Outwell Bear Lake 6

The Outwell Bear Lake 6 is not cheap, but, not only is it a huge tent, it is constructed of materials that not only provide the best protection and comfort in good and bad weather, but are designed to last. One great feature is the polycotton fly sheet which has greater breath ability than previous materials used on this design, and although this makes the tent a bit heavier, it's probably a necessary compromise. When the rains don't let up, you'll be glad of that extra weight of the fly sheet, as while tents around you get wetter as the rains get heavier, the Airtech system actually tightens up the fabric to ensure a completely waterproof seal.

The groundsheet is zipped in which give great protection against the elements and creepy crawlies whilst being easily removed for cleaning, and with a tent that has a life expectancy as long as this one this is a feature not to be overlooked. Despite its size and the heavier fly sheet, the whole thing is not much over 50 kilos, as 19mm aluminium alloy poles are used in place of steel ones.

Headroom is great throughout the tent, and combined with the very generous living space any time spent in doors will be a pleasure in this luxury tent. As with all the Outwell tents in this range attention has been paid to durability and safety with non-fancy, but very handy touches such as the Drip Dry System, adjustable reinforced pegging points, pre-attached luminous guys and more. Although not exactly cheap, in this case you are getting what you pay for, and at the current reduced price it's a great bargain and investment for years of family camping fun.
