DMH oberon

This is a bloody good tent to have for hiking, very light, strong and guess what, it fits 1 man & two large breed dogs + a pack and sulky cart under the fly in a pinch, one thing I would recomend to do is to seam seal the fly cover yourself , the taped seams alone are a let down at the tie ons in severe downpours of high wind.

Simply get a tube of selly's silicone sealant and a latex glove and rub in the silicone along the seams inside and out. NO PROBLEMS EVER AGAIN FOR EVER!

I don't know about the Oberon but I have 3 DMH tents and they are the Tanami, Omeo 3 and Omeo 4.

All 3 have stood the test of time, windy conditions and bad weather many times over. I agree I would not ever hesitate to purchase a DMH tent

Hey, we've just gone from a camper trailer back to tents. We didn't like those big done type things (imagine they take ages to put up) and the Tourer style just seemed overly heavy & bulky. So we ended up with two DMH Derwents - one for us and one for the two kids!

Just put them up for testing before our first trip - camping and visiting rellies.
