Tarps can be lighter and even stronger than tents. But, they can also be a pain to setup, expose you to the cold, damp ground and don’t protect you from bugs. With its new ultralight bicycle camping (or anything) series, Nemo has fixed all those problems. Here’s how.

I'm constantly shocked by how many people don't know the basics of dressing for warmth in the outdoors. Even more people aren't equipped with the basics for sleeping warmly on a cold night. It's all simple and cheap, read this and make no more excuses.

So a Missouri-based inventor has come up with a cheaper way to stay safe during a twister—an …
If you'd rather bring your faithful companion with you on a camping trip than have them stuck in a kennel for a week, you're probably going to want them to be as comfortable as you are. And if they're too big to share your sleeping bag, the Noblecamper gives them their own cozy place to crash every night.

A tapering mummy-style sleeping bag is easier to travel with since they can be compressed extremely compact.

The worst part of camping—having to leave your sleeping bag's warm embrace for late night latrine trips. But with the Poler Napsack, you'll never have to take it off again, even after you return to civilization.
It turns out the tried-and-true technique of simply unzipping a sleeping bag when it gets too hot inside wasn't good enough for some people. Someone, somewhere, demanded more options, which led to the creation of this vented bag which looks like it's endured a bear attack or two.
