The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Blacktail Hotel 2 Bikepack from Big Agnes is a unique accessory for bicycle travellers. The tent takes up very little space in its robust storage bag. The tent can be easily carried on the handlebars of the bike using the straps provided. The inner chamber has numerous storage pockets of different sizes and an elastic helmet strap. The double canopy has a buckle strap for hanging out your clothes.
The highlight of this model is the large vestibule at the front of the shelter, which allows you to store all your gear in a dry place or to go on a bivouac with your four-legged friend.
The floor design of the chamber is symmetrical, so there is not the limited space to store 2 mattresses on the floor as in most tents in this category. You have 132cm wide to fit 2 standard size mattresses and 229cm long to lie down comfortably.
In summary, the Blacktail Hotel 2 Bikepack has 2 entrance doors and 2 apses (one extra large and one small) making it easy to move around and store your gear dry inside the vestibules.
Easy to use, self-supporting, this tent is easy to erect thanks to its aluminium cross-pole design and colour coding.
The polyester and mesh inner chamber will protect you from ground moisture and flying and crawling insects while promoting air circulation. The ventilation of the interior is enhanced by the 2 hatches on the flysheet.
The double polyester roof will effectively protect you from bad weather, wind and rain.
It is equipped with internal mesh pockets, 2 multimedia pockets and is delivered with aluminium sardines.
