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.

Shipping 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 all aspects of failure due to workmanship etc. Please see our Warranty Page for more details.
