How do Outwell’s Quick & Quiet Inner Doors work?Comfortable sleeping is at the top of Outwell’s agenda and the Quick & Quiet Inner Door enables campers to leave and access bedrooms without noise or fuss. There is a silent magnetic strip closure down the centre, which can be parted easily to slip through and will close automatically without a sound. The development of this award-winning Outwell Quick & Quiet Inner Door innovation was a huge hit with campers and proved to be an award winner with outdoor media advocating its inventiveness, effortlessness and hands-on value. Its soft and silent magnet closure ensures other campers are not disturbed by noisy zip opening through the night, which can be especially tricky if your children are light sleepers or the parents have had one too many. Upon the success of the inner door, Outwell have extended the practical use of this ingenious innovation by developing the Quick & Quiet System for the wall between the living area and the third zone in our three-zone tent. You will find out more about this later, when we discuss the Outwell Premium Collection, the Outwell Superior Collection, the Outwell Prime Air and the Outwell Imperial Air Collection. The Quick & Quiet Access can be closed fully with magnets, backed by a zipper, and by zip-up window curtains. Depending on how much privacy, space and light you want in each section of the tent, you can roll away each half of the Quick & Quiet Access separately. If it is rolled away completely and toggled to the sides of the tent, you are left with one massive living area. A very simple, but ingenious addition to the Outwell tents!
Why do Outwell’s tents all have Dark Inner Bedrooms?There are other features that support Outwell’s Sleep Comfortable idea and there’s so much more to experiencing Outwell® sleep comfort than just their comfy beds and cosy sleeping bags. Outwell’s designers have invented an all-round answer for campers to experience fab nights asleep in their large bedrooms. They have managed to cut out external light in bedrooms by using Dark Inners and dark flysheet panels. Picture it now, tucked up snugly in the darkness, there are no external light sources to disturb a full night’s sleep for you and your loved ones. That dark effect is especially welcome on sunny mornings………..who want the kids to be awake at sunrise and then exhausted and horribly cranky by lunchtime?! The dark panels in the tent fabric used above bedrooms support this dark Inner and emphasise the contrast with the bright living area that is present in all the Outwell tents, many with a wide Panorama outlook. Outwell’s standard bedrooms are generous compared to the industry standards, but nearly all of the ranges we will discuss below have bigger Premier bedrooms (215cm in length) and some have Ambassador Master Bedrooms, that you can even fit a bit of camping furniture in too, with plenty of room to stretch out. These Ambassador Master Bedrooms offer full headroom, a large floor area, mains cable entry points, storage pockets and a generous 230cm length.
How do Outwell achieve excellent Ventilation in their tents?Any seasonal camper knows that ventilation in your tent is key to a comfortable adventure. Flexible cross-flow ventilation is fundamental to maintaining a comfortable atmosphere inside all tents. Not only throughout the day, especially when doors are closed to keep out wind and rain, but also for sleep comfort when the whole family is tucked in for the night. Outwell’s adjustable cross-flow ventilation options, boosted by high and low vents protected from the elements, ensure Outwell campers can stay in control and in comfort whatever the weather. For front ventilation there are two zip sliders on the proofed fabric and insect-proof mesh side doors so that you can pick from a flexible variety of ventilation scenarios. Depending on what the time of day and what your needs are, different door opening options can be selected for easily adjusted access and airflow. The new Rear Ventilation system for Outwell involves an aerodynamic design that allows campers to regulate temperature and fresh air flow in a tent without compromising stability and shelter. There is a sewn-in mesh screen that keeps the tent insect-free. Bedroom inner tent vents have curtains to adjust airflow, whilst still keeping day light out. All the Outwell family tents now have full insect proof mesh behind the tent side doors that can be opened fully to allow plenty of extra ventilation whilst keeping insects out. There are also low vents (also insect-proof) made from mesh panels positioned beside and opposite tent side doors that can be opened or closed easily to adjust the air flow at floor level for extra ventilation if it is especially warm weather.
Outwell’s HookTrack System explained!Outwell’s HookTrack System innovation really is ingenious………a clever yet completely undemanding notion designed to deliver safety and convenience for you campers. It is completely reliable in function and so easy to use. It allows you to securely route wires around the inner of your home away from home. Wires for lighting and other electrical devices are therefore out of the way, avoiding breakage and trip hazards. Also, you can put up lights wherever you need them and you can dry light items like towels, teatowels and coats on lines. You can attach HookTrack clips to the unobtrusive piping (durable and sturdy, transparent piping) of the HookTrack so you can securely and neatly fit lighting, like the Outwell LED strip lights, which really adds a whole new level of convenience to tent living.
