Please refer to my previous post regarding 2011 nevada. As mentioned tent replaced from retailer. This time we have spent five days at ullswater and the tent stood up to some strong wind and quite a lot of rain. No leaks whatsoever . This what I expect from Outwell not the faulty previous tent (my opinion).

I bought this in the sales, and got it for £250 including a carpet. I had wanted a tent with more openings (to let air blow through) and a SIG (to stop rain coming in) and this seemed to fit the brief of having both, plus a larger living/storage area.

We had tested putting it up in the garden and thought it was horrendous compared to our old dome tent, but then we discovered 2 things that made it easier: (1) you let out the tension where you put the pole ends onto the pins, then tighten them up after pitching, and (2) watch the 1-man video on YouTube, where he puts it up on his own by pegging out all 4 corners then putting the poles in & lifting them 1 at a time, outside in (opposed to Outwell’s way of ‘walking it out’ from one end). Sorry if all of this sounds detailed and/or obvious, but it made our first campsite putting-up a lot easier, and so I thought I’d pass it on.

Once up, there is lots of room in the main dome, good head height in the bedrooms and lots of windows and doors to let in sunshine and air. It rained monsoon-levels for 6 hours and we were impressed by no leaks and the sturdiness of the unit. I agree that the door design means you can get drips into the tent when you open the main doors after rain, but if you use the side door (with rain porch already attached) it’s fine. Both the main door and one on the side can be used as porches – big enough for 2 to sit under in torrential rain and stay dry.

My only negative is that the inside of the bedrooms are bright, using very light-coloured material, and there is minimal ventilation, so you would probably need to zip the bedroom doors half down in very hot weather. As a couple with lots of ‘stuff’ (and a visiting child staying over) the mix of large main area and lots doors for easy access means I’d still recommend this tent over many others I’ve seen.

Just attempted to put up our new Nevada m in the garden for its maiden voyage and thought I'd manage on my own as others have said they had and the videos from Yeomans and another on youtube demonstrate a solo pitch. First attempt to raise front section caused a pole to split! Very, very disappointed :(

Would definitely not attempt that again but as my husband doesn't keep too well it was one of the things that drew me to this particular tent - the idea I could pt it up on my own.

I want to add this comment because I think it is important to know! I wake up too early in the morning on every holiday morning sleeping in this tent because of the immense sea of light in the sleeping cabin. For some stupid reason (design I guess) Outwell decided to make the sleeping part of the tent of a WHITE fabric. This is really a very bad choice in the design. With the white fabric changed into the mocca colour it would be the best tent ever. Helas its not. Please be aware of this! The very light sleeping cabin can ruin your holiday! I have used this tent for 2 years now. (excuse my English I'm dutch)

First time using this tent, it is so easy to erect with colour coded poles and pole slots. We also have the front extension.

We had two weeks in Brittany (June 2012), and boy did we get some rain, nine out of fourteen days saw rain, and not just the odd half hour spell, 12 to 18 hours at a time.

This was a great test, not just for our resolve, but for the tent, which was faultless. Withstood all the rain France could chuck it's way. The only negative I would give it, is the join between the tent and extension where the rain came in if the wind was that way.

June 2012 - In sum: very pleased with this tent. We wanted a large tent for 2 oldies to stand up in, easy to erect. We have just 'stress -tested' it in 2 very wet weeks in France and it stood up really well - just some minor condensation after hours of rain. We could sit, eat and live in it and still have space for bags and beds etc. Excellent.

I've read the review by Davesaat and just want to add that 40mph winds are classed as gale force winds.

If the wind was gusty then it could have been possible that winds were gusting to severe gales (41-47mph) or possibly even storm force (55-63mph) but this is speculation. However if such gust were blowing this would have taken the tent to the extreme of its testing (in ideal conditions) and beyond.

Can I also add the forum has been littered with posts of various tents collapsing in the past couple of weeks due to wind conditions. I just want to add a balanced view

We originally had a 8-man Khyam tent, but when it had to be returned under warranty, our retailer offered us the opportunity to get something else. As it was on sale at the time, we decided to get the Nevada M.

The build quality seemed good, however there are definitely some niggles:

1 - Every time I pitched it, I could not get the bedroom inner to remain separate from the outer flysheet. The flysheet itself seems very long, which causes it to be very flappy in the wind, and touch the inner bedroom pod. I've spoken to owners of Outwell tents at the sites I've stayed at, and this seems to be a common problem with other Outwells if the ground isn't perfectly flat.

2 - Initially, the living area seemed large enough, however when it rained, everything had to come inside (eg table and 3 chairs) and it became cramped, particularly as the corners are cut off by the main entrance to make the living space non-square.

3 - It does not stand up very well to wind. I pegged it out using Deltas where I could on the main guys, but as soon as the wind changed direction (which it does on a regular basis in this country), the tent had no stability whatsoever. Our previous Khyam Quebec 8XC was better in the wind.

This resulted in me needing to abandon my holiday and return the tent when it blew down in 40mph winds (so much for a Force 9 wind rating). The overall build quality was good, so I've not been put off from getting another Outwell, however I wont be getting a Nevada M again as the living space is just too small when in the wind and rain.

Purchased in April for a bargain of £199 ,price match from Go Outdoors. This tent is everything it says on the can. Easy to put up, quality material, quality poles and light and airy to sit in.

Stood up to a very breezy weekend in the Yorkshire Dales this weekend. First date we have been able to try it out because of the weather.

We have purchased the carpet and awning (review on separate thread.

We purchased this tent as a quick to erect weekend tent, and we were not disappointed.

Having watched a video on You Tube of one man putting up this tent in 5 minutes, we gave it a go. No running around for us OAPs though, working together we had the tent erected in 6 minutes - result!

I've even took it camping last December on my motorcycle, (it's a big bike - Pan European). The benefit of not having to crawl in & out of a 2 man tent, made the trip a pleasure, even when the temperature was down to -10!
