Not everyone likes to load up their backpack with all of their gear and hike into the backcountry. In fact, many love to stay in a more accessible campsite and enjoy some amenities while they enjoy their time outdoors. For those folks, National Geographic has posted some suggestions on gear that can up your next car camping escape, bringing more comfort to the campfire.
Amongst the gear that Nat Geo recommends is a Yellow Jacket 4 mtnGLO tent from Big Agnes, which has enough room to sleep four and is even tall enough for many people to stand up inside. Mountain Hardwear’s Lamina Z 22 is the sleeping bag of choice, with Klymit’s Insulated Static V sleeping pad providing extra comfort.
Additional gear that earns a nod include a warm blanket, a hammock, a comfortable camp chair, and a portable battery pack to keep your mobile devices charged up while away from home. All of the gear is easy to pack up and carry with you when you hit the road, which makes it perfect for summer trips or just family camping outings close to home, or even in the backyard.
