Made at Drifta HQ, from Australian canvas. 3 sided opening, larger size, quality YKK zips..
We’ve been asked a lot to make oztent replacement bags.. so here it is… Oztents are a very popular and quality tent.. but as is so often the case, the bag things come in can seem like an afterthought.. these oztent bags have improved a lot, but they still are not quite right..so I’ll show you the problems, and how we have made a better bag.. I am also including with every bag, one of the straps that hold the tent together when packed up, see below for more info on this..
We are currently trialling a BX brand ‘waterproof’ zip, just on this bag. It definitely helps stop water getting in thru the zip.. this will be standard on this bag until further notice, if you would prefer the YKK zip, then just put in the comments section.. ta L
Once the oztent bag is half done up, it gets really tight, and there is a lot of pressure on the zip, which is what causes it to fail.. our bag has more room, and also with the zip on the side, there isn’t as much pressure to hold it together.. you can see how this zip has had so much pressure it snapped in half..
While a lot of companies are either struggling to compete, or sending their manufacturing to china, Drifta is in the unique situation now, where we have several business’s feeding off each other, each helping to keep the other viable, spreading the overheads and expenses.. Drifta canvas couldn’t survive on it’s own, but as part of the Drifta brand, it’s generating a lot of turnover, and employing half a dozen people…
