Our Review

Not everyone needs a massive family tent.

But getting a smaller tent doesn't mean you miss out on all those great features, as in larger Outwell tents.

The Outwell Ashwood 3 is a compact family tent.

The Outwell Ashwood 3 is ideal if you are camping only for a few nights and are either two parents and a small child or a parent taking two small children camping.

One of the big advantages of a tent like the Outwell Ashwood 3 is that it offers many features without the weight and size of a large family tent. It weighs just over 17 kg and has a pack size of 66 x 33 cm.

Despite its smaller size, the tent still has fantastic features, such as the bug mesh Quick and Quiet doors on the front, which are great for coming and going without letting the bugs in.

So, if you want the features of a large Outwell family tent but in a smaller package, the Outwell Ashwood 3 may be the perfect solution.
