Big Agnes Copper Spur UL1 Tent -

Backpacking's all about solitude, so ditch the office, the crowds, and the hangers-on and head up into the mountains with just you, yourself, and the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL1 1-Person 3-Season Tent. It's an ultralight backpacker's dream, weighing in at 2.5 pounds fully packed, and nearly a pound lighter if you opt to bring just the poles, fly and footprint (available here) for a quick-set up option. The Copper Spur is made primarily of polyester mesh to keep things light, airy, and breathable, and the ripstop nylon fly has a double waterproof coating and fully-taped seams to keep rain and condensation at bay. It has a handy vestibule, too, which has plenty of room to shelter your boots and pack.

To keep things lighter than a mint julep, Big Agnes designed the Spur with a DAC Featherlite hub pole system, which is super-easy to set up and reduces weight by eliminating the need for 3 or 4 poles. They did throw in a single crosspiece, though, to give you plenty of headroom to keep claustrophobia out of the picture. In fact, the Spur has more headroom than most similarly-sized tents, thanks to a steep wall design that lets you sit up without having to jam your head into the roof of your tent, which might not sound that special, but is a big deal when you're spending extended amounts of time on the trail. There's a media pocket with a cord port, too, as well as reflective guylines and webbing that make it easy to navigate your campsite by headlamp—and hey, even if you do trip and munch on a mouthful of dirt, at least there won't be anyone around to see.
