    • Two good size rooms 240(W) x 220(L) + 240(W) x 220 (L)

    • Waterproofing with a MINIMUM 2000 mm Waterhead (actually measured to 2600mm) so you stay dry on your family holiday.
    • UV-PROTEK treatment of the outer fly fabric guarantees maximum resistance to fabric degradation from the damaging effects of UV light offering longer life to your camping home.
    • Stability Plus Pole sleeves for the inner tent poles to provide greater stability in wind and an overall stronger tent. Sleeves distribute the weight of the tent over the whole width of the roof.  This quality construction is in contrast to other brands where a few Hooks hold the roof of the tent to the poles. This ‘Hook’ suspension is the cheap way where the weight is all centred on a FEW POINTS and the tent is more or less free to wave around in the wind stressing both the tent and the poles.

    Tent Fabric Outer Fly:
    HTS Protek2000 Outer Fly fabric. High Tensile Strength. 70 GSM See comparative chart at https://outdoorconnection.com.au/wp-content/uploads/Tent-Waterhead-Fabric-Weight-Camparisons.pdf
    UV Protek formulation also ensures high abrasion resistence of the waterproofing so that as your tent ages, and suffers abrasion from the normal use of erecting and folding away, your water resistance alters very slowly.

    Outdoor Connection Duraproof coating formulation also ensures high abrasion resistance of the waterproofing so that as your tentages, and suffers abrasion from the normal use of erecting and folding away, your water resistance alters very slowly.

    Heat Taped seams.

    Inner Tent
    Fabric: 68D Breathable polyester to minimise condensation collection inside the tent living space.
    Dividing Wall between the two bedrooms are fully sewn in with a large Durafine No-See-Um Mesh D-Door, with privacy screen, that can be opened to make a large room.
    Standing room height over the full length of the tent.
    The privacy screens on all doors can be zipped up from the base so that you can control the air flow through the tent.

    Rear bedroom has large windows on both sides and rear wall.
    Front room has three large doors opening to the great outdoors.

    Pole Sleeves
    Stability Plus Pole Sleeves over the roof of the tent add strength and stability protecting the tent itself and the pole system.

    Pole System:
    Hybrid Pole System with steel side poles on the sides and fibreglass poles across the roof, connected with a Nylon bent ferrule.
    Three p[ole tent that is easy to erect.
    The steel side wall poles, while adding stability and strength allow the side walls to be near vertical.

    Sewing Thread:
    Highest quality sewing thread available used to ensure maximum strength and waterproofing. Waterproofing of polyester tents requires a special thread. The Brampton features the use of Coates 100% cotton Dual Duty thread. This is a three heads spun thread with three separate cotton threads spun together. This gives maximum strength. Cotton swells when it gets wet and this fills up the small needle holes made in the manufacturing process.
    Outdoor Connection actually manufactures tents (other models) so we know what we pay special attention to these small details!

    Floor Material:
    Waterproof PE Floor providing waterproofing without creating excess weight.

    All covers on doors and windows have tags or eyelets so that the covers can be poled out as awnings or pegged partially open in wet weather.

    Heavy Duty Coil No 8 zips ae a feature of all doors for long lasting durability.
    Windows have finer No 5 zips where less strength is required but a finer zip adds to protection from intrusion of wind and rain.
