Go outside; don’t worry, the tree’s won’t hurt you. It doesn’t matter if you can’t tell a fern from a ficus, we’ve found 5 high tech products to bring camping into the 21st century.
The Mountains are Calling…
As the great outdoorsman John Muir once said, “The mountains are calling and I must go.”
Unfortunately, nowadays, the only people that call seem to be telemarketers and coworkers. Luckily for you, the BioLite CampStove has you covered.
Not only is it able to cook your food or boil your water, the built-in USB adaptor is able to turn that thermal energy into juice for your phone or any other mobile device.
By using readily available natural fuels (i.e. sticks, tinder, wood), the BioLite CampStove is an easy and convenient way to charge your phone, rain or (no) sunshine. This multifunctional stove is extremely light and compact, so you’ll be able to take it on trips just as ambitious as you are.
That way, you can Instagram and Snapchat your dinner with the Sierra Nevadas in the background; with an unlimited source of charge, you’ll be able to use your phone to your heart’s content…although you might want to turn it on airplane mode.
Checking your emails instead of taking in nature kind of defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? Put away those tech products!
Now You See Me
The best part about being outdoors is the closeness that one feels with nature. Unfortunately, nature doesn’t have streetlights to guide you on your journey.
Luckily, the Petzl NAO headlamp uses smart technology to help you see the light.
You don’t need to look at your map at 700 lumens, and the NAO knows that. By utilizing a light sensor to determine the distance of objects you’re looking at, it will be able to adjust the brightness, leaving your hands free to do other things.
It works so well, you’ll forget it’s on your head. No longer will you have to awkwardly balance firewood with one hand and a flashlight in the other.
And with a rechargeable battery, you’ll be able to use this to help set up camp, cook dinner, and go on a late night hike all on one charge. If it ever dies, just remember to use your BioLite stove to charge it on the go!
Never Lost, Always Found
You swear you’ve seen that tree before, and that squirrel, and that…bear?
Getting lost isn’t something that suddenly happens; it’s a series of small miscalculations, or someone in the group who struggles with a compass. Before you paint a rock and name him Wilson, remember that fortune favors the prepared.
That’s why the DeLorme inReach SE is a camper’s ultimate CAMPanion.
With 100% global satellite coverage, the ability to send and receive text messages, and send SOS signals in case of an emergency, it’ll make sure your outdoor adventures are both fun and safe.
Never will you have to wonder if that giant rock you’re looking at is Half Dome, or just another rock. This tech product gives you and your loved ones peace of mind so you can enjoy the view in front of you.
Coffee, To Go
That crisp, refreshing, clean mountain air is the ultimate way to wake up.
Well, second best.
A nice, piping hot cup of joe to kickstart your day would be even better. Thankfully, you can give your day a little oomph with Oomph, the portable coffee maker.
Oomph utilizes pressure to filter your water, so you can get just the lift you need.
No longer will you have to drink “instant coffee,” also known as sugar-flavored bean water. You’re a powerful person, and you need a powerful kick to get your day started.
This will give you all the mental fortitude you need to bend nature at your will.
The best part? The grinds are biodegradable, so after you finish your coffee, you can just toss the grinds and move on.
Stay Thirsty, My Friends
Humans are 70% water, which is unfortunate because the longer you stay in the outdoors, the more dehydrated you get.
This can be a serious problem if you don’t have access to fresh, potable drinking water.
Luckily, science and nature have come to a happy balance. The SteriPEN, a UV based water filtration system, can sterilize any water from harmful pathogens and bacteria.
With the ability to purify more than 8,000 liters of water, it’s CLEAR to say that you won’t be thirsty.
