Ever heard of a 30 second tent? No? Well, let us introduce you. This amazing little number pops open in seconds (yes, seconds), letting you get on with the serious business of camping. Seriously speaking, it's a lot of fun. Unless you're a first-time camper struggling with ropes and pegs and tent poles, in which case a pop up tent could save you a lot of hassle. It packs flat into a circular carry bag but as soon as you pull it out - pop! We don't call it the Swift-Pitch for nothing!
Instant up, instant down - they literally flick up.

OZtrail tents use waterproof and water repellent fabrics. However, with the addition of seams, zips and other desirable features a recreational tent will not be as waterproof as a car, house or other solid structures.
The following are common examples of how water can enter a tent:
Condensation - When warm moist air meets cooler air, condensation occurs. The tent/shelter fly forms an impermeable layer between the inside and outside conditions. The moisture inside the tent/shelter condenses on the fabric. Sometimes in cold conditions it appears that the fabric is leaking when in fact the cause is condensation. Condensation can be reduced if the tent/shelter is well ventilated.
Zips - All care is taken in the design to cover zips with rain flaps. At times wind driven rain could force water under the rain flaps and through the zips. To minimise this, make sure all doors and windows are closed with the rain flaps covering the zips.
Floor - If the ground is very wet or water pools under the floor, downward pressure of standing or kneeling on the floor could force water through the floor fabric. To prevent this, do not pitch the tent over hollows and make sure water drains away from the tent.
Structural Integrity - A perfectly pitched tent on perfectly flat ground is structurally strong and most waterproof. During prolonged periods of rain and wind it may be necessary to tighten guy lines and reset the tent pegs and attend to drainage around the tent. Sagging and incorrect pitching weakens the tent structure and could allow water to pool on the fly placing undue forces on the tent causing leaking and breakages.

"Purchased the 2 man tent version. Very easy to erect, however would not recommend for 2 people. Have 2 children that fit in the tent but mattresses do not. Self inflating mattresses have to overlap and touch the sides thus would not be very waterproof.
I would recommend purchasing for a single person only."
