Essential Camping Gear
Getting quality sleep matters, even when you're camping with friends and family.
Use these tips from Ace to find the right camping equipment and supplies to help you get a good night's rest:
- Buy a durable tent that fits your needs. Domed tents with heavy-duty stakes that sleep two or three people are ideal for most camping trips.
- Add an air mattress to your tent. Air mattresses are easy to blow up and keep you from sleeping on the hard, uncomfortable ground. Grab an air compressor for to efficiently fill your mattress at the campsite.
- For more mobile setups, pick up camping pads instead of air mattresses. This style rolls up for easy storing and travelling during backpacking trips.
- Choose a sleeping bag with the right temperature rating. Many sleeping bags offer comfort in weather around 40-degrees, but some models can keep you warm when the weather drops.
Helpful Hint: Don't forget about dinner! Portable butane burners come in both single and dual burner models, allowing you to keep everyone fed even in the wild. Single and dual burner propane stoves are also available.
Lights and Other Camping Tools
Things get really dark, really fast in the great outdoors. To help you navigate your way through the campsite even after the sun goes down, use these tips from Ace to find the right camping equipment for your needs:
- Look for a propane lantern for your camping trips. Single mantle options are the most economical and ideal for weekend trips.
- Buy back up propane to keep the lights on longer.
- Shop for a fuel lantern for longer camping trips or more remote locations. These durable lanterns burn bright and won't die as long as you've got fuel available to fill them.
- Add a tent ceiling fan with additional light to keep your indoor space cool and well-lit, even during hot summer nights.
From large tents to small fueling equipment, Ace has all the durable and high-quality items you need to take with you while you camp.
