Camping Gear

At the moment, I’m more of a car camper so I optimize for utility and comfort, but do consider compact and lightweight items to reduce space in the car and also double for travel for some items. This post is camping specific gear, but check out my travel gear page for clothing and other things also useful for camping.

UPDATE 2024: As I get older and also wanting to spend longer windows of time outdoors, I decided it was time to make some upgrades for both comfort and also cooler weather. I tend to stick to warmer climates and summers, but even summer in the mountains can get into the 30s or 40s. See below some new gear I’ve purchased and used. In particular I’ve become a huge fan of NEMO products. The design and quality make it well worth the money.

If you see anything you like, please use the Amazon links provided, as they are special links for me which help keep this site ad free.

Tip. If you have an REI near you, they are my preferred store for camping gear and travel gear. If you sign up for a membership, you get money back at the beginning of every year to use towards future purchases as well as special member coupons and deals through the year. Great company. Otherwise, you can find tons on Amazon.
