The Black Wolf Mantis range have become known as a staple for hikers who want a compact, reliable, and low profile tent for rugged outdoor excursions. Now even lighter than the original, this nifty model shaves 25-30% of weight off the original – so it’s even more hike-friendly than before.
When you’re in intense conditions, the last thing you want is a big protruding shelter that rattles around in the wind. The Mantis is lower to the ground which will help keep your shelter secure when conditions aren’t ideal. The nylon fly has a waterhead rating of 2000mm, and taped seams to keep you dry should the weather turn sour. For warmer evenings you'll still get some cool coming through the No-see-um mesh head and foot vents, while keeping those pesky biting insects out of your space.
The Mantis allows enough room under the vestibules for you to store your boots or other dirty gear out of the way, and has internal storage pockets to keep your valuables with arm's reach. For a low profile and reliable tent that’ll shelter you after a rugged day on the track, you can’t go past the Mantis 2 UL tent from Black Wolf.
Used this on a recent trip to Moreton island where it HAMMERED down rain with winds up to 100km/h for around an hour and the tent held strong with no leaks. Mind you, I did purchase sand pegs for the trip as I feared the weather would be bad. The standard pegs that come with it are a good length and very light. The zips seems very sturdy. It has LOTS of stays and tie down points to make it crazy stable. takes about 3 mins to put up once you get the process. the vestibules are really big, a lot bigger than expeed which I'm stoked about. Room to sit up while in the tent and you can easily open and close the vents with rigid velcro poles. The poles are magentised so when you start putting them together they snap into place really easily and quickly without needing to push it together. Goes up very rigid. Only downside is, there is a few less pegs than there are options to tie the tent down so you may need to buy few extras but not really a big deal.All in all I was a bit wary of this purchase as I didn't find any reviews online however I'm pretty stoked about it. Very good looking tent. Love black wolf as we also have black wolf sleeping bags which are crazy comfortable. Hope this helps
