Tips on Choosing Outdoor Camping Gear and Accessories for Camping and Camping Supplies!

Backpacks, Camping Tents, Sleeping Bags, Outdoor Apparel and more. 

Backpacks

Choose a backpack that is sized appropriately to the amount gear you need to carry.

The shoulder strap on the backpack should be wide and padded. Choose a pack with firm straps across the hips and chest to take some of the weight off your back. Touch fabric is must be durable enough, the bottom of the backpack is special. Unless you'r backpacking exclusively in the desert, buy a rain cover sized to fit your backpack. A rain cover will help keep the items in your backpack dry. A backpack is usually treated to be water repellent, but water can seep through zipper or seams. A rain cover prevents this. 

Hydration pack; Hydration packs integrated in your backpack greatly increase the ease of carrying water and drinking.

10-30 LITERS DAY BACKPACK | Single 1 Day Adventure: Ideally, for day-to-day travel or just for visiting an event, you will not be needing more than 30 liters. If you are carrying items for your partner or for your kids, look for a backpack that is around 30 liters. If you are only carrying your own items you might want to look for a backpack that is between 10 and 20 liters. Backpacks with a lower capacity are usually used for running or cycling a longer distance.

30-50 LITERS WEEKEND BACKPACK | Overnight 1-3 nights: If you are planning to go to a festival for the weekend or on a short hiking trip in the mountains for 1 to 3 nights, backpack with a capacity between 30 to 50 liters is ideal.

50-80 LITERS MULTI-DAY PACK | Extended Trip 3+ Days: There is a wide range of backpacks available for those who want to take hiking trips longer than 3 days. The capacity of backpacks that can provide you with everything you need for up to a 5 days is usually between 50 and 80 liters. These backpacks have an extensive amount of extra’s and extra thick padding for comfort.

70 LITERS+ EXPEDITION PACK LARGER THAN | Extended Expedition: Backpack Trips (5+ nights) If you are going on an expedition usually more than 5 nights, a backpack that is 70 liters or larger is the ideal backpack for your outdoor hiking expedition.


Tents

Select a tent that's made for the worst conditions you expect to encounter in your travel. Most tents have vestibules and their size is included in the specs. Bigger is better, but cavernous vestibules can add weight and cost. Footprint buffers your floor tent from routine wear and provides extra protection from an over looked rock or pine cone. A tent necessarily must be double-layer ( inner tent - breathable, and outer tent - water proof). Choose tents with high-strength, low -weight aluminum poles.

Sleeping Bags

Most Hikers choose synthetic insulation for its friendly price tag. Typically made of polyester, a synthetic fill quick-drying and insulated even if it gets wet. Its less expensive than down-filled bags, its durable and non-allergenic, Synthetic insulation doesn't pack down as small as down sleeping bags.

Sleeping bags are typically categorized:

Bag Type

Temperature (°F)

Summer

+35° and higher

3-Season

+10°  to 35° degrees

Winter

+10° degrees and lower

Most Sleeping bags are designed with a rectangular shape for maximum comfort and roominess, but mummy-shaped bags have narrow shoulder and hip widths in order to maximize warmth and reduce weight.

 

Clothing

Outerwear Layer: Outerwear is your first line of defense against the rain and wind. It should breathe so perspiration doesn't build up inside your layering system and soak you from within.
Installation Layer: Your choices range from synthetic fleeces of various weights and thicknesses to plain old wool, to down.
For winter weather, add a light down jacket to your wardrobe. Lightweight and highly compressible, down wont add much to the bulk or weight of your pack, yet it will help you keep warm during travel.
Underwear layer: Synthetics underwear (polyester and polyester blends) are best for rainy conditions and for heat and high humidly, but work for all activities. Wool offers more warmer than synthetic material of the same thickness, but it is still comfortable on worm days.
