Top 37 Gifts for Campers

1. YETI Dog Bowl

Our animals need special treatment too. Use this YETI dog bowl to keep your pet’s water cold! 

Specifications

  • Dependable 
  • Holds 8 cups (64 ounces) of food, perfect for kibble, water, or dry food
  • 18/8 stainless steel
  • The nonslip rim on the bottom of the bowl 
  • Dishwasher safe

Sample Customer Review…I chose this model because I wanted to have something that my Doberman can grow into and not something that would need to be replaced. Once I opened up the box I knew I made the right decision. The bottom rubber grommet is infused into the bottom and is not removable. That solves one of the main issues others had with other models. The second major issue it solves is this will not rust, ever. The bowl is heavy and flat on the bottom and my dog will have a very difficult time trying to knock it over. The moral of the story, spend more, get more. I may have spent twice as much, but I’ll never buy another dog bowl again, ever. Done.

2. YETI Rambler Mug

Yeti’s stackable 14 oz. mug can be purchased in 13 colors and it keeps your coffee hot until you are ready for that first sip.

Specifications

  • Has a triple grip handle 
  • Duracoat color
  • Double-wall vacuum insulation
  • No sweat design

Sample Customer Review… I purchased this mug to use at home. It seemed like I was forever reheating my coffee or chai tea in the microwave with my other mugs. This Yeti keeps my beverage nice and hot! No reheating needed at all. It has a smooth, classy look and is easily cleaned. I love the copper color I chose since it goes with the color scheme in my kitchen. Yeti has an outstanding reputation for all its products … Gorgeous heavy-duty mug. Very good color. Five-year warranty. Dishwasher safe. I love it.

No products found.

These socks are the best gift for the camping enthusiasts you know. They make a perfect stocking stuffer!

Specifications

  • The design features a camping scene with a starry sky, and the bottom of the socks has a funny phrase: “I’d Rather Be Camping.”
  • One size fits most
  • Made of 5% elastic, 10% spandex, and 85% cotton

Sample Customer Review… These socks are adorable. They are warm, so they are actually good for camping too! I thought when I bought them, they might be style over substance, but I was wrong. They are very good quality and they feel like they will last a while. The camping images are crisp and the colors bold. They are also very gender-neutral. Overall, a nice choice for yourself or as a gift.

4. Double Hammock 

Ever just want to layout under the trees? Invest in this lightweight parachute portable hammock.

Specifications

  • Lightweight
  • 400-pound capacity
  • Easy cleanup, roll up your hammock in its attached pocket 
  • All weatherproof 
  • Easy setup
  • Room for two
  • Nylon fabric is durable and breathable 
  • Lifetime warranty 

Sample Customer Review… We purchased the teal and red double hammock. Originally we were considering an “eno,” but after seeing the price difference and the awesome reviews and customer question responses we decided to give “legit camping” a try. I am so happy we did. We mostly used it to sit by our campfire and one backpacking night we even slept in it together. Combined as a couple, we’re probably 360 lbs. and the hammock held up fine. Super easy to assemble/hang up. Easy to pack back up too. Extremely satisfied!

5. Towel Set

Show off your love for camping with this cute towel set. 

Specifications

  • 100% Cotton
  • Set of two 
  • The options are: “Happy Camper, I Heart Camping, or LIFE is GOOD in the WOODS” sayings 
  • Measurements 18 inches x 28 inches
  • Machine wash cold, tumble dry low

Sample Customer Review… These are so nice! The graphics are clear on the towels and I love the images. They are larger than I anticipated which is good. I guess I thought they would be tiny tea towel sized but I was pleasantly surprised they were bigger. The color is a nice tea-stained burlap-like look. They would fit in well with the trendy farmhouse looks. They will be perfect for hanging on the oven handle in our RV. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy them as a gift … Love these towels. Mine are strictly decorative. Colors go beautifully with my decor. Love the wording and pics on them.