Why is it important to consider the material the tent is made from?
Another very important factor you must consider when buying a tent is the flysheet material. What will suit you best will depend upon how long your camping trips might be, what times of year you will want to go camping, where you may like to adventure, home or abroad, and the budget you have. Outwell tailors all their own fabrics to meet specific needs of the targeted family camper. The technology behind each fabric works in collaboration with the tent’s design to provide the best possible performance and ensure the perfect holiday experience. When it comes to designing a family tent, Outwell consider every aspect in order to meet and exceed expectations. This includes the materials used and they work very closely with material manufacturers to create unique quality fabrics that enhance performance to ensure a family can camp in comfort, safety and style. All their fabrics are based on either 100 per cent polyester fibres that are treated and woven to maximise resistance to UV-light and the rigours of outdoor life, or their own blend of cotton and polyester to produce a breathable technical cotton that helps maintain a tent’s microclimate at a comfortable level, not dependant on the temperature outside. It also really minimises condensation on the inside walls of the tent. Outwell’s polyester fabrics are PU-coated which provides muchly elevated levels of waterproofness and the tight weave of Outwell’s polycotton fabric is supported by a hard-wearing water repellent treatment, which enables it to resist water permeation until the cotton swells to close the gaps in the weave so no more water can enter. However, water vapour can still pass across the fabric to inhibit internal condensation. Let’s take a closed look at each of Outwell’s tent materials, so that you can decide which one will give the optimum performance for you and your family.
Outwell’s standard material, Outtex 3000 Select is anything but standard!Outwell’s standard tent material, the hardworking Outtex® 3000 Select is anything but standard. Ideal for general camping, the fabric is a great-all-rounder that will keep you dry and comfortable throughout your summer camping holidays so you can kick back and relax. Made from high quality polyester with a weight of just 64g/m2, it’s lighter than our other tent fabrics making it a brilliant choice for touring and shorter breaks. The material’s Taffeta weave offers strength, while all-weather protection comes from its special features. These include a UPF 30+ rating for in-built sun protection and a waterproof PU-coating with a 3,000mm hydrostatic head. This means the tent can handle all but the most extreme weather conditions. The fabric also is fire resistant with a ISO5912 rating, which is the industry standard for anti-flammability. The Outwell Encounter range is made from the Outtex 3000 Select fabric.
Why is the Outwell Outtex 4000 Select fabric stronger than the Outtex 3000?Looking for a tough, high quality tent fabric that can meet the rough and tumble of outdoor family life? The Outtex® 4000 Select fits the bill perfectly. The Taffeta polyester weave is stronger and more durable than our standard tent material, making it even more resistant to rips and tears. While the material’s waterproof PUcoating has a 4,000mm hydrostatic head, which is 30% higher than our standard material. This makes it watertight even on the rainiest days. As most campers like to follow the sun, you’ll be pleased to know the fabric also has a UPF 30+ rating, to keep your family safe from harmful rays. A little heavier than the standard model due to the extra strength and waterproofing, the fabric weighs 73g/m2 , which is still pretty lightweight for easy travels. A ISO5912 rating, which is the industry standard for fire resistant tent materials rounds up the fabric’s features. The Outwell Prime Air and the Selection collections of tents are made from this Outtex 4000 Select material.
Which tent fabric will allow me to camp throughout the year in the UK?Do you love to camp throughout the year? Then you need to go pro. Made for serious campers, Outtex® 6000 Pro is a top-level polyester fabric that is packed with amazing features. Like the reinforced Oxford weave that makes it tougher and more resistant to rips and tears than other polyester fabrics. Or the PU waterproof coating with a whopping 6,000mm hydrostatic head, which is twice that of our standard tent fabric. The higher the hydrostatic head, the more waterproof a tent is – and the 6000 Pro offers peace of mind, whatever the weather. The 6000 Pro also has our highest level of sun protection, with a UPF 50+ rating to keep you safe from harmful rays. These additional features do make the fabric slightly heavier than our other polyester materials, weighing in at 108g/m2 . But this is still light enough for easy carrying from car to campsite. As expected, the material meets the industry standard ISO5912 rating for fire resistance. The Outwell Premium Collection of tents is made from the Outtex 6000 Pro.
