There is a wide variety of shelters on the market. It can be either a spacious 4-season one-person tent, in which the backpack and inside tent accessories will fit or an ultra-light tent for solo travel. Your choice would depend on the season and the purpose of the camp. Each type has its advantages as a large internal volume provides greater comfort and less condensate. The vestibule, if any, can be used for cooking as well as for ventilation.
Ultralight tents weigh less than 1 kg. And this is their main feature.
Burners – there are a large number of burner models that run on different types of fuel
alcohol, gas, gasoline, firewood. Widespread gas infrared heaters can be used as an oven for cooking. In general, they are compact and lightweight. The peculiarity of the infrared heater is that it heats objects rather than air.
You can use sleeping bags of any form factor for camping, the main thing is that their temperature corresponds to the conditions in the area where you plan to go. For camping, you should pay attention to sleeping bags, which turn into a blanket. This feature will give them versatility, and if it is hot enough, you can cover it like a blanket.
Rug – a duo rug can be a good option for a camping format, especially if you have a double tent. A foam mat is also a good option, as it can be used to sit by the fire. Even if a spark gets on such a rug, it will not lose its functionality. If possible, you should take both inflatable and foamy, for complete comfort. If the tent is in the sun during the day, the inflatable mats should be slightly lowered during the day. As the air expands as it heats up, it can put more strain on the seams and partitions of inflatable and self-inflating mats. In the evening, the rug can be blown a little.
When starting your adventure outdoors, you should not forget about lighting. Although daylight is long in summer, you may often need to light a separate area, find something in a tent, or just light a table for dinner.
Bag or backpack
The choice of the backpack depends on whether you plan to travel on your own or by car. If you still plan to move more, you should take a backpack. The only thing about camping is that you always want to take some nice things with you and surround yourself with more comfort than on a hike, so the amount of things is usually bigger. It is worth looking at options from 50 liters and more.
The list of essentials for a cool camping experience includes a reliable tent, a comfortable sleeping bag, some source of light, and a sturdy backpack. Additionally, you should have a convenient set of shoes and outdoor clothes. Once you have your camping gear, you can head off to the campground you have chosen and enjoy your getaway.
