We know camping is sometimes meant to be an escape from daily life but these nifty camping accessories will definitely make life easier whilst out on adventures.
15.Waterproof Camping Speaker
Small and light enough to carry around on your next camping trip, but it has very impressive sound quality for such a small device. It has a Silicone coated/rubber construction with a painted metal grill front and back. This thing would just bounce if it’s dropped.
14.Fenix PD35 Tactical Edition
In our eyes the Fenix PD32 Tactical Edition torch is the best camping torch on the market. The operating modes are useful and the light output is staggering. It’s a car headlight in something the size of a large marker pen. This torch will literally light up the entire campsite.
13. Biolite NanoGrid
For the second year running the Biolite NanoGrid has been listed in our top camping gadgets list. It provides you with a lantern, a torch, a powerbank for charging your other camp gadgets, and a chain of overhead lighting. Perfect for any trip out in to the wild or even a festival.
12. USB Camp Stove
This high performance camping stove is simple and elegant in design and features a thermoelectric generator (TEG) which works with the in-built Li-ion battery and can be used to charge your gadgets directly using the USB output socket. A great option for camping trips, picnics and road trips, the beautifully crafted Tegstove got the Dragon’s investment and it’s worth buying for your next trip in to the wilderness.
11. Collapsible Bucket
This is a great bucket to carry with you for any outdoor activities and it can come very handy for several reasons for e.g washing up, carrying water, cooking. It is very lightweight, portable and so easy to carry with you. It folds into a little round disk which you can easily fit in to your backpack.
10. Solar Kettle

The Stove doesn’t rely on fossil fuels and can be used with any solid biological material available as fuel: wood, paper, cardboard, twigs, straw, natural fibers and charcoal (propane free!)
8. Portable Pressure Shower
This is a great camping gadget for those who want to keep some home comforts when out in the wilderness. This solar shower is a great, environmentally friendly way to keep clean. The sun heats up the water inside the shower and the shower nozzle provides an effective stream of water. All you need is a tree or someone to hold it up for you.
7. Highlander Z Army Sleeping Mat
Lightweight , comfortable & easy to use – this padded foam mattress will help keep you warm & comfortable whilst out wild camping. It is a great bit of kit and for the price well made. Perfect for any festival, camping trip or when your just out hiking.

4. Tentsile Flite Plus – 2 person hammock
This thing is awesome and comfy. Makes camping and backpacking so much fun because you can count on a good nights sleep .The Flite follows all the Tentsile designs with a triangle base platform that uses three tie-outs to suspend it off the ground. The Flite is their lightest, most compact, most packable shelter they offer and makes it perfect for a camping couple.
3. Solar Charger
The charge time is fast when in full sun. My phone (a HTC One) charged from 11% power to 45% power in 10mins which I was happy with. It even charges when the sun is behind clouds. The RavPower Ace 22,000mAh is the best family power banks in our eyes. A great buy if you’re planning a long journey away from mains power.
2. Lightweight Camping Chair
The Leki Sub-1 weighs in at under 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds), making it one of the lightest free-standing camp chairs on the market. And it even has a zip pocket at the front and a cup holder. Easy to carry around on those long trips and even easier to fold out and have a chill!
1. Lifestraw bottle
Amazing camping gadget – we got this last minute before a trip to Nepal trekking. We filled it up using normal tap water in Nepal, streams and rivers, etc. Didn’t get any upset stomach or anything. (I haven’t tried a muddy puddle yet but I’m sure it would be fine). Highly recommend the life straw to any camping or hiking enthusiast…
