The Outwell Reddick 5A air tent offers a great tent to replace the old Nevada collection, with a 70 Denier polyester fabric, with a 4000mm Outtex polyester flysheet. The Reddick 5A is ideal for the family or small group wanting space to sleep up to five people, but most suitable for four people. Furthermore, the Air design allows the tent to be pitched much quicker than the traditional pole design of tent, allowing maximum time for leisure activities, and taking the stress out of the camping set up. The Reddick also features a sewn-in groundsheet to reduce draughts and give a bug-free experience, whilst the rainsafe side door also adds a great entry / exit point to the tent, without the weather affecting the living space.

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 4000mm, 70 Denier Polyester
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.
Denier - a measurement used to determine the thickness of the tent flysheet. It relates to the fibre thickness, or thread counts used. The thicker the fabric, generally the stronger, and more durable the fabric will be. The denier really reflects the lifetime to be expected of the tent, and how quickly, it will be affected by UV Degradation.
