Winter is on its way, cold days, long nights, but that shouldn’t keep you indoors, just make sure you’ve got the essential outdoor kit you need to help you along the way. Whether you’re camping out at a secret surf spot, going off on a trek through the wilderness, or just spending a weekend by the lake, gear up for the winter with these five awesome outdoor kit ideas.
Heimplanet The Cave Inflatable Tent
Getting a tent up can be difficult at the best of times, but when it’s cold and windy things start to get really tough. This is where Heimplanet’s innovation comes into play, The Cave Inflatable Tent. No poles, no problem. The inner tent only has to be attached the first time around, then you can just roll it up with the outer tent and inflatable frame once it’s time to pack up. You can have your home away from home up in less than a minute and all it takes is a few presses on the pump!
Outta gas? No problem, not when you have the BioLite CampStove anyway. This nifty piece of kit needs nothing more than twigs and wood chips to get fired up, so you can cook up a warm meal on those cold winter nights. This eco-friendly camping stove cleverly creates smokeless, hyper-efficient flames that puts it on par with gas camping stoves. What’s more, it also generates electricity from those flames, charging up an attached battery pack that can be used to charge your phone, LED lights, or any other USB-chargeable devices.
Grayl Ultralight Purifier
If you’re planning an adventure that could keep you away from civilization for quite some time then you need to think about your water supply. Luckily you don’t have to think much further than packing the Grayl Ultralight Purifier, a water purifier that’s simple as fill, press, and drink. Fill the container, press down the filter through it, and within just fifteen seconds the water is safe to drink. 2 liters of water per minute can be purified, and it kills 99.9999% of pathogens. Each purifier is good for 300 uses, or around 40 gallons of water. Don’t leave home without it!
MPOWERD Luci Outdoor 2.0 Inflatable Solar Light
When darkness falls you’ll want to keep some lights on, but bulky lanterns are a pain to carry around and battery-powered lamps can give up on you when you need them most. That’s why the MPOWERD Luci Outdoor 2.0 Inflatable Solar Light is your best choice. Squash it down to just 1 inch thick when deflated and it weighs just 4.4oz. Leave it out in the sun for the day for a full charge (7 hours to be precise), and the LEDs will keep burning on the bright setting for 18 hours. The adjustable strap lets you hang it from just about anything, and don’t worry if it rains either because it’s waterproof.
Nemo Equipment Helio Pressure Shower
So you’ve been out for a surf, or maybe you just need a wash after a long day hiking. Whatever the reason is for you needing a shower, now you can have one wherever you are. Introducing the Helio Pressure Shower by Nemo Equipment, probably the best portable shower system available. Fill up the sack (and leave it out in the sun if you want a warm shower) then simply use the foot pump to build up the pressure. It does a great job of getting sand and mud off when you shower with it, but you can also use it to spray down dirty gear and do the dishes!
