Blackwolf Tents: Turbo Tent Lite vs Traditional Canvas Tent

There are some very obvious differences between the BlackWolf Turbo Tent Lite and a canvas tent that need to be considered if you’re looking to purchase a family sized tent.

Canvas Tents offer the durability of handling multiple set up and break downs as well as protection from a multitude of conditions but they can be quite heavy. Turbo Lite Canvas Tents on the other hand offer almost the same durability as the Canvas Tent options. Using the latest technology in materials, the light canvas option allows you to customise your tent option to your needs

So while both types of tents are known to be durable and strong the BlackWolf Turbo Tent Lite has some benefits that a traditional canvas tent just can’t offer such as:

1.   The difference in weight

The BlackWolf Turbo Lite is generally about 7 to 10 kgs lighter than a canvas tent of the same size. A considerable variation in weight. The lighter weight of the Turbo makes the transportation of the tent easier; no need for a trailer & they’re more manageable to handle during setup and pack down.

2. Setting up

Any camper will know that setting up a tent is often a task especially when you are tired after travelling and the sun is about set! So, a tent that is easy to handle during set up is a huge bonus because it saves time and energy. BlackWolf Turbo Lite tents are also simple to erect and just as easy to pack away.

3. Cost effective

BlackWolf Turbo Lite tents are the perfect choice when you are looking for a durable, easy to assemble tent for those awesome holidays in the great Australian outdoors. They are light, easy to use and an affordable option.

BlackWolf will be releasing new mesh panels to fit their 2013 Model tents from 15th September 2013.

Multi-tools have to be the coolest gadget ever and I bet that dad secretly thinks so too. It is not always practical to carry an entire tool kit when camping and frankly he doesn’t need to if he has an ultra-handy multi-tool at his side. For repairs, can opening, fishing & hunting. Dad will be able to take charge, and you know he loves to, with a tool that has a solution for everything.
