Bright enough, ultralight, and basic in its design, the Princeton Tec Byte headlamp is an excellent budget choice for non-technical backpacking trips.
The REI Camp Bed 3.5 soothes a rock and roll sleeping soul. Super thick, leak-free, and easy to inflate. Wake up rejuvenated.
The Sawyer Squeeze takes the chore of filtering water and turns it into a quick and easy process. Fill the bag, screw it on, and squeeze.
Laying on a cloud may seem like a luxury, but with the Klymit Insulated Static V sleeping pad, even a basic backpacker on a budget can experience such comfort.
If Therm-a-Rest is the Ferrari of sleeping pads, the NeoAir XTherm is their show stopper. The combination of warmth, durability, and weight is peerless.
