The Big Agnes Blacktail LE Tent (ad) is a new release, two person tent from a trusted brand in Big Agnes. This tent is actually a limited edition release, so if you’re interested in having a special tent from a a top brand, you should jump on this now.
The tent and rain fly are made of polyester, with 1500 mm waterproof polyurethane coating. The windows and door are mesh. The seams are taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape. There are four interior pockets, along with media pockets and loops for hanging stuff. The tent is 29 square feet, including two vestibule areas of an additional 18 square feet, which puts this tent on the large side for a two person tent. There is plenty of elbow room. The tent has the basic three pole setup and comes with ten aluminum stakes, although the tent is freestanding. The tent is 7.5 feet by 4.5 feet, with a height of 3.5 feet. This tent weighs 4 pounds, 9 ounces. When packed in it’s bag, it measures 20 inches by 5 inches. This tent is meant for backpacking, although perhaps is a little heavy for that category.
Why It’s Awesome:
This is just a great tent for a great price. It’s lightweight, weatherproof, works for three seasons, comes with aluminum stakes, has large storage pockets and two vestibule areas, and basically has every bonus feature you could want. I like that it is on the light side (well, under 5 lbs) and packs tightly. I am especially excited about it as it is a limited release from a major brand.
What Could Be Better:
The tent height seems is low at 3.5 feet, but that is the trade-off for having it be extremely lightweight and still having the bonus features.
The Big Agnes Blacktail Le Tent (ad) is an excellent tent that I would buy in a second if I was in the market for a tent. This tent will sell out fast and is a limited edition, so it is possible this is your only chance to buy it.
You can grab this tent now, for a great price, on Amazon (ad).
