the Copper SPur HV UL series is freestanding with excellent headroom, near vertical walls and two decent sized porches creating a really good amount of usable space. This mtnGLO version also has the integrated lighting that is unique to Big Agnes tents.
Big Agnes says:
Three season, free standing, ultralight tents.
These full-featured, ultralight backpacking shelters are super easy to pack, setup, and inhabit. Dual doors make entry and exit convenient for all, and our award-winning mtnGLO® Tent Light Technology makes overnights with friends and four-legged partners better than ever. With steep, vertical walls there's enough internal space to ensure that windy, rainy afternoons spent playing Hearts won't leave you feeling claustrophobic.
We really like Big Agnes's Copper Spur series of tents because they are not much heavier than the Fly Creek but they are truly freestanding and you get a good head height which is maintained over a wide area due to the cross pole arrangement. This 4-way high volume hub pole design increases it's strength by 25% and it's usable interior volume by 20% compared to previous versions of the Copper Spur.
The walls are nearly vertical and there is a good mix of fabric and mesh on the inner tent - this give a good compromise between privacy, warmth and wind resistance - making it suitable for a wide range of conditions.
The Copper Spur HV UL 2 has two doors and two decent sized porches for a tent in this category with internal mesh pockets for bits and bobs. External storm guying points at the business end give reassurance for windy conditions.
In addition to all of this, the mtnGLO version has the integrated mtnGLO lighting system which uses durable LED lights to illuminate the interior of the tent. The lights are integrated into the fabric seams and are durable enough to withstand the nature of regular packing, folding and pitching. A simple push button controls the lighting with three settings.
