Why We Like The Blacktail 3 Tent

When we're spending a few days exploring the places where the deer and the antelope play, we bring the Big Agnes Blacktail 3 Tent along for some extra company. While it sleeps three people, the Blacktail weighs just six pounds fully packed, so it's not like carrying your little sister around in your pack (the Blacktail doesn't complain when it gets hungry, either).

The Blacktail has plenty of features to make your backcountry nights a little more comfortable. The polyester fabric of the fly and floor sports fully sealed seams to keep out rain and sneaky moisture, the mesh walls allow for plenty of air to circulate on warm summer nights, and we really love that the dual doors and matching vestibules help you avoid trampling your tent mates and keep your boots and pack dry.


  • Lightweight 3-person tent for camping along the trail

  • Mesh walls keep bugs out but allow plenty of airflow
  • Two doors and vestibules make access easy

Buyer beware

I've put it through the wringer

I'm a motorcycle traveler and been on the road for 4 years and gone through as many tents, this one the zipper went out in less than 5 months and customers service won't help me! Cannot recommend at all!!!

Blacktail Series

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.

Great tent!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 6"

Took this car camping in Lake Tahoe mid-October. No condensation, and got pretty cold at night. Fit my 5'9 boyfriend and myself, 5'6, very comfortably. We could probably have fit a dog in too, but we used the extra space on the sides for our clothes. Great pockets up top and along the sides. Highly recommend!
