This Grayl water bottle can remove waterborne pathogens — including viruses, bacteria and protozoan cysts — using its proprietary OnePress global protection filtration system, according to the brand. It can also filter out particulates like microplastics and many chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals, Grayl says. The water bottle has a handle that rotates 90 degrees and it’s made from durable polypropylene plastic that can withstand drops up to 10 feet, the brand says.
For those looking to whip up a meal during their next camping trip, the OXO Camp Cook Utensil Set comes with a silicone turner for flipping burgers and other grill-ready foods, a silicone spoon for chopping, stirring and serving and a pair of stainless steel tongs with a built-in bottle opener. All of the utensils are dishwasher-safe and can be stored away in the included silicone tool rest.
Made from perforated synthetic leather, these mountain bike shoes from Shimano feature three evenly spread, hook-and-loop straps to provide a tight fit — the straps are also offset to help relieve tension in the foot, according to the brand. The shoes have rubber outsoles with a specific racing pattern for a stable and secure grip when pedaling or walking, Shimano says.
If you need a container to wash dishes, store items or haul supplies at your campsite, the SOL Collapsible Sink has a 16-liter capacity and folds down flat for easy storage, according to the brand. It’s also lightweight (weighing under 2 pounds) and contains dual-carry handles to easily transport it where you need it.
One of our favorite camping tents, this two-person tent from Marmot boasts double doors, a full-coverage fly for rain protection and two large sheltered vestibules to store supplies, as well as interior pockets to store smaller gear, according to the brand. It also includes a tent footprint to lay between your tent bottom and the ground, as well as color-coded clips and poles to simplify the pitching process, Marmot says.
One of our favorite hiking shoes, the HOKA Speedgoat 4 Trail-Running Shoes have maximum cushioning for added support and comfort, according to the brand. The shoes are built with a lighter foam that provides more bounce when you walk or run, and the outsoles are designed to provide a sturdy grip even in wet climates, Hoka says.
This top-rated hammock stand is a great option if you want to put a hammock in your backyard but don't have the right trees for it. According to the brand, the stand easily snaps together and comes apart, making it a good option for camping and beach days, too. Kammock says the stand can hold up to 300 pounds and can fit any Kammock hammock.
