BLACKTAIL SET UP INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove contents from stuff sack. Spread tent body out on ground.
2. Stake out the corners of the tent body.
3. Assemble the three poles: two long silver poles and one short silver crossover pole. Be careful to insert each pole section by hand instead of allowing the shock cord to snap them together to ensure each pole section is fully seated.
4. Run the two long poles diagonally across the tent body crossing at the center.
Insert the pole tips into the grommets at the four corners of the tent.
5. Attach the larger black carabiner style clip located at the top of the tent body to the two long poles. The clip will fit over both poles where they cross.
6. Attach all clips on the tent body to the poles.
7. Insert the tips of the cross-over pole into the webbing pockets, located above the doors on each side of the tent.
8. Drape the rainfly over the tent body aligning the silver and green webbing on the fly to the silver and green webbing on the tent body.
9. Make sure the webbing located at the corners of the rainfly is completely slack- ened. Attach the buckles on the rainfly to those on the tent body.
10. Stake out the vestibules.
11. Evenly tension the webbing on each corner as needed to keep the rainfly taut.
12. Stake out all guy-lines.
FAST FLY SET UP
If you purchase the optional Big Agnes footprint for your Blacktail tent, it will enable you to pitch a shelter while leaving the tent body behind. The Fast Fly configuration requires the footprint, rainfly, poles and stakes.
1. Lay the footprint on the ground and stake out.
2. Assemble the two poles: two silver poles and one short silver crossover pole.
Be careful to insert each pole section by hand instead of allowing the shock cord to snap them together to ensure each pole section is fully seated.
3. Insert the pole tips of the longer poles into the grommets at the corners of the footprint.
4. Drape the rainfly over the poles aligning the silver and green webbing on the fly to the silver and green webbing on the footprint.
5. Affix the Velcro loops on the underside of the fly around the corresponding poles.
6. Thread the shorter pole across the top of where the longer poles cross and place the ends of the pole in the webbing pockets above the doors.
7. Make sure the webbing at the corners of the rainfly is completely slackened.
Attach the buckles on the rainfly to those on the footprint.
8. Stake out the vestibules.
9. Evenly tension the webbing on each corner as needed to keep the rainfly taut.
10. Stake out all guy-lines.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR TENT SET UP
• Our tents are easy to set up but we suggest you practice once at home before using them for the first time to avoid late night bickering with tent mates while fumbling around in the dark.
• Before pitching tent, clear campsite of debris that may pierce tent floor.
• Big Agnes tents are all freestanding, but we recommend staking them out to increase space and keep your tent from becoming a tumbleweed.
• Hang onto your stuff sacks or they’ll blow away and create backcountry litter.
• Pull on the pole sleeve fabric when inserting poles to avoid any bunching in the material.
• Push rather than pull poles through pole sleeves.
TENT CARE
Storage
Always make sure your tent is dry and free of debris before storing. Fold and roll your tent a different way each time to avoid permanent creases. Store in a cool, dry place. Never leave your tent in hot temperatures (such as a car trunk or attic space), as it will damage the material coatings. Storing your tent damp can result in mildew growth, which may cause your tent to smell, leak or delaminate. Mildew damage is not covered under warranty.
Cleaning
For light cleaning, you can sponge the tent with warm water. If it’s necessary to wash the entire tent, always use cleaners recommended specifically for tents. We recommend McNett Mirazyme cleaner, or Nikwax Tech Wash. Do not dry clean or machine-wash your tent. Detergents and dry cleaning solvents will damage the fabric and ruin waterproofing. Never use hot water, bleach, liquid detergents or dishwashing liquids.
Seam Sealing
Seam tape alone is durable enough to prevent water leakage. Any seams that have been taped do not need to be seam sealed with a liquid sealer unless you want extra protection. Make sure the seam-sealer is completely dry before re-packing your tent. Damage caused by misapplication may void warranty.
Zippers
Keeping your zippers clean will help keep the coils and sliders from wearing out. If filled with dirt, vacuum or brush zippers before storing tent. We recommend McNett
Zip Care
Repairs and Warranty
All Big Agnes tents are guaranteed against manufacturing or material defect. We do not warranty products damaged from normal wear and tear, alteration made by owner, misuse, accidents or damages caused by uses other than intended.
Damage due to misuse, normal wear and tear, or improper care may be repaired, at the discretion of Big Agnes, at a reasonable charge. Tents returned for repair must be clean and free of debris.
