Half the reason you never motivate to go camping is because getting everything together is a total pain. But what if you had a system that packed your entire kitchen into a one durable, portable case? The sturdy, wilderness-worthy My Camp Kitchen is a purpose-built hardwood box with all kinds of shelves and cubbies to store all of your camp cooking gear. Once you’ve got it filled with your gear, all you have to do is heave it into the truck and you’re gone. Source
A weekend spent in the tent with your woman can be fun but face it, nothing kills camping romance like your post-hike B.O. This packable, high-pressure portable 11-liter camp shower gives you (&her) a solid 5-7 minutes of steady pressure to clean off the dirt so you can get properly dirty in that tent.

We found a firepit-grill-campfire cooking device. It would be easier to talk about if it wasn’t so versatile but it just does too much. Even Sunset Magazine was fumbling to describe it. Made entirely of heavy forged and welded steel, this over-the-fire trivet can be used for cooking over fire or charcoal with a grill, skillet, dutch oven or other cooking device. But it’s not just for cooking, use it as a firepit if you’re not hungry.
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.
