The new Outwell pole collection
POPPING UP QUICKLY IN SUMMER 2020
PEACE OF MIND FOR HAPPY CAMPERS
When we talk pole tents, we think reliability. It’s a tried and tested method of tent building which has withstood the test of time and of course some pretty horrendous weather, most of us have a treasured memory of camping on torrential days with the family when we were young. Family camping has come a long way. Comfort, space and dependability is to be expected with a lot of today’s cutting edge tent ranges and Outwell's range of poled tents for Summer 2020 will certainly meet that line and then push it further.
Outwell's New poled range is spread across 3 categories and has a lot of variance from smaller 2-person dome tents which go up in minutes to large family tunnel tents which will easily hold up to 7 happy campers in comfort with enough space for everybody to do as they please. These categories are named Encounter, Privilege and Premium.
Compact, quick pitching and perfect for the weekend
The Encounter collection is a great place to start as these are the smallest tents in Outwell’s new range, though it does also include some tents with a great standing height. These are your perfect option for weekend getaways and short breaks. All tents in this range have a good, sturdy Outtex 3000mm Hydro static head flysheet which is fire retardant like all tents across Outwell’s range and though sitting at entry level, are still chock full of quality and features that we’ve come to expect from any Outwell tent. With Dark Inners (for a longer lie-in) left in place, pitching these tents is a breeze – a big plus when moving on each day. This range sleeps 2-5 happy campers.
Looking for more space?
Looking for more space? That is where the Privilege collection comes in, sleeping 3-7 campers throughout. This collection also offers the premier bedroom with more generous floor space, cable entry points for bringing in electrics such as lights, darkened inner to reduce light entry to enhance sleep quality and plenty of storage pockets. The Outtex 4000mm HH flysheet adds a generous layer of protection. The new for 2020 Hook Track system for suspended lights and handy hanging points for clothing and towels makes these tents really adaptable. What’s more the pre-shaped Duratec FlexSystem fiberglass poles maximise internal space whilst remaining strong, light and reduce pack size greatly.
Looking for more luxury?
Looking for more luxury? That is where the Premium collection comes in. These tents sleep 4-7 happy campers comfortably and are jam-packed with nifty features. You can rely on the bombproof Outtex Pro 6000mm HH Flysheet around the outside of the tent. These tents come with the Outwell Ambassador Master Bedrooms with a full 230cm depth, generous standing space, cable entry points and darkened inners. On the Bedroom inner doors this range also benefits from the Quick and Quiet magnetic system new for 2020, magnetic strips sewn into the vertical seam of the inner doors allowing quick and quiet bedroom entry and exit without waking up the entire family, you also have a zip which goes over it for more secure closure when required.
