  • Instructions
  • 75 denier fabric Strong, durable 75D polyester with a polyurethane (PU) waterproof coating. This fabric has superior tensile strength and is 8 times more durable than nylon. Our 75D fabric won’t stretch or sag when wet like other materials do and is a heavier quality than comparable fabrics.
  • 4000mm aqua rated This fabric will withstand a 4000mm (4 metre) solid column of water for more than 1 minute before a single drop might appear through the fabric. New Zealand’s highest 24-hour rainfall was 758mm - so we’ve got you covered! We also double-coat our waterproof PU coating for even better coverage and performance.
  • 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.
  • Double stitched seams Lap felled seam construction (doubling seams around on each other) with double stitching ensures maximum strength around the seams of your 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.
  • Speed-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)
  • Vestibule: 60 x 215 (cm)
  • Floor Area: 2.7m²

  • 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
  • Sneaky little weka Kyle

    I bought the weka 2 to replace another two man tent prior to walking rakiora. I was looking for a tent with double sided entry and decent vestibules on both sides as I don't like getting my pack wet over night. Well I have to say that this tent is a really user friendly design . You can get up during the night without disturbing your tent mate and both can keep there packs and boots undercover at night. I'm 5ft11 and could stretch out easily without my head rubbing. There are pockets in the right places and adequate ventilation to keep you warm and not clammy. It rained each night on the trail and we found it to perform well in the wet. Our companions had a MSR and there tent fly seemed to be wet on both sides while ours had shed the water off completely maybes that was because it was new? The other thing I liked is that the fly ran all the way to the ground. I think that's important in nz weather. The weight was fine and only slightly heavier than the mackpack it replaced. All in all I highly recommend it and am glad I bought it.

    I use this just for me as I prefer 2-man tents over 1-man. The only one I use up in the Kaimai-Mamaku ranges nowadays: light as, waterproofed to the max, warm and quick to set up. Having the outer shell is a bonus too because you can keep your boots (and your pack if you wish) under cover but not in the tent proper. Like others have said, the entry/exit either side comes in more handy than you think. Absolutely recommend these: if you get one, hold onto it, as sometimes stocks seem to evaporate. Great resale too once your hunting days are over!
    Thank-you for taking the time to write a review Wiily! We're stoked to hear the Weka has served you well on your adventures. Best regards, Kiwi Camping team
