Big Agnes Blacktail 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season

Add Protect+ Powered by Extend™

Blacktail 2 Tent

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 your 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.

Blacktail 2 Backpacking Tent

The Blacktail two, three, and four-person tents are light enough for the backcountry, and strong enough for 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 series of tents 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.


I'm also wondering if the footprint is included. The Big Agnes video says it is, but it's not listed under the specs...


Does this include the footprint shown in the pics?
