I was the crash-test dummy for this apron... I asked Outware if they could make me a durable shop apron that I could use for a multitude of jobs and would last, and they delivered. Since then Outware has tailored it for the woodworker, however in my opinion you can weld in this, grind in this and just about do anything in this apron and it will stand the test... mine's still going strong after a lot of abuse!
These things a fabtabulous. They carry a knife, a trowel, string, secateurs, a fork, a phone, a moleskine notebook and a write in the rain pencil and a whistle to use when you need to signal the house that you need a drink… Ours gets used 5 days out of 7 and has become indispensable. The easy to adjust belt makes it easy for whom ever gets it first to adjust to their fit. They are really handy. Ps. They make great gifts. We sent two friends, one each and even got thank you notes from them…
Quite frankly, there is nothing that compares to the Outware Derwent Town Tote in my opinion. I love the simplicity, durability and the fact you can customise the pattern scheme, absolutely love it. I shop with it, ride with it (as a messenger bag) and use it like a laptop bag, it's multi-functional. I can thoroughly recommend the Derwent Town Tote as a go-to bag for all occasions.
This is a great laptop case. It is durable canvas on the outside and padded inside to keep my MacBook safe. It's so much nicer and much better quality than anything else I've seen on the market, and it's made locally and will last longer than the computer. Tops!
Best shopping bag ever! I have been using mine for about 2 years and they still look as new. Super sturdy, easy to use and tassie made. Ticks all the boxes. Have also given some away as presents, recipients claim it is the most useful shopping bag they have ever owned. Really like the little inside pocket for my phone and keys for easy access. Well done, Outware!
Well made resilient tote, an excellent size for cabin luggage and an overnight trip. Beautiful colours have not faded in about 2 years. I bought the medium size strap which is too big for day to day use for me...I'm a shorter woman.. but it has come into its own for travel. Just about to be stowed again!
I purchased this product for my partner and she was really happy both with the design and durability. It's a bag she uses all the time now. The overall look and attention to detail is excellent. The service from Outware was first class, from helping with my selection to prompt product arrival. If you're looking for something for yourself or a gift as I did, I would not hesitate in recommending an Outware product, huge selection, well priced and expertly made. Thanks to David and the Outware crew for an Australian product thats leading the market....go get one people.
5 stars. Love mine -well made and tough to boot-it generally goes with me out the door! Finally feel organised and optimistic for no more lost secs and snips. Great protected pocket for my larger sized phone and so handy to have snips and secs there to grab as needed. Also room for other bits and pieces or can add another pocket if needs be (usually run with two on the belt). I clip my carabiner speaker through label loop. Happy Days.
This is not the first product from Outware I've purchased, I have several of their products and again I'm super happy with this bag... very durable, well made and stylish, catching the eye of many friends that have jumped on the Outware bandwagon.... so as far as a review goes, get on these beautiful Australian made products, you won't be disappointed....
Love it! As a highly disorganized person traveling around a lot lately I don't have the bandwidth to keep track of much more than my toothbrush. It's great to have everything I need safe at hand. You can't paint the next masterpiece if you don't have your brushes!
I loved my Salamanca Shopping Tote so much that I bought a second, and then a third to give to my daughter. They are sturdy, hold a heap of groceries and they look good. I've had lots of compliments at the check out because they are so easy to pack. A really strong, handy and purposeful tote.
Nicely designed for walking to work, the Tyenna has an adjustable shoulder strap so you can wear it diagonally across your body. It is great quality, an everyday bag suitable for both women and men. It's a good size. It fits my wallet, keys, glasses and even my laptop, and has a separate internal easy access pocket for my phone. I enjoy my bag's bright lining and strap cover but you can just go with stylish dark canvas if you like a more classic look. Good service too.
We used our duffles extensively on a recent kayaking trip around the WhitSundays and they were excellent! Very useful for carting water from town to our accommodation, then one to carry and deliver the water drop (70kgs in total!) to Cairn beach. Great for storing stuff overnight to keep out the cute, local marsupials who like to chew our tasty gear. They are surprisingly comfortable when using the hand loops around your shoulders as a backpack too. Mesh is quite handy in kayaks as they don't build up moisture or sand....Great product!!