6. Titanium Pot 

This long-lasting pot is perfect for cooking at camp. 

Specifications

  • Material: Titanium 
  • Capacity: 19.4oz (550ml)
  • Weight: Pot with lid 2.6 oz (72g) Pot only: 1.9 oz (54g)
  • Dimension: 3 3/4″ (95mm)
  • Designed by TOAKS in California
  • Made in China
  • The lid has a lockable grip
  • Includes a storage bag

Sample Customer Review… Because I drink as much coffee on the trail as I do boil noodles and whatnot, I was torn between the 450 and 550 ml. However, I decided to go with the 550 ml and I am glad I did! Perfect as a coffee mug and holds enough water for your two serving mountain house meals (or whatever you need to boil on the trail). The “light” model feels a bit thin at first touch but still holds up just as strong as my older model Toaks. I would maybe recommend using a towel or handkerchief when removing from your stove as the handles on the cup and lid may have heated up, however, the handles cool down rather quickly! Overall, I search for multiple purposes for my gear, and this is no exception. Highly recommend it, especially for all you “ounce counters” out there!

7. LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

Use this for when you need water!

Specifications

  • Provides 792 gallons (3,000 liters) of safe drinking water 
  • There is no expiration date, it can be stored forever even after use
  • Removes 99.9% of protozoa and 99.9999% of bacteria (including e-Coli)

Sample Customer Review… This thing is no joke! I took it backpacking on Maine’s Bigelow range. When I ran out of the water I brought, I was A-ok with this. Just bring a wide mouth bottle to fill with the water you find. On top of one of the lower peaks, I drank from the most disgusting-looking crevice filled with brown scum. I thought, this is going to be safe, but taste horrid. Wrong. Tasted like the freshest spring water. Better than any tap. I’m from Maine, and I’ve tasted plenty of water right from mountain springs, so take my word. One caution: it can be a little challenging to start. You have to prove it by soaking. If it still doesn’t work, blow into it a bit.

8. Carhartt Knit Beanie

Need a new hat that will keep you warm? Carhartt’s Knit cuffed beanie is a perfect gift for anyone! 

Specifications

  • 100% Acrylic
  • Made in the USA
  • No Closure closure
  • Hand Wash Only
  • 100% acrylic, stretchable rib-knit fabric
  • Carhartt label is sewn on front

Sample Customer Review… Got this just in time for single digits temps that will be hitting the East coast this January 2018. The weather has been very cold here this winter. I work the third shift and of course nighttime is the coldest time. This keeps my bald head warm until the car warms up. I used to always wear ball caps, but they were not cutting it with this colder than normal weather. Best money spent in a good while. Feels soft against my skin and was available in many different colors. The price was right too. Would buy it again and maybe might get a different color one soon. I’ll bring out the ball caps in spring, until then this is my head’s best friend.

 9. HotHands Body & Hand Warmers

No products found.

Quickly access heat by using some of these HotHands Body & Hand Warmers. Perfect for on the go, or sitting outside. 

Specifications

  • SAFE, NATURAL LONG-LASTING HEAT
  • Odorless, Disposable, Single-Use Item
  • Do Not Apply Directly to The Skin
  • TSA Approved
  • Made in the USA
  • To activate: Remove warmer from the package and shake to activate
  • Warmer heats up in 15-30 minutes
  • 10 Pads per pack 
  • Provides up to 18 hours of warmth

Sample Customer Review… Took these on a wilderness medicine trip where we have an “unexpected night out” as in pack for a day hike but stay the night. The temperature got down to the ’30s with lots of wind in the California mountains and by the nature of the exercise, we had no sleeping bag or tent. Huddled under a makeshift shelter made of a mylar emergency blanket, these hot hand warmers were pretty crucial to our “survival.” (ie. we were able to make it through the night without bailing on the exercise and going into the “tap-out” tent.) Took about 15 minutes to warm up once the package was opened. I opened one up at 5 pm and kept it in my pocket next to my stomach, and it was still hot (almost burning) at around midnight. I only opened one at a time so I was still cold everywhere outside of the warmer but if I had multiple going in different pockets I would have been very comfortable and toasty. These warmers are about the size of the palm of my hand.

