Been camping this season? Then you probably want just a few more things...
If you’ve taken a camping trip or two this summer, you’ve probably added some items to your want-to-get list.
Whether you need some versatile hiking shoes, the right shower kit or a few extra tools, we’ve got ideas for those last little items that will make a camping trip even better.
Barebones No. 6 Field Knife ($75 at barebonesliving.com). Trim logs for the fire, cut rope for the tent or cut apple slices for the kids with this handsome new 6-inch, steel-blade knife with a walnut handle and waxed canvas sheath.
Gentleman’s Hardware Kitchen Multi-Tool ($32 at williams-sonoma.com). Never be without the proper kitchen tool again with this handy gadget that includes a grater, zester, cork screw, bottle opener, spoon, three types of knife and more.
Helly Hansen Loke Dash ($140 at Helly Hansen, downtown, and hellyhansen.com). Slip into a sturdy hiker with this locally developed hybrid that features a knit upper for comfort (and good looks) and lug sole for traction and stability. Available in three colors and in women’s styles.
Ecuadane Tungurahua Blanket ($130 at ecuadane.com). Get cozy around the campfire with this outdoors-chic, alpaca-synthetic-blend blanket that’s durable and machine-washable. The gorgeous print is inspired by the Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador and the piece is woven by the local Otavalo people.
Lila Rosé ($14 for four at Whole Foods). Wine anytime with this canned rosé that’s actually crisp and refreshing, rather than overly sweet and thick. The four cans hold a little more than a bottle, but without the glass or cork to worry about.
REI Co-op Shower Roll ($30–$40). Make your campground shower a little less daunting with this new toiletry roll from the local co-op. The mirror is handy for early morning check-ins and the pocket at the bottom is removable for quick trips to the loo.
Yakima Slim Shady Awning ($279 at yakima.com). RVers aren’t the only ones who get to pull handy sun/rain shades off the sides of their vehicles anymore. This light and easy system attaches to most roof racks and unfurls to provide more than 40 square feet of coverage.
