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.