What makes the Outwell Outtex 6000 Endurance RS so special?Live life outdoors anytime, anywhere with Outtex® 6000 Endurance RS (Ripstop). Built to last, the Endurance RS is top of the league of tent fabrics. The next level up to the Outtex® 6000 Pro, the Endurance RS is a dense material with the addition of a double wall ripstop. This makes the fabric exceptionally strong and prevents small tears spreading. Meaning the fabric can handle whatever you throw at it, making it a great investment that will last for years. On top of this, the Endurance RS boasts a 6000 hydrostatic head to withstand any downpour, while a UPF 50+ rating keeps you safe on sunny days. The Outtex® 6000 Endurance RS is tough enough to handle even the most extreme weather. The Outwell Superior Air Collection is made from this Outtex Endurance RS fabric.
Which Outwell fabric will inhibit condensation the most?The Outtex® Airtech takes camping comfort to new levels. Made from polycotton, which is a polyester and cotton mix; this material combines the best of both fabrics. Extra breathable, the material keeps the tent fresh and ventilated, even on the hottest or most humid of days. While on rainy days, the Outtex® Airtech’s special water repellent coating and dense weave means rain will bead and roll off. At the same time, the fabric’s natural fibres will swell, increasing the water resistance yet allowing water vapour to escape, eliminating condensation inside the tent. Another amazing feature is that the fabric’s heavy weight acts like a noise barrier, blocking ambient sounds from outside while you’re in the tent so it is easier to relax during the day and sleep at night. Polycotton is not a light material, weighing in at 210g/m2 , and therefore not suited for backpacking or touring. But it is exceptionally tough and durable, offering the ultimate in camping comfort for family summer holidays for many years to come. The Outwell Imperial Air Collection is made from this Outtex Airtech fabric.
You can stay safe from the elements all day long with Outtex® 1500 Select Silver. This high quality, lightweight polyester fabric with a weight of 97g/m2 has a special heat reflective silver coating, which helps to keep things shady and cool when you’re sitting under it. It has fabulous sun protection, which comes from the UPF 50+ rating, so the whole family can happily eat, dine and play in comfort, even in hot sunny weather. The PU-coating works as a waterproof barrier, providing a 1,500mm hydrostatic head. This is easily enough to cope with light to moderate rain showers. For extra safety, the material is also fire resistant, giving you the perfect cover for summer fun in the garden, park or campsite.
With a UPF 50+ rating, Outtex® 1500 Pro Silver material has been designed to keep you safe from the sun. This hardwearing polyester fabric with a weight of 155g/m2 features an Oxford weave that is stronger and more durable than standard weave, making it a great choice for windy beaches, gardens or campsites. A heat-reflective silver coating on the inne,r helps keep the fabric cooler and more comfortable to sit under. Rain protection comes in the form of a special PU-coating, which adds a waterproof barrier and hydrostatic head of 1,500mm. This will keep you dry in light and moderate rain showers. On top of this, the material is fire resistant, so you and your family can stay protected all summer long.

Let’s have a look at the main features of the Outwell Prime Air Collection of tents, that will help to make your adventure away as relaxed and fun as possible. The Outwell Dark Inner system incorporates a dark roof and side panels which hugely help to reduce light entry into the bedrooms, which definitely aids optimum sleep quality. Maybe you have little ones that will still need an early night every so often, or perhaps you just love a lie-in! There is nothing worse than the whole family being up as the sun rises and then tires and cranky by lunch time. This Dark Inner system, along with the dark curtains over the mesh vents to further control light entry, will give you the peace of mind that all your campers sleep needs will be met! As we have discussed earlier, the Outwell Quick and Quiet Doors, with the magnetic strips sewn into the vertical seam of the inner doors, allows you an easy and noiseless entry and exit to your bedrooms. No more tense, slow zip openings when you need the toilet in the night and you are afraid of waking up the children! Although the Outwell Prime Air tents do also have zips for a more secure closure if you want it……the best of both worlds!
