  • Features
  • Specifications
  • Instructions
  • 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.
  • 4000mm aqua rated The waterproofness of polyester is rated in mm which refers to water column height in millimetres. This fabric will withstand a 4000mm 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.
  • 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.
  • Storage pockets Handy storage to easily locate important items and to minimise clutter.
  • Fly included A fly adds longevity to your tent fabric while also providing many other benefits. It helps keep the tent cooler during the day and warmer at night. It cuts down noise and reduces morning light for a more comfortable sleep. It also stops condensation in the same way a building does with inner ceiling and outer roof trapping air between the layers.

  • SO Easy! Holly

    Well it certainly didn't disappoint!!! We rocked up to our campsite (in the middle of nowhere) it was late, dark and rainy, but seriously this tent was SO easy to set up (and its crazy lightweight which will be perfect when hiking). We had the 5 kids all comfy, settled inside and fast asleep before we knew it. Thanks guys u rock! xo
  • Awesome Hiking Tent Roy

    Just used this for a week long college tramp in Queen Charlotte Sound and it was brilliant with loads of room for three students with their backpacks in the front entry. Quick and easy to put up and take down and a nice lightweight bundle to carry, it kept everyone dry even with overnight rain. We've tried a number of hiking tents of various brands and the Kiwicamping Ruru is by far the best.
  • Kept Us Warm and Dry All Week In The Queen Charlotte Ella

    I just walked the queen Charlotte tramp and we used the Ruru 4 man kiwi camping tent and it was awesome! There were a few really windy nights and the tent held up really well, I didn't feel any breeze and the tent barely shook at all. I highly recommend this tent. It is easy to put up, warm and spacious.
