Great value

published

For a relatively cheap tent this has been great. We used this it for 6 years, and it held up well to being jumped on by toddlers, fallen on by drunkards, heavy rain, crazy wind, dusty festivals, hot cold, you name it. Fantastic for overnighters as its easy to set up, but comes into its own for longer trips and week long events. We got this so we would be able to have a porta cot in it while we travelled the east coast, and it was great for that. In the end the zips all went otherwise I'd still be using it. Just ordered a new one, this time without the back extension as the kids are now (thank god!) in one of their own.

Comfortable good option

published

Quite light and easy to transport. Provided adequate protection from the elements. Good value for the price will be the perfect companion for a few days in the great outdoors. Only slight issue is material could be sturdier to hold up in windy conditions but overall definitely recommended for camping trips

An expensive purchase

published

i used this tent quite alot. I followed the instructions on how to condition the Material but still it leaked after heavy downpour and storm. After cleaning and drying it out i used it again and it leaked after another downpour. This time i had to wait until the rain stopped to dry it out but noticed something was a little smelly. My camp matteress had gotten wet and mould appeared under the matteress and around the joints on the floor of the tent. I took both back to where i purchased them at BCF and they were happy to replace them under warranty however after a short time again out camping the same thing happened to the tent. It leaked and leaked so i threw it away after conditioning this one too.

Fantastic Tent

published

We have owned many tents from dome tents to 2 room canvas tents. This is by far the best for a 3 day weekend for a family of four. It doesn't leak. It survives wild wind and storms. It sets up in less than 10 minutes. You can stand up inside it. We have owned ours for well over 8 years and its as good as new.
The only thing to be aware of is its size when packed down. Its not the smallest or the lightest but its certainly durable and sturdy..


Pole broke on second use.

published

Great tent. Have not used in the rain yet, but on only the second use, the wing nut on the pole snapped. Same happened on our other, more expensive tent, but, as it has a hole throught the roof, we just use a extendable tent pole. This one hasn't. It has a rubber stopper top and bottom, so we will have to buy a replacement pole.

Spacious and simple design Tent

published

I bought this tent from BCF for $300.
I have taken it out only once with no issues. It is very easy to set up and I find it very spacious as I am used to the small dome (crawl in) type of tents so this one is a nice change.
I have heard some stories that the canvas leaks and that it should be 'watered' a couple of times before heading out which i did. There is also some kind of inexpensive fluid that can be sprayed over the canvas to further facilitate the water resistant properties.

I have still not had it in any major rainstorms so i cannot verify its water resisting abilities but so far, the tent is a-OK.

I am giving it 4/5 stars purely because of the lack of use in the rain.

I love this tent! Easy to erect and dismantle for 1 person.

I used my tent last April travelling from Eden to Cairns and back, it is totally waterproof, plenty of space and head room. I hosed it as per instructions, no water came inside ever. I even weathered some torrential rain preceding the cyclone which chased me down the coast on the way home. Plenty of space for beds, tables etc. Also electrical cord flaps and hooks for lights were really handy. I was 66 years old at the time and found the 10.5kg weight not a problem to carry. Love it

Top Tent

If the front door is opened during rain water comes in. Solved this problem by putting front part of the tent under a 3x3 metre pergola which covers the front third of the tent and leaves 1.5 metres of shelter in front of the tent as well. Perfect travelling tent.

great touring tent for couples

published

Easy and fast to put up, good quality, never leaked. Would recommend to friends and family. Would not Personally recommend for a family for extended stay. Great touring tent! Got two kids now and looking to upgrade. Only negative is the bag which toe at the seams. Most Oztrail products are pretty good
quality, easy and fast to put up
carry bag a bit flimsy


Fantastic

published

We have had ours for a couple of about six years, we are really happy with it. It is So easy to erect, it can even be erected by one person. We have never ever been wet or cold and we have been through some terrible storms. Will definitely get another when this needs to be replaced.
Easy to erect, warm, dry.
Where can I get a replacement carry bag?

Hopeless in heavy rain

published

This is a good tent if it doesn't rain - but when it does, wind can drive the rain under the window flaps, and water can come through the roof too. I ended up throwing it away after waking up inside the tent with water pouring down. It must have failed at the seams. The tent had been well looked after and it had been showering for several days before disaster struck. So if it can leak like that - I reckon it's a dud
Quick and easy to erect.
Not good in wet conditions. Leaked.

Have to agree on leaking. Despite all care and attention before use, mildew. Yes dry etc. used once, love the tent but too much stuffing about and now too nervous to use it so I turfed it.
