Big Agnes's Blacktail series tents provide good volume accommodation at a reasonable weight and a reasonable price.
Big Agnes says: The Blacktail 3, a three season free standing backpacking tent, offers a spacious sleeping area for three campers. Easy access through two side entry doors and vestibules along with well placed media pockets make the Blacktail 3 an excellent value in backpacking tents.
Big Agnes's Blacktail 3 Tent is a spacious 3 person backpacking tent with two entrances and two porches - one of the most convenient designs available, luxurious if only used by two people. While its not among the lightest in this design it has good head height/internal space and comes 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.
