Outwell Indiana Review

The Tent

 

The Indiana 6 berth tent is a spacious well designed  tent with large panorama windows, well ventilated with the unique universal 3+3 inner tent for convenience. Close the mesh doors on those hot evenings to use the large living area as a well ventilated room but keeping out the insects. Other features include the detachable bathtub groundsheets, organiser pockets, lamp holder and zip-off front canopy.

Verdict

 

This is a large 6 berth tent measuring 5.3m x 4m x 2m (6.8m long with sun canopy attached) which is packed into two bags, one for the flysheet and bedroom pods, the second for the poles. The tent has two good sized sleeping pods and a spacious living area and has four generous windows which let's in ample light. The sleeping pods and the side door have a zipped mesh screen which allows for good ventilation of the tent but keeps all the flying insects out on warm nights. There are six ventilation ports, two on each side and two at the rear of the tent which can be either opened or closed depending upon the weather conditions. There are plenty of pockets for storing items along the sides of the tent and also hanging between the bedroom pods. A night light hanging loop is located on the ceiling in the middle of the living area and a series of velcro cable ties are fitted to keep any electric light cabling neat and tidy.

The bedroom pods are spacious enough to sleep 3 adults each but are far more comfortable with two. The pods can be unzipped from each other and one pod rolled away to increase the living area. There are three storage pockets in each pod. When packing the tent way, the bedroom pods can either be removed and packed separately or left in place and packed along with the fly sheet.

I do like the ground sheet for the living area, which can be attached to the inner walls of the tent to reduce drafts or left down to increase the ventilation. I suppose it's the best middle ground between a SIG or non SIG you can decide which.

When erected, the tent is very stable due to what Outwell call their 'Power Stability System', and I'm pleased to say it does seem to work. During two stormy nights the tent behaved itself and there was very little movement during the high winds and rain. There are plenty of bright yellow guy ropes to ensure the tent is well anchored to the ground

I feel the sun canopy gives the tent a nice shape and was also useful on those hot days in July and it can be unzipped and put away in bad weather The hydrostatic head of 5000 mm ensures that in all but the worst tropical storms you and your belonging should stay dry.

I am very pleased with this tent and it fulfils everything I need as a family tent, the only downside is that I do struggle to put it up on my own due to the weight. In calm days it behaves and I can put this up on my own but if there is any breeze I find I do require help...it's not a one person operation.
