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 Primus FireHole 300 is a monster stove for serious, but convenient, camp cooking. Its two propane burners light via a built-in igniter, onboard lights illuminate the cooking area, and the mounted windscreens double as a pair of prep areas. Adjustable legs counter uneven surfaces, and the included utensil set (cutting board, spoon, and spatula) adheres to the stove with magnets. And no need to hover—while you’re busy sipping beer around the fire, a timer ensures your dinner won’t be torched. ($295; store.primuscamping.com)
