A single room tent with a massive enclosed porch, the Aria 1 from Outdoor Connection features Aria Air Pole technology to create simplicity in setup and a small pack size for ease of transport.
Thermoplastic polyurethane bladders in the poles are protected by a bonded polyester fabric making them incredibly durable, while 100 Denier HiCount fabric on the flysheet comes with UV-Protek treatment to reduce the impact of UV light and extend the life of your tent.
Externally all doors and windows can be extended as awnings while on the inside both doors feature mesh and nylon panels, privacy screens are incorporated into the windows and low adjustable Ventraflow panels provide superior ventilation.
Finished off with a removable internal divider, electrical inlet, four organiser pockets and complete with four awning poles, a variety of pegs and a combination lock for your tent door, the Outdoor Connection Aria 1 is a fully equipped tent for family camping.
Would this be easier/quicker than the Coleman Northstar?
Even though the Aria 1 is an air pole tent, it will still set you back a good 20 minutes because of the size, and you will still have to put the ridgepoles in place. Whereas with the Northstar, it has an all-in-one frame, so it will take you more like 10-15 minutes depending on your experience and whether you’ve got someone to help.
If you take a look at the second video linked on the product description page above, you can get a really good idea of how to set up and pack down the Aria 1 from Outdoor Connection.
There’s also a video on setting up and packing down the Coleman Instant Northstar here – so it might be useful to watch them both to see which one would be best suited to you.
Where do I find the entry hole for the power cord?
I've just got off the phone with Outdoor Connection, and they've said that when you're inside the tent there should be a small zip on one side at floor level for your power cords.
How effective is the rear room divider? How does it work? Does it zip to the inner tent all the way round? Does it leave a gap at the bottom like some other tents? Does it provide privacy at all? Can you use the side doors of the Aria 1 as awnings provided you have poles (like the Bedarra) or do they only roll up? Thanks in advance for your help. Outdoor Connection hasn't got back to me regarding this :)
We currently don't have an Aria 1 on display so I can't check the rear room divider for you in store, and it's not clear on Outdoor Connection's website or in their catalogue.
I've just given Outdoor Connection a call, and they are going to get back to me regarding your queries about the Aria 1 - so I should have an an answer for you today or at the latest tomorrow.
I've just got word from Outdoor Connection about your queries about the Aria 1, and they've told me that the divider hangs along loops and toggles, and it comes down to the floor but it doesn’t attach to the ground - so it's similar to a curtain.
And as far as I understand it, in the front porch area you can use the front and side doors as awnings.
