I spent quite a while researching tents and originally bought a Vango but the fact that there were hardly any windows made it very dark and I felt very isolated as im a lady camping on her own with 2 dogs.

The day after I returned from my first trip with my Vango I sold it on a well known auction site then proceeded to research similar sized tents which had a lot more windows.

On a trip to my local Water World I found the Nevada M and fell in love straight away, I also bought the footprint but not the carpet because I didnt fancy the dogs bringing in mud! . I took and used old sheets which just go straight in the washer when I get back!

Overall I rate this tent very highly, plenty of space and loads of light, this tent has in total 5 big windows which 3 of them are doors with nets and all 5 have sewn in curtains.

I have plenty of gear, larder/cooker stand, storage units, tables, chairs, loo and a double blow up bed and there is still loads of space.

The nets on the doors are great especially when you have a swarm of wasps and midges to contend with and the side door with the porch over it certainly does its job which means you can still have the door open in the rain and not a drop comes in. If its raining don't use the other doors because when you unzip them water runs in from both the door and the roof . Hence the porch!

I had 4 trips away from June to Aug Bank holiday of between 2-3 weeks at a time and when you look at how many seams the tent has I havnt had 1 leak, to me that says a quality product. I did have some quite heavy rain and wind for a couple of days. The site faces the sea so it really gets the full force of the weather and as I prefer to pitch for the super view I did get the worst of the weather and the tent hardly moved an inch!

My tent also has the plastic pegs and because id read the comments on here id started looking for new pegs before id even tried the plastic ones but id not got round to purchasing any before my first break but to be honest im really pleased with them so wont be spending more money on something I don't think I really need. They went in and came out really well but I hammer in a metal peg first to make my required hole then put in the plastic peg which goes straight in with no problems, I did buy a really heavy mallet though. Having said that I did find when it came to packing up there were a few which werent quite as straight as they could have been but non resembled anything like a corkscrew as one reviewer experienced.

As im a bit of a 'clean freak' I decided because I wasnt rushing home I would wash my pegs before I left so I boiled the kettle and soaked them in really hot soapy water which I found made them quite pliable meaning I could bend and straighten them out quite easily, so to be honest I am very happy with both the tent and the pegs.

It is quite a heavy tent as someone else said previously so I tend to split the tent up because everything has its own bag. Tent, pegs and poles and the heaviest bag seems to be the poles by far so be warned! Splitting it this way meant I could handle it a lot better plus packing the car was easier too.

I agree about it would be more convenient if there were clips or something equally as good for the centre light cable but I took some of plastic cable ties which tighten and used them where possible.

Definately a tent to more than consider but shop around on line as prices do vary and some retailers do offer a price match providing you can prove it can be purchased elsewhere at that time at a cheaper price, every £ helps when your starting out in camping, im still finding things id like and I really thought id got everything I needed!

Happy camping and just ENJOY THE RELAXATION a camping holiday gives you!

We bought this test last year as a weekend tent to save using the big one all the time. It has just had it's first outing after sitting in the cupboard for a year! We count our blessings as this tent is absolutely perfect for our needs, we are 2 adults and 3 dogs - plenty of room in the large bedroom, living area is very spacious, easily enough room to eat if the weather is bad. A doddle to put up (40 minutes - 2 short women!). We also have the front extension - a must have in poor weather, but I shall leave my review about this under the relevant section. The rain came down heavily on Sunday morning, the inside stayed completely dry - quality at it's best. Reason for 9? The zips on the doors - kept tripping over them coming in and out, just a case of getting used to them really. I would recommend this tent to couples easily or family of 4, any more may be a squeeze. Can't wait to use it again.

Love this tent. Replaced our Easycamp Napoli for this which is similar size but pitches all in one. Got a carpet to fit (not the right one - ours is for a Mojave tent). Recently purchased the extension to allow for outdoors cooking with toddler now in tow.

Easy to get up and down, goes back in the bag first time once you have got the hand of folding it. Pegs are ok but bend easily, stay in the ground well though even in sandy soil with gale force winds. Tent held up very well in 20-30mph gales, only one pole section split but was easily replaced with the spare once home. No damage to rest of tent.

Big enough to be comfortable even in the wet, small enough to pack away quickly and fit in tight pitches. Love the amount of light when all the front curtains are open, its like a conservatory. Plenty of room for 2 adults, toddler and dog. We have a double airbed in the larger pod and a kampa toddler bed in the smaller with plenty of storage room around the edges.

Never had any issues with tent and would definitely buy again. Now just want to find a kids room to fit it and it will be perfect.

First off, it's a surprisingly big bag for a 5 person tent - the same size bag as an 8 person Coleman tent I have. If you're looking to buy something small to transport, consider this carefully! Especially, once you add the additional bag for the porch and carpet, if you opt for those (more on that later!).

The tent is quite straight forward to erect for two people (you'd struggle on your own) and pitches in one go, i.E. Not inner first. There are just three poles to slide in and bend into shape before clipping the lower sections of the tent onto it - it's a nice design with some neat touches like velco straps to hold the (luminous yellow) guy ropes neatly in place until needed. The tent comes with plenty of large plastic pegs which i've found to be quite strong, although i'd always advise you to carry some rock pegs. The side entrance has a brow pole which seems a little tight against the tent but use has shown that it works fine after it's been used a few times. There is an additional central pole in the living area but it fits well and provides a useful place to hang torches etc.

The windows are big and made of very nice clear plastic. Curtains are integral to keep the light out and there are nice pop out vents on all corners for a bit of air circulation. It goes without saying but all of the doors and mosquito nets can be rolled up together or individually.

