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...

Summary: Bought this tent to cut down on weight for camping trips to the Grand Canyon. Saved me over 5 pounds vs. old tent and much to my surprise the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 proved to be a superior tent.
Pros: Lightweight, Easy up, easy down, Good in wind and rain
Cons: Tent stuff bag easily tears, Vent system confusing

Summary: Big room in a small package! Finally, a lightweight tent that is redhead proof, bomb proof, and can withstand the unpredictable weather and wind of the Northwest. Color coded pole tips and rain fly clips make setting up a snap. Two doors and vestibules make for quick in's and outs.
Pros: Light weight, Bomb proof
Cons: No loft, but has 2 mesh pockets in front corners
Excerpt: This dome isn’t the lightest in its class—the freestanding Burn Ridge weighs four pounds more than ultralight options—but it costs half as much, making this two-door, four-person shelter a fantastic buy for families seeking an affordable backcountry shelter.

Excerpt: 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...

Excerpt: 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!
