The flagship tent of the Outwell 2016 collection, the Outwell Montana 6SATC (SmartAir Polycotton) tent is a luxurious, three room tunnel tent, designed to offer the ultimate in camping comfort, style and convenience. The Montana 6SATC is manufactured using a polycotton weave (65% Cotton / 35 Polyester), making the tent more durable and versatile to different weather conditions. The cotton aspect of the tent maintains a cooler atmosphere inside the tent on the warmer days, whilst also being more naturally waterproof, when compared to a standard polyester tent. Additionally, the Montana 6SATC has a fully sewn-in groundsheet, ample living space, and a large front zip-off canopy, which offers additional living space. The SmartAir system, allows the tent to be inflated as one unit, from one inflation point, ensuring it is quick and easy to pitch, allowing you to maximise your leisure time.

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 Airtech Polycotton fabric
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.
