Best tent ever

Bought the Bedarra shortly after it was released. Go camping every xmas for 10 days, where strong winds prevail.
Its been reliable from day one. Easy set up and pull down. I (female age 70) can do it myself, but an extra hand is always welcome.
The ventilation design with this tent is the best l ever seen.
Would buy it again. Show details

Great tent - except for the zippers

Bought this tent 18 months ago and was impressed with the quality the first couple of times it was used.
However, after only 3 uses in this time we have found that many of the zippers on the tent have corroded so badly they are now unusable.
We used the tent for camping at the beach so yes, salt air was likely the cause. But for such an expensive tent this isn’t good enough.
Was offered a replacement at cost price, not prepared to throw good money after bad.
Avoid Outdoor Connection tents if you intend to camp anywhere near the coast. Show details

Great Tent. Fantastic service as well

Have only used once but is very solid and well thought out. Parts are simple and robust, unlike another pop up type tent that we borrowed from friends. Had a problem with the bag. It had a faulty seam. It was replaced with no hassle by Outdoor Connection. Purchased through Snowys who were also great.

Takes a bit longer to pitch than a pop up and you have to be quite tall to connect the top poles or use a small step (although maybe we can improve our pitching technique). However I think that is worth it for the added robustness. Show details

Perfect for 2

As first time campers we were a little apprehensive setting up but found it fairly easy (the online video really helped). Had rain and wind first night but tent stayed completely dry inside and it withstood the windy conditions with no issues. Had no problems with mozzies or insects getting inside. We are very impressed with

quality and would highly recommend this, particularly to a couple, perhaps if more than 2 people id have gone with the 3 room version. We are getting the optional front side panels for our next trip to give us additional area we can set up a table outside with protection from wind. Cant fault this tent for newbies to camping

Fantastic features and high quality tent

I spent a long time looking for a tent. I read a large number of reviews, but it was the Outdoor Connection tents that rated the best for water protection. I also liked the fact I could stand up completely in this tent (I'm 5' 11").

This proved to be the most invaluable feature to consider, given the first camping trip taken in it, ended up being a weekend of torrential downpours. The tent stayed dry...in fact our friends ended up ditching their tent and spent the night in the second room of the Bedarra.

I highly recommend this tent for a couple looking for some extra space with high quality fabrics and features and a high water proof rating

It's on the pricey side...but you get what you pay for.and this is good quality

Questions & Answers

What is the weight of the poles if they are in a separate bag? Rottnest ferries have a per bag weight limit of 20 to 22kg... which means the Brampton and Bedarra are too heavy unless we put the poles in separate bags.

Is there a build in flyscreen between the two rooms so if the front of the tent is open flys and mozzies cant get into the bedroom zone can?

Yes there is, it's a large "D" door that is both solid and fly mesh.
