About the Big Agnes Blacktail 3 Hotel

One of the longest-serving Big Agnes tents, the Blacktail Hotel 3 delivers a tried and tested design with ample living space at a price that's great for first-timers looking for a great value shelter that doesn't compromise on quality.

This spacious dome tent is built for 3-season camping, trekking, and bike-packing. It features symmetrical pole architecture with pre-bent poles to create increased headroom and a spacious interior.

The freestanding design is easy to pitch with room enough for three people or ample space for two looking for added comfort. The Blacktail features two doors for hassle-free access with a huge 28ft² front vestibule for dry storage and sheltered meal prep. A smaller 9ft² rear vestibule gives you added gear storage and quick access to smaller essentials.

The Blacktail Hotel pitches inner tent first with a versatile design that lets the canopy stand alone for use in good weather - a great way to stargaze beneath the night sky. By using the additional footprint (sold separately) you can pitch the fly without the inner tent for a minimalist 'Fast Fly' camping experience where conditions allow - great for warm weather bike-packing trips.

The 3-season design excels in warmer weather with a breathable polyester mesh inner canopy and two fly vents for increased airflow and moisture management. All seams are taped with waterproof polyurethane tape while both flysheet and floor feature a polyester fabric with 1500mm waterproof PU coating to protect against rain.

A number of inner pockets and hang tabs help organise belongings with two media pockets for clean earbud-cord routing for phones or other devices.

The Blacktail Hotel 3 person tent offers a robust and sturdy camping shelter with a trail-friendly weight and design underpinned by Big Agnes' quality construction. A superb 3-season tent equally at home on wild camping trips to multi-day car camping and trekking.
