  • 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.
