Just came back from our 3rd camping trip in this tent and it really earnt it's money !

Are first two trips were spent in glorious sunshine but last weekend in Brixham it rained for 3 out of 4 days and continuously for 18 hours heavy rain .

The tent was totally dry inside not one drip of rain and it withstood heavy wind also .

It's very spacious and easy to erect ( 1 hour ) with all the furniture etc .

We used the side porch as a cooking area as the weather was so bad .

Are next purchase will be the front extension or the awning . Won't buy another tent apart from Outwell as you really can tell the difference in the quality !

In summary this is a brilliant family tent for those who want to be comfortable and dry with plenty of space .

Great waterproof and windproof tent - the extra awning (with sides) gives masses of room for undercover outdoor cooking and washing up. Very roomy tent for family of four & two dogs. Even though it's a six berth, the bedrooms are a squeeze for six adults. There's a handy zip on both sides to allow an electric cable to be brought inside easily.

Easy for two people to put up.

Do purchase the carpet and footprint!

We decided to sell our lovely kampa Tenby 8 and Our fab Vango Icarus 6 , for the Outwell Montana 6p which size wise is in the middle ,it has more living area than the Icarus 6 which means we can cook, dine and still have room for our camp chairs and floorspace for the kids to play.

The panoramic windows with zip up curtains is just brilliant it's like sitting in a conservatory and as the sun moves round and if it gets to hot inside you can just zip up those few curtains and still have a view.

We purchased the roof protector as well, because our Kampa had a roof lining inside the living area, it really does make a difference to the temperature inside the tent, it has a silver side that reflect the sun and keeps the tent cool and a black side to absorb the sun to keep the tent warmer in cooler weather and protects the roof from bird dropping, tree sap and UV rays. The roof protector also darkens the sleeping compartment,which we were used to in our Kampa which had the sleep tight system .

On the third night in the tent we had a thunderstorm,torrential rain and we stayed dry.

The Outwell Montana 6p is a lovely spacious tent, easy to erect and take down and we managed to pack it back into its bag first attempt.

Brilliant tent that can easily accommodate 2 adults, 2 children and 2 large dogs without you tripping over each other. Easy to put up if you know a thing or two about tents, otherwise watch the YouTube video!

I'm 6'3' and I had loads of headroom and plenty of space in the bedroom.

The only downside is that it's a bit of a pain to pack away, if you don't get it right first time, you'll have to unfold the whole tent to fold it correctly or it won't go in the bag.

I bought mine 2 years ago (2012) from Go Outdoors and it cost £250! It has recently gone up in price again though, so I got a real bargain!

We now have the awning to go over the front, as the first time we used it, we didn't have the awning which meant that we couldn't really cook in the dry or we'd risk creating a build up of condensation on the inside of the tent!

I have had 3 Outwell tents but by far this is my favourite, the living area is great and the 2 bedrooms are of equal size so no fighting hehhe. Pitching the tent it fairly easy if you know what your doing I recommend youtube for this thats how I learnt. Packing this tent away isn't easy as the bag it came with is not very forgiving so take your time and get it right cos this part can be quite frustrating. The children love this tent cos they have more space to spread out

Have just come back from our first camping trip with this tent which was bought to replace our previous Vango tunnel tent.

I love it! The sewn in groundsheet is a big advantage over our old tent - but the main thing that we couldn't stop commenting on was the space. More than big enough for us and our two girls to relax, play and eat and not be tripping over each other - and plenty of headroom too. No more banging my head on the lantern. Very airy and light too thanks to the many windows - which are tinted and also can be zipped up for privacy or at night.

We got the footprint too which helped with pitching and also added a bit of insulation plus a carpet which made it feel much cosier inside.

We also took the awning - which was fine for a week but decided that if we go away for just a weekend we would just take the tent itself. It's more than enough.

Pitching was relatively easy with two of us. Pegging out took time due to the large number of guys and pegging points. However, packing away was a bit more of a challenge and we struggled to get everything back in the tent bag.

Yes it's a heavy tent to transport, but you do feel safe and secure in it even in strong winds.

I think it's a perfect family tent and cannot wait to use it again.

Bought this tent to replace our ancient Conway trailer tent. We can't fault it, it is very well made, we have as much living area as our old camper. Stood up to some very wet and windy weather in Wales this year. The porch is the best part of it, invaluable when it is wet, windy or muddy, our carpet stayed immaculate. Although the porch is low, it has to be to work aerodynamically. Overall height of tent would suit even a very tall man. We take all our creature comforts with us and it's like being at home. We had many admiring comments and probably managed to sell one to a couple who had a guided tour! Although the steel poles are a bit heavy in the bag, they are so much more sturdy than aluminium. Much quicker to put up than a camper and easy to get square on a footprint, a lot of guys but this is the price you pay for a tent that claims to stand up to a Force 10 gale. Zip up curtains are real time-savers and panoramic view is great even on a wet day. Our new game on returning home is 'try and think how Outwell can possibly improve on this for next year's model'. Only thing we can come up with is a way to get mains lighting into sleeping pods

Fantastic, very spacious tent. We are a family of 3 and it suits us just fine. We have used it with 2 friends staying in it and still plenty of room.

Used this Aug 2013 - heavy rain with no problems at all. Very impressed!

Easy pitching and taking down, bag could be bigger but once you have got into the swing of folding it down it does fit first time (honest!)

Front awning is a must - gives added space, we use as kitchen area.

Used 3 times in 2013, feeling sad that we are putting away now until 2014. Highly recommend this tent

We recently picked a Montana 6P up ex-display for a bargain price. Although we have now only used it for a couple of nights, I am very pleased with what we got.

There are a couple of minor niggles - the shock cord is broken on one of the sections of one pole, and there are some zip pulls missing, but I can easily live with that, or could ask about buying spares from the manufacturer.

The weather was somewhat windy and very wet during our trip, and the tent coped with no problems whatsoever. I found the rain porch to be a nice touch, as we could enter and leave without opening the main door and letting the water in.

I have to say that it would be a squeeze to fit 6 adults in the inner tent, but it is acknowledged that this tent is meant to sleep 4 comfortably. There is ample living space, and the number of large windows make it feel very airy. These can be covered by zip-up blinds if a little privacy is wanted.

The tent pitches and strikes easily (although I took my time doing both). It does seem very hard to get it back into the bag, but I think this can be said for a great many tents.

Very pleased so far!

Excellent tent,very strong and stable and looks the business,we love our tent.We cant fault it.Buy the footprint and carpet and you will be a happy camper.We always get compliments and interest from other campers and even let them have a look round.Its a good size without being too big.

Find a package deal online then let Go Outdoors beat the price by 10%.

I would have a trial run of putting the tent up and making sure you have everything as we did not have the pegs and have a good look around for manufacturing floors.

We put the footprint down,peg the back corners of the tent with the anchor metal pegs get the poles ready,insert the first pole into the pin then go to the other side and do that and pull the pin strap tight while an helper holds the other side stable,peg the back guy rope and repeat the pole process.We then make sure the poles are inline and the tents pulled to the front to fit the footprint then use the anchor pegs and pull the straps.Use the black pegs and peg the skirts down.Once your front is pegged down and your happy peg the poles down and the rest of the tent and then do the guy ropes.This is how we do it and we don't fallout and it works for us,sit back and relax and admire your tent with a drink of your choice.
