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.


Eureka!’s Warrior 230 camp lantern is the only light you’ll need beyond the fire. Its considerable output of 230 lumens will shine for up to 48 consecutive hours, but a dimmer conserves energy when you’re reading or playing cards in the tent. The Warrior 230 also sports a hook for hanging and, best of all, a remote that works from 25 feet away and includes its own LED light. No more dark walks to the tent after lights out.
