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.

Head height1 answers

Is it possible to sit up in this tent? for changing?

- Vic(1 week ago)

G'day Sooz, 

The maximum internal height of the Mantis UL I Hiking Tent from Black Wolf is 70cm. I'm 5"6 and I wouldn't be able to sit up inside comfortably. You may be able to depending on your height - but it is quite a cosy tent, so it's probably not optimised for getting changed in.

Is the other side of the tent mesh or a solid material?1 answers

The old model had a door on each side but this new model only specifies one door. Is the other side mesh or solid material?

- Gisborne(2 weeks ago)

G'day Matt, 

I've given Black Wolf a call and they've confirmed that the door on this tent is mesh, and the other side has a mesh panel at the top, with a solid panel at the bottom.

Do the mantis come with light pegs?1 answers

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.

- Morphett Vale(1 month ago)

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.
