The pandemic inspired many to try camping for the first time. With a plethora of gear to choose from, it's hard to know exactly what to get the nature lovers in your life. We've put together a small list of our favorite camping equipment for new and experienced campers at a variety of price points. From tent and car camping, to campers and glamping, we've included something for everyone.
Small Capacity Water Storage
Best For: A short weekend camping trip.
You can’t go on a camping trip without water. Finding ways to store and transport that water can be heavy and annoying. With our line of Seeker water storage bags, having water at your campsite is easier and lighter than ever! The Seekers are designed to collapse down and fit into an included storage bag so when empty, it takes up to little to no space. Compatible with most 42mm threaded filter caps, the Seeker is a one stop shop for campsite water storage needs. Pro Tip: We recommend freezing them to use as an ice pack in your cooler. Then once the ice has melted, there is cold water to drink!Available in 2L ($24) 3L ($27) & 4L ($30)
Best For: Mornings at the campsite.
Campsite coffee can still be gourmet with Stanley’s Pour Over Coffee Set. Everything needed for a warm cup of joe is all in one place. The set includes a stainless steel pour over filter, and a classic Stanley insulated mug. The pour over filter is built in and reusable, so there is no need for disposable coffee filter waste. Now the perfect cup of coffee can be brewed at every campsite.Available in multiple colors ($40)
Large Capacity Water Storage.
The high capacity, Expedition 8L water storage container holds extra water without the extra weight. It includes our camp tap that plugs directly into the Expedition’s Plug-N-Play cap for quick and easy dispensing at camp. The Expedition has built-in lash points and a webbing handle so it can hang or attach to racks, hooks or just about anywhere at camp. Unlike most larger capacity water storage containers, our Expedition collapses flat, and can be rolled up and secured with its tether when empty.
Available for $65
Best For: Cleaning campsite dishes.
Taking the time to scrub dishes is the last thing you want to be doing on a camping trip. Bottle Bright biodegradable cleaning tablets are the easiest way to take care of those hard to clean coffee mugs and stainless steel bottles while miles away from a sink. Simply fill bottles or gear with warm water and drop in a tablet or two - since it is biodegradable and soap free, you can empty dirty dishwater with ease . Let Bottle Bright fizz up and take care of the hard part, so you can get back to making smores around the campfire. Bottle Bright is what every camper wants to see in their stocking!
Available in a 12 pack ($8) & bulk pack ($39)
Best For: Chilly campsite evenings.
There is nothing better than evenings around the campfire on a camping trip. When those evenings begin to get a bit chilly, a camp blanket is always a necessity. Rumpl’s Original Puffy is on our list of must packs for a camping trip. These blankets are lightweight and easy to store, made with the same insulation you’d get from your favorite sleeping bag. Rumpl’s come in a variety of colors and designs, so there really is a blanket for every camper.
