What's in a name
The Copper King Mine and Milling Company, established in 1915, ended its reign on a sour note. Stockholders realized too late that the sketchy operation was nothing more than a promotional scam and many took incredible losses. The road to the mine serves as an easy two track spur oﬀ a much larger network of trails just up the hill from our warehouse.

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.
Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 1 reviewBy: mich on 18 March 2018I've had this tent for a year now and I love it. After hiking with a tunnel tent for the last 20 years, I really enjoy how spacious it feels inside as well as the side entrance. On one trip, I had a very cold night (below zero) up near Kosciuszko. A very chilly wind whipped up in the night and if I was sleeping out a few more nights in that weather, I would have appreciated a more solid tent wall. No experience with it in the rain as yet. It definitely needs something underneath as the fabric is so lightweight - I use a bit of old tarp that I cut to size.
My review of Big Agnes Copper Spur UL HV1By: Wendy Nelson on 23 July 2017Quick setup. Fabric appears fragile but time will tell. A shame that they shaved 2" off the width at the top. However, the HV makes it appear much roomier. The weight of this tent makes it a brilliant choice for me, 65yrs old, to carry on multi day hikes
BIG AGNES COPPER SPUR ULTRALIGHT HV 1 PERSON TENT-By: Monttles on 9 June 2017Purchased for the ultra low weight & ability to be freestanding, I used my Big Agnes for 2.5 weeks in the Kimberly & loved it. As a born again pack carry hiker, I was amazed to find how easy & fast it was to set up & pack up. It's so roomy inside it cured my slight tent claustrophobia- easy to get changed in, easy to get in & out of & easy to get organised with the mesh pockets & ceiling loops. Loved the full mesh ceiling for great star gazing & appreciated the slightly higher solid sides at the head end for wind protection when the breeze picked up during the night. Can't comment on rain- had only small drizzle- if was raining heaps I think the small size of porch could be irritating for rain protected access to gear. We camped about half rock & half sand & I had no issues with durability (I also bought the footprint & used every night)- but for the high price, hoping can update this review every now & again & change durability (and value) rating to 5 star.
Copper Spur 1By: Dion on 10 April 2017First run this weekend. Very comfortable tent. Rained all night and the tent handled every minute of it. Thank
My Review of the Big Agnes Copper Spur UltralightBy: Paul Ambry on 5 November 2016This tent is brilliant for several reasons: it's super light, really compact, extremely sturdy (even in gale force winds), and exquisitely simple to set up. The design of the spa arrangement is a delight to behold - so clever, strong and astonishingly light. When I first unpacked it I thought it would fold or rip in no time as the whole setup looked so flimsy. But no, quite the opposite. It's a cracker of a tent. I would recommend the use of a tarp on hostile ground though (such as sharp rocks or splintered brush or prickles) as the floor of the tent is somewhat 'gossamer'.
