An expensive beast of a tent, but I'm really pleased with it after 3 pitches and pack ups.
Being polycotton, we really noticed how cool it was in hot weather. But also how much quieter it seemed. The material seemed to absorb sound a lot better than polyester.
It's a hybrid tent so it the 3 back beams are air filled. The front beam, and porch are both steel poles. It would have been better to have all air, but no such tent with these dimensions and features seem to exist so we compromised. To be fair, the poles don't add too much time to the pitch as they feed into the sleeves very easily. However, they obviously take slightly longer at pack up time than just opening the air valves.
Lots of pegging points and guy lines, probably due to the size does mean it takes quite a while to pitch. Perhaps some of these are overkill in pleasant weather, but after paying such a lot for the tent, we weren't prepared to take any risks.
The tent has a full SIG, two side entrances with full mesh & two external cable entry points for EHU making it simple no matter which direction you choose to pitch. Cable tidies lead from both entry points to the central lantern hanging point as well.
It also has a sizeable zip-on porch with an toggle/zip ground sheet which we used as our kitchen/dining area. One negative point is the zip handle on the porch came away on only it's second use. Upon further inspection we noticed this zip isn't the same quality as other zips in the tent. We will be taking this up with Outwell separately. But in the meantime, we made do with a carabiner as a temporary solution.
One feature I liked was the fact that the tent groundsheet can be zipped down flat at the front entrance to the porch, so if you choose to have the tent open, you're not at risk of tripping over the lip.
This feature is also available on the groundsheet in the porch so I was able to sweep crumbs out the front door easily. However, I always remembered to do the zips back up in case of rain.
All curtains in both the tent and the porch were zip up, which is a nice feature; and both side doors also had a zip up window to let more light in if you don't necessarily want the doors open.
I did find the zips on the front of the tent leading into the porch a bit of a faff. There is an archway zip leading from one bottom corner to another, plus the zip down groundsheet. So if you wanted to get anything from the porch, you had to crouch down to one of the corners and open both zips. But I'm not sure how this can be rectified?
The bedrooms are the new ambassador size, so are longer than the average bedroom pod. Lovely to be able to stand at the foot of the bed and get dressed. The bedrooms were also a good height, so no crouching. Lots of storage pockets both in the main tent area and bedroom pods, which was another really nice feature, as well as a piece of guy line suspended across the back of all three bedrooms, which was perfect to had our little light bulbs. Also a large zip up ventilation flap at the back of the tent keeping the bedroom areas well aired.
All in all, we're very pleased with the tent, and only a few minor niggles.
