New for 2019, the Outwell Stone Lake 5ATC sleeps five in a three-room design, offering front door and side door entry, complete with secondary mesh panels for warmer weather conditions.

The Outwell Stone Lake 5ATC offers a versatile five-berth tent ideal for family campers, needing a tent to be used throughout the camping season, whether it be early Easter or Late Autumn. The polycotton fabric allows the tent to be dynamic and stays cooler in warmer conditions, and warmer in colder conditions. Cotton as a fabric is far more breathable than polyester, which will reduce condensation and offer a naturally waterproof design.

Furthermore, the Stone Lake is a four room tunnel tent, with an inflatable design for easier pitching, full standing height and ample living quarters.
