Packed weight: 3 lb. 2 oz. Floor space: 29 sq. ft. Peak height: 3 ft. 4 in. Doors: 2

This two-person tent offers a balance between weight and size while still providing a rich set of features. And for 2020, Big Agnes installed a buckle system for the fly attachment, updated the interior pockets, and redesigned the vestibules to double as awnings. If that all sounds heavy, it isn’t. The Copper Spur remains just over three pounds, thanks to the new, ultralight, double-ripstop nylon in both the body and fly. The vertical walls and large sections of airy mesh made the tent feel larger than it is. While we like that Big Agnes includes an emergency field splint should one of the aluminum poles break, we’re disappoint­ed that the pricey Copper Spur doesn’t come with enough stakes to secure the perimeter of the fly. That’s not a deal breaker, but plan to throw a few extras in your pack.
