6 Budget Accessories for Camping Season
One side of this pillowcase from Rumpl is made from soft fleece, the other from abrasion-resistant nylon. When you’re ready for bed, unfurl it and stuff it with your jacket or pants to turn it into a comfy place to rest your head. It packs down to the size of a can of soda and only weighs five ounces.
It doesn’t matter if you’re backpacking or car camping—lounging in a hammock is the most relaxing way to spend an afternoon. The SingleNest is ENO’s original backcountry model, and it still overperforms in the wild, thanks to bomber 70-denier nylon-taffeta fabric that can withstand loads of up to 400 pounds.
Made from double-walled stainless steel, this sleek 12-ounce mug will keep your coffee hot much longer than it'll take you to drink it. We’re into anything that makes getting up and going in the morning a little easier.
Ditch the hiking boots around camp and go full-on Mr. Rogers with these booties. The Fireball is constructed from a tough Pertex outer with a DWR finish, 40 grams of PrimaLoft insulation, and a soft microfleece liner for ultimate comfort. The rubber outsoles are tough enough to handle light duty and pointy rocks.
Everything you need to make simple fireside cocktails—a shaker, a reamer, a jigger cap, and two rocks glasses—is here. Beer might be your go-to camp beverage, but there’s nothing wrong with indulging in an ice-cold martini or margarita in the middle of the woods every now and then.
A hot sandwich is a better sandwich. Load this cast-iron press with bread and your favorite sandwich fixings, then rotate it over the fire for a few minutes for toasted goodness. It’ll elevate your campfire-cooking game beyond hot dogs and marshmallows on sticks.
We featured the BioLite 330 as one of our top choice headlamps in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide. Unlike other angler-fish style lamps, the 330's light lays flush across your forehead. Plus, the light includes a rechargeable battery in the back.
The Z/Cloud has all the qualities we love about Chacos: super adjustable polyester straps and a podiatrist-certified footbed for all-day comfort, burly, non-marking outsoles, and the classic Chaco style that has become a staple at campgrounds and mountain towns. Plus, the shoes have an antimicrobial application for odor control.
We love this long-sleeve shirt for its discreet sun protection (UPF 50+ rating). Thanks to the soft, quick-drying fabric, it still “manages to feel light and breezy,” according to our tester. Plus, the bright plaid colors are casual enough to wear around town as well as on the trail.
This high-neck, open-back dress is one of our favorite adventure dresses. According to our tester (who wears a C-cup), the built-in bra isn’t quite supportive enough for running, but holds up well on casual hikes and urban adventures. Throw a denim button-up over it to make the dress suitable for fall weather or business-casual settings.
We take the Better Sweater almost everywhere because it hits the sweet spot between warmth, comfort, and style. It's made from a polyester knitted fleece that is soft on the skin. Plus, the fabric is bluesign® approved so you can feel good about wearing it.
The Pilchuck is soft, quick-drying, and breathable thanks to its blend of polyester, cotton, and wool. Plus, the shirt's western style and snap closures make it ideal for everyday wear in the office or casual hikes and bike rides.
The Seon Transporter was our favorite indoor climbing pack in 2017 because of its mix of commuter-savvy features. It has a padded laptop sleeve in one compartment, a separate chute for climbing gear, and a ventilated pocket for your climbing shoes (or gym sneakers). We can't get enough of this sleek, multi-purpose pack.
This shacket is part of our gear editor’s go-to fall outfit. With ripstop nylon on one side and flannel on the other, you can wear it as a classic puffy or an insulated flannel. Our editor said she found it “particularly handy on those fickle fall days when I want to wear the Kalaloch as a jacket over a T-shirt.”
We take the Better Sweater almost everywhere because it hits the sweet spot between warmth, comfort, and style. It's made from a polyester knitted fleece that is soft on the skin. Plus, the fabric is bluesign® approved and the sewing is Fair Trade Certified so you can feel good about wearing it.
