The Outwell Cougar Lake is the lastest addition to the Classic Range of tent - a range the word 'glamping' could have been invented for. The Cougar Lake is almost as wide as it is long and so this nearly square tent makes for an innovative layout inside. The bedrooms are positioned either side of the rear of the tent with a privacy chamber/walk-in wadrobe area situated between them. The huge living room plus panorama room (3.5x6.3m in total) will provide plenty of space for tables, chairs, storage units and all manner of home-from-home comforts and Outwell has even left enough room for two drying rails. The front end of the tent is given over to a huge panoramic frontage with top to bottom windows and large panel doors which can be unzipped to open up the entire front end of the tent. There is a scond doorway at the rear of the tent through the walk-in wardrobe area.
As part of the Outwell Classic tent range, the Cougar Lake features an Outtex Airtech* (65% cotton; 35% polyester) flysheet that provides a cooler internal climate and is inherently more breathable than polyester. While it is also significantly heavier than polyester, the increased weight of these tents has been offset by the use of 25mm aluminium alloy poles throughout rather than heavier steel as found in most other tunnel tents of this size. Another major feature is the 2 zipped in PVC tarpaulin groundsheets (10,000mm HH) - one for the living area and one for the panoramic room - that provide a totally enclosed environment when in use but can be completely removed and cleaned/aired when not.
The Outwell Cougar Lake also features large windows in the living area, window vents and covers, flysheet first or as-one pitching, two steel porch poles, zip-in PVC groundsheet, carry bags for poles and canvas, organiser pockets, adjustable reinforced pegging point, pre-attached luminous guys, mesh pockets in inner tents, heavy duty Outwell zips, drying rails, clothes/drying rails, cable tidies and lamp holder, low lights, Guyline retainer system, Outwell doormat.
*Outtex Airtech is a Polycotton fabric with a water repellent coating on the outside which allows water droplets to form and run off the tent then, as the rain gets heavier the fabric closes up and seals itself to become totally waterproof. Outtex Airtech also has a strong resistance to UV decay and, if carefully looked after, will last for many years.
