Featuring a full rip-stop nylon inner for increased warmth, the Isopod has two double mesh/rip-stop nylon zippered doors each with roomy vestibules. Double brow poles create a roomy interior with upright walls that offer plenty of head room.

Used twice, no faults

This tent is 95% perfect. Removing the top transversal red poles from the eyelets in the tent can be a bit tricky; a longer tab strap would make it easier. A second loop to keep the door of the outer tent rolled and tidy would be nice too. The design of interior pockets, ventilation windows and double doors (with normal and mozzie mesh) is perfect. I measure 184 cm and can sleep comfortably. Two people and basic gear fit fine. Haven't tested bad weather conditions,

Worth recommending

Used my new isopod over the long weekend, simple setup even for me, slept two of us but with not a lot of room left over. We had strong winds on both nights and light showers, tent handled conditions well. Biggest challenge, is getting the darn thing back in the carry bag, I ended up taking it home with the outer cover separate.

Great tent

Took this down into the Grose Valley in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney on the Easter long weekend. A great tent. Had some heavy rain during the night and stayed dry and warm inside. Easy to erect, strong and sturdy. If you don't mind a slightly heavier tent when hiking, this is well worth the extra weight for the comfort and room it provides. The price was amazing too, considering it's very expensive elsewhere.

Great tent for two up biking

Just starting out camping on our bike. This tent is compact, reasonably light weight, simple to erect/dismantle, quite spacious and appears very sturdy. The pricing from Snowys was spot on. Thanks guys.

Great tent

Used this tent on my last motorbike trip (June). it was super easy to erect , (less then 15 minutes ). It was windy night but the tent didn't moved at all. And a good surprise in the morning - no condensation at all ! It was roomy enough for me and all my bike gear, and can accommodate two people as well, but then some of the gear will need to be store at the vestibules. (you have two of them.) all in all, I'm very please with this tent and will highly recommend it.

Hi there. Just wondering if this tent would become too warm in hot weather? Can't decide between isopod and grasshopper. I plan to camp in all weather conditions so looking for something versatile...is either one more durable than the other? Would it likely get too cold camping in Vic winter in the grasshopper? Many thanks in advance!1 answers

Thanks!

G’day Meaghan,

Both the Isopod and the Grasshopper models are well made tents that we receive great feedback on, so I couldn’t put one above the other in terms of quality or durability.

Keep in mind that your tent’s main job is to shield you from the wind and rain - your crucial warmth will come mainly from your sleeping bag and thermals.

In summer, the Isopod will have less ventilation than the Grasshopper so you are going to get more condensation build up in your tent - but if you use minimal sleeping gear you could make it work. And with the Grasshopper, if you use it with a lower rated sleeping bag, a great mat, and wear thermals - you should be plenty warm.

Having said that, I’d say (and I got a few opinions from the other staff too!) your best bet would be to go with the Grasshopper as it’s lighter, well ventilated, and you can simply adjust your sleeping gear according to the season.

Hi guys, I'm looking for an all seasons tent that would be good for kayaking, hiking and MTB weekends away. Would you suggest Isopod would do the job or would you recommend something else?1 answers

- WILLIAMSTOWN, SA(8 months ago)
It will certainly do the job Gary, there are plenty of other options that will also suit. The Isopod is a sturdy tent that is best suited for cool to cold climates, it has a full nylon inner which will retain warmth. If most of your trips are in warm climates then you may prefer the Grasshopper 2 which has a full mesh inner, facilitating better ventilation in warm climates but lacks warmth retention in the cold. Both of these tents are suitable, it is just handy to know the limitations of each and adjust your sleeping arrangements accordingly.

Is this tent suitable for camping in snowy condistions?2 answers

- MELBOURNE, VIC(8 months ago)
Hi Simon, The Isopod is a 4 season hiking tent, which means it can be used at all times of the year. This also includes snow conditions, though I'd invest in a really good sleeping mat and sleeping bag to help keep you warm at night! Have fun camping in the snow!
- Snowys(8 months ago)
Hi SImon, just wanted to jump in with my 5 cents worth here. There is a difference between four season and snow tents, whilst a four season tent like this is suitable for cold snow conditions, it will have limitations in heavy snow being that the frame will not withstand heavy snow loading. This is not likely to be an issue in many light snow conditions we have here in Australia, but if you plan on camping at altitude in conditions where the snowfall is heavy, then an alpine tent may be a better solution, these have a strong pole structure and shed snow better then the Isopod. We don't currently have these in our range, but give me a call on 1300 914 007 if you wold like to talk it over.
