I forgot to say what a fantastic tent !!!!!!! It felt just like our Sunn camp aps 3006 plus loads of height, space and windows and a fully sewn in ground sheet. i sold the Hartford for this. And have just ordered the canopies. Best tent on the market!!!!!

It seems a long time since the last post on the thread. Have the Montana 6 pole problems been sorted with the 2007 version?  I hope so as I've just bought one!

Hi

Read a bit here:

http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=32&TopicID=124686&PagePosition=1

As well as do a search on Montana poles in the forum.

Best regards

Jens Jakob

I have an Outwell Montana 4
Bought to allow me to stand up in the tent and sit inside in the rain - replaced Khyam Igloo
No poles broken
Puts up fairly easy even on own.
- use guys to pull up evenly
Very pleased
Niggles:
  • One of the internal fabric ties has pulled off
  • there seems to be a gap in the sewing between canvas and plastic groundsheet - will let water in
  • Much more room than igloo overall BUT two bedroom compartments are separated by zip up separator which has line of fabric when unzipped along bottom of bedroom area - so can't fully open area and use as big bedroom as have the fabric in the way. This means the actual sleeping space is less than small igloo tent and won't fit 2 large camp mats next to each other! - thinking of cutting fabric out!


Canopy is a MUST and excellent
Can leave front door open when raining and not get wet! - see below

Have had out on initial week when bought and for a very wet and windy weekend with my pregnant wife.
Think a bit more room would be good and because of bedroom floor issues now think may have been better with Montana 6!

Left a message about broken poles so I thought it about time I updated this thread.

GREAT tent. Easy to pitch but a little more practice needed to get the striking as simple. 2 of us get it up and down with no problems except in strong winds.  Loads of room inside and secure enough to leave our 2 escape artist dogs safely.

Video on the Outwell website a must for repacking.

The only down side is - how do I book a dry day to strike the thing?
