We purchased our Nevada M at the end of last season and got a good deal with price matching at GO Outdoors. We have just got back from our 4th trip with this tent.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, a 5 year old and 3 year old). We leave the sleep pod unzipped to make one large sleeping area which comfortably accommodates a double airbed and 2 single airbeds for the kids. There is no way you would fit 5 people in there!

The tent is quick and easy to pitch (takes us about 20 minutes) and is easy to take down and fits back into the bag without any hassle. The porch pole is a tight fit and tricky to get in - hubby does it no problem but I really struggle! There is enough space inside to accommodate a camp cupboard, cool box, table and 4 chairs.

I particularly like the light airy colour of the tent and the large windows give a great panoramic view if required. The tent is a good height too and we found that the sleeping pods were higher compared to our friends Vango tent of a similar spec.

We camped in 40km side on winds and had no issue with tent stability. Obviously, the tent sides did move slightly with the gusts but the tent was stable. The pole that you put inside the living compartment of the tent really does aid stability (so don't forget to put it in!). We also used delta pegs on the guy ropes which gave good anchorage and are solid as a rock (would not go anywhere without delta pegs now!).

We did have an issue with condensation on our first few outings, but discovered that was due to the fact that we did not have all the vents open. You really do need unzip and peg out the vent at the back of the tent back the sleep compartments - we have had no issue since.

We managed to break a tent pole the first time we camped when pitching the tent (due to our inexperience and bending the poles up too far I think!). We now make sure we carry a couple of spare poles, bungee cord and a threader just in case! We have had no issue since.

We invested in the footprint, which really does protect the bottom of the tent from muck. The carpet gives an extra layer of insulation, is comfortable underfoot and gives the tent a cosy feel. The front extension is essential for us as it provides space to store the kitchen stand, BBQ, table and chairs as well as provide shelter in windy or wet conditions when you want to sit outside. I was a little worried how the extension would cope in the wind, but it was fine with the breezes we experienced (but I could see in strong wind you wind need to take it down).

All in all a great little tent to accommodate 4 people comfortably, quick to pitch and ideal for shorter camping trips. We love ours!

Read some of the other reviews & I too pitched up the tent in a strong side on wind onto the side rain door & pegs were being uprooted which then caused the poles, side of tent to bend in. This is not a design fault, it is much more to do with the type of ground & the pegs you use. We had to purchase long sand spikes & then had no issues as the guy ropes held fine. The plastic pegs are a good all-rounder but don't expect to be able to use them for all conditions both weather & ground. Rocky ground needs rock pegs, sandy ground needs sand pegs, etc. Outwell cannot be expected to supply them all.

Tent nice & roomy. Have got the front canopy which is a great area to cook & sit in, especially in poor weather. Carpet makes it much more comfortable & warmer. Footprint offers a little protection & insulation. A fantastic tent come rain or shine, easy to pitch & pack away with ample room for 2 adults & 2 kids plus dog even without canopy. Took a battering recently at Shell Island in 40mph + gusts & no damage what-so-ever when other tents on the site were being ripped to shreds including my mates Vango.

We purchased this tent after seeing our friends Nevada M as we wanted a quick pitch tent.

We purchased tent, footprint, carpet and front extension.

Tent is fairly quick to pitch, getting quicker to pitch each time we use it!

Plenty of space in the tent and nice airy and the carpet gives a little bit of luxury.

We used the tent at Easter in glorious weather and the tent didn't get to hot. We camped again this weekend and the weather was dire, high winds and heavy rain, and the Nevada didn't budge an inch. With the bad weather the extension was a god send.

The Nevada has certainly proved itself, can't think of anything bad to say about it. Just looking forward to lots more camping trips over the summer. We love our Nevada M

We purchased the Nevada M after receiving and reading recommendations, really happy we did. Putting it up is a breeze as we now have the routine down to a fine art. We purchased the footprint, carpet, extension and windbreak, all the extras certainly make a difference. Recently during high winds in the Peak District we opted to take down the front extension but other than that everything held tight. We love the light airy feeling and the room that is available.

We have just returned from a family camping weekend which had its adventures, not least a dash to JR Leisure when our Wynnster Marseille was destroyed by the wind 1 hour after erecting it. We were pushed for time and had limited funds so opted for the Nevada M as it was an Outwell (good reputation) and would sleep all six of us at a push (2 teenagers in the living area, although they have their own small tents)We got our money back for the Marseille and added a few extra pennies and returned to the campsite to erect our second tent of the day. Erecting it was a doddle and it was up within half hour.

It has some nice little features such as the rain porch, mosi nets at all 3 doors and plenty of ventilation. All 6 of us slept in it on the last night and despite rain etc there was no condensation dripping from the flysheet.

The best thing about this tent was that it withstood a right old battering from the wind. I was surprised to read 2 reviews which ended in disaster caused by the wind. We used very few of the silly luminous plastic pegs it comes supplied with (this is the only reason I've marked it down). Instead we used rock pegs and maybe that made a difference. The tent flapped a bit but all in all it stood up well against the wind, unlike our Marseille.

