The new Outwell Birdland S Tent is based on last season's Birdland 3. It has been further improved this season with the addition of a wider front doorway and an overhead Durawrap fibreglass 'Rain-Safe' pole that protects the front doorway from rain and makes the tent even more pleasing to the eye.
The Outwell Birdland 3 Tent had rightly established a reputation as a compact weekend tent that knocked spots off most 3-berth weekenders for both style and quality - the Outwell Birdland S will only further that reputation. It can be characterised as a comfortable 'couples tent' who want something quick and easy to erect but also want their creature comforts - like being able to stand up in it when erected - and have a useful amount of living space.
The Birdland S has a 3-person inner tent with an 'O' shaped stow-away door and a deceptively large living area that measures 1.9m x 2.5m - giving plenty of space for table, chairs and perhaps a storage unit too. Out front there's a large panel front door that can be rolled to one side to create a permanent opening. One either side of the living space are two large windows to allow in plenty of light and each featuring adjustable toggle-up curtains so you can control the light and level of privacy required.
The other extraordinary feature for such a small tent is the 2.0m headroom in the living area (1.8m in the bedroom) that negates any uncomfortable bending or crawling. The Outwell Birdland S also retains all of the upgrades the Birdland range received last season including the two-tone Green colourway, wave-shaped inner attachment points, easy pegging system and wind stabiliser system.
