03_camping_essentials

Everyone dreams about disconnecting from their day job to spend time around a campfire, hike to the top of a mountain or sleep under the stars. If you’re going to take the time to go camping, you should invest in the best gear to go with you. These essentials will keep you dry, safe, and cool on the trails. You don’t need to spend a fortune — camping in the great outdoors is only as complicated and and expensive as you want it to be. Here are our 24 must-have items…

Osprey Exos Backpack Series: When you’re journeying through the wilderness, you want your pack to be as light as possible. At just over two pounds, the Osprey Exos is an extremely lightweight and affordable option that comes in three sizes, depending on how much gear you’re looking to pack. The airy suspension keeps the weight of the pack from lying directly on your back, creating a much-needed ventilated space between you and pack, so you stay as cool as possible.
