The Top Gadgets You Shouldn't Camp Without October 08 2014

Whether you are a hardcore survivalist or just looking for some fresh air on the weekend, it never hurts to have some modern conveniences to help make camping safer and more pleasant. Here are some neat tools and technologies to consider the next time you venture to the great outdoors.

NEMO Helio Pressure Shower
Although camp showers have been around for some years, none are as handy or high-end as NEMO’s Helio Pressure Shower. It has never been easier to maintain your hygiene and feel refreshed in the middle of nowhere. Unlike alternative models – which you just hang overhead to dribble water – the 11-liter Helio features an attached foot pump that allows you to create your own desired pressure for a five to seven minutes minute stream via the convenient handheld nozzle. You can even enjoy a rare hot shower by letting it warm in the sun! Helio also works great for cleaning other things too.

REI Incamp Insulated Airpad
Few things are rougher than trying to sleep outdoors, and conventional sleeping bags or airbeds do not make it that much easier. Most require strenuous effort to blow up, and even those with self-inflators can take time. The Incamp Insulated Airpad by REI resolves this problem by offering both supreme comfort and easy set up. Just open the bottom valve at the head, then pump manually for quick and easy inflation. The three-inch pad is plushy and comfortable, and includes an integrated pillow, cutting-edge insulation for warmth, and side buckles for clipping it to another pad.

BioLite Camp Stove / Portable Grill
Starting a fire is integral to any camping experience. Now you can cook food, get warm, and even reduce your carbon footprint with the BioLite Camp Stove. Just fill its chamber with the usual natural tinder – twigs, pine cones, wood pellets, etc – and light them up for an easy and safe way to cook. Integrated circulation creates clean combustion and enough heat to boil a liter of water in less than five minutes. You can connect the Camp Stove with BioLite's Portable Grill to cook up to four burgers or six sausages you’re your choice of low, medium, or high temperature zones.
