Black Wolf Turbo vs Turbo Lite

Postby TheOtherLeft » Mon May 03, 2010 4:33 pm

What are people's opinions on the Turbo Lite (Polyester) tents?

I know the Turbo (canvas) range is the duck's nuts but what about the newer Lite (polyester) range?

On the 240 models there is a 7kg weight saving and I'm not sure if I really need the durability of the canvas model as I would only be using it once a month at most.

I slept under a canvas tent (Diamentina 240) last weekend and geez it looked heavy. I think the polyester version would suit me more and having a look at the Turbo Lite in Anaconda it does look like a quality bit of gear.

Does anyone have any first hand experience with them?

Black Wolf products have a pretty good reputation and I doubt they'd do something shoddy.

I would think they are making a product to supply a particular market.

Had a look at the Black Wolf Tuff Dome tents on the weekend. Very impressive indeed.

I see Oztrail and and Oztent both have Black Wolf clones on the way,to a camping store near you. Here is the Oztrail Blitz. Pricing is on a par with the Black Wolf turbo. The Oztent Jet series is coming in July. Can't find a pic yet.
