Big Agnes Copper Spur 2-Person Backpacking Tent Review

I gave this crazy-light, 2-person backpacking tent hell this spring and summer. Actually, my 3-year-old did. And it still sets up like new with no major wounds in a flash. Its inaugural outing included a good toddler thrashing from my son after he woke up to the warm Arizona sunshine with s’more still stuck to his face. He tested the strength of the poles, walls, and zippers again car camping at Spirit Lake this summer, and other than a missing tent stake and a faint smell of marshmallow, this spacious, strong, and well-ventilated tent held its own and continues to provide reliable, comfortable, weather-and-child-proof shelter that sets up in minutes. At 2lbs, 12oz, my son and I are itching to get it out for a night or two in the Selkirk Mountain backcountry before the snow flies. Check for a sale price on this tent at Spokane’s Mountain Gear. MSRP: $449.95. //
