We brought this tent in the winter sales for a vastly discounted price and could not be happier with our purchase. Used twice so far this year for long weekends the tent has stood up well to wind and rain and the large living space at the front fitted the 3 tier cooking unit, large box of food, dog, 3 children and 3 adults all on chairs sat round a long table - which was fortunate considering the rain!

Fully sewn in - a fabulous feature when the wasps are out in force - the tent is warm and dry with a good amount of sleeping space which can be in two separate areas (3 & 2) or all as one. Opened into one area you can comfortably fit in a double air bed, single air bed and a metal camp bed, with space by each bed and room for the dog too.

Erecting the tent for the second time ever this weekend we the tent was pitched and the kettle was on within an hour. If it had been raining the tent would have been ready to shelter in within 20 minutes - that's with two people pitching and a child helping out with the undoing of the guide ropes.

The number of doors is a real bonus making the decision on direction of pitch much easier. We have had no problems with the rain porch yet but have had issues getting the tension right on that side of the tent at the base but I discovered this was user error and after messing with the tension for a bit the floor was flat.

Another family were using this tent with the canopy and if we had the funds we would certainly purchase one, it looked very sturdy, and provided a lot of extra space which would be handy when away for longer than a long weekend.

If I had to replace this tent tomorrow I would go out and buy the same one again as I am very happy with it.

After much deliberation, We bought this tent along with the front extension, footprint and carpet. We took it for its first run out to Mason's campsite in Appletreewick. After watching the manufacturer's video a few times, it was very easy to put up.

In our party there was 2 adults and three kids (10, 11 and 11) and the sleeping areas proved adequate for us all.

I would definitely recommend getting the extension and carpet for extra comfort and space. Also the footprint is great for keeping the sewn in ground sheet dry and clean.

We had a good deal of rain during our stay and the Nevada M coped really well. There was quite a bit of condensation on the windows and over the sleeping area in the mornings but the sleeping pods were warm and snug, though the fabric on the entrance to them could do with being stronger (we noticed a few tiny slits in the fabric of one of the pods which looked like something had caught on it)

The flysheets did a great job of keeping out the midges.

As we had the front extension, we kept the side doors shut the whole time and just used the front ones. Had it have been warmer and dryer, it would have been nice to open the side doors to allow the air to circulate.

The big windows made it feel spacious and airy inside.

We are looking forward to using it again in sunnier weather!

We are pleased with this tent, although, this year we have felt it a little small for ourselves and our growing children; each time we use it, it seems a little smaller. I can't really imagine 4 or 5 full sized adults in it, never mind in the sleeping areas, the living area is becoming a little cramped too. This year, we have also invested in the extension, which was definitely a good purchase, as we knew the weather was going to be particularly poor on our first camping trip this year, but we have used it again as it offers so much extra space and is now used as the camp kitchen.

I notice this time too that there was less baggage space for us, as we have had to buy some new airbeds and they are bigger than the ones we have replaced, so there is not much space at all now in the bedrooms. So, stick to narrower airbeds if you like some space around you.

I have no complaints at all about any of it's features; the zips never get stuck and there are plenty of doors. The panoramic windows and doors are an attractive feature. One of my favourite features are the useful pockets which house all the bits and bobs that would normally get lost around the tent or left on the table in the middle taking up any space!

We find it quicker and quicker to put the tent up, and it's pretty easy anyway. It's very sturdy in bad weather and doesn't leak, although if the layers are touching when it rains, the wetness will come through. The footprint and the carpet are also good buys to go with this tent.

Overall, not bad at all for not a bad price.

I own and use a Nevada M, quite a lot. I go on camping trips almost every weekend, and often midweek too.

This tent does not let me down. Gales, heavy rain. It copes.

It is spacious and easy to erect (I do so on my own).

Provision of pockets in the various walls helps to keep things tidy. It's storm door is just great when it is raining. Three doors allows for excellent ventilation and access no matter what the orientation of things are.

I also bought the kitchen extension. This is fantastic on nice days or in rain BUT in high winds take it down!

It is like a huge open mouth. Nothing you can do to keep it down if you happen to be facing the wind.

I recently bought a quick pop up tent for short overnight trips. I made sure it was an Outwell too!

