For the lone wolf who likes to explore off the beaten track, the newly updated Mantis UL 1 from Black Wolf is a low profile, easy to use tent that will shelter you in all kinds of conditions.Now even lighter and pack friendly then before, the new model shaves 25-30% of weight off the original.
When you’re faced with Mother Nature’s finest gusty conditions, the last thing you want is to be a in a tall, protruding shelter that’ll rattle in the wind. The Mantis has a low profile structure which will help keep your shelter steady when conditions aren’t ideal. For protection against rain the nylon fly has a waterhead rating of 2000mm, and has taped seams to keep water out.In warmer conditions you’ll have plenty of air flow that’ll come through the No-see-um mesh head and foot vents plus you'll have the added insect protection.
You can keep your pack and boots outside of your clean shelter, as this tent has enough space under the vestibule to store your gear. There are also internal pockets to keep important items like your phone or PLB at arm’s reach once you’re all settled in. For a reliable low profile tent that’ll shelter you after a rugged day on the track, you can’t go past the Mantis 1 UL tent from Black Wolf.
Do the mantis come with light pegs? Or would I be better off buying some sea to summit ground control pegs? I am trying to go ultralight but not ultra expensive.
The pegs are regular 'hook' style pegs, but they are lightweight alloy, I tried to attach a photo for you but we are having upload issues in our store at the moment sorry. The ground control pegs will be stronger and more packable, but not necessarily lighter.
