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 can’t 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 I’m 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). I’ve 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 – 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 won’t 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.

Just fantastic! Spacious, can be erected in 15 minutes, great access, hard-wearing - perfect for our needs and brilliant value for money! Every time we camp, we get compliments from other campers who are impressed by the ease of putting it up and the layout. We really love this tent and will get another when this needs replacing, but I imagine that is some way off as it is such good quality!

Excellent tent by Outwell, we have tried other makes of tents but always come back to Outwell. There are 3 of us in our family, so the Nevada m provides enough room for us all. We also have a lot of kit with us.

It is so easy to pitch my husband can do this on is own or with our help. It takes us about 15 to 20 minutes depending on weather conditions to pitch (thats from footprint to carpet inside tent).

The bedrooms are plenty big enough but I would not like to sleep any more than 3 in this tent, as we like room to move about. The tent is well vented and there are plenty of windows to look through on those wet days.

Being as it goes up as one saves time on putting it up and taking it down. When taking it down remember to not zip your doors up fully, this always for the trapped air to escape quicker.

Excellent Tent, well vented, 3 doors so you can really open it up, 3 layers to the doors, outer with window inner privacy screen and inner fly screen - 2 sleeping compartments which can be zipped out to make 1 big one as we do - fully sewn in ground sheet so no bugs and electrical hook up entry point and cabling system - easy to pitch well made and plenty of accessories we have the carpet extra footprint and windscreen - all makes for an excellent choice - Outwell quality as well.

We've just come back from our second camping trip in this tent. Generally we are very happy with it.

There are only two of us and we love the space it provides inside, we always travel with a lot of kit, so having the spare cabin to store all our clothes and activity gear is great. One of the deciding factors for purchasing this tent was the 'panoramic' window effect -which is great when the weather outside is particularly bad and you just want to sit in with a tea and the newspaper and watch the world go by.

I agree with the comments about the doors, it did prove to be very draughty on one of our colder windy camping trips. But being bug phobic I did like the zip around net curtains.

We had very strong winds on our recent camping trip and the front extension didn't bare well. It was unfortunately pitched so that the wind blew straight into it causing a tunnel wind effect. We eventually took it down, fearing it would be torn down by the wind. The tent was fine in the high winds though.

All in all we're very happy with this tent, and hope to use it for many years.

Manufacturer's Description

This compact tunnel tent sleeps up to five in two bedrooms. Huge windows, backed by toggle-up curtains, ensure plenty of light enters the tent and great views out. This is enhanced by the panorama front that also provides even more space. The looks are further lifted by the use of the new Treetop Green colourway of our own Outtex 4000® tent fabric. The Nevada can be pitched either outer tent first or all in one. This is further simplified by the addition of the Outwell Easy Pegging System. The unique Outwell Wind Stabilizer System provides even more stability in up to Force 9 gales. A Rain-safe door keeps out water when access is required in bad weather. The tent is packed with Outwell DNA features like pre-attached luminous guylines. The inners have the new chic logo-embossed fronts and Night Sky Ceiling to aid sleep.