What is Outwell’s Rigid Air System and Aerodynamic Storm Protection?The Outwell Prime Air tents have been cleverly designed to have Aerodynamic Storm Protection, as the aerodynamic shape of the tent ensures as much stability as possible in windy conditions. Another great feature, that will allow you to travel and stay safely protected in the unpredictable british weather.
Outwell’s Rigid Air System in their Prime Air tents consists of individual tubes that are very simply inflated and deflated separately via easy access external valves. If you are ever unfortunate enough to have the unlikely event of one of the very robust air beams to be punctured, all the other beams will remain totally unaffected, ensuring you and your loved ones will be safe from the elements, until it can be fixed. These Prime Air tents also have Toggle Up Curtains, which can be easily and conveniently rolled up with toggle fixings on each window. This feature allows you to have as much daylight in your tent as you require or as much privacy!
The Outwell Prime Air tents are all made from the fabulous Outtex 4000 Select material. This is a very tough, high performance tent fabric that meets the rough and tumble of outdoor family life with absolute ease. The Taffeta polyester weave is much stronger and more durable than other standard tent materials, making it even more resistant to rips and tears. While the material’s waterproof PUcoating has a 4,000mm hydrostatic head, which is 30% higher than the Outwell 30000 Select material, ensuring you will stay dry even on very rainy days. Let’s be honest, we all love camping in sunny weather, but it is important to protect our loved ones from UV so you’ll be pleased to know the fabric also has a UPF 30+ rating, to keep your family safe from harmful rays. Prime Air tents made from this Outtex 4000 material are slightly heavier than the standard model due to the extra strength and waterproofing, the fabric weighs 73g/m2. However, this is still pretty lightweight making for easy transport and storage. Most campers would prefer to have the extra protection of the elements and longevity of the tent, along with a slight increase in weight. With an ISO5912 rating, it completely meets the industry standard for fire resistant tent materials.
If you are looking for a smaller Outwell Prime Air tent, the Outwell Lindale 3 person Air tent is ideal for touring and although it could sleep three in a premier bedroom, it is an ideal tent for couples wanting to adventure in style and comfort. The pre-shaped air tubes ensure great stability in windy conditions, but also ensure you will have ample headroom as it is designed to have steeper sides to maximise the possible internal space. The Outwell Lindale has great air flow, due to the Rear Ventilation System that offers options from fully open to sealed up due to a concealed zip. The D-shaped frontage, with the stylish rain-safe canopy gives shelter from the rain or a sun shade on warmer expeditions. The Outtex 4000 Select fabric has a 4.000mm hydrostatic head and along with its hard-shell design, it will keep you dry and warm. As you would expect, the full mesh panels behind the door allow air circulation, but keep the nasty biting bugs out. Along with the HookTrack System for versatile positioning of lights and for hanging items (described above), the mesh pockets in the inner tent help you to keep all your important camping equipment and luxuries safe and handy. It really does have a bright, cheerful internal atmosphere, mainly due to the light, warm toned flysheet roof and the villa like construction. If you are a small family or just a couple who like the extra space, then you may want to consider the Outwell Lindale 5 person Air tent. For not a lot more money, you are gaining a great deal more space, but still have all the excellent Outwell Prime Ait tent features.
If you are looking for a tent within the Outwell Prime Air Collection, but you would like additional living space the Outwell Parkdale 4 person Air tent is a fabulous family tent that literally packs tonnes of features in, but is still compact. It really is the perfect shelter for quick, last-minute getaways with the whole family in tow. As with all the Outwell Air tents, it can be pitched in a matter of minutes, thanks to it’s easy to use inflatable system, so you will be sat back, with your feet up, favourite tipple in hand, within no time at all.

Are you looking for a large family Outwell Prime Air Tent?The Hook Track system in the Outwell Parkdale is ideal for suspending lights and storage as it runs around the edge of the roof and then also through the middle. The Quick and Quiet magnetic doors make sure there is no disturbing zip noises in the night, by just gently pulling the magnetic strips apart and then they magically close behind you. However, if you want the dogs or the children more securely contained, there is a zip closure as well. If this layout fits the bill for your family, but you find it hard to travel light, or you just like the extra space, the Parkdale also comes in a bigger size, the Outwell Parkdale 6 person Air Tent which will almost certainly have everything larger families need for relaxed and convenient camping trips whatever the weather!

