It’s that time of year. Here’s what you should get fellow camping enthusiasts for the holidays.
Hitting the wilderness is great when you’re prepared for everything involved in a camping trip. That preparation is what makes the difference between a good camping trip and a horrible one.
Now that the gift giving season is here, we wanted to help guide you to some choices that would make any camper smile, and get used again and again. Because that’s what a good piece of camping gear is all about: getting used on trips time after time.
Check out our picks for the best gifts to give the camping enthusiast on your shopping list.
The 4-season, 2-person Marmot Thor Tent comes highly recommended, and uses a silicone-impregnated, polyurethane-coated fly to repel rain and snow.
If you need more room for your crew, check out the Kelty Trail Ridge 6 Tent. Two 15-square-foot vestibules add even more room to the spacious four-pole tent, and it’s super easy to set up.
Two good hammock trees near the campsite? The Grand Trunk Nano-7 Hammock is going to be perfect.
If you know someone who could use a 5,000-cubic inch back, the Osprey Packs Aether 85 Backpack will satisfy their needs.
The Big Agnes Air Core Sleeping Pad will get your camping cousin to return the favor with quality gifts for seasons to come. He’ll love it that much.
Let them laugh, and while someone else is swatting bugs from their face, the smart camper in the U.S. Military Surplus Mosquito Head Net will kick back and relax.
If you care about your camping family member or friend, get them a ACR ResQlink 406 Personal Locator Beacon. Any trip, no matter how deep into the woods, will be a lot safer with one of these.
A Platypus GravityWorks 4.0L Filter System is great for ensuring they’re getting clean water every time. That’s very important on a camping trip, if you didn’t know.
Cooking at the campsite is awesome, but camping stoves are often big and bulky. Not the case with a Jetboil Sumo Canister Stove.
Saving space is key for a backpacker, and someone who has a GSI Outdoors Bugaboo Camper Cookset is wise to that.
More space saving is given by the Kelty LumaCamp Lantern, not to mention its 170 lumens of light, and can last up to 172 hours.
Browning® Denali Minus 30 Degree F Wide Mummy Bag for the ultimate in value and performance. -30°F? No problem.
