Top 5 Best Camping Gear for 2018


Are you planning to replace your old camping gear? Is this your first time to go camping only want the best gear to bring along? Read on for my top 5 recommendations.

Flashlight – Anker LC90 LED

Flashlight - Anker LC90 LED

The Anker LC90 LED Flashlight is a waterproof, rechargeable, adjustable, powerful, and solidly built flashlight that ranks high on my list. It has 5 settings and a zoomable feature that makes it perfect for any time that you need to use a flashlight.

The company offers customers an 18-month warranty on their product and available at Amazon for only $26. A pretty good deal if you ask me.

FKANT Waterproof Solar Charger

FKANT Waterproof Solar Charger

This charger is compatible with GoPro cameras, smartphones, tablets, and GPS. It has built-in charging status indicator lights and can even double as an emergency flashlight.

Consumers also love the FKANT waterproof solar charges due to its water- and shock-resistant features. It is quite compact and lightweight that makes it a great camping gear. The charge is available at Amazon for $32.

LifeStraw Steel Personal Water Filter

LifeStraw Steel Personal Water Filter

If you ever went camping or hiking before, you know what it means if you ran out of water and are miles away from the nearest potable water source.

This steel personal water filter has a 2-stage filtration that filters about 99.9% of bacteria and parasites from any fresh water source, which surpasses EPA standards for water filtration. It also doesn’t require batteries or chemicals for it to work.

If that doesn’t get you motivated, how about the fact that it has been used globally for humanitarian relief under extreme conditions? It wasn’t voted as Time Magazine’s Invention of the Year for nothing. You can get your own via Amazon at $50.

MalloMe Camping Cookware Mess Kit Bug Out Bag Cooking Equipment Set

MalloMe Camping Cookware Mess Kit Bug Out Bag Cooking Equipment Set

If you hate having to bring bulky cookware for hiking or camping, then you’ll love this cookware set from MalloMe. If you are looking for a mess kit for one to two persons, this is just what you should be looking at.

The kit includes a non-stick pot with heat-resistant handle, non-stick pan, two bowls, one lid, spork, spatula, soup spoon, travel bag, and cleaning loofah. A bonus recipe guide is included. A great deal at Amazon starting from $35.

Garmin Fenix 5 Sapphire Watch

Garmin Fenix 5 Sapphire Watch

If you love engaging in outdoor activities, this versatile watch is a great item to consider. It is made of durable stainless-steel bezel with sapphire glass, resistant to abrasion, water-resistant up to 100 meters, long-lasting, and has GPS functionality.

This watch is compatible with both iOS and Android. It can be connected to Garmin’s ConnectIQ app for a more personalized use.

At a selling price on Amazon starting from $550, it is a bit pricey. However, its multifunction use for any outdoor activity makes it worth the money you spend.

Overall, I chose these five products not just because they are the perfect camping gear (for me at least) for 2018 but they can also be used outside any camping activity.