10. LED Headlamp Flashlight

For handy hands-free light, as you walk, this GearLight LED Headlamp is a lifesaver.

Specifications

  • Bright and long-lasting led lights
  • Light and Comfortable
  • Weather and Shock Resistant
  • Rotatable attachment 
  • Includes user manual, warranty card 

Sample Customer Review… My 3-year-old always asks to play with my headlamp so I figured id buy him his own. I didn’t expect much out of these for the price, but I was blown away when I put batteries in. These lights are incredibly bright and lightweight. The light offers low, medium, high and strobe for the white LED and turns on with low mode first which I really like. The red LEDs offer “on”, SOS, and strobe. Build quality seems solid. The band is comfortable and I was able to adjust it small enough for my son as well as myself. The red LEDs are a great extra feature and are very bright as well. I haven’t been able to test battery life yet, but I’m sure it’s decent. Will definitely look for more lights from this company.

11. Portable Charger

A portable charger is an essential item to be on your camping list. It is convenient if you need to have a quick charge. 

Specifications

  • High Capacity
  • Weighs 12.5 oz
  • High-Speed Charging
  • Recharges in 10 hours, charging time might take up to 20 hours
  • High-quality LG battery cells
  • Includes portable Charger, travel bag, user guide, micro USB cable, and a lightning cable for Apple products

Sample Customer Review… I’ve had this for eight or nine months now. It was purchased mainly to keep my phone and iPod charged while skiing in frigid temps. In hindsight, I should have gone with the single port because it takes up less space and isn’t as heavy, but I am still happy with my purchase. Ended up having a crazy awesome winter skiing for weeks at a time (thank you previous employer for firing me!!!) and I did not have to recharge this during the weeks I was gone. That in and of itself sold me. However, a couple of weeks ago something happened that made me want to write a review. I was an idiot and accidentally left it sitting on a table outside for a couple of days and it rained quite a bit during that period. It definitely, without a doubt, got pretty wet. I nearly cried thinking it was doomed and would never work again. But ya know… it still had battery power. I couldn’t believe it. I plugged my phone into it, it started charging my phone. And that is why I will be an Anker customer for life. Takes a licking, keeps on ticking. Thank you, Anker, for making such great quality products instead of cheap garbage that doesn’t last. 10/10 – would recommend it to everyone who will listen.

12. Pocket Knife

You never know when you’re going to use a pocket knife. Keep it with you wherever you travel. 

Specifications

  • Measurements: 6x1x1 inches
  • Weight: 22.68 grams 
  • The handle is made of glass-filled nylon

Sample Customer Review… This knife is awesome. It flips out fast and there is absolutely zero “wiggle” from the blade the handle when it’s opened. Very sturdy. This was my first Kershaw. In fact, I like this Brawler so much that I bought a “Kershaw 1555TI Cryo SpeedSafe Folding Knife” about a week later. I ended up giving the brawler to my girlfriend so she has a handy blade to open boxes or a great defensive weapon if she needs it, heaven forbid. I kept the Cryo because of the super slim handle which I prefer in my pocket. The brawler is thicker and she has a purse for it. I love both of them though. This knife is tough, sharp as hell, opens fast, and feels awesome in your hand. I highly recommend it. I have collected many different knives over the years and Kershaw is quickly becoming my favorite brand.

13. Lodge Cast Iron Skillet 

Love cooking? This pre-seasoned skillet is perfect for your campfire needs! It is available in a variety of sizes to suit your cooking desires. 

