With the reliability and durability of the time tested RV tents, the Oztent Jet Tent F25 brings another level of innovation and functionality to the Oztent Touring Tent range.
An integrated quick pitch frame features an auto lock/release mechanism and all alloy central hub and knuckles. The tent is double stitched and seam sealed waterproof cotton canvas with an extra large awning and guy ropes attached, which means you can use the Jet Tent without the included polyester fly sheet in mild conditions.
A heavy duty PVC bucket floor instils confidence when using furniture inside the tent, while an extra large door, roof vent and windows all round provide excellent ventilation and bug protection with no-see-um mesh. The Oztent Jet Tent brings touring tents into the next generation.
What - the Jet Tent is a tough, well-made tent, with quality materials and features; enough room for two with stretchers and gear! Why - we wanted a touring tent that was easy to put up and take down, could fit inside a 4wd, but not compromise on the frame strength or canvas when taking on the weather - this is a winner! How - unpacks easily and is a fairly straightforward set up. Take your time putting this tent up a couple of times in order to get to know the way it likes to be set up - it has a few nuances that make a lot of sense once you get used to them. After a few goes, I found pegging out first simplified the set-up and was quicker overall, you just can't maneuver it around without taking out the pegs! I like - the thought that has gone into this product, like those windows with zippered options for ventilation in the rain, a great ventilation panel in the roof, guys ropes on the tent body and the fly, the awning is not attached to the fly, the options of walls and front panel for the awning (the space it creates is a huge bonus!) Even having the doorway in the centre of the tent's front panel is smart thinking, so no-one gets disturbed in their sleep - other quick set-up tents have it to the side, makes getting in and out difficult with someone sleeping in front of the zip. Packing up - pull the 'rip-cord' and down it comes, such a quick pack up. Downside - the rear window is a compromise in wet weather, for the sake of ventilation. I found it to be not nearly as usable as the excellent side ones in inclement weather, and I am a bit suspect of its construction. I'll be keeping an eye on it in heavy rain. Tip - the tent is no flyweight as a complete package, but you can make it easier by removing the pegs and awning poles and packing them separately. I bought the front awning panels, and keep all pegs and poles together in separate bags. It makes packing and handling all the items so much easier. This is a smart, durable and good-looking tent. I think it is an improvement on the otherwise fine equivalent Black-Wolf offering, with a superior range of options.
Fantastic write-up, thanks Rohan! Laine :)
We found the tent rugged and well made and Snowys service was excellent. We had occasion to advise of a fault in a side panel we discovered 3 months after purchase and Snowys replaced it without question. Nice to get that response and quick replacement. The frame was a little tricky to set up and break down but practice will get us there. The suggestion from an earlier reviewer to peg the floor down last is a good one. Otherwise it is well made and has withstood some heavy showers. It is heavier than I expected and takes a bit of manoevering to get back in the bag and up into our 4 wheel drive so be prepared to use some muscle. Suggest for future customers and for ease of set up that the instructions be rewritten with more pictures or diagrams.
Needed to get this tent with very short notice and Snowys delivered without fail. The F25 was exactly what I wanted. We arrived at camp at night and to top things off bad weather was on its way. The heavens opened up but the tent did its job!
Would thoroughly recommend this product to anyone who is requiring a quick setup and pull down situation. Very simple.
Putting the tent back into its travel bag can be a mission but its something that can be overcome with practical experience over time.
If you plan on going camping even when the weather isn't great, this is the tent to do it in. Used it last weekend in winds above 40km/h with showers and had no problems. Wouldn't have wanted to be in any other tent.
Love the F25 and found that setting up the external frame BEFORE pegging down the floor works better for us. The instructions suggest you do the opposite.
Haven't had a chance to use the side walls and front panel for the awning yet.
What do you use to join 2 jet tents.
I've just spoken with Oztent and while there is no specific design to achieve what you're after, it is possible to use an Oztent RV5 awning connector to join two Jet Tent F-25. There would be some slight overhang from the connector (which is 10cm longer) and possible water pooling at the join due to the awning design.
Thanks for the detailed information (should have been details in my previous post, not "detauks", silly typo). Just one more, is it the grey or khaki version that you're selling, I believe the grey is the newer one...
Hello, I have several questions. Are you selling the grey or the khaki version of this tent. Do you have it in stock currently? You mentioned that the windows can not be opened from the inside, however some other websites indicate the tent has a large window at the back wall, without gussets, with a canvas flap that can be unzipped from the insided, uncovering a fixed mesh panel. Can you confirm this is the case? Finally, where is it made? Thanks :)
Can the windows be opened from the inside?
What are the water head rating of the tent, the floor and the fly?
