Details

Get out there.

When the trail's calling, there's no time to wait; so load up your pack, grab the Big Agnes Blacktail 2 Two-Person Three-Season Tent, and leave civilization behind. Just because you leave the comforts of home for the mountains doesn't mean you'll be roughing it, seeing as the Blacktail's a lightweight, tough, and waterproof shelter that'll have you and your partner livin' the high life.

At just 4.5 pounds, the Blacktail easily lets you enjoy the protection of PU-coated, seam-taped shelter, with two doors for easy access and dual vestibules for plenty of dry gear storage. You only need two lightweight aluminum poles, too, so pitching and packing are a breeze. Media pockets on the inside have cable routing so you can catch a few minutes of alone time when you're partner's getting on your nerves, and the reflective guylines and webbing reduce the likelihood of accidentally tearing your tent down on your nighttime wanderings.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This tent is all that and a bag o tater chips. For the price, it can't be beat. Packs fairly light, quick easy setup, built wonderfully. I've used it several times;



1) On My own: dropped to 30 degrees. With fly on, stayed toasty in the tent. No moisture issues. Great gear pockets that are within an arms reach when laying on your back.



2) With The Gal: I'm 6'4",she's 5'8", fit comfortably. Next to each other, but not touching. All gear was outside in the vestibule gear loft (great that there are 2, + 2 doors.) Stayed bone dry.



** On our last trip we went with another couple who purchased a Eureka! tent from BC. Their rain fly hugged their tent, and didn't come down the whole way. We got a little bit of rain in the middle of the night, and had a chilly dewy morning. There stuff was soaked, ours was completely dry -- Even around the edges. It was difficult not to boast about the purchase I had made. Cannot say enough good stuff about this tent.



Lastly, I highly suggest the footprint. Ensures dry sleeping, fits in the same bag as the tent, on offers the option of setting up just the fly on the rare occasion you may have a bug-less night that's not too cold. Saddle up!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

After scouring reviews online for backpacking tents I settled on the BA Blacktail 2 and have not been disappointed. It's super simple and quick to setup. With 2 doors it's easy to get in and out of without having to climb over your partner. Lots of pockets for headlamps, maps, books and dog collars. Plenty of room with the rainfly on to tuck bags safely under and out of the elements. I have not put it through rain yet, but am optimistic it will meet the challenge.
