Updated for 2018, the Outwell Hornet 6SA (formerly the Hornet XL) has been updated and improved for the coming season. Now featuring the pre-angled, gothic arch beams for added stability, and the rainsafe door on the left hand side of the tent for when the weather turns poor.

The Outwell Hornet 6SA is the polyester version of the Harrier 6SA (formerly Harrier XL) tent, designed to sleep up to six people comfortably within it's tunnel system. The tent features the Smart Air Go Inflation system, which means the tent can be pitched as one, from one inflation point, very quickly as the beams are all interlinked. Additionally, the tent has four rooms, 1 living area and 3 sleeping compartments, and a built in porch, making it perfect for the growing family requiring plenty of living space.
