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!

This was my new Nevada M's first outing. Only the second time it's been pitched. It lived up to my expectations.

I just loved the windows, which gave panoramic views, in turn very bright and airy. I wanted something which gave me lots of space in the living area, which it did. There were only the two of us plus the dog. DS gave approval of the bedrooms which is 3+2. I had a double bed in my larger room; the only draw back, another single bed may just fit,leaving no room for belongings. DS had the smaller room he had his single bed plus the dog. He liked the zipped divider, it gave him proper privacy, but can also be unzipped to make one big bedroom, or just be removed completely. The extra pockets in the living were a great addition. Which my other tent didn't have.

The overhang canopy on the side door was a blessing. No nasty drips down ones neck, thumbs up. I didn't purchase the proper carpet, but loved the one I did buy, made it extra cozy. For a footprint, just used an oversized tarp sheet, fitted great. Tent stayed dry when it rained nothing came through, Which was a luxury not having to worry, as it has a sig. The underside stayed clean with having the tarp protecting it.

I didn't use the pegs which came with the tent; only because the sort of ground the site is on, very rocky and can be hard. Used my rock pegs. No problem. Did like the high visible guylines, cannot miss them.

I was able to pitch the tent on my own first time around. The second time, I was very tired after being in the car for a very long time, and just need a little bit of assistance from DS. Would I be able to pitch the tent in windy conditions, without assistance, I don't know, however it is a very easy straightforward tent to pitch, especially for two people, doable with one. For convenience and the tent is heavy; I have separated the inner bedrooms and poles, When packing a way.

On the whole we all loved the tent, including my OH who came to visit, still plenty of space.

I am looking forward to my next trip in my new purchase.

We have just returned from our first trip in this tent and have been very impressed. We bought at a fantastic price from go outdoors on their price guarantee who matched a deal on Amazon making the tent less than half rrp. We previously owned an Outwell 4 berth pop up and while taking longer to pitch (approx 30 mins including guys) it at least did not provide such a spectacle as collapsing the pop up! The Nevada M appears to be well made and a decent size with plenty of living space and storage for bags without leaving everything in the back of the car as with the pop up. There was little rain or extreme weather, however the tent stood up well to small amounts of rain, hail and wind. We got the carpet and groundsheet to match the tent and this was a welcome luxury in the cold weather. Cleaning the groundsheet at home was much simpler than having to clean the whole underside of the tent and repack it again.

On the whole there are not a lot of differences between the 2011 models and the 2012 I was told its colour trims etc.

I am pleased overall with the tent it’s very easy and quick to erect, it only took us about 15 minutes and this is our first outing with it, not bad for a couple of over 60s, ha ha.

The front space is adequate and the tent material is excellent quality it did get quite windy at one point and it stood up to it well. The quality and design are quite good, however there are some points that need attention before it gets ten out of ten. I speak with 57 years of camping experience and the amount of ventilation in this tent is way over the top and is the source of cold drafts. Even ignoring that the system of door closing is far from good there is no way of keeping the bottom of the doors from gaping open three short pieces of Velcro are not up to the job and no way of fastening them from the inside. This leads to more draft no good on windy cold evenings. There is also no effective way of fully closing the door and sealing it all round thus leaving the bottom of the door to flap in the wind. Some instructions would help there are loops and fasteners that I have no idea what they are for.

Its a shame these points were not ironed out before production as they spoil an otherwise great tent

Manufacturer's Description

This compact tunnel tent sleeps up to five in two bedrooms. Huge windows, backed by toggle-up curtains, ensure plenty of light enters the tent and great views out. This is enhanced by the panorama front that also provides even more space. The looks are further lifted by the use of the new Treetop Green colourway of our own Outtex 4000® tent fabric. The Nevada can be pitched either outer tent first or all in one. This is further simplified by the addition of the Outwell Easy Pegging System. The unique Outwell Wind Stabilizer System provides even more stability in up to Force 9 gales. A Rain-safe door keeps out water when access is required in bad weather. The tent is packed with Outwell DNA features like pre-attached luminous guylines. The inners have the new chic logo-embossed fronts and Night Sky Ceiling to aid sleep.