Specifications

  • 12 cast iron skillet 
  • 12-inch diameter and is 2 inches deep 
  • Pre-seasoned skillet
  • Made in the USA

Sample Customer Review… Lodge remains on the top of the cast iron game. This 12″ skillet is heavy with no false rim that gives the appearance that the sides and bottom are thicker than they are. The skillet has an even but coarse surface which is perfect for the seasoning to build upon and won’t come off when using a steel spatula. (Btw: years ago I bought a milled/super smooth skillet and never again). The bottom of the Lodge skillet is perfectly flat with no annoying rim to hang up on a burner grate and allows for good contact with flat cooktops. The skillet holds a very even cooking heat at all temperatures. The skillet comes pre-seasoned, however, I hit the skillet with a coat of flax-seed oil and baked it on in a 425 oven for a couple of hours. Kudos to Lodge for kicking out one of the best performing skillets out there.

14. Coleman Tent 

A tent is a perfect way to start your journey in the camping world! This tent is a great size to keep you protected from the elements.

Specifications

  • Polyester taffeta 75 denier flysheet
  • Imported
  • Weatherproof
  • Wind and rain tested: Strong frame withstands 35+ mph winds
  • Great ventilation
  • Includes an E-port for easy access to electrical power inside
  • Easy setup, takes about 10 minutes

Sample Customer Review… Love this tent! We’re not big “outdoors” people, I needed a tent that’s easy to set up and comfortably fits a queen-size air mattress…this tent exceeded my expectations! The last time I set up a tent was in the ’80s (and the tent was from the ’60s)…this is a dream to set up. I put the tent together in our backyard by myself and inflated the air mattress within the tent. I also hung a little LED lantern from the center inside the tent. We had some extra room along the side of the mattress, but I wouldn’t recommend this tent for more than two adults. Enjoyed our night under the stars with one adult, one 9-year old and a French Bulldog. Breaking everything down was a breeze too!

15. Complete Grill Accessories Kit

Specifications

  • Includes spatula, tongs, fork, knife, grill brush, 8 corn holders, silicone basting brush, 4 kabob skewers, aluminum case, and a cooler bag
  • Comes in an aluminum storage case
  • Made with stainless steel
  • Dishwasher safe

Sample Customer Review… This was a gift for my husband for fathers day. The tools are super sturdy (we use them at least 3 times a week) and easy to clean. The spatula is sharp so you need to be careful when cleaning it. The poker things that go on an ear of corn are also sturdy, as in they didn’t bend when inserting them. Everything you need and more comes in this kit and it included a sturdy case for storage and a small cooler (about the size of a lunch box). This was a win for fathers day! Def recommend it to anyone who likes to grill. It is a bargain compared to anything that you get at Walmart. I would 100% buy this kit again (even though you won’t need to for many years)!

16. Coleman Camping Stove Cooking Grill

This propane cooking stove is perfect for cooking meals while you are away at camp! 

Specifications

  • Wind Block panels help shield burners from wind 
  • Adjusts for pan sizes
  • PerfectHeat technology 
  • Large enough for one 12” and one 10” pan
  • Room to stow the griddle

Sample Customer Review… Bought this on a Friday for a last-minute camping trip starting Saturday. Arrived as described before we left. Didn’t open the box until we got to our site. Took me 3 minutes to unbox, screw in the gas line (which was zip-tied to the grill for shipping stability), then the small propane tank. Lit with the first touch of lighter flame. Provided us with fresh perked coffee all trip. Easy to put up, easy to clean, and store away again. Absolutely no complaints.

