Fantastic tent for 2 people. 4 is possible but 2 is perfect. Good height, plenty of room and I love the sown in groundsheet. Plus the zips work great and it feels very solid and safe. Plan to buy the front awning for it so that we can put cooking gear in it and sit outside of the tent if its raining.

Fully endorse what the previous reviewers have said, in fact we bought the Minnosota 6 (family of 3 plus Labrador) following our reading of this site and much more research! We do think the carpet and extension are essential comfort items, I couldn't imagine camping without them now. As with all tents, this isn't really a 6 berth tent, for optimum comfort, I'd say no more than 4. It has also just stood up to 2 nights of strong winds on a coastal hilltop, very noisy and just a little hair-raising but not one bit of damage. All in all, an excellent tent with tons of headroom. Home from home!

After a lot of searching we decided to go for the minny 6 as we wanted a tent that we could stand up in, have loads of room and be easy to put up.

The minny 6 ticked all the boxes we wanted and having tested it this weekend for the first time can say we are very pleased with it.

The only niggles are the front door having no bottom zip and the bedy pole above the side door being very tight and putting pressure on the zip.

Well made, looks good and loads of room, 9/10 with ease, if outwell put a zip on the door bottoms and shortened the pole above the side door 10/10.

We selected this tent after a lot of looking and having owned a large dome tent previously with fibre poles we wanted something with steel poles. The tent is a very good size fitting easily on most campsite pitches and still provides lots of space for sleeping and living. Having spent several wet trips in the tent two adults and two children have been able to sit comfortable to eat at a table in the tent and with the large windows it is very light. We have combined it with the front extension to provide a covered sitting and cooking area and the carpet to keep your feet warm.

Our first proper tent after we caught the camping bug and realised the cheap one we had bought just wasn't up to the job. It was a pleasure to see our tent for the first time again this year after the winter break.

So practical, I love the 16 storage pockets, the spacious design (sleeps 4 really comfortably - 6 would be a stretch though in the bedrooms, but we have increased capacity by sleeping in the 'lounge' once). We've just bought the new front extension and love that too.

We can pitch this and the extension in around 45 mins depending on how much we have to shout at the kids whilst doing it and whether they fetch and carry pegs and mallets for us.

Great family tent.

What more can be said! perfect! easy pitching, lots of room, airy, light , very sturdy , easily fits 2 adults and a 3yr old also a 3 month old baby and a border collie. I like the way the walls are not very sloped, because you can put things up against them without compromising living space. The carpet deserves a mention also, this makes all the difference, nice and warm, you get that home from home feeling. Definitely recommended.

We have had quite a few tents over the years and finally found one we really love!

First pitching - there are only 3 poles and although they are heavy, me and my disabled daughter managed to get the whole tent up and reasonably pegged down in 20 minutes (I cant bend the normal style poles as I have very weak wrists) There is an excellent video on the Outwell website showing the best way to erect it. Because its a sewn-in ground sheet the bedroom pods stay attached making it very quick to put up (very important if its raining outside!) The bedroom pods were fine for 2 single air beds in each one but it would be squashed for 3 air beds although it does say its a 6 berth. Great to be able to stand up in a bedroom pod for a change. The living area has full height built in pockets for all the stuff you can never find (magazines, Rennies etc.!)The walls aren't too sloping so you can store a lot more next to them as you aren't losing quite so much space and the roof height is excellent (partner 6ft) Lots of windows so its very light and airy. We only used the side door as the rain canopy is a great idea and stopped a lot of rain getting in as you were getting in and out of the tent. Did very well on the condensation front as we had never used a SIG and didn't know what to expect. We use a tarpaulin under (to stop the actual tent bottom getting dirty) and that green stuff you use in caravan awnings inside insulating it somewhat. For us there are actually no shortcomings - it stood up very well to quite a bit of rain and wind - would heartily recommend it.
