I have used this tent once this year and found it easy to put up single handed only took about 35 minutes. There is plenty of space and a good headroom. The only small comment I would make is that the front door slopes so that the rain can fall in the tent when you are entering or leaving. But all in all a very good buy. I am looking forward to using it more this coming year.

Just purchased the Birdland for weekend use as our Outwell Ohio takes too long to put up.We pitched in 10 mins. Excellent tent for 2 people .Our king size bed fitted perfectly in the bedroom.Only niggle would be the cable inlet which is too near the entrance ,should be to one side, otherwise a perfect little tent.Heard from a supplier that an extension is available next year which would make a good cooking area .Can't wait to go camping again!

This thing is so waterproof we've had the living area float! This last trip it has seen it's first strong winds, and I can say it is as if my Montana 6 shrunk in the wash, because it was just as sturdy. Goes up in 15 mins or under with 2 adults, the huge windows make it feel bigger than it is once you're set up. The one and only thing I would change would be to add another door to the side to create air flow and dry it out more quickly, because it's so quick and easy it's not impracticable as a touring tent. I agree with the previous reviewer, 10 more cm on the bedroom and you would be able to rotate a double mattress, that said there is still room to stand and dress with the mattress in place. A well designed little tent over all.

We have now used the Outwel Birdland for several weekends and also for a stay of 5 nights. It takes around 30 minutes to erect the tent although we have not done this in adverse weather conditions. We like the tent and it seems a good size for 2 people. We have used it in the rain and it did not let in however it does not seem possible to tension the main roof in such a way as no puddles form. Whilst the pooling of water is small it is a concern that they are there and does delay the drying of the tent. It has not yet been tested in high winds. On the whole we are pleased with the tent and think it is most appropriate for us.

A really great tent for 2 people. There's good space for a double lilo. 2 bags and still a little standing room in the bedroom. At 6'1' I could just stand up in the bedroom and the living area has a lot more height. It was easy to erect and can be done by one person on a calm day. Quality was up to Outwell's usual standards and there's lots of good features on the tent with cable entries and lots of possible combinations for opening the door or vents. Have only used it for a weekend but could comfortably manage a week in it or a fortnight at a pinch.The half drop curtains are a nice feature. One does feel slightly exposed when the door is rolled up as all the living area feels open to the rest of the campsite. It missed out on 10/10 because of the bedroom dimensions. If the width of the bedroom had been 1.9m or 2.0m then one can place the lilo in ANY direction. As it is, you can only turn it through 180 degrees. Still a very comfortable, quality tent.

Manufacturer's Description

The smallest of the Birdland tents sleeps up to three in a single bedroom that leads on to a spacious living area. The tent is made from our own Outtex® 4000 outer tent fabric and benefits from our fresh new Foliage Green colour with contrasting roof and trademark Outwell stripes. The outer first or all-in-one pitching is easy thanks to the steel and Duratec pole Outwell Extended Frame System and the addition of the Outwell Easy Pegging System that ensures the right peg for the job is quickly located. Risk of tripping is reduced through our pre-attached luminous guylines and our Outwell Wind Stabiliser System provides market-leading stability in up to Force 9 gales. Other features include: heavy duty Outwell zips, organiser pockets, lamp holder and cable tidies, adjustable pegging points, and reinforcement patches on all stress points.

Recommendation: Generous headroom and general space makes this compact, easy-to-pitch tent the popular choice for families of up to three who take a simpler approach to camping. An ideal touring tent.
