The Outwell Trout Lake 4 is the smallest in the Outwell Classic Range of polycotton tents and yet is still a comfortable, classic 4-berth tent featuring a 2+2 partitioned inner cabin, a front door and two side doors (both of which double as no-see um mesh screen doors) and two triangular front windows/vents. The Trout Lake 4 also features an improved side porch area featuring a rain-safe pole that creates a canopy over the doorway. The Trout Lake 4 features an *Airtech polycotton (65% cotton, 35% polyester) flysheet which provides a cooler internal climate and is inherently more breathable than polyester. While it is also heavier than polyester, the increased weight of these tents has been offset by the use of aluminium alloy poles throughout rather than steel. Another major feature is the zipped in PVC tarpaulin groundsheets that provide a totally enclosed environment when in use but can be completely removed and cleaned/aired when not.
Other features of this tent include: two steel porch poles; carrier bags for poles and canvas; Outwell doormat; internal organiser; D-shaped inner doors; adjustable reinforced pegging point; pre-attached luminous guys; full length mesh pockets in inner tents; Outwell Dry Zip System; Guyline retainer system; lamp holder with cable tidies.
*Outwell's Airtech Polycotton fabric has a water repellent coating on the outside which allows water droplets to form and run off the tent (bet on the outcome). Then, as the rain gets heavier the fabric closes up and seals itself to become totally waterproof. Airtech also has a strong resistance to UV decay and, if carefully looked after, will last for many years.
