What are the Best Custom Camping Products?

I'm looking to swap out my mass-manufactured camping gear for the latest handmade designs. What are your favorite custom options?

A:We get it. Performance isn’t always the main reason you love an item. Sometimes it's the story behind the gear that matters. And many of our favorite outdoor tools stand out because they're handmade.

Believe it or not, sites like Etsy aren't just repositories for jewelry that looks like it’s meant to be worn on Game of Thrones. They're filled with innovate, useful, and thoughtfully designed outdoor products crafted in small batches in garages and home workshops.

We prove the renaissance in custom outdoor gear, we present three of our favorite new products.
