Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy Bag: Total Comfort

I was always a little suspicious of what my father called the “mummy bag” when I would go camping as a kid. I wasn’t a fan of horror films, and I didn’t know if it meant I would be sleeping in something a mummy was buried in. But I found that a mummy bag is maybe the best design for a sleeping bag. And the Mobile Mummy Bag from Sierra Designs is maybe the best of the best. Continue reading


Jetboil Flash Cooking System: For an Instantly Warm Meal

Whenever I go camping, I love to build a big fire from wood found afar from my campsite. Hauling it back to the site in crossed arms is one of the serene moments I love in life. 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

Kettle Pot: Camping made easy with this super light 2 in 1 device

Even though I love nature and excursions to the lakes and woods only a few walking minutes from home are quite often the case, so far, other then homemade sandwiches and a thermos with water or tea, I haven’t really made more of this experience. Sometimes I wish I had the feeling we are going camping, also adding more time to such outings!
Like cooking a simple meal on the spot for example, or boiling up some fresh herb tea. On the other hand, keeping it simple is really important, too. Being armed like the Nasa is not my cup of tea concerning camping equipment. It might as well be that Biolite’s kettle pot, which is just recently released is a good option to consider, combined with the same brand’s popular Campstove. Continue reading


Cave tent: Bringing Geodesic to the Masses

The Cave tent design by Heimplanet is a tent like no other. Rather than being based on rigid struts, the tent assumes its kickass structure (Inflatable Diamond Grid FYI) through the inflation of a network of supporting tubes. The geodesic shape’s stability is so impressive that guy ropes are only necessary in the windiest climes, tested up to 120km/h… The look of the tent cannot fail to make you the slickest in the campsite – but frankly these are designed for far more extreme and exotic destinations. Continue reading

It is a tension-based tent that can be strung at any height above ground, to create a womb-like tree house in with hammock genes. Continue reading


Mikasi: a poetic hommage to a nomades tipi


Tipis seem to have been on the spotlight since some time now, have you also noticed? I do love them so for they bring playfulness and a feeling of relaxation and return to carefree childhood times whether placed inside or outside. The Mikasi tipi, by designers Sascha Akkermann and Flo Florian is a fabulous example. Continue reading
