Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light tent for two My wife and I purchased this tent prior to a three week backpacking trip in the High Sierras. We were interested in this tent initially because of it's light weight. Not only did it save us three pounds in pack weight, the tent endured driving rain, sleet, hail and a night of very strong winds at Mt. Whitney trail camp. THe ten is large enough for two people plus packs and other gear. We don't like leaving our packs outside of the tent at night. Although three people inside would be a stretch, it is a great roomy and light tent for two people backpacking. We couldn't be more satisfied with this tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly light and fits 3 adults Planned 10-day backpacking trip in mountains, so I first bought the "REI Co-op Half Dome 2 Plus Tent", but then decided to spend 2.5 times more and get this one - it is amazingly light - lighter than Co-op 2P, yet it can fit three adults. I was glad to save some weight with my 57 lb backpack, and, besides, an extra person joined us so that extra space was handy. Had three guys in it , no problem (165, 175 and 225 lb); having two entrances was great. Easy to setup, pack. Handled rain well. Also got footprint for it, it is so light and compact that easily fits into tent's bag along with the tent. The tent's fabric is very thin, but strong - if it gets into zipper, it can be easily pulled out with no damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Standing up to the test of time My wife and I splurged on the BA Copper Spur 3 person tent about 6 years ago. We went with the 3 person to give more space to me (I'm 6'4) and our pups (two Australian Shepherds) and I cannot be happier that we did. There is plenty of room inside for us all. We are not "ultralight" backpackers but we love the fact that the Copper Spur doesn't break our back. We typically go on 2-3 short trips a year and we take this tent 100% of the time. When we bought it, we knew that the material was "fragile" and we needed to take good care of it but this tent has truly stood the test of time. We did splurge for the footprint and I think that helps keep the floor of the tent in good shape. I am not sure when we will need to but a new tent, but when we do we will not hesitate to spoil ourselves with another Copper Spur!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We absolutely love it! My wife and I purchased this tent a few months ago. Since then we used it on a 5 day backpacking tent in the Great Smokies as well as a 2 night trip here in Florida. The tent is amazing. In our opinion it's the perfect size for 2 people. You'll have no problem fitting gear and all inside the tent. Vestibules are also large enough to hold gear if you don't like having gear in tent. Sets up very easy, tears down even easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent but pricey Have been using this tent for about a year with heavy use. I have taken it all over North America backpacking and it is a great 3-season tent. The UL3 fits 2 people comfortably but would be nearly impossible with 3 adults. The tent pops up and folds very quickly, it is waterproof and well constructed. Highly recommend getting the proper footprint to go along. It is among the pricer tents on the market, but well worth it if you are looking for a tent to withstand heavy use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and light Not a cheap price tag, but worth the price. This is a 3 person tent, but I wanted something 2 people could sleep in with their packs in the tent. Lots of room and easy to set up. Fits two adults and packs with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tent This well-designed tent sets up in minutes, first time out of the bag, without cursing or swearing :-). Light weight, ample room, good ventilation. I bought mine during the REI members' sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Tent. Ever! Have had this for 5 years and it's as strong today as it was the first day. It has trekked multiple miles through northern Arizona, Yosemite, Colorado, North Carolina, Virginia, and beyond. Perfect size for my wife and I + one small (11lb) dog. Weight is just right, durability outstanding, vestibules size great, venting always works, and set up time is minimal (10 min).

Questions & Answers

Three poles formed a triangle at the top where a pool of water 1" deep collected. Doing something wrong? Should fly pole be below other two?

Asked by: jwlamarre
​The cross pole is designed to lay on top of the main pole section; we recommend that your rainfly is pitched completely out and taunt so that the rain will run off the fly instead of collect at the top.

The tent comes with 8 stakes. Seems you need 4 for the footprint, 4 for the corners, 4 for the sides. Then there are guylines about half-way up the sides at the corners. Is it necessary to stake those out? Seems one needs 8 more stakes!

Asked by: Mary
​The footprint does not need its own stakes since the footprint connects to the tent corners. Although often recommended, it is not necessary to use all the guy out points on the tent.

What is the denier equivalent of the tent floor? It would be useful information in helping gauge how thin this tent's floor is comparatively. I'd be using this tent with my dog so knowing durability (footprint aside) is important to me.

Asked by: aweekfromnow
​The floor, fly and canopy are all made from a 20-denier ripstop nylon.
