Goin camping? No seriously, are you going camping? The summer season always brings about tons of outdoor escapades including fishing, hiking, and, of course, camping. Since a good percentage of camping trips are at least an overnight one (sometimes multiple days in a row), you are going to need more than just clothes and shoes to take with you on your trip. Depending on what you already have (and what you don't), a full roster of the best camping gear may require you to buy a tent, some sort of backpack, water bottles, sleeping bags, headlamps, and more. Hitting the trails (especially in this summer heat) is no joke, and you'll need to make sure you are properly prepared before heading on your trip. That includes taking a hard look at the supplies you already have to see if they are still able to adequately do the job.
No need to worry though! This isn't the 1950s anymore. Camping gear has gotten incredibly functional, technical, and dare we say... stylish over the past couple of decades. We've put together a roundup of the best camping gear to take with you this summer, and not to toot our own horn—but we think we did a pretty good job. You can check out our selections below.
