It’s a swag, on a stretcher, it’s the Oztent Jet Tent Bunker. The simplicity of a swag combined with the luxury of a camp stretcher creates a single person shelter that provides a good night sleep on any terrain.
Cosy when the weather turns bad, the steel frame keeps you off the cold ground, and a 100% waterproof rip-stop poly-cotton canvas fly keeps you reliably dry. During summer, the elevated bed allows all round ventilation, no-see-um mesh provides insect protection, and fold up side flaps on the fly enable plenty of ventilation.
The heavy duty waterproof base features sewn in padding for comfort and warmth, and thanks to four interior organiser pockets and the expandable vestibule, you can keep all your essentials handy and stay in bed all day!
Really pleased with the product so far. Only had 2 trips in it but it is comfy and spacious. Only downside and it's very minor. Would recommend either a thin inflatable mattress or something to help shield from the cold though the bed base.
Our son is very pleased. Spent the first night on it in the loungeroom.
Used for the first time last night, got to my camp site just as it got dark, was set up ready to use in 3 minutes, amazing!
Camped along the ocean so was quite windy, but nice and warm inside, with a small sepf inflatable mattress.
THIS swag is simply just the best thing ever. Comfortable. Easy to assemble. Convenient. Roomy. Fits easily inside the 4x4, doesnt take up much room, don't need to strap it on the roof rack. In fact so easy to put up that while I just "popped" mine up, within minutes was fully ready to use, my friends were still assembling their swags and couldn't believe how quick mine was, with comments like "your kidding, you're done already????" More time to kick back and crack a beer. I've got a few oztents (which I love as well) that I use when the big kids want to camp, but I know I will be using the jet tent bunker for myself from now on. I didn't use the fly on this trip, didn't need it, like to look at the stars. Best camping investment I ever made. HIGHLY recommend this swag.
Ripping review Anne, thank you!
Best swag I have ever used, period, a top quality bit of gear.
I have had the opportunity to use mine a few times, and I found it to be great. So much better than a swag! I like that it can be accessed from both sides or the end. Could be used without a mattress, but I did put a self inflating in and found it to be very comfortable. Packs up quickly (faster even than my swag), though I do be sure to take care that the netting doesnt get caught in the joins. No rain to test how waterproof, but so far so good!
THE best bit of camping gear ever. Easy to put up and pack away. Used it last weekend without fly on as weather was hot - went to sleep looking at the moon but totally protected from bugs.
Only slept in it once so far and wasn't as happy as I thought I would be. I slept very cold as there is no way of keeping out the air. I have bought a new sleeping bag so hoping that helps. Set up and pull down its awesome and comfort wise it is excellent. I am a bit worried about using it in the winter months down here in Tas.
Sorry to hear you've had a cold sleep Jason. The mattress, whilst padded, provides comfort but not a massive amount of insulation and you'll most likely be getting cold from underneath. The best way to use your bunker in the coooler months is to add an extra mattress inside the shelter. A basic foam mattress will do, or a self inflating mat will make it pretty luxurious. The Oztrail Camp Mat Jumbo is the perfect fit. I hope this helps, Ben.
Yes the hook can get caught up and if you don't tuck in the mesh when packing, it can catch in the frame causing damage. Take care during this process. If it is going to be cold you want an extra camp mattress in it to stop the cold coming up. However, I was caught in a very heavy rain in the alpine ranges near Canberra, worst I have ever camped in, and this cot is gold. It rained so hard the water was running off and flowing down the hill. Had not used before. Its brilliant and quick to set up
G'day Andrew, thank you for taking the time to write such a helpful review. Laine
I want to use the bunker stretcher for overnight stops, but add the tent when staying multiple nights.
Despite being made by the same company, these two products are not designed to be joined together sorry, if you had both items then they would be used as completely independent shelters.
Hi, would the Exped Megamat 10 LXW Camp Mat fit inside this? The specs say it will but best to ask. Also, would you consider it overkill or unsuitable for use on a stretcher base?
We've tried this ourselves before with the display models, and the Megamat 10 LXW will definitely fit inside the Oztent Jet Bunker Stretcher.
As for whether it can be used on a stretcher, I would say that it probably won't be very stable (especially if the ground was on a slight slope) so we probably wouldn't recommend it.
will my black wolf mega deluxe mattress fit in? looking at the dimensions it appears to fit. also you can get into sleeping area from the side?
I have personally tried this before, and I found that the Black Wolf Mega Deluxe Camp Mat fits perfectly in the Oztent Jet Bunker Stretcher. And as for entry, there is a door on either side, and one at the top end of the Jet Bunker.
Just wondering if a mattress is required for comfort? also is there room to keep bedding in the bunker like with a swag?
From having a feel of the inside of the bottom of the Jet Bunker in store, it does have a soft surface. If you were using a very thick and cushiony sleeping bag you might be able to get away with no mattress - but for comfort and insulation purposes you're best off using a camp mat inside this stretcher.
The maximum internal height of this stretcher is about 100cm at the entrance, and it tapers down towards the end - so you'll have plenty of room for a mat, pillow and other bits and bobs you want to keep near you while you sleep.
Love this bed, easy to setup comfy but one small problem condensation. I camped out last weekend and woke to find a heavy dew. Packed up my self inflating mattress and sleeping bag and left the bunker to dry. Weather wasn't helping and it took ages. When I finally removed the fly i noticed 2 large patches of condensation one at each end.. How do you avoid condensation with theses tents?
Does a fly come with this or is it extra. Is there freight to Devonport Tasmania Thanks
