If you’re the kind of unstoppable outdoorsperson who loves hitting the trail when most people are rugged up inside with a hot drink and a fuzzy blanket– then you’re going to need a suitable tent. The Vertex 3P tent from Oztrail will give you the weather protection and portability that you need to get out on any hiking and backpacking adventure.
The cross pole design provides extra head height and stability which may seem trivial - but it won’t be when the weather turns sour and you’re stuck undercover. The polyester inner is dense enough to retain heat, and keep out a frosty breeze in colder weather. The Vertex’s fly has a high waterproof rating, as well as heat taped seams for extra protection against wind or rain. With enough space for three, you may find that it’s too snug for everyone plus their packs. Luckily the Vertex 3P has twin vestibules so any overflow can be stored under shelter if need be.
And with a door on either side of the tent, you can creep out to answer nature’s call without having to step over other groggy (and cranky) campers. With enough space for two adults, or a cosy three – the lightweight structure and winter-appropriate inner of the Vertex 3 is a great cold weather hiking option.
Well designed,easy set up. Love it
Packs down well, easy to erect
Great quality for the price
How is this tent like in the wind? Say 70+ km an hour gusts. I've flattened 2 tents. One at the devils marbles and one at the 2016 storms at the birdsville races. Going back 4wding in central Aus for 2 months later this year. Would be nice to be prepared this time for the winds out there.
Most tents would struggle to stand up to that sort of wind unless pegged out well with plenty of guy ropes. If you were to put plenty of ropes on your Oztrail Vertex 3 Hiking Tent, then I would be relatively confident of it holding up in 70km/h winds.
I'm trying to choose between the Vertex 3 and Spartan 3 tents. Criteria is to fit myself and 2 kids and sub-$200. The Spartan 3 seems to have an extra 20cm of sleeping width at 180cm compared to 160cm for the Vertex. But the Vertex has more headroom for a 6 foot man to sit in. The Spartan also looks like its a better wet weather performer, but the Vertex looks like it can handle 4 seasons with a solid inner. Can you assist?
Both tents would be a great choice, I measured the height of the head clearance for both and you won't have any issues sitting in either of them (I'm also 6 foot tall). Weatherproofing isn't an issue for either of these tents either, even though one is slightly lower than the other, both will keep you dry in most downpours. Given it's a little wider, I would probably suggest the Spartan, although you'd be equally as happy with the Oztrail Vertex 3 Hiking Tent.