17. Hydro Flask Water Bottle

Specifications

  • Wide Mouth Flex Cap
  • Has double-wall vacuum insulated technology
  • Will remain hot up to 6 hours, cold up to 24 Hours
  • C BPA-free plastics
  • 18/8 stainless steel food-grade stainless steel
  • Slip-free bottle 
  • Fits most backcountry water filters

Sample Customer Review… I needed a new Hydro Flask water bottle for use at home and this works perfectly. I love the cobalt blue color. The new lid style with a handle also works really well. Black lid and blue body. Black and blue colors are my favorite. The size of this water flask is just right. Refill the 32-ounce water flask four times each day and I am drinking a gallon of water each day. Very healthy and helpful. The water flask is very solid and is very easy to keep clean and wash each day for health reasons. I love the wide mouth on this water flask. Being stainless steel the water inside stays very chilled all day and night long till I take another drink. I have found no problems at all with this 32 ounce Hydro Flask. In the future, I plan on making more purchases.

18. Mini Pocket Blanket

Get cold easily? Need a handy blanket to take wherever you go? This pocket blanket is just the thing you need to keep warm at all times!

Specifications

  • Ripstop Nylon and Polyester
  • Made in the USA or Imported
  • When compact 3x2x1 inch, 38 Gram design
  • 44×28 inch (110x70cm) when unfolded
  • Water-resistant 
  • Added key loop and storage pouch for easy carrying and use 
  • Big enough for 1 person to relax or 2 to sit side by side

Sample Customer Review… I highly recommend this product to anyone who spends time outdoors. The design and quality are outstanding, and there are so many uses for this product that it is simply indispensable (I’ve used it as a blanket, rain gear cover, car seat cover, etc.). Whether you are an avid camper/hiker/outdoor person or a casual walker, this is a perfect item to own. I have the smaller size for personal use, which I also love, but the larger version is ideal for 2 or 3 people. I would suggest ordering both sizes.

 19. Collapsible Tub

Specifications

  • BPA Free
  • Pop-up to open collapses to flat for space-saving
  • Expanded size: 14.6 x 12.6 x 5.7(h) inches and its height just 1.8 inches after folds
  • Capacity: 9.45L (2.5 Gallon)
  • Perfect for icing beverages, washing dishes, and also outdoor uses, such as camping, BBQ, and campsite clean-up.
  • Non-slip design 
  • Hanging hole for easy hanging on the wall

Sample Customer Review… This tub is exactly what I wanted – it fits within my sink perfectly, and is deep enough to handle nearly all dishes. It is a little hard to expand and collapse, but that is getting easier with use. In the beginning, I had to manhandle it to expand/collapse, now I can do it without struggle. I don’t think of this as a downside, though: you want to tub to have good structural integrity. The thickness of the walls is what contributed to the initial struggle, but I think the thickness will also mean it is useable without leaks for a very long time.

20. Cast Iron Scraper

This is the perfect tool to help clean off the food on your skillet while camping!

Specifications

  • Comes in a pack of two
  • Dishwasher safe

Sample Customer Review… If part of the charm of cooking with your cast iron pan is the plastic-free experience, I have bad news. But if you have a cast-iron pan and actually use it, then this scraper is a no-brainer addition to your arsenal for culinary clean-up. I had just been using a wet, semi-soapy sponge in the sink to clean my pan because I hated using so many paper towels, or getting a cloth rag so soaked with whatever mess was in the pan. The seasoning was starting to flake, however, so I had the idea for a silicone scraper of some kind to use for cleaning my cast iron pan. That’s when I stumbled upon these, made exactly for my purpose. Credit to Lodge, these are sturdy; of the two, I started using the red one, and I could see it lasting nearly as long as the pan itself. But they are very much hard plastic. Overall tho’, I’m impressed.

21. Coleman Cooler

Are you going on a road trip? This cooler is great for taking food and drinks to go. It is also perfect for BBQs, family camping trips, parties. 

