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 answers

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

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 answers

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

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 answers

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 answers

- BLAIR ATHOL, SA(11 months 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 answers

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

- BLACKBURN, VIC(1 year 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 answers

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

- BLACKBURN, VIC(1 year 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.

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

- BLUE HAVEN, NSW(1 year 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!
