The Outwell Belleville 7SA Tent is new for 2019, replacing the old, popular Vermont 7SA tent, but offering a new inflatable Smart Air system for easier pitching. The Belleville can now be inflated from any beam, allowing several people to inflate the tent at the same time, making pitching the tent even quicker! Furthermore, the Belleville offers superb living accommodation, with unrivalled living space, storage space and sleeping space. The three-zone design of the tent offers great flexibility to the camper, as the enclosed front awning offers a great area to relax in, to cook in, or to store wet clothes and muddy boots after a long day. The living space has a fully enclosed sewn-in groundsheet, making it comfortable, and draught-free, and reducing the amount of bugs that can gain access to the tent. Perfect for larger families needing lots of usable living space, but a quick, simple pitching system.

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.

|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.
