Outdoor Revolution Airedale 8.0 Tent (2019)
New for 2019, the Outdoor Revolution Airedale 8.0 Tent is the largest tunnel tent in the Revolution collection, with huge living areas, and great technical features, such as the 4000mm waterproofing, the 180HDE, 100 Denier polyester fabric and the LifeTime guaranteed AirFrame system. The tent can sleep up to eight people, but is most likely ideal for around six to be comfortable, offering a three-zone tent, with plenty of flexibility to the camper's needs. Easy to erect, simply peg down the four corners, and inflate all the beams, to have a huge tent, pitched within ten - fifteen minutes. The bedrooms have zipped dividers for added privacy, and a depth of 240cm, which is ideal for camp beds or extra large airbeds and mats. Furthermore, one of the inner tents can be removed, via a zip-off system, to create more living and storage space.

|Berth||8 Man |
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)||4000 |
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.

Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.
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.
