Used this tent once. First night some wind but nothing that has bothered my Kmart tents when camping right next to the ocean.
We were in a caravan park with caravans and two cars on either side and a bush hedge and road blocking from the ocean.
First night the side collapsed and had to be put back together. Next morning went for a walk on the beach, I came back to the tent which had collapsed, the ceiling poles had snapped and pierced and torn the top of the tent.
Hardly any pockets, just two big rooms no way 10p would fit even average size ...

Oz trail tent
We bought this oz trail tent from anaconda mid 2019
Used it once went out for lunch on the 30/12/2019 returned to find tent pole snapped and pierced a hole in tent and fly
Took it back and anaconda said oh sorry no warranty on tent and said here this is a patch kit repair tent
Gave me a new pole and that’s that
Never again will I buy anything from anaconda or oz trail they are a joke
Purchased in June 2019 at Anaconda for $399.00.
Tent Only Survived One Night
We used this tent for the first - and only - time between Christmas and New Year. It was relatively simple to put up and adequate for fine weather, summer camping. We slept one night in the tent and went off to the beach. The weather was hot and windy - approx 40 km per hour. We returned to our campsite to find the tent collapsed, a pole snapped and several large holes in the fly. Our planned week at the beach ended after one day. Not fit for purpose - don’t do it to yourself.
Purchased in November 2019 at Anaconda for $200.00.

Great for the money
We have camped in sun rain and wind with this tent and it has worked. Kept us dry, and cosy. One night at Toowoomba we lost our gazebo in torrential rain and thunderstorms. This tent survived and we had one small leak. Re proofed the area. Fine next outing. It is allegedly an 8 person, but there are only 2 of us and it's good. Pleased with the purchase.

Poor design. Can’t cope with any wind.
Appalling design only for fair weather camping. Tiny pieces of Velcro supposed to keep windows closed. Too upright and flimsy. Not fit for purpose.

I recently purchased this tent when it was half price in an anaconda sale. It is a good size for my family as we can all sleep in the one room and keep the other room for all of our gear and food. It's also a tall tent which I appreciated being a tall bloke . The Problem is it's not waterproof. It rained heavily on our second night of using the tent and water seeped through the stitching where the toggles are sewn into the tent. All around the side of the tent water had either pooled or soaked clothing, bedding, food etc. For a tent not to be w...aterproof is quite frankly embarrassing for Oztrail as this was meant to be a $500 so for that price you expect it to achieve the basics of keeping you dry. Then to reinforce the poor quality of this tent, when we were packing the fly sheet away the bag ripped along a seam! Anyway I am returning the tent to anaconda at the next opportunity for a refund. I will keep you posted on what they say
Ozzy tent not build for Ozzy conditions
Bought this tent in WA summer 2013, built up 4 times before it started to rip. Top part completely disintegrated 2016, 6th time set-up. Looks like the UV hits the tent hard and makes the fabric very brittle over time.
Nice, spacious tent generally, with a 499 AUD price tag too expensive not to last longer. OzTrail or ChiTrail?
Lasted only two short camping trips
Brought this tent and am terribly disappointed
All up lasted only 30 days use , the fly perished and faded then ripped at the seams
Called Oztrail spoke to Mark who was no help at all said he could sell me a new fly or 150 dollars
The quality is that of a cheap tent not a mid range pice tent .
Questions & Answers
Will the fly withstand two months of sun?
Is this tent ok in the wind and rain. If not is there a better one?
We went through a very bad storm at the Christmas two years ago in the tent and survived very well we were all very impressed
Are they quality .and easy to put up
