Windcatcher AirPad 2

Summer nights camping under the stars is always great. And if you get the chance to explore celestial wonders while taking in one of the best shows of summer like the perseid meteor shower it’s even better. So we packed up our gear and drove to the desert arriving at night time when it was already completely dark. We all took out our sleeping bags and stretched out on the desert floor taking in the amazing night sky. For me that was the perfect opportunity to try out the AirPad 2. Continue reading

Kelty Mach 6 Tent: Camping on Air

Too many of us probably are very familiar with laboring over tent poles trying to arrange them in their appropriate configurations and finally being able to crawl in our tent and go to sleep. No longer will we need to waste energy on this routine.

With the included pump, you can inflate the Mach 6’s frame in under a minute and never struggle with bending metal poles, unless you want to. Continue reading

And the Mobile Mummy Bag from Sierra Designs is maybe the best of the best. Continue reading

But sometimes, I just want a fire ready to cook food quickly, and one that is compact, not one of those big outdoor grills. In just under two minutes, the Jetboil Flash Cooking System has boiling water ready for some instant soup or a hot cup of cocoa. Continue reading