We were looking for a good quality family tent, in which we could be comfortable in. This Outwell ticks all of our boxes. We have never camped before, so I did a bit of research before we bought the Nevada M. As a family of three, we wanted to make sure my son had his own room, because he's only 4 I didn't like the idea of him sleeping in a pod, across the other side of the tent from us. With the Nevada M we have the peace of mind he's right next door to us, I have the option to open the adjoining wall if we choose to do so.

As we have never put a tent up before, this was a piece of cake to put up and take down, we did watch the manufacturer video which really helped. There is lots of living space inside the tent, and with 3 openings your spoilt for choice. The ventilation was great, nothing felt damp in the morning. The bedrooms are a good size, although I think if there was 5 of you sleeping in it you would have to be good friends. It's just right for 2 adults and 1 to 2 children. The Outwell Nevada M was the best tent for us. We really enjoyed camping in it and can't wait to get out in it again.

Bought this for weekends away with the kids. Easy to put up and take down. Loads of room for us, we bought the front extension which proved valuable when cooking in poor weather! No problems with leaks or draughts.Our only criticism would be that plastic pegs have bent and buckled after only 2 trips. (but that might be my husbands heavy hands!)

What a great tent, I have owned a similar tent by sunncamp, and a larger tunnel tent also from sunncamp, but this is by far the better tent. Due to damage to the older 2 tents, I had to go shopping for a newer model, and out of all that I had looked at, I settled on the Nevada M tent. I am 6'5 tall, and to be able to stand up in a tent is a must have for me, and in this one I can, although not so much in the bedrooms, it is still ok for me.

The bedrooms are really quite versatile, as a couple camping, we stayed in the larger of the 2 rooms, and used the second room as storage/wardrobe, which kept the living area clear, although there was some things still in there.

The partition between the rooms, opens to create one large room, though as other have mentioned there is a small upright of the divider left on the floor, but really I'm not sure why you would want to sleep in separate rooms, but each to their own. As two adults in the main room there was plenty of space. The spare room also has another zip going all the way round it, and I found out that this will actually unclip away from the outer skin, roll up and fasten to the main bedroom on the floor of the tent, in effect creating a 1 room tent, with even more storage area.

The very handy storage area between the rooms, is as it says on the tin, very handy.

I loved the fact that all the doors had the fly screen attached, and found it no great hardship to open the screens to roll up the windows to then fasten the screens again.

Having said that I also purchased the front extension, and basically lived under this for the 1st weekend that I have just spent in the tent, watching the world go by through the 2 very large windows either side of the extension. Though like others, I'm not sure I would use this in high winds.

Very easy to put up and very easy to put down, though I did watch a video first, and thought that I was experienced at erecting a tent, I failed to read the instructions and hints/tips about opening the doors before putting up and putting down, next time I will certainly do this as this will make all the difference ha ha but this was my only mistake with it.

Over all for a couple, this tent is definitely a winner

We bought this tent from Millets, with a money off voucher and I have to say its one of the best purchases I have ever made.

For just me, hubby and dog it has loads of space, it is very well made, and took us just 20 mins to put up.

Over the weekend, we had rain, wind and sun, and it stood up to the rain and wind with no problems.

I would recommended this tent.

Love this tent , its brilliant, had a gelert horizon before, which was great but we like this better.

With the bedroom closed we put a chair each with table in the middle , the tent shape flows well, nothing seems to get in the way, there always seems to be enough places to put stuff. The view is panoramic with windows shut, the bedroom huge, and we can walk inside without brushing our head on the entrance , perfect. One day we might get a shape like this in cotton.

The only thing to watch is the side entrance door sewn in ground sheet is high and you have to pick up lazy feet over it , or you will go flying out the door like me , which hurts!

We bought this tent last July and the more we camp in it the more we enjoy it. We particularly like the bedroom sizes/configuration as the 3 berth room makes an ideal double and the double berth room makes an ideal single. As with all tents the recommendation of a 5 berth would be far too cramped, but as a 3 berth (2 adults and one child) it is superb. Our only niggle with this tent has been the rain safe door which can put a big strain on the mesh door/zip (more about this in my review later *2009 Model Only). If you are after a good sized 3 berth family tent, then you canít get much better than the Nevada M.

