Like other reviewers have said, this is a brilliant tent all round. I managed to put it up on my own in about 20 minutes without any huge difficulties. I love the size, light and spaciousness inside the tent and the central roof pole is very handy for drying towels and hanging my lantern from. I picked it partly because of the sewn in groundsheet - I camp with two dogs who have worked out how to escape from tents with a gap between outer and groundsheet so this means I can relax and not worry about dogs getting out and other wildlife getting in (not to mention draughts)!

Other handy features: 1. The built in pockets are very useful, 2. The guy-rope holders are very convenient, 3. I like the way you can have two separate bedrooms or unzip them to make one big bedroom or even remove one of them completely.

Only three issues with the tent: 1. As someone else says, it is far too easy to catch the fabric covering the zips on the doors and you have to get used to being very careful every time you use them. 2. The pole that holds the rain guard over one of the door puts a lot of tension on the two poles on either side. This means that the door between these poles gets quite strained and is very tight. I worry that after a lot of use the seams might be weakened. I ended up leaving out the rain-guard pole (it's not essential anyway) and this seemed to solve the problem. 3. The bedroom doors have a mesh top above the opaque bit. I know there isn't much privacy in tents anyway but I found that when I'm standing up, the see-through bit of the door is just about level with my chest, meaning that I have to close all the outside doors if I want to get changed without the whole world seeing me! I'm quite short as well so it's probably even worse for a tall person!

Other than those three minor issues I love this tent and I've very happy I chose it.

We bought this tent with the matching carpet and footprint groundsheet for roughly £250 at the end of June and have since been away in it twice.

The larger of the two bedrooms can accomodate a king size airbed whereas the smaller bedroom can take a standard double airbed quite easily. On our first trip there were 4 adults and we still found the tent to be spacious enough for us all and on the second trip for 2 of us we were able to use the second bedroom as a storage/wardrobe area.

The living area comfortably housed our two chairs, table, coolbox and kitchen area when not in use outside and still left plenty of room to move around.

On the three occasions that we have pitched the tent it has took no longer than 30 minutes to pitch including guying out and we were very impressed with how it withstood high winds on a quite exposed campsite quite easily.

Two of the three doors can be used as a canopy (poles are NOT provided, we used some from our previous tent) and the third has a handy rainporch which helps keep the door dry so that water doesn't pour into the tent when it's unzipped.

Downsides? Hardly any. We did notice that for some reason the fabric does seem to pull quite tight around the zip on the porch door and the zip does seem to catch on the fabric quite a lot but this is really a tiny issue in comparison to all the good things this tent has going for it.

I would recommend this tent to couples and small families wanting plenty of room for weekends or longer getaways who don't want to spend a lot of time putting up and taking the tent down.

As others have said, this is a very nice tent, but which could benefit from one or two changes. Here are my likes and dislikes.

Likes first. Good ventilation, like the fact that it has three options for doors including a rain porch.

Bedrooms good size and height.

Pitches easily and quickly.

Good organiser pockets
- seem nice and strong as well.

I particularly like the pole which runs, inside, up the middle of the living area and which I can use for hanging lightweight items like tea-towels for drying. This one feature is responsible for me buying this model rather than the Montana 4 or the Minnesota 4.

Flysheet is nice and strong.

Love the size and airiness of the living area. We are able to cook in here if it's raining (with plenty of ventilation, of course). On our test outing with it, we had quite a lot of rain and were able to get our camping kitchen, the dog's travel crate, a table and four chairs out without falling over anything. It was more cramped, obviously, but it worked.

Since I've given it a score of 8 out of 10, I'd better say what I don't like about it.

The system for the three layers on the door - rain windows on the outside, blind next - attached to the rain windows - and the 'no-see-um' type mesh - is not good. It's a fiddle to have to unzip the mesh just to get at the blind - I prefer our Vango Diablo's system of having the blind and the mesh zipped together. With that, I just unzip the blind and roll it up and then I have the mesh there to protect me from flies. With the Outwell tent, I have to unzip the mesh to get to the blind, roll up the blind, then re-zip the mesh to protect the living area from flies - that's too fiddly. This could be solved so easily by the blind being the first layer on the inside and the mesh between the blind and the window.

