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.

SLEEPING PAD

The Big Agnes Insulated Q-Core stops just shy of glamping-style comfort at a cushy 3.5-inches thick. And its alternating I-Beam construction of vertical and horizontal baffles prevents you from sliding around at night. Best for cold sleepers, the polyester insulation is woven with silver filaments to enhance body-heat reflection that keeps you warm down to 15 degrees—so no need to pack away the camping gear when winter hits.
