The Outwell Glendale 5 is repeated in 2012 after an exciting debut last season. At first glance this tent it may look somewhat similar to a lot of other tunnel tents but in actuality it is so much longer and wider that its proportions are closer to that of huge tents in the Vermont Range. The Glendale 5 is essentially a three room tunnel tent with a 2+3 berth sleeping compartment, a living space measuring a very generous 3.5x2.8m and then through a dividing doorway is a fully enclosed porch area which itself offers plenty of space to relax or dine. There's a large sun canopy style front doorway and also a side doorway giving flexible entrance options (particularly useful in poor weather). Another feature is the large multiple windows which allow in a massive amount of light and feature adjustable toggle-up curtains (ideal for strippers) to adjust the light/privacy levels. The living space features a fully sewn-in double coated polyethylene groundsheet to ensure all of the elements are kept at bay whilst the porch area features a detachable bathtub groundsheet for easy cleaning.
The tent is designed to sleep 5 people maximum but the bedroom features a 2+3 universal inner tent, one half of which can be detached and folded away if not being used. Other key features include mesh vents above the main windows, convenient organiser pockets, cable entry point, lamp holder and cable tidies. The technical features include 19/22mm steel upright poles plus 12.7mm Duratec fibreglass roof poles; flysheet first or all as one pitching; an Outtex 4000 flysheet (a fire retardant polyester based material of 4000mm hydrostatic head) double stitched with taped seams; nylon carry bag; adjustable pegging points; Outwell doormat; pre-attached luminous guy lines; Outwell heavy duty zips; guy line retainers.
