The 10 Best camping gear
From jackets and moonchairs to self-inflating maps and head torches
1. Falcon mug
These are very trendy and on sale in all of the hippest homeware stores, but a sturdy enamle mug is great for tea (or even red wine) when you're away.
2. Pursuit jacket
It may be July but rain showers won't be far away this summer. It's not the cheapest jacket around, but it's made from lightweight, breathable material and will keep you dry.
3. Gelert Caldera moonchair
A collapsible chair that's the last word in camping comfort. You'll be reclining with a cold beer in hand while your friends sit on the floor.
This grill gives two hours of cooking time before collapsing to become a welcoming campfire
5. Stravaig 28
You won't want to carry your big rucksack with you every time you go for a walk. This bag from Rohan is big enough for day-to-day needs.
6. VauDe Terra Trio 3P tent
This weighs nearly 3kg, so it's not the lightest of walking tents, but it will fit two people in comfort, or three if you don't mind getting cosy.
7. Trangia stove
Yes, it looks like an upside-down colander, but this clever little stove has served hikers and adventurers well for decades.
8. Lichfield self-inflating mat
Nights under canvas don't have to result in a bad back the following morning. This mat may look thin, but is very comfortable.
9. Vango Venom 300
If you're planning a number of nights under canvas, it's worth investing in a proper sleeping sack. It's ultra-lightweight and perfect for long-distance walkers.
10. Lensor LED head torch
Two torches for the price of one. This pack comes with a nifty head torch for getting around in your tent, but also a pocket torch for finding your way back from the pub.
