3 Reviews of the Montpellier 4
By: Hillhopper Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2010 Rating: Date: 28/01/2014
I was given one of these as a group were throwing it out. A couple of small tears in outer fabric repaired successfully. I have a Kyham tourer 200 for anything over a couple of days but recently used the Wynnster at the end of October with forecast storms in lakes using one bedroom only as we were moving from site to site. It was quick and easy to put up, provided good protection from the weather and plenty of space for two with the dog. Easily gets a double airbed into the bedroom for a comfy night and plenty of headroom. To date I have used this tent 3 times and its always done the business. A good tent when you need space but want to site hop.

Quality control is none existant, all the seams leaked in light rain and when the rain got heavier it was like standing in a shower! the fabric of the tent had no waterproof qualities at all. When the wind picked up, even though we were quite sheltered the tent may as well have been made of tissue paper and matchsticks! The poles snapped like twigs and the fabric ended up looking like xmas garlands!

Having a teenager that wanted her own room but not responsible yet for her own pup tent, we were looking for a vis a vis style tent to replace our Outwell Carolina (1 bedroom) , due to already owning a smaller vis a vis Khyam tent we use for 1 nighters we had a look at this Wynnster tent due to now being owned by the same company.
This tent is identical to the Khyam Montpellier 4 (and subsequent 6 & 8 man tents) apart from the colour and HH rating but with only 2000HH separating them its not a big thing to us. (This one is 3000HH the Khyam is 5000HH)
The tent was so easy to put up with only 4 poles to contend with it could probably be done by one person (unless its windy but that goes for all tents).
It is very roomy inside and we had 2 adults, 1 child and a dog it would probably be on the small side for a 2.2 family but saying that it would be an ideal weekend tent for those families due to the ease of putting it up and down.
The bedrooms were ample for us but we use SIM's as airbeds take up a huge amount of space so can't comment if one fits adequately I should imagine so though. There are 2 pockets each in the bedrooms for storing small items.
The living area is ample again with enough space for a kitchen set up (in the pictures) 2 chairs, table and dog lol and other bits and pieces.
I'm a huge fan of vis a vis style tents regardless so the concept isn't new to us but its very practical when you have older children who want their space away from the parents or when you want to remove a bedroom for extra living space and this tent does the job in that respect.
There are 4 windows in all, 2 at the rear of the tent one which is split and half of it fully opens up. We are unsure why but we presume its if you want to cook inside the tent and the steam can escape (but we all know you shouldn't cook inside a tent) but never the less a quirky touch.
Then there are 2 huge windows at the front on the door all windows have their own curtain blinds.
Overall its a good practical tent that we did like and it did the job we bought it for. However it does have some downsides which are reflected in our rating of 8/10.
Although it has a SIG this doesn't fully close at the door, they overlap so no problem with wind/rain but there is a gap at the bottom and if you have a dog or a toddler I can see this as being a very easy escape route (as we found with the dog who spotted it straight away).
The lack of fly screen was very irritating but then we are used to one and prefer to use that instead of having the porch poles up to open the tent up.
I wish the door was split into 2 for practicality as its a very large wide door.
The tent quality isn't of high standard with many cotton threads hanging down, some cosmetic flaws such as the trim didn't match together in one part (one was higher than the other) and there were various bits of seam tape on parts it shouldn't be including a door toggle so I had to cut all the tape off to make it usable although it doesn't affect the tent it wasn't what we were expecting and makes you wonder what sort of quality control they have in place.
That said it rained on our first night and it kept dry, we didn't have too much condensation due to the gap in the bottom of the door, we would have preferred more ventilation points but it wasn't a big issue.
There is a canopy to be bought for the larger versions which we may enquire about purchasing if it fits this smaller version and there is also the obligatory footprint and carpet if you want it.
Overall a good enough tent if quality control was better it would have been perfect.

The simple tunnel design makes the Montpellier 4 simple and quick to erect. Angled pole ferrules maximise headroom and the fully sewn in groundsheet makes the living and sleeping areas comfortable, cosy and free from creepy crawlies. Simply a great touring tent.
