Difficult compromise

This Outwell Tent has caused us to waste a lot of time trying it, it would we a great Tent in reasonable conditions but when the winds get to around 30 mph, I would recommend you pack up and go home. I have camped for 30 years and have not been defeated by the weather but this tent failed at about 35 mph wind and also rainy conditions. Well under the 55 mph claimed by Outwell, it may well survive 55 mph in Dry conditions, but in soggy ground the plastic pegging system didn't hold for us, causing the fibre glass poles to snap in multiple sections and the tent to become a large sail very quickly. Luckily this happened to us in the daytime and we were able to get it down. For fine weather camping this is a lovely spacious tent of average quality finish. But to rely on in all weathers beware. We returned this tent and brought a Wild Country Family Khamsin, as we knew we could pop it up in the wilds an not worry in windy conditions.

Bought Nevada m as a weekend tent as I own a Montana 6 but is too much work to put up for two nights, first off thought the wind stabilizing velcro was a good idea as was the inner pole to give the front extra strength, bedrooms large and airy as was whole of tent really, rain canopy on side was a bit small to be practical though. Only problem we had was put front extension on and when wind got up it put a lot off bend on tent so be careful of this. All in all it is a great weekend tent and proves you get what you pay for.

We bought a Nevada M a couple of months ago and have just used it for an 8 night camp. First of all I am going to explain why we picked this tent because it covers most of the key points.

For the last three years we have been camping in an Outwell Oregon 5, we have loved this tent and have not had a problem with it. That is until Eatser 2012 when it was wet and cold and the lack of a SIG was clearly noticed. When we got home I wrote down all the things we love about the Oregon 5 and the things we would like to change,

Love

Three pole tunnel tent

Easy to erect

Fits in one reasonably sized bag

3/2 bedroom opening into one room

Need to change

Carpet gets wet all the time when entering tent

No SIG so can be drafty

Very big slope on front means lots of space lost

I then went searching for a new tent. I have to admit that I like Outwell tents, I did look at others but all along I thought I would buy another Outwell and I did. As soon as I saw the Nevada M online I knew it was the tent for us. It ticked all boxes as far as the good and bad of the Oregon were concerned.

We have just spent 8 wonderful nights in it, I admit we took it to a campsite 4 hours from home without having checked it out but it was perfect. We are a family of three and for us the size is just right. I would not want to have 4 or 5 people in there as I don't think there is enough room.

I did not buy the carpet, partly because I don't like the brown circle carpet and because it is a similar size to the Oregon 5 so we used that carpet. The Oregon is only 3m wide and the Nevada 3.6m so we had a 1 foot gap at each size. No problem as at one side we had a doormat and all the shoes and at the other a cupboard and two boxes so you could hardly see that the carpet was slightly too small.

We are very very happy with this tent, even hubby who is not into camping as much sat in it and told me he loved it. We also have the enclosed awning but I will review that in the right place :)

We have had this tent for a couple of years and have found it to be very good, standing up to very high winds last year and very heavy rain this year, with only a little rain penetration around one zipp area. Will fix that with some Fabsil.

Overall we are pleased with it and have just bought an extention. Shop around for the best price.

We have a Nevada M & bought it based on reviews here. We use it for just 2 of us as it gives us ample living space. It is pretty easy to put up however our eyebrow canopy pole recently snapped & it has always felt too big for the tent. I like the fact that there are lots of windows allowing plenty of light in during the day.We have also bought the front extension which is a god send in wet weather. I cook in the extension & it's big enough for 2 people to sit in comfortably & again allows lots of light in. However we have found it tricky to put up & recently the material tore slightly on one of the sleeves.The extension is trickier to put up than the rent. It looks good once it is up & is very sturdy in strong wind & rain. Overall a good buy.

After purchasing this tent earlier this year and using it for the first time Begining of August. The tent itself was fantastic. The only down side was the PLASTIC pegs that came with it, Which tend to bend or split even in soft ground. I have taken this up with Outwell and received a reply which read 'Dear Darin, thank you for your e-mail.Unfortunately we always recommend that you use pegs that are suited to the place you take your holidays.That is also why you will find the pegs are weak as they are not made for anything other than soft luxury camping grounds. We wish you a nice day'. I think this is a pretty poor excuse on Outwell's behalf as I have already said the tent is a 10 out of 10. Only being let down badly by the pegs. Come on Outwell sort this out.

