Although the 21st Century has seen the dawn of 3D printers, the discovery of new Earth-like planets and seen the rise of the convenient smart phone, approximately 1.5 billion people around the globe remain without access to a stable or safe source of light. Commonly in some of the world's poorest regions, kerosene lanterns are the standard form of night time lighting, which leads to the possibility of fires, explosions, asphyxiation and toxic fumes. Safe and renewable solar lighting presents an obvious solution to this problem and the NOMAD solar lamp has been created for just that.  Read More

The Midget Bushtrekka from Kamp-Rite is a really rather handy-looking tow-along tent-cum-bicycle trailer for extended cycling trips. And as large as it is - 56 pounds (25.4 kg) in weight packing in 180 liters (48 US gallons) of storage - Kamp-Rite does not intend that the Bushtrekka be confined to sedate cycle paths. Rather, it sounds as though Bushtrekka is designed for fairly serious off-roading. But is it up to the job?  Read More

Esbit charcoal grills are super-portable thanks to light, folding design

There are a lot of portable grills on the market, but most are only portable if you happen to be traveling in your car. Grills light and convenient enough to carry on your person to a campsite, sports field or other off-the-beaten-path areas are a little rarer. This example, the Esbit BBQ Box charcoal grill, is designed to be small and light enough to take pretty much anywhere your feet can carry you.  Read More

The Revolve chair adds a little movement and convenience to your campsite or tailgate

The Revolve camping chair is a folding camping chair with a twist - a literal twist. Unlike the average camping chair, which is planted in one position, the Revolve gives you 360 degrees of motion like a desk chair. The camping chair just got a little more comfortable and convenient.  Read More

PowerPot is a line of camping cookware, that generates electricity using heat

Thermoelectric materials are able to generate an electrical current, via a temperature gradient within themselves. If thermoelectric fabric were used to make a jacket, for instance, the temperature difference between that garment’s cool exterior and warm interior might be enough to charge devices carried in its pockets. A current could also be generated by a vehicle’s thermoelectric exhaust pipe, due to its hot interior and the cool air surrounding it. Now, entrepreneurs David Toledo and Paul Slusser have developed a line of thermoelectric cooking pots, that use the heat of a fire to generate electricity when camping.  Read More

With the help of a hiking pole, the Hoopla 4 eliminates the need for lots of poles

For generations, campers and backpackers have been relying on poles and guy lines to form the taut, wind-breaking structure of tents. With its new Hoopla 4, Mountain Hardwear has a different idea: rely on the tent fabric itself to create the main structure with minimal hardware involved.  Read More

Camping in the wilderness may never be the same after a “glamped” experience at Minaret Station. Located in the heart of the Southern Alps in New Zealand, the site offers luxury tented glamping amid a picturesque glacial valley. The remote location is only accessible by air, where guests are flown in by helicopter before being escorted to their luxuriously furnished tented suite. While the accommodation is constructed from canvas tents and the property classifies itself as a “camp," this nature retreat has little in common with the traditional camping experience.  Read More

The Roombox is available in Europe at the moment, and the company plans to expand to other...

The problem with campers is that you need a good tow vehicle with hitch to travel with them. If you have a smaller, less powerful car or lack a hitch, you'll need to spend money on a better car or hitch installation before you can even consider a camper. The Swiss Roombox levels the playing field, allowing even small car owners to enjoy many of the conveniences of a camping trailer. The device is a removable module that turns the average car into a mini-motor home.  Read More

Strap your gear to the back of your car and increase your gas mileage over a rooftop box

Similar to the Auto Rucksack, the Rightline Cargo Saddlebag takes your cargo off the roof and throws it on the rear-end of your car. Unlike the Auto Rucksack, a pack aimed at small cars, the Cargo Saddlebag is designed for larger vehicles like SUVs, minivans and crossovers. It's basically a backpack for your vehicle, that hauls all sorts of gear and toys.  Read More