Ensuring your "kit" is looked after when not in use is important when maintaining your knives safely and in good condition. This knife roll is without a doubt one of the best on the market. The design allows for your knives to be stored safely without risk of damage to the knife or the knife roll itself. The workmanship is second to none and the quality of the material used is simply the best. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a high-quality knife roll. The service provided by Outware is exceptional, nothing was too hard in terms of customizing the roll to suit my personal work needs. You will not be disappointed with this product.
With 30 years of business travel under my belt, I’ve been sick and tired of toiletry bags falling apart or being so large that everything inside ends up being a jumble. 2 years ago I bought on a whim, a small and large gear bag from Outware - and never looked back. Using the small for shaving gear and the large for all the other ‘stuff’, it’s been perfect for keeping organised. Easy to clean, pack into bags … it’s a must for every serious traveler.
My favourite bag for an overnight stay or a big workday when I need to lug a change of clothes, tech or papers. It is so tough, it can take a lot of overhead plane locker punishment and still look great. I love the fact that I can have wild child paisley on the inside and stylish black canvas on the outside, customised just for me!
The Tyenna Day Tote is my go to every day bag that fits all my daily essentials. What can I say? Like it's bigger brother/sister the Derwent Tote - it is super tough, super functional, robust, and mega stylish when you can personalise your own bling! AND.. it is designed and made in southern Tassie 🙂
This is my go to, day to day use tote. Love the bling factor. This tote is super tough and extremely practical. I don’t need to be precious with it, and the canvas easily wipes clean. Volume enough to carry gear for an overnight staycation or a quick essentials shop on the ride home!
This is our third winter using the Outware log roll, originally purchased whilst I was pregnant to make carrying wood easier and that it was. Aside from being a little grubby, the log roll shows absolutely no signs of wear, not one loose stitch and my hubby loads this to the max! Not only is this helpful in carrying wood, it also keeps debris off the floor. Such a quality product, I absolutely recommend this to everyone who has a wood fire, fire pit, pizza oven, and much more, even handy tucked away in the caravan!
Great bag for those items that you need to access easily but may not fit in your PFD (phone, radio, GPS, small bag of nibbles). It looks great and being low profile it doesn't interfere with the other items that you may have on the deck (sail etc). Velcro closure seals nicely and being mesh it drains well.
With a shout out to such beautiful timber in the name, how could this product be anything but amazing! The attention to detail, and care used in the construction of this practical yet fashionable bag, are second to none. The thoughtful positioning of printed fabrics mean I could read the map themed lining, very smart! If you are looking for durability, practicality and aesthetics, this is the brand for you.
The spare paddle bag is made of a durable but flexible mesh that protects my spare paddle and my boat. Solid connection to boat but easy to remove to access gear. I am really happy with my spare paddle bag and I have no doubt I’ll be using it for many many years.
As a working artist it is very reassuring to have my paint brushes and drawing pens kept so securely, I've already used this for open air painting and artist workshops. The level of design and thought that has gone into this is clear in its aesthetics and functionality. I highly recommend this for those who value quality art supplies.
I purchased two of these satchels as Christmas presents last year for a niece and nephew to protect their iPads. David customised each of them individually with beautiful and colourful trims. These satchels are not only stylish but have a durable and very practical design. Highly recommended.
We have 2 Log Rolls from Outware. They are of exceptional quality, hold a good amount of wood in a stable bundle, are durable and keep the place clean by containing the dust. Just the right amount of stiffness in the fabric allowing it to be rolled up and stored easily. Everyone who has a wood fire could use one or more. We will get a third roll soon.
Have to admit I don’t use this bag for kayaking! But it gets so much use for day trips, camp packing, fishing and wet day cycle commuting (with a quick top up shop on the way home). As always with Outware this bag is the height of function and durability with beauty thrown in. I call it the “Tardis” for its ability to absorb lots of stuff 🤣
I need a bag to carry my diabetic supplies 24/7. I have used many bags over the years. My Junee bag is just next level. Quality, style, comfort and Tassie made. It has the room I need, without the unnecessary bulk. A great keepsake from my trip to Tasmania. It will be with me for a long time.