Specifications

  • Insulated lid and wall insulation to keeps ice in temperatures up to 90°F for 5 days
  • Holds Up to 100 Cans
  • You can sit on top of the lid 
  • Cup Holders in the lid 
  • Comfort handles for easy carrying

Sample Customer Review… 2 years after regular use in summer and tailgating and this thing has been a champ. NO issues what so ever including the hinges I was suspect about. They have held well and show no signs of wear. We haven’t abused this cooler but also have not “baby-d” it either and it held up to it all. Keeps ice for 2 days no problem and has been fantastic for a weekend trip. $300 for a Yeti if you plan to be in the bush for a week. If not, like most of us, this MADE IN USA cooler has been nothing but great. Highly recommend

22. Marshmallow Roasting Sticks Kit

Time for smores at your camp? Pull out these colorful marshmallow sticks for everyone to enjoy their favorite camp snack.

Specifications

  • Colors range from Purple, Red, Blue, Green, and Orange.
  • Lifetime manufacturer warranty 
  • Extendable to 34 inches
  • Includes “15 Easy Roasting Recipes” E-book
  • Includes 10 free bamboo sticks 

Sample Customer Review… Yay – well-made campfire roasting sticks. Quality, at least from first impressions, is above average. The prongs are nice and sturdy. Extends out to a good length. The rotate-with-your-thumb feature is cute but marginally useful. The big unknown is whether or not these will last a decent amount of time. Our hope is, based on first impressions, that they will. They came nicely packaged in their own zippered etui. So far, am very happy with my purchase.

23. Bluetooth Speaker

Who loves to listen to music or your favorite podcast wherever you go? This speaker is not only portable, but it has 20 hours of battery life. 

Specifications

  • Stereo sound and enhanced bass
  • Higher Volume More Bass 
  • Bluetooth compatible 
  • Waterproof or spill-proof 
  • Portable, easy to take anywhere you go
  • Rechargeable battery 

Sample Customer Review… Speaker is well made and sounds great. It’s a pretty nice size, not too big or small and it gets fairly loud. I have been strapping it to my backpack with a carabiner and riding around on my bike/skateboard with it. I can hear it pretty clear without having to put it at full volume, however, I ride with it all the way up. Worked great at the beach, but the sand did get stuck in it. I have dropped the unit a few times now since I have owned it. It’s seen a lot of traveling and it’s held up really well. Besides the cosmetic damage I have caused, it still works great. Battery life is great, I have yet to have it die on me, so it always gets me through the day.

24. LED Lantern

Need light after dark? This lantern is the perfect way to light up your night. Perfect for sitting outside playing games or sitting with friends or family. 

Specifications

  • The led light can last up to 50 days using its timer option 
  • Requires 2 x AA Batteries (Not Included)
  • Flickering candle effect
  • Self-timer 
  • Tempered glass panels for all-weather temperatures 
  • 1-year quality guarantee 

Sample Customer Review… These lanterns with their flickering flames are beautiful. Because our church was closed due to Covid, we did not put out our regular Christmas decor. Our services are broadcast on Facebook and zoom, so we simplified by just decorating our choir rail that can be seen in the broadcast. We alternated the lanterns with poinsettias, and it made a beautiful backdrop. (We added ribbons to the top of each lantern) I recommend these lanterns for any decorative use. The timer function comes in handy if you want them to light for a certain time period each day. Definitely a satisfied customer.

25. Insulated Food Jar

This jar keeps your food hot or cold for up to 15 hours. Perfect for taking food on the go!

Specifications

  • Double vacuum insulation 
  • Made of stainless steel 
  • Wide mouth opening
  • Leakproof lid 
  • Lifetime warranty 

Sample Customer Review… After I grind whole coffee beans for making a pot, I put the leftover ground beans into this Vacuum food jar. Ground beans keep best if stored at an even (room) temp in a sealed container where they are not exposed to air. This jar keeps them so well that when I open the container even a couple of weeks later, the ground beans still smell as they did when they were freshly ground … Great investment. My girls love being able to take hot foods for lunch and the food is still hot when lunchtime rolls around… it even kept their sushi nice and cold as well…

26. Open Fire Pop Gift Set

Popcorn is a gift that everyone loves. Enjoy a snack around your campfire with this Open Fire Pop Gift Set. 

