The Robens Wolf Moon 5XP is a 5 person tent designed for quick pitching and regular use.
At first glance, the Robens Wolf Moon 5XP tent looks like a typical family tent that you might see from Outwell. However, there are some subtle design differences that make this ideal for those who want to camp often. Let’s dig in.
Robens Wolf Moon 5XP Tent Layout
The tent layout is as you’d expect. It’s not a massive tent, and one we would class as ideal for weekend camping or a few nights.
And although it’s rated for 5 people, for a family we recommend two adults and one or two children.
Even though this looks like a traditional family tent layout, there are a few features worth calling out.
The built-in porch is a great addition, and extremely practical for regular family campers. As well as providing somewhere sheltered to sit outside, it’s where you keep all your muddy boots and wet raincoats.
The tent also has two side doors as well as a massive front door that can be fully opened (more on the doors in a bit). This is going to give you lots of pitching options, different layouts for furniture, as well as the option to fully open the tent up on warm summer days.
The Tent’s Doors
There are a few features on the doors you might not find on your typical family tent.
First, let’s look at the side door that doubles up as an additional sun shelter.
When the sun does shine, this feature will create a nice shaded area, and with the doors fully open, plenty of fresh breeze in the tent.
Note that the additional poles do not come with the tent. However, if you are a regular camper, you’d probably have tarp poles like these anyway.
I’d love to pitch this at one of the campsites by a beach 🙂
The other side door is interesting too, in that it is has a built-in vent.
The top half is a mesh, which helps keep the tent well ventilated, reducing condensation inside.
There is a waterproof blind that toggles up on the inside of the tent.
The front door also has different configurations. As shown above, the door is half-zipped. You can unzip the entire door leaving the front of the tent fully open.
As you can see, this front door is recessed into the porch, providing a way to get in and out of the tent when it is wet, without getting rain into your tent.
All the doors come with mesh to let the airflow in, but not the bugs 🙂
The bedrooms at the back of the tent are darkened for a better night’s sleep.
The bedroom also uses the Robens Adaptive Inner, which means you can remove the bedroom on the left if you needed the area for more storage space.
Other Features of the Robens Wolf Moon 5XP
As well as a lantern hook, there’s a cord running across the ceiling, which is an ideal place to hang lightweight clothes to dry.
There are also plenty of storage pockets throughout the tent.
Another nice touch is the re-enforced pegging points. And while talking of re-enforcement, the tent uses the Robens HydroTex HD material, which is extra durable and designed for tents that are going to be used a lot. This material also provides 5000 mm of Hydrostatic Head, which is a lot more than most tents. (The groundsheet has a whopping 10,000 mm hydrostatic head!)
Compared to a lot of family tents, the Robens Wolf Moon 5XP is extremely lightweight, coming in at just 16 kg. That is featherweight for a family tent.
This means it’s going to be really easy to throw this in and out of the back of the car, and very easy for a person to pitch themselves.
The lightness of the packed tent is due to the advanced Robens HydroTex HD tent fabric and the Yunan Alloy anodised tent poles.
The pack size isn’t too big either, coming in at 75 cm long with a diameter of 35 cm, so plenty of room left in your car boot. 🙂
