A new tent to the collection, the Outdoor Revolution o-Zone 6.0XTR Safari Tent (2020) is the ultimate polyester family tent, with an abundance of living space, standing height and technical features, designed to maximise the comfort of any camping experience. The inflatable design of the tent makes pitching the tent a simplistic affair, and the solid air tubes provide a robust, solid tent structure, and are covered under warranty for lifetime of the product. Furthermore, the tent boasts impressive features, offering a 240cm depth bedroom, which will fit larger camp beds, double height airbeds, and allow plenty of space within the sleeping section, which also has a darkened material for a better night's sleep. The three-zone design of the tent, is a sought after element of this tent, offering a pre-attached porch area for storage, socialising and cooking if the weather is awry, as the front door can be completely removed for added ventilation. The living space offers a fully sewn-in groundsheet, which protects the tent from draughts, bugs and the elements, for a cosy, home-like feel to the tent interior.

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.

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.
