Copper Spur 2 Platinum (Fall 2022)
Big A's lightest full-featured, freestanding double-wall tent
The full-featured, crazy-light Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 Platinum is easy to pack, setup, and inhabit. Dual doors and steep, vertical walls make long trips with a smelly partner - or three - bearable, and there’s enough internal space to ensure that windy, rainy afternoons spent playing dominoes will be comfortable. Media pockets located above the sleeping area enable clean earbud cord routing from phones or other devices.
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 huge losses on the venture. The road to the defunct mine serves as an easy, two-track spur off a much larger network of trails just up the hill from the Big Agnes warehouse.
