Outwell Polycotton Tents

Outwell Polycotton Tents presented here in the text are of exceptional quality and with excellent features that include air beams, dark rest bedrooms, tinted windows and much more.

The Outwell is an outstanding brand from Denmark, globally known for its large family camping tents. They build them with classic solid poles and also with air beams, the latter are presented in my separate text.

As for the fabric, the majority of their tents are synthetic but they are building polycotton tents as well. So this is a blend of 65% of polyester and 35% of cotton, and they call it the Outtex Airtech (see its features in the picture below). Note that the same Outtex name is used for their synthetic tents but in this case you always have a number added indicating its waterproof rating.

So these polycotton tents are built from a pleasant breathable material which is still waterproof because of the cotton threads swelling when they get wet. This effect is well-known and it is used in all the cotton and polycotton tents currently on the market.

You have 2 bedrooms plus a large living room, so the tent is a 3-room structure, and its official capacity is 4 people. But it can easily accommodate at least two people more in its fully protected living room.

There are 3 large doors, two on the sides and one double-wide under the porch. All of them are with mesh for ventilation. You also have solid tinted windows. Note that the inner tent with its two doors has a magnetic closure.
