2012 Camping Life Gear Guide
Whether you’re packing for a day hike or a full-family camping excursion, going with the proper gear is a fail-safe insurance policy to make sure you and your crew have fun no matter what Mother Nature brings. If weight isn’t a factor, indulge yourself with convenient cooking equipment, a comfortable chair and a thick, soft sleeping bag atop a lofty mattress. If you’re looking to travel lightly, our Gear Guide also contains recommendations to stay cozy and warm with less weight and bulk. And, when weather or terrain unexpectedly changes, packing the right just-in-case gear can make the shifting conditions a fun challenge, rather than a downer.
Our editors have selected gear that includes cooking and kitchen equipment, lighting, tents, sleeping gear and furniture. Click the links below to start browsing through the Gear Guide. We hope our advice and recommendations will save you time and effort, so you can spend more time researching your next destinations and go knowing you’re properly prepared. And, be sure to check out the June 2012 issue of Camping Life for even more great product recommendations, including canoes, kayaks, hiking footwear and day packs.
Get out there, and enjoy!
