The best tent and after sales service.

Best and most versatile family tent

published

We bought our Brampton in mid 2016 and first used it over a long weekend in November in NW Tas. Got hammered by wind, rain and hail. Other tents got trashed but the three OC Weekenders (Brampton/Bedarra & Heron) all came through intact. No leaks and only a couple of split hornet pole sections. OC supplied us with new replacements free of charge. Since then have used over week period in Bruny island. Easy to set up and versatile in its lay out with end/side awnings and optional awning side walls. Too many features to mention, its just a great tent! Big thanks to OC for their youtube info, FB page and backup service.

Great family Tent

published

We bought this recently as our first family tent. I watched the video on how to put it up and it was so easy and quick. We were at a big school camping event and everyone was coming by to check out our tent. It is so versatile and well built. I can't recommend any higher


Love this tent!

I do adore this tent. We were in terrible wind for a week and this tent was a rock. Easy to put up once you have mastered it. Did look on youtube to get hints and this made a huge difference. I would buy this tent again and I have five different tents and this is our go to tent when all the family are together as it is huge.

Best tent we've had (and we've had a lot)

This is just an amazing brand. We've been in the worst of rain with the tent sitting basically in the middle of the river, and stayed bone try. Heaps of ventilation for the summer months too. Easy to set up.

Amazing tent ! Amazing service

published

We bought this 18 months ago , camp with 4 kids . We go for 3-7 day trips . Tent is super quick to put up takes 20 mins max .
We have edured heavy rain and still dry inside . Temperature is nice due to the ventilation. With the fly being nice and big you can leave the doors open on the screen only. we have camp beds and the floor is not showing any wear.
We got a faulty fly when we purchased it- the stitching was holding closed another part , outdoor connection sent a new one ASAP , no cost .
We get lots of campers commenting on the size and design . Just wish I could afford the extra shade parts with 4 kids that would make a great space.
Will buy outdoor connection again

Handsome Looking Tent

published

Its easy to setup once you've done it for 3-5 times. Its big and spacious. The quality of the material is also good. The extra shade outside is simply an excellent addition to the tent. Great investment.

easy to put up and lots of room

published

Love this tent. Lightweight and easy to put up; a really good quality tent. 3 rooms that you can easily stand up it, so lots of space for our large family. Lots of good details like zipped pockets for the fly ropes and places to hang things from and pockets to put your phone, torch or keys etc. Withstands strong winds and heavy rain too! As an experienced camper I would definitely recommend this tent to other tent buyers.

Love this tent

published

First time camping in this tent and I loved it, easy to put up and easy to fold and get back in bag. Have read some previous comments and the company must have listened because tent came in one bag and the poles in another bag and both good quality. Would highly recommend.

Good tent - great backup service as well

published

I agree this tent is excellent quality for the price. I also found the backup service to be great. We had a problem with the elastic unravelling and falling out of the poles so I rang the company (based in Queensland) and they happily posted out replacement poles very quickly.

Awesome family tent

published

We love this tent! We are into our 3rd year of off road camping and it is still going strong - no issues whatsoever with wear and tear at all (we use it at least 3 times a year for 1-2 weeks at at time). Its easy to put up and take down. There's plenty of room for our family of 4 and gear. I love the huge windows - they are easily opened / closed/ converted/ screened. The room dividers are great too - as they can be fully zipped in or out as a private room or just a screened room. Can't speak highly enough of this tent. Wouldn't even consider a different tent next time round.
Great quality, value for money, great features


The Best Tent

published

I got this tent to replace an Oztrail tent that leaked like a sieve.
The tent is quick and easy to put up by one person. The quality of the construction is easy to see straight away.
The tent stays cool during the day & cosy at night by using the windows which have privacy screens. the airflow is great as there are plenty of windows & doors.
The size is great for our family of 4 soon to be 5. There is plenty of room to store everything you need.
I would definately recommend this tent.
Roomy, sturdy, great quality, easy to assemble


Fantastic Tent

published

I have had this tent for over a year, after looking for a top quality product that was larger enough for the family. this tent is very fast to put up for it size, there are some short cuts that you can take when you have the hang of it. Internal space is huge and the vertical walls are a big plus! overall the best tent Ive ever owned....

