The Blacktail tent offers campers who don't go out as regularly a solid design and well made tent. With a large sized inner and practical mix of mesh and fabric - they are a bit heavier than other tents in the range but they are more durable and offer fantastic value for money.

Description  Features
The Blacktail two, three, and four-person tents are light enough for the backcountry, and strong enough for the front country. A tried and true shelter with excellent value for backpackers who want a super comfortable tent after a long day on the trail. The Blacktail series of tents offers spacious sleeping areas with easy access through two, side-entry doors and vestibules, making early morning entry and exit with a tent-mate more stealth when nature calls.

Big Agnes's 2020 Blacktail 3 Tent is a spacious 3 person backpacking tent with two entrances and two porches - one of the most convenient designs available. While it's not among the lightest in this design it has good head height, internal space and offers a more durable set up with the choice of materials used. 

The tent uses a classic pole design that is strong enough to stand up to the weather while providing a good space inside. The materials used are heavier than Big Agnes normally use but this results in a stronger, more hardwearing and less expensive shelter. The inner tent is a good mix of fabric and mesh so that there's protection from wind and rain, and it also has good ventilation making the tent suitable for a range of conditions. 

With two entrances, two porches and plenty of internal storage the Blacktail series are well thought out tents that come 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.

The form of shipping will be at our discretion and will be at the most cost effective service. For most parcels this will be Royal Mail Second Class Post, the timescale for delivery is not guaranteed but Royal Mail aim to deliver second class post in 3-4 working days. Some parcels may require a signature.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu, First Class post is available, as is Next Working Day Delivery. We can arrange Next Day Delivery for a Saturday (when the order is placed on Friday) - call us for charges on an individual basis (01740 661467).

EU Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in Europe the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can sometimes take a lot longer - we don't know why.

So, for EU Orders over £15 in value we offer FREE delivery, but the service time is unpredictable. If you need your order by a specific date you can opt for a faster service at the checkout.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster tracked shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu on the checkout page for options. Typically the service we can offer is 2,3 or 4 working days, if you require a faster delivery than is showing on the drop down menu please contact us at info@worldbackpacker.co.uk as we may be able to help.

Rest of World Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping charge is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.

So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
