Camping Gear Essentials
Nothing is worse than a lousy sleeping mat. In this case, spending some money is worth it.
We are using the Exped Synmat Hyperlite Duo which is super light and fits into a tiny packsack. In addition, we are using the bed sheet to make it a bit more comfortable and less noisy during night time.
We both have owned different kinds of tents before. What type of tent you are choosing, all depends on the purpose. Do you want to make a car trip to a campsite? Do you want to hike with your backpack? Are you looking for an emergency shelter for a day hike? We are using our tent mostly for backpacking. So it has to be as light as possible while having excellent protection from wind and weather. Currently, we are using the MSR Hubba Hubba NX, and we love it.
The best part about hiking is the well-deserved meal at the end of the day (and all the coffees in between). A reliable stove makes a huge difference to your camping adventure, allowing you to cook yummy dishes in the evening and to warm up in the morning with a hot coffee. Make sure to buy the right fuel canister for your stove. We are using the Terra Hiker Stove with an integrate Ignition. Another great stove is the Campingaz 40470 – a different type of stove but works perfectly.
There is a lot of excellent cooking gear out there. It always depends on the purpose of where you want to use your cooking equipment. We are trying to minimise the space and weight, so our backpack can be as light as possible.
We are both super happy with the X-Pot from Sea to the Summit. It is big enough for the two of us, and it can be folded, so it uses less space in the backpack. The lid can be used as a sieve. A perfect addition to the pot is the Jetboil eating Utensil Kit. It is small, light and matches color wise as well.
What is worse than freezing during the night?
We had many sleeping bags, but we never spend a lot of money on them. But during our last trip to Nepal, we realized how important a good sleeping bag is.

It’s good to know that you can make a huge difference in camping with a camping stove. My husband and I recently decided that we want to look into going on more camping trips before the summer ends, and I want to make sure that I can get the right camping equipment. I’ll make sure to keep these tips in mind once I start searching for equipment to get.
Thanks for sharing this. Camping is a great way to get outside, enjoy the great outdoors and make new friends. Planning your camping trip can be fun, but it can also be stressful if you don’t have the right gear.
Equipment for good sleeping like a sleeping bag and some proper packing supplies really sounds important. This way, you can store as much sleeping gear as you would need to ensure a good night’s sleep even if you’re in some rocky territory. That is something I fully expect to experience, so I’ll prioritize this kind of gear when I shop for camping equipment in the area.
I like that this post underlined that when looking for camping tents, it is best that we are mindful of the material. It makes perfect sense as it can impact the quality. I will definitely keep this tip in mind when I go look to buy a tent.
This list is great! I definitely agree that these camping gears are essential. It would also be great to have a camping chair don’t you think?
