G'day, I'm Sandy from Outdoor Connection! Today, I'm going to tell you a little bit about our Tanbar Air Pole Tent. You may have seen some of the videos from our Aria Elite Range. So why is the Tanbar Air different?
Firstly, the Tanbar is made of canvas. It's a 220-gram polycotton canvas, It's lightweight but it's very strong and durable. Because it's canvas, it doesn't need a fly like the polyester tents.
So that makes it quicker and easier to set up. Also, because it's canvas it does breathe a little as well and lets the condensation out, but it's still waterproof.
It also has a PVC floor this is good because it's heavy-duty, strong and it's a bucket floor which means it comes up at the sides a little about 10 to 15 centimetres. This is good because it gives a better water protection from the groundwater.
So the window covers here are full length, they can roll all the way up to the top of the tent. Or if you only want it half, fold it down, tuck it in like that. So the full length window covers inside, can be zipped right down to the floor or about halfway down if you like.
Like many of the Outdoor Connection tents, this tent has Ventraflow which gives you a cross-flow of air down low where you're sleeping. These can also be left out during heavy rain.
Tanbar Air also features a very large rear window. The sides are gusseted so that allows you to have the window open at night for privacy, but also for ventilation. Particularly if it's raining you'll still get your ventilation.
If you like, it can be unzipped and pegged right out like further, or rolled up altogether or closed altogether in the cold weather.
One great feature of this tent is the headroom. This is quite a large tent inside it's three metres wide by 2.8 deep and it's got plenty of headroom. I'm six foot one on the old scale and I can stand here without touching the roof.
This tent's been set up with the three-pole awning out. It has three adjustable awning poles that come with the tent and it can set it up here with a pitch on it so that allows the rain to run off when it's raining. That allows you to have the awning up in the rain.
We've also set the tent up with the optional awning sidewalls. These just velcro along the edge and tie off at the tent and an eyelet through the top there.They can be pegged at an angle like this, or they can be pegged straight down to the ground, or with a couple of extra poles, you can peg it out as an extended awning area. This gives excellent weather protection and shade but still allows ventilation.
The tent also comes with a little padlock like this and that's just great for just locking the two zipper heads together, to give you a bit of added security when you leave the tent.
The Tanbar Air is a very quick and easy tent to set up. If you're stopping just quickly overnight, and there's no wind you could probably just set it up with six pegs. We see it as a modern tourer tent, only with a lot more headroom. So that's the Tanbar Air tent!
