Outwell Montana 6SATC Air Tent 2016

 


Experienced campers know that a quality tent comes with a premium price tag. After all, they are investing in a brand’s research and development, the quality materials used and the special outdoor experience they will enjoy from using such equipment.

And discerning campers know that the superlative Outwell® Smart Air TC Collection is the ultimate in stylish inflatable, family tents – and appreciate that the Scandinavian brand has now introduced its award-winning Montana tent to head the stunning portfolio.

The Outwell Montana 6 is widely recognised as the iconic family tent and the new Montana 6SATC (pictured above) combines the popular design with its exclusive Outtex® Airtech fabric. This dense-weave polycotton (SATC – Smart Air Technical Cotton) delivers premium performance and a self-regulating interior climate that minimises condensation while keeping the inside cool in summer and warm as the outside temperature falls.

Pitching is simplified by the use of the Outwell Advanced Air Tube System. This new air tube category features the time-proven One-go Inflation Technology that allows the camper to plug the supplied high capacity manual pump, or optional electric pump, into a single inlet valve and inflate the largest of tents in next to no time – no moving the pump between individual air tubes. A manometer on the high-volume double-action pump ensures the correct pressure.

The simple-to-erect and highly effective frame links pre-angled uprights via an apex tube that also acts as a ridge pole for increased rigidity. In the unlikely event of damage, each individual upright assembly can be isolated using valves (pictured above) to prevent the frame from fully deflating and to facilitate easy repair. All the air outlet valves can be opened to rapidly deflate the tent for packing.


The pre-angled uprights create extra head height and enhance wind-shedding performance – all correctly pitched Smart Air TC tents will withstand Force Ten gales. Outwell has also included its Floating Guyline and Easy Pegging Systems (pictured left) to further ease pitching and raise the stability and safety levels.
A canopy has been added to the front of the tent to provide sun protection but this can be either rolled back or zipped off to meet weather and pitch demands.
If the weather turns the Rain Safe porch with detachable groundsheet provides a wet area in which to shed wet, muddy clothes before entering the tent. Water and bugs are also kept out of the tent by the Outwell Sealed Ground System (pictured right) that sees the groundsheet permanently attached to the outer. Fully zipped-in mesh door panels work with the mesh vents to allow insect-proof ventilation.
Once inside campers appreciate the large living area and unique atmosphere provided by the Airtech polycotton. Large tinted windows with zip-up curtains offer UV-protection and provide great views out while maintaining privacy. The Universal Inner offers versatile bedroom space that has a Night Sky ceiling to reduce light and help promote sleep.
Comfort and protection are key considerations and the range of popular options includes a choice of carpets, a footprint and Front Awning.

Outwell original features appearing in its Smart Air TC Collection include:
Outtex Airtech – Our exclusive tight-weave Technical Cotton fabric blends 65 per cent cotton with 35 per cent polyester to deliver premium performance and a self-regulating interior climate.
Outwell Advanced Air Tube System – This new air tube category features our time-proven One-go Inflation Technology that allows the camper to plug the supplied high capacity manual pump into a single inlet valve and inflate the largest of tents in next to no time – no moving the pump between individual air tubes. A manometer on the high-volume double-action pump ensures the correct pressure. The simple-to-erect and highly effective frame links pre-angled uprights via an apex tube that also acts as a ridge pole for increased rigidity. In the unlikely event of damage, each individual upright assembly can be isolated using valves to prevent the frame from fully deflating and to facilitate easy repair. All the air outlet valves can be opened to rapidly deflate the tent for packing. The pre-angled uprights create extra head height and enhance wind performance.
Outwell Aerodynamic Storm Protection – In-house testing shows a correctly pitched Smart Air TC can withstand a minimum of a Force Ten gale.
Outwell Easy Pegging System – This is the proven way to ensure the right pegs are used for the right job. Simple, but highly effective, three types of pegs are used to anchor specific areas of the tent.
Outwell Floating Guyline System – Two dark lines lead to a single luminous guy that pegs out. The System is easier to pitch and minimises the amount of lines to trip over. Plus, the optical illusion created by the colours adds to the tent’s streamlined look, with the luminous guy appearing to float above the ground.
Outwell Sealed Ground System – The inclusion of the groundsheet as an integral part of the tent structure is the best way to keep draughts, water, insects and dirt out of a tent. It provides all-weather protection from the tent upwards.
Tinted Windows – These provide protection from the sun and add to privacy while maintaining views out.
Zip-up Curtains – These allow the exact mix of privacy, view and light entry.
Outwell Wave-shaped Hanging Point System – This good-looking design spreads the strain created when the inner is suspended from the outer tent, along the whole seam rather than having any stress concentrated in a single area where it can cause damage.
Universal Inner tent – This allows zipped access between two bedrooms, or can be used to create one big bedroom, or used to take down and roll away one side to increase living space.
Night Sky Ceiling – This is used in inner tents to enhance sleep by reducing light levels. Perfect if you want to snatch a nap during the day, get an early night, enjoy a lie-in, or ensure early-rising children wake a little later than normal.
Sleep Comfort – We recognise that the industry standard stating 60cm width per person for sleeping compartments is often not enough and, while we comply with this to aid comparison, our own Outwell Sleep Comfort icon allows 70-80cm and suggests the number of people – adults and children – that can lie comfortably for a great night’s sleep.
