    Mantis II - Good hiking tent

    published

    I have used this tent on the overland trek, moreton island, stradbroke island, and the kids use it for their scouting hikes too. Over the last 6 years, it has demonstrated excellent longevity, storm proof, possum proof, & plenty of space for a light weight tent. I am 180cm and use a 3/4 hiking mattress and stay secure and sleep fine inside. Takes about 5-10 minutes to set up even when sober. I bought replacement pegs but then I do that for all our family tents too. Lost a part after about 4 years and Blackwolf replaced it once I sent a photo so they could figure out what I was babbling about.

    new version mantis 1

    published

    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...

    Great little tent

    published

    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.

    I'm 2 inches shorter and I had it rubbing on my head and feet. How does it fit a 6ft guy?

    It is a lightweight tent. It does for me ok, I keep my pack in the vestibule. As I said, not much room, I would want.to upgrade to a fancy dome. The black wolf bivy was too small, the mantis 1 is ok for me.

    Great Tent

    published

    I've had this tent for a few years now and done quite a bit of camping with it. As always a 2 man tent is a 1 man tent with gear. I've never had a problem with it. Although the vestibule area is small, it does come in handy to put boots and other small items in. It has started to fade on the doors but this is most likely due to poor care on my part. It is a bit tricky putting it up in the rain but i found lying the fly over the top of the inner keeps most of the rain off. Stable in the wind and good ventilation.

    Great little waterproof tent that is good value for money. I am glad I bought it, however I wish the side doors could have also had waterproof sides to help if erecting in the rain.
    This is a very compact well made hiking tent that looks great and is easy to install. When it is packed up it takes up little space.
    The tent pegs bend easily. (it is worth investing in some strong steel tent pegs.
    Because of all of the mesh sides in the tent, expect the inside to get wet if you are unfortunate enough to have to erect it whilst it is raining.

    One drawback of a yellow tent is the illusion that it appears to be daylight if you wake up in the middle of the night, The newer ones changed to green.

    Excellent

    Would take this tent anywhere that it wasn't snowing. Have had this tent for three years and still looks and performs as good as new. Hard to go past for the price.
    Great tent for remote area hiking. Light and relatively spacious (pack doesn't have to stay outside)Quick to set up (four to six minutes depending on ground hardness) Cool in tropical but seals well against wind and rain. Can warm up nicely in 0-5 deg temps. High vis colour good for emergency location if required. love the mesh gear stow hanging from the roof.
    Not a huge amount of headroom. Must be quick to set up if raining because of mesh sides.

    Would this tent need a footprint?

    In my experience I've never needed one. The material is thin but I've always cleared where I'm going to set up as much as possible and its been fine. A footprint might not be a bad idea to keep the general wear down but I haven't found it a problem.
