Take a peek at the best camping gadgets you can gift to yourself or to the outdoor lover in your life.

If you’re a camping enthusiast, you probably know that less is more and that overpacking is one of the most common mistakes of beginner campers and backpackers. However, besides the classic must-have camping gear, there are also multipurpose gadgets that can prove to be quite a practical and smart solution for your usual camping needs.

Solar-powered phone charger

Although camping is meant for reconnecting with nature, phones are one of the conveniences of the 21st century that are more than welcome in the great outdoors. Not only do solar-powered chargers help keep you connected in case of an emergency, but they also let you take as many pretty photos as you want or chill under the stars while listening to music, without worrying about battery life.

Practical cooking utensils set

This light and portable kitchen set has 4 forks, 4 spoons, 4 knives, a collapsible whisk, a spatula, utility knife, spice shaker, 2 condiment bottles and a cutting board, which is basically everything your need for outdoor cooking packed into one small nylon case.

Portable water filter

This straw-like water filter is undoubtedly one of the most practical camping and hiking gadgets one can have. It doesn’t take up much space, it’s easy to use and purifies water as you drink it from the source, leaving you with fresh, potable, lifesaving liquid free of parasites, bacteria, sand and microplastics.

Multipurpose backpacks

The most convenient camping accessories are the ones that have multiple purposes. For example, this cooler bag keeps your drinks and food cool but can also be folded into a chair, and it’s handy for any outdoor activity, including picnics, fishing, etc.

A smart first-aid kit 

Medical kits are camping essentials, and this first aid kit is completely waterproof, with a compact, durable case containing everything you need in case of an emergency— oh, and it also doubles as a LED flashlight.

Whether you’re camping alone, with friends or with your family (including the kids!), going on an outdoor adventure is easier when you have practical equipment, and now you know which camping gadgets to look out for in 2021!
