A comfortable camping cot is as necessary as the trend itself. Not only does it provide the comfort inside the camp, but when you want to enjoy the peace and quiet outside.
However, many people wake up stiff when the cot is not comfortable. So pick a cot that has extra support and stash pockets. Things to look for include a support pad that is plush, quick-drying and water resistant. You could also check for adjustable backs and change the incline settings to your preference. This way, you can transform a simple cot into a lounge chair.
If you have the habit of tossing and turning when you sleep, then you might want to look for an XXL cot.
If you like to cook in the wilderness, then you need the right kitchen accessories to set up your camping kitchen. First and foremost is the cooking stove. You will be surprised at the sheer variety and innovation in cooking stoves available for camping. The other important accessory is a propane tank. Carry a large, reserve propane tank for your camp stove so that you don’t have to change multiple tanks. Other cutting-edge tools include modern Dutch ovens, camping knives, fancy tableware, metal tongs, seasoning etc.
You don’t have to rough it out in the wild. You can have fun, adventure, fitness and comfort all in the new age of glamping. Ensure you buy high-quality, durable gear and check reviews online before you make the purchase.
