What type of the tent is this
This Omaha GT 6 tent is a new product from this brand, and here again they use the same colors as in most of their tents, you can compare it with this NTK Savannah GT 8 and NTK Super Arizona GT tents. They have built it properly, so you have a full coverage fly for a complete protection and this is why I have included it in my list of tents with full fly.
This is a dome style tent, but it is a bit more than that because the legs poles are almost straight and the shape is changed on the roof which is rather flat, see the picture. So it has some features of a cabin tent and it offers lots of headspace inside.
This is a double-layer tent and the fly goes all the way to the ground. With the fly on, the tent looks quite different and this in particular when you create the awning with its vestibule flap.
It is freestanding up to a point, namely the vestibules must be staked down to have them functional, but this is the usual case with such full-fly tents.
Who is it for
Space-wise, the declared capacity is 6 people. The inner area is 100 ft² (9.3 m²) and the two vestibules together add around 48 ft² (4.4 m²), so the total protected area is 148 ft² (13.7 m²). Per person, this means 24.7 ft² (2.3 m²). I would say this is quite a lot and it can accommodate the declared number of users. But for a true camping, I would downgrade the number of users to three maximum.
Weight-wise, this is a heavy structure that weighs 24.9 lb (11.3 kg). So this is for camping at places with a motorized access. The packed size is really good, 23 x 7 x 7 inches (58 x 18 x 18 cm) so you can transport it even on a motorbike.
Seasons-wise and climate-wise, the full fly and the huge waterproof rating are a guarantee that this tent will keep you dry if you use it in an area with lots of rain. The structure is aerodynamic and it is designed to withstand winds with ease. There is enough mesh on the inner tent for an air crossflow, so it should work well if you use it in a very warm environment. But I would not use it in a very cold area.
The materials & construction
There are two sets of poles:
- Tent fiberglass poles, thick and heavy, and you have three of them, one is used for the front vestibule.
- Two powder coated steel poles for the awning setup.
The poles contribute a lot to the overall weight of the tent, but they also make the tent so affordable, both are rather inexpensive materials. The tent poles attachment is through clips on the lower areas and through sleeves on the top. These sleeves make the structure freestanding as soon as you attach the poles to the corners where you have a pin-and-ring system for a fast and easy setup.
The awning poles are also accompanied by the corresponding guylines so you have all you need for the awning setup.
The fly is a 190T polyester laminated with polyurethane, so you have a very good 2500 mm waterproof rating. The seams are heat-sealed, and the whole structure offers UV protection. The fly is equipped with two vents on the top, and this is a CPAI-84 fire retardant material. The inner tent is a combination of mesh and taffeta.
The floor is a seamless, anti-fungal polyethylene and with a silver-coated inner layer to prevents leaks. So this should be highly waterproof in any conditions. You have a bathtub-style construction.
They do not provide D-value for this tent but I assume it is the same as in their NTK Super Arizona where you can see 68D fabric used.
The tent has two impressive doors on the opposite sides, with 2-way zippers. They are paired with two vestibules that have identical panels and two parallel zippers, but completely different in the area. The rear vestibule is quite small with some 11 square feet only, but the front vestibule is huge and it is additionally supported with the mentioned extra pole.
- A zippered E-port is included.
- There is a utility pocket for storage.
- On the ceiling, you have an O ring for a lantern.
The NTK brand has been around since 1975, they currently have a long series of tents on the market, and also other stuff for camping like sleeping bags, hammocks, etc.
Good and less good features
Here is my short summary:
