Oztrail Skygazer Tent Review
The outer fly is fully waterproof being made from Oztrail's UVTex® 2000 Sun Tough Fly fabric, which repels UV light as well as water.
The fly is heat seam sealed providing an extra comfort factor for those who get unlucky with the rain. It also includes velcro straps to ensure secure fastening to the frame and storm flaps over the zippers.
The heavy-duty floor is in the bucket style common to this type of tent and great at keeping out any water or dampness. With its durable fibreglass poles, this tent should have little trouble in moderate to strong winds.
With an internal area of 2m (W) x 2m (L) x 1.2m (H) this is the perfect size for a couple or single who need something for a weekend getaway.
As is typical with this style tent there is no additional storage in the entrance way so all gear needs to be kept inside the main sleeping area.
Weighing in at only 3kg the Oztrail Skygazer could even be thrown in the backpack for short hikes.
The stand out feature of the Skygazer is evident in its name. The No-See-Um mesh inner provides inhabitants with a view of the stars from the comfort of their bed (without worrying about bugs).
Weather permitting, the mesh also provides sensational ventilation.
Usual features such as power cord access and internal storage pockets are also present.
A great tent for weekend getaways and festivals for those on a budget.
The Skygazer is unlikely to last you a lifetime but if cared for properly it should provide many years of enjoyable use. The No-See-Um mesh is an awesome addition allowing views of the stars and next level ventilation.
