Backcountry Camping Picks

The North Face Wawona 6 Tent: 6-Person 3-Season: $500

This double-walled, three-season tent is made for camping with your crew under one big roof. It fits up to six people (or dogs) and has enough headroom for even your tall friends.

Camp Chef Pro 90X Three-Burner Stove: $350

Known for its compact stove setups, Camp Chef makes this larger, leggier version to get things off the ground and easier to sit over. The Pro 90X Three-Burner Stove has adjustable folding legs and two folding side shelves to keep ingredients within reach.

It works with a propane tank, which gives you 30,000 BTU burners and less hassle with smaller (more wasteful) camp fuel canisters. A piezo ignition makes it easier to light while the three-sided widescreen maintains the flame’s consistency.

Nocs Provisions Standard Issue 8×25 Waterproof Binocular: $95

These 8×25 binoculars are a compact way to look closely at a chirping bird along the trail or check how the waves are breaking while standing on the shore. The body is covered with rubber for grip and to protect from dings. It’s also waterproof and fog-free.

The 8x magnification makes it easy to follow moving objects while the 25x is good for moderate distance and clarity on brighter days without adding weight. The Bak-4 prisms and multicoated glass offer clear optics and you can even capture smartphone photos through the lens to look at the images later.

Dometic CFX3 75 Dual Zone Powered Cooler: $1,250

This hefty cooler eliminates the guesswork of traditional ice coolers. The Dometic CFX3 lets you adjust the cooling temp (down to -7 degrees F) via the display screen or its app on your phone.

The 75L capacity translates to 113 cans, but you’ll want to use it for a mix of food and drinks. To help with that, there are dual compartments, and you can freeze one section while cooling the other. No more ice-burnt veggies in your cooler!

If running a cooler from your car makes you uneasy, note that this has three-stage dynamic battery protection to prevent it from killing your battery.

To trap more warmth, the mummy shape is slightly narrower around the shoulders, and the interlocking draft tubes and down-filled collar keep the bag fit snugly around your face.
