Reviews of BlackWolf Grasshopper 2 UL Hiking Tent
BlackWolf Grasshopper 2 UL Hiking Tent(5) By: Beau on 23 February 2019Bought this tent today from the Townsville Tentworld after much research into a good quality, relatively light weight, good value for money tent. It was a toss up between this, the companion hiker pro 2, marmot limelight 2p and the zempire zeus 2. This tent came out on top when you compare cost with weight, warranty and packability. I have not tested this in the rain nor in windy conditions yet, but the quality of the materials used, sturdy design and numerous tie down cords should mean that this wont have any dramas in the wind and rain. The fly stays well clear of the inner tent and the ventilation ports which can be propped open means that hopefully condensation wont be an issue. I wish I could give out half stars because despite the good things, everything is not perfect with this tent and I peobably would have given it 4.5, but I'll be kind and round up to a 5 star because the issues were relatively easy to fix. First issue is that the red poles put quite a lot of strain on the stitching that holds the eyelet to the top of the doors. I fear this may be an issue later on, but for now it is holding up. The second issue is that there were numerous stray bits of nylon string from a lack of attention to detail with the stitchwork. In saying that though, the seams are straight and well done and it was just a matter of carefully going around with scissors to cut off the extra pieces to avoid unravelling if caught on something accidentally. Another issue is that the vestibule zip often catches on the overhanging material which is quite annoying. Forget about a fly only pitch with a footprint too as the fly attachments dont allow for it, nor is there an available footprint. I cannot however justify spending over $300 on a lightweight tent just yet, so for the price of $289, you can expect there may be a few minor things that annoy you. All in all this is a great tent and at 2.3kg (mine actually weighes in at 2kg flat) with durable materials, good ventilation and a limited lifetime warranty I am very happy with my purchase. I will provide an update after my hike of hinchinbrook island and Mt Bartle Frere later in the year.
