Strongback Elite Chairs
Regular cheapo camp chairs fold your lumbar into a C-shape. The Elite Chair from Strongback actually has good lumbar support and a strong, wide seat. Sitting down feels like a proper ergonomic chair and not falling into a hammock.
The powder-coated steel frame and heavy-duty 600 denier polyester fabric can easily hold 300 pounds. The solid armrests make it easy to get in and out of, even after day full of adventure. The flip down drink holder keeps a beverage close by.
The Elite chair comes in blue, grey and green, comes with a carry bag and a 3 year warranty.
BioLite AlpenGlow 500 USB Lantern
Set the mood in the campsite (or just be able to see what you’re eating) with the rechargeable AlpenGlow 500 lantern from BioLite.
The 500 lumens is powered by a 6400 mAh rechargeable battery. It runs for 5 hours on high or 200 hours on low. IPX4 water and dust rating handles rain or splashes no problem.
With a quick shake you can change cycles modes through cool white, warm white, individual colors and multicolor sunset and sunrise modes. If you’re low on juice, a built-in USB-port can top up the charge on your phone.
Sea to Summit Ascent and Altitude Sleeping bags
The Ascent and Altitude sleeping bags from Sea to Summit will keep you warm in the summer or should season camping. The Ascent is available in 25 F, 15 F and 0 F temperatures ratings. The Altitude has 25 F and 15 F versions.
Both have a full zip down opposite sides so you can zip them together. The far sizes feature a half zip so you can fold the top open on the warmer nights. If it’s just your feet that need venting a foot, open up the short foot zipper for a bit of airflow.
Both bags are filled with 750+ Responsible Down Standard duck down. The Womens Altitude had added Thermolite insulation in the foot box for instant warmth.
Altitude 25 F: $379 (USD)
Ascent 25 F: $389 (USD)
Nemo Roamer Self-inflating Mattress
Clearly those sleeping bags need somewhere soft to go. With car camping there’s the luxury of space for massive, thick, warmer air mattresss. The Nemo Roamer self-inflating mattress is the perfect option for a bed away from home.
The 4 inches of self-inflating foam inflates and deflates faster with air channels inside and 3 quick-dump valves.
The fabric is 100% post consumer bluesign certified fabric. 2 storage options come with the roamer: a sleek stuff sack and a larger duffel with extra room for bedding or clothes.
The Roamer comes in 2 sizes: a double or XL Wide. 2 XL Wide’s can zip together to make a queen.
