Whether camping, traveling, or simply shopping in the city, we often need a way to keep food and drinks cold or frozen. Grocery shopping means a long drive, and insulated grocery bags are often insufficient. The Bodegacooler Portable Freezer (TWW75) 80-quart Dual Zone portable cooler and freezer is the perfect answer for all these situations.
We recently told you about SoftStartUp, a power management device for RVs. This innovative product doubles as a surge protector while reducing AC startup power demand by up to 50%. SoftStartUP is a game changer for RV and travel trailer owners struggling with power options to run air conditioners and other appliances.
If it seems like forest fires are getting worse and occurring more often, it’s not a figment of your imagination. In the state of Colorado alone, four of their five largest wildfires ever occurred in the last five years. To help keep that from happening while people are camping, hiking, or simply spending time outside this fall, Busch Light is giving away Busch Light Solar Cookers to Colorado residents.
Slice makes cutting tools that are durable and easy to use, but most importantly, their ceramic blades are finger-friendly and safe. Whether your goal is always to be prepared or you regularly have a lot of cardboard boxes that need opening and breaking down (raises hand), Slice has a knife that will get the job done. I was sent the Slice Folding Utility Knife and the EDC Folding Knife to try; both knives have features that make them different from and, yes, likely safer than using their metal blade equivalents. Let’s take a look.
We recently reviewed the Anker 757 PowerHouse, a large 1229Wh portable power station. As you can see in the review, it is an amazing product, but it is a heavy power source that might not always be the best option. The Anker 555 PowerHouse brings some amazing specs in a smaller form factor. Let’s take a look.
Power management is a problem that plagues RV users, especially regarding the air conditioner and possible power surges. The A/C spike at start-up is often too much for most small generators, and shore power often cannot handle it. SoftStartUp has been developed to prevent this problem while adding a level of protection against power surges. It is plug-and-play and easy to use.
I have really gotten into portable power sources since our ranch does not have power, and I find myself working out there at least once a week. My needs have grown quite a bit from a simple extra battery to charge my phone, and the Bluetti EB55 is the perfect companion for a camping trip or quick trip without power.
Are you a camper? Some people are, some people think they could be, and some people are not. I like the idea of camping, but when I think about sleeping unprotected — except for a sheer nylon tent barrier protecting me from wild animals, snakes, bugs, and the elements out in the middle of nowhere — it freaks me out, no joke. Car camping, though? That’s a possibility; with the Luno Air Mattress, it’s now possible, safe, and, most importantly, comfortable.
Mimish Designs is a company that knows about multitasking. Just take a look at the portfolio of products they have released since coming on the scene in 2013, specializing in household items that double as storage. Now they have released a backpack that converts into a sleeping bag in the Sleep N’ Pack.
I may not be the sweetest guy, but the bugs that live in my backyard don’t know that. If I go outside to work in the yard or swim in the pool, I can be sure to come back in itching from one of the many new bug bites I’ve received. Thankfully, I have the Stinger On-the-Go Insect Zapper.
Whether you’re looking for a technological detox or you just want to get away from “real life” for a while, camping is a time-tested vacation tradition that keeps campers coming back, year after year.
Hopefully the use of emergency lighting is reserved for camping and outdoor activities, but sometimes inclement weather and other events leave us in the dark. Either way, having lighting options with multiple charging possibilities can help keep us safe and comfortable. The Secur Dynamo Spotlight Lantern is a $35 product that will bring light and help charge your devices.
It’s May, which mean’s it’s off to camp soon for my son and me as we had to Camp Pilgrim Hills with my son’s class for an adventure in Nature’s Classroom. One thing we always pick up is water bottles, ponchos and a new first aid kit, because we usually have lost or broken the water bottle, torn the poncho and used the first aid kit. Coghlan’s has come up with a unique package that lets me pick up some of the stuff I need in one shot; I am talking about Coghlan’s Camper’s Kit in a Bottle. The water…
