Perfect for three mates or a tribe of kids, the Goondie 3 has sprawl space and large vestibules for cooking or stowing gear. Same same, but bigger.

Finished with silicone and polyurethane coatings and fully seam sealed in the factory.
30D: made from a slightly heavier and more durable 30-denier polyester. with at 1500mm Sil/PU waterhead, these gorgeous orange numbers are not only easier to spot, they have higher UV resistance, making them better suited to four-season use.
There are also two inner options for most tents.
Nylon: the full, breathable nylon inner has DWR treatment for better insulation and protection from condensation. Suitable for year-round use.
Mesh: this inner is made mostly from mesh, allowing fantastic breathability and air flow. It is perfect for warmer, more humid conditions. (It is also a bit lighter than the nylon alternative.)
The floor used in our tent range is tough enough to stand up to life in the bush without needing a footprint underneath. Made from 100-denier, 5000 millimetre, PU-coated HT nylon, the bathtub construction is watertight, with high side walls to prevent splash back.
The optional 3D footprint is made from the same material, designed to be used with the fly of a 4Midable, Goondie 1, 2 or 3 for a light-and-fast set up.
All our poles are supplied by DAC, the industry leader. The poles are light, strong and reliable, made using a new environmentally friendly anodising process.
Our forged alloy pegs are made using the same method as rockclimbing hardware – perhaps a little overengineered? Despite their strength, they’re easy to push in. What else do you want?
When choosing a tent site, ideally find a position that is:
Don’t be Luke Skywalker with his light sabre! Flicking the pole up to snap it all together is great fun, but it damages the shock cord and fractures the segments. Take time and put the segments together with care.
Keep sand and grit out of the pole segments. If they do get dirty, clean them out with water and let them dry thoroughly before storage.
Keep them fully open or fully shut, but don’t go merrily tripping in and out a half-open door. It’s a great way to bust an ankle, and a zip! Although we use high-quality parts, the teeth can still be damaged if a zip is stressed when only partially done up.
All synthetic fabrics are degraded by the sun’s rays. Avoid leaving your tent in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
