From the tent to the mattress, what is the essential equipment for camping? Weekends out of town and a summer 2020, still being defined, suggest that the idea of going camping, maybe in a dream location, well equipped and with beautiful swimming pools, can be a good open-air solution to avoid sharing indoor spaces a bit ‘crowded. For a long time it was thought that camping was an ideal holiday only for adventurers, but that’s no longer the case. There are exceptional facilities that embrace all needs, so even whole families leave with tents and inflatable cushions under their arms. It’s no longer even a stress to collect everything you need, because camping equipment can be purchased online. The best car camping cookware set can be also handy.
Enjoying life in the open air remains a simple and rewarding challenge, which guarantees easy social distancing and a great way to enjoy the days off work. All the useful tools are the basis of a comfortable and safe holiday: you start with your tent, move on to your boots, hammock and flasks. Here are all the essential tools for a holiday in the name of nature.
First of all, you need to buy a large and cosy tent – because that will be the basic home for the whole holiday. This modern camping tent is designed to accommodate up to three people. The outer tent, made of 185T polyester with a 3,000 mm water column, is PU-coated and fire-retardant. The inner tent also boasts a sealed and waterproofed PE 120 g/m² floor and can be raised at the edges to respond firmly and safely to any rain. There are two doors for ventilation and three entrances to the outer tent, one in the inner tent.
Sleeping must, of course, be a very comfortable experience. This inflatable mattress includes in the price the air pump and the pillow. Made of double-sided 40D nylon and TPU composite material, the mattress is very resistant to water, air and tears. The honeycomb airbag is comfortable and reveals a good ability to withstand pressure. Very easy to carry, it is also lightweight – so it hangs directly on the outside of the backpack. The 6 cm thickness is enough to insulate the body from moisture and the cold of the ground. The mattress includes: 1 eye mask, 2 earplugs, 6 temporary first aid patches and 1 bag for easy transport.
If you already have a mattress without a pillow, the Ferrino air mattress is a good solution. Size 40x30x7 cm, it is easily transportable thanks to the case, through which you can hang it on your backpack. The cushion is useful for all seasons and is made of nylon, so that it is light and easy to handle.
As a sleeping bag, it is worth buying one for 4 seasons – so that it can be covered at any time of the year. The Ferrino Nightec lite Pro 600 has a synthetic padding that guarantees maximum warmth. The Dual-zip system is synonymous with comfort. Lightweight (weighs 1.4kg), it covers a temperature range from 20° to -21°. Compact in its case, it is also very easy to carry on the move.
In the good sleep kit you can’t miss the blanket. This is made of Oxford fabric, water resistant but also with windproof and anti-sand. The soft fleece turns the blanket into a cozy and comfortable even during the coldest campsites. Large enough to wrap 2 people, it is also great as a picnic base. It weighs only 1kg and can be easily carried by folding it into its case.
Near the tent it is always very useful to place a hammock to rest, maybe after lunch or after dinner. This model is durable and durable. It folds easily during transport and is lightweight, but can also hold two people at the same time. The hammock is made of 210T parachute nylon with ripstop fabrics and is equipped with multi-hole straps and carabiners to adjust the height. The highlight is the mosquito net, a canvas that allows you to sleep away from disturbing insects.
With its folding tube design, this camping chair is perfect for sunbathing in complete relaxation and for transporting during trips or excursions. With a size of 35.5 cm x 14 cm and a weight of 1 kg, you can also put it in your backpack. The aircraft-grade aluminium alloy makes it foldable on three levels and maintains a maximum load of 136 kg. The seat cover is made of Oxford 900D fabric. Two side pockets can be used to store useful items. The Air-Circulation construction makes it a cool tool in contact with the skin even during the hottest summer days.
