There’s nothing like spending a few days in nature, kicking back and enjoying the fresh air and stillness of the outdoors. Make your next camping trip extra special with these amazing finds.
Portable Wood Burning Camp Stove
Sure, the whole point of camping is unplugging – but that doesn’t mean you aren’t going to take your phone or maybe another beloved gadget. Now you can stop worrying about bringing the battery chargers because the BioLite CampStove2 does double-duty. It gives you a smokeless campfire while using the heat created by the fire to generate power that will charge your gadgets. Best of all, it weighs only 2.06 pounds and packs down to the size of a 32 oz. water bottle.
Solar Inflatable Lantern
The Luci Original is a 65 lumen solar-powered lantern with a charge that lasts for 24 hours. It’s waterproof and packs down to one inch, weighing just 4.4 ounces. You can hang it by its handle in your tent or at your campsite. And don’t pack it away when you get home – you can use these for outdoor parties, too.
Portable Espresso Maker
Who wouldn’t want to wake up to fresh, mountain air and a bracing cup of espresso? Now you can have both. The Wacaco Minipresso GR doesn’t need charging or batteries – it’s manual! All you need to do is add your favorite ground coffee and boiling water, and you have yourself the perfect cup, ready to energize you for the active day ahead.
First Aid Flashlight
There’s nothing better than camping gear with multiple functions. This LED flashlight by VSSL Gear also stores an ultra compact, fully equipped first aid kit.
Of course, we saved the best for last. The Tentsile Connect 2-person tree tent allows you to set up your tent suspended between the trees, freeing you of the hassle of trying to find flat ground and literally giving you a whole new perspective on the world. You can camp anywhere with this amazing tent.
