Odds and ends for Your Camping Gear


weird camping gear

Whether you are camping in the great outdoors, or just in a tent in the woods, there are all sorts of weird camping gear you might want to bring along on your next outdoor adventure. You can find all sorts of gizmos to help keep you and your companions dry, such as camping water filters, lightweight sleeping bags, and insect repellant spray. If you don’t want to buy brand new equipment, you can also improvise by bringing along items from your home. For instance, if you have an old water filter in your refrigerator-that has stopped working, why not use it to purify water in a camping spot?

Camping Stove Top Camp stovetop kits are an essential part of any good camping trip since they allow you to prepare meals while you are sitting at the campfire, away from the fire. Simply add mosquito repellant tablets to the stove, and camp stovetop kits should deter mosquitoes within a certain distance. These great little items work especially well if you place them within the mosquito tunnel made by your camp stove. Solar fuel stoves work even better depending on the strength of your sun’s rays.

Cold Weather Sleeping Bag A cold weather sleeping bag is an essential piece of camping gear that should be a part of every camper’s list. In fact, I would say that this is the single most important piece of equipment for anyone who wants to go camping. If you are going to spend time in the cold, you will want to make sure that you are warm. A sleeping bag is a perfect way to do this. There are a variety of different kinds of sleeping bags, so before you buy anything, you need to think about what kind of experience you are willing to handle.

Bluetooth Speaker This is one of those must-haves when it comes to gore cameras. While it is true that a Bluetooth speaker may sound like a good idea, it may not actually be useful on many camping trips. Some people actually carry a Bluetooth speaker around with them. Others find that their Bluetooth speaker doubles as a small radio. These speakers are great to have in your kit, but they are often overloaded for long camping trips. If you really want to be prepared, invest in a much more robust speaker, such as a Bluetooth monophonic or better.

A Much Ado

Portable Camping Dog Bags Another great outdoor camping gear item that can come in very handy is a portable camping dog carrier. Many people who go hiking and camping will attest to how helpful having a dog can be. A dog will keep you both safe and happy (and relaxed). A dog carrier will help keep your pooch close by and out of the way, which is important when you are hiking long distances.

Camp Stove and Waterproof Lighter Have a good solid camp stove at your disposal is essential if you are going to be spending a lot of time in the outdoors. There are many different kinds of stoves and some are better than others. A waterproof lighter is an excellent tool to have in your kit. Many times having the right tools can make all the difference when you are outdoors. Whether you are looking for a small camp stove to boil water for your meals, or a larger, full-featured stove to cook your dinner over, a waterproof lighter is a great stocking stuffer.

Final Words

Walkie Talkies and Cell Phone Just think about the fun you could have talking to the wild animals and other wildlife for hours! Another of the great outdoors stocking stuffers is a set of walkie-talkies and a cell phone. Many people have a great deal of fun using these two items for their camping gadgets. If you are really into the wilderness or plan on going places where you may not be able to get cell phone reception, make sure you have walkie-talkies with you.

Sleeping Bag or Bedding Staying warm during the cold winter months is important to any camper. Buying a sleeping bag that is well-liked and trusted by other campers will help ensure a warm and comfortable night’s sleep for you and your family. A quality sleeping bag will keep you warm and cozy for hours, allowing you to spend more time in the great outdoors. Quality down sleeping bags is a great way to stay warm during the winter months.
