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.

Wolf Moon 5XP Side Door 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. 🙂

    Hi. I recently bought the Robens Wolf moon 5xp. After spending the first night in the tent, I was quite disappointed. The outside tent was full of bugs, although we closed the door and window. Finally we saw that the tents front corner are not sewed up. Same problem with the side door. The upper corner of the side door is not sew up.

    Does anyone has the same problem?

      That’s a disappointment. If it’s a manufacturing defect, raise it with who you bought it from. They should issue you a replacement or refund.

    Hi Gav
    Please can you explain more about how the window system works? I’m baffled!

    Is it, from outdoors to indoors:
    1) mesh
    2) clear window
    3) blind

    And which of 1,2,3 can be unzipped or unclipped? If the clear window is behind the mesh how is the water managed that comes through the mesh? The pictures make it look like there is a black mesh panel as the last layer outside? If so, do you always have that dark triangle appearing?

    Thanks in advance – and sorry if I’m being dim!

      Hi Chris,

      Yes, that’s right. The mesh is on the outside, then you have the clear window, then you have the blind.
      So the dark triangle is the mesh and that’s always there.
      It is a similar set-up that Zempire tents use. I was sceptical at first on the Zempire tents, but when I tried it, and sprayed it with the hose, it worked OK. No water came in (as the clear plastic window was zipped up), and the mesh dried out in the air very quickly. I suspect it will work the same on this Robens tent.

      On our Robens Kiowa, it has the plastic window on the outside, then the mesh, then the blind. However, to unzip the window, you have to go outside.

      I had a look at this window set-up in a similar tent to the Robens Wolf Moon, the Robens Eagle Rock, and both the clear window and the blind could be unzipped and rolled up from inside the tent.
