Outdoor Connection Tanbar Air Tent Launching

Product features

Outdoor Connections “air poles” have bladders of tough high-quality TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) which has excellent tear resistance and flexibility and are enclosed within “Dura Sleeve” bonded poly 300 fabric. Simply pump up the poles with high volume hand pump and watch the tent quickly erect itself. Air Ridge poles* are then added to provide additional stability.

The Adventure Air does not require air ridge poles due to its compact size

Ventraflow panels at the bottom of both sides of the tent allow a cross flow of air down low where you sleep. Australian summer nights can be hot and humid so fresh air where you are sleeping is essential. There isn’t much point in having the limited fresh air drifting in through windows that are too high to be of direct benefit. Ventraflow panels have internal privacy screens so you can adjust the air flow without having to go outside and adjust the external window covers. 

 Ventraflow external covers can be pegged out so that you can have fresh air even while it is raining. These external covers are gusseted giving extra rain protection as well as protecting the tent from over-stress as the covers are pegged out. Ventraflow, in conjunction with large windows and doors, provides unparalleled ventilation for your comfort.

Power Cord Access Feature

G'day, I'm Sandy from Outdoor Connection. I'm just going to talk to you a little bit today about our power cord access points on our tents. It's just a simple little zippered pocket down here at the corner of the tent.

Large Windows Feature

Hi, I'm Sandy from Outdoor Connection, today I'm going to talk to you a little bit about the large windows in our tents. All our windows have window covers over them, so that gives you privacy screens for if you just want to get changed, you can adjust them for how much air comes through, so you can unzip them a little way, tuck them over like that, so you've got a bit of ventilation, or you can go all the way down to the bottom. It can be rolled up and clipped in there, or you can do what I do, roll them up a little bit and then just zip up a couple of inches. So you can see, you've got full ventilation with mesh all the way from here right up to the roof.

Omega Doors Feature

The Omega door is a large ’round’ door with two slides. As a result, the door can be opened or closed from any position. This allows the privacy screen to be zipped from the floor upwards on both sides so that you can regulate the flow of air into the tent. As a result of the Omega design the door.


Durafine No-See-Um Mesh Feature

Durafine No-see-um mesh
On Outdoor Connection tents, doors and windows are made as large as possible to ensure maximum ventilation and feature no-see-um mesh (a very fine mesh) to keep the smallest of bugs out. The quality of this mesh is therefore critical as this mesh constitutes a ‘weak point’ in any tent.

Door And Window Pockets Features

Omega doors unzip all the way around to one point and can conveniently be stuffed into pockets for easy storage. Window privacy screens can also be stowed in this manner on a number of models.

Door Locks Features

Internal clips on all doors clip the zipper tags together locking the door on the inside. A combination lock is provided to lock a door when you leave the tent. Door locks five added security at night when you leave your tent, and are unique to Outdoor Connection.

Guy Rope Pockets

Transcript: G'day, I'm Sandy from Outdoor Connection. I'm going to talk today about our guy rope pockets. So our guy ropes are stored in these zippered little pockets, comes out like that. So this is your guy right point where it attaches to the tent, what we've also got in here is a piece of PE tarp material, and that actually gives more strength to that point and then your guy rope gets pegged down from there. All our premium tents have these guy rope pockets at the top of the poles. Just a little tip, remember to make sure that the guy ropes are completely dry before you pack them away. Otherwise you run the risk of getting mildew on your tent.

All guy ropes are pre-tied to the tent and some models feature zippered pockets to store the guy ropes when not in use.


Hybrid Poles

The Hybrid Pole system consist of steel upright poles, an ABC plastic elbow and fiberglass poles over the top of the tent. This allows taller and straighter walls which gives more headroom and internal space. It is also much stronger than traditional designs.


Hornet Pole System

The Hornet Pole System consists of a centre ridge pole and 4, 6 or 8 upright ribs. This pole structure is easy to erect and provides excellent strength and stability. The bent features in the side poles allow near vertical side walls which give excellent internal space and headroom throughout.


The Three Pole Awning is a great innovation unique to Outdoor Connection dome tents. Using a three pole awning attached to a dome tent means that the middle pole forms a ridge line along the awning allowing rain that is falling on the awning to run off to the sides. During wet weather you can leave the awning fully erect. No more cooped up inside just because of a bit of rain. You can comfortably sit or stand under the awning while enjoying the freshness that comes with nature’s great rejuvenator.

The awning is skilfully cut so that there are no sag points and an awning tightening strap ensures no sag that would normally naturally occur where the awning joins the tent.

Add in one or two awning side walls and you have a great outdoor space that provides both comfortable shade and shelter over an area that can measure up to 5.7 x 2.3 Meters.

Pole Sleeves

A combination of pole sleeves and clips are used on the larger tents. Pole sleeves are used to spread the weight evenly along the seams and poles. It also results in a stronger structure and more resistance to strong winds.


Storage Pockets Feature

G'day, I'm Sandy from Outdoor Connection. Today I'm going to talk to you a little bit about the gear pockets in our tents.All our Resort Range tents and our Air Pole tents have two of these pockets in each corner. The pockets are quite large you can fit a magazine with your glasses, things like phone, keys, wallet and a torch so it's easy to find atnight. All those little things that can go missing in the tent you.