Which Outwell Prime Air Tent is new to the collection for 2022?New for the 2022 season in the Outwell Prime Air Collection is the Outwell Knightdale 8 person Air Tent, that can sleep up to eight in three bedroom compartments. One of the sleeping compartments is at the front of the tent, which offers the possibility of sleeping a little distance away from the children if they are older, or allowing your older children some independence away from the rest of the family. With a huge, light and airy, central living space, this is a brilliantly design family tent. If you are interested in the newest Outwell tent designs, but don’t want such a large tent then the Outwell Jacksondale 5 person Air tent or the Outwell Avondale 5 person tent (which also come in six person size, Outwell Avondale 6 person Air Tent), could suit you down to the ground.

This is a super strong, durable material, with a double ripstop weave for excellent tear strength, meaning small tears won’t spread. With a waterproof hydrostatic head of 6000mm, your Outwell Superior Air tent can’t withstand any downpour the unpredictable British weather can offer.

You’ll relax in style confident you can enjoy all-weather camping in a trusted base for treasured family holidays, with any of the Outwell Superior Air, but what other features do these amazing tents offer? Their Power Air System is made up of very robust individual tubes that are easily inflated and deflated separately via external valves, meaning in the unlikely event one air tube is punctured, the rest of the tent still performs, keeping you and your loved ones safe from the elements, until it can be repaired. The Superior Air tents have an extra tube can be attached manually which gives the overall structure even more stability. Also, the aerodynamic shape of the Outwell Superior Air tents gives Aerodynamic Storm Protection, ensuring optimum stability in windy conditions. Great peace of mind if you are adventurous and don’t want one or two windy nights stop you and your loved ones from having fun.
The Outwell Superior Air tents have Zip-Up Curtains which allow you to choose exactly how much daylight you would like to enter or precisely the amount of privacy you require. The curtains have a clever zip attachment system, which is very quick and easy to use. Even though these tents have a bright, airy feel inside the main living area, the bedrooms all have a Dark Inner. The dark roof and side panels greatly reduce light entry into the sleeping quarters, which really helps to optimise the sleep quality of your camping crew. If you have little ones in tow that need an early night, these dark inner bedrooms will help you settle them quickly and hopefully will stop them waking the whole family at sun rise, maybe evening allowing the adults a lie-in! There are also dark curtains over the mesh vents which further control light entry. As with all the Outwell tents we have discussed so far, these Superior Air tents also have the fabulous Quick and Quiet Inner Door system, which are magnetic strips sewn into the vertical seam of the inner doors. They literally open with a minimal push and them magically close behind you. A great feature if you hate the midnight, tense, slow zip opening so as not to wake the crew, that always occurs when you have had a few too many that evening.
The ventilation in these Outwell Superior Air tents is definitely worth looking into. To get the ultimate rest and relaxation on your holidays, superior ventilation is essential for maintaining a perfect inner climate. Outwell have positioned their large vents optimally to amplify unhindered airflow around you tent and this is enhanced by large mesh panels behind exterior doors to boost the flow of air, but remain bug-free inside. Excess condensation is ultimately controlled by the ability to crack the main door open at the top to catch any breeze. All vents are easily accessible and as you can manipulate them from closed to fully open, you can choose the airflow through your holiday home.

The industry standard is to give 60cm sleeping width per person, but Outwell’s Imperial Air Tents allow a luxurious 70 to 80cm, giving campers much more freedom to relax, making it a lot easier to settle the children, as they are not packed in like sardines! They also offer Ambassador Master Bedrooms, which means they are 230cm in length…….even the tallest in your family will be able to stretch out! The generous floor space, along with full standing height, mains cable entry points for charging all your devices, and the dark inner really mean you can camp in comfort and style. There is even room for camping furniture in these Outwell Ambassador Master Bedrooms. The main living area is filled with light because it has so many windows and not only do the bedrooms have the Quick and Quiet inner doors, but the door between the tent zones are also Quick and Quiet Access, meaning you can be as quiet as a mouse when you get up in the night and there is no worry about waking the little ones with loud zip noises. If you are worried about containing any of your group more securely, then don’t as there are ancillary zips which provide firmly fixed closure when required. This easy to pitch tent has a vertical front wall that maximises the internal area and you will find the wet zone a very practical feature, allowing you to store outside gear, shed of wet clothes or rub the damp dogs down before entering. This third zone also has a groundsheet footprint with an integrated bath-tub style front groundsheet…..great for keeping water out. The Outwell Sewn-in Groundsheet is sealed in, which is the very best way to keep draughts, insects, dirt and water out. It gives all weather protection from the ground upwards. The Outwell Mountain Lake 5 ATC also has a wing section offering great versatility to be used as a lounge area, kids play den, storage or an extra sleeping area if unexpected guests arrive. The HookTrack System is made up of strategically placed tracks that allow you to place special hooks from which to run cables and attach light weight accessories and storage.
