Spring Camping Gear Ideas

Feb 28, 2013 • News4 Comments

With spring right around the corner, I figured it would be a great time to let you know about some of the cool camping gear that you might not already have, or even thought about. Here are some of the items I have come across that are going to be must-haves in my bag for spring season camping. Also, I have kept in mind the importance of durability, water proofing, size, and of course price.

VWR ETERNITY Emergency Rechargeable Flashlight 3890

The VWR Eternity Emergency Flashlight Ensures you will never be without light!

The VWR ETERNITY Emergency Rechargeable Flashlight 3890 is especially useful for camping. The price is right at $24.99, and this torch will pay for itself with the cost of batteries. It recharges just by shaking it, so you never have to worry about the batteries going dead at an inconvenient time.  Also helpful for camping is that the VWR ETERNITY Flashlight is both waterproof and will floats. This makes it perfect for storing on a boat, or taking it on an early morning fishing trip. I also like the fact that it is lightweight, so it doesn’t add any extra weight to my pack.

Maxpedition 32 oz Water Bottle

Get your ice and water in easily with this Maxpedition Water Bottle!

So at home I use ice trays, and the most irritating thing is to try and fit the ice into my water bottles. The best thing about this Maxpedition water bottle is that the opening is large enough to put the ice in. Now, most aluminum bottles that I have a coating eventually flakes off. The “food grade coating” keeps particles from eventually flaking into your water. Next, there are three colors and art work features that you can choose to make the bottle customizable. I prefer yellow.

Pelican 1065CC Hardback Computer Case

Protect your computer or tablet when camping with a Pelican Hardback Case!

I personally have a tablet that I carry everywhere, so why would camping be any exception? This Pelican Hardback computer case can literally keep my iPad protected through a flood, which would be perfect for an unexpected spring shower that I do not want it to experience. Also, the Pelican Hardback case is shock absorbent so it will not break or crack the screen if it gets dropped or jumbled with the rest of my camping gear. The case will hold any type of tablet or eReader that is up to 10 inches long.

Gerber Gator Axe II

A good axe and saw like in the Gerber Gator Combo Axe can be a real life saver!

Now, there is nothing more dangerous than carrying around sharp weapons, but the cool thing about the Gerber Gator Axe II Combo is that it is a two in one axe and saw. The axe has a long handle which allows greater striking force with textured grips for better handling. The saw is inserted inside the handle of the saw with magnets making it safe and convenient to store within a hunting or camping kit.

There’s a lot more you can have for summer camping fun, both to increase fun and safety, but this should get you started.  What do you think?  What is your #1 camping tool or accessory?

    I WOULD PURCHASE THIS IF IT ALSO HAD A RAIL SYSTEM SO i COULD ADD OTHER LIGHTS, OR A LASER TARGETING LIGHT.

    Ok what is new Surefire has been making replacement forearms with lights for year for both Remington and Mossberg, problem is the cost low in being 300.00. You can get a replacement forearm with a rail and attach a 1 inch mount with a tac light a do the same thing. I set up 3 shotguns for what one would cost if I did a surefire replacement forearm.

  3. Brian says:

    That’s a great idea, and one we hope SureFire looks into as well! I will say this particular light is so ergonomic that an additional rail might make it too bulky, but there does seem to be room on the end for a rail. Maybe next years model will have further customization options.

  4. Brian says:

    This particular model and the intuitive and ergonomic design is what’s really new with the SureFire Mossberg Forend light. You certainly can buy a regular replacement forearm with a rail, but the great design on this light makes it much easier to turn on without changing your grip.
