Great Gear for Life Off the Beaten Path
We look at solid supplies for life off the beaten path. From camp lanterns to hiking boots, these products are great outdoor gear.
Midland ER10VP E+Ready/Compact Emergency Radio
Don’t be caught off guard; be prepared at all times with the slim and compact ER10VP emergency radio. An essential piece of equipment when you’re hiking, overlanding, or camping, it’s a great item for your supplies for life. The ER10VP will immediately alert you about incoming inclement weather. This versatile radio doubles as a flashlight with “high,” “low” and “SOS strobe” options in case of an emergency.
Supplies for Life: UST/Pack a Long camp Table
The Pack a Long Camp Table is a lightweight, space-saving table that gives you a sturdy surface for mealtimes and other camp activities. Made of a strong aluminum alloy, it’s waterproof, weather-resistant, and supports up to 30 pounds. This useful table features a quick, simple setup, and it’s lightweight and easy to store.
YETI/Rambler 10 Oz. Lowball
YETI drinkware is well-known for keeping hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. It’s Rambler 10 Oz. Lowball is no different. It features 18/8 stainless, double-wall vacuum insulation and comes with a clear lid so you can tell when it’s time for a refill. We like keeping coffee in ours; or, when we feel like having a snack, we like to fill it with munchies instead.
Fenix/CL26R High-Performance Lantern
The Fenix CL26R Lantern is a multidirectional, lightweight camping lantern that’s perfect for lighting up your adventures. Powered by a rechargeable 18650 battery, this compact lantern delivers a max output of 400 lumens—plenty of light to help illuminate your entire campsite.
Supplies for Life: UCO/Stormproof Sweetfire Strikeable Fire Starter
If you pack these stormproof matches, you’ll never get left in the cold and wet. These remarkable matches will even relight after being submerged in water. The advantage of the Sweetfire over a standard waterproof or stormproof match is that it includes tinder in its “point.” Light the point just as you would a match, and it’ll burn for seven minutes.
MSRP: $11 (20 pack)
