Welcome to OookWorks.

I make innovative lightweight camping and backpacking gear particularly suited to the needs of UK and Northern European users.

The range includes custom inners for tents and shelters, custom groundsheets and footprints, and I often have new ideas that are being developed and tested so it's worth having a look at the OookBlog now and again.

Happiness is an OookNest in the Alps
"Hi Sean

I hope you're pleased to hear that the 2OookNest is highly appreciated.

It's cavernous. I'm 182 cm and have ample space, lying or even sitting on a folded NeoAir...
I still can't quite believe how small it packs down and how light it is.
I've used umpteen tents, but for it's stability and space this setup's incomparably light weight. Utterly incomparable.
We're impressed. And Oook'ed

So L and I will be taking the SL3 2OookNest tent (what a name...) on
a 18-20 day trip across the northern scandinavian mountains this autumn.

Cheers for the great job."

I have particular expertise with Golite and Mountain Laurel Designs shelters, and the OookNest for the Golite Shangri La 3 is how it all began.

All Oookworks designs are handmade to order, by me, right here in Scotland, so specific requirements can be catered for.

If you have an item in mind that you'd like to have made just get in touch and I'll be happy to discuss it with you.

IN STOCK - items available with no wait time




Dude, where's my nest?

Lead times on OookNests are currently about as long as a piece of string. I'm doing my best to get orders out as quickly as possible, but be prepared for a long wait.

If you need something in time for a planned trip get in touch and I'll see what I can do.

If you do at any point wonder what's happening with your order, just drop me a line and I'll get back to you ASAP.

Cheers,
Sean
Cunning Oook Tip:
Make your own Cunning Doobrie.

If you use Black Diamond Trail trekking poles, a perfect pole joining Doobrie can be made from a short length of 12mm steel tube. You can buy it by the metre from B&Q for about 4 quid.
A 170mm length weighs about 30g and works a treat. Look at some of the photies of the OookNests and you'll see it.
