Robens technical accessories integrate tradition with outback apeal and performance

Written by 

Award-winning outdoor specialist Robens has built on the success of its superlative range of polycotton tents and tipis with its new Outback accessories.

These address the growing demand for the base camp comfort found in equipment with a heritage in that used by those early American pioneers whose spirit is captured in evocative sepia photographs.

Quality traditional materials and designs have been integrated into the Robens portfolio of technical products to create an exciting range that is perfect for wilderness cooking over an open fire − that iconic outdoor past time that, from bushcraft to Glamping, appeals to so many campers looking for the simpler back-to-nature experience.

Useful Robens tools like the Folding Saw and a Multi Axe that includes a saw in its handle and fire steel in its sheaf, help create the campfire. This is spanned by the Robens Telescopic Aluminium Tripod that supports the latest steel pots and kettle, or the cast iron Dutch Ovens over the fire. The Dutch Ovens can also be placed in the fire and covered in embers for versatile cooking, including baking – the Carson Lid Lifter helps safely lift the ember covered lid to check contents.

Versatility continues with the Tahoe Pan – perfect for breakfast fry-ups − or the zonal cooking surface provided by the Bighorn 3 Legged Pan griddle after preparing the meat and veg using the Inyo knife and chopping board.

The Lassen Grill Trivet Combo in small and large provides a useful cooling surface or for cooking. Liquids can be held in the Gila Steel Bottles − two sizes of durable flask that have a large opening for ice. Such equipment makes food preparation a dream and the resulting gastronomic delight can be served up on traditional high quality enamelled steel thanks to the Tongas Enamel Set  that comprises mug, plate and bowl in pure white.

The dream kitchen continues with four new wood stoves. The Denali and Kobuk  are suitable for any Robens tent that features a flue port. Both pack down for convenient transportation and are easy and quick to assemble. Each of these stable stoves has a flue protector and provides a large cooking area and the option of fitting a 1.8-litre Bering Water Heater to the flue for a ready supply of hot water. The larger Kobuk is designed to sit closer to the ground for efficient space heating and features two side racks, adjustable air intake and glass inspection window to check the firebox.

When on the trail wood burners save having to carry any special fuel for they consume dry wood gathered during the day. Robens has introduced two options for 2017. The Logger Wood Stove (left)is a light, compact model that creates a simple box in which to hold a small fire. Small pots can be balanced over the flame on the upper castellated rim and small twigs fed in from the side as fuel. The Lumberjack Wood Stove (right) is a double wall construction that generates and heats wood gas for the effective and cleaner combustion of wood fed in from the top. Three supports hold pots over the flame. Both stoves are made from stainless steel and are supplied with carrybags.