The toggles for holding up the doors etc are also a bit of a pfaff! Certainly they're secure but I don't find them as easy to use as my Vango ones, which are just a toggle on elastic and a plastic ring. With the Outwell toggles, I struggle to work out just which one of the three sets dangling are the right one to hang it up to. I could live with this, but it could be made simpler, I'm sure.

The groundsheet is a bit thin and the base of the inners in the bedrooms is really quite thin and silky in style. That makes the bedroom floors difficult to sweep and I worry that they might be a bit vulnerable. Again, something I can live with - just think that the main groundsheet would benefit from being a bit thicker.

Last, but not by any means least, I don't like the way the zips catch on the door with the rain porch (not sure about the other doors, don't usually use them except open as porches). I have had real difficulty with the zips and I can't see that the tent is faulty in any way as the stitching looks fine and the zips are inserted nice and straight. It doesn't help that there are zip cover flaps (can't think of any other way to describe them at the moment!) from both directions, so catching the zip seems to me to be almost inevitable. In my opinion, it would have been better to have made sure that, either, there wasn't a flap on the layer with the mesh at all, or that it really only came part way over, then the flap on the flysheet itself, which is essential, would be the only thing the zip might be in danger of catching on. This is a problem which must be fixed - there's too much danger of ruining your tent if the zip gets caught when a child is using the zip and continues to tug to try to get it free.

To sum up, it's a superb tent which could be improved by fixing the zip issue and the window layer issue.

We bought one of these 2 months ago and have used it on two trips so far. Really roomy living area with loads of light and options for letting in ventilation. Really easy to put up too. We had torrential rain on the first night of our latest trip and had no problems with leaks. Lots of handy pockets and a nice looking tent when it's up too. The sewn-in groundsheet keeps it draft and bug-free and was very comfortable to sleep in. We also bought the Footprint groundsheet to help protect the floor, and it does also help with keeping the cold out too. Great size for our family (two adults and one child and sometimes a a dog!)although I think if we had more children we'd need a bigger second bedroom and would have gone for the 'L' model.

Bought one 2 weeks ago from Outdoor Mega store after spending about 1 year lurking and trawling through the UKCS site for my first family tent.

Easy to put up even for a complete novice like me and has loads of room for us, 3 adults and 2 children.

With the all around windows in the living area it gives very good light and a sense of sitting at home in the sun room only hopefully with nicer panoramic views.

Choice of 3 entrances with bug nets and inside window blinds for windows.

Pitched it in backgarden to test it out and it has rained nearly none stop for 2 weeks.

Camped out for 6 nights and not a leak. No condensation problems due to the good all around ventilation.

Have only given it 9 out of ten because there must be some fault I haven't found so just in case it gets a nine.

So far so good and I'm really pleased with my first choice of family tent.

I second everything said in the previous review. I bought one last weekend and have just pitched it in the garden for the first time. It was so quick and easy.

We are a family of 4 and think the tent is the perfect size for weekends away and it will also be great for longer holidays.

We also bought the carpet which fits great and looks really good. We are considering getting the canopy to give us added outdoor space for cooking etc.

Altogether this a brilliant tent. Plenty living space good size bedrooms (one can be taken down to give more space) great quality and easy to put up and take down.

We are really pleased with ours.

Just purchased one of these, thought we couldn't improve on our previous tent for ease of erecting, but was wrong. Took 15 mins max to erect by myself.

Very light & airy inside with plenty of room for us inside on a wet day if necessary, & no worries of any rain water or bugs getting in with its sewn in groundsheet.

There is a zip for main elec unit access in lower part of tent & another one in Bedroom area so you can have electric light in your bedroom.

Very good ventilation, with bug nets that can be put over all opening doorways, (so no nasty creepy crawlies)

Typical Outwell excellent manufacturing quality & great value for money, (have seen poorer quality tents with much less features for more money)

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.