I would recommend this tent as it's roomy and easy to put up with a few thoughtful touches.

We love our tent! We upgraded to this from an Atakama 5, to use for week long holidays. As a couple it is perfect size with room for dressing in addition to sleeping plus a spacious lounge area. The extension is also a good buy, handy to have should it be wet / windy! Have camped in quite strong winds with it and glad to report that no major issues!

This is a nice roomy tent, is a good height and ideal if you know that the weather is going to be peaceful.

However, I have given it 2/10 because if you are going to camp in anything other than a slight breeze, this tent will collapse, particularly if the wind is hitting the side of the tent. We camped for one night in changeable wind conditions; there was no way of pitching the tent in the direction of the wind. By morning the side of the tent was showing considerable weakness and constant re-tightening of the guy ropes revealed that the plastic pegs had begun to bend. We managed breakfast in the front extension, but by mid-morning, the side of the tent was being pushed so far into the living area that the front pole snapped. Admittedly, the wind had picked up, but other tents around us of a similar design were still standing.

Not much I can fault with this tent. Spacious and comfortable living area and light, airy bedrooms, though we have not used it to full capacity. We now have the front extension, which has added a very useful area to cook and sit in and is excellent when it is raining. The only criticism is that a couple of poles have snapped and the replacement poles appear to be much thicker and more substantial.

This tent is a death trap - not suitable for Scottish spring weather and not suitable for family camping!

We purchased the Nevada M, footprint, carpet and extension early April 2011. We put it up in the garden and found this easy enough and then took it camping with the family on the Royal Wedding weekend.

We pitched in glorious weather in a busy campsite. It took about half an hour, but was pretty straight forward. We were really pleased with the tent when it was up - nice spacious living area and lovely and bright. Hence the reason I've marked this tent 1 instead of 0.

However. During the first night, the wind picked up and changed direction. I wouldn't say it was blowing a gale or anything, but it did get quite gusty. We weren't too worried as had all the guylines up and had read good reviews about the tent online.

However, the gusts of wind were hitting the side of the tent, but as our baby tucked up and asleep, we kept it pitched where it was.

At about 12.30 am, there was a strong gust of wind and the tent flipped upside down with the three of us in it. We ended up under our airbed and the other side of our baby who had been tipped out her travel cot. It was an absolute nightmare and totally terrifying.

Thankfully our baby was fine and wasn't hurt. I got quite badly bruised and my husband cut his hand and his glasses were broken. It then took ages to get out the tent as everything was upside down and it was hard to find doors etc. Fortunately we had kept the partition between the two sleeping areas open, so I was able to get to my baby okay.

We managed to get out the tent to find that the cheap plastic tent pegs were bent (guess we should have known better and bought metal ones when we purchased the tent - but we kind of thought that it would be okay as we were told the tent as a package was suitable for spring and summer weather and the forecast had been good), two of the guy lines had snapped and some of the inner had ripped.

Ours was the only tent to have moved. There was a very similar sized/model Gelert tunnel tent next to ours pitched in the exact same direction and it was fine.

To cut a very long story short, we had to pack up and leave in the small hours and drive home.

I have been camping for 30 years and never experienced anything like this. Yes, the wind was hitting the side of the tent, but it was nothing like some of the wind we've camped in previously on the Western Isles. I think the Nevada M is really poorly designed - the wind seemed to catch on the canopy over the side door. The tent pegs are completely worthless - for such a supposedly good brand of tent manufacturer - why are they selling tents with plastic pegs? The guy lines don't seem to be up to much either. I've never had guylines snap before.

We are just lucky none of us were seriously hurt.

I will never camp in this tent again. With much persuasion the retailer replaced the tent with a Vango Maritsa 500 which we had up at the weekend and it seems much more robust. It was windier at the weekend than the Royal Wedding weekend and the tent didn't budge.

If anyone wants to view the Nevada M - try viewing it at Go Outdoors in Edinburgh - they've pitched our old tent - blood, broken guylines and all - as a demo tent!

Just returned from our first ever weekend camping trip in the Nevada M (2 adults and a 4 and 7 yr old). We are absolutely over the moon with the tent which we were lucky enough to get one of the Boxing Day bundle packages so got the tent, extension, footprint & carpet all in. It took about 30 mins to get the tent up which we thought was great for a first go. We watched the video on YouTube beforehand and made a few notes to take with us. We were surprised at how easy it was - even in a high wind.

We didn't put up the extension in the end as we were with a group of other families and had a shared cooking area but we still had bags of space inside the main tent. There is lots of light in the tent and lots of door/window options which I can see would be great in the summer. I would highly recommend the carpet -it makes the tent so cosy.

We were pitched next door to a Montana 6 which was our original choice but have to say the Nevada M offers a great space inside by comparison and is smaller to transport, lighter and quicker to put up than the Monty. All in all would highly recommend this tent and cant wait to go again!

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.
