Outwell Andaman Sea L
(Sleeping Capacity 3 persons)

 

 

The Tent
The Outwell Andaman Sea is from Outwell’s Comfort range of tents and is a 3 berth dome tent and was introduced for the 2007 season. The comfort range of tents is aimed at those who want to upgrade their synthetic tents but do not wish to go to one of the larger family models on the market place. This tent is based on the popular Arizona tent but has the benefit of using Outwell’s tried and tested polycotton flysheet (Airtech). The tent is full height and so affords standing room is easy to erect with plenty of ventilation. The main front door can be turned into a canopy with the supplied steel poles affording a nice area to cook or just chill out under. The tent also has a benefit of a skylight’s to let in the daylight or to allow you to star gaze from with in the tent. All in all this is an ideal tent for couples who require a roomy , quick to erect, non synthetic tent for those weekends away. The tent is made to a very high specification (see below) and is designed to ensure comfort and durability.

Erection / Pitching

The tent being a dome tent is easily erected, the main dome structure having three supporting poles all of which are colour coded. Once the tent is out the bag you may find it easy to loosely peg the four corners out first. Snap the poles together and insert into the matching colour sleeve. Although this type of tent is easily erected by a single person, with the additional weight of the poly cotton flysheet it is easier if a person enters the tent and supports the weight prior to locating the poles. Locate the poles one at a time to the ring and pin system, once all poles are secured, hang the inner tent and fit the porch bathtub groundsheet. Finally secure the tent using the pegging points on the tent as well as pegging out the attached guy ropes.    

 

Pros and Cons

 

Pros:

Cons:

Flysheet first or all in one pitching

Easy to erect

Spacious

Well ventilated

Stable

Nothing to report

 

 

 

 

 

The Cost
Around £250 for this seasons model and there is also a footprint and carpet available.

 

The Verdict

This is a great quality tent for a couple who require an easy to erect quality polycotton tent. The tent would be a great tent for touring, being easy to camp and decamp with plenty of room for your gear and with the benefit of a porch for cooking when the weather is poor. We would recommend the purchase of the additional footprint to protect the bottom of the inner tent and also to allow a quicker decamp as the mud and dirt should be confined to the footprint.
