While we focus a lot on camping in an RV, most people’s introduction to camping was in a tent and thousands of people take tent camping trips each and every year. It’s still sometimes the preferable way to camp. If you’re camping way out in the wilderness or just want to really reconnect with nature, a tent is the way to go. If you have a tent camper in your life or are a tent camper yourself, we have the gift guide for you. Here’s some fantastic gear to own.
Venture Forward Wilderness 6-Person Tent
If you’re camping in a tent, then you need a tent, and this Venture Forward Wilderness 6-Person Tent is perfect for the whole family. The 10 foot by 10 foot floor gives you plenty of room for everyone to lay down a sleeping pad and sleeping bag and get a good night’s rest. Pair that with four large zippered windows with mesh windows and you have a great tent for any camping trip.
Camper’s Choice 3 Person Tent
If the tent above is a little too big, then a three-person one will be perfect. I like a good three-person tent because it works for a solo camper or for a couple and their gear really well. This particular tent features a D-style door, two side windows, a gooped fly front, an easy to set-up pole and pocket system. It all collapses down and is easy to move from place to place, too.
Stanley 10-Piece Adventure Prep & Cook Set
A camper’s got to eat. That’s where this Stanley 10-Piece Adventure Prep and Cook Set comes into play. When camping you can’t just bring along you’re typical kitchen cookware. Stanely’s cook set offers all you need, including a 1.58 quart pot, a vented pot lid, floding cutting board, two 20 ounce bowls, two bowl lids, a spatula with an extending handle and a ladel with an extending handle. The best part is that this all folds up into a single package for travel.
Aussie Crushable Hat
If you’re camping when the sun is out, sunscreen is important but a nice sun hat can do wonders to keep you from having your head, neck, tops of your ears, and face from getting burned. Also, it can help keep you more comfortable and shield your eyes. This hat will do just that. It’s also a mesh hat, which allows for air to move more freely through the hat, helping you stay cool and comfortable.
Ultimate Terrain Men’s The Hagen Beanie
If it’s a little bit chilly out there then a beanie is going to be the right choice in terms of a hat. This simple yet sophisticated designed hat is exactly what you need. It offers a textured 100-percent acrylic kit shell, fleece inner band for added warmth and one-size-fits-most adults sizing.
Venture Forward Swing Chair
Yeah, you can get by without a camping chair, but you’re likely to find that having a chair of some kind makes life a lot easier, and a small foldable camping chair is generally the way to go when it comes to tent camping. This Venture Forward Swing Chair is a fantastic addition. It folds up small, offers a small carrying bag, and offers a 300-pound weight capacity.
Cascade 5 Sleeping Bag
This Cascade 5 Sleeping Bag is a very good all-around sleeping bag to have available. While you should really pick the sleeping bag depending on the specific trip and temperatures you’ll encounter. If you just need a good general-purpose sleeping bag, this is the one to go with.
The sleeping bag weighs just five pounds, offers a polyester exterior, nylon flannel liner, and self-repairing zipper. Are there better sleeping bags out there? Probably, but if you want something good for a very reasonable price, then you’d better take a good hard look at this one.
Silverton Self Inflating Camp Pad with Carrying Bag
You can always lay your sleeping bag right on the floor of the tent, but when you get up in the morning you’ll likely feel stiff and sore from essentially sleeping on the ground. A sleeping pad will help keep you more comfortable inside your tent. This particular sleeping pad is a blow-up version that comes with its own carrying case, making it easy to take with you. It also features a weather-resistant durable shell and polyurethane foam.
Carhartt Men’s Shoreline Jacket
There’s nothing like having the wrong jacket on a tent camping trip. It’s horrible. That’s why you need to get this Carhartt Men’s Shoreline Jacket. The jacket is designed for a life spent in the outdoors.
It features a fully seam-taped design that will seal out moisture, Storm Defender waterproof membrane, mesh-lined interior, snap-on hood, and internal rib-knit storm cuffs to keep water from getting up the sleeves. The jacket is warm and comfortable. It’s the perfect companion on any camping trip.
