Eezi Awn tents could be the most under rated tent in the world.  Incredible performer in poor weather. A surprise entry into our worlds top 5 tents.

We have manufactured quite a few modifications for the Eezi-Awn Stealth (we rate this tent very highly for Victorian Weather conditions - apart from a few minor misgivings - it is the personal favourite of 2 of the staff here at Tough Touring). Here are some of the mods that take this tent to the next level where it belongs.

While the Eezi-Awn tents share many common features across the range, we will talk predominantly about the Stealth. Mainly because, in our opinion, it is one of the best tents on the market. It is very secure in strong winds, and it is the only tent we've seen that features a fully insulated floor, which is very good at preventing condensation in the mattress. 

The Stealth features many groundbreaking and unique features including a frontal scissor-lift that picks up the front of the tent without need for power or gas struts. The lifting floor gives it immense space for its small footprint. Taller people tend to also have big feet, and this tent will accommodate persons up to 6'8 with ease.  Mattress density/quality and overall finish on this tent's mechanical mechanisms, housing and interior are in our opinion, a step above all South African competition. This tent is so comfortable in poor weather that you won't notice anything less than a blizzard. 

The tent's ladder, housed in a rebate under the tent is also unique - whilst the side profile is a very thin 150mm - making it the least most obtrusive looking tent on the market along with its close cousin, the Blade.

Airflow internally is pretty good, helped by the twin weather 'socks' fitted at the pointy end of both canvas walls. The Stealth and the Blade share a cool zip down the awning, which can be closed and zipped shut from inside the tent if the wind comes up. Genius :)

"In the new world of Modern high speed 4wd vehicles - The Eezi Awn stealth stands ahead of the rest with zero road noise, a comfy bed and utter disrespect of wild weather."

Some poor information and marketing on this tent have probably hurt its prevalence in the Australian Bush. Early on, it was incorrectly stated that it was a 'heavy' tent. In fact, at 103kg it is sitting very close to the weight of the competition in the range of "high lift clamshell tents" such as the  Bush Company Alpha, Camp king and Boss RT1 tents that offer similar length of usable accommodation when weighted - apples for apples. (Mattress in).
