Not weatherproof!

5 yrs old, medium level usage. Waterproofing seams have peeled away and this expensive tent now leaks. Very poor quality. Do not buy. Show details

Great Tent

Very easy to put up and take down when using for overnight stops. Hold us to the wind really well with all corners pegged down and guy ropes pegged. Makes our camping trips very enjoyable even if it rains. Show details

Great tent, quick to put up

Bought the 240 turbo lite with side Panels and front door for awning, first thing is it's a heavy tent, approximately 25KG, love the tent and how practical it is. Show details

Dissapointed, not worth price

Bought turbo lite 240 about 6 months.
Like some other reviews condensation on inner tent and fly can be excessive. Moisture from fly drips through and penetrates inner tent.
Also bought 2 sidewalls... Don't bother, they don't work so save your money. Awning and sides will collapse in light wind.
Blackwolf customer service is far from satisfactory...ignore issues and till they go away. Good luck wirh any warraties.  Show details

Hassle to get fly up

Brilliant tent, but if solo just give yourself 2 hrs to put up if using all panels, and an hour to take down. Watch your head when pulling down the inner. Got separate canvas duffels for each component - bazooka size good for canvas, rifle bag for poles, ammo bag for pegs and footprint. Kept windows open then got inch of rain that night. No problem - mopped up annex, packed up wet and made it home. Bone dry inside inner with good ventilation during downpour - just remember to roll down the window flaps around annex. Home away from home with decent inflating mattress.

DISAPPOINTED

After first use was very disappointed with tent. Leaks in light rain and dew. Screw holding one leg base on was sheared off when tent opened for first time. We have to take it back to where we purchased and they will fix it, somehow. Bought one side to front awning. Very disappointed with this as water flows through the material.

If thinking about a tent, buy a Coleman Instant Up. We had one, but wanted something larger. The Coleman does not leak like a sieve, and we found to be a far superior tent, even though it was a fraction of the price of the Black Wolf.

Retailer fixed leg and discovered that two other legs were also dodgy and were repaired at same time. Expensive tent, only to need repair after first use. At least Tentworld fixed the problems promptly.

Blackwolf 300 plus tent

Great in dry weather, fills up with water when it rains very disappointed I wouldn't recommend this tent, I've been out with others with cheaper tents which handled the rain a lot better then the black wolf 300 plus I own

Terrible Tent

Inner tent leaked and fly / awning ripped apart in moderate rain and wind. Blackwolf will not replace or repair under warranty. The tent was only used twice. Have since bought and used an Oztrail Tourer 300 Fast Frame tent in torrential rain and thunderstorms. Unlike the Blackwolf the Oztrail was rock solid and didn't leak and is a fraction of the cost of the over priced Blackwolf. My advice is to stay away from Bkackwolf products. Poor quality and workmanship and poor customer service.

Great for family of 4

Easy to set up & pack up with a bit of practice. Fly works well, used in hot or cold weather, to keep heat down & condensation out. Tall enough to stand up & get changed. We use 2 singles & a double self inflatable mattress & still have room to move. We have had this tent for a few years now & have had no issues with it. A well designed & made tent. Worked really well in the High country.

Love it

A really good tent, and I've had plenty of others over 40 years of tent based camping.

Easy to erect and pack up.

Excellent workmanship and materials.

Gussets on windows prevent rain from blowing inside if you have the window flaps open in wet weather.

A well designed and made tent. Worth EVERY cent.

I have turbo lite plus that I purchased about 5 yrs ago from BCF . I used this when we first got for one week then the second time for two nights only .this week my daughter said she was go to shark bay and suggested to take my tent as it’s only been used twice .first night it rained anything on the floor was soaked including laptop I have been told the tape behind the stitching is peeling falling off so would like to know what can be done to make it watertight.

Details

Features:

  • The Black Wolf Turbo Lite Plus comes in 2 models: the 240 model sleeps 7 people while the 300 model sleeps 8 people.
  • It has a curtain divider that lets you divide the tent into 2 rooms, or rolled away to give you one big sleeping space, so you can camp your way.
  • The tent has a 3 pole awning that is advertised as being able to handle all weather conditions.
  • Roof vents and mesh doors and windows (that also can’t be seen through for extra privacy) allow for ventilation so you can keep cool in the warmer months and dry in more humid climates.
  • A zippered power cord access lets you use electricity, suh as for a lamp, so you can feel right at home wherever you are.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers found that this tent was easy to put up and pack down, however some reviewers did note that it was a bit tricky to set up the poles the first time around.
  • Reviewers also appreciated how spacious the tent was, saying that it was tall enough to stand up in and get changed.
  • According to reviewers, this tent provided a good amount of ventilation, even during a downpour.

Pain points:

  • Some reviewers said that the awning and side walls didn’t always hold up well in windy weather, with a few of these users noting that their awning ripped in these conditions.
  • A few reviewers also found that the tent was quite heavy and big to store, with one reviewer stating that the weight was heavier than advertised when they tested it out.
