An ultra-lightweight backpacking option that boasts a surprising amount of internal space to a sub-2.5 pound shelter, the Big Agnes Copper Spur 2 Platinum tent is built to appeal to true ounce-counting backpackers.
Stretching a full 90" in length, the interior of the tent is 52" wide at the head and tapers to a width of 42" at the feet. With 29 square feet of interior space and a trail weight of only 2 pounds, 5 ounces, the tent offers ample room for 2 or serves as a super spacious shelter for solo hikers. Dual vestibules offer 18 square feet (9 square feet per vestibule) of additional weather-protected external storage space. 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 either the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft, Wall Gear Loft, or Trapezoid Gear Loft (all sold separately).
The tent’s DAC Featherlite NFL aluminum poles are both lightweight and durable. The single hub/pole design works in conjunction with the tent body's 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. The ultra-lightweight floor and rainfly have a 1200mm waterproof polyurethane coating to ensure protection for rain and moisture. All of the seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements. Because of the ultra-lightweight materials, use of the Big Agnes Copper Spur 2 Platinum Footprint (sold separately) is highly advised to bolster the floor of the tent against rocks, roots, and moisture.
If you really want to travel light, leave the tent body at home and use the rainfly alone with the optional footprint (sold separately) for a tarp-style set-up that weighs a mere 1 pound, 8 ounces.
