    1. A deluxe eight-person tent so luxurious, it's basically a house. But a house one person could set up in less than an hour, so it might in fact be better than a house.

    Promising review: "I grew up camping in a canvas tent and this is so much better! Easy to setup and quick to take down. It poured the first night we used it and it was great not having to worry about water getting in. 10/10 would recommend!" —Andrew1985

    Price: $699.99

    2. A bottle of water shield spray because there's nothing like the sheer power of being able to waterproof things. Your boots, jacket, tent, and more will thank you.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "I used it on three pairs of cotton canvas shoes, water beading is fairly obvious afterwards, what used to be hard not to get wet when walking in morning dew covered grass is now fairly water resilient. I find that one can of Scotchgard would cover about 30 shoes, based on calculations I made according to the weight I measured before and after using a can. Definitely want to try out the UV protection spray as well." —alexw32

    Price: $12.99

    3. A cot bunk bed set that can also transform into a couch for the daytime. No need to waste time or space on carrying extra seating!

    Promising review: "I've now owned these cots (I have two sets), for five years and they are all still going strong. No tears, breaks or bends. These are SOLID bunks. We use them in all types of situations, whether summer on a screen tent or for winter camping. I would definitely recommend for saving space in your tent if weight isn't a concern." —Patman

    Price: $329.99

    4. A zero degree sleeping bag to keep you warm and cozy in temperatures that most people don't even want to go on a walk in, let alone go camping in.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "This is a great all-year bag! The flannel is really warm and comfortable. I bought five of these bags back in 2007. Here it is 2021 and I still have mine!!! I really like the canvas outer skin and the flannel interior, and that you can zip two together for even more room. My grandson tested it out and said that he was really warm and toasty in 26 degree weather. I will be buying another when mine gets worn out or the zipper totally gives up. Very happy with the purchase and hoping for different colors in the future." —Kimber57

    Price: $79.99

    5. A quick-inflating airbed because there's nothing worse than waiting for a bed to inflate after a long, strenuous day. And as a bonus, it can do double duty for guests and sleepovers in the great indoors, as well.

    Promising review: "Great comfort with this air mattress...used for five nights camping and never needed refilling. Non slippery comfort top." —Comfy Camper

    Price: $29.99+ (available in two sizes)

    6. A mini rechargeable lantern that'll provide tons of light but won't take up tons of space in your pack. And you won't have to worry about constantly replacing bulky batteries, either.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "I love this light. I use it at night when I need to get up and not disturb my husband. I use it when I take my dog out and it’s dark so I can see where I’m walking and what needs picking up. I will bring it camping the next time I go. Just a handy little light. I also plan to buy one as a gift for a friend." —Nancy McNabb

    Price: $39.99

    7. A mosquito repellent to keep you save from itchy bites, without all the fuss and smell of a spray or a candle.

    Promising review: "This absolutely works. We're able to sit outside in the evenings and enjoy visiting with our friends. We've previously had traps we hung in the trees, lanterns we hung around the porch, scented candles, etc. Nothing has worked before this." —spinnertoo

    Price: $49.99

    8. A Yeti mug that may not be as practical as one of their water bottles, but is just as (if not more) essential for caffeine addicts. That morning coffee is even more necessary after sleeping outside.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "This is our fourth Yeti mug, we bought this one for camping. We love the durability and that it is dishwasher-safe. Highly recommend!" —Alisa B

    Price: $24.99 (available in two colors)

    9. A double-gated carabiner because you can always find a use for a carabiner. Whether you're a hardcore climber or just clipping your water bottle on to your bag, you'll be glad you had one on hand.

    Promising review: "Great product to attach my Yeti sidekick to my paddle board and kayak! The plastic is strong and won’t rust quickly in fresh, salt, or brackish water. :)" —Anonymous

    Price: $1.99+ (available in three sizes)

    10. A ceramic water filter so you don't have to lug clean water to your campsite — just filter when you get there, and you'll be good to go.

    the red and grey filter
    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "I purchased this filter about 15 years ago and it works every time. Others in my group end up using it as well because it ends up performing better than their filtration system. Yes you need to manually pump (it's not gravity fed), but as long as you choose a decent water source, it works every time. Best of all it attaches securely to a number of bottles." —Ct. H

    Price: $99.99

    11. A propane camp stove because who even needs a campfire? With this puppy you can cook just like you would at home, no problem.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "I bought this a couple of weeks ago for a camping trip we recently took and it was fantastic. I hadn't even taken it out of the box until we arrived and had it set up in about two minutes. Works great!" —dmum

    Price: $149.99

    12. An outdoor lounge chair so you can sit like royalty, no matter where you are. Plus, it doesn't just have cupholders, it has a whole tray. That's luxury.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "OMG so comfy, that says it all! You can easily sleep in this chair, with a book and a cup of cocoa." —Eve1

    Price: $114.99

    13. An ultralight medical kit because it's always better safe than sorry. Hopefully you never need this, but you'll be glad you have it.

