Good product

Used this on a recent week-long hike. Pitched over a two person hiking tent as an awning, it worked extremely well. Held off very heavy rain without a problem and was sound in the wind too. We'd have been confined to the bloody tent for hours without it. It made our hike, this bit of kit!

Cheap but light and highly flexible in terms of its usage. I'd recommend it.

Top quality

Light, compact, good quality. Water-repellent - held off heavy alpine rain. The curved sides made a tight tarp structure with only two poles + guy ropes. Decent steel pegs included. Also has flexible usage - worked well as a cover between a canvas single-pole tent and a gazebo.

Great tarp at a good price from snowys only minor complaint is the grommets are slightly too small to take the tip of an average walking pole making the setup less stable, other than that great stuff guys, how about a 3*3 square version?

Versatile pitching

An excellent value fly that can be pitched with different combinations of poles and angles. Pitches nice and taught and the perfect size for a double swag too.

Could this double as a ground sheet?1 answer

Hi there, im looking at getting a black wolf ul mantis; could this double as a ground sheet? Thanks Glen

- Morphett Vale(1 year ago)

G'day Glen, 

You could use the Oztrail Hiker Fly as a lightweight groundsheet, as it will provide a bit of moisture protection and would be a good option if you need to keep the weight down in your pack. 

Just bear in mind that it's not going to be as effective as a heavy duty plastic or mesh, so you might want to be extra careful when clearing the ground under your tent from any debris.

Weight1 answer

Hi there, does the specified weight include guy lines and pegs (i.e. full weight required to use the fly)? Thanks.

- NSW(1 year ago)
G'day Connor - It's actually a bit lighter than what we have in the specifications (I'll update them too) at only 780g, including guy ropes and pegs. You can really shed some weight off if you buy some lightweight pegs such as the Sea to Summit Ground Control pegs. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

Iis this water proof please?1 answer

- MITCHELL PARK, SA(1 year ago)
G'day John - It is waterproof. However, I am not sure of the exact waterhead rating of the material. I can try and find out for you if you wish? Not being the most lightweight hiking tarp on the market suggests that it is probably on the more durable and waterproof side. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

Why is this advertised as 3.5 x 2.5 when it measures 3.4metres x 2.1metres. That's a big difference.1 answer

- BLAIR ATHOL, SA(1 year ago)
Good question Fred. I'm not sure if we made a typo or Oztrail made a sneaky update and just didn't let us know, but we had an error in our specs. Oztrail advertise the product as 3.5 x 2.1m which is still slightly different than your measurements. I apologise for the error, please let us know if this is not going to suit your needs, make sure you mention this enquiry if you do call us. 1300 914 007.

Any poles suitable for backpack1 answer

Hi again... what poles do you have that are suitable for packing into a 50l+ backpack for trekking... thanks.

- BLACKBURN, VIC(2 years ago)
We don't have any poles specifically suited for hiking/trekking, generally a fly used in this instance would be pitched using trekking poles for support. Other alternatives are to use sticks or tied to trees. Using the fly in this manner negates the need to carry extra poles which saves on packing space and weight.

Recommended poles1 answer

Hi, can you recommend which poles to buy with this? Thanks

- BLACKBURN, VIC(2 years ago)
Any pole with a spigot or spike will suit the Hiker Fly David. It has standard brass eyelets to accommodate the spigot, the main choice is really down to the height at which you want the fly to sit. Check out product codes 43509 and 21931 by looking them up in the search bar of our website.

Fly1 answer

Do you have this item in stock, and what distance are the eyelets apart, thank you.

- BLUE HAVEN, NSW(2 years ago)
Hi Chris, there are two brass eyelets exactly half way down the long edge at the 175cm point. There are also two webbing loops stitched exactly half way along the short edge at the 125cm point. Each of the four corners also has a webbing loop stitched in. There are 8 guy ropes provided (6 already attached) there are also 6 steel pegs included (4mm diameter x 165mm long) I hope this helps!
