       1.  LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

4.8/5 star rating from 61,199 reviewers
84% gave it five stars

5-Star Review:

“I bought this item for a hiking/camping trip in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and did it work amazing! It is an advantage to carry this around with you instead of bottles of water or a hydration pack. I was not afraid at one second to stick this into a random creek we came across and start to drink.”

      2. GearLight LED Tactical Flashlight

4.6/5 star rating from 11,581 reviewers
73% gave it five stars

5-Star Review:

I needed a flashlight on the farm. Sometimes, I need to go out in the fields at night to check cows and I like to see what I’m getting into. I bought these based on the excellent reviews. When I opened it I was disappointed because they are small and only take 3 AAA batteries. I didn’t think they would do the job but they do!!! I can see over a 1000 ft with these and scan all the fields. I spotted a possum over 1000 ft. I would recommend these.

       3. Coleman Gas Camping Stove

4.8/5 star rating from 13,814 reviewers

5-Star Review:

“This stove is a lifesaver and we absolutely love it. There are no bad things I can say about it, and if it ever broke, we would replace it with the same stove immediately. This stove is a game changer for camping. We used to just cook everything, and heat our coffee water on a campfire which can just take forever sometimes. This stove heats up SO quickly and saves so much time. It is incredibly simple to use… It takes only a few minutes and the flame is strong for fast cooking. One small Coleman propane tank lasts us multiple camping trips depending on use. We have also busted this stove out when our power goes out at home as well which has been a huge help.

       4. Venture Pal 40L Lightweight Packable Travel Hiking Backpack

4.7/5 star rating from 11,339 reviewers
80% gave it five stars

5-Star Review:

I made this purchase because I booked a last minute two day hike and wanted a lightweight bag that was cheap and functional. I bought one for myself and my wife. When they arrived they came in the pouch form and were very lightweight. I was thinking this was not going to be big enough. Once I opened it up I discovered that it was big enough and I had extra room once it was packed. The great thing about this bag is that we did not prepare for rain and we were caught in the middle of a freak cloud that was over us for approximately 2 hours. My wife’s Cannon camera was in my bag so we covered it in the extra clothes we had in my bag. Once we found shelter we discovered that this bag is water resistant. Nothing inside of my bag was wet or damp. This is definitely a great bag and I highly recommend it.

       5. Coleman Sundown Tent

4.7/5 star rating from 13,814 reviewers
80% gave it five stars

5-Star Review:

“My girlfriend and I just got back from Electric Forest. It was my first time using this tent. It was super windy and was raining buckets to the point where there were inches of standing water outside the tent (see photo). Without even treating it with camp dry or any sealant, we were bone dry and cozy in this tent for five days, and we only had the rain fly on and a tarp that covered about half the tent. It is a freaking TANK! Been camping my whole life and never had a tent this waterproof. It’s also super breathable even with the rain fly and a tarp; the little vent near the bottom is a great feature.

        7. Sleepingo Sleeping Mat

4.6/5 star rating from 21,889 reviewers
79% gave it five stars

5-Star Review:

This pad is lightweight, packs down to the size of a 16oz water bottle and is much more comfortable than my last pad that was thicker and heavier. My old pad was very noisy whenever I would move on it; this one is pretty quiet and I was never awakened when I shifted in my sleep. It takes less than 20 breaths for me to inflate and deflates quickly and easily. I’m 180 lbs, a side sleeper and had no issues bottoming out on the pad (you may bottom out when sitting, but with weight distributed for sleeping it wasn’t an issue). It felt as comfortable as pads costing over $100 that I tested at the camping store. Used it on a 4 night bicycle tour and was extremely satisfied.”

        8. Coleman Camping Chair

4.7/5 star rating from 29,486 reviewers
82% gave it five stars

5-Star Review:

I was looking for a chair that would be easy to carry, strong enough to hold me and with at least one little accessory. My husband and I are both big people, and I needed a chair that would hold us, sitting upright, and not low to the ground so we can sit comfortably and watch our grandkids ball games. This chair is very comfortable. It has not only a cup holder, but a small mesh flap that will hold a cell phone, attached to that another flap for a book and/or magazine, AND on the opposite side, a small cushioned “cooler” pouch that will hold at least 2 soda cans or water bottles. These chairs are great, so glad I ordered 2!
