Our Review

For years we've used this large plastic water carrier.

A plastic water carier

Our old water carrier.

It holds 10 litres of water, is very rugged, and has been to many campsites.

There's one problem: it's quite bulky to take.

Trying the new Outwell Collaps Water Carrier

Of course, a simple answer is to take a folding water carrier. There are plenty of those available. However, some can develop leaks where they are repeatedly folded. Some don't stand up too well. We like to keep a tap available on one of our camping tables, like in the picture above, so a water carrier that can be left standing is a must for us.

Enter the new (and improved) Outwell Collaps water carrier.

Another view of the Outwell Collaps water carrier

The Outwell Collaps water carrier holds up to 12 litres of water.

This holds more water than our current water carrier. It's also more comfortable to carry when full, with a rounded handle built into the lid.

And, of course, it collapses to take up much less space when transporting.

Showing height of collapsed water carrier

The water carrier folds up so it is only as high as the base.

When collapsed it is only 8.5 cm high.

Tap Issues - Fixed

This is not Outwell's first version of the Collaps water carrier. Previous versions of this model had issues with the tap that could break.

The tap still sticks out, so you must be careful when transporting the water carrier. However, it is now a new and more rugged design. So far, we've not experienced any problems with it. However, it's not been through lots of camping trips yet. If we find problems later, we'll update this article.

Close-up picture of the tap

The tap on this works really easily.


There are other collapsing water carriers around. However, the material on this one from Outwell feels thick and rugged, and I'm sure it will last the test of time. From what we've seen, we're giving it the Thumbs Up.
