When you're hiking with one or two people, you might as well share some essentials and cozy into one tent to save space and weight. At just 3lbs, 12oz, you can jam it into one person's pack while someone else carries the food.

Great VestiblePros: very roomy for 2, light, vestibule is enormous.
Cons: harder to get in and out of compared to Big Agnes Copper Spur, could use a few more interior pockets.
Used on a 3 night backpacking trip to Rocky Mountain NP. Used it previously on a 1 night trip, didn't notice the difficulty getting out until the 3 night trip. The rain fly vent is opened by zipping down the top of the zipper and propping the gap open, this lowers how far you can unzip and seems to reduce your headroom getting out. My wife 5'4" noticed this right away, I'm 6'1" and it is harder to get out off than my Big Agnes Copper spur.
But if you've got a gob of gear, the vestibule may out weight the negatives.

Light at a feather!From taking it out of the package there was little weight to the tent. Setup was easy as all the poles ate connected as one unit. We added the ground sheet to protect the floor, but may not take the ground sheet when going ultra-light. Size would be more suitible for two 6ft guys w some room for gear. Awesome tent!

Awesome Tent!We needed a new tent for our car camping and backcountry trips, and after a ton of research for the perfect tent, we decided on the Nemo Dagger 3P tent. It is the perfect size for my wife and I, and our two german shepherds. We really liked the dual-sided vestibule and the headroom in the tent! We easily stored our bags in the vestibules, which they stayed dry all night. We loved the storage pockets on opposite corners too. Great to store headlamps, phone, etc. The first time we used the tent, got down to about 50 degree. We stayed warm, however excited to dry it out during the Winter. Overall, extremely light weight, breathable, well made, and good quality material. Also, bought the pawprint and footprint to go with it, highly recommend.

Love this tent; really sweet.After searching for a lightweight, three person tent for me and my wife, based on the specs I narrowed it down to the Nemo and the Copper Spur. On paper, they are very similar: similar pole configuration (hubs with cross bar); almost identical height and square feet, material (I think), and close in weight - the Spur a little lighter. And, unfortunately, price. But after setting them up in the store, I went with the Nemo and I am very happy I did. Either tent would be good, but little details led me to the Nemo. After a backpacking trip, I have absolutely no buyer's remorse. Comparing the Nemo and Spur I found:
. Fly fit is taut. I found some sagging with the Spur, but not the Nemo. This in the store without tying it out. Same experience in field. Of course, in the store, I didn't stake the corners for either tent.
. Vestibule. The double stake outs for the each of the vestibule doors on the Nemo make the vestibule area more usable than the single stake outs with the Spur.
. Zippers. I read a review about the Spur zippers not being as smooth as they could be. The Nemo's slide like butter, And on the Nemo, there was no binding of the vestibule zipper flap to the zipper. The way that flap is constructed, I don't expect that there will be a problem; it has a bit of extra stiffness not found on the Spur. I hate fumbling around trying to get the zipper unstuck.
. Ventilation. Can't say how the system works on the Spur, but the clever system in the Nemo using the vestibule zipper flap seems to work well.
. Connection of poles to tent corners. The Nemo uses a ball-socket-joint (don't know the official name) that holds the tent pole securely without coming out as you try to set up each corner. This is especially helpful when you try to set up the tent by yourself. The Spur uses grommets.
. Color. I am tired of bright colored tents. The Nemo is a pleasant green.
. Storage pockets. Spur had it on this one. The Nemo could use more.

New Gear! Sweet!Haven't had a chance to use the tent yet, but got a chance to set it up. Setup was a breeze. If you've ever put up a tent before it will take you about 2 minutes. Tent is super light which is one of the main reasons I bought it. Spacious interior. I plan to use it as a 2 person tent, so I can sprawl out after a long hike. I wish it had more interior pockets. Nemo does make their gear loft, but I don't want to carry the extra weight. Construction seems solid, but only time will tell.

Dagger is Superior to Copper SpurHad the pleasure of using both the Nemo Dagger and Big Agnes Copper Spur within a five day period. Here in Utah the Spur is the most popular seller and one reason why I purchased it. I started out with the Spur my first trip with this tent. The only two advantages I see that favor of the Spur is it is 5 ounces lighter and has better interior tent storage pockets. Not much of an advantage considering what the Dagger has to offer in terms of really relevant and what I would consider more essential design features. The Dagger has a bath tub floor the Spur does not. I camped in both tents during torrential downpour rains and without a bath tub floor water was an issue. The zippers were superior on the Dagger never got caught on the fly once whereas it was constant problem on the Spur. The fly on the Dagger is superior both in storage functionality (the vestibule gets staked out differently which earns its advantage) and can be kept taut whereas the Spur's fly is more limp and hence more difficult to dry out in the morning after a storm. The mesh on the Spur is very delicate and the first trip out I needed to patch a small hole due to swatting at bee that flew into the tent. I suspect overall durability is on the side of the Dagger. To be fair that is only a guess since I have used each only once. Also thought the foot print was more solid and durable than the Spur. For a three season tent I am of the opinion that the Nemo Dagger for the money is at the top of its class. Please do not get seduced as I was by the idea that the Spur is somehow better because it is 5 ounces lighter.

Perfect for Outdoor Adventures!My husband and I use this trip for weekend adventures or short backpacking trips. It is super easy to set up, spacious, and airy. I love the ventilation and mesh top, it's perfect for nighttime views. The tent has great ventilation,

Excellent design, quality materialsI tested out and compared this tent with Big Agnes Seedhouse and Fly Creek. The design, ease of use and material quality on the Nemo were found to be superior. The tent is large and roomy and the vestibule design keeps gear dry.
