    3. A pair of ultra-bright LED lanterns for you and your camping buddy, so no one will get lost or left behind.

    4. An ultra-lightweight foldable table that'll be easy to carry to the campsite and sturdy enough to use for prep and serving.

    8. A giant backpack with compartments for everything you'll need (or think you could need) on your next camping adventure.

    9. A multifunction 10-in-1 tool set that'll likely save the day, whether you need a sharp knife to cut meat with or a small axe to gather firewood.

    11. A packable, inflatable sleeping pad you can tuck into your sleeping bag for a better night's sleep than you knew you could have while camping.

    12. A performance cooler that'll withstand all nature and whatever its inhabitants throw at it. It'll keep ice frozen for up to five days.

    14. A pair of binoculars that prevent scratches and smudges and will give you a 170 degree wide-angle view of all nature has to offer.

    15. A comprehensive first-aid kit to save you and your crew from having to head back early due to minor injuries.

    16. A foldable water bottle that'll keep you hydrated...and when the water's out, can be rolled and packed away as if it wasn't just holding a liter of water.

    17. A rain jacket with a hood to keep you dry. No soggy campers allowed.

    23. A personal water filter straw that'll help keep you hydrated and prevent exposure to most waterborne diseases, no matter what kind of body of water you're near.

    24. A pack of fire starters because twisting two sticks together should be left to the scouts.

    29. An 8-cup coffee pot set with a percolator for making cups of joe in the great outdoors. What's better than waking up to the smell of coffee and pine?

    30. An electric space heater that'll be the perfect alternative if you're hesitant to light and safely maintain and campfire in the woods.

    31. A heavy-duty camp grill you can use to crate an open flame so you can (safely) get your grill on outdoors.
