7 Reviews of the Nevada

By: HEJC72  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2009   Rating: 

I bought this tent last year direct from Khyam for just 99. I have the 2009 model (dark blue)

I was looking for a spacious, easy to erect 4 berth tent with a large living area and the Nevada fitted the bill perfectly.

Recently used it during a heavy thunder storm and it didn't move an inch or let a drop of water in.

The 5000HH rating and SIG certainly did their job.

I found the tent very quick and easy to erect - I am a short, overweight, unfit mum of 3 and can pitch it solo in about 20 minutes but it is easier and quicker if there are 2 of you.

After a bit of practice, my 11 year old son and I can have it fully erected, pegged and guyed out in about 10-15 minutes.

Acres of room inside with a good sized bedroom pod which can be divided to give 2 bedroom areas. Storage pockets give you somewhere for small toys, wet wipes, torch etc.

The living area is enormous with excellent head height (225cm) There is a cable entry point for your EHU and velcro cable tidies if you choose to hang a light from the central hanging point.

The 5 large windows let in loads of light, giving a bright and airy feeling to the tent.

You have 3 entry options - 1 door on either side and the whole of the front can also be opened.

One set of king poles are included, allowing you to canopy open one of the doors.

The only thing missing (that would have been a nice touch) are flysceens to the doors, but to be honest, I didn't find this too much of a hardship!

It is such a shame that this excellent tent has been discontinued.

We tend to use it as a luxury 2 berth but it also makes a great family tent for short breaks or for longer holidays.

Bought our Nevada in Jan 2011 after reading that Kyham website had some old examples for 99 on this forum . Used it twice this year once for 3 days to test it out and then for our main 2 week holiday. Loads of space relatively easy to put up. Very pleased with it. Stood up to some strong winds whilst away and torrential rain without any problems.

We bought this tent in 2009 and think its brilliant, my husband is 6 foot and can easily stand upright, great space in bedrooms for double airbeds.We love it, could do with more tabs on doors for wind underneath, but stands up brilliant to heavy rain. Best tent we have had,we have used this tent 3 times now and are just about to take it to Cornwall for another week,you can also cook in the spacious living area,and we have a table that is full dining size.

Bought this tent as an upgrade. Our previous tent was a very small five man/sardine tent which we'd had for a few years. The main reasons for buying this tent were that it had big windows (never, never buy a tent with no windows - it's the most depressing experience when it rains in the daytime and you have to sit in the gloom and listen to the downpour) and that it was tall enough to walk around in without crouching, and had a wide front-opening flap so we could cook under cover if it rained.

We've used it twice since last September - despite the 5000HH rating we found one small leak from a seam this trip (in May). Other than that, the tent seems sound - another improvement on the last tent is that the groundsheet covers the whole of the tent and doesn't stop short at the bedroom area (hurrah! - we only had one unwelcome beetle, who walked in through an open doorway). It's very easy to erect, with shock-corded poles forming hoops - no crossover poles at the centre, which are always a pain - and it now takes the pair of us less than ten minutes to get the outer tent erected and semi-secured, which is handy if it's starting to rain.

One improvement would be flyscreens on the doors. Also it would be good if the manufacturers did their homework on draught exclusion - when the wind whips up, the gap under the doorways at the front and sides (even with the floor liner turned up against it) lets the draught in - we ended up with all our bags and gear wedged up around the gaps to stop the wind rushing up underneath.

But apart from that, it's a great tent - so much room inside (the ample bedroom area takes up about a third of the tent space) and there are storage pockets inside the bedroom and on the outside of the bedroom area walls. And the fact that the two side doors are not directly opposite each other is a design idea worth mentioning - the wind doesn't rush straight through the tent if you have both doors open.

Thought we'd add to the small number of Khyam Nevada reviews, as people are asking about this tent. We find ours extremely spacious - it's just huge, and with terrific headroom, light and airy due to the many windows, and built from really high quality materials - great fabric; quite thick; loaded with 5000H waterproofing, and quality poleset. A rock-solid pitcher. Groundsheet similarly heavyweight. Zips large and strong, and all in all, the quality and size is way, way above average - on top of this, they are around now for 160-ish ; it seems silly really. Khyam thermal carpet (2009) is also very thick and warm - has a thickly padded silver layer underneath, and footprint cheap and useful.

Downsides? - not much, really, except can become draughty when sleeping in windy conditions, due to the usual of the outer doorskins not zipping to the tent on the bottom edges (actually true of most tents - how do they think a few bits of Velcro, or in other cases just zipping the mosquito nets all the way round, will cut it?) Draughts can also blow into the large rear vent, even when closed and guyed down, and then straight through the contrastingly thin bedroom inner material.

Solutions? - well, we've stitched on extra pegging loops to the door bottoms - and; get this; we've just bought a little Quechua 111 pop up, to use as an inside bedroom pod instead of the paper thin bedroom inner! Hey!

Summary - if you're dithering as we did, whilst looking for terrific space and super strong basic quality, go for it! You'll feel all proud when neighbours come up to you to marvel at your absolutely cracking tent. But if you want absolutely all the extras, you may find that's your compromise here, as no mosquito nets on doors (windows only) and you may need to do a bit of your own upgrade on the curtain ties to one or two of the windows, etc. BTW, Obi Camping are a friendly alternative smaller supplier in Wales, where we had a good experience.

Please be aware - this lot only relates to the mid blue, 2009, Chinese made model - you can still pick these up, and the colour is lovely. The pale blue 2010s are made in Poland, so you would have to do your own research for those.

I bought this tent a couple of months ago and have just come back from our first holiday.

Being a single mum going camping with my two, my criteria for buying was: Sown in ground sheet to keep out creepy crawlies for my 7 yr old daughter, weather resistant as didn't want any catastrophes on my own with them, easy to erect with my 13 yr old son who is the same size as me (5'), good full height living space for indoor rainy day time, reasonably priced and smallish pack size to fit in my tiny car.

This tent meets all criteria.

It's fantastic, I can't praise it enough and I've owned a couple of tents before.

It wasn't tested on the weather front we had a few showers but I know with the Khyam 5000 HH rating it won't be a problem.

My son and I practised erecting it a couple of times in the garden before we went and so now we can do it easily, takes bout half an hour.

I like the little extras: velcro loops to hold the electric hook up and our rubbish bag etc, central loop for lantern, pockets inside the bedroom area for the children's night time books and pockets in main living area where we kept the games, drawing stuff, wet wipes etc.

I bought mine direct from the Khyam website and only paid 160 pounds for it as it was last years model Dark blue (like pic above) as opposed to Light Blue the new one (I can live with that)

I love this tent and def recommend it to anyone looking for a medium sized family tent. Hope this helps. Happy camping

Good sized tent, paid 225 quid for it and it is relatively easy to erect. Probably needs 3 people to do it comfortably but two can manage.

Great living space which is handy if the weather is a bit grim.

Not sure when it was manufactured but looking at the pictures it is similar to the Ontario tent (i think). Worth the money in my opinion. Good family tent. It is my first tent and would say that for a beginner it is worth getting. Slept two adults and two children comfortably.
