G'day Shaun, there is no specific footprint for the Isopod, so it's really just a case of finding a tarp, some fabric or mesh that will fit in line with how you would use the tent. We have a tarp that will be slightly bigger than the footprint of the Isopod, you can view it here. You could also repurpose something like the Oztrail Hiker Fly and remove all the guy ropes, it would then double as an emergency lunch shelter. Hope this info helps.

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 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

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(10 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

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!

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.
