We’re so excited for this summer and all the outdoor adventures we’ll be embarking! We’ve done our research and here are a few essentials we’ll be bringing with us!
Tent: Coleman 8 Person Instant Tent
Awesome tent for large family or group! It’s easy to put together and it’s tall enough to stand in. A win in our book!
Cooler: Otterbox Venture Cooler 45 Quart
This heavy duty cooler is perfect when taking a road trip and camping because it can keep ice for 14 days! It’s smart design provides a few perks like latching lid, bear proofing and easy draining. We love bringing a quality cooler with us, this ensures all the food we bring stay fresh and makes our outdoor adventures a lot more enjoyable!
Blankets: Yeti Lowlands
This Yeti Lowlands blanket is a sturdy all in one blanket due to being waterproof, repels burrs, dirt and pet hair. You can easily rest the blanket on gravel or grass. But of course like any blanket, it also has a soft side!
Sleeping Bag: Mammoth Queen-Size Double Canvas
Comfortable queen size sleeping bag that can be shared with your significant other, kids or friends. It’s a great one to have on our trips!
Coffee and espresso maker: AeroPress
BPA free and lightweight coffee maker, perfect for camping adventures & coffee lovers! This coffee maker is similar to a french press but you can steep the coffee for a short amount of time and water can be at a lower temperature. It typically takes about 30 seconds for a cup, 10 seconds to mix water and coffee, 20 seconds for pressing the mixture and voila!
Pocket Knife: Opinel No.o6 Stainless Steel Folding Knife
Lightweight pocket knife that will float if dropped in water, also is very sharp and easy to carry. Perfect for camping trips!
Lighter: UST Tekfire Fuel-Free
This is one of our favourite camping gadgets, it’s a lighter powered by chargeable lithium ion battery. Which means it’s a fuel-free lighter, that only uses an arcing electrical current. Super lightweight and most importantly, windproof!
Hammock: Roo Camping Double Hammock
We love bringing a hammock when we go camping, it’s such a great way to add comfort and it only takes a few minutes to set up! This double hammock is sturdy, allowing you and your significant other or kids to enjoy the hammock together!
Survival Kit: SOL Origin Survival Adventure Medical Kit
We find it very useful to have one of these kits on hand. This kit includes all the essentials such as a flashlight, compass, whistle, wire, mirror, fishing hooks and more.
