By popular demand, Outwell, the family camping specialist, has introduced a new range of technical cotton family pole tents. Read on to find out more.
The Regent Collection offers three sizes of three-zone Yosemite Lake tents that provide superlative living space to create a country home where you can enjoy your holiday in comfort, safety and style.
Sleeping four, five (pictured left) and six (pictured below right), the Yosemite Lake tents use the superlative Outtex Airtech fabric that maintains a tent’s microclimate no matter the weather. Cool in summer and warm in winter, the fabric’s breathable nature helps eliminate condensation while providing a high degree of water resistance thanks to cotton’s ability to swell when wet to prevent water entry – all characteristics appreciated by discerning campers.
Steel poles are used for strength and durability. Pitching is simplified by the addition of the Outwell Floating Guyline and Easy Pegging Systems, with stability in high winds enhanced by the revolutionary Outwell Wind Stabilizer System. All ensure a correctly pitched Regent tent can withstand a Force 10 storm. Luminous guys can be easily seen in poor conditions and at night to help prevent accidental tripping.
The front ‘wet’ zone is accessed by the full front opening and acts as a buffer between the enclosed living area and the outdoors. It proves the perfect place for food preparation and a place to relax and enjoy the close to nature experience while sheltered from the weather.
The living area is accessed by external side doors backed by anti-bug mesh panels, and the dividing Quick & Quiet Access door that also includes large mesh windows (pictured left). Quick & Quiet Inners also make use of magnetic closure for convenient access without the noise of zips disturbing the peace.
The mesh door panels and large internal door windows aid the superb ventilation that is provided by the huge Rear Ventilation System and cowl-protected side mesh vents. The side vents are positioned to sit at the bottom of the windows to improve views out and air flow.
All windows throughout are tinted against the sun’s glare and nosey neighbours − zip-up curtains provide the ability to fine-tune light and privacy. The HookTrack System provides versatile suspension points for lights and small items.
Regent tents feature Ambassador Master Bedrooms, darkened to reduce light for a good night’s sleep. Light is further reduced by curtains over the mesh ventilation panels and the change from a light-coloured outer roof panel over the living area to a dark fabric where it sits over the bedroom.
Ambassador bedrooms provide a luxurious amount of space and headroom, allowing easier movement and the opportunity to use furniture such as bedside tables. The provision of a bedroom cable port means the electric hook-up can be used to power home comforts like lights.
Model-dependent optional extras include a Universal Extension to extend living options. Footprint and flat woven carpet provide extra protection, comfort and easy maintenance.
