We splashed out on a new Montana 6p, having previously owned a very second-hand Montana 6. The price has come down from RRP of £800 shown above and we bought ours for £520.

The best thing about this tent is the amount of space it gives you. Not only does it sleep four very comfortably (6 would be a bit of a squish though), the living area is huge, and there is plenty of headroom right to the sides of the tent. In fact, there is almost too much headroom. My wife finds it difficult to reach the top of the front door to roll it up, and once the fly screen is zipped into place, despite being 6' tall, I can't reach it either.

There are various storage pods in the inner sleeping area and a small window at floor height to peer out of without getting out of your sleeping bag. We use the storm porch as storage for the tent's carrying bag and other such items, and use the extension to cover the main door and keep it dry if it rains.

The windows at the front of the tent give it a 'bay window' feel, letting in lots of light despite the tinting. The curtains cleverly unroll from a pouch at the bottom with zips to make them easy to open or close.

It takes us a bit more than 30 minutes to put it up, mainly because of the large number of guy ropes. However, once it is up and pegged down, it's rock solid, thanks to the metal poles.

It is definitely worth getting the footprint and carpet to make it comfortable. This is a large comfortable tent, well thought out and built to a high specification.

This is a fantastic tent! We had an Outwell Nevada M before this one.

We love the space. The living area, even with cooking facilities erected and table & chairs up, has enough room for us, our two dogs plus any visitors we may be entertaining. In the sleeping area we use one half as our bedroom (two x 3ft wide Areo Airbeds = 1 super king sized bed) and the other for clothes, storage and dog beds.

The tent itself is easy to put up between two of us, averaging 30mins. We do use a footprint with it which certainly helps in wet weather when packing away. We also have the Montanta 6P carpet to give extra warmth on colder nights. The side porch works really well in wet weather as a place to take wellington boots/shoes off and store wet coats.

We like the sewn in ground sheet throughout and the fact that the tent is made to withstand huge amounts of water being chucked at it from the skies! It can get very hot in sunny times and therefore our next purchase will be the roof cover, but with all the doors open you can get some air circulating which cools it down.

Well worth the money and I wouldn’t buy any other tent than an Outwell for their outstanding attention to detail and superb quality of product.

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
