Editor-tested and -approved: This is the camping gear our editors swear by.
When you're shopping for the outdoorsy friend or family member on your list, it can prove quite challenging to decide what gift someone will use and love. Our packing list for camping trips starts huge (like 100 items), and we often choose from a number of essentials based on the weather and duration of the trip.
For our editors, no matter how many camping chairs we've sat in, headlamps we've turned on, or water bottles we've sipped from, the 14 items below are our first choice every single time. We've personally tested every one of the items on this list, and this is the gear that never gets left behind, no matter how many options we have or how limited our cargo space.
Check out our 14 must-haves for outdoorspeople when you need the perfect camping gift this year, and we bet you'll end up spoiling yourself with something nice, too.
