Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds thin layer of protection to floor of tent I have always used a footprint. You really do not need one with the way tents are nowadays. Materials are stronger and hold up to the elements much better. However, it never hurts to add one more layer of protection beneath you. Yes, it is another 4.5 oz, but it protects your tent floor from abrasive surfaces and can prolong the life of your tent. Make sure you clean it, along with your tent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition to an outsiding solo tent. I always have a love hate relationship with footprints. It's difficult to justify the extra weight and cost when the Copper Spur UL1 is already a bit pricey. The obvious benefits of keeping moisture and dirt off the bottom of the tent is nice but alone not enough to justify the adding a footprint. It's the the quick pitch feature that makes the footprint worth the added cost and weight. The footprint acts as a nice template for positioning and staking. In wet conditions the quick pitch (footprint+fly) configuration can be erected first and then the tent keeping the tent interior mostly dry. In low light conditions the footprint makes for a nice work surface to assist setup and take-down. Only losses a star because of the additional weight and cost but worth 4 stars for situations where weather conditions require a fully functional 3 season tent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Agnes Copper Spur UL1 Footprint I bought BGCS UL1 Footprint with the BACS UL1 tent. As others have reviewed, the foot print is a "bare bones" choice for tent/ground protection. At $60 it is very $$$$ and the material is VERY VERY LIGHT WEIGHT material. I returned the product because of these facts. I use a small tarp (Walmart-$7.95) with added grommets to protect my tents. In this case, the difference in weight does not add up to adequate tent protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pole and gromits don't match. Big Anugus rain fly and tent gromits are color matched to poles. Footprint is not. Why is that? It's a nice feature when setting up tent in a hurry, dark, or rain.

Will match the 2013 Copper Spur?

Asked by: CK the Hiker
The footprints for the Copper Spur will fit previous tent models. Tent dimensions have not changed.
