Anyone tried out the Aldi tents? Look like a coleman instant up clone and on there special buys next weekend. I might try grab a 6p version.
I have an oztent but this cracked me upmy review after fark all........sold my oztent,and gone back to pop up,there way overated,heavy cumbersome pita,some mornings of packing up,geez it was a hard work,lifting that mis-shaped sausage roll onto the roof racks,strained me back,lol.....3o seconds my arse,what a con job,has anyone tried hammering pegs in granite????And don't get me going on the annexe,all the side walls,front walls,zippers,vlecro,splitter poles,blardy,blah another pita,lol.And the biggest annoyance is the fung swaye,lol,your lying arse about,flippen sideways,not front to back,no wonder I would wake up like an hibernating bear after being disturbed.
Once I use to rave about it,you know that thing you do to yourself after you've been shafted and you cant admit it,you wanna convince yourself it was a good buy when all along deep down you know the truth.so on ebay it went for some other gullable, believe the hype,unfortunate sucker who snapped it up........Sorry.
I have seen they now have the "eyre"model,maybe lighter....Its not just the 30 second oztent that is overated its the pop up range too,take the malamoo mega around 3-350 bucks and its claim to fame is its front vestuable to keep your "gear out of the weather',what a joke,the front flap is not zippered along bottom and if you forget to prop up the bottom flap so it goes under the awning/front flap,if it rains the water pours in like the overflow at snowy hydro.....not to mention an easy entrance and hiding place for snakes and critters to make a home amongst your clothes in the night,and no internal hooks to hang a light...simple design yet overlooked by oztent.The reviews on snowys go in the same vain as my observations,so maybe they listened cause the new range which have a different name,now have a full zippered front panel..HOORAY.credit to them there.Im looking at the Oz tent now but after reading 99pc chimpanzee's thoughts im not so sure now haha.
Hmm, canvas or nylon? I find the nylon packs pretty well now I have the technique down but is 2 ppl to do well. We have the plus which is more awkward. Space in the bag is fine for nylon. Main tipsBut with Black Wolf. They appear to be quick and easy but they are too bulky and while the actual tent sets up quickly, the fly takes as long again. Packing up is a nightmare.....
