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!
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
Bought 2 of them, have used about 4 times now.....brilliant idea.Easy to use, Yes its a bit bulky, but we are going for comfort here. Used Black Wolf Mega Deluxe self inflating mattress..OMG better than bed at home.
It's pretty heavy at 15kg compared to a swag but it's not much larger and packs well (duffle shaped). I dropped from a 10cm Black Wolf down to a 4cm mattress but was still much more comfortable than my swag. Very warm and fast to set up. I put a hole in the fly when setting it up to dry after my first trip- the hooks from the fly catch the mesh very easily. A bit of heat shrink on the end of each hook should stop that happening again. Took it on an overnight canoeing trip and loved it.
The perfect companion for solo outings. It's super quick and easy to set-up and incredibly comfortable. Add a good self-inflating mattress and you won't find a better night's sleep. A bit bulky but very much worth it.
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
