6 Reviews of the Blacks Constellation Lupus

By: Newage  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2013   Rating: 

The best tent I've ever had. It was tested in torrental rains and winds - never let me down.

LED lighting is nothing extraordidary, In fact I never used it.

The clear windows in the roomy porch are nice feature for a rainy day - I can cook inside, read a book.

Got mine on Ebay and transported it to Bulgaria.

This is a great tent. Think it would be a bit of a squeeze trying to get 3 people in but we've comfortably had 2 people & a dog in ours. It easily fits a double inflatable mattress in. The large porch area is very handy & I love the indoor lights. The tent looks smart once up & is very easy to put up & take down. Before this tent we had a cheap one & you can tell the difference in the the quality of how this tent is made & is very sturdy. Great tent!

Having always bought Vango tents, we were nervous about choosing something else. The specification for the price sold it to us. Just used it for 2 nights on a wettish weekend and could not be happier. Easy to put up, spacious and also very easy to take down. And I loved the LED lights - gave off lots of light. Two of us were very comfortable, but three adults may be a bit of a squeeze. We bought it in the Blacks sale for 55. A great buy!

We bought one earlier this summer as an additional quick-to-put-up tent for our journey to and from the north of Scotland. Lightweight, simple and quick to erect it was perfect for a one-night stay - kept us perfectly dry and the porch area was very useful. As we are getting older we don't do sitting on the ground for long periods therefore we will only use it in this way. However our very tall son is keen to get his hands on it for his camping trips as it would be ideal for him and one of his mates (two men tents tending to be rather short).

Have to agree with AndyRomain's views completely, great tent and easy to put up. You can leave the fly sheet attached for a quick put down if you are moving camps and the light is useful but if you want to play cards or read you'll need something stronger.

Got mine for 46 from Blacks in Sale when they also had 20% extra off too!

Decided to upgrade to a bigger tent now as not enough room for all our camping stuff! Great tent for 2 though.

I've owned one of these excellent tents for just over a year now, and it's never let me down.

I tend to do a lot of 'touring', with one night on a site before moving on, and this tent has stood the test very well, being easy to pitch, and easy to take down. It takes about 25 mins each way.

I have used it on the North coast of Scotland, on the windy cliffs of Durness, and though it bowed with the wind, it held up well, and has been surprisingly strong. It's a comfortable size, with a good bit of room in the sleeping area, and a roomy porch.

My only grip is that the porch groundsheet coupled with the side door design means that in foul weather you tend to bring the weather in with you. But then, this is true of many tents of this type.

The 'built in' lighting system isn't so much built in, more a case of install it, then if you choose to, you can leave it installed when breaking camp. The lights are good, with plenty of power, but I'd recommend removing the batteries before packing it up, as it's easy to switch them on by accident when rolling it up, only to find out the batteries are flat when next pitching.

I've probably pitched this tent around 25 times now, and it has plenty of life and strength left in it. When I purchased it, it was 99, but I have noticed that this years model is available in the post-season sales for around 50, which is an absolute bargain.
