Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 Tent
The Big Agnes Cooper Spur UL2 is the #1 pick of this list for many reasons. For starters, it has a great space to weight ratio, giving you 29 square feet with a packed weight of just 3 pounds and 7 ounces (which can be reduced to as low as 3 pounds and 1 ounces depending on which tent components you choose to carry). The tent is also extremely easy to pitch, freestanding, and has two vestibules for gear storage or cooking should the weather drive you inside your tent. Two tent doors make it easier for you to get in and out of the tent with multiple campers, while mesh pockets and a separately sold wall gear loft help maximize your interior space. All in all, this tent offers an ideal home away from home in an exceptionally small package. This series also offers a three person tent which may better serve the needs of two backpackers as the two person version would be a snug fit.
