Big Agnes Blacktail Hotel 2

Big Agnes Blacktail Hotel 2


The Blacktail series remains as one of our longest-running tent series - a tried and true shelter with excellent value for backpackers who want a super comfortable tent to bring on the trail. The Blacktail Hotel features a massive, side-entry vestibule attached to the fly for bikes, climbing gear, or your best furry friend. Double doors, a simplified symmetrical pole structure, and additional dry storage make backcountry trips with a smelly partner−or three−more comfortable than you may have thought possible.
