The new Outwell Encounter Collection of lightweight tents is ideal for
active couples and young families. Freedom is the watchword with two
stunning tent ranges – Cloud and Earth – created using time-proven tunnel
and dome tent designs to provide comprehensive reliable options for long
weekends, touring and those spontaneous getaways that we love so much.
All Encounter tents are made from the brand’s exclusive Moroccan
Blue/Neutral Grey Outtex 3000 flysheet fabric with a 3,000mm hydrostatic
head waterproof rating for reliability and durable performance combined with
easy care and maintenance. A detachable bathtub groundsheet cuts out
draughts, water ingress and crawling insects. Quality, durable fibreglass
poles are used for fast pitching through the Power Mesh Pole Sleeves that
mimic the aerodynamic properties of the flat pole sleeve found in many
Other Encounter features include D-shaped door entries for easy access;
luminous guylines for safety; and the unique Taped Hanging Point System
which attaches the inners with a toggle through each suspension point that
is taped to the tent for strength and security.
Earth tunnel tents (pictured) comprise four models that sleep two, three,
four and five respectively in single bedrooms that sit behind the large
porch area. This is lit by side windows with vents above to keep the area
light and airy. All tents have a large D-shaped front door and the Earth 3
to 5 tents also have L-shaped side doors.
Cloud tents (pictured) provide similar options to the Earth, but in the dome
style for added choice, with headroom concentrated at the apex of the inner
tent rather than at the front of the inner tent and porch.
