Our iconic Outdoor Education Blue Series tents are named after the colour of their awesome fly material. This 75-denier polyester fabric has sil/PU coating, a 1500 mm water head, and is seam sealed in the factory. We use this material for its fantastic UV resistance and longevity. Our flies are incredibly durable and excel in all conditions, holding taut in wind and rain without sagging, keeping you safe and dry.
The Outdoor Education series tents are designed to withstand years of harsh use. Our bathtub floors use 210-denier, PeU-coated polyester with huge 5000-millimetre water head. The Polyether Urethane (PeU) coating is ideal for rugged tent floors as it doesn’t wet out and is resistant to mould, mildew and hydrolysis. Designed for Australian conditions, they’re ready to use in the wet and snowy, rocky and rough, damp and muddy – the harsh and varied environments we love to explore.
RECTANGULAR & SPACIOUS
Rectangular: honest and fair. The symmetrical designs aid easy (and fast!) pitching as the flies can be put on in any direction. Designed with students in mind, our Blue Series have big vestibules (for pack storage and easy entrance/exit) and spacious squared interiors (to fit any sleeping mat). Combined they improve comfort and freedom in journey-based programs. A home away from home.
PRESSFIT SNOW POLES
Pressfit poles are defined by their unique durability and ingenious design: During construction, the connecting inserts are pressed into each segment with the highest precision, a method that creates a more robust and reliable pole: well suited to the rigours of outdoor education. We thick diameters 11.1mm as the thicker selected diameter contributes to pole reliability, structure (ideal for snow loading and wind), and overall tent integrity.
The ONE PLANET® key-and-hook system for connecting the tent fly, inner and poles is designed to be simple and durable. The flat metal key fits neatly into the base of the tent poles while the metal alloy hooks easily attach. This is an elegant, reliable solution for outdoor education that we’ve been using for years, and it is virtually unbreakable, even when stepped on.
We choose oversized #10 YKK zips because they’re durable and long lasting. These zips are extremely durable, with each zip tooth reliably thick – the zip is less likely to get clogged with dirt, catch or snag. We use straight zips to reduce wear and to allow the easy replacement of sliders (they’re designed to wear out before the teeth). Dual sliders on doors allow easy opening from either side.
Our Wurley series uses a cross-pole system for unparalleled strength-to-weight, profiled aerodynamic structure, and ease of setup. The three poles cross at the peak providing rigidity while maximising internal height. The freestanding design is no slouch: the inner and fly are held taut and separate. By eliminating structural hubs we keep the form simple, giving maximum strength and aerodynamic shaping that gives confidence in powerful, gusty winds.
HARDENED ALLOY PEGS
ONE PLANET© tent pegs look classic, but simple genius is hard to come by. The hardened alloy construction gives these 16 centimetre beauties incredible tensile strength while keeping them lightweight. The curved hook is soft in your hand so you can push them in easily without hurting your palm. They hold securely overnight and are easy to spot – they’re anodised bright red – and are easy to pull out the next morning.
OUTDOOR EDUCATION DESIGN
We developed our Blue Series of Outdoor Education tents to be simple and intuitive to pitch, strong in all conditions and tough enough to endure teenage use. They’ve become the workhorses (or work tents) of the industry. Colour coding on the poles, inners, flies and bags keeps organisation easy, while componentry that is backwards compatible ensures spares are always available. The range is true to its design philosophy and is still built from the best available materials.