The Outwell Mountain Lake 5 ATC Ait Tent also benefits from the Outwell Wind Brace system, which uses supportive webbing in key positions alonmg the air tubes to provide enhanced stability, minimising any movement experienced along its length in stormy conditions. It really is an all-round great tent for active families, who want to adventure in the unpredictable British weather and further afield in warmer climates.
Do Outwell make tents for very large camping parties in the Imperial Air Collection?If you like all the features, space and peace of mind that this Imperial Air tent has to offer, but you would like something bigger then look closely at the Outwell Wood Lake 7 ATC Air Tent, as it has all the same features, but more room and a third bedroom. You will without doubt enjoy campsite life to the full in the large living area, which is especially well ventilated by its mesh doors, whilst keeping you safe from the biting bugs! Sleeping up to seven in three spacious bedrooms, it is ideal for the larger family or to share with friends. It is nearly 8 m in length and 470 cm wide. Its aerodynamic shape and Rigid Air System, means it will easily hold up in stormy weather, but the breathable characteristics of the tent fabric, Outtex Airtech (described in detail above), means it will perform very well in hot weather, giving you the peace of mind to travel far, what ever the weather. With its superb sleek Scandinavian design, you will be the envy of the campsite for many years to come.
Would an Outwell Poled Tent work for me as well as an Outwell Air Tent?If you are looking for a tent on a much tighter budget, but still want style and quality, Outwell can most definitely still cater for your adventures. The Outwell Encounter Collection of poled tents are very versatile, quickly and easily pitched, sleek in designs, sleeping 2-5, and have consistently been a firm favourite with active car, biking and walking campers. Freedom, flexibility and compact packed size are the main reasons for this. For couples, young families and groups of friends, the lighter weights of these tunnel and dome styles are simply perfect for touring holidays. The inners of the Outwell Encounter tents can cleverly be left in place when packing up, so that re-erecting these tents is quick and simple. If you like the idea of exploring and moving on each day, you’ll find the ease of pitching a great benefit. Packed with Outwell design features in a selection of smart designs with sporty colourways, all feature Dark Inner bedrooms cutting out daylight to let you enjoy a long night’s sleep to get ready for new adventures outdoors. The dark roof panels amd side panels in the bedrooms, reduces light entry, which is not only fab for lie-ins, but allows you to settle the little ones earlier at night and hopefully ensure that they won’t wake up when the sun rises! Ensuring you enjoy a comfortable atmosphere in your tent, the Outwell Rear Ventilation System lets you manipulate temperature and airflow in the Earth designs. You can simply adjust fresh air flow in your tent bedroom with the Outwell Rear Ventilation System, which offers options from fully open to zip-sealed tight, to suit your preference and changing weather conditions, keeping you and your loved ones cool when you need it and snug on colder evenings. The Cloud models in the Outwell Encounter collection do not need this rear ventilation system. They have flexible access to the inner tent and versatile ventilation adjustment to suit weather conditions can be controlled via a neat rear entrance.
These Outwell Encounter tents have a robust structure due to the Duratec poles. These have great strength and rigidity as Outwell use their own fibreglass-based blend. They all come with a detachable Bathtub Groundsheet, which is a very durable floor covering with upturned sides that effectively cuts out draughts, water entering and crawling bugs. As it can be easily removed, it is very easy to clean and then fast to re-attach. The Toggle-Up curtains allow you to choose the amount of light entering your home away from home, as the curtains have conveniently placed fixings at each window. The Outwell Encounter tents also have the Outwell Wind Guard system, which involves guy lines that link the outer with the poles and with the pegs for enhanced stability in windy conditions.
