Goondie 1 Nylon 30D

One Planet
The Goondie 1 Nylon offers comfort and practicality, ideal for cooler climates. This is an all-season tent thanks to the protection and insulation of the full nylon inner and our high-sided bathtub floor, leading the industry in durability and water fastness. There is enviable interior height giving comfortable headroom when seated, while a mesh window in the door adds climate control. There’s a single-door entry with a large vestibule for gear, with a smaller storage vestibule on the other side for storing a stove or boots. This is a great safe haven from whatever’s outside your door.


The Goondie series is versatile from the ground up, giving you choice in size (1, 2 and 3-person) and material and style. There are two completely compatible options for both fly and inner: the Mesh or Nylon inner can be paired with either the 7 D nylon or 30 D polyester fly.

Separate components are available to either build your collection, or replace components after years of use.

Whether it’s the Mesh inner for the Larapinta Track or the Nylon inner for the alpine region, the ultralight nylon 7 D fly or all rounder polyester 30 D, our combinations will keep you covered. (We also stock Footprints for fast-and-light adventures.)


ONE PLANET® tent flies are designed to shield you from rain and weather.

The nylon 7 D is a dynamic, ultralight material developed for the weight conscious. This seven denier, sil/PU nylon is factory seam-sealed with a 1200 millimetre water head.

Our polyester 30 D is a static material with superior UV resistance and durability (compared to stretchier nylon fly’s). It holds fast in wind and rain with reduced sag, and excels in wilder conditions. It is sil/PU coated with factory seam sealing and a 1500 millimetre water head.


The Goondie series has a 70 D Nylon – PeU coated 20,000+ HH floor, which sounds more technical than it is: it’s a solid reliable floor designed for (and tested, reviewed, and loved in) Australian conditions. Our Goondie 1 and 2 are made from a single piece of fabric, eliminating the floor seam removes a common wear point. The robust 70-denier nylon has good abrasion resistance and ample ‘body’ to apply a thick hydrostatic head (water head) in excess of 20,000+ millimetres, independently ISO 811 tested. The Polyether urethane (PeU) waterhead coating is chosen for resistance to mould, mildew and hydrolysis.


We choose the world class DAC NSL Featherlite poles because they are lightweight, tough and reliable – exactly what you want in the field. We select poles with thicker diameters to increase pole reliability, structure and the overall integrity of our tents. DAC are world leaders in aluminum engineering and manufacturing. The NSL Featherlight poles use technical and seamless extrusion techniques to provide an exceptional and uniform micro structure, which translates to an ideal strength-to-weight ratio. Finished with environmentally friendly anodising processes.


The ONE PLANET® tent range uses the cross-pole system for its unparalleled strength-to-weight, and ease of use. The three poles cross at the peak for even weight distribution, providing excellent rigidity whilst preserving internal height. The freestanding design is no slouch: the inner and fly are held taut and separate, a must in wind and rain! The structure is simple, eliminating structural hubs for maximum strength and aerodynamic shaping, giving you confidence in powerful, gusty winds.


The tapered rectangular floor plan reduces weight, maximises usable internal space and provides protection when accessing the tent. When setting up the tent, the narrower foot end (black webbing) should face the prevailing wind, giving your pitch greater aerodynamic stability. Thanks to careful consideration of the door location and tent shape, the vestibule will then give protection from uncomfortable weather as you get in and out of the tent.


Both seriously handy and polite our doorman is seriously hand and polite. A flat loop sewn into the seam (both inside and out) to hold your inner door open, giving you wider access to the tent. It’s quick and easy to use and works well in cold conditions (and gloves hands) – no more fiddling around with toggles!! It’s easily spotted in well-dressed red, located on the inside and outside of the inner at each door.


We use a #5 YKK zip’s on the fly and inner doors because they’re durable and long lasting. Zips of this size are less likely to get clogged with dirt, catch and snag. The zips are also cleverly designed so the slider will wear out before the teeth: if you ever wear one out, it’s a quick fix. Dual sliders allow doors to be opened easily from either side, and closed tightly at night or during the mosquito hour. We use lighter #3 on the window of our Nylon inners.


