CAMPING BUYER’S PICKS SS15
Equipment buyer Dave has selected his favourite camping kit for this spring summer, from luxurious sleeping bags guaranteeing a good night’s sleep under the stars, to the latest cooking gadgetry and lightest camp kit for the avid wild camper.
1. Jet Boil’s MiniMo
“A nifty update to the always popular jet boil. The Mini Mo evenly distributes it’s heat making it a doddle to cook with.“
2. Pop Up Grill’s… Pop Up Grill
“It’s simple yet pure genius in its design. Easy to set up at the campsite or down the beach. A fantastic addition to your summer camping kit.”
3. Beyond The Beaten Track’s Expedition Food Pack
“I’d recommend to any first time camper or DofE expedition goer. Recommended by the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award it has everything you need for a day walking and camping, it takes all the hassle out of expedition food planning.”
4. Helinox’s Ground Chair
“This is the ultimate techie lover’s camping chair. As comfy as my armchair at home but packable and ultra lightweight at a mere 520gs – but astonishingly still able to take a load of up to 120kg.”
7. Constellation Double Sleeping Bag
“If you’re tempted by Cubitura’s mats then you’ll want a luxury sleeping bag to match. Incredibly soft to the touch touch made with ‘peach feel’ polyester, our ultimate luxury sleeping bag this season.”