Ive used this bag for close to 2 years now and it's still like new. Lumping wet gear, food, camp gear, and lotsa time in the sun and salt water etc. Still rock solid. Because it's super strong the uses for this bag magnify. Even storing cold drinks on trips. Outware gear is functional and made to out last me!
When I first got this bag it was because I liked the colourful canvas and neat workmanship. Now after using it for a while I absolutely love it! It's so useful. A very strong, durable and spacious bag with well designed handles. I carry a lot of groceries in my Salamanca Tote, even awkward things like celery, baguettes and eggs travel well. People working in shops often comment on what a great bag it is because it's easy for them to pack. It's so versatile, sometimes I use it for the gym or to return books to the library. I recommend you get rid of those crappy cheap supermarket bags and buy one or two Salamanca Totes, you won't need anything else.
Excellent paddle bag. Simple and well built. I use mine frequently to protect a Werner Cyprus 215cm. The side strap is long enough so that you can sling your precious paddle across your back and keep your hands free for carrying a tub or duffle of gear, or pushing a wheelbarrow.
The Burrito Bag Grande is proving to be the perfect handlebar bag for when I'm bikepacking and staying in hotels. I'm able to fit a full set of casual clothes including a pair of sandals, so it is everything I need off the bike at night, sparing others from having to see (and smell) me in my cycling gear. You can tell the thought and care that has gone into making the bag - it feels like absolute quality, the canvas and zipper are bombproof. Everything from the ordering to the delivery went super smoothly. I suspect I'm going to be using and loving this bag for many years to come.
This tote is the perfect design - super sturdy and looks great. Ideal for the supermarket but also great to carry a laptop and other essentials - the internal pocket is really handy. The straps are super strong and a spot-on length to use as a shoulder bag... I highly recommend it!!
I bought this as a paddle bag for a second paddle on longer paddle trips with my sea kayak. Now I use it as my daily paddle bag for ocean ski and K1. Made solid and reliable, quality attachments that I'm not worried about getting pulled off in surf. 18 mths use and still like new. I like it now as a daily paddle bag as I can wash my paddle and throw it inside washed and wet and know it will dry just fine without rotting out my bag. Its light but strong. I was a bit worried about the mesh falling apart (like the the edges on my cloth bags) but no troubles - its really strong stuff. Salt, mud etc no probs. Hose it off. Done. Great design for me. All my Outware gear is all quality and certainly worth every cent.
A great product! I like to alternate between a Greenland paddle and a wing paddle, and this bag provides safe secure storage for the other one, while enabling easy access for changeover. It is light, tough, drains easily and is well made. The side webbing tabs secure to the kayak’s life lines, and the D-ring on the base (a new feature!) enables the bottom of the bag to be secured to the rear end of your boat. (Securing the base of the bag prevents rear half of the bag from “concertina-ing” and potentially snagging the paddle joiner clip when abandoning your customary level of finesse and trying to pull out the spare paddle in a hurry!)
The Inspirator's Pen Roll is beautifully made and has made its way into my daily kit. It is both durable and reliable. I confidently use it to store my fine drawing and writing equipment. Overall, I couldn't be happier and I highly recommend this pen roll for its excellent design and craftsmanship.
The perfect commuter bag for work and play. Black, stylish and strong on the outside, this beauty is having a sneaky psychedelic 60s party on the inside. The Huon Messenger fills me with joy and protects my gear, its got room for the laptop, and other useful pockets for A4 size papers and phone, specs and keys. I'm now a hardcore Outware fan, having a bag for every occasion.
I've got a thing for Made In Australia (Made in Tasmania more so). Nothing against the rest of the world but it's nice to recognise local excellence. Super happy with this cool well made Tote. It's clearly tough and durable. And it's made with care and precision. Finally, it's priced properly. Keep up the good work Outware.
I am loving my Coles Bay Duffle! It holds all my swimming gear comfortably - fins, kick-board, pull buoy, paddles and bands. The mesh outer means all my gear dries well between sessions. It’s easy to transport with the option of handles or a shoulder strap and feels very sturdy and strong like it will last forever. I highly recommend this duffle for any water based sports.