    Promising review: "Great kit to stuff into a carry bag or even a pocket. Hoping no one ever has to use it but immediate First Aid before help arrives is known to make a life or death difference. This kit has everything you need to do that. I have to remind myself that I am carrying it since it is so light." —NewJayhawkHunter

    Price: $19.99

    14. A portable toilet that might get you some snooty looks from people who really love roughing it, but you can stay secure in the knowledge that you didn't have to bury your poop and they did.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "Compact for storage while truck bed camping, and sets up fast and easy. A little tough to collapse but not that bad to do with a little practice. Seats comfortably and the bagging system is great with the toilet paper, sanitizer, and odor-izer gel thing." —Dave the Brave

    Price: $80.99

    15. An all-weather notebook perfect for keeping all your notes, sketches, and more safe in even the toughest conditions.

    the brown notebook
    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "Being from Washington, when it comes to gear, you should always keep wet weather in mind. Being in search and rescue, you need gear that can take a bit of an off-trail beating. Rite in the Rain products accounts for both and works flawlessly. Everyone in my unit carries some kind of notebook and pen and I swear by mine. My notebook has never let me down and I plan on buying another when I finally run out of pages. Perfect for taking notes on missing people, locations, and observations. The bright cover ensures that my notes will never be lost to the brush and the paper ensures that they will never fade away or get ruined by less-than-friendly weather. Paired with a Rite in the Rain pen (in a hard to lose bright color) and you will never lose important information to water again!" —SAR guy

    Price: $3.99 (available in two colors)

    16. A two-person survival blanket that's great for keeping warm in unexpected chills, emergency situations, or just when you forgot a real one. TBH it's a good idea to get a second one of these for your car.

    Promising review: "Very compact, easy to use and carry with you at all times. Can't wait to take it camping." —Momof27852

    Price: $6.99

    17. A North Face backpack equally suited to carrying school books and carrying camping gear. Plus, it's super ergonomic, so you won't have to worry about back pain in either situation.

    Bass Pro Shops

    Promising review: "This bag fits everything and is comfortable. It is durable and comfortable, plus it looks cool!" —Ryan, student extrordinaire

    Price: $69.99

    18. A portable camp kitchen that's basically no different than having your regular kitchen, just outside. Get ready to whip up some amazingly gourmet meals in the Great Outdoors.

    the silver kitchen

    Promising review: "These are just a few of my favorite things: Comes in a carrying case (this is essential because portability is incredibly important for camping gear.) Easy set up — it unfolds quickly and you only need to hook the bottom shelf on the braces, pop in the utensil rack, and 'assemble' and attach the lantern rod. The side table area is generous. I was a little nervous about my stove fitting but it fits perfectly. Thankful for the grid type table because the stove almost sets itself into the grid which prevents it from sliding around. I love the dish tub. I have a small sink I use for camping but having this tub as an extra will makes things so much easier. The table height is perfect. No stooping or hunching over causing an aching back. Trust me, this kitchen is worth it for the price."—Hebert985

    Price: $119.99

    19. A double hammock perfect for lounging, sleeping, and more— all in a conveniently light, foldable package.

    the green hammock

    Promising review: "I've been looking for a comfortable sleeping option for a while since sleeping on the ground has always resulted in a bad night's sleep and a sore back. This hammock was very comfortable. I slept much better than I ever had camping."—Frank M.

    Price: $79.99 (available in three colors)

    20. A backpacking tent that's the ultimate in simplicity — no bells and whistles, just enough space for two people and a ton of mesh windows to look at the stars.

    The gray tent with see through mesh windows

    Promising review: "I am new to camping so when I wanted a smaller tent for solo events I found this. It’s very easy to set up, easy to take down, and it fits back in the bag, There is enough headroom to sit upright but certainly not enough to stand. Entry and exit are reasonably easy and the fly sheet goes all the way to the ground. Packed, the tent is smaller than my sleeping bag, and a twin air mattress fits just fine. I think it would be cozy with two people, but doable if they are on good terms."—SpinningJohnny

    Price: $59.99

    21. A rechargeable headlamp with a suuuuuper slim profile, so you won't have to worry about bonking a bulky light on every surface imaginable while you try to find things at night.

    the grey and black headlamp

    Promising review: "Excellent product. Great for bike riding or working in the garage. I use mine for bright lighting to color by!"—Acfloyd

    Price: $59.99 (available in two colors)