The side entrance mentioned earlier is a nice addition if you'd rather keep the big front entrance closed up in bad weather.

It's a sewn inn groundsheet (SIG), so very waterproof and bug proof, even if you wanted to sleep in the living area.

The bedroom area is plenty big enough for 4 people, but 5 would be very tight, especially if all adults. We use three standard size single airbeds and a larger 'Kampa' childrens airbed which has sides to stop the child falling out and all 4 fit snugly together. The bedroom area has a detachable screen to separate the bedroom into two if needed.

The living area is a very good size - certainly capable of fitting a folding table and chairs if you needed to eat indoors. There is also an excellent hanging storage unit included which contains about 12 good size pockets for all your mobile phones, keys, torches etc. A really nice touch.

There's a zip providing a convenient access for an electrical hook up (EHU) cable too.

The tent has completely proven itself in bad weather. We were using it near the August 2011 Bournemouth flash floods in 24 hours of torrential rain and we had literally no water in the tent. Very impressive.

In addition to the tent, we have the fitted groundsheet, carpet and canopy so a little on those too.

The groundsheet is a no brainer. It helps you to position the tent before you actually put it up, protects the bottom of the tent and provides a clean place to pack it all away afterwards. I'd always have one.

The canopy, for us, is essential these days. It allows you to cook under shelter even in the pouring rain, without any danger of setting your tent alight or stinking it up with cooking smells! It also means that you can keep the big main entrance open even in bad weather. Totally recommended. The porch has two poles and is a little fiddly to put up, especially if its windy (becomes a 3 person job!) but once up and clipped to the tent it's very stable. The sides go right to the ground, with wind and water proof flaps at the bottom for complete protection from the elements. Additionally, we've found that you can route the centre tent guy rope (which you don't need with the canopy) across the top of the canopy and it makes a perfect clothes line!

The carpet is a luxury which many (including myself) used to think was a complete waste, although many people already use a number of picnic blankets to make their tents more cosy! The Nevada carpet folds down pretty small yet fits the whole of the living area and provides an excellent quality and beautifully cosy surface to step out onto in the morning. It may be on the 'glamping' side of camping, but i'm now sold on one!

Brilliant tent, especially if you can get the package deal for a good price too. Well recommended.

We have just got back from a 3 night break in the new forest. This was our first outing with the Nevada m as we purchased it the week before. We also purchased the footprint & the carpet. We spent a good while researching what tent to buy. Then narrowed it down to a couple. Once we started to view the tents at shops the quality of Outwell was apparent from other manufacturers.

The tent is absolutely superb.

When we arrived at the site it was raining. We started to erect the tent & about half way through the heavens opened up on us. We continued to pitch the tent which we did in about 30 minutes. We were soaked to the bone. The tent had no leaks whatsoever!

It is an ideal size for myself, partner & our 2 dogs. The tent is very sturdy & is simple to erect & dismantle. This is the 2011 model & does have clips for secure fixing of a light cable.

I will be purchasing some better pegs though as I damaged 3 on this outing. This may be down to me being heavy handed though??

I will certainly be purchasing the porch extension soon & cannot wait to go away again in this wonderful tent.

So pleased that we chose to purchase the Nevada M

We bought a Nevada M with carpet and footprint last year in time for an Easter break in Ullswater and it had a baptism of fire, or should I say snow! We've added the front extension since and it has served us well in storms and high winds as well as in better weather.

It's a big tent for a couple but I have some low-level mobility issues and so benefit from plenty of space and a spare bedroom for a camping loo and luggage. For the same reason, it's essential for a tent to be easy enough for me to help my husband to put up and take down and the Nevada M couldn't be easier. We often camp with friends and there is plenty of space for guests to come and eat in the living space and awning.

We have just replaced some guy ropes and pole cord that were showing signs of wear and look forward to many more happy holidays.

Bought Nevada M in August 2010 . Went away for weekend break to Scarborough. Tent had everything myself ,partner and 2 kids needed. No probs. Went away this July to Ullswater, nightmare, the tent leaked in seven places, not just drips here and there. Had to cut short holiday. Tried seamsealer, didn't help. It was two weeks out of warranty, however the assistant manager at go outdoors( west denton) Newcastle couldn't have been more helpful. Exchanged for a 2011 model with full years guarantee. I wouldn't have got another Outwell nevada but we had bought footprint groundsheet , carpet . Will see how the replacement tent turns out watch this space. Must stress the rain we had was not heavy but on and off light to moderate .

Being a relative newcomer to Camping and having borrowed one of these Tents after a bad experience from another manufacturer,we decided to buy a Nevada M and couldn't be more pleased. On its first outing and on a couple of other occasions,it has taken a real battering without any problems at all. Simply a great Tent,especially with the front extension. As for standing room,im 6'3 and can stand up with plenty to spare. As others have said,the only issue are the plastic pegs, a bit puzzling why these are supplied on such a good, quick to erect Tent.

A superb tent!

This tent has by-far exceeded our expectations! We purchased the tent, front extension, matching Outwell wind break and carpet for a 2 week trip to Cornwall. We have since used it 3 times and are seriously impressed!

For starters, the tent really does look the business! It's big, and with the front extension, it dominated our campsite! There is loads of room to stand up in it, and when it's raining, you can zip yourself in with a table and 4-6 chairs and still be comfortable. The extension is a must in my opinion. It allows for cooking and relaxing whilst undercover.

The biggest difference between this and my old tent, other than the size, is that the Nevada M has a built in ground sheet, so when you're in, you're in, and the creepy crawlies are out! It makes the tent feel so much warmer and comfortable, especially with the carpet.

An brilliant tent! I can't recommend enough!

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.
