Ten years ago the New Hampshire-based Nemo put the big-name mountain equipment brands on guard with their innovative tent designs. Now, Nemo is set to do a repeat with the introduction of their new spoon-shaped sleeping bags. This design allows freedom of movement where you need it most, in the shoulders, knee and feet areas. Set to launch next season, Nemo is currently offering a small pre-run of bags that come with limited-label labeling.
This isn’t just any old folding chair. This thing spins a full 360. In fact, if you’re bored in the forest you can just keep spinning. 720, 1080, 1260, you get the idea.
Sure, the JetBoil is idiot-proof but the Stove In A Can is even better. By burning a fuel cell made from recycled natural materials that dissolves as it burns, you eliminate one more piece of waste in camp cooking. No empty fuel canisters headed for the landfill. This stove is also fast and efficient. It’ll boil water in 5 minutes flat and each fuel cell burns for one full hour.
Just because you’re out on a camping trip doesn’t mean you have to dine like a caveman or Cub Scout. There are plenty of alternatives to campfire-ash-crusted wieners and beans from the can. Coleman’s Outdoor Portable Oven is a propane powered two-burner stove that also has an oven large enough to cook a 12-inch pizza. Just the thing for keeping it gourmet in the great outdoors
If you’ve ever camped in steep, mountainous terrain, you know how hard it is to find a tent site. The Tentsile tent solves this problem by combining the hammock and a traditional tent into an enclosed, off-the-ground shelter. They make 3 sizes, the biggest with a capacity of 5-8 people. Trees not included.
The idea of being “off the grid” is highly romanticized these days but let’s face it, for the few who actually do it on their annual camp out or canoe trip, it can get freakin’ dull. This wood-powered BioLite camp stove could change that. Not only does it burn wood in a clean, no-smoky-taste way, it generates electricity, allowing you to power up iPods, phones and such, via its USB port. Camping season is coming.
The Backcountry Boiler is a camp stove that burns stuff like sticks, pinecones and leaves instead of fossil fuel. It’s super light and the design of the little combustion chamber gulps in air for a quick heat up. Overall it’s a great idea unless it rains.
Looks like The Snuggie finally has some competition. The Napsack from Poler is a hooded sleeping bag you can wear. Unzip it at the bottom and shoulders and bam, you’re in a cozy little suit.
This compact UV water purifier gives you one more reason to stop consuming those horrible Single Use Plastic (SUP) bottles. Since UV rays kill 99% of bacteria, viruses, and other stuff like Montezuma’s revenge, you can now safely drink water from the tap or any other source previously deemed sketchy.
Hunters and hippies agree on one thing: trees are cool. Hippies hug them and hunters hide in them waiting for animals to wander into range. Both parties could employ the Tree Hook. For hunters, it’ll hold your rifle or bow up off the ground. Hippies can use the hook to hang your protest signs and Prius keys while you frolick.
