Excellent tent all round. Strong (proper) canvas, loads of space, very heavy duty groundsheet. Takes a bit of getting used to putting it up (really needs two people minimum) but we worked out that if you start with the back and pull it out forwards it works well. Should last for years!

Wow, what a fantastic tent! We had a good look at a number of tents before buying and really went for this because of the robustness and feeling of quality with everything that you touch. The zips are almost industrial in feel, the groundsheet is heavy duty and feels like it would withstand real flooding. While we have only just started using it on a relatively nice bank holiday, I would feel confident that it would withstand some serious weather conditions and you'd feel very warm and snug inside.
There are plenty of guy ropes (luminous so you don't trip over them at night), the ventilation is good and can be closed in colder weather (useful on the first night which dropped to 5 degrees!), the poles are easy to fit and strong. Given the canopy doesn't come all the way down on each side, is good for cooking in poor weather (we had a table just to the side allowing us to stand in cover with cooking smoke not coming in to the tent). Finally, both sides can be opened up which in hot weather would be good for additional ventilation.

On the downside, given the robustness of the tent (Polycotton, aluminium poles) it is both big and heavy to transport. However, doesn't distract from the tent itself.

Can't wait for my next trip!

This tent has a good feel to it being canvas and therefore not prone to condensation. It is also quieter than other fabrics when there is a breeze or it is raining. The tunnel design is extremely stable in stormy weather. It is easy to erect as I have often done so single handed although it helps if you are tall. The groundsheet which is of heavy duty material zips in giving exellent protection from unwanted intruders.
Six windows give a light and airy feel with plenty of ventilation. With the curtains down it offers a private roomy living area where there is plenty of space for a table and chairs and space for storage. The sleeping pods are fitted with two way zips for quick entry and exit.
This tent is sold as a 6 man tent but I would not want to sleep more than 4 adults in the pods. There is however plenty of room in the living area for a further two people to sleep comfortably. The crowning glory of this tent is the front canopy under which there is ample room to sit sheltered from the sun or rain.
All in all a safe, secure and roomy family tent which is a joy to be in.

Manufacturer's Description

The superb multitude of tinted windows in the Panorama front not only guarantees excellent all-round views but it also instantly draws attention to the stunning new
Bear Lake 6. This popular tent is made from our unique Outtex® Airtech polycotton with alloy poles housed in flat pole sleeves, and a Zip-out colour-coordinated groundsheet. Good looks are emphasised by the Outwell Floating Guyline System while the Outwell Wind Stabilizer and Easy Pegging Systems add weight to security and easy pitching. This tent sleeps six in two bedrooms that not only sport the new stripe finish and feature the new Outwell Wave-shaped Hanging Point System but also Low Light window so that you can check the weather from the comfort of your sleeping bag. The tent has a Zip-off canopy that has our new storm guylines for wind-beating performance.
