For balmy nights in humid conditions where you’re carrying minimal gear – the Oztrail Mozzie Dome II 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 shelter is perfect for the travelling couple, or lone wolf who likes a bit more room.
If you’d like to turn this shelter into an all-weather tent, you can just add the additional compatible fly to your set up. For a comfortable night’s sleep, the Oztrail Mozzie Dome II is the way to go on your next trip to the tropics.
The poles let this tent down. They are heavy fiber glass poles which are easily broken. Replacement poles cost the same amount as another tent, meaning once you break a pole you need to throw away the whole tent and buy a new one.
These are certainly made to be an affordable mesh tent Danyel, but we've not had any ongoing issues with the poles. As for the price of replacement poles, you only need to replace the broken pole section, not the entire pole. There are kits available in which there are four replacement sections that you can cut to length. They are not overly expensive, check them out here. If you want better quality fibreglass, you can upgrade to the Duraplus pole sections. ~ Ben
I too am disappointed that the poles aren't metal - otherwise good, servicable if not particularly light weight tent.
For the price it is good value. However, I would pay more for aluminium poles rather then the heavy fiberglass poles used. And the zippers do not close fully at the zipper ends, which is a problem in heavily infested sandfly regions as they get in. I would pay more for YKK Zippers that close fully rather than these cheap ones. But overall, it's great in a hot climate and I can deal with the above issues through modifications.
Have had my mozzie dome for years now and am so very impressed with it.. Still. I use it for hiking and bike touring. With the fly it is a fantastic hike tent option. Kept surprisingly bone dry during storms and big downpours. This impressed me the most.
In this model
The Oztrail Mozzie Dome II Tent is designed primarily as a dry, warm weather tent. Oztrail do say that the floor of this tent is waterproof but we'd suggest that this waterproofing is relatively minimal and if the ground was saturated, then you might still have a few issues. If the ground is only damp though, you should be fine.
