Camping Gear on Sale
Dometic’s ExoFrame is the brand’s take on a sturdy yet lightweight design with a 75L capacity that holds up to 113 cans.
Inside, you’ll find two storage compartments with their own temperature control. Similar to home, you can have a refrigerator and freezer in one. The cooler’s VMSO3 compressor can refrigerate and deep freeze to -7 degrees Fahrenheit. A companion phone app lets you set the temperature and monitor its usage.
Plus, the cooler includes a dynamic battery protection system to prevent a dead car battery and allows deep draw on dual batteries.Shop Now
If dirt showers aren’t your thing, this 22L pressure shower is designed to tag along on adventures. The base fills with water and stays on the ground while you mount or hold the nozzle over your head.
The 5.8-gallon tank is pressurized by a foot pump. Build up pressure first, and with occasional pumps, maintain a steady stream for 7-10 minutes. That offers enough time for a couple Navy showers, or to rinse off dirty gear and muddy dog paws.
The polyurethane-coated has a large screw cap to accommodate dunking in water source or refilling form a spigot. And if you want a warmer shower, you can add heated water to the tank. Another warm-water hack is to leave the Helio LX out in some sunshine, heating the water naturally.Shop Now
Keep your gear organized in one place so packing for your next trip feels more like a grab-and-go adventure. This bin helps keep your gear closet or car trunk tidy while making it easier to haul the contents around. As part of REI’s Pack-Away system, this bin comes in a few sizes and works with Pack-Away cubes.
The bin’s 300-denier recycled polyester body is bolstered by a 1,680-denier foot to protect it from scrapes on the ground and wet turf. According to the brand, its side walls and panels inside are reinforced to retain their shape, but it can fold flat and fold in half, too.Shop Now
The BearVault BV450 Jaunt bear canister is designed to hold enough food for a 4-day solo backpacking trip or a weekend trip for two people.
Its see-through walls are made from a polycarbonate material that can withstand some bear abuse, and its wide shape aims to prevent prying paws and claws from gaining leverage.
The design is approved by both the Sierra Interagency Black Bear Group and Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee. Just remember to stash it 100 feet downwind of your tent or cook site.
It can even double as a seat with the screw-top lid sealed.Shop Now
The Nomadix towel is made for all types of occasions, from a park picnic to the beach to the yoga studio. The materials are made from post-consumer recycled plastic that’s absorbent and quick-drying.
It’s also slip-resistant and retains its shape, even after multiple washes. Additionally, an antimicrobial treatment helps prevent odor-causing bacteria from growing in the towel.Shop Now
Like the Original Towel, the Nomadix Bandana towel boasts similar absorbent properties and serves to protect your neck from the sun. It’s also handy to have around for use as a washcloth or a campsite cleaner-upper.Shop Now
Global travelers take note: The GeoPress water filter and purifier bottle offer protection from viruses, protozoa, bacteria, particulates, chemicals, and heavy metals. To use it, fill the bottle with water and press the filter through to the bottom of the bottle, leaving the purified water on top for you to drink.
A three-function drink cap has a drinking spout that vents air while it purifies and can block cross-contamination. GRAYL says the GeoPress purifies and filters 24 fluid ounces of water in 8 seconds.Shop Now
This medical kit contains supplies so you and a partner are equipped for any basic first-aid needs you may encounter on a 2-day adventure. The kit is thoughtfully designed with a layout map and see-through pockets for faster access to essentials.
The kit includes necessary aids like antiseptic wipes, bandages and pads, and gauze, as well as basic medications for itches, pain and fever, inflammation, and diarrhea.
There are even tools like EMT shears and forceps, and there’s a hiking first-aid guide to add extra information and help you prepare. Advertising a sub-8-ounce package, it’s compact enough to fit easily into packs of all shapes and sizes.Shop Now
The AutoFlow XL offers filtration without the hassle of a pump. Groups of backcountry adventurers can hang up 10 L of water, then let the filter get to work while setting up camp.
Six or so minutes later, and you’ve got filtered H2O, good for filling drinking and cooking. The reservoir has RF-welded seams and a reinforced base to hold up to wear and tear.Shop Now
This two-way satellite communicator can track your movements and connect you with 24/7 search and rescue with the push of a button (or two).
You can read our inReach Mini 2 review to learn more about how it works. Our reviewer noted, “The Mini 2 has 14 continuous days of battery life, a breadcrumbs feature that lets you retrace your steps even if you weren’t recording your track, a digital compass, and full integration with Garmin’s powerful Explore app.”
The palm-sized gadget weighs 3.5 ounces and can withstand bumps, drops, and rain.Shop Now
Big Agness updated the Copper Spur HV UL2 tent with stronger, lighter materials. It’s a popular design for those who value roominess with a packed weight of 3 pounds 2 ounces.
The three-season tent is sized for two people with two doors and two vestibules. The materials include double ripstop nylon and mixed-denier fabrics to bolster spots prone to wear.
The awning-style vestibule targets a more open feel if you’re inside looking out, and the tent’s foot has a 3D bin for stashing gear, ceiling pockets, and media pockets with cord routing.
The brand’s TipLok Tent Buckle design includes a keyed hole to lock a pole tip in place while setting up the rest of the tent. It also works as a rainfly attachment and tensioner, as well as a stakeout loop.Shop Now
GearJunkie chose the MegaMat Duo 10 as the best double sleeping pad of 2023. This two-person sleeping pad is 4 inches thick and laminated for durability. Its 3D construction gives the mat a more uniform density edge to edge.
Its inflation valve has a flap to prevent air from escaping when inflating and a bigger deflation valve for faster emptying — and there’s a mini pump for topping off. Closed foam insulation gives the pad an R-value of 8.1, making it a good bedding choice for winter adventures.Shop Now