We have used this tent for a couple of years and have had no problems. It is roomy for 2 adults and 2 children. We have purchased the extension and porch giving us plenty of room to sit and cook when the weather is not so good.

The footprint is also a useful purchase to keep the base of the tent clean and aids in packing up.

The tent is easy to pitch and I have completed this on my own.

Overall we are very pleased with the tent.

I bought this after reading lots of reviews of lots of tents and after it's first outing am very pleased.

Firstly it comes in a surprisingly large bag which is quite heavy, but I got over my surprise and will keep the poles separate in future to help with the weight thing.

I am a single mother with 2 children age 8 and 10, and wanted:

1. Bedrooms side-by-side as we all got restless/uneasy being opposite sides of the old tent

2. Easy to put up and down for 1 adult with a little bit of child-help!

3. High enough to stand as stooping does my back in

4. Good-sized living space for yukky weather

This tent delivers on all these:

2. I put the tent up for the first time on holiday, having watched YouTube clips and having a mental plan. I pegged out the corners first then did the poles. Took a bit of a heave, could have done with a breeze to help!, but really do-able with 1 adult and 2 children just standing with their feet up against the pole on the other side whilst I put it in the key-thing (sorry the right words are evading me today)

4. Living space exceeded expectation, it was a bit tardis-like in that it seemed much bigger inside than expected, and than it appears.

Also:

- 10 or so pockets inside, really handy for stuff, I had one for matches, sun lotion, plastic bags, first aid kit.

- built-in groundsheet, good at keeping draughts, rain and spiders out

- bug-nets handy on the doors

- guy ropes and pegs nice and bright

- 3 doors, good for creating draughts and letting in light or blocking it as the sun moves round

- 1 door has a shelter over it, useful for the rain

- it went down pretty easily too and rolled into the bag fine

I'm not sure about.

- the plastic pegs. Nice and light I guess, but just not sure.

- the 'wind system', which is extra velcro wrapping around the poles. I found a few bugs in them when taking the tent down and what appeared to be the beginnings of a cocoon thing.

- is it my imagination or are there just LOADS of guy ropes?

- the tent was tied up in a bow in the bag, more like a gift set of towels! straps with adjusters would make MUCH more sense

- similar with the peg and pole bags, they would be better with traditional tightening woggly thingies (sorry again) instead of just loose string.

All-in-all, a good solid tent which I can put up and take down without too much stress and quite quickly and really good space inside.

We visited Go Outdoors many times looking inside all the tents and finally settled on the Nevada M. One of the reasons for this was that on the last visit it was a scorching day, lovely bright sunshine but each of the cheaper tents we went into felt so hot we were sweating within seconds of entering, but the Outwell kept its cool.

We found a local campsite and took it down for its first outing last weekend and are very happy with our purchase. Not long after getting the groundsheet pinned out and laying out the tent we had a downpour, so we ran back into the car and waited for the rain to ease. Whilst there we had a look on You Tube via a mobile phone to watch an Outwell video of a chap pitching the tent to make the process that bit smoother.

Soon enough we were back to it. It was very easy for 2 people to put up, the colour coded poles were great. But I think having watched the video really helped us as we'd not have known otherwise to only beg in the back of the tent and pull all of it forward once all the poles were in to take its shape. This might be inexperience on our part, but that knowledge helped a great deal.

Once up we realised that rain had gotten in whilst it was laid out flat, which is not an Outwell fault, but again a result of our inexperience, we should have persevered and got wet ourselves so that rain couldn't have gotten in through the ventilation areas.

We mopped up the rain and we were off. It rained a lot more overnight but not a drop was found inside the tent in the morning.

Lots of room in the bedroom for a double airbed, the spare room acted as a great storage area leaving the main living area feeling very spacious, even with a table and 2 chairs in there. We bought the carpet and this gave a feeling of luxury underfoot and is a great buy.

Because of the rain we had to time our BBQ and so I think i'll be buying the extension soon to allow us that sheltered outdoor space for wet/ windy weather.

All in all, this is a great tent, and it's definitely worthwhile paying that bit more for the quality you get with an Outwell compared with 'high street' brands.

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.
