Here is a collection of true family-size, up-market, inflatable tunnel tents that erect in seconds thanks to superlative Outwell innovative technology. Smart Air heralds a new era for inflatable tents where you just plug the supplied pump into a single air input valve and fully pitch a Smart Air tent with little effort.

Outwell One-go Inflation Technology comprises a unique frame that interlinks each upright tube via an apex tube that also enhances rigidity. Outwell Smart Air Tent
Isolation valves ensure the frame does not fully deflate in the unlikely event of damage and facilitates repair. Ready to pack away? While only one input valve is needed to inflate the tent, each tube assembly has an outlet valve to ensure quick and easy deflation.

This quality Collection comprises the Concorde range of tents, awnings and extensions made in Outwell’s market-leading Technical Cotton – Outtex Airtech polycotton in Oil Green.

Packed full of outstanding features yet more examples of Outwell innovation include: simple pitching with the Outwell Easy Pegging System; large tinted windows, Outwell Sealed Ground System that attaches groundsheet to tent; the much copied Rain-safe door; and the Outwell Wave-shaped Hanging Point System for stress-free inner tent seams.

All Concorde tents utilise Outwell Universal Inners for versatile use of space, with the Concorde M sleeping five in a 3+2 configuration and the Concorde L six in a 3+3 layout. The huge Concorde XL sleeps up to ten in two pairs of 3+2 bedrooms that sit opposite each other across the large living room vis-à-vis style for privacy.

The popular optional front awning and extension options are available for M and L models while campers using an XL can obtain a side awning and side extension to further increase living space. Other ‘must-have’ options include carpets and footprints.

RRP Concorde M £1,199.99, Concorde L £1,499.99, Concorde XL £1,799.99


Smart Air tent features include:

Outwell One-go Inflation Technology New for 2013, the development of our stunning Outwell One-go Inflation Technology allows the camper to plug the supplied pump into a single air inlet valve to inflate the largest of tents in next to no time. No moving the pump between individual air tubes – just plug in, pump up and go! A manometer on the high-volume double-action pump ensures the correct pressure. The simple-to-pitch and highly effective frame links uprights via an apex tube that also acts as a ridge pole for increased rigidity. In the unlikely event of damage, each individual upright assembly can be isolated using valves to prevent the frame from fully deflating and to facilitate easy repair. A number of air outlet valves are supplied to rapidly deflate the tent for packing.

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 Two dark lines lead to a single luminous guy that pegs out. The System is easier to pitch and minimises the amount of lines to trip over. Plus, the optical illusion created by the colours adds to the tent’s streamlined look, with the luminous guy appearing to float above the ground.

Tinted Windows These provide protection from the sun and add to privacy while maintaining views out.

Outwell Wave-shaped Hanging Point System This good-looking design spreads the strain created when the inner is suspended from the outer tent, along the whole seam rather than having any stress concentrated in a single area where it can cause damage.

Universal Inner tent This allows zipped access between two bedrooms, or can be used to create one big bedroom, or used to take down and roll away one side to increase living space.
