Sometimes the best part of going on a camping trip is turning off your phone, burrowing down in your blankets and having a good old sleep in. However, you can’t do that if you’re woken up at the crack of dawn by the sun shining into your eyes. Luckily Oztrail have thought of a way to get around this with their Sportiva range.
The bedrooms on the Sportiva 9 use a light blocking, dark coloured inner which helps to reduce the amount of light that comes into your tent for easier mornings. You can breeze in and out of the Sportiva with ease, as the generous head height of the tent means no stooping. There is also No-See-Um mesh on all the windows and doors to stop creepy crawlies and allow for fresh air to circulate.
The doors feature both a mesh and solid zippered panels, so you can adjust your shelter depending on what the weather is like. On a windy night, you won’t be woken up by the sound of jangling zips as these ones are made with flexible cord pull tabs – perfect for light sleepers. The floor is made from durable bucket design PE floor will keep you dry from the ground up, and the storm flaps, taped seams and Silver Coated UVTex waterproof fly will keep tent dry. If you’re in need of some shade, the awnings on each side of the tent will allow you some protection when the weather is sunny.
I cannot find any reviews of this model anywhere, is it new? I am looking for a roomy, comfortable tent for one person to stay in for 2 for three weeks at a time, not too bulky to carry in the car and possible for one person to pitch.
There is no windproof rating for tents like this so it's easiest to think about aerodynamics. Tents with many flat sides and angles tend to catch the wind more than domed and curved frame tents so in this sense, the Sportiva would be easily caught in any gusts, however, the Duraplus Fibreglass/steel frame is pretty durable.
In regards to tent recommendations, I would suggest giving our friendly team a call (1300 914 007) to discuss your options as it's often easier to talk through your requirements to find the best thing for you.
Does this tent come with any awning poles?
2x Awning Poles for the Oztrail Sportiva 8 are included.
Could you please let me know if the current specification on the website are correct for this tent, because on the manufacturer website it says that the tent weights 17.7kg against 20.3kg on your website. And also what is the length of warranty? Is it 2 year as per oztrail website or 1 year as it is specified on your website?
We've made a mistake here. Our apologies. The weight and warranty are per Oztrail's website - 17.7kg and 2 years. We'll look to correct our website this morning.
We currently have a tent with framework that is pre attached to the tent. It has a central hub and goes up in less than 10 minutes. I am interested to know if this tent is also an "instant up" tent.
The Oztrail Sportiva 8 Dome Tent uses fibreglass and steel poles that need to be connected and then attached. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit into the 'instant up' category.
