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 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 Making noobness easier My wife and I just bought a house and are just starting to get into backpacking/camping. So far we have only set the tent up in the back yard but it was very easy to accomplish and despite our noobness we got it up within a few minutes, haven't gotten to use it yet but so far so good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I measured mine as 82" long not 90" Just got my Copper SPur and I noticed that the Nemo sleeping pads leave about 5" of floor space. The tent seems to be much shorter than advertised. Other than that I like it.

Will REI stock the olive green color and if so will there be a difference in price?

Asked by: Barebackpacking
Hmmm.  May need a tent before then but I will keep an eye out for it.

Does the old version footprint fit this new version tent? Is there any difference between the old/new footprint?

Asked by: PWCW
The old Copper Spur footprint will not fit this tent. The floor shape has changed.

This is listed as free-standing, Are stakes needed? For water/wind proofness? For forming the vestibules?

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.

Why did one review state the dimentions were not as advertised?

Asked by: Aaron1
We have double checked the tent measurements and confirmed the tent is 90" long. Unfortunately, we cannot speak to why one reviewer found their tent to be shorter than 90", but it may have been how the tent was set up that could have led to inaccurate measurements. If the tent is not fully set up and staked out, it may have appeared shorter than 90".
