Whether you're backpacking backcountry or camping with the kids, Big Agnes has award-winning tents, sleeping bags and pads just right for you. Wonder why we called our company Big Agnes? The answer you receive depends on who you talk with and the mood we're in.
Honestly, it's either a rocky peak in the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness Area outside Steamboat Springs, a laid back mountain town mama or dependable backcountry gear. We think it represents a little bit of each and everything in between.
We've spent a lot of time in the local backcountry so we feel downright connected to it. We name our products after local history, places, peaks and rivers which is always a fun process. It brings back memories of trips both successful and epic and hopefully inspires you to come explore.
Review of the Big Agnes Copper Spur 3 tentBy: John Chapman on 18 October 2017Its our second Copper Spur 3, its a very lightweight tent so dont expect it to last decades but with heaps of space for 2 or comfortable for 3 its a great tent for long trips of 30 days plus which we do every year. Its fairly stable in high winds if pitched well and the old model has seen out a few storms. At only 1.8kg, its lighter than most 2 person tents so for us for long trips its a great tent. Its not cheap but its worth it to us as it saves 1kg in weight. The new model is better than the old, the door has much better designed opening sideways as you can get in and out without having to fully open it (and then let the bugs in). only disadvantage is it has a large footprint so you need a larger site to pitch it but then we just use it for 2 and you can pick which parts to lie down on to avoid tree roots etc so it works out OK. As for the MtnGlo LED lights, with the first tent we thought it was a gimmick but once you use it its a great feature and if a future tent does nto have we will add it (you can buy LED strings only). Its not quite enough to read by but excellent for cooking, finding things without swinging a torch around and blinding your companion etc. The tent is also easy to find when you have to go out at night as the whole thing glows. Overall, if you need a very light spacious tent to live in then this is it, its not cheap but is well designed.
Big Agnes 3 person tentBy: Tina on 24 September 2017This tent is light weight and provides plenty of room. The steeper sides allow more headroom. It is light and so simple to set up and pack away.
Review Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 3 Person UltralBy: Will on 12 September 2017Great tent, not don any long trips yet but light as a feather and you can put it up solo in a couple of minutes, lighting is great and packs down much smaller than the provided bag if you're tight on space. Very thin base though, needs a good tarp underneath
You can trust this tentBy: David on 16 February 2016I’ve used this tent on five trips in varying conditions: two with soaking rain, one with very high winds, and two were just nice weather. Every time this tent performed superbly. It keeps the rain out. It held up in a roaring forties wind storm on the South Coast Track in Tasmania, when we really thought that the tent might fail in some way. You can trust this tent. The tent is sufficiently roomy for 3 people that one doesn’t feel crammed. With two, there’s acres of room. The spreader pole makes for plenty of volume inside, which means that one doesn’t have the problem of pushing the inner against the damp fly. Some complaints: - Insufficient tent pegs. The tent requires 13 to 15 pegs to pitch with the guy ropes, yet only 8 are supplied. - Groundsheet is very thin and won’t withstand any sharp objects. I use an underlay of Tyvek HomeWrap from Du Pont. - Dust blows into the tent. Camping in a dusty area in very high winds, we got showered with dirt inside the tent. - Difficult to pull the vestibules tight to reduce flapping in higher winds. Overall, highly recommended.
First impressionBy: Donna on 16 February 2014The first hiking trip with Big Agness Uitralight 3 was to The Castle on the south coast.Its a 6hr walk in and a hard rock scramble up the last section.On top there is low thick scurb and the only clearing is on rocks.I set the tent up on a flattish rock and stretched the base out to some of the scurb with rope as couldn't use pegs. The tent is very easy to set up yourself and i also add extra rope to the fly and tied it to low scrubs as well. I got this tent as a 2 person tent. This trip I was alone. There was only enough room for 2 people. Gear can be placed in the vestibules. As I was alone everything was in the tent. At 1.8kg it is a great tent. That night 14 Feb 2014 the wind and rain was unbelievable. Some times I could hear the vestibules snaping in the wind. No wind or rain got into the tent and there was a layer of water under the tent in the morning. Found no damage to the tent. If it can handle that wind I don't think I will have any trouble with the tent Phil ps I used the footprint and a tarp under the tent
