Zempire Jetset 5 Inflatable Air Tent – How to setup & pack away

– This is the Jetset 5 Inflatable Air Tent from Zempire. It is a really affordable
air tent that sets up with one of these. I’m gonna show you how to do it. Let’s get started. ♪ Hit it. ♪ (upbeat music) Hi folks, Pete from
Snowy’s here today at the Brownhill Creek Terrace Park in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs. This is a nice little bush setting place for you to set up your
tent or your caravan if you’re just checking out
the area for the weekend or even if your stay
is a little bit longer. I’ve got some Zempire
products here for you today. Set up up from of me, or packed up sorry in front of me here is the Jetset 5 Inflatable Air Tent. This is an affordable air tent in the Jetset air tent series range. It’s going to be a great option for compact family camping. Packed up like this it weighs about 14 or just over 14 kilos. Measures about 70 centimetres in length, and about 35 centimetres in diameter. I’m going to show you how to set it up and how to pack it away today, ’cause it is a super
easy tent to do as such. It’s got one inflatable pore. Everything’s set up just with a pump. You don’t need to
assemble poles and things. I’m going to start by showing you what comes in the bag though. So inside the bag, which is a neat compression type bag, it’s got an expansion
gusset in it to make it easier to get the tent back inside. You get the tent which is secured with a few straps here. You get a bag of pegs. These are all the poles you get with it. These don’t form the main
structure of the tent, you get some awning poles here, so you can set the front
door up as an awning. These are brow poles, just to give a bit of
stability around the side. The rest of the frame is all an air pole, which we’ll show you shortly. You get this pump, now this is what you
need to set the tent up. You get a number of components with it. The pump, you get a pressure gauge, the pressure release gauge and the hose. I’ll show you how to set that up shortly. And this is actually all bundled together, the main or the inner tent and the frame. It’s actually all joined together there at the moment. You can set them up independently, but at the moment that’s all together. The first thing we’re going to do is set up the pump. To do that we grab our
pressure release valve, which is this bit here, and we lock that in place
on the inflate side. You’ll see it’s got inflate and deflate. So I’m gonna put it on
the inflate side here. We then lock the hose in place. Now the hose, the portion that’s got
this little threaded section here needs to
go up against the pump. We lock that in place as well. And then we grab our pressure gauge here and we screw that into the threaded port in the top of the hose there. And that’s our pump ready to go. Now this is a double action pump. Which means it pumps as
you push and as you pull. Zempire do have 12 volt
options as an optional accessory for the tents
to make it even quicker to set up your pump. (tent rattling) So that’s all ready to go. Next step, is to pull all the poles and things aside and we want to spread the tent out and put the four corner pegs in place. (hammer tapping) So that’s our four pegs in place. Now before we inflate it, we do need to make sure
that the door is done up. So we zip this inner door up if it’s not already done up. That’s gonna help the tent hold it’s shape as we inflate it. Now just for interests sake, you might be wondering how strong these air poles are. This is the air pole here. There’s a bladder contained within this fabric here. Now I’m actually just going to show you what’s inside. They come sealed up. There’s a cable tie here, so you can replace these
bladders if you need. But I’m actually just
going to trim it for you. I’m going to show you what’s inside and how well protected or how strong these air poles really are. So inside this outer material here, if you unzip this, you’ll see we’ve got a clear, it’s quiet a thick TPU
type material in there so it’s not a lightweight bladder at all. There’s no seams around there, it’s a continuous tube, so it’s a nice strong bladder. And then that’s contained
within a sort of dual layered fabric out here. There’s a tarp type
material on the inside here. Then laminated to that
on the outside is another nylon or polyester material as well. So the air poles
themselves are really well protected inside these protective covers. And these run right
over the top of the tent wherever the air poles exist. So now we’ve got our pump and then we can inflate the poles. Now there’s two inflation ports, but we only need to
inflate from one of those. And each of them look like this. So there’s two sections to the valve. This has been undone completely to let the frame down. To do it up, we screw this first
section in place firmly. Just making sure we
don’t cross thread it or catch anything in the thread. We make sure that the
other valve on the opposite corner to where I am
now has this cap on top, otherwise we’re pumping air in here and it’s escaping out the other corner. So that one’s all sealed up. We then grab our pump, we insert this end into
the top of the valve here and we start pumping. Now this pump’s a double action pump, so it’s pushing air in as we pull up and as we push down. This pressure release
valve will start hissing once it reaches nine psi, but I can just watch
my pressure gauge here. When we get up to around about nine, we should be good to go. (pumping) You need to stop now and then and just help the frame. We need to kinda help this centre bit. We want it to pop upwards. At the moment it’s angled downwards so see if you can get you’re hand in underneath the fly. This centre section here. And just give it a hand to … There we go! … to stand up right. And we’re almost done. This is getting a little
bit firm at the edge just as you’re reaching the full pressure. We’re almost there. (pumping) So this is actually now, this valve is now hissing. It actually only shows
