  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Aluminium poles Our Powerflex aluminium poles are the largest diameter pole 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. These are teamed up with lightweight high-strength aluminium 'V' hiker pegs.
  • 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.
  • Accessory pockets Accessory pockets provide handy storage for smaller items and valuables.
  • Door storage pockets Clean and neat storage for the doors when they are fully zipped open.
  • Lantern hanging points Conveniently located tabs to hang LED lanterns.
  • Size: 245 x 220 (cm)

  • Awesome! Daniel

    bought this tent 1 year ago, used many times hunting/tramping up in the ranges, amazing! never leaked once in huge downpours, or being covered in snow. highly recommend this tent over anything i have used or seen. Great quality, great design, packs small, light.
  • Wilderness Magazine Review - Best Tent on a Budget! Wilderness Magazine

    The Weka 2 is spacious for a two-person tent, and for the price, is a great option for camping as long as weight isn’t an issue. At 2400g, it’s fairly hefty and will require it to be split between your group. Pitching is a breeze; with colour-coded aluminium poles and a full-voverage tent fly which snaps into place with adjustable buckles. There’s ample headroom in this tent; it’s unique configuration provides enough space to sit up without your head grazing the ceiling. With both entrances open, it feels airy and spacious and is roomy enough not to feel cramped. Ample vestibules provide plenty of storage space. The tent was put through its paces on several trips. It held up in the wind, rain, on sandy beaches and in mud puddles. The 4000mm fly and 5000mm floor was up to the task; during one heavy downpour, the tent ended up in a puddle almost tipping over the bathtub floor, but we remained bone-dry inside. This low-cost tent can handle the rigours of the New Zealand outdoors and despite its weight; the price tag makes it an attractive option. - Meghan Walker (for Wilderness Magazine) Voted Best Tent on a Budget Scores (out of 5): Value 5 Weight 3 Comfort 5 Features 3 In use 4 OVERALL 4

The Weka

Smart and cheeky, weka are often found stealing food left lying around outside. Once fairly common in NZ, their numbers have now reduced dramatically due to hunting and destruction of habitat.
