Oztent Malamoo Teepee 6 Tent – Features


– This is the Oztent Malamoo Teepee 6 a classic teepee style tent that gonna help you stand out, at the campsite. Let’s go for a walk through. ♪ Hit it ♪ Ben from Snowys here folks and a beautiful sunny day! At the Brownhill Creek tourist park in Adelaide! I’ve got the Malamoo Teepee 6-10 from Austent set-up here. This is going to help you
stand out in the campsite it’s easier to set-up,
and a little it quirky for your family camping adventures. I’m going to take you for
a bit of a walk through. Now, let’s start with the
features on the outside, this is the door, or the entryway here but before we step in
there, I just want to come around and show you the windows. Now, this features on both sides so at the moment, we’ve
got this window closed with a storm flap here. There’s a couple of zips up the side; and we can sort of set it
up in two different ways. As if we zip this half way up to the first velcro tabs here… And roll this up, there’s a couple of tabs half way up that allows
us to secure this opened. And underneath is a clear PVC window. This a single skin tent so that’s looking straight inside
of the tent, there. Furthermore, if we want ventilation and we zip this all the way into the top. Keep going all the way only now we expose, once this is secured at the top of here, the PVC panel at the base for visibility and lets the light in the tent. And above that is this mesh panel here. Now that features on the other
side of the tent as well. I’ll show you that as we walk around. Moving around the back of the tent here. Now I’ll show you the
rear, there’s no windows or anything here, but there is a vent that features at the
top, at the back here. Now that also features above the door, but one thing to know about
this vent at the back. I’ve left that closed, and
now can’t reach it to open it. Now that the tents set-up. So I’d probably recommend
leaving them open all the time, for ventilation. The vent, the mesh is a
long way up under there. It’s gotta be really, really bad weather before you get any sort
of water or anything inside that. I don’t think it’ll ever happen. But maybe leave it open
before you set the tent up. Come here to this side of the tent here. I’ve got another one of the
windows that I showed you on the other side. I’ve just got this one closed. This window also has PVC panel on the base and mesh above there for
ventilation, if you like. Come here to the front of the tent. And we’ll now have a look at the door. Before we do that though,
lets talk about the fabrics. Now as I mentioned,
its a single skin tent. So this fabric on the outside is a 190T polyester fabric. There is one panel of mesh in here which is the door. So we can leave this panel open and get
ventilation through the front combined with the windows on the side and the vent on the top, ventilation throughout the tent. And the base of the tent is a 120G polyethylene or a tarp top material. So nice, durable, waterproof material. One other thing before I
step right inside the tent. I just wanna show you this vent at the top here. Now, I can reach this one here there’s a little keepstan, up under here If I wanna close that up, there’s velcro tabs there. So I can secure that closed if I like. It doesn’t quite match up, there we go. We’re going to reduce the
amount of breeze coming in but to be honest with
you, I’d leave it open all the time. It’s a single skin tent so, with single skin tents your increasing the chance of condensation inside if you don’t allow ventilation
throughout the tent. So, leave them open the mesh is about this far up, and you’re not going to
get any weather in there. If we step inside the tent here we’ll first secure these doors back. There’s a little tab on the side here that allows us to roll these up. Get them out of the way
so they’re not dangling in our way, while we’re in the tent we can also roll the mesh door back and secure that too, if we like. And now we can step inside the tent. Now, the first thing I’ll show you is the pole here. This is a 25mm steel pole. It’s got a rubber pad on the bottom here to stop it from putting
holes in the floor. There’s also a reinforced pad
on the floor here as well, just for an extra bit of longevity. Now in terms of the height of the tent, this pole is 2.5 metres in height. But it doensn’t actually give you 2.5 metres if you use it in space. Because it comes down to a really small peak at the top, there. In terms of usable space, now I am 185cm in height, so I can stand up in the middle of the tent here, but
quite close to the pole. As soon as I get over near the edge, I’m up against the side of the tent. With regards to the
actual space in the tent. There’s 350cm, is what Oztents are I measured it at about
340cm from side to side, so you’ve got a little bit less than that because of the sloping
sides of usable space in here, its an octagonal shape. So they say you can sleep 6, but it’s probably an awkward 6. I’d say it’s a pretty
comfortable 2-4 person tent I’ve got some airbeds outside, but I’m going to put in here and we’ll see how you might be able to use the space. Now these are XL single airbeds. They’re about 190cm in length and about a metre in width. So very comfortably
sleep two people in here. You’re wondering if you can fit a double. Now, I tried to fit a double
high queen size bed in here It just wouldn’t go through the door it’s too tight. But you could fit a double, single high airbed in here, the measurements from this pole here to the side there when this is pushed against the edge about 150cm. Most double mats are about 140cm, so you could fit two doubles in here. To fit 6 people though
you’d have to sleep some of them at the front and some at the back there on a very small mat. It’s going to be pretty tight but great room for 2 people ideal for a family of 4. A few other features inside the tent here the windows, as you can
see on the side there are not adjustable from the inside. That ones closed, and the other side there We’ve got this one open with that mesh panel ventilation. Now we’ve got a few
storage options in here there’s 3 pockets, divided in 2. There’s a mesh pocket
here, one at the rear and one at the other side as well just to keep the necessities at hand. And at the very top of the tent, we can see the vents that
we talked about earlier. They’re not adjustable from the inside, so this rear one is closed at the moment. Its still going to allow some ventilation but if I wanna open that right up, I need to take the pole out, lower it down and open the vent. Now the really good thing
about these tents is you can sleep a family of 4 in here. The whole thing weighs less than 7 kilos. It packs up to about 70cm in length and only about 20x20cm
in height and width. So, great for camping in small cars. It’s really sturdy too for
that sort of pack size. That’s pretty much all the features of the Oztent Malamoo teepee 6 tent. I reckon it’s a pretty unique option that’s going to make you
stand out in the campsite. And make that family camping experience just a little bit of extra fun! You can grab them online at snowys.com.au and have the lowest prices, everyday! Got any questions, let us know down in the comments below. Subscribe to my channel and you’ll get all of our latest and
