For a quick overnight stop when the weather is fine, the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Touring Cap Fly clips to your Turbo or Turbo Lite tent in a jiffy and protects it from heavy desert dew and dry and windy conditions.
Available in two sizes: Black Wolf Turbo Lite Touring Cap Fly 240 (use with Black Wolf Turbo Lite 240 Tent and Black Wolf Turbo 240 Tent) and Black Wolf Turbo Lite Touring Cap Fly 300 (use with Black Wolf Turbo Lite 300 Tent and Black Wolf Turbo 300 Tent). Similar to a normal fly, the Touring Cap Fly comes without the typical awning set up to ensure that installation is super quick and easy.
With guy out points to the frame adding structural strength as well as offering a cover for the roof vents, the Black Wolf Turbo Touring Cap is sturdy in wind but is NOT suitable in heavy rain conditions. For camping in rain, use a regular fly with a front awning.

If it has 2000 water head would it be OK in light rain Can it be treated with water repellent spray
Barry - Thornbury, VIC (4 months ago)
Yep, 2000mm Waterhead rating would be fine in light rain. A lot of tents have a 2000mm Waterhead rating as standard for year-round use, so you shouldn't have any issues with this fly. It can be treated with water repellant spray once it's old and worn out, but there's nothing that you can do that will increase its Waterhead rating when brand new, and there's no real need to either.

use as permanent fly1 answer
i’m interested in the turbo series tent but don’t have a need for the awning, is it ok to use this over the top of the tent instead of the awning fly that’s included?
Brayden - Melbourne, VIC (6 months ago)
Yep, it is, but its Waterhead rating is on the lower side. Would only really recommend this for fair weather camping options. If you're expecting rain it'd be best to chuck the proper tent fly on. Hope that helps!

will this fit other instant tents?1 answer
for instance the coleman instant up 4p and the blackwolf turbo 240 x-lite
ray - perth(2 years ago)
Unfortunately not, these fly caps will only attach to the Turbo 240 or 300, and Turbo Lite 240 or 300.

Can I leave this on & pack away with the tent?1 answer
Is the bulk small enough that i can just leave it fitted and pack it away with the tent?
Drew - IVANHOE(4 years ago)
You can leave the Black Wolf Turbo Touring Cap Fly on when you pack your tent up, it will still all pack away. Just keep in mind though that it might affect the lifetime of the fly as it will pinch and rub when packed away.

Would this fit Oztrail Tourer 240?1 answer
I have the Oztrail Tourer 240 and wondered if this would fit for those extra windy conditions?
Amber - Albany (4 years ago)
The Black Wolf Touring Cap Fly should go over the Oztrail Tourer 240 alright but it won't be a perfect fit, so there might be the opportunity for some wind gusts to get in underneath the fly because it will be loose in some areas.

Does this fit the 300 Plus? Or will there be a Model suitable for the 300 Plus tents?3 answers
We own a 300 Plus (Canvas) and would LOVE one of these for overnight stays when we don't need the full awning. I feel like if at the rear the straps to clip to the base were looser, it would almost fit over the Plus models? Just wondering if anyone has tried this in store? Thanks! :-)
Nicole - ALbury/Wodonga(6 years ago)
We haven't tried this for ourselves in store, and as far as I can find we haven't had any feedback from other customers who have tried this successfully either. I'd say that because of the shape of the back of the tent, it would be a struggle to get the Turbo Touring Cap to fit your Turbo 300 Plus tent.Â
I've just flicked through the 2016/17 Black Wolf catalogue, and there doesn't seem to be any plans to release one in the plus size for the upcoming season.
I'm sure Black Wolf would love to hear your feedback aboutÂ additions to their Turbo rangeÂ - you can get in touch with them through their websiteÂ hereÂ if you like.Â
Emily - Snowys(6 years ago)
Thank you Emily for your fast answer! Yes I suspected that even if it did fit over, it would put some stress on the rear compartment/wide walls) I suspect with a small modification by a seamstress it could be fitted properly with some extra fabric to expand where the rear pops out from the frame, might be an option for us. We would like to be able to use the 300 Plus without the time taken to pop the full awning up, but having the protection against a small amount of rain or breeze.
Nicole - Albury-Wodonga(6 years ago)
No worries at all, that's what we're here for.
Thatâ€™s sounds like it could be a good solution to your dilemma, but just bear in mind that modifications wonâ€™t be covered by a warranty, so there is a bit of a risk there. Good luck with your TurboÂ though Nicole!Â

Will there be a canvas turbo touring cap fly?1 answer
Paul - Sydney(6 years ago)
I've had a look through the information in Black Wolf's 2017 catalogue, and theÂ Turbo Lite Touring Cap is the onlyÂ model mentioned.
I can't say for sure whether they will or won't bring one out in the future, but I think it's safe to say that there won't be a canvas option for the upcoming season. Â