Managing tent condensation requires good design, where details add up to big differences in performance. Our vents are shaped to prevent the entrance of wind-driven rain. The stiffeners keep the vents open in wind, but can be easily rolled during pack down. The vent hood overlaps the mesh underneath to prevent drips and block bugs, importantly generous spacing between the fly and the inner allows constant air flow (from the base up and out, like a chimney) to minimise moisture build-up.


Our guy lines and adjusters are seriously good, versatile and functional, allowing tents to be set up to fit the situation. Simply loop them around a peg or branch and tighten securely, locking off if necessary. The reflective cord is highly visible in the dark, useful for preventing late-night stumbles and in emergency situations. Guy lines slip neatly into their pockets when not in use or packing up: another example of attention to detail, simplified.


  • Dome structure fits in even the smallest camp site while maximising usable space.
  • Our tapered rectangular shape saves weight by eliminating obsolete space. (Set up with the foot end pointing into the prevailing wind for improved aerodynamic performance.)
  • The generous interior gives enough room to sit up – ideal!
  • Spacious vestibule easily stores a large-capacity bushwalking rucksack, important in poor weather.
  • Small storage hatch is accessible by reaching under the fly or through the half-moon door in the inner.
  • DAC poles in a crossover design give an architecturally solid structure to ensure reliability in high winds and rough weather.
  • We use DAC technical features to create a secure, reliable hold that’s quick to set up and pack down. (A DAC Ball Cap™ connects the inner and ridge pole, connected to the DAC SQ Ring™ sewn inside the fly.)
  • The ridge pole is designed to overhang the bathtub floor, creating a protective alcove to stops drips from rolling off the fly into the tent.
  • We choose DAC’s 9-millimetre diameter poles because they’re stronger than most while finding the sweet spot that balances weight, durability and strength.
  • We’ve eliminated troublesome structural pole hubs to make a fundamentally stronger tent with easy set up and awesome reliability in the field.
  • DAC twist-clip component allows quick and easy attachment of inners to poles without fiddly pole sleeves. The clips are extremely tough and durable thanks to their flat shape and moulded construction, and can be clipped on or off with one hand.
  • Fly is available in two materials: lightweight 7 D nylon or more durable 30 D polyester.
  • All ONE PLANET flies are seam sealed with tape in the factory so you don’t have to do it. The fabric has a sil/PU coating and a high water head, giving you protection in all conditions.
  • The inner walls are made from lightweight 15 D nylon with a light DWR treatment for improved warmth and condensation management.
  • Our Nylon inners feature multiple pockets on the side walls, so you can easily store (and find) your equipment. Who doesn’t love a pocket?
  • Micromesh window in the door allows you to manage the internal temperature efficiently. Triangular in shape to maximise ventilation without catching in the main door zip.
  • The thick, robust and highly waterproof floor Is coated with polyether urethane (PeU): it doesn’t wet out and is extremely resistant to mould, mildew and hydrolysis.
  • The single-piece floor doesn’t have a mid seam, removing a major water access point and improving durability.
  • Colour-coded webbing used on the fly and inner encourages quick and efficient set up in any conditions. (The grey webbing on the inner matches the grey webbing at the head of the fly, while the footer is black.)
  • Ventilation vents have steep access to allow air flow but not wind-driven rain. Leave them open for improved, hassle-free air flow.
  • When you roll up the fly door a gutter is formed, naturally catching and channelling rain away from the tent entrance.
  • ‘The Doorman’ is a flat loop sewn into the seam, used to hold the inner door open to make a bigger entrance. It’s red so it can be easily spotted, and it’s quick and easy to use, especially in cold conditions.
  • Internal loops allow you to hang a clothes line or mesh loft from the ceiling.
  • Guy lines and lightweight adjusters are simple and effective, with reflective rope and storage pockets to keep things neat and tidy.
  • Fly and inner bagged separately for easy packing in your rucksack or sharing between pals

Our story kicked off in 1979 when J&H was founded with a sewing machine, some proper scissors, a dollop of can-do attitude and a dash of youthful exuberance. The name was derived from the surnames of founders Steve Jamieson, Paul Harding and Lois Hunt. The company quickly gained a reputation for locally manufacturing quality gear that worked here.

