e1e3dd6d-2564-498e-aa04-90a1b44b391e

The 10 best outdoor products, some of which could be very useful in a motorhome or campervan, have been named at the 2019 UK Outdoor Industry Awards (OIA), with 90 products being entered. Following a public vote that resulted in 30 finalists, it was up to a team of judges to name the winners.

The winners are:

Accessories: Pyramid Lyme Disease Test Kit

Backpacks: Lowe Alpine Altus 42

Camping Equipment: Hydra-Light Supercell Lantern & Charger (SC1C-L)

Climbing Equipment: Petzl Meteor

Clothing: Exotogg

Digital Product: Ordnance Survey New OS Map Features

Family: Ordnance Survey OS Picnic Blanket

Footwear: Skinners

Sleeping: Therm-a-rest NeoAir UberLite

Tents: Terra Nova Laser Compact 2

From these category winners, the judges selected the Therm-a-Rest as the overall Product of the Year. This insulated air mattress weighs just 250g (in regular size) and shrinks down to a small package when not in use. 

The judging panel included: retailers, journalists and gear testers; Steven Reynolds, (International Manager, Alpine Trek), Jamie Shepherd (General Manager, Gaynor Sports) and Paul Casey (Managing Director, Hooked on Granite Ltd. T/A Joe Brown Shops and The Climbers Shop), as well as Chris Townsend (Gear Tester, TGO), Rob Ganley (Editor, The Camping & Caravanning Club), Will Renwick (Editor, Outdoors Magic). The UK Outdoor Industry Awards is an initiative launched by the Outdoor Industries Association.

Entries for the 2020 Awards will open soon so keep an eye out for the next round of public voting on Twitter (@OIA_UK) or Facebook/Instagram (@OIAUK).
