Camping

Exped says that it developed its horizontal suspension system for more than half a decade

You can buy various forms of sheltered hammocks. Some are completely open, leaving you to sleep under the stars. Some have mosquito netting to protect you from pests. Some have waterproof protection for use in foul weather. Some have added insulation on the underside to keep you warm in winter or cooler spring weather. The Exped Ergo Combi has it all. It packs every type of protection that you could possibly want in the outdoors - save maybe for carnivore repellant - into a package in which you'll never have to worry about hard, cold dirt or poking sticks and rocks.  Read More

The Teal camper was designed around the Chevy HHR's 1,000-lb (455-kg) towing capacity

The Teal Camper gives campers an interesting way of combining the sturdy, hard-sided living quarters of a camping trailer with the easy storage of a smaller pop-up or tent. The camper is shipped to your door as a series of panels, and assembles into a two-person dwelling within about 90 minutes. When your camping season is over, you break it back down and store it neatly.  Read More

The Heatstick from Danish company Heatgear attempts to give backpackers and military personnel a better alternative to the camping stove. Not only is it lightweight, but this flameless heat source can also cook while you hike.  Read More

The LED light sleeps with you and is ready whenever you need it

The fearsome midnight pee: it's an experience that every camper would prefer to avoid. Yet long nights mixed with (lots of) cheap, light beer and chilly tents have a way of making wee-hour tinkles an inescapable part of the outdoor experience. The Snugpak Chrysalis sleeping bag arms you with a new weapon in the fight to break out of your tent and turn the faucet on high: a built-in LED light.  Read More

The Helio has a foot pump, carry case, water holder and 7-foot (2.1-m) shower hose

In an attempt to reach out to potential campers and backpackers that don't like the idea of goin' natural for days on end, tent and gear manufacturer Nemo Equipment has developed the Helio shower. Lying between bulky powered systems and basic portable gravity showers, it uses a lightweight, manual pressure system to give you a warm clean-down in the wilderness.  Read More

The Grillcube has an integrated wick for easy lighting

Grill aficionados know it: charcoal is superior to gas if you're looking for the best flavor. But charcoal's sheen starts to wear off when you add in the extra time it takes to prep, the added mess and the possibility of making an expensive, juicy ribeye taste like a gas canister. That's where gas pulls off the come-from-behind victory handily. The Grillcube levels the charcoal v. gas playing field by taking away some of the hassle and uncertainty.  Read More

The lightweight Cricket was designed for tow by many cars, SUVs and trucks

Garrett Finney has had a fascination with small, outdoor-connected living spaces since his childhood in the 1970s. He transformed that passion into a logical career path as a NASA engineer working on habitation modules for the International Space Station. But, he later decided that he wanted to apply some of that passion to something a little closer to home. That something is the Cricket Trailer.  Read More

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
