The Blacktail Hotel builds on the success of Big Agnes' Copper Hotel. With a large vestibule that doubles the sheltered space this is a sociable tent. This is a bit heavier than Copper Hotel but it is much more hardwearing and offers fantastic value for money.

Big Agnes says:

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.

Big Agnes's 2020 Blacktail Hotel 2 Tent uses the same classic pole design that is strong enough to stand up to the weather while providing a good space inside. The materials used are heavier than Big Agnes normally use but this results in a stronger, more hardwearing and less expensive shelter. This Hotel gets its name thanks to the huge vestibule on one side which essentially doubles the size of the footprint. The space under this area is huge and although the inner tent does not cover it the shelter it provides is a lot better for socialising when the weather is poor.

The inner tent is a good mix of fabric and mesh so that there's protection from wind and rain, and it also has good ventilation making the tent suitable for a range of conditions. The inner is a good size for three people and there's still enough room for a few bits of kit in there too. There are some great storage pockets that help organise kit and make this tent practical and enjoyable to use. With two entrances, two porches and plenty of internal storage the Blacktail series are well thought out tents that come in at a decent price - Big Agnes has achieved this by taking one step back from the ultra-light, ultra-expensive fabrics used in other designs.

Help and advice:
  • Light enough for the backcountry, and strong enough for the front country--the Blacktail Hotel gives you, your gear, or your dog a little more space
  • Fly features one extended, pole-supported, side-entry vestibule, and one quick-access vestibule
  • Symmetrical pole structure with pre-bent poles for increased head space
  • Dual-zipper door allows for easy entry. Use only one zipper for quick reach-through access
  • Two fly vents for increased air flow and reduced condensation
  • Low Vent feature on the vestibule doors for more air flow while still providing vestibule coverage
  • Media pockets enable clean earbud-cord routing from phones or other devices
  • Quick Stash door keeper on tent body door makes stowing unzipped door quick and easy
  • Reflective guy lines and webbing on tent corners
  • Multiple interior loops for attaching gear lofts, accessories and mtnGLO® Tent & Camp Lights
  • To extend the life of your tent floor we recommend using a Big Agnes footprint - sold separately