These Outwell Encouter Collection of tents are made from Outwell’s standard tent material, the hardworking Outtex® 3000 Select. However, it really is anything but standard. Ideal for general camping, the fabric is a great-all-rounder that will keep you dry and comfortable throughout your summer camping holidays so you can kick back and relax. It is made from high quality polyester and with a weight of just 64g/m2 , it’s much lighter than the other Outwell tent fabrics making it a brilliant choice for touring and shorter breaks. The material’s Taffeta weave offers strength, while all-weather protection comes from its special features. These include a UPF 30+ rating for in-built sun protection and a waterproof PU-coating with a 3,000mm hydrostatic head. This means the tent can handle all but the most extreme weather conditions. The fabric also is fire resistant with a ISO5912 rating, which is the industry standard for anti-flammability.
Which excellent performing 2-man, lightweight tent would allow me to go on hiking holidays?If you are a couple who loves hiking, or biking holidays then the Outwell Earth 2 tent is ideal due to its low weight, small pack size, but still excellent, proved performance. This compact home away from home poled tent has ample room for two and a neat useful porch over its wide entrance, adding extra shelter for your camping gear, shade from the sun or stripping off wet gear in the rain. It really is fast and easy to pitch, making it really easy to move on each day with no stress, making adventuring far and wide hassle free. It’s a very comfortable way to stay close to nature, as the rear can also be opened, which also helps ventilate the tent very well. If you have older, more independent children, this Outwell Earth 2 tent can act as a great annex to the family tent, giving them more freedom and the rest of the family more space! If you like more space, or your camping entourage is bigger then you can also get the Outwell Earth 3 tent, the Outwell Earth 4 tent and the Outwell Earth 5 tent. All have the smart tent design features discussed above and will allow you and your loved ones to travel wherever, whenever!
If you prefer a more dome-shaped tent, that is still very compact and easy to carry around then the Outwell Encounter Cloud tents are worth investigating. Comparing the Earth 3 person and the Cloud 3 person- the Earth tent has an internal height of 120cm and a length of 410cm, whereas the Cloud tent is taller, 130cm, but slightly shorter with a length of 330cm. The Outwell Cloud 3 Tent is a poled tent, with a low weight and small pack size. It has a wide entrance with a great porch covering that extends your shelter. Again, like the Earth design, they are very easy to erect and take down, making adventurous camping hassle free. It also comes in various sizes and you can choose from the Outwell Cloud 5 Tent or the Outwell Cloud 5 Plus Tent. This latter tent is also for 5 happy campers, but has a larger standing height of 190cm and it is nearly 1 metre longer in length.
How do the Outwell Select Tents differ from the Outwell Encounter tents?With smart, contemporary fabric colours, the Outwell® Select Collection of proven, practical designs is ideal for couples and young families seeking comfort, space and style at competitive prices. A slightly higher budget than the Outwell Encounter Tents is needed, but you get a great deal of extra features, space and technology, enabling you to have greater peace of mind when you and on your family travels.

Dark roof and wall panels with curtains over the mesh vents reduce light entry to enhance sleep quality. These Premier bedrooms not only allow you to relax in comfort with all the devices you would have at home, but also enable you to settle the kids early if you wish and hopefully keep them sleeping long past sunrise. The innovative and unique Outwell Quick & Quiet Inner Doors enable you to stealthily and silently move around the tent during the night time, all adds to the wonderful sleep experience you will encounter in these Outwell Select tents. With silent magnetic strip closure down the centre, and zips along the floor, they ensure closure but can be opened and closed without a sound.
What is the Outwell Wind Stabilizer System in the Select Collection?The Outwell Wind Stabilizer System 8 uses a strong hook and loop fastening system as a direct attachment point for the flysheet and tent pole. This really is an effective innovation which keeps the whole tent stable whatever the weather.

As most campers like to follow the sun, you’ll be pleased to know the fabric also has a UPF 30+ rating, to keep your family safe from harmful rays. A little heavier than the standard model due to the extra strength and waterproofing, the fabric weighs 73g/m2 , which is still pretty lightweight for easy travels.

This tent really is ideal for families and groups of friends seeking space and camping comfort,as it has full standing height in the main living area, a deep front canopy for rain and sun shelter, a large D-shaped front door allowing great views of the campsite around you and large tinted windows that let light in, but also reduce glare and ensure privacy, along with the Toggle-Up curtains.

These are both tunnel tents, with the three-zone design of wet room, main living area and Ambassador Master Bedrooms.
