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: 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!

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!

Excerpt: 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.
