1 Reviews of the Dusk 5
By: BRYANMITCH Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2015 Rating:
The Dusk is go outdoors version of this tent. I think it is also sold as the Earth 5. Ok for a weekender as it says on the description but I wouldnt like to subject it to any heavy weather. Easy enough to erect with 2 people flysheet first then hang the inner from colour co-ordinated toggles before inserting the loose bath-tub groundsheet. Inner can then be left in place for all in one pitching next time out.
I thought the gaps between tent walls and the sides of the groundsheet were unacceptably large and resorted to using clothes pegs to nip the front door and groundsheet together at the front door area.Also unimpressed by the fixing system where the groundsheet toggles pass through holes in material flaps extending out from the tent walls-I doubt they would stand up to a windy day.
It is a very light and airy tent.Light coloured outer and white inner. Great for daytimes if you wish to sit in your tent but it also means you will probably be up at daybreak.
In summary. Ok for a cheap introduction to camping or occasional weekend stay for not a lot of money---but not for 'serious' camping.

A roomy and versatile family tent, able to sleep up to 5 people - EXCLUSIVE TO GO OUTDOORS!
The Outwell Dusk 5 Tent is great for active campers, with a generous living space and a large sleeping area which is ideal for families or groups of friends.
The large main area is great for storing all your gear, bikes or camping furniture - letting you relax in total dry comfort when the weather turns bad.
For draught free nights which are free from bugs, the inner has an integral, fully sealed groundsheet and will comfortably sleep up to 5 people.
Ventilation at the rear ensures there is decent airflow to tackle condensation, while the front windows let in plenty of light when you are forced to seal yourself in.
Adjustable pegging points for pitching flexibility
Detachable bathtub groundsheet in storage area for protection and flexibility
The pre-attached adjustable inner makes pitching easy, and can be quickly attached/detached as required
