Have recently rediscovered camping and decided to upgrade our tent to this monster (there's only 2 of us that use it!) It was easy to put up and take down and took us just over half hour but think this may come down slightly with more use. Love the sewn in groundsheet which stops the bugs getting in. Loads and loads of room and can't find any fault at all. Comes packed in an extra large bag with a toggle so there's not any struggling to fold down tiny to get it packed up after use which is always a bonus!

Bought this tent second hand off ebay for 150Pounds. We took it to Australia and lived in it for 3 weeks. We had very hot days to EXTREME windy and torrential rain some nights. After a few days of taking severe battering from stormy winds and rain only one seam leaked a couple of drops. Went to a campshop and got tape sealer and that cleared the drips. We can only rave about this monster of a tent. It can take all weathers. The only issue I have is that the end door doesn't have anything to keep it open once it is zipped open, no poles or hooks to roll it up. I think it must be a factory mistake, but then again, we always only used the side doors.

Bought this tent early in 2011,Overall very please with it. Used it for a couple of weekends and a week in Yorkshire before a two week stay in France. Very easy to erect and so much space. The windows are great too. Massive headroom,even in the sleeping area,able to stand up straight and I'm 6ft.

There were a couple of small issues when I first put it up There were many loose threads on the end of stitching runs, all about 6 inches long, I ended up trimming these and one of the zips on the front door had the glider fitted upside down. This meant that when both gliders were at the bottom the right hand door was open and the left closed.I unpicked the top of the zip,turned the glider around, job done. Skandika were great about it and refunded the delivery charge.

Still a great tent and I'm very happy with it.

Recently purchased, cannot fault, very easy to put up and take down, loads of room inside, pleasure going camping now. At one stage stood back and watched my significant other half putting tent up herself, so so easy, living area gives the space to actually live, great, envy of other campers on site with plenty of comments as regards where and how much ! Rained first night , no problem to us , in fact a breeze .

Excellent and would recommend.

I bought this tent of Ebay in Aug 09 for our trip of touring France, what a bargain, paid £240.00 brand new. Lots of space, easy to put up and to take down.

The inside of the tent is very comfortable. The living space is very spacious (we like to take the kitchen sink).

Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 very bouncy dogs (Border Collie & Lab Cross) as well as room for guests if they wanted to come with us. The sewn in ground sheet is great no bugs invade your space and stops the draughts. I would highly recommend this tent for families!

Was great in a storm, no rain got in and no bent poles along with no rips or tears….Even with stood the worst thunder and lighting I’ve ever seen.

Love this tent! easy to erect & take down, had 3 days of heavy rain & winds while camping last week, no problem at all with this tent. Only 2 of us so it feels as big as a house. Definitely recommend to anyone. Does anyone know where I can get the tent extension from (blue)? (the outwell Montana 6 footprint is an exact match!)

Fab Tent. Really easy to erect. Stood up to strong winds and very heavy rain. The living space is huge so need to buy some furniture to put in it. The bedroom space is big too with a dividing curtain.

Plenty of vents and large windows which have roll down curtains.

I made a footprint/groundsheet to go under the tent to protect the SIG and for extra insulation. Also helps to see where you need to place it for the side porch.

I would of given this tent 10 out of 10 but when it's raining you can't have the front porch open as the rain comes inside.You have to use the side porch. I shall be looking for a suitable extension/porch for the next camping trip.

Overall a great tent. Definitely recommend.

Bought one and put it up my self - with no practice or knowledge of tunnel tents in about 20 mins to half hour. I did forget to undo the rear upper guy rope, it was then out of reach so never pegged that one down, also didn't realise the bag of guy ropes in the box were to be tied to the eyes on both sides of the tent, I just pegged 4 corners and the vent flaps and thought that was it, until the next day when I saw a similar tent pegged out and sussed the extra guy ropes.

It is nice and dry in rainstorms and has handled the wind it's been in so far. Very roomy living area, it's a great tent and I'm glad I bought it!

I would recommend this tent to friends.

Very easy to erect. Good strong tent. Plenty room. No creepy crawlys with sewn in ground sheet. Easy access front and sides. Plenty light and air. Could easily sleep twelve. The bedroom can be made into one pod, good for young families.

Just bought this tent, we couldn't have a practice at putting up the tent prior to going camping for the weekend due to the great British weather, but it was very easy to put up and we were very impressed how big it was. It has a sewn in ground sheet so no uninvited guests to put up with.

We had heavy rain and no water leaks

Would highly recommend this tent

Manufacturer's Description

Offers a very large living space and complete insect protection for living and sleeping space. The sewn in tent floor offers many benefits:


No rain water entering, since the tent floor and the outer tent are tightly sewn together and sealed.
No pests and no insects in the living and sleeping areas, since all openings are fitted with mosquito netting and screens.
Pre-assembly provides for very quick set-up.

Many lovely details such as the magazine holder and the cable bushing are evidence of the outstanding functionality.

The living space has a floor space of more than 14 m². Enough room for 6 people! And so high only the very tall will have to worry about bending or crawling. The many doors and windows allow plenty of light to enter the common area. The windows feature air-permeable mosquito netting at the top and transparent PVC at the bottom. This clever combination ensures the interior is always breezy and bright.

Breathable inner tent material - ideal for allowing fresh air in. And this means the tent has an ideal climate in all weathers!

Extra resilient water column.. A tent is considered waterproof even at 1,200 mm (47.2’’)! The Milano model offers 5,000 mm (197’’)! A miracle? No!- just miraculous PU-coated polyester! This also makes the tent UV-resistant and especially storm-proof.
