Ozark 1-Person Backpacking Tent Review

Link :

Price : $25

Weight : Around 3lbs with everything included

Color :  Yellow and Tan

Ozark offers multiple tents which they refer to as 1 Person Backpacking Tents;

The model number is Model# W796.1

Just in case that you don’t know, Ozark is a brand which is most commonly associated with Walmart but it can be found on other sites including amazon.  The pricing is definitely better on Walmart!

This brand is recognized for making very inexpensive, beginner-level backpacking gear and their quality is known for being so-so.

I attempted to locate the official Ozark web site to get further information about their products and the company but I’m not sure if I found it or not.  I located one site called Ozark Trail Tents . com and that was one of the fishiest looking sites that I have been on in a long time.  The fact that it had a popup with an animated character which was speaking to me didn’t help.  It reminded me a lot of the desktop babe from the 90’s!

Materials : While I am not entirely sure, I believe that is made from polyester.  Whatever it is cheap, doesn’t breathe at all.


  1. First I love your reviews and this is the first time I've ever commented but I'll be willing to take it off your hands. I live in Yuma AZ. one of the driest places in the US that gets 360 days of sun a year so I don't have to worry about moisture or rain.

    1. I might be able to give it to you; let me see what the viewer who sent it to me wants me to do with it. They might want it back, not sure. - Luke

  2. I found a 2-person Ozark camping tent a couple of years ago. I set it up in my yard, cleaned it and seam-sealed it. Then I gifted it to a homeless person who was set up under an overpass. I came back a couple of weeks later and asked how the tent was. The occupant liked it, but they were completely shielded from rain due to the highway. I notice that the Ozark brand was a big favorite of the homeless encampment as the tents are often spacious so they ample room for storage. In winter the homeless affix tarps over their tents to ensure dryness and protection from the elements. I'm not very big on Ozark tent products as I am a hardened backpacker, but they do make some very nice camping gear other than tents that I use.

  3. So I trust that I can enable you to deal with the way toward picking the best waterproof tent for you and your family.Ozark Trail tents
