Product details
Official manufacturer description


The Blacktail tent is light enough for the backpacking, and strong enough for the camping in the front country. A tried and true shelter with excellent value for backpackers who want a super comfortable tent after a long day on the trail. The Blacktail tent offers spacious sleeping areas with easy access through two, side-entry doors and vestibules, making early morning entry and exit with a tent-mate more stealth when nature calls.

A great value tent with spacious sleeping area, 2 side entry doors and vestibules to store gear. At a weight of 5lb. 11oz it is light enough for backpacking for most. It has a 1500mm water proof polyurethane coating. This tent will have two fly vents to increase air flow and reduce condensation.

Super solid option from Big Agnes, the Blacktail 3 gives you a great amount of space and comfort without being overtly heavy or cumbersome. Your packed weight comes out to 5lb. 11oz, and provides a 44 square foot floor area and 44 inch head height. Dual zippers on 2 doors with 2 vestibules make for plenty of convenience, ease of use and gear stashing ability. Two fly vents for better air flow and less condensation, tons of extra pockets.

With a trail weight of 4lbs 8oz, this tent is nice and light and ideal for backpacking, although it's still durable and well made, being from a top of the line tent brand! 2 doors make exit and entry easy, 2 vestibules add extra space for gear and shoe storage. 33 sq ft of interior space puts it on the larger side of 2-person tents. All taped seams for waterproofing, full coverage rain fly included, and plenty of interior pockets for stashing smaller items.
