Great new Outwell Superior Air tents bring even more innovation to family camping
The Jacksonville 5SA and Grandville 8SA embrace the Scandinavian brand’s record of innovation, top design and superb quality with the introduction of new features, better ventilation and a floorplan that improve the outdoor experience. They build on the success of the Airville 6SA that was awarded Tent of the Year in the Camping Magazine Editor’s Choice Awards 2020.
The new tents include the new Quick & Quiet Access. This applies the award-winning Quick & Quiet magnetic inner door design to the dividing wall separating the living and outer areas in three-zone tents for silent fuss-free access.
Superior tents use the superlative Outtex® 6000 Pro fabric and Outwell Power Air System to ensure performance and easy pitching. Pitching is further simplified with the addition of the Outwell Floating Guyline and Easy Pegging Systems, with stability in high winds enhanced by web storm straps. All ensure a correctly pitched Superior Air tent can withstand a Force 10 storm.
Safety is a priority and luminous guys can be easily seen in poor conditions and at night to help prevent accidental tripping. And hazards are further reduced by the Easy Access System that drops the groundsheet to the ground at the D-shape doors that can be safely tucked and folded to one side with the corresponding anti-bug mesh panels when not in use.
Enhanced ventilation is provided by the Rear Ventilation System and cowl-protected side mesh ventilation panels. These are positioned at the bottom of the windows to improve views out of the tinted windows that protect from the sun’s UV light and glare as well as offering a high degree of privacy enhanced by zip-up curtains. Other features include the Outwell HookTrack System that allows lights and small items to be positioned where required.
Superior Air tents feature Ambassador Master Bedrooms, darkened to reduce light for a good night’s sleep, including dark curtains over the mesh vents for 2021. Light is further reduced by dark outer panels over the bedroom area. Quick & Quiet inner doors allow you to quietly slip through and automatically close behind you thanks to sewn-in magnetic strips. The 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, tablets and more.
Additions include the Jacksonville 5SA. The three-zone tunnel provides versatile accommodation for up to five, with a bedroom three/two configuration. Like all Superior tents, the numerous options that open the tent to bring the outside in during fine weather, the large windows and refined ventilation, perfectly address all weather conditions. A Rain Safe side door offers alternative access when the weather turns for the worse.
The Grandville is the largest tent in the Collection and provides eight-person accommodation in a vis-à-vis format, with the two inner tent pods each split into two two-person bedrooms. Main access comprises a large front door panel that incorporates large, tinted windows backed by curtains. This leads to a huge ‘wet’ zone with detachable groundsheet – perfect for food preparation or sheltered living with the door open, or a handy place to store outdoor equipment or muddy clothes before entering the living area.
The living area is accessed through a Quick & Quiet Access wall that also features large mesh panels to enhance ventilation. The rear of the living area expands out in a Wing Lounge to provide even more space that’s perfect for a sofa. The ability to fully open its rear panel for maximum exposure to the sun brings the outside in or provides a handy rear door.
Optional extras include a Universal Extension to provide the Jacksonville with protected outdoor living. Footprints and carpets provide extra protection, comfort and easy maintenance.
Superior Air features include:
Outwell Power Air System – This simple to understand system features individual air tubes inflated separately for easy pitching.
Aerodynamic Storm Protection – The aerodynamic shape of the tent ensures a stable pitch. Wind tested against the Beaufort Scale to storm Force 10.
Outwell Easy Access System with Mesh – Main doors and corresponding mesh panels fold to one side and the groundsheet lies flush to the ground for safe, easy access.
Outwell Easy Pegging System – This is the proven way to ensure the right pegs are used for the right job. Simple, but highly effective, three types of pegs are used to anchor specific areas of the tent.
Outwell Floating Guyline System – Designed for optimum support from one peg for easy pitching, the lower half are highly visible to help prevent tripping while the darker upper half provides the illusion of the luminous section floating above the ground.
Rear Ventilation System – The latest sleek profile rear ventilation system for enhanced airflow and easy adjustment.
Tinted Windows – Special coating protects against the sun’s glare and provides privacy while maintaining great views out.
Outwell Sewn-in Ground System – The full groundsheet is sealed to the outer to keep out water, draughts and insects.
Outwell HookTrack System − Our all-new Outwell HookTrack System is a smart, yet simple innovation designed to deliver safety and convenience that is reliable in function and easy to use. It allows lights to be positioned where needed, routing wires securely out of the way to avoid accidental damage and trip hazards. Plus, our optional Tent Hanging System lines and clips provide a means to suspend lighter items, like cloths, for additional versatility.
Outwell Sleep Comfort Rating – To aid market comparison we quote the number of people that an Outwell bedroom can sleep as stated by the industry standard. However, we also quote our own Sleep Comfort rating to recommend the number of campers that it can sleep comfortably.
Outwell Ambassador Bedroom – Campers have long complained that the minimum tent bedroom size of 200cm long x 60cm wide as laid down by the official standard DIN 112-02-01 AA was just too small. While Outwell complied with the standard to assist campers compare products, the brand also acknowledged that more space in the bedroom was needed and for years has suggested, through its Outwell Sleep Comfort icon, a realistic number of campers an inner could accommodate based on 70cm-80cm per person. As part of ongoing evolution, we introduce the Ambassador bedroom with a leading 230cm depth and dark finish reduces light entering the bedroom to ensure a good night’s sleep while cable entry brings power to the bedside. Incorporates the new Quick & Quiet doors.
Quick & Quiet inner doors − Magnetic strips sewn into the leading edge of the inner doors and the inner’s central dividing strip allow quick and quiet bedroom entry and exit with the option of zips for a more secure closure when required.
