First things first, you need a tent!

Suite Dream 4-Person Tent / Via

Camping that isn't cramping. In our humble opinion, the industry’s standard definition of a 2 & 4 person tent footprint is too damn small. For Freecountry Camping, we think that’s cramping, not camping. We’re happy to introduce an upgrade to your standard room. Everyone needs plenty of elbow room and headspace, especially if you’re logging some tent time in the rain. Our Suite Dream series provides unprecedented roominess for you, your friends and all your stuff!

Hydration is an imperative for survival!

HydroFlask / Via

HydroFlasks are designed with professional-grade stainless steel and TempShield™ double wall insulation, so your water stays ice cold for up to 24 hours or piping hot up to 12, whether you’re enjoying a morning play date at the park or an afternoon hike in the backcountry.

If you're deep in the mountains, you're going to need one of these!

MINI Water Filtration System / Via

The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is rated to 0.1 micron absolute, weighs only 2 ounces, and filters up to 100,000 gallons! This award-winning system is reliable and easy to use. The MINI can be attached to the included collapsible drinking pouch, inline on a hydration pack, on a standard soda bottle, or simply use the included drinking straw to drink directly from the water source.

BattlBox Survival Gear is essential to brave the elements.
