Best Camping Lantern [2020]

The best camping lantern for most people is the LED lantern by LE. It comes in a 2-pack, is waterproof, very bright and backed by a 2-year warranty. On top of that it’s very reasonably priced.

Best Backpack Cooler [2020]

Our favorite backpack cooler is the PFG Roll Caster. It’s a fully functional backpack and cooler in one and the insulation works exceptionally well. On top of that it’s very comfortable to wear, even when fully loaded.

Best Family Tent [2019]

The best family tent on the market is the WeatherMaster 6-Person. It is durable, weather resistant and offers plenty of room for a family with two parents and two children.

Best Tent Heater [2019]

Our favorite tent heater is the Mr. Heater F232000. Its low-oxygen and accidental tip-over automatic shut-off are safety features you definitely want in a tent heater. It’s lightweight and works for up to 5.6 hours with one propane tank.

Best Camping Cot [2019]

The best option for most campers is the Teton XXL camping cot. It comes with a lightweight aluminum frame, making it durable but still suitable for backpacking. Its design allows for plenty of storage space underneath.

Best One-Person Tent

The best one-person backpacking tent is the ALPS Mountaineering. It takes under two minutes to set up, is extremely lightweight and should keep you dry in almost every weather you’ll encounter. All this while still being reasonably priced.
