Leave the noise and smells of the city behind and enjoy a night out under the stars with the Oztrail Starlight Tent. It’s designed to be set up by just one person, so if you’re travelling solo you’ll be able to set up this east-west pole system by yourself in no time. The O-Shaped door makes access fairly easy, and the fly has heat taped seams and a great waterhead rating to keep you dry in adverse weather.

You’ll get the best performance from this tent in topical or warm conditions as its light construction and breathable fabric will give you plenty of airflow. We all know that insects thrive in summery and warm conditions, but the No-See-Um mesh on the windows will keep them from sneaking in.

When you’ve got all your gear stuffed into an unfamiliar space it’s easy to lose track of your valuables. It’s a good thing then that the Starlight comes with a loft gear storage pouch that can be hung across the width of your tent – so you can have your phone, GPS and keys safe and out of the way of any late-night blunders. The Starlight is small, easy to erect, and lightweight – which makes it a great place to start if you’re new to hiking.

The coffin

Our kids call this tent "the coffin" as its so small and tight. The floor plan pic is not right - the widest internal width is 1.2m, not the foot of the tent. The sloping door faces up so if its raining, it all goes in and the vestibule is not large enough to put a pack in. The fly is designed to sit on the foot end of the inner (no pole down there) so has wicking problems. 2 people is a real squeeze. Not very sturdy, but you get what you pay for!

I love the view

I like this little tent, esp. with the view of the stars from where you lie. It is pretty tight with my pack in it, but sure meets my minimal size and weight needs. super easy to put up.
Coped okay with light showers, haven't tested it in a rainstorm yet though!

Ok tent. But floor is disappointing

Setup was ok. Compact carry size.
Pegs are quite strong.
A few disappointments are as follows.
Floor seems exceptionally thin. Have my doubts that it withstand any ground water at all.
Claim is for 3 season, but description of conditions doesn't match that. Zips look a little week and may not stand up to any stress.
I'm short (165cm) and when laying on my back, my toes hit the roof.
Would not sleep 2 in this tent. Barely any extra storage area. Storing my package will be tight.
Looking for a groundsheet which will offset the lightness.
Overall, I'm a little disappointed.
I guess, youget what you pay for, although, I feel I could have done better.

Comparing to the Oztrail Nomad 2.1 answer

Thanks for answering my earlier question. Now I was wondering which tent you'd recommend between this one and the Oztrail Nomad 2 Hiking tent. I'm looking for something to take with me on my motorcycle trip, and something that can provide good all season protection.

G'day Arik,

The Oztrail Starlight Hiking Tent has a Ripstop Polyester which is a slight upgrade on the Nomad's. It's also lighter and has a better Waterhead rating. The one advantage of the Nomad is that it has a 2 year warranty.

Will this tent stand up on it's own without having to get pegged down? 1 answer

Will this tent stand up on it's own without having to get pegged down?

- yallamibe(4 months ago)

G'day Arik,

Unfortunately the Oztrail Starlight Hiking Tent is not freestanding, so you will need to use pegs to get it standing upright.

What does the tent weigh without the fly?1 answer

I intend to use the tent in the NT in the dry season - don't need the fly there.

- Kirribilli(9 months ago)

G'day Marilyn,

I've just taken one of the Oztrail Starlight Hiking Tents to the scales in the warehouse which are accurate to about 5% and it showed that the tent without the fly is about 1.4kg.

Does this tent come with pegs? 1 answer

Just bought the tent, don't want to find out at the last minute :)

G'day Nick, 

I've just checked this, and I've found that the Oztrail Starlight Hiking Tent does come with pegs included.

Confirm weight of tent1 answer

Can you confirm the tents weight. Spec sheets says 1.6kg, however other brochures says 1.9kg.

- Melbourne (1 year ago)

G'day Ian, 

I've just weighed the Starlight in the warehouse, and including the box and packaging it comes up to 2kg. But, once you remove the packaging weight, the tent should still be 1.6kg on its own.

Pro Hiker 2 vs Oztrail1 answer

Hello, Which one would you recommend, this one or the Pro Hiker 2 tent ? And why ?

- melbourne(2 years ago)

G'day Julian,

The Starlight is a very new model to us, and so we don’t have any feedback on how it performs but I can tell you it is a very compact and lightweight tent that is ideal for warmer climates.

The Companion Pro Hiker two is a tent that we‘ve carried for a while now and is a firm favourite amongst the staff and our customers who have used it.

If you are concerned about weight and size – this tent isn’t the smallest or lightest hiking tent but we find it to be really well made, durable and at a very good price considering how high the quality is. I’d say it will also hold up better in rainy conditions too as it has a 3000mm waterhead rated fly.

So purely based on the good feedback on this tent, I would recommend the Pro Hiker 2.
