Sportiva 8 Dome Tent

or 4 easy payments of $87.48 with

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 the 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.

  • No-see-um mesh

very good

since I purchased this tent in Jan, I have used twice. One in heavy rain and one just yesterday. Very good tent. Plenty room in side. Even it is harder than instant up one, it is still easy to assemble.

The easiest tent I've ever set up, true vertical walls, heaps of space! The night room helps the kids sleep in a bit too! Best tent for the family by far, and excellent service from snowys too - quick free delivery to FNQ !!!

Suitability1 answer

I've been thinking for a while about purchasing a Sportiva 9 for a birthday Campout I've been doing for a couple of years but I've recently come around to the fact that since I'll only be using it for myself and one friend and after just be using by myself that I should buy the sportiva 8 because it seems to have a quicker set up then the 9 especially if it's a one man job and I think that the 8 would be more space wise for one person especially since it'll only be an odd weekend camp tent but I like the idea of a three room tent what should I get?

G'day Trent,

I agree fully with your thoughts there. I reckon the Oztrail Sportiva 8 would suit you better than the Sportiva 9. It will be easier for you to set up, is lighter and will still have more than enough space for you and your mate when you go together.

Light blocking in Sportiva 8 dome1 answer

Does the Sportiva 8 dome have light blocking - the description means the Sportiva 9??

- Ocean Shores(4 months ago)

G'day Jenny,

I've just sussed this out for you & yes, the Oztrail Sportiva 8 Dome Tent comes with a light-blocking inner which helps keep the sunlight out.

Light blocking inner layer1 answer

Does the light blocking inner cover the whole tent (both rooms) or just part of the tent? Thank you

- Cleveland(7 months ago)

G'day Gloria,

The light blocking inner only covers the bedroom which is the left half of the tent. You can see this in the second image on the webpage (the black fabric).

Light blocking technology question1 answer

Pre order2 answers

Hi. I have pre ordered this tent. I would like to have an idea of when it may be in stock.

- Woolgoolga(8 months ago)

G'day Emma,

I have some good news. Our website was having a bit of a fizz over the weekend and was asking you to pre-order, when in fact we actually have stock available. Your Oztrail Sportiva 8 tent should be dispatched to you today. Sorry for the confusion.

- Snowys(8 months ago)

Totally awesome. That is even better than I hoped for. Hope you have a great Christmas coz ours is gonna rock the great outdoors now!

Sleeping area question1 answer

The sleeping area here says: 220L x 230W cm. For 8 people the area is larger?

- Brisbane(9 months ago)

G'day Tzong,

While the Oztrail Sportiva 8 Dome Tent can be occupied by 8 sleeping people, we recommend the tent for 4 sleeping people plus a living area because of its design and layout. Because of this, we have adapted the sleeping area dimensions. To give you a clearer idea of what I mean, you can refer to the blueprint in the images. Please let me know if this doesn't make sense.

How many doors are there?1 answer

Hi its looks like there are maybe 4 doors? Also is it right that the sportiva range is the top end range of oztrail? Many thanks Ben

- lillian rock(10 months ago)

G'day Beb,

You're right - the Oztrail Sportiva 8 does have 4 doors. I wouldn't say that it's their top end range, simply a different range to other models. It very much depends on the style of tent, rather than the quality of tent with Oztrail.

How wind proof is this tent?1 answer

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.

- Cowra(11 months ago)

G'day Jenny,

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.

Warranty and weight1 answer

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?

- Sydney(12 months ago)

G'day Igor,

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.

- Snowys(12 months ago)

What kind of frame does this tent have?1 answer

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.

- Coral Cove Qld(12 months ago)

G'day Catharina.

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.
