Lightweight shelter, extra shade or windbreak the OZtrail Hiker Fly is a simple shelter with a tonne of uses.
Made of durable and UV resistant UVTex fabric with a catenary cut between eyelets to ensure a tight and flap free pitch every time.
Brass eyelets feature halfway along to facilitate pole spigots and three webbing loops on each end so pitching options are aplenty.
Brought this for shade/undercover shelter for when I go camping. A little tricky to set up on your own, any tips feel free to comment. Very compact. I brought two adjustable poles. Great product!
I was looking for a compact shade to fit in my small car with other camping gear, this shade worked well for us .
Also I found and ordered this hiker fly just 3 days before camping, it arrivedvthe day before I left.
Thank you so much for the great service.
I am very pleased with this. It is very good in the wind and rain. Will buy again
Had this over my double swag. Stops you getting rained on when getting out of the swag in the morning. Handles the wind without drama. Fits nicely in the swag bag. Thanks Snowys for the incredibly fast delivery to Tas.
received this literally the day after i ordered it and i didnt order till like 3-4 in the arvo so thanks for sorting it out so quickly Snowys! bought a few things now and can't fault the service!
this thing packs up nice and small. for the compact size it provides a good shaded area which is well worth the added size/weight
that being said its super light, and could go even lighter with some alloy pegs like the sea to summit ones!
guy lines all came attached and ready to rock n roll so setting up was a breeze. i used two awning poles but will be interested to see how hiking poles go with it (when i get some).
I bought this to team up with a Zempire Atom from snowys as well. it works perfectly with a camping mat to create a great little camping spot. Cheers guys.
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.
Great service, came very quickly & the product did the job without any complications
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.
Good for bike camping. Well priced and good quality.
can you do a video of how you manage to set this up on your own?
I'll pass this request on to our videographer for you, no promises but we'll see what we can do. It sounds perfect because there's normally only one of us free to shoot the videos!
I intend to replace the pegs with better, lighter pegs.
We're currently out of stock of the OZtrail Hiker Fly, so I gave OZtrail a buzz to see if they could help me out. Murphy's Law, they're also out of stock but they did say that at an estimate, the pegs would weigh around the 100g mark. Sorry that I couldn't be any more detailed than that.
It's a great idea to use the Oztrail Hiker Fly over the top of your Malamoo Tent. It will add some extra protection from the sun and rain for you.
Would this be suitable to use over the OZtrail festival 2 tent. If so which poles would you recommend? Thanks
You'll have no issues at all using the Oztrail Hiker Fly over the top of your Oztrail Festival 2 Tent. As for which poles you should use. I would probably recommend you go for the Oztent Alloy Poles.
this might be a stupid question but... my tarp came with a guy line like right in the middle of the fly on the outside. so smack bang in the middle of your two poles. where are you supposed to attach this to? only thing i can think of would be like up over a tree branch or something?
Not a stupid question at all mate! You're bang on the money too, the Oztrail Hiker Fly tends to sag in the middle a little, so the guy rope in the middle can be used to hang over a branch or similar to keep it from sagging.
Hi there, im looking at getting a black wolf ul mantis; could this double as a ground sheet? Thanks 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.
Hi there, does the specified weight include guy lines and pegs (i.e. full weight required to use the fly)? Thanks.
Hi again... what poles do you have that are suitable for packing into a 50l+ backpack for trekking... thanks.
Hi, can you recommend which poles to buy with this? Thanks
Do you have this item in stock, and what distance are the eyelets apart, thank you.
