A feature-rich solo offering, the Copper Spur UL 1 boasts an impressive interior space-to-weight ratio. The balance of weight and performance is perfect for ounce-counting backpackers who don't want to skimp entirely on creature comforts.
Stretching a full 90" in length, the interior of the Copper Spur UL 1 is 42" wide at the head and tapers to a width of 30" at the feet. With 22 square feet of interior space and a trail weight of only 2 pounds, 8 ounces, the Copper Spur UL 1 offers ample room for solo hikers. A large front vestibule offers 10 square feet of additional weather-protected external storage space. A zip-through passage on the interior of the tent body grants access to a small rear storage vestibule. An interior mesh pocket provides a place to stash gear and clothes while integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Wall Gear Loft (sold separately).
The Copper Spur UL 1's DAC Featherlite NSL aluminum poles are both lightweight and durable. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's integrated DAC Twist Clips to make setting up the Copper Spur UL 1 fast, easy and intuitive. An additional short section of pole runs across the roof of the tent and connects easily via an innovative H Clip attachment, pulling the tent body taut, increasing the verticality of the interior walls and helping to maximize the spaciousness of the two vestibules. An eco-friendly anodizing process is used by DAC to treat the poles without the toxic chemicals traditionally used on aluminum tent poles.
Ample mesh on the tent body and a large D-shaped door encourages cross ventilation and provides circulation to fight condensation build-up. Coated with waterproof polyurethane, the rip-stop nylon floor and rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the Copper Spur UL 1's seams are tape-sealed to further protect the tent from the elements.
Reflecting an overall commitment to maintaining as light a packed weight as possible, nine super-light aluminum J stakes are included to further secure the freestanding Copper Spur UL 1. If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional Copper Spur UL 1 Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 1 pound,15 ounces.
