Outwell took a little longer than most tent manufacturers to start releasing their inflatable tents, but we think that it has been worth the wait and today we will be reviewing one of 21+ inflatable tents/variations of tents now offered by Outwell. Some of their inflatable tents are combined structures mixing inflatable beams with steel or fibreglass poles.
This is a fantastic family tent offering sleeping space for up to 7 people in 3 bedrooms. Consisting of three separately defined living areas, all very spacious and the option of a third bedroom or large storage area in the main living area, this tent provides several layout options that will suit anyone’s needs.
A fully sewn-in groundsheet and bug mesh options on all doors allow you to keep the bugs out while allowing lots of air and ventilation around the tent.
Cable access points allow that little bit of added luxury with ease and there is also an internal cable entry point in bedroom pods.
Panoramic windows give you great all-round views while sitting relaxing inside your tent. Great if you have a pitch with a stunning view or when you just want to keep an eye on the kids. All windows have privacy blinds for cosy evenings and sleepy mornings and can be toggled in place whenever you need them.
Bedrooms are spacious and flexible the 2 rear pods can be made into one large bedroom if required and optional 3rd bedroom at the front of the tent can be removed for extra space or used for storage to help keep your tent looking tidy. This would be a great area for storing wet gear when away or even putting in a hanging rail for clothes storage on longer trips. If you do plan to use the front of this tent for cooking the extra room would also make an ideal pantry.
The front of the tent opens right up for access and you have the option of having the full flysheet or bug mesh doors when you wish to keep this closed and use the optional side door. Due to this being able to become an open space it could be carefully used for cooking in wet weather, giving you shelter from the elements while providing plenty of ventilation if you are using a gas cooker.
This area of the tent does not have a sewn-in groundsheet like the rest of the tent so again this would be ideal for wet gear storage.
There are many layout options with this tent so it would suit almost any buyer. Whether you are a family looking for something spacious or a couple looking to go away for extended periods and have a luxurious space to spend your time I’m sure this would be a good tent in which to holiday and make memories.
Structure: This tents structure consists of 5 pre-angled inflatable beams giving good height at the sides and added rigidity. Outwell uses a 2-way valve system for easy inflation or deflation of beams.
Guy Lines: Pre-attached guy lines on all sides for added rigidity. Guy line points are reinforced to help in high winds.
Fabrics: The fabric used on the Outtex 4000 polyester material with a HH of 4000. The groundsheet is made from a double-coated polyethylene material and is 100% waterproof
Cable Entry: The tent has an EHU cable entry point on flysheet as well as in inners to allow you to take electrics into the sleeping area. There are also cable tidy toggles to help keep everything neat and safe.
Windows: The Greenburgh has large panoramic windows on 3 sides to let in plenty of light and each comes with their own privacy curtain that can be togged in place for privacy when needed.
Windows do have a slight tint on them to help reduce glare.
Doors: There are 2 entry points to this tent. One large front entrance and a side door on one side of the tent.
Ventilation: Lots of ventilation throughout this tent including a large guyed out ventilation panel to the rear of the bedrooms and also some ventilation panels below the windows.
Bedrooms: There are 2 large bedrooms to the rear of this tent and an optional 3rd bedroom that can be toggled in place in the front area. Bedrooms use a slightly darker material to help reduce the amount of light on first sunlight. The bedrooms also have great storage pockets on each side.
Living Area: The living space in this tent is generous. Having pre-angled beams helps give this tent an even larger feel as very little space is wasted as the sides of the tent slope less allowing greater storage and layout options.
Optional Extras: The Outwell Greenburgh 7A has optional extras such as carpet and footprint and it is worth noting that many retailers may offer package deals that will include these. Buying a package deal often saves you money when all are bought together.

This is a fantastic family tent and I love the optional 3rd bedroom, this would also make a great bathroom/toilet area if a smaller family were using this tent. As well as the ideas that have been given above for other optional uses, I’m sure you will have your own thoughts too.
Again, the panoramic windows are great, I really love a tent that you can relax in without missing out on the views.
The darkened material in rooms help a little but don’t keep out that much more light. So, if like me you are a light sleeper, and this bothers you may still need an eye mask for that little bit of extra time in bed in the mornings.
A great tent for any family with plenty of space.
