Every year new technology is introduced that makes camping more fun and convenient than ever. This week we’re going to look at some of the best new camping and outdoor gear of 2019. From life-saving emergency equipment to dry-packs we’ve got you covered. Read on to find some great products you may need for the 2019 camping season!
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter
The LifeStraw is one of the best accessories not only for camping but travelling in general. The LifeStraw removes 99.9999% of bacteria so you have clean, clear drinking water no matter where you are. One straw will filter 3,000 liters of water (792 gallons), so you’ll be covered for a long time.
X-Plore Emergency Paracord Bracelets
Sticking with the emergency theme, these inexpensive bracelets are perfect for everyone on your next outdoor adventure. The X-Plore includes a compass, flint fire-starter, a scraper (for shedding wet bark) and a whistle. This is about as cheap as it gets for a critical item like this.
Grillaholics Stuffed Burger Press
Talk about easy! This easy-to-use (and clean!) burger press fits easily into your RV cabinets or your backpack, and you’ll be able to make delicious, perfectly-sized stuffed burgers no matter where you are.
Wacaco Portable Espresso Machine
This portable espresso maker will fit easily into any backpack so you don’t have to feel like you’re roughing it out on the trail. Unlike other portable coffee makers, this doesn’t require N2O cartridges or compressed air. If you like coffee like we do, don’t forget your Wacaco Minipresso.
Thermacell Portable Mosquito Repeller
Every camper knows there’s nothing worse than being hounded by mosquitoes. They carry all sorts of nasty diseases, make you itch and are really the worst part of camping. The Thermacell gives you 15 feet of protection in every direction, and there are no odors or vapors. Just turn it on and the mosquitoes are gone!
Igloo Trailmate Journy Cooler
You don’t mess with success, and Igloo has long been the
industry standard for coolers. This is admittedly not
the most inexpensive item on our list, but for good reason. Extremely durable, this cooler will last a lifetime, and has thick wheels that will allow you to drag to virtually any campsite. The best part? Once you fill it with ice it’s good to go for four full days!
Earth Pak Waterproof Dry Bag
Ever been caught in some nasty weather outdoors? Us too. These dry packs will keep all your valuables (including electronics and paper products) bone-dry. The Earth Pak also comes in vibrant colors so it’s easy to spot if you leave it behind. These things are meant to last forever, so they make for a great gift.
Suaoki LED Camping Lantern
This lantern charges with both USB and solar, and, like many other items on our list, is extremely affordable. With convenient, compact storage and the dual charging system, you won’t find better bang for your buck in a camping lantern.
