Top-of-the-Line Camping Equipment for Summer 2021

As the weather warms up, it’s hard to resist the pull of the great outdoors. Nothing can satisfy the call of the wild like an outdoor excursion. Having the proper gear is essential to making the experience as enjoyable as possible.  Camping gear and outdoor tool design are ramping up in recent years with improved durability, usability and compactibility.  So if you feel you need to step up your camping game, you came to the right place.  We present our choices for the best new camping gear for Summer 2021.

1.  Thermacell MR150 Portable Mosquito Repeller – $20.00

An awesome camping trip can be quickly ruined by mosquitos. You can protect your skin and your outdoor adventure with the Thermacell MR150 Portable Mosquito Repeller. This compact device creates a virtual scent free 15-foot tent over your heads to protect you from insects.  The product is powered by a fuel cartridge that warms a disposable mat infused with Allethrin, a synthetic copy of the natural repellent found in the Chrysanthemum flower.

The MR150 repeller is available in five different colors and comes with one fuel cartridge (lasts up to 12 hours) and 3 insect repellent mats (each lasts up to 4 hours). Refills are sold separately.  No more muggy, buggy nights.

2. LifeStraw by Vestergaard – $19.95

Imagine a water purifier that can guarantee 1,000 gallons of parasite & bacteria-free potable water.  Now imagine this purifier can fit in your pocket. We are talking about the LifeStraw by Vestergaard.

The LifeStraw is a hollow-membrane filter built into a straw. You place the straw into the water, and drink. Sucking the water up through the straw forces it through the filter, which removes 99% of bacteria and protozoa, down to 0.2 microns.  This can give you a huge piece of mind when stuck in a situation without water.  Removing 99% of bacteria from a stream is better than rolling the dice and removing none.  The LifeStraw is super lightweight too.

Vestergaard also provides clean drinking water to a child in need for one year with every purchase of a LifeStraw.  You can feel good about your purchase too.

3. Tensile Flite 2-Person Tree Tent – $399.00

Tents are perhaps the most important piece of camping gear. Even if you only go camping once or twice a year, there is no reason you should be subject to a bad night’s sleep on your adventure.  Tree tents are a unique camping option combining the comfort of a hammock and the security of a tent.  It’s lightweight and can be set up anywhere including the ground.  The Flite 2-Person Tree Tent is a great solution  for newbies, backcountry experts, day hikers, multi-day trekkers & anyone interested in a good night sleep in the great outdoors.

If you’ve been thinking about a camping date, a backpacking trip with the boys, or maybe a trip on your own, this is a great choice for a tent that will keep you off the ground and comfortable.
