The Outwell Mayville 5SA Tent sleeps up to five people, in a three-room design tent. Part of the Smart Air Collection of tents from Outwell, the most premium tents in the range, the Mayville is a top specification tent, with a full 150-denier polyester fabric. Furthermore, the Smart Air technology offers a brilliant pitching concept, with the tent inflating from one inflation point, for a quicker and simpler inflation system. The tent can also be inflated from any beam, allowing several people to inflate the tent at the same time for an even quicker pitching experience. The Mayville 5SA offers full standing height, a sewn-in groundsheet in the living space and Ambassador 230cm depth bedrooms. The inners are perfect for longer airbeds and camp beds, which may not fit into a regular sized inner tent.

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.

Outtex 6000 Pro Polyester, 150-Denier
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.
