  • YETI Hopper 30 Cooler

    Want to keep your soda, beer or food cold, but don’t want to lug around a cumbersome plastic cooler? The YETI Hopper offers the perfect combination of size and insulation to keep your drinks ice cold or your food from spoiling without you having to break your back carrying it around. The Hopper 30 weighs in at just six pounds and has more than 2 1/2 cubic feet of storage. What’s just as important is it’s completely leak-proof, so you never have to worry about unintended spillage. It’s having your own portable refrigerator right in your tent.

  • ENO SingleNest Hammock

    Is there anything better than relaxing in a hammock after a long hike? The ENO SingleNest is the perfect way for you to kick back and rest your feet while you inevitably rock yourself to sleep. Built for one, it is made of lightweight, breathable nylon that is triple stitched to support up to 400 pounds. It comes with aluminum wire gate carabineers so can hang the hammock quickly and securely. And because it only weighs 17 ounces, you’ll never even notice that you’re carrying it.

The only thing to beware of is it might just be so comfortable, that you’ll never want to get back up.

As someone who camps frequently, I can tell you that while the hiking is fun, relaxing at the end of the day is often the best part. That’s the time you get to enjoy the quiet outdoors and forget—if only for a few days—the craziness that is life in the city. But if you’re like me, you don’t mind having a few creature comforts alongside you at the campsite. Because sometimes…well…having a cold drink and a nice place to sit isn’t so bad either while you listen to crickets chirp and stare out at the night sky. Here are a few items you might want to take along next time you head out on that camping trip.
