We've all been there. You're out camping, and you run into "that guy": the one who brought his Solar-Powered Mosquito-Repelling Head Lamp, or whatever the latest craze is.

People are always coming up with new and completely unnecessary camping gizmos. The five on this list, although wacky, might actually have some takers.

1. Cookware That Packs Totally Flat

This stainless steel cookware packs totally flat. Then, when you need one, the sheet folds right into a pot.

2. Really Portable Blanket

Notice these items folding into a trend? But really, this water-resistant blanket can accommodate four people, and you only need one small pocket to accommodate it.

3. Chair That Packs Into the Size of a Water Bottle

The Therm-a-Rest Treo Chair gets its name from, you guessed it, a thermos. At just under two and a half pounds, this could be a nifty nice-to-have for your next family camping trip.

4. Wearable Sleeping Bag

One question, though: what the heck is going on in this video?!

5. Tent Village

These interconnecting pod tents can probably accommodate your whole family?

Would you use any of these while camping?
