but feel a little unsure about "roughing it?" You'd be surprised at all the products available to help turn any camping trip
into your new favorite type of adventure. Here are the best products and gear you'll need to make the great outdoors truly great... and a little more comfortable.
Otterbox Trooper LT 30 Cooler ($300):
This 30-quart cooler will keep all your favorite foods and beverages cold (and it keeps ice for up to three days). It has a leakproof seal, thermal insulation, and wide opening. Plus it's water-resistant, comes with a bottle opener, and converts into a backpack to make transport easier.
Rumpl The Original Puffy Blanket ($95+):
Why leave the comforts of home at home when you can bring it on the road? This packable puffy blanket is warm, waterproof, odor-resistant, and machine-washable.
Camp Chef Everest 2 Burner Stove ($146):
Camping food doesn't have to be cold or eaten out of a can. Bring a portable stove that has two powerful 20,000 BTU burners and you can whip up all your favorite foods wherever you are.
Coleman Propane Cylinders ($32 for Four 16 oz. tanks):
Make sure you have some propane to fire up your camp stove. Each one has about six hours of burn time.
Topo Designs Mountain Pack ($169):
Rugged enough for the mountains and stylish enough for everyday use, this backpack has it all: a big main compartment with a drawstring closure, deep water bottle pockets, compression straps, paddle shoulder straps, and more.
Stanley Base Camp Cook Set for Four ($80):
This scratch-resistant, rust-proof cook set is great for outdoor eating and cooking — it comes with a pot, frying pan, flatware, utensils, trivets, and more. And it conveniently all stacks into one easy-to-carry package.
AllTrails (Free, $30/year for Pro Account on iOS and Android):
Find the best trails nearby with this app, which includes driving directions, trail maps, difficulty levels, reviews, and more. It's like having your own trail guide in the palm of your hand.
Coleman Dome Tent ($100 for a 4-Person Tent):
This dome tent has waterproof floors, protected seams, and large windows for ventilation. It has continuous pole sleeves with reportedly cut down setup time to just 10 minutes
Bottle Bright ($8):
Do you remember the last time you really cleaned your reusable water bottle? Us either. Just drop one of these chlorine-free handy tablets in a bottle full of water, wait about 15 minutes, and you'll be germ-free once again.
Patagonia Provisions Organic Fruit + Almond Bars ($27 for a 12-Pack)
: Make sure you have healthy snacks on hand to ward away hunger. These bars are made with just organic fruit, almonds, seeds, fruit juice and are easy to throw into a pocket or bag.
Coast EAL20 375 Lumen LED Lantern ($36):
Let there be light... at your campground, with this water-resistant, battery-powered, 80-hour runtime lantern. There are four modes, including red emergency lights.
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter ($17):
Even though the likelihood of you not having potable water available is slim, it never helps to be prepared by bringing a personal water filter. And you'll feel like a true outdoor adventurer carrying one.
