We got fed up with the size, weight and packup of our old 240 series black wolf - and got this to replace it. This tent is a lot better than your typical ‘disposals’ family tent and is fair for the price. It fits comfortably into it’s bag and lends itself to being split over a few people. You can save a few kg by replacing the steel pegs with alloy - then with 4 people you can sleep in style for under 2kg per person which isn’t too shabby! Groundsheet is a bit thin for this type of tent.
After my last dome tent (another brand) tore to shreds in the wind, I was doubtful about purchasing another. However a friend recommended this one. It has withstood very strong winds camping along the Strezlecki Track and on Coopers Creek. Being easy to erect, it's perfect for us.
Hi there, I am looking at this tent as a potential for a school camp tent fleet. Students can be pretty unforgiving with equipment such as this. I am wondering what the durability of the zips is like (what type and size are they?), and also if spare parts such as poles, or pole sections are easily and readily available? Many thanks in anticipation, Orion
Out of all our 4 person dome tents, the Tuff Dome from Black Wolf is probably the strongest model that we have in terms of the overall construction.
I’ve just checked for you, and we definitely have access to spare parts from our supplier, and the pole sections can also be fixed fairly easily in the event of breakage.
I have had a look into the zips, and information about the size and type are not given by the supplier as far as I can find. From looking at it in store though I’d say that the size is between a finer high end hiking tent zip and a no. 10 heavy duty size you’d get on a swag.
We’ve got staff who have had this tent for many years and find the zips to still be going strong, so I'd say overall the Tuff Dome is a good option for school camp as it is very reliable.
Hi. I have this tent and want to be able to pitch it when I'm camping alone. How can I stabilize a pole into the eyelet in the woven ground strap so it won't come out as I walk to the other side of the tent? Cheers!
Thanks, Ben. If the pole point comes through the eyelet far enough, vice grip pliers to hold it as the "clip" you suggest is a great idea. Otherwise, maybe, instead of rubber bands, a short length of strong nylon cord. Thanks again.
