For balmy nights in humid conditions where you’re carrying minimal gear – the Oztrail Mozzie Dome I could be right up your street.
Constructed from super fine No-See-Um mesh, you’ll be able to snooze under the stars – minus the annoying biting insects. Featuring a durable and lightweight fibreglass cross pole design, with easy access D doors – this cosy shelter is perfect for the solo traveller.
If you’d like to turn this dome into an all-weather tent, you can just add the additional compatible fly to your set up. For an insect-free night’s sleep, the Oztrail Mozzie Dome I is an affordable option for your next trip to the tropics.
Easy to put up and down, and fit back in the bag. Zips slide really well and I was pleased to find the point where the zips meet has a bit of a cover - not big enough to get in the way but hopefully enough to keep persistent bugs out. There is also an inner pocket.
For the price of this tent on sale I was well surprise by the quality of the manufacturing, I added the Fly a little later I now have a complete tent, that manages to fit inside the original tent bag. Probably not the best for super tall people. Whilst not a six hundred dollar hiking tent, I have upgraded to alloy poles and it is small enough and light enough fo and it is small enough and light enough to for my bikepacking adventures
Excellent bit of light weight kit. Dump the poles and tie off on clips where poles x over. Less weight, less head room but works great
excellent - easy to put up and very effective
excellent..had one before that lasted years..this one is s good..
Is this ok to use on top of a stretcher or does it need to be pegged down to hold its shape? Thanks
If your stretcher is the same size (or bigger) than the base of the Oztrail Mozzie Dome I tent, then you'll have no worries with putting it on the stretcher. If the stretcher is smaller though, then it will sag at the ends and lose shape, unfortunately.
I bought this tent and had it shipped within Australia for friends to bring to NZ for me. I am also purchasing aluminium poles to reduce the weight. As the tent is still in Australia, please provide the pole specs I will need for this tent. I think that means diameter, section lengths, and how many lengths. Thanks.
I've just had a look at an Oztrail Mozzie Dome I Tent for you and have the lengths for you. There are 2 x 349cm poles, made up of 9 equal length pieces each. The diameter of those poles is 7.9mm. The third pole is 120cm long and is made up of 3 equal length pieces, this one is 8.5mm in diameter.
Can I scrunch it down into a stuff-it sack without damaging it? Not including the poles of course.
We haven't tried this ourselves, but theoretically yes you could. You would probably want to take care when putting it into a stuff sack though, and roll/fold it instead of scrunching.
Is the floor material waterproof? Cheers
Hi Daniel, The floor of the mozzie dome one is made from uvtex ultra polyester with heavy duty taffeta taped seams. The material feels very similar to the material of the fly you can buy separately which claims to be waterproof. Oztrail make no claim about the floor however given that the material is the same it should stand up to a certain level of water. You may have noticed that the more expensive tents will actually give you a waterhead rating for the material so you know how waterproof it actually is. Hopefully this helps you out.
