Outwell Tents - First in the Field

First in the Field

Outwell never stop striving to improve. Who else but Outwell could have come up with the super-cool Kids Room inner tents or the Wind Stabilizer System? That’s Outwell. Often copied, never bettered!

Tinted windows - 2012

An all-new innovation for this season, our tinted windows provide protection from the sun and add to a camper’s privacy while maintaining views out.

Floating Guyline System - 2012

The Floating Guyline System has two Mocca lines leading to a single luminous line that pegs out. The System is easier to pitch and minimises the amount of lines to trip over. Plus, the eye-catching optical illusion created by the colours adds to the tent’s streamlined look, with the luminous guy appearing to float above the ground.

Outwell Wind Stabilizer System - 2011

The highly effective Outwell Wind Stabilizer System directly attaches outer, pole and guy line to create superb strength and stability in gale force winds. That’s real peace of mind for you and all the family.

Outwell Easy Pegging System - 2011

Special use of three different colour-coded types of pegs ensures pitching is both straightforward and contributes to the inherent stability of any Outwell tent. Here, we use grey anchor steel pegs at each corner, black plastic pegs for general pegging out, and luminous pegs to complement the guylines. Simple, but so highly effective.

Luminous Guylines/Piping/Dry Zip System - 2011

Not content with leading the way with luminous guylines over a decade ago, we added complementary luminous piping on the main tent panels. Plus, our Dry Zip System provides special luminous coverings that prevent water getting in anywhere along important zipping points.

Kids Room/Game Wall/Game Set - 2010

Introduced with the Fantasy Collection of tents, these features are all about fun for everyone, and a key innovation to prove how Outwell puts families first. This was recognised by the readers of Camping, the UK’s leading magazine for life under canvas, when the Fantasy Collection was awarded the prestigious title, Tent of the Year 2010.

Extensions and Awnings - 2008/2009

Outwell came up with the extension concept in 2008, followed a year later by a complete range of awnings. Simply, each allows you to add a further dimension to your Outwell tent when it’s needed – whether you want to add an extension for extra shelter or a whole awning for an additional, fully enclosed room.

Outwell Extended Frame System - 2008

The Outwell Extended Frame System is also unique. Here again, there is superior headroom and maximum stability, thanks to the initial strength of the tent’s main poles being able to support an offshoot pole via a cleverly designed special junction that also brings extra stability all-round.Carpets and Footprints - 2007

 

Outwell were first to introduce the concept of carpets and footprints back in 2007. Carpets are for supreme in-tent underfoot comfort, ensuring a cosy, warm and homely feeling. A footprint adds an extra dimension of insulation as well as protecting the main groundsheet from direct contact with the ground, thus effectively extending the life of the tent.

Sealed Ground System - 2005

An early example of Outwell’s practical thinking. By keeping the groundsheet as an integral part of the tent we were able to offer unique all-weather protection – from the ground upwards. A sealed-in groundsheet really is the most effective way of keeping as much mud and dirt as possible out of the tent. And it ensures no unwanted little guests in your tent!


Outwell Wind Stabilizer System

13. January 2012

Continual research and development by Outwell has led to making the market’s most stable family tents even better. New for 2011, OWS System (Outwell Wind Stabilizer System) has proved itself the best system yet for keeping a tent structure stable in the most adverse weather conditions.

Outwell Wind Stabilizer System

A key development for 2011, our Wind Stabilizer System uses strong Velcro fastening system as a direct attachment point for the flysheet and tent pole. We know it’s the best for keeping the whole tent stable whatever the weather. We’ve proved it in the windiest test conditions, for example, using our very own wind simulator to show our tents can stand up to conditions high on the Beaufort Scale.

We’re determined to keep proving ourselves, and our programme of constant evaluation ensures we’re the best. Tents from our AvantGarde, Premium, DeLuxe and Fantasy Collections have been assessed against the wind conditions as measured by the Beaufort Scale. Amazingly, they’ve proved they can withstand storm ratings of nine and ten.



Tents from our AvantGarde and Premium Collections have stood up to a minimum of Force Ten on the scale – that’s the equivalent to a storm with wind speeds of 55-63mph which will uproot trees! Even our slightly lower specification DeLuxe and Fantasy tents show that they can stand up to a minimum of Force Nine – a strong gale with wind speeds of 47-54mph that will blow branches off trees.
