Do you ever find that your nose and feet are poking against the slope of most small hiking tents? OZtrail have found a way to optimise space by adding posts to each end of the tent - this raises each end of the tent, preventing a harsh slope and giving you more head and feet space. The single east-west pole design which means less fussing around fixing your shelter up, and more time for resting or taking in the spectacular views – which is always a good thing.
This tent will be a spacious sleep for one, or a
Gear lofts are a great way to keep your valuables safe and out of the way – which is why OZtrail have added a detachable one with this tent. If you love to go hiking and bushwalking in balmy summer weather - but you can’t stand feeling too restricted – the OZtrail Razorback will give you that extra head and foot height without the added weight.
This tent has plastic buckles to connect the sides of the fly to the side extensions of the inner. However, when I received my tent, the buckle on one side of the fly was missing and replaced by loops for pegs. After advising Snowys, they sent me a 'Field Repair Kit', with buckles which could be fitted with a screw, so no sewing was required. These are now working well. The tent is adequate inside and would fit 2 people, with plenty of room in the vestibules for a pack each side. Initially I had a problem that the inner roof was too low over my face, since I had used the same pegs on the ends for the inner and the fly. I then re-erected the tent using separate pegs for the inner and making sure it was pulled very tight. the inner was then high enough so as not to touch my face. Since the floor is a bit flimsy, I also have a sheet of plastic which I lay under the floor to protect it against sharp objects (rocks, etc) on the ground. Overall, I am now happy with this tent.
Are these on run out? Why such a big discount? Will I be able to get replacement poles if needed?
We always try to have the lowest prices on everything we stock, so we always reduce as much as possible. The Razorback Hiking Tent is an ongoing product for Oztrail, so you will be able to get some replacement poles if you need them.
Do you stock footprints for this tent, or a tent or similar dimensions? Thanks.
Oztrail doesn't produce a specific footprint for the Oztrail Razorback Hiking Tent. However, you could consider the Zempire Zeus footprint which is a slightly larger size and quite affordable. You can view this footprint here.
Do you sell a footprint for this tent? Thanks
How does this compare with the zempire 2p tent?
Really good question. And I'm going to come out and be bold and say, the Zempire Zeus (2P) is a better tent in pretty much every way. It's more spacious, the fly and floor are more durable and just nicer, the components are better, and they weigh almost the same - the Zeus is 2.8kg and the Razorback is 2.4kg. Why would you buy a Razorback over a Zeus? The price would be my only consideration. Hope that helps with your decision. Cheers, Paul
