The Outdoor Revolution Airedale 6.0s Tent is a six-berth tent, in a tunnel design for optimum living space, full standing height and great sleeping quarters, with 235cm depth. The Airedale 6.0s has improved mesh ventilation, allowing a greater airflow throughout the tent, with the idea of reducing condensation within the tent. The Airedale is a modern family tent, which is very easy to pitch, offers great waterproofing technologies (4000mm) and a durable 100 denier polyester flysheet. The front awning can be fully enclosed, in the event of poor weather, and offers a great area to store wet clothes, boots or equipment. Furthermore, it can offer an ideal place to cook if the weather is poor, leaving the front door open for the condensation from cooking to escape. The mid living space has a fully enclosed, sewn-in groundsheet, and offers the perfect family living space, which is free of bugs, and draughts.

Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.
|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.

180 HDE Polyester Fabric, 4000mm (Around 100 Denier)

Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.