In 1980 J&H began making rainwear, sleeping bags and down apparel in Queanbeyan, near Canberra. Designs were developed to suit the needs of bushwalkers, climbers, back-country skiers and mountaineers, including the introduction of the famous Bush Lite sleeping bag.

Two years later J&H imported machines for seam-sealing rainwear and Australian-made, three-layer membrane clothing entered the market. These technical garments encouraged bolder back-country adventures by keeping adventurers dry whilst maintaining breathability.

In 1984 our sleeping bag range was developed, focusing on cold-climate expeditions. (Who doesn’t love back-country skiing?) Our Winter Lite sleeping bag won an Australian Good Design award that year, and is still the pinnacle of our sleeping bag range. Throughout its many editions and updates, the best materials and components have always been used.

Inspired by the Winter Lite’s success, development and innovation continued with vigour, focusing on baffle design and construction. Baffle systems combining vertical and horizontal baffles were born, using highly technical, differentially-cut, vertical-orientated box-wall baffles to keep down trapped around your body, promoting warmth, full lofting and a warmer night’s sleep. We’re immensely proud of this development, now seen in many brands and sleeping bags around the world. And it all began in our corner of the world.

Our reputation continued to grow, and in 1985 we began supporting professionals in the outdoor industry as well as keen adventurers. Some of our earliest contract work was with National Park rangers, the Australian Antarctic Division, State Emergency Service, lifties and ski patrollers.


AiKing started small but is the driving force behind ONE PLANET today.

In 1988 AiKing founder Andrew King was working in the Mountain Designs store at 377 Little Bourke Street in Melbourne. It was hard to get outdoor gear repaired at the time, and it was gently suggested to Andrew that he was better at repairing products than he was at selling them… Using a borrowed desk and sewing machine, the 18-year-old began AiKing Equipment.

A vast number of repairs began flowing across the desk, heading back to the outdoors tougher, cleaner and better. Andrew rented the top floor of 377 Little Bourke and soon began manufacturing gear as well as repairing it.

Andrew’s lifelong passion was born: he wanted to not only repair gear, but also design and manufacture it better. His on-the-job apprenticeship gave him an intimate knowledge of construction techniques and pattern making, as well as a commitment to excellent workmanship and customer service. Every piece of gear was cherished and loved, much like it is today… If only our gear could talk.


AiKing Equipment began producing catalogues and building custom equipment. Soon, its branded gear was spotted across the Victorian Alps: rucksacks of various sizes, tough gaiters, spacious stuff sacks and accessories.

AiKing’s reputation grew into the 1990s, and contracts for custom work rolled in. From this came the first batch of Outdoor Education rucksacks.

Like many young Australians, lots of Andrew’s early outdoor experiences were through school and university groups. He’s always had a soft spot for Outdoor Education: helping young people enjoy and respect the outdoors is an honour.

ONE PLANET® continues to have a major focus on Outdoor Education. Today we offer a range of tents, rucksacks, gaiters, rainwear, accessories and apparel specifically designed for young people and outdoor educators.


In 1992 AiKing moved into a new Melbourne factory in Flemington. This allowed more staff, streamlined production and the continued development of innovative Australian outdoor equipment.

J&H were still making gear in Queanbeyan. In 1993 they opened a manufacturing plant in New Zealand, mostly producing apparel and down sleeping bags, where they continued to make down wear and rainwear until 2000.