about seven and a half to eight psi in the valve there. So that air now is just coming out this valve here or this
pressure release valve rather than going into the tent. So we can’t over inflate it. So that is the frame (pumps) all set up. We can take our valve out. There’s a one way valve in here, so we can take the pump out without the air escaping again. We put the cap back on, and that’s the frame all set up. Now I have set this up
with this fly attached, ’cause the beauty of
this tent is there’s no poles when it’s rolled
up to damage the fly. So we can roll it all
up together without any worries about compromising the waterproof properties of the fly here. You can set it up without
the fly at all though. It simply clips on at the bottom here. There are tabs, that one’s not done up, tabs that go around the frame here. There’s one here at the top. Goes around the frame and little tabs on each corner here. And that’s all that holds the fly on. So we can if we liked, take this fly off completely
and use this without the fly for a night sleeping
out under the stars. And this is to say I’m
going to leave the fly on. It gives you full weather
protection and you still get good ventilation in this tent with the fly attached. And it makes set up and pack away a whole lot quicker. (hammer tapping) From here I’ll put this back on. We go around to the corners and put all our pegs in the
corners here of the fly. (hammer tapping) Now I’ve actually skipped a step here. I’ve pulled the three guy
ropes in on each side here and I’ve pegged around
the base of the tent. There’s one in each corner here. There’s also one at the rear. And a small guy rope at
the rear here just to hold this rear storage section out a bit. The step I forgot was
these fibreglass poles. These are the only
fibreglass poles in the kit. These are called the brow poles. These sit across the top of the front and the back of the tent here. They go in these little
pockets on the side. They feed through this
sleeve at the top here and go in another pocket at the side, just the bring this side
of the tent out a bit. Give a bit more space
underneath the fly sheet. Now they just need to
loosen the guys ropes and the little strap
at the base of the tent where the peg goes to get this in. ‘Cause it fits quiet firmly. And now that that’s in
place it sits over this reinforced section of the fly here. It’s given me this extra space out here for the water to run off. And I can tighten all of these points again on the fly. And then I do the same thing around the front of the tent. (hammer tapping) We’ve got a few set up options with the awning at the front here. I’ve pegged it straight out like this for starters which gives us the option for weather protected storage underneath here. And you can access on each side. This door here that I’ll show you now, also features on the
other side of the awning. It zips open up along the edge here. We can roll this back and secure it with these tabes here. And that gives up a bit of access. Not a huge amount of space, but a weather protected
awing or vestibule sorry at the front of the tent here. But there’s not a lotta room to stand in. The other alternative is that we can use the included awning
poles, these guys here, and the guy ropes to
set this up as an actual shade awning at the
front of the tent here. I’ll set that up now and
show you how that looks. That is the Jetset 5 tent all set up. Now it was pretty quick to set up. The longest bit was
putting all the pegs in and the awning at the front. Actually pumping the frame
up probably took only about a minute maybe
only two to three minutes tops to actually pump the main frame up. So the longest bit is
sticking the pegs in. So if you’ve got hard ground that’s what gonna take the longest. That’s it all set up. Pack down is pretty
much easier than set up. I’ve taken all the pegs out that set up the awning, all the guy rope pegs
and all but four corner pegs for the tent so far. So the tent’s still secure just in case the wind picks up. A few more things we need to do before we go and deflate the frame. We need to make sure this door is done up. Now this is mainly for set up next time. If this door is done up
when we pump the tent up next time we set it up, having this done up is
going to help the tent take a proper shape and
there’s not gonna be any extra undue stress on any zips at all. So zip all these up. We now need to take these brow poles out. Just pop them out of the
sleeve at the ends here. Then slide them out from these sleeves at the top. Now comes the coolest bit of letting the tent down. You can go to any one of these ports, there’s one here and
there’s one on the opposite corner over there as well. We’re going to unscrew
this and when we do it, it is gonna rush out
of here really quickly and it’s going to make
a really cool sound. And the tent will collapse down in a matter of seconds. And that’s the tent collapsed down. Now I can pull the four corner pegs out. Fold all the tent into the centre. Put it back in the bag. (tent rustling) I’ve got the bag here for a bit of a judge of how wide I need this. I have opened up the other valve as well on the frame. And I’m rolling the
whole tent towards those valves so I’m squeezing any extra air out of the frame as I go. That went back in the bag really easily given the bag has this
gusset to allow for a bit of a lazy roll I suppose
to make it a bit bigger so it goes in there really easily. That is how you set up and pack away the Jetset 5 inflatable air tent from Zempire. I reckon it’s a ripper. You can check them out at snowys.com.au where you’ll find them at our lowest prices every day. Free delivery to just

  1. Given that few bricks and mortar stores have every tent on display, or even space to set up tents of interest, these videos on features and setup of individual tents are invaluable. Looking forwards to more videos on the extensive Zempire Family camping Airtents range; very popular in Europe and and an arguable game changer for Australian campers in terms of design and features.
