Combine the impressive space-to-weight ratio of the best-selling Copper Spur Series with an enormous integrated vestibule and you get the Big Agnes Copper Hotel HV UL 3, a lightweight 3-person tent with a built-in gear garage!

Stretching a full 90" in length, the interior of the tent is 70" wide at the head and tapers to a width of 62" at the feet. With 41 square feet of interior space and a trail weight of only 4 pounds, 3 ounces, the tent offers ample room for 3 or serves as a super spacious shelter for two. One vestibule provides 9 square feet of weather-protected storage space and the second vestibule offers 27 sprawling square feet of protection. Interior mesh pockets provide places to stash gear and clothes while media pockets located above the sleeping area enable headphone/ear bud cord routing from phones or other devices. Integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for Big Agnes Large Wall, Large Trapezoid, or Triangle Gear Lofts (all sold separately).

The tent’s DAC Featherlite NFL aluminum pole system is lightweight and durable. The single hub/pole design over the main body works in conjunction with integrated clips to make setting up the tent fast, easy, and intuitive. An additional short section of pole runs across the roof of the tent and connects easily via an innovative attachment that pulls the tent body taut, increasing the verticality of the interior walls and helping to maximize the spaciousness of the vestibules. An eco-friendly anodizing process is used by DAC to treat the poles without the toxic chemicals traditionally used on aluminum tent poles. Reflecting an overall commitment to maintaining as light a packed weight as possible, superlight aluminum J stakes are included to further secure the freestanding tent.

Ample mesh on the tent body and the large D-shaped doors encourages cross ventilation and provides circulation to fight condensation build-up. Coated with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane, the rip-stop nylon floor and rainfly are lightweight and durable. All of the tent's seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements.

If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional protective Copper Spur HV UL 3 Footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up.
