Outwell Montana 6P Tent
The Outwell Montana 6p tent is a large family tent, suitable for sleeping up to six people in a comfortable and spacious environment. Additionally, the Montana 6p features the reliable steel frame for camping in more adverse conditions, as it can hold its own if the wind picks up or if you are camping in an exposed area such as the coastal areas.
The Outwell Montana 6P returns for 2018, an award winning tent that has earned the status of the best selling family tent for over a decade now. The Montana 6p has a large, spacious living space and a six person inner tent, which can be split into two compartments. Additionally, there are three doors into the tent - the front door and the side doors with the rainsafe cover, which is perfect for when the weather turns awry, as you can get in and out of the tent without rainwater getting into the living space. The Montana 6p is a panoramic tent, meaning it has huge windows, which let lots of light into the tent, and have toggle up curtains for added privacy during the evening.

|Berth||6 Man |
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)||6000 |
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.
|Flysheet Fabric||Outtex 6000 with taped seams |
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.