Specifications

  • Includes an open fire popper, 5 popping kits, 4 samplers, and 4 disposable bowls
  • Makes 4 quarts of popcorn
  • Time: 4-5 minutes
  • Easy cleanup 
  • No mess 
  • Lightweight and perfect for outdoor use

Sample Customer Review… I’ve had a stovetop popper for years and love it. It makes the best popcorn. The outdoor/camping version is just as good. Being able to make great popcorn over a campfire is great. Its size is pretty good for carrying on your trip, makes a decent amount of popcorn, (although for a whole pack of Scouts it could be bigger, like the home version), but it makes it so quickly, it is easy to make batch after batch. Thumbs up! … I bought this for a camping trip and couldn’t be happier. Cooks enough popcorn for 5 people. Easy to cook with, empty, and clean. Great flavor of the supplied packets.

27. Backpack Cooler Chair

This cool device has three different functions! It works as a backpack, cooler, and chair, which is perfect for making camping more simple.

Specifications

  • Metal frame
  • Foldable
  • Fabric is made of polyester

Sample Customer Review… This little chair is the coolest little invention, well made and sturdy. I took this out to my son’s soccer game last weekend and received tons of compliments. I was able to fit 3 large (1 liter) bottles in the cooler bag section with plenty of room for another if need be. I have a 4-year old that comes to the field with me so we always end up bringing my chair, snacks, drinks, toys (everything but my kitchen sink) and I hate having to carry all of this stuff… I wish I would’ve known about this chair 4 years ago!

28. Solar Shower

Enjoy a warm shower generated by your very own solar-powered shower! Environmentally friendly and easy to use. 

Specifications

  • 5-gallon outdoor solar shower bag
  • Has a reflector panel and insulator panel
  • Easy to use on and off showerhead switch
  • Side pocket for essential items
  • Water gauge to check the temperature 
  • Velcro straps for washcloths
  • Weight: 1 pound, 4 ounces

Sample Customer Review… Got wife to enjoy camping even more, now that we can clean up on a long weekend. Glad I went with the 5g model. Was perfect volume for 2 showers, and a little leftover to rinse other stuff off. Also useful for rinsing dishes. Was able to heat up to 110 deg easily on an unusually warm spring afternoon (temps hit high 80’s). Seems like decent materials that will last with care. Like a screw-on cap, no risk of spilling when transporting. Paired this with an inexpensive pop-up changing/shower booth and bamboo floor and shower mat I found on Amazon.

  • Ergonomic handle for easy refilling
  • On/off lever to prevent leaks
  • Air mesh back panel for a comfortable feel

Sample Customer Review… Bought this for my dad. He rides motocross grass races, enduro riding and he loves it says it the perfect size to fit under the chest protector comfortably. Lightweight, breathable, and of great quality. His last one, a very very similar older model lasted around 6-7 years with tons of excessive use. Camelbak makes a great quality product. Thank you for making a product so reliable and durable. Good job! Happy customer here. I wouldn’t buy a hydration pack from any other company!

Review from Camelbak

30. Camping Chair

This camping chair’s easy-to-fold design and comfortable mesh netting make it a thoughtful gift for friends on the go. Plus, it comes in three colors!

Specifications

  • Material: Polyester
  • Measurements: 12.02×18.9×27.95 inches 
  • Maximum weight: 300 pounds 
  • Item weight: 2.1 pounds 

Sample Customer Review… This is one of the best hiking purchases I have made. I have a blown-out disc in my back and have struggled with finding places to rest when hiking when sciatica kicks in while hiking. This chair fixes this. It is so lightweight I don’t even notice it in my pack (weighs just a bit more than a 20oz bottle of water) and is small enough to not take up excessive room. Setting it up takes maybe 1-2 minutes, and that includes getting it out of my pack. And yes, it is comfortable. I weigh ~190 lbs and it holds me just fine.

