The Gizmodo Outdoor Gear Guide

There’s never a better time to head outside and enjoy the outdoors before it becomes too damn cold. Some of the below products will require some international ordering, whereas some are available locally. Who else is amped to camp?


Tents Should Have Had Built-in Air Mattresses Since Day One

A comfy air mattress can make roughing it feel a little less rough, although wrangling one inside a tent that’s a little too small for your queen size bed can be a huge pain. And that’s exactly the situation that inspired Dan Robertson to create the Aesent: a tent with a built-in air mattress on its base that’s always the perfect size.


This Minimalist Outdoor Grill Rolls Open Like A Sleeping Bag

There’s nothing quite like roasting a meal you just caught while you’re braving the great outdoors. It’s an experience made all the better with a campfire grill that doesn’t feel like a sack of bricks in your backpack. And while designerRoee Magdassi’s Stakes grill doesn’t exist just yet, we’re hoping at least one manufacturer sees the brilliance of this design.

Now Eddie Bauer (the company) is making a tent with a built in solar charger, and Eddie Bauer (the badarse) is probably screaming obscenities in his grave.


Tiny Pop-Up Trailer Hides All Your Camping Needs

It’s still not exactly ‘roughing it’, but this remarkably modular camping trailer provides many of the comforts of home without having to resort to hitting the road in a gigantic bus-like motorhome. When collapsed, Campa’s All Terrain Trailer looks more like a hot dog vendor’s cart than a place to spend the night, but it’s surprisingly equipped for such a tiny home away from home.


Brave The Amazon With A Stand Up Paddleboard That Turns Into A Tent

As paddleboarding surges in popularity, it looks like it could soon replace the canoe as the defacto mode of transport for weekend camping excursions. A company called Coreban has teamed up with celebrity outdoorsmen Bear Grylls to create the Ultimate Adventure Tent: an inflatable paddleboard that gets you to your campsite and gives you a comfy place to sleep once you’re there.


Disposable Garbage Bag Tents Are The Cleverest Way To Keep Camping Clean

Music festivals generate a lot of litter. Heaps of it. Litterally. It’s been a problem for ages, but Glad has come up with a clever design solution that solves at least part of the problem: a garbage bag tent.


Chill Out In This Breezy Beach Tent (Beach Not Included)

For Christmas I bought my nieces a tipi to play in. They’re obsessed with it, but I felt a little left, out so I’d like one of these breezy Gandia Blasco tents.


This Floating Globe Tent Is A Cocoon For People

Want to sleep outside without having to lower yourself to sleeping on the ground? Lucky for you, there’s an extravagantly complex and probably super expensive solution called The Cocoon Tree.