Some bags are better than others. This is one of those. It’s just fabulous, it fits my sandals, my hopes and dreams plus the other essential sh#t you need on a ride anywhere or for however long. An added bonus is that you can ask the good sewist at Outware to customise to whatever you want. Nothing is too much trouble for Outware.
Another well designed bit of gear from Outware. I’ve had mine for a year and never comes off my boat. Well put together and hard wearing, I use it for on water essentials that don’t fit in my pfd. The Velcro seal is solid and I love how it is slim when empty but can fit objects as large as my 1L water bottle.
We recently discovered the Log Roll when we stayed at an AirBNB in Tassie and found it a fantastic help in bringing in wood for the fire. I have bad arthritis in both hands, which makes carrying wood to our fire rather difficult. But with the Log Roll, I was able to carry more logs at the one time, and also with much more ease. We took note of the brand, and on our return home to Victoria, my wife insisted we purchase one. Which we did several weeks ago and are only sorry we hadn't discovered this simple, but incredibly useful and sturdy item much sooner. As a plus, we were able to choose a colour to co-ordinate with the colour of our lounge room. The speedy delivery and friendly response from Outware was much appreciated, and we highly recommend this business and product...and probably other products in time. We love it!
Being a chef and going through a number of knife rolls from all the major brands (all of which have failed after a few weeks or months), I can say that this is one of the most well designed knife rolls with the highest level of craftmanship! Every chef that sees it is instantly impressed and is looking to purchase one in the future. If you are in the industry you will not be disappointed, with the roll or the customer service from Outware.
Love this bag, have always been looking for something practical and well made to carry all the extra stuff we seem to accumulate in modern times. The Huon Messenger is constructed from excellent quality components, well made and very functional. Thank you Outware for providing a functional item that will last so long, I am thinking to include it in my will!
Bought this bag for school, as it’s really spacious, easy to carry, and looks super cool. It has absolutely lived up to my expectations and I love it! It carries all my art supplies, my DSLR etc. easily and the craftsmanship is evident. Would definitely recommend 🙂
Outware were great to deal with. They were willing to adjust the dimensions of the satchel to suit my device perfectly. The satchel design is minimal but effectively protects my laptop without bulk and complexity. Also appreciate the opportunity to purchase something locally made and priced very fairly.
I love my Outware Tyenna Day Tote. I was delighted to receive a gift certificate as a birthday present. It was hard to chose between an overnight duffle or a tote on the website but having chosen a black tote with full length shoulder strap flash and lining in "The 60's" fabric, I am very satisfied. It looks good. It's well constructed, The pricing was reasonable. The size is very practical. I can fit my keys, wallet, sunnies, umbrella, sunhat and more. Perfect for Tassie and, best of all, it's made locally. The customer service was fantastic. What more could you want?
Life is too short to keep carrying gear inside your kayak in tattered shopping bags. This Expedition Bag is clearly designed by someone in the know. Fits perfectly, super strong and durable. It's functional, well made and versatile. That's all I ask for. Bonus for looking great too.
I have been using two of these tote bags as my regular shopping bags for the past 2 years and they still look as good as the day I purchased them. Love the fact that you can place them on the ground and fill them at the checkout, they don't collapse on you. Tough, durable, stylish and made right here in Tasmania. Definately the only shopping bag you will ever need!
This bag will outlast religion. For a bloke it’s super handy to have the little internal pocket to stash keys, wallet and phone. Works a treat in Aldi as you can quickly load heaps into that giant maw. It also doubles up as my helmet, bike shoes and glove bag on mtb trips away. Handy dandy.
I really like my Log Roll. I’m just sorry I didn’t buy one sooner. I use it mainly for carrying firewood but also use it for other purposes. It saves a lot of mess in the house as well as on my clothes. Has made the task of carrying firewood to the fire a lot easier. It seems to be really tough in construction so I’m sure I’ll be very thankful for this purchase for a long time to come. It looks good too hanging on a hook near the wood heater ready for me to grab it and get another load.
A few friends and I purchased one of these beautiful bags as a very special gift 30th birthday present for a friend with a large family of beach-loving kids. They were delighted with it, as not only does it have enough room for togs and towels, but drinks, snacks and even a beach ball! A durable, well made bag that will be useful well into the future. Highly recommended.