When we initially bought the tent we had not been camping for at least 20 years and it had features that I did not necessarily understand or see as necessary. However after several camping trips I can now identify lots of things that are great in the design and Iím so pleased that they are included.

SIG: Sewn in Groundsheet, this is a great feature as it seals you from the outside world. You are free from draughts, bugs/insects and the rain.

Mesh Doors: Fantastic feature! You can have all three doors open with the mesh doors closed, which creates a really good air flow without filling the tent with flying creatures or insects.

Three Opening Doors: One great feature of the Nevada M is that it has three opening doors. Even though it is nylon tent it does stay remarkably cool when the three doors are open (mesh doors closed). Iíve noticed this when visiting tent exhibitions as well, the Nevada is definitely a cooler nylon tent.

Good Ventilation: The Nevada has several ventilation points which all combine to help reduce condensation in the tent and help cool the tent in warmer weather. Most of the ventilation openings can be individually opened or closed.

Guy Rope Ties: I have appreciated this feature more and more as we have erected and dismantled the tent. It seems a fairly pointless feature at first but it is great for keeping the guys neat and tidy when packing the tent away.

Rain Safe Door (2009 models). Before I start, can I just mention that all 2010 models have had a complete redesign of the rain safe door and as far as I can see Outwell have now eliminated any problems. On the 2010 models the Rain Safe Canopy is much bigger and the attachment point for the rain safe door pole has completely changed.

Rain Safe Door: On the 2009 model some people have complained of too much tension on the Rain Safe Door caused by the door canopy pole. On our first pitch of the tent we did not experience this problem at all but have on other occasions. Interestingly enough we were back at the original campsite where we 1st pitched the tent this weekend and again we were tension free. My belief is that the problem is caused by the way in which the tent is pitched and most importantly of all is whether the pitch is completely level. On each occasion (only twice) where we have had excessive tension on the mesh zip door it has been on sites with a slightly sloping pitch. On both occasions we did not use the door. This has been the only niggling problem with the tent.

Set up Time: At a very leisurely pace my wife and I can have the footprint, tent, carpet, canopy and all wardrobes kitchen; beds etc unloaded and fully set up within 2 hours. The tent itself can be up within 10-15 mins and fully pegged and guyed within 30-40mins.

Doors Curtain/Mesh: Some people have mentioned that it can be a bit of pain with the curtain being in the middle of outside door and mesh door. As we only ever have the doors open with the mesh door closed or the main door fully closed (with the curtain down) we have not felt annoyed by this but understand that people do. One thing that we did find initially confusing was all the hanging toggles on the doors. With more and more practice we have got used to this and again have actually found the feature very useful.

Strong Winds: We camped in Cornwall last August in very strong winds, once the tent is up and fully peg and guyed the tent is very stable in the wind. One thing about Outwell tents they do seem to have a lot of guy rope points! As this tent has fibreglass poles, the most likely time to get a breakage is when erecting or dismantling the tent especially if it is windy. We lost two poles this way last August but a bit of Gaffa tape got me through the holiday until we could repair the poles on our return home.

Additional items to buy (Recommended)

Front Canopy Ė makes the tent so more usable as you have somewhere to cook and eat if the weather is not so good. Highly recommended

Ground Sheet: As the tent has a SIG (sewn in groundsheet) this is a definite must buy/make item as it keeps the bottom of your tent clean. It also gives you clean surface to work on when erecting and dismantling the tent. It is great aid in helping you to choose the ideal pitching spot for your tent as it gives the exact footprint size for your tent. You can easily move it around until you are happy about your final tent location on your pitch.

Carpet: This one has been a bit of a strange one. I always thought it was more of a luxury and a unecesary item but after having bought one and used it several times I would now class it as an essential must buy. It just makes the tent feel so much better and is way nicer on your feet in the morning/evening rather than standing on the plastic SIG. If you have not got one, get one. You really wonít regret it.

We have gone from liking this tent to loving it. We have been impressed by some of the design features which you really start to appreciate the more and more you use it, which to me has to be a sign of good design. Well done Outwell.
