1 Reviews of the Birdland M

By: Wanderer  Reason: I've used one  Made in: 2014   Rating:   Date: 14/04/2014

Just used the Outwell Birdland M for the first time. I got it pitched on my own in about 20 mins (not including all the guys) on quite a gusty day without problem. The only rain I had while away was one squall when it rained and blew hard but the tent took it all in its stride.

The quality seemed good and living space was excellent for 1 person and would be perfectly adequate for 2 and a child but above that I think it would be tight. The bedroom had plenty of space for a double mattress plus a toilet, cases etc. With enough headroom for me to just stand up (5' 10') in the centre, at the front.

The only door had a zip across the bottom to make a complete seal and also a zipped net for those warm nights. Perhaps the 2 downsides I can see at present are firstly there is limited ventilation and the front door net might well be needed on warm nights, secondly the door only has a 'J' shaped zip so opening as a stable type door is only possible at a diagonal which I think you would need to do in wet conditions as the door canopy looks like it would be unlikely to always protect the bottom half of door from rain driving in.

I also pitched the extension which again I did on my own in gusty conditions by first clipping it to the tent and then fitting the Duratec poles and then pulling out and securing with the front guys. This is not the way the instructions advise but seemed to work well. I think the extension, which gives an extra 2m of covered space, will be a big bonus for cooking etc. When there are 2 of us using the tent. The extension also stood up well to the gusty winds and there is a good seal between the tent and it for those wet days.

Think we might have found a good compromise of a tent for me to use on my own for a short break and for the two of us, with the extension up, on longer stays.