Great aid to keeping multiple bits secure and easily accessibile when working. Bending and leaning over no problem, everything stays secure and comfortable and easy to get at. Great in the garden, i must remember to wear it on community weeding days too. And on drawing expeditions... sturdy, comfortable, practical.
Beautifully designed and crafted. Very unique, stylish and practical. I purchased this cool looking over the shoulder bag for commuting to the office to carry things such as laptop, paperwork, jumper and water bottle. It would be very practical for non work related activities as well.
After going through about 10 saddle bags in the last 20 years of riding, I finally feel this one will last. Very simple, no zips to break or velcro to pull off. Been good for a year, and very confident I won't loose tools like the last 10 I have used. If it would just stop raining I could ride my bike again!
I bought a Tyenna Tote at Salamanca Market in Hobart because the simple design and the paisley flash appealed to me. I love it. I’ve just toted it on a 6 week holiday in the USA thru Colorado to San Francisco. Perfect size for iPad, Kindle, small camera and other bits and pieces. I could stuff a light woollen jumper or rain jacket in if needed. The single internal pocket keeps it simple.
As a frame builder, I put a lot of thought into what goes on my bikes. For me the Burrito Grande doesn't rate a second thought, it's simply obvious. The bag exudes Outware's ethos - 'simple, stylish, durable' and the oversized bar bag delivers that in spades. Chapeau Outware.
I use my Derwent Tote every day. It goes shopping, it goes bicycle riding on the mail run, it’s goes on adventures to places like Paradice Bay in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Apart from it being easy to wear and use I’ve never lost anything out of it… Do yourself a favour, get one and get one with a paisley shoulder strap and insides. It’ll just make you happy you did!
This deck paddle bag has worked well for me on my sea kayak. It protects both my spare paddle and the kayak surface from scratching and keeps the paddle secure from being washed off the deck in breaking waves. It’s extremely well made and a durable product. Very happy with how it works for me.
A birthday present last year that has served me well since. Comfortably carrying enough wood, in one load, for the evenings fire. While neatly holding another load of wood, adjacent to the fire, getting a final dry ready for the next night. A birthday gift that keeps on giving.
Unlike a lot of the log rolls in the market, Outware’s one is put together to last. Not only is the canvas solid, the webbing handles are made from heavy duty polyester webbing that is easy to grip. The log roll looks and feels like it will last the distance. I’ll be investing in more products from Outware.
This is my go-to for longer roadie rides and shorter gravel adventures. Like all Outware products it's durable, functional and looks like it should be on the bike. You'll be surprised at how much you can fit in there, and far more comfortable than stuffing jersey pockets. I can thoroughly recommend the Outware Burrito-bag as a great addition to your next ride.
Great to support a local business with great designs and locally made! I love my new satchel bag and the beautiful fabric on its interior and strap detailing. I can find my stuff without it being all dark inside. Well done Outware, I loved my Mothers Day pressie!
I've had this bag for over 12 mths now and gave it a good run around the Keppel Islands for 10 days, small surf and regular coastal ocean. Straps adjust easy - it's never coming off in a swell, material is robust, drains water, easy to access, solid closure and still no signs of wear or fading. Your are never going to lose gear out of this bag and you can easily see where everything is. It's a bit different than I've been used to - however now I wouldn't have anything else.
Stop using plastic because the canvas Salamanca Market Tote bag is fantastic! Big, versatile and sturdy. Mine stays in the car as a gear storage option when I’m not using it for shopping. It has carried groceries, tools, clothing, our picnic stuff and even wet beach towels. Nothing seems to wear out this tote bag. I’ve flogged mine and it still looks good. No fraying of seams and no wear holes through the canvas. Hard-wearing, functional and importantly, it’s environmentally friendly. I totally recommend the Salamanca Market Tote as a Christmas or birthday present.
There are Totes and there are Totes. This one came on time (sorry for the rush but needed a quality gift presto pronto). It looks amazing and more importantly feels amazing; it really is a quality product. I'm sure the Made in Tasmania label will draw some attention and be carried with pride.
