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.
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'.
By: hipno515 on 11 July 2016Perfect one person hiking tent! Featherweight, well designed protection from overnight light rain. A ground sheet is recommended.
BA Copper Spur UL1By: Vinnie on 20 February 2016I bought this tent for a 7 day hike and got to put it through it's paces on that trip. Pros: It's very easy and quick to put up, and I love the quality and design of the DAC pole system. The freestanding nature of it allows you to easily move it to get that perfect spot. The material is very light and thin, so I'm not sure how durable it'll be in the long run, but it dries extremely quickly and is by far the lightest tent I've ever carried. Inside, the lateral poles holding out the sides at the top of the tent give you a lot of usable headroom when you're sitting in it. The design handles strong wind great as well, with nothing getting through the fly to chill you either. Cons: My only beef is with the door design. The rainbow shape means the "hinge" of the door is horizontal along the base of the tent, which makes it more cumbersome to use than a regular "D" shaped door. It's a very expensive tent, but with everything, you get what you pay for. No regrets at all here.
By: Annette Miller on 26 December 2015Have only camped in it one night so far in good conditions, but pleased with the space, headroom, ease of pitching, etc. have since also bought the Footprint for weight saving and protecting floor. Hard to beat for the weight I think!
