Big Agnes Blacktail Hotel 2 Bikepack Tent

5 items left

Big value for a short pole bikepacking tent. 

We like this tent for motocamping because it has the short bikepacking poles and the pricepoint makes it a big value. The shorter poles in the bikepacking version allows this tent to easily pack in panniers and sidebags. It does pack slightly larger than the other UL options, but if you have a little more space you can save a few bucks and camp very comfortably. The 2 person tent is the perfect size for 1 rider and all your gear can be stored inside with you. If you happen to have a second person with you the garage is an awesome place to keep your gear out of the weather creating room for two people to sleep. The extended footprint under the garage helps keep everything clean. If you get stuck in the rain and have to hang out in the tent longer than expected, that garage is a game changer. 

New to our bikepacking family of tents, and inspired by the tried and true Blacktail Series, these tents are known for their spacious sleeping areas with easy access through two, side-entry doors and vestibules at an excellent value. Designed for on and off-road, two-wheeled travel including all of the features built for bikepacking. The Blacktail Hotel Bikepack tent is light enough for backcountry trails and strong enough for the front country roads.