Such a time saver and mess saver! This log roll has improved my winter wood life dramatically. So strong it can handle 5 large logs at a time and it catches the mess from the logs. No more mess and less trips. Also saving my clothes by not having to hold the logs against me! Brilliant invention. Simple but brilliant. Strong, durable.. loving it!
Great bag for our wine 🍷 using it for first time to travel to an early Xmas 🎄 🎅 Picnic just perfect for the car and the picnic. Hi all, can you edit a review for me? "After actually using the wine bag I managed to fit 4 bottles of wine in it… very impressed with that, it provides lots of protection and looks great. We loaded the car up with luggage which rightly or wrongly we placed on top of the wine bag … not a single problem."
I am amazed at how much gear I can fit into this tool roll. Perfect for MTB expeditions when you need to carry extra bits & pieces, but also rolls up neatly with less gear. 3 pockets for storing/organising gear. Easy to get on and off. No zips to get rusty/broken, super quick to pack roll & fit.
Burrito Handle bar bag 👌 I’ve known the legend behind Outware products far too long and knew this bag would be 5 star quality. It definitely doesn’t disappoint. Recently did a 3 day self supported gravel adventure. The Burrito held 3 days of snacks and rain jacket. Can’t fault the quality craftsmanship. I would highly recommend any product from Dave @ Outware.
I love this bag and that I could customise the colours to make it so unique. It is definitely a large bag that is super tough, super cool and big enough for all the essentials and much much more. I have used it as my carry on bag for a quick trip interstate, heading to the beach with towel, spare clothes, water, food, supplies etc. or commuting when I need to swing by the supermarket on the way home for some dinner supplies. I use the smaller version - the Tyenna for more of a regular everyday size when I only need to carry the essentials plus a little bit more. I love that these products are Tassie designed and made, super robust, functional and you can choose how to customise and add your own personal bling!
After 30 years of business travel, I’ve found the ideal work carry bag! I’ve been complimented by other commuters on the evident craftsmanship and unique, stylish design of the Huon Messenger. Fitting everything I need for interstate commutes (iPad, notepads, headphones and associated chargers) this is the perfect bag for business travel.
I have purchased this bag as a gift for a family member and was delighted with the quality, workmanship and attention to detail. A beautiful, durable everyday bag with the bonus that you can customise it to suit your taste with ease. You can't go wrong if you purchase an Outware product. Extremely well priced for high quality Tasmanian-made, delivered to your door.
This bag goes where I go. The Tyenna Day Tote is by far the most useful of my satchel bags. I am constantly surprised by how much it carries for its size. I discovered I was able to fit my laptop, tablet, planner and a flanno as I trek to Uni. Thanks to Outware for creating such a beautiful and functional product.
I added a Burrito Bag to my gravel bike and it’s attracted a lot of envious attention. Its rugged construction, good looks and brilliant, but simple design, made me wonder how I ever did without it. Tuck your essentials safely away on a longish training ride and have them in easy reach. This thing will outlast your bike, and the one after that!
I bought this bag so I was able to easily stow a paddle at sea, not just retrieve one. Room to hold either flat or wing blade, easy on and off yet secure attachment to decklines, survived a thrashing. Easy to swap between boats if you have more than one. I'll also be using it for paddle transport to protect my carbon-fibre investment. My only suggested improvement is an attachment point at the narrow end, but I see from Nigel's review that this is now included- stops the bag sliding too close to the cockpit so you can't get the paddle out.
Yeah, it's great. I've only had mine for a bit, but you can tell it's durable, and it's really good for other stuff apart from the shopping. For example, when you go away for the weekend, you can put sundry stuff in it for easy access, it holds its shape so well it's really like a box with handles. Really happy to purchase an affordable product made in Australia that will last a lifetime, well done Outware. Also makes a really good present.
My old bag, bought in Edinburgh 15 years ago - finally gave up the ghost! I went on an unsatisfying search for a replacement. One day, I wandered down to the Salamanca Market and there was the Huon Messenger Bag. It is exactly right - handmade with real craftsmanship, quality materials and a killer lining! It is already part of my daily life, and rapidly becoming an all-time favourite. Outware will become an iconic Tassie brand.
