  • Instructions
  • 5000mm aqua rated The waterproofness of polyester is rated in mm which refers to water column height in millimetres. This fabric will withstand a 5000mm column of water for more than one minute before a single drop might appear through the fabric. The thicker the coating the longer the aqua rating lasts so Kiwi Camping double-coat our polyester, meaning our aqua rating is the minimum waterproofness, rather than the maximum.
  • 75 denier fabric We use a medium density/high thread count (Denier) polyester PU coated fabric for the fly, which we have developed over many years. This fabric has superior tensile strength and is 8 times more durable than nylon. It doesn't stretch or sag when wet like nylon does and is a heavier quality than comparable fabrics.
  • Seam sealed The seams of your dome tent or shelter are the most vulnerable for water leakage. We use a custom-developed method of heat-sealing tape over the seams to maintain waterproofing, resulting in maximum protection against the elements at all points.
  • Twin stitched seams Lap felled seam construction (doubling seams around on each other) with twin stitching ensures maximum strength around the seams of your canvas tent.
  • UV protection For added safety and comfort the fabric has UPF 50+UV protection.
  • Fire retardant The fabric has also been treated with a fire retardant solution. Even with this protection, ensure you take particular care around heat and flames. Avoid using open flame, heating or cooking appliances in or around your tent.
  • Fibreglass poles Our StructureFlex fibreglass poles are the largest diameter possible, relative to the size of the tent. This ensures you get maximum strength at minimum weight. They are also coloured to match the coloured pole sleeves.
  • Air flow system In NZ the temperature variance from day to night can be extreme. With this in mind we include vents that are positioned to provide the greatest air flow through the tent during the day. At night they can be closed to contain valuable warmth.
  • Power mesh pole sleeves Our Takahe and Kea dome tents use power mesh for the pole sleeves which make it easier to feed the poles through. If you were to cause a rip in the material it will not tear like a polyester pole sleeve would.
  • Pin and ring pole attachment Quick and easy pole assembly and dismantling system.
  • Guy rope attachment This guy rope attachment spreads the tension evenly and pulls from the frame giving more support.
  • Quality zips, ropes and poles All our tents use heavy duty coil zips, guy ropes and poles so you can be assured your tent will last for many years of exciting family camping holidays.
  • Tri-tensioners We use triangle-shaped guy rope tensioners rather than in-line tensioners to ensure the ropes do not slip.
  • Speedhook clips Fast and efficient for erecting the tent. Flexibility allows for movement in windy conditions.
  • No-see-um mesh Even small bugs can't get through our no-see-um-mesh. Enjoy insect free living with ample air circulation.
  • PVC skylights/windows Skylight windows are 2-way, with clear PVC on the outside and a zipped 'privacy' screen on the inside. This adds valuable light in all weather conditions but maintains privacy.
  • Accessory pockets Accessory pockets provide handy storage for smaller items and valuables.
  • Storage pockets Handy storage to easily locate important items and to minimise clutter.
  • Lantern hanging points Conveniently located tabs to hang LED lanterns.
  • Power cord entry Power cord entry makes it easy to plug in appliances or charge your phone when on a powered tent site.

    I love our tent. It is spacious, tall enough to stand up in and extreemly well made. Strong winds came up at Lake Ohau yesterday and I thought "What damage will I find when the sun came up". Except for the pegs pulling out of the ground during the storm only the front Structure-flex Fibreglass Pole broke which we duly duct taped up and its still standing.

    At the end of last year I finally retired my old faithful of 25 years. I bought this tent in the Autumn Sales only just breaking it out now. Relatively easy to erect my myself in a strong wind in the Orongorongo River valley although I would not attempt this by inexperienced or novice campers. Extremely spacious with a tonne of headroom. Would be well ventilated when opened up fully. Plenty of storage cavities. Survived the strong overnight winds adequately although on dismantling discovered a grey spar had split along the shaft as a result. I suspect that this my be a design vulnerably as a result of the headroom given a previous review. I particularly liked the star windows. Leant a few tricks first outing but it is looking good for when it gets used for a week in the Urewera Park after the new year.
