The Bunker from Oztent provides the simplicity of a swag, the protection of a tent and the luxury of a camp stretcher.
The heavy-duty steel frame features a cross leg stretcher design which will keep you off the cold ground, while the 100% waterproof rip-stop poly-cotton canvas fly ensures you stay dry when the weather turns bad. During summer, the elevated bed allows for all-round ventilation, while the superfine mesh window panels provide insect protection and can be zipped in and out.
In terms of comfort, the durable PVC coated bed features fully sewn-in padding for extra warmth, and the four interior organiser pockets help you keep your essentials handy while you sleep. If you’re after an all-in-one single person shelter that you can rely on to provide a good night sleep on any terrain, look no further than the Bunker from Oztent.
Just completed a trip across the Simpson Desert and the Jet Tent Bunker Stretcher was fantastic, it was easy to setup and Is nice and strong. The only criticism I have is that one of the eyelets that holds the fly on was missing but that wasn’t a problem. Overall a great product
Slept 2 nights over the weekend, it's a awesome quick set up, Found it a bit heavy for its size, But I was freezing in it, I did have a extra mattress seatosummit insulated thermolite and a -5 sleeping bag, I found the wind comes up from the bottom and through the sides, as the side walls don't go low enough to the ground,
You're right Zach, the walls do sit above the ground a little, which makes for great ventilation in the warm months but can cause the inside of the shelter to be a little cooler in windy weather. Generally, a good mat and sleeping bag will mitigate this, but it looks like you are having issues with a
Love my Oztent bunker!
We purchased the oztrail easy fold stretcher for the kids (as it is significantly cheaper and our kids are too young to be trusted not to trash them). Although we are happy with the Oztrail easy fold for the kids, My husband and I are very happy we spent the extra on ourselves getting the Oztent bunker. Setting the Oztail easy fold stretcher and the Oztent bunker up one after the other and having both side by side there are some small noticeable difference in quality. The major difference for me was the materials breath abilities. We had both set up in full shade late afternoon on a warm day (definitely not hot) the easy fold stretcher was very stuffy and hot inside but the bunker remained very comfortable and not stuffy.
The bunkers are quick and easy to setup and pack up. We have seen a few reviews regarding issues with tearing mesh at packup so we know to take care tucking mesh in away from hinges and have not had any problems.
A mattress is still required inside to help keep warm on cold nights and for a more comfortable sleep, which we also already knew from reading other reviews.
I use it on the beach for fishing trips. Easy to set up. Really comfortable when combined with an Exped hiking mattress. My only gripe is the size of the zippers, they are a bit on the small side.
First time using a stretcher tent. As a female of short stature, I found this extremely easy to put up and take down. I did need to lay it on the side to extend legs out / in before up righting, but this was effortless. The heavens opened up for one of the nights and 2 mornings, but I stayed dry as a bone. Making sure I had the hooks attached to the bottom of legs nice and tight, and pegged out the awning taunt was a must. Held beautifully in the wild weather and my tent canvas was perfect, unlike my husband's who had a cheaper non canvas stretcher which did not cope well with the all night downpour. I layed a single Doona on the bottom as an extra comfort as I like softness, but you could do without it. Extra pockets for items are a bonus inside the tent and plenty of room for clothing at the feet end. Amazing camp out despite 2 days of rain and highly recommend this stretcher tent. Only fault is the lack of wheels for ease of moving as it's heavy for a short female, but that's so minor as I still managed to carry it. Husband had stretcher tent envy!
Bought one for the 16 yo son, he loves it and doesn't get hot or cold in it. He has an Aldi 4wd self inflating mat and is very comfortable.
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!
Hi, what material is the bag made out of and it is waterproof? Just thinking of putting it up on the rack in wet conditions. Don’t want to get to camp and find out the swag is already wet. Thanks
The Bag material on the Oztent Jet Ten Bunker Stretcher is a nylon material that isn't waterproof. Best bet if you're putting it on the roof rack in the wet would be to wrap it in a tarp, or put it inside a waterproof roof rack bag.
Is it the new model that has a fly net that can be completely unzipped and replaced??
The Oztent Jet Tent Bunker Stretcher isn't the new Bunker Stretcher that Oztent have just released. As soon as we get that brand new one in stock, we'll be sure to put them up online right away.
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
