The Oztent Screen House Hex pitches just as easily as its square sibling, but provides much more space making it perfect for an outback dinner party.
Made with flexible fiberglass poles terminated in ultra tough mechanisms, the Oztent Screen House Hex is pitched by simply inverting the walls, and putting two flexible upright poles in place to create a sturdy and roomy enclosure with six mesh sides and a single zippered entrance.
With pack up being just as easy as it is to pitch, the Oztent Screen House Hex has a seam sealed waterproof roof, optional side walls, and comes backed with a 2 year warranty.
best piece of camping gear i've had,would like to see an awning that zips down for privacy and opens up for shelter getting in and out,or attachment to oztent
Great piece of gear. Well made (bag aside*) and very easy to put up.
Take note of Scott - Canberra (Feb 04 2017) and Jason - Perth (May 08 2016) reviews: it is very easy to put up inside out, I'm glad I read their reviews!
Had it up during strong winds and was sturdy. I haven't had it up in rain yet.
*Zipper on bag was faulty - Snowy's organised a replacement bag from Oztent delivered within a couple of days, FOC.
Did the research, settled on the Oztent, and its been a great purchase. Easier to put up than put away, and putting away is pretty easy. Literally 60 seconds to put up. Only concern is its a fraction dark inside the tent, as the mesh is quite sturdy. Do peg it down in windy conditions, just sayin.
The tent sets up and is put away very easily, however the second time it was used the zip broke, not the most reliable gazebo around.
Thanks for sharing your feedback... but I'm sorry to hear that you're having some troubles with one of the zips. If you have a second, please give us a call (1300 914 007) - we'd like to help fix the issue. Laine :)
I pondered over this screen house for 12 months and finally made the purchase. It was worth every cent! Easy to pop-up and secure, incredible spacious and a quality product. It appears to be quite dark inside from the pictures, but it is not at all. The hex shape creates a huge amount amount of additional space. Very happy customer.
An excellent piece of gear, was great to store food and other gear in out of the weather and a place to escape the flies
Outstanding bit of kit, fine in storms. Problem 1, it is 1.8m long (I'm making a 225mm pvc pipe tube to roof rack it quickly). Problem 2, if you haven't put it up for a while and it gets twisted - STOP. Yes you can put it up inside out with much force, yes it will take 90mins to undo said force (and not a single tear or bend, very impressive)
Another great product from the oztent company. They can do no wrong. Very happy with this product as well as my chairs and tent purchased from oztent. Its huge and goes up and down very quickly.
This goes up in 2 minutes, plus another 5 if you peg and guy rope it. I use it for last minute, fair weather camping for the kids, instead of a tent. Super fast up, well ventilated and very comfortable - so long as you dont care about lack of privacy. very happy with it. Fingers crossed its durable. Pleasure dealing with Snowys BTW.
I have heaps of oztent products, pretty much everything in the range and love it all. This was my latest purchase and couldn't wait to try it out. After erecting it I thought it was very flimsy and it kept folding in on itself. After further inspection I discovered it was inside out so I dropped it to turn it inside out which has resulted in a big tangled mess that is now unusable. No idea how it could even have been put up inside out to start with.
G'day Jason, That's no good, these screen houses are way better when they're not inside-out! Please give us a call (1300 914 007) when you have a second, we'd like to do everything we can to fix the problem.
On the Hex Screen house. How many wall's will I need to buy to enclose it fully? Do you have a wall for the front Door? Does it only have one door way?
The Oztent Screen House Hex has 6 sides and only has one doorway. Unfortunately, you can't completely enclose the Screen House as there is no velcro around the doorway to attach a solid wall (which would block your ability to get in and out as well).
I have a oztrail gazebo and it's not good in the rain cause the water pools in the corners and water comes through the seams of the roof, So dose this gazebo have a better water run off water proofing on the roof, waking up in the middle of the night with the gazebo roof bout to collapse through the frame cause of the weight of the water.
It's hard to say whether the rain will run off any better with the Oztent Screen House Hex. There are often a few variables in play in regards to ground level, set up tension etc. The other thing to consider is that the Screen House is really only designed for mildly bad weather.
What's concerning is that the water shouldn't be pooling on the Oztrail Gazebo. Would you mind shooting an email through to our Warranties Manager, Nick with some photos and he can look into this for you? He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
I've set up my hex and there is a bag with two black fibreglass poles. The packing list says they are "door poles". But the instructions doesn't say what to use them for.
I've just checked with one of the staff who has set up this Screen House before, and they've said that these poles should fit in on either side of the door of this shelter.
If you're having any issues with set up, you can always give us a buzz on 1300 914 007 and one of our customer service staff in the tent department would be happy to talk you through any queries you might have.
Chai, it isn't very clear in the instructions (I struggled on this step as well), however step 4 begins with "Extend the bars inside the Oztent Hex Screen House and secure them in the pockets at the bottom." If you replace the word 'bars' with 'door poles', it makes sense...sort of.
Can you clarify what the contents of the package should be. I have just received mine after a very prompt delivery by yourselves, thanks, but unfortunately the packaging (box) was torn open and the inner bag was partially unzipped. I just want to be sure there is nothing missing, but do not know what should have been in the box/bag? Thanks
Hello Jerry, sorry to hear that your box was not in perfect condition when you received it. The contents of the bag should be as follows:
Doorway Poles x 2
Pegs/Stakes x 5
Guy Ropes x 5
Owners Manual x 1
Carry Bag x 1
If you find anything missing, please let us know and we will get that replaced for you.
I brought one of these about 6 months ago (August) with 4 walls (2 sets) and it does not have any silver screening, on the roof or the walls and can't remember if it was advertised with it or not.. Order number 31796
We have the little brother of this screen house with four walls, there I can say that we just went through heavy rain and storm next to the Dutch North Sea in late winter / early spring and it withstood all challenges extremely well! Just peg it down safely and you will stay safe and dry (with the additional walls, though) - Oztent rocks!
Can you supply the attachable walls to suit the Hex screen house and how much are they? Will you do a deal for the house plus 5 walls? If so I am interested in purchasing from you.
