Recently I had the chance to test the BlackWolf Tanami Delta 6 tent on a camping trip at the foothills of Victoria’s high country.
It was the perfect location to see how the tent would perform in both the warm weather during the day and cold weather at night.
Overall, it took me about 30 minutes to set the tent up for the first time. And apart from locating the front door on the fly, it way quite easy and straight forward to pitch. With a little practice, I think I could pitch it in about 10 minutes, if not less. Below is a video of the tent being pitched.
The size of the tent can comfortably accommodate 5-6 people. And the 2m head height made it very easy to move about and get changed without having to crouch or sit down.
The BlackWolf Tanami Delta 6 has been designed with ventilation in mind. This means that the tent breathed well and did not form any condensation on the inside. This is great, because I have slept in tents that drip during the night and I can tell you that it isn’t a pleasant experience, however it does mean that the tent gets a little cold at night. You can adjust the ventilation, but I think that a decent sleeping bag that is at least or below zero degrees Celsius is needed if you are planning to camp during the cooler times of the year (when it can be below 6 degrees at night). Having said that, I would not say that it is a negative, because all tents get cold at night, (that’s camping for you), and it is better to have a dry tent than a wet one.
There is for me one downside to the BlackWolf Tanami Delta 6 tent, and that is the pegs provided. Unlike my BlackWolf Gobi BP 3 tent which came with thick pegs, the Tanami Delta 6 came with thinner ones. This was a little disappointing because I was expecting thicker pegs. Perhaps one of the reasons for this is because they may have wanted to keep the overall package weight down. It is quite heavy at 12.5Kg. None of the pegs actually bent while being hammered into the ground, (and I did hit rock a few times and stubbornly tried to force the peg through), but I would have preferred thicker ones even if it is heavier.
Other than that, I found the BlackWolf Tanami Delta 6 to be a good quality tent, that comes with sturdy poles, a decent amount of storage and guy ropes attached to zippered pockets on the fly. And even though it is made in China, it is easy to see that the Tanami Delta 6 is made to last, and I’m happy with that.
