Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 Backpacking Tent


This product is unavailable


The Copper Spur HV UL2 from Big Agnes is a best-selling ultralight backpacking tent, weighing 1220g on the trail and 1420g packed. This 3-season, 2-person tent has been redesigned with new features using proprietary materials that are lighter and stronger. It boasts hardware that simplifies setup and includes a double wall, 2 doors, and 2 porches. The freestanding structure offers generous living space with its high volume design.

Available colours for the Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 Backpacking Tent are Green and Orange.

To prolong the life of your tent floor, we suggest investing in a Big Agnes footprint. This allows you to pitch a lightweight, Fast Fly shelter, leaving the tent body behind. The Fast Fly configuration requires the footprint, tent fly, poles, and stakes.  


  1. Awning-style vestibules with double-zips provide multiple access options.

  2. 3-D bin ‘mezzanine’ at the foot provides elevated storage, oversized ceiling pocket at the head provides additional storage; media pockets provide cord-routing for electronics.

  3. Reduced condensation with dual low-vent vestibule doors and high fly vent to maximise active and passive airflow.

  4. Smooth-closing, dual-zip doors with easy-grip pulls allow for ease of entry, exit and quick, reach-through access.

  5. Quick Stash door-keeper makes stowing unzipped doors quick and easy in the Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 Backpacking Tent.

  6. Velcro tabs connect fly to pole structure providing perfect pitch and extra stability; pre-cut guy-lines and tensioners attached to fly; reflective guy-lines and webbing on tent corners make it easy to see at night.

  7. Vestibule zips protected with storm flap.

  8. Accessory Fly is interchangeable with the standard fly, convenient for those trips when you need the extra vestibule space - sold separately

  9. Multiple interior loops for attaching gear lofts, accessories and mtnGLO® Tent & Camp Lights.
