with plenty of room to sit up and stretch.
