10 Camping Gear Essentials For Your Next Trip

Presenting the ultimate camping checklist: 10 pieces of outdoor gear you shouldn't leave the city without.


The Westcomb Switch LT Hoody is built for backpackers, cyclists, and climbers (long in the arms and tail for covering a range of motion) and doesn’t skimp on bomber protection from the elements. Two Napoleon pockets, a triceps pocket, and internal media pockets will keep small items dry if you are venturing out, though it bears no hip-level hand pockets. No matter. Heavy-duty ripstop nylon and stronger-than-average stitching will keep you nearly as dry as your tent. ($430; westcomb.com)