31. Sleeping Bag

Specifications

  • 100% polyester lining
  • Single size: 29.5 by 86.6 inches
  • Weight:4 pounds
  • Includes a compression sack, strap 
  • Easy to carry, lightweight 
  • Temperature Rating 32-77 Fahrenheit
  • Waterproof

Sample Customer Review… 40 degrees and rainy, I zipped this baby up entirely and became a cocoon. Now I didn’t cover my head properly so I was pretty cold there, but I was dressed for the occasion and this bag kept me pretty comfy. It packed up nicely when it arrived, and it packed up nicely again when I had to leave, all I can ask for a sleeping bag for a novice camper who was sleeping in his tent for the first time. It’s not rated for below freezing, but if you are doing fall camping this should suffice to bar you bring proper layers to keep you warm.

Specifications

  • Easy inflation, no air pumps are required

  • Anti deflation technology

Sample Customer Review… I purchased these air loungers for a concert and I easily got 50 compliments. People were so jealous of how comfortable we looked and felt. I then packed my two air loungers for a trip to Puerto Rico they fit easily inside my carry-on. When I got to the beach they blew up within five seconds and I was comfortable for hours. They are waterproof and I’ve never been more comfortable laying on a beach in my life. Highly recommend.

34. Travel Pillow

This travel pillow is the best gift for long road trips or quick pit stops to take a nap. This pillow is convenient to keep in your car or camper. 

Specifications

  • 100% Polyester
  • Made in the USA
  • 12-ounce compressible travel pillow 
  • The foam inside expands to a 4-inch thick pillow for head, neck, and back support 
  • Compact design 
  • The outside material is a brushed polyester cover
  • Measurements: 16 x 23 x 4 inches
  • Before use, shake and fluff to restore loft
  • Machine washable

Sample Customer Review… These pillows are amazing! The first thing you must do after you get it in the mail is wash and dry it (it fluffs the pillow up substantially). The outer material is so soft and comfortable and the inside has just the right amount of cushion. The fill inside the pillow is made up of bits of foam which seems weird but is actually really comfortable and honestly, after a long & hard day of hiking, there’s nothing better than having a pillow to sleep on. We took these (size small) on several multi-day backpacking trips so far and they are reasonably lightweight and fit well when packed up with the rest of our gear. It definitely beats using rolled-up clothing or inflatable pillows. The pillow packs down into a small enough roll (it takes some practice to get it down) which is great when you’re short on space. It does take a little while and/or fluffing to get the pillow back into shape after it’s unrolled so it’s typically one of the first things I take out of my bag and unroll after setting up the tent. We’ve been taking these on plane flights too and they’ve worked great (I’d say they’re similar in size to the pillows you might get on a plane but much fluffier).

  • Travel game, small and compact

Sample Customer Review… My daughter said this was “The best thing about camp. everyone loved it. no one else had one and people kept coming up to me and asking me for a new conversation starter…” We have even used it at home and in the car. It’s a great way to get to know people you don’t know and an even better way to get to know people you think you do know. It’s about 150 questions on about as many cards that are on a carabiner. Questions like, Do you believe in ghosts? What do you want to be when you grow up? What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

37. Hiking Boot

This lightweight hiking boot is waterproof and comfortable for long hikes.

Specifications

  • 100% Imported Leather 
  • Synthetic sole
  • Padded collar and tongue
  • Longwearing rubber outsole with traction treads
  • Removable insole

Sample Customer Review… I love hiking boots. And I searched for a long time to find just the right ones for a good price. These are perfect! Amazon suggested 8.5 for my size, so I tried that and they fit perfectly! They are comfortable, sturdy, of great quality, and arrived on time in perfect condition. Still working to stiff boot but that is normal. My feet get sore quickly due to the lack of an arch on one foot. But with these, my feet don’t hurt much after long wear which is great. I highly recommend this boot. I wear them like everyday shoes since I have weak ankles and they give amazing support.
