23 Reviews of the Nevada 3         Showing 01 to 10          Page:   1   2   3

I love this little tent, I bought it from a friend and its been on a fair few camping trips I have managed to put it up myself (but easier with help!)

When its up it feels sturdy. And I must say it was tested the limit when we went to the lakes. Some other tents where ripped from the ground.

Its perfect for 2 people. The bedroom fits a double air bed in, lengthways only. With some room at the end of the bed for our large golden retriever to sleep. The living area is roomy, can store all the usual camping bits and bobs. On those rainy days we have had 2 chairs in the living area. It also has large windows to let light in but they can also be covered up for privacy.

Overall a great tent!

I have just bout this tent preloved as a solo weekender. I LOVE it! I also own a new Cleveland 5 but its hard to dry off hence the Baby N. Great space for 1 or 2, huge bedroom and decent living area. Cant go wrong with this little tent as they are selling for 30-50 used. I added a Vango adventure tarp to make the door rain safe and made a windscreen to match. All in all a happy purchase that will be used till it falls apart.No time soon!

Although we bought this tent in the last part of 2009 for a weekend tent we have only used it this year for the first time. We also have a larger tent for longer stays. It is meant to be a 3 berth tent, but like most tents they would be pushing it to actually accommodate the maximum number of people. We bought it on offer from GoOutdoors and paid 95 for it.

The Nevada 3 is easy to erect only having three poles which are colour coded to make it quicker. It is plenty big enough for two people as long as you don't have too much gear stashed inside. We wouldn't use this tent if we were planning to do much cooking as there is not a lot of room to store everything. We found it plenty big enough though for two camping chairs and a small table. The bedroom comfortably housed a double airbed with some space at the bottom for bags etc.

The nice thing about this tent is that it doesn't take any longer to pitch than a smaller 3 man tent but you can stand up in it, which is always nice when you are confined to your tent in inclement weather.

Although it has only been used for 5 nights in all, we did have chance to test the waterproofing. It passed with flying colours.

Unfortunately this tent is no longer available to buy but Outwell do one that is very similar. We would recommend it for an easy pitch, short stay tent.

Love the headroom in this tent, I've camped twice this year in it,easy to erect solo on a calm day. Advise another pair of hands if windy!

Very roomy for one or two. Bit cosy for three!would take three single airbeds, or one single and a double. Living area takes two chairs and a small table, sig makes it really snug, performed well in rain. No leaks, noisy in high wind. Rocking but thankfully stayed up!Good attention to detail, plenty of vents and mesh screen on door/air vent. One gripe as mentioned in other reviews . Rain comes in door due to steep sloping design when entering and leaving during a shower, will be looking for a small canopy to fit. All in all a lovely tent to use in settled weather.

We took this tent all over Europe this summer and it was great. We specifically picked it as it was easy to pitch and not too large - we were planning a lot of single night stopovers so didn't want to be spending too long putting it up and taking down. Got it down to 10 minutes to put up and 20 minutes to take down and fully pack away. The extra time taking down meant we got it back in the carry sack easily.

Pitching and putting away are easy, and the quality is excellent.

The bedroom is a good size and will take two good size camp beds easily.

The only problem we found was with the entrance in the rain as there is no porch area. But we knew that when we bought it.

However, we were so impressed with Outwell and the design of the tent that we have now invested in the Nevada M and porch for longer holidays in this country.

Great small tent, best things are the headroom, ease to put up and the usual Outwell quality and attention to detail. Only took 10 mins to erect and could probably be done solo with care.

Had three up with a large dog, bit cosy, but ok for a weekender. Daughter and dog slept in pouch area as it's big enough. Great amount of space for two.

Now discontinued though seemingly replaced with the New Nevada S, which seems identical. So footprint for the 'S' should fit the '3'.

We (2 people) spent 1 night in this tent, but could easily have spent longer. I originally bought the tent (£89 from go outdoors) to go solo camping which it will be brilliant for next year. It is supposed to be for 3 people but I think it would be a bit 'cosy' for 3 to 'live' in.

It took us about 15 minutes to pitch but could be done quicker (and solo) with a bit of practise. As we went in October, we took a fan heater. There is a EHU cable entry point.

There is plenty of room in the bedroom pod for a double airbed. We fitted in the airbed, small table with electric lamp and small holdall. In the living area we had a folding chair, stool, electric coolbox and other bits and pieces.

There is plenty of hight to stand up and the sig kept the cold out at night. I agree with others about the sloping door and the guyrope at the front. Like fostermum we also used the orchy canopy (made sense as we already have an orchy) and this really created a lot more space. I unpegged the front guyrope and it didn't make a difference to the stability of the tent. I think I would have had to peg it out if it was really windy though.

A little beauty! I bought the Nevada 3 at the bargain price of 89 from Go Outdoors and what a bargain it is proving to be! My reason for buying it was that I wanted a tent I could pitch solo with enough space to live in if the weather turned but also room for 2 to camp comfortably. I also wanted standing height and a SIG - the Nevada 3 ticks all the boxes. I tested it in my garden where I 'camped' for several nights then a proper camp last weekend.

It has a good sized bedroom, big enough for a double airbed and space for bags etc. The living area seats 2 with a table and storage space and it is a doddle to pitch - I am only 5'2' and not a spring chicken but had no trouble pitching it solo. The only downside is that it only has one doorway and that is steeply sloping at the front - impossible to open the door and keep the rain out when te weather is bad. For this reason I bought a Vango Large canopy which fits a treat and gives the doorway much needed cover as well as giving masses of extra living space which is ideal as a cooking area. (See pics above).

All in all I love this (not so) little tent and would recommend it to anyone providing it is used with a tarp or canopy.

We are also caravanners but needed a small tent for an island party with a small garden pitch! Bought the Nevada 3 for four of us to sleep in and not too expensive. Initially we were going to use it without the inner so there would be lots of space, our pitch however was extremely exposed and we used the inner to add stability! Three of us with enough room in the inner and one in the porch area with the portaloo. Load of space! Fantastic and so much so that we used it again a couple of weeks later instead of the van. Have just bought a Vango large sun canopy and put it up briefly in the garden. It looks as though it would work well and we will look forward to using it in the future.

We are in our 8th year as caravanners but unfortunately found due to the credit crunch a lack of availability for us to make bookings. Therefore through necessity we purchased a Nevada 3. OMG its fabulous,, cant get enough of it. No cleaning cookers, toilets, etc, everything is done outdoors. We love it. Only tiny holdback for this tent is the lack of cover if it rains. On a recent trip out the heavens opened and we had to completely zip up and take cover in my sisters Halfords tent which was waterlogged on the floor due to not having a sealed groundsheet, but was spacious enough for us all to sit and wait out the rain. Can anyone suggest a porch/canopy which will fit this model, we've asked in the usual places but to no avail.
