By: Ijhill  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2008   Rating: 

Curiously no one has reviewed this tent already.

However, we brought this tent earlier this year having spent the previous year looking for a replacement for our Diablo 600. We have a Outdoor Revolution Starcamper but wanted something a bit larger and really liked the simple three pole design that is also used in the Outwell, however, this is where the similarity ends.

The Outwell is a quality tent, the fabric is heavy and thick, the zip-in ground sheet in also very thick and heavy-weight, in all the tent gives the impression that it will last for many years.

I pitched it on my own over the May school holidays and found that the weight of all the quality components made this quite difficult and the zip in ground sheet was almost as hard work as the fly-sheet. However, once up the tent was rock solid. On the second day we had high winds and rain, other tents were collapsing around us and the Outwell barely moved, we had brought the Outwell carpet as well and it was almost like being indoors despite the conditions outside.

Although tent is a four berth an I would suggest that it would sleep five in the bedroom section, the living space although not large is comfortable enough for a few chairs and has floor space for kids to play.

The tent kept us warm and dry overnight and blocked out the morning sun sufficiently that the kids slept in, the fabric also stopped the tent getting too hot during the day and also seemed to cut external noise effectively.

Again the tent took some time to take down as well due to the additional steps of the zip-in groundsheet. I would suggest that for a week stay for four this tent is very suitable, for a weekend less so as pitching is a bit of an effort compared to polyester tents. We brought both the footprint and the carpet and these are useful for pitching and increase comfortable respectively.

Once up though the quality shows and hopefully we will have many years use out of the tent.

Manufacturer's Description

The manufacturer has advised that this model has been discontinued.

The compact Trout Lake 4 is ideal for the smaller family or couples who demand a little extra space and superlative quality in a full-featured tent. This three room tunnel comprises two bedrooms and a living room that features the superb panorama front. It is made from our unique Outtex® Airtech polycotton with alloy poles housed in flat pole sleeves, and a Zip-out colour-coordinated groundsheet. Good looks are emphasised by the Outwell Floating Guyline System while the Outwell Wind Stabilizer and Easy Pegging Systems enhance stability and easy pitching. The inner has the new stripe front. Features include a Rain-safe side door and the ability to create a screen house by opening all doors to reveal a backing mesh door panel – a great way to maximise the amount of sun and breeze entering the tent while keeping out bugs.

Recommendation: Smaller families and couples will love the quality of this compact full-featured polycotton tent.