Hi, I'm looking at getting this tent. but I haven't seen it up. Is it roomy enough for 2 adults, 2 young kids and a teenager for a week? Also do you put a tarp up over it?

A Nice Tent

published

A good tent for a family holiday. Plenty of space and head room. Pretty easy to put up and take down; but if you want a tent that is fast to put up and take down this isn't it. Easier with some help though, and being tallish is a bonus. Plenty of pockets inside. The bag the tent comes in isn't strong enough and rips easily. Also the tent really needs to be split into 2 separate bags I think.

Needs a stonger bag. Should be maybe split into tow separate bags.

Looking at purchasing the Brampton or the Galaxy as a replacement for a 2 room Coleman (growing family). Was wondering if there are privacy screens that you cant see through separating each room rather than just mesh?

2 answers

Hi Sheryl, certainly with the Brampton the room separating screens are not see through. We leave them half zipped (from top to bottom) as half room dividers and roll the unzipped portion vertically (use large plastic pegs to secure) for easy access between rooms. Hope this helps, certainly a great tent!

Hi Sheryl, as Dan mentioned the room dividers have the mesh and the privacy screens plus the windows and doors have mesh plus privacy screens. The privacy screens can be rolled away leaving the mesh in place or roll away both on one go without separating them.
We have use our Brampton tents many times since my first review and it’s fantastic. Bucket loads of room and very water proof. Easy to put up for such a big tent. 2 people are needed. We now have the basic set up completed in 20 mins with just the fly sheet pegs to push in. Hope this helps. Breezer.

We went camping over the Christmas break and had a little wind storm and awoke to find ourselves and our belongings covered in dust that had been blown up between the fly the the mesh... thus researching a new tent! can anybody tell me how high up the mesh windows sit up off the floor, and if the the fly flaps/billow out to allow the dust to fly up and in on the Brampton?

1 answer

Hi SarahT
The bottom of the mesh for the windows/doors is approx. 6 inch above the ground. On our last trip we left the no see me cover open and dust did enter the tent. However the no see me cover can be opened at the top only preventing the dust coming into the actual tent. The top of the no see me cover is approx 1.8 m high and I suspect it would have to be a strong wind to make it blow over the top and I tom the tent.
Hope this helps.
Breezer.

We have the coleman montana gold series and after only 16 months the main zip has broken. We like the layout as the rooms dividers have mesh to keep the mosquitoes out of the bedrooms. My son is quite allergic to bites. Can you please advise if this tent has the same room dividers and what material the flooring is? The coleman has very tough flooring and we recently camped for 12 nights with no leaks. Rays outdoors are going to refund us as the tent is under warranty. Is there a Victorian stockist where we could see the tent set up?

3 answers

Hi there. Yes the Brampton has mosquito net dividers for each room. The floor is heavy duty weave. That was one of our key reasons for buying the Brampton, because of the quality of the floor vs the others at that time.
We had our Brampton set up during the wettest period seen in over 20 years of measurements at Tweed heads NSW and felt what I'd describe as only very very slight 'condensation' underfoot after a full week of solid rain (no exaggeration it did not stop raining at all. It did not leak at any point.. I'd suggest you call Outdoor Connection directly for your local distributor/s as they may know which one has this tent set up for viewing..

Do not know of a Victorian stockist who has this tent set up, perhaps you could ring Outdoor Connection, they may know of someone. The Brampton tent has midge proof mosquito netting on internal doorways, as well as all external openings. There are also privacy screens on internal doorways. The OC website will have specs for flooring, but from memory 14 x 14 denier polyethalyne. Have never had a complaint on this tent for leaking floors. An all round great tent, roomy, airy and very easy to construct.
