Gorilla Grow Tent Product Review
Gorilla, probably one of the most well known and respected names when it comes to grow tents. They’ve sold hundreds globally and are discussed on most grow forums at some point or another.
There’s just no getting away from Gorilla when starting your own set-up, so let’s take a look.
A real strong point for the Gorilla range is the many sizes their tents come in, starting from 2 x 2.5, all the way up to 10 x 20. They really do have options for everyone, on top of this, extension kits are also available.
Gorilla prides itself on its build quality, encompassing quality materials throughout its whole range.
The canvas material used in all models is of 1680D density cloth, this sits on strong metal frames that use 19mm – 22mm thick poles in its construction. The frames utilize an interlocking system rather than your cheaper plastic connectors.
Models across the whole range have the ability to be extended upwards, with patent-pending technology, not just your normal side to side. Which gives them a distinct advantage over their competitors, and provides a lot more growing room.
The interior across all models incorporates a highly reflective diamond material blend technology, meaning greater grow light reflection, light distribution, and fewer heat spots.
In Gorillas Lite Line models, a cutting edge peva binding technique is used to merge the exterior canvas and diamond reflective interior, Gorilla claim this provides more rigidity over some competitor models.
All models come with observation windows, multiple ducting/porting with the ability of duel cinching and mesh tool pockets sewn into the side panels interior. There’s a removable floor tray and various fastenings also included.
Access is normally from the front, with the flaps opening in a T-shape or side variation. Some models will also have smaller rear access flaps integrated as well.
It’s not all positive from the Gorilla range though, with a brand as big as they are, that sells hundreds of tents worldwide, you’re always going to have mixed reviews.
Some of the more common complaints can be of build quality compared to the price, pinhole light leakage, air leakage, faulty zippers and poor seam quality resulting in tears.
As you’d expect from one of the leading providers of grow tents, the prices are far more expensive compared to its competitors.
But the prices seem justified by many, as the build quality is thought to be far superior. They generally start from around two hundred dollars upwards.
There’s no denying Gorilla are the top dogs at present in the grow tent market, at least in terms of popularity anyway. And rightly so some would say, as they’ve produced quality products for many years.
But when considering the use of Gorilla grow tents in your set-up, you’ll inevitably come to the conclusion you’ll be spending a lot more money.
What you must decide as a cultivator, is does the end product justify the initial cost? For the many growers using their tents, the answer is yes.
