For festivals like Burning Man and Coachella where your chances of literally melting from the heat are pretty decent, the 6-person No Bake Tent could be a lifesaver. It’s a got a unique design that keeps you from roasting alive when the sun pops up and starts baking the mesa. The outer layer of the tent reflects and blocks 90% of infrared & visible light rays, so it stays warm and dark inside. It is 6’6” tall and offers a long list of windproof, dustproof, and custom comfort features.
The compression of your sleeping bag and clothing against the tension of the hammock can make you chilly. The Hammock Cocoon solves that problem. It encases your entire hammock with layers of Travelsoft insulation—this not only reduces compression but keeps you warmer and even reduces wind chill. Made of anti-bacterial fabric it stores in a compact compression stuff sack & weighs just 6 pounds.
When you have the luxury of choosing comfort over lightweight portability, a swag tent is what you want—it’s all about the built-in mattress pad.

When it’s time to break camp & move on, it all rolls up & stores in a duffle bag.
The Kinjia from Primus is smaller than most 2-burner campstoves, making it lighter & more portable. It folds up for easy packing and features a wood-covered metal handle.
