Outwell Collaps Range

Of all the bulky items in your camping arsenal, pots and pans are among the bulkiest, taking up a fair bit of room in your tent and your car. That’s where the Outwell Collaps range can help. As the name suggests, all the products collapse down when you’re not using them, so you can store them away easily when you’re away and also at home. You can choose from various sizes of bowl, washing up bowls and even a kettle. An absolute must-have for those who find they struggle for space.
