Petzl's nine-ounce MYO 5 headlamp offers five screaming-white L.E.D. bulbs and—finally—a tiltable housing so you don't blind anyone when you check the map. ($70; 877-807-3805, www.petzl.com)

With a removable foot section (shave weight!) and a slide-in foam pad (sleep great!), the Therm-a-Rest Fusion Ex is one mighty versatile mattress. Slip on the game sleeve and it gets better: Enjoy chess, checkers, mancala, and backgammon while the storm blows over. (Pad, $140; game sleeve, with pieces, $25; 800-531-9531, www.cascadedesigns.com)

Top off the eight-ounce Brunton Glorb lantern with lighter fluid, pop out its built-in tripod, and bathe your tent site in 60 watts of warm light for two hours. ($60; 800-443-4871, www.brunton.com)
