Excellent value for a 4 season tent, the Black Wolf Isopod has sleeping room for two people on expeditions into cold environments.
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.
Two adjustable external vents and four zippered internal vents facilitate air flow, while internal side and roof stash pockets as well as numerous hanging loops create a versatile living space for lightweight adventurers.
Brought this tent for 13 yo scout. Very sturdy, easy to pickup and put down. Cross bars were tight to take down but side access design great. Will be great to take on long hikes coming up.
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,
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
