At the very heart of it, camping doesn’t require anything more than a body and the Earth. That being said, if a person can gather as much comfort and enjoyment out of the experience as possible it only further solidifies their relationship with nature.
On the other end of the spectrum, you’ve probably seen some people whose idea of ‘living off the land’ involves barely unplugging from the real world and might feature some mixture of an RV equipped with a hot tub or a tent with a king size bed.
We like to experience with a happy medium when it comes to our camping getaways. You can enjoy everything that being outdoors has to offer, but you don’t have to sleep on a dirt bed. Here are some cool camping inventions and accessories that help bridge that gap:
Tag Along Bicycle Camper
Biking and camping are two great examples of living off the land and becoming one with the Earth. Admittedly though, it can be kind of hard to carry all of your camping gear on your two-wheeler. The compromise most people come up with is to pack light to enjoy your cycling experience at the risk of your camping comfort. This tag along bicycle camper solves both problems. It is a pop-up tent with plenty of storage and an aluminum frame to make towing a breeze-ish.
VSSL Flask Light
We’ve all had the urge to grab a stiff drink during the middle of the night on our camp trips. It can be hard to hold the flashlight and pour the booze (or even find the booze) which is why VSSL put the flask into the flashlight. Killing two birds with one Keystone, so to speak.
Cooler Built Into a Chair
This little product is great for the campsite but also the beach or at a 4th of July celebration, or a concert, or just sitting in your backyard. It’s a handy fold-up chair but one that also features a cooler underneath. You’ll free up your hands for the walk to the campsite and you’ll have a birds eye view of your cooler so your pesky neighbor Carl doesn’t steal all your beers again.
Sea to Summit Pocket Shower
Everybody likes to feel fresh in the morning whether you’re camping or not. The pocket shower holds enough water for a 7-minute splash and the black color absorbs heat to make for a comfy cleanse.
A foldable grill that is portable and functional. This item is great for tailgating, camping, bicycling or any other place you need to enjoy some hot grub. The fabric grill is very lightweight and the easy storage allows the device to fit neatly in a drawer when you’re not out in the wild.
The best thing is that many of these gadgets have uses for events other than just camping. They improve your fun level at festivals, family reunions, or just in the back yard.
