As spring tickles those tiny nose hairs still slightly frozen from a cold winter I'm getting in the mood for some serious backpacking and camping. And so are the folks at Big Agnes - well, after they cool down from celebrating a big achievement - the Big Agnes Copper Spur tent pulled off an impressive victory over at Backpacker magazine.
The Big Agnes Copper Spur UL4 tent was awarded a 2011 Backpacker magazine Editors’ Choice Award. This is the top dog award in the outdoor industry, which is given annually to the best products for outstanding innovation in design, materials and performance.
And a well deserved award it is - the Big Agnes Copper Spur tent is a beautiful ultra lightweight backpacking tent perfect for three-seasons of ultralight backpacking featuring double doors and vestibules and weighs in at only 5lbs 9oz! That gives you plenty of space to pack in that extra warm sleeping bag if you can't wait to hit the trails until this summer.
Our primary family tent is similarly colored as the Big Agnes Copper Spur with shades of orange and let me tell you when the morning sun sets that baby aglow it is something to behold - like being in the middle of a glowing canyon at the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Utah.
