Coleman Cabin Tent

This tent may look like a task to put up but the brilliant minds over at Coleman designed it with pre-attached poles for easier pitching. They also designed it with darkroom technology that blocks 90% of sunlight and reduces the interior temperature so you can (finally) sleep in past sunrise. These cabin tents come in 10-person, 6-person, and 4-person variations and are obviously not for backpacking but the 2-person Coleman dome tent sure is!

Premium Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellant

Bugs can make any outdoor adventure a miserable experience in no time flat but not when you properly prepare. This permethrin spray can be applied to clothing, backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, hammocks and any other fabric you can think of to keep mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, and other insects away for up to six weeks. Very important side note: you can even put it on your dog!

Campsuds Biodegradable All Purpose Soap

Campsuds have been trusted by campers for over 50 years and with good reason: it's convenient, all-natural, lightweight, biodegradable, and incredibly multipurpose - use it on your skin, your camp kitchen, your clothing, or anything else that could use some cleaning around your campsite. Just because you're roughing it outdoors for a couple of days doesn't mean you have to skimp on hygiene!

Yakima SkyBox Aerodynamic Rooftop Cargo Space

Obviously, rooftop cargo spaces have come a long way since Clark Griswold took the family to Wally World. The Yakima SkyBox is versatile, sleek and aerodynamically designed while providing an additional 12-21 cubic feet of space for all of your adventure supplies. Serious adventure calls for serious equipment and a reliable rooftop cargo space is much cheaper than a car payment for a larger vehicle!
