Great purchase

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.

Surprisingly robust

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.

easy fast simple

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).

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.

Oztrail hiker fly tent

Great service, came very quickly & the product did the job without any complications

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.

Setting up one person1 answer

can you do a video of how you manage to set this up on your own?

- Busselton(1 month ago)

G'day Jade,

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!

What's the weight without the pegs? 1 answer

I intend to replace the pegs with better, lighter pegs.

- Griffith ACT(1 month ago)

G'day Tim,

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.

I would like to use this hiker fly on top of a Malamoo 3 tent? I wonder if it's a good idea?1 answer

I would like to use this hiker fly on top of a Malamoo 3 tent? I wonder if it's a good idea?

- Chipping Norton, NSW(3 months ago)

G'day William,

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.

Festival tent1 answer

Would this be suitable to use over the OZtrail festival 2 tent. If so which poles would you recommend? Thanks

- Loxton (8 months ago)

G'day Beate,

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.

extra guy line1 answer

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?

- Sutherland(8 months ago)

G'day Kieran,

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.

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. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Weight1 answer

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

- NSW(2 years 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(2 years 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(3 years 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(3 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.
- Snowys(3 years ago)

Recommended poles1 answer

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

- BLACKBURN, VIC(3 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(3 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!
