The Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 is a high-performance two-door backpacking tent for people that want more space and comfort than lighter tents like the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 or Tarptent Double Rainbow offer. It wins our Editors' Choice Award because it is the best lightweight and comfortable backpacking tent in our review fleet. It weighs 49 oz. or 3 lb. 1 oz., has two spacious vestibules and has an above average space-to-weight ratio. It does great in harsh weather, keeping its contents dry. The tent features high-quality ultralight fabrics that could be stronger and more durable. It competes closely, and comes out on top, with the NEMO Dagger and REI Half Dome 2 Plus. Our testing determined that it is the most comfortable and easy to use of the three.
