new version mantis 1
I bought the mantis 1 a few years back and loved it so much I upgraded to the mantis 1 new version..it has a stronger ground sheet and still cozy in the winter season...I stick with the green colour as I like to blend in with my surroundings ..I took it bike packing in Japan and it really was an asset to take camping...
Well made tent, with large vestibule and
Well built, no problems with it at all.
As a tallish man, this tent is comfy to sleep with plenty of room to stretch out. My partner and I can just squeeze into a Mantis I, it's doable but I wouldn't recommend it. For solo camping it's just enough room for 1. It is too low to sit up in for a tall man and some things like getting changes can end out being a bit of an effort.
I'm also very lazy when car camping with this and don't pack it down fully. Roll it up like a mat with all the poles inside. Not really a feature but makes it fas...t for me. Very nice in summer, as you can set it up and leave the long sides open. The relatively large vestibule area in winter has proven handy when wet. There enough room for your hiking pack on one side and boots and wood on the other side.
Great little tent
I bought one a couple of years ago, and have taken it overseas, on motorbike trips and out bush.
Well ventilated, but that does mean that its chilly in cold weather. Ok in hot weather. It fits me at over 6ft ok.
I have used it in moderate rain with no leaks, haven't used it in a big storm yet..touch wood.
I would like to upgrade to a lightweight dome style for more room for me to shelter in, but for the price of this I am very happy and will keep it for a while.
light, well priced, looks cool :p
A bit low for us tall people to clamber in and out of, especially in rain.