In 1995 AiKing merged with Adventure Designs. This Melbourne-based company (headed by Tim Campbell and Kevin Chappell) designed and imported sleeping mats, tents and screen shelters. In keeping with the highly corporate nature of the enterprise, the merger was done on a scrap of paper, in pencil!

By 1997 ONE PLANET® (formally J&H) joined the mix. As of 1 October 1997, the ONE PLANET® company was known as Adventure One Pty Ltd trading as ONE PLANET®, as it still is today.

ONE PLANET® now had world-leading local manufacturing in both New Zealand and Australia, strong ties to high-end overseas resources, years of experience in design and pattern making, and brilliant, intuitive, passionate leaders. The mergers allowed the range to expand and the company’s thinkers, tinkerers and creators to share ideas.

These were exciting years, summed up by the company’s new slogan: ‘ONE PLANET®: discover it!’


Adventure One Pty Ltd trading as ONE PLANET® was restructured in 2000, selling the clothing factory in New Zealand. The company refocused on its core range: sleeping bags, rucksacks, tents and rainwear.


On 24 November 2004, a small electrical fault resulted in a massive blaze that completely destroyed the ONE PLANET® factory.

Everything burned: the building, the machinery, raw materials, the designs and patterns. All that remained was a mess of charcoal and 23 dedicated, talented staff.

The destruction of ONE PLANET®’s only factory was a crossroads for owners Kevin and Andrew. Most local brands had moved their production offshore, and there was pressure to do the same. Instead, the decision was made to rebuild the factory in Melbourne, maintain the company’s fierce dedication to local manufacturing, and focus on developing high-end outdoor equipment specifically for our conditions.

On 12 December 2004 – less than three weeks after the fire – the contract for the current factory in Sunshine was signed. Painting and refurbishments began the next day.

We bought ONE PLANET® products back from shops and unpicked them for use as base patterns. We became more efficient, buying new, ultra-low energy machines, improving our lighting and layout. And Ralph – our brilliant, eccentric, sewing-machine mechanic – rebuilt his famous canvas-binding machines. We then reordered our favourite materials and got back to work.

It was the perfect time to improve designs. We updated the EXACT FIT® harness so it fitted a wider range of people, producing four women’s and four men’s fit options as standard – a world first.

With the help and understanding of our staff, suppliers and customers, our first rucksacks were manufactured and sent out to shops eight weeks after the fire.


There were positives from the fire, in hindsight at least! One of these was the opportunity to decrease the company’s environmental impact significantly.

ONE PLANET® slowly but steadily rose from the ashes, continually expanding the range of gear produced until it was back to normal business. In the background the company tightened up business practices and philosophies, increasing the focus on environmental and social sustainability.

ONE PLANET® began carbon offsetting all electricity used within our factory from 2006. This was a first for the outdoor industry, and is something we proudly continue today.


The first generation of Goondie series tents were released in 2012, developed specifically for diverse Australian conditions by keen Aussie bushwalkers. Their design was inspired by our earlier lightweight tents and many, many thoughts, ideas and discussions on the track. From the get-go we knew we wanted options for 1, 2 and 3 people, with the ability to mix and match. You can choose a Mesh inner for better ventilation or a warmer Nylon inner; a lightweight nylon fly or a tougher, polyester all-rounder.


In 2015, the ONE PLANET® business went direct to consumers for the first time in decades, opening as an e-commerce website. (Previously the site was used as an informative online catalogue.)

Late that same year we had another pivotal moment, opening a shop at 355 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne. A lot had changed since Andrew started AiKing on the same strip 20 years earlier. Apartments and office towers grew side by side, restaurants lined the small streets, and coffee and breakfast had taken over every laneway. Fortunately, the strip of classic outdoor shops in Little Bourke Street remained, and ONE PLANET® neatly joined in.

2024 & BEYOND

ONE PLANET® has always been run by people who love the outdoors, gear and adventure.

Today we are still passionate about testing and improving our gear and using it to explore our unique, wonderful environments, and we’re committed to upholding our social and environmental responsibilities.
