One of the biggest challenges when traveling is to make the backpack as light as possible. Especially when, like us, you are a big fan of camping. Normally you have to carry a tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, camping cooker, plates and cutlery. After a lot of searching we found following products that let us enjoy our camping traveling style without adding too much weight to or taking too much space from our backpacks.
Our Top Camping Gear:
The main goal when considering our equipment is obviously size and weight. We usually choose camping as accommodation option so if you want to sleep comfortably you need a tent, sleeping bag, and air mattress which all add up to your weight and space in your backpack. After plenty of research, we chose the Marmot Tungsten UL 2P. It is really easy to set up, full waterproof, small enough to even fit into a 60l backpack and with 1.67 kgs (3.7 pounds) really light.
No matter if summer or winter there are a lot of places, especially in the mountains, that get cold at night. You don´t want to travel with a sweater, a thicker jacket, and a rain jacket. So what do you do? Get the Fortress Hybrid Hoodie, it is as comfortable as a hoodie but keeps your body at a perfect temperature even if it is freezing cold (-70°F).
The Summit to the Sea is the perfect camping cookware solution. Normally you have to stack two or three pots together and since they need to hold water and food they need quite a lot of space. Not this pot, it’s a foldable and easy to clean cooking pot, making it the perfect companion on your backpacking trip.
