The Outwell Barmouth gives you additional storage for your tent but without taking up lots of space in your car boot.
A bedside table may sound an extravagant use of space in your tent, but if you’ve set-up a bedroom with camp beds for your camping holiday, such storage may prove very useful. And fortunately, the Outwell Barmouth won’t take up a lot of space in the boot of your car either 🙂
Unfolding the Outwell Barmouth tent furniture
Putting the Outwell Barmouth bedside table is so easy.
The main unit simply pops up, and then you fasten the zip on the back of the unit so that it keeps the shape.
Each of the drawers simply unfolds and then you place the drawer base insert inside them.
Is it flimsy? Just how practical is it?
This is just folding furniture, and so I would not recommend placing a lot of weight on the top.
A lantern and some other lightweight items, like your phone or a book, are no problem.
The bedside table is 50 cm high when put together. An ideal height if you have a camp bed.
Each of the drawers can take a maximum load of 2 kg, and the unit has an impressive 40 litres of storage space.
I’ve used this a couple of times so far. The first time, we used it the large bedrooms Outwell Hartsdale 4PA tent with the camp beds. It was a cold night and we placed the Outwell Katla heater on it.
The next time we used it was as additional storage in the Easy Camp Match Air 500 tent. This tent has smaller bedrooms, so the Outwell Barmouth was placed just outside the bedrooms. This was fine, as we were sleeping on mats on the ground.
Overall, I think this is a practical storage solution. I specifically like the way it folds flat and takes up very little space.
I would use this as supplemental storage. For a long family camp, you’ll still need a larger and more sturdy storage unit.
The other negative I found is that it doesn’t come with a storage bag. At the moment I keep it in one of the plastic bags that some other camping gear came in. It certainly would be annoying to get to the campsite only to find you left one of the pieces at home.
Those niggles aside, I think this is a great piece of additional storage that won’t break the bank nor your car boot! 😉
- Great additional storage for your tent that's easy to get to the campsite and won't break the bank.
- No storage bag to keep all the bits together.
