Sometimes you need to know some things before you commit your hard earned money. Please see below some commonly asked questions. If you need further information, please feel free to contact us.

Who or what is Outhaus?

We're a small independent business based in Essex in England, in the UK. We love learning bushcraft skills, camping (wild and not so wild), off roading and basically anything that's exciting and adventurous.

Why the name?

We actually started out life in the classic air-cooled Volkswagen camper van market but have since found our niche in bushcraft and camping. In the VW scene a there's a lot of Haus this and Werks that because of the German connection, so we thought that part of the name worked well. The Out bit is because the things we make are used outdoors. As it turns out, we are now very well known for our Australian style swags so the Aus bit works there too. And, no, it's nothing to do with toilets.

Tell me more about your products

We design all of our products here in Essex. We test them here too, and use them ourselves. We employ manufacturers from all around the globe, including China, India and Poland. We are passionate about quality and work extremely hard to ensure that every item bearing the Outhaus name is built to last. To this end we offer a no quibble Lifetime Warranty on all Outhaus products. We are constantly working to improve the quality wherever possible and any changes made to new versions are for the good, not to reduce cost.

Sales outside of the UK

If you are buying from a country outside of the UK we will remove the VAT element of the purchase at the checkout. But please be aware that your country may charge you VAT and/or duty on the import. As we understand things following Brexit, customers in EU countries will not be required to pay import duty but they may need to pay VAT to their customs authority. This would usually bring the cost of the purchase back up to around the published VAT inclusive price on our website.

Is there a warranty?

Sure. We are extremely proud of our products and offer a full warranty for the lifetime of the item. This warranty covers Outhaus branded products for all aspects of failure due to workmanship etc. Other product warranties are as per the manufactuers' own terms. Please see our Warranty Page for more details.
