1 Reviews of the Hornet XL Smart Air

By: IngridCat  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2015   Rating: 

We bought the Hornet for our family of four and are very pleased with it. I think that fitting six would however be rather a tight squeeze in the sleeping area. The living area is great with plenty of space and the quality of the tent is impressive and feels much more substantial than our other smaller and cheaper four man Outwell tent.

The small canopy area at the front is useful for keeping shoes and other bits and bobs in and provides a covered space to store things overnight if it rains.

The Air Beam system is good and avoids struggling with poles but it can take a while to inflate and to ensure you get as much air out as possible when you pack it away so you can fit it in the bag! We did also have one beam explode but this was our fault for slightly over inflating it so I'm not sure how common this problem is. The beams can be easily replaced.

Overall this is a fabulous family tent and a real investment that will last years.
