The Black Wolf Grasshopper 2 is distinguished from other 3-Season two-person tents by innovative pole configuration that gives it the stability of a dome tent, good headroom and two convenient entrances with convenient vestibules covering both.
The ripstop polyester PU fly and floor materials and heat-taped seams ensure water repellency in bad weather, while the dual side vestibules are invaluable for storing your boots, pack, and even your wet or muddy gear out of your sleeping space. Pitching is easy, as the poles, pole end webbing and clips are colour coded which make pitching super-fast. This tent features a tear drop shaped door with zips all around on either side, which makes accessing the Grasshopper easy.
There is excellent air flow through ventilation from the mesh inner, plus extra vents in the fly. The reflective strips mean the tent is easy for you to locate at night, while during the day the ecologically friendly green colour blends in with the environment.
I've gone lighter for backpacking - but when you're kayaking, you can afford to take that little bit extra weight for comfort. That's why I bought the Black Wolf Grasshopper 2. It does exactly what what I wanted, it is a mansion for one - and I can fit myself and all the gear I like inside the tent. Colour coding makes it easy to pitch - it is one of the easiest to pitch tents I've owned. Used it a few times now, including being in really stormy weather, and it's kept me dry. MINUS: The only minus is the pegs, they are really weak - and bend too easy. I take stronger ones with me.
Great tent. Easy to fit in the ruck sac, and light. Easy and fast to pitch and pack away. I added a groundsheet to protect it.
Great size, and a nice, lightweight tent for overnight hiking. However there was an issue with the fly not perfectly fitting the poles correctly, meaning it leaked in the corners above each door.
Quality tent and best price I found with Snowys
I use this tent for off-road motorbike touring and love it. Well priced, light, packs down small, easy to pitch. I'm 6"2 and struggled to find a tent that had enough length, till I found this, which is more than ample. There's just enough vestibule room for my soft panniers when I'm out riding for the day. The pole frame maximises the interior space, particularly at the head/foot ends by keeping the walls as vertical as possible. I added a tarp base and stronger pegs, that's all.
Very happy overall. Sturdy, easy to put up and down. Roomy enough to sleep 2 comfortably and sit up in. Would recommend.
- Easy set up and pack up
- Packs down light and small
- The pegs are weak and bent easily
- For my size I would have liked the tent to be slightly longer
- The design of the doors made it a bit awkward getting in and out of the tent
Does the black wolf grasshopper 2 have more sleeping space than the black wolf mantis ULII?
Technically the Matis II actually has slightly more sleeping area as its 210cm x 140cm whereas the Grasshopper 2 is 200cm x 130cm.
Bear in mind the design though as the Grasshopper will feel roomier because of the top floating pole whereas the fly of the Mantis comes in at a sharper angle, therefore, cutting off headroom and the feeling of spaciousness.
Is this tent rated for use / recommended for use in Australia's snow alpine areas during winter?
