With cool, innovative products like the Twig Pod and the S.H. Sleeping Bag (it stands for "sexy hotness"...seriously), you’ll definitely reconsider using the phrase “roughing it.” And for all you nature newbies out there (i.e. us), the good people at Alite Designs offer The Ranger Station — a complimentary box full of all your camping essentials from lanterns and squishy bowls to utensils and tents. Yes, complimentary!
Wondering why the peeps at Alite Designs are so generous? “We’re inspired by the idea that everyone should get outside. Whether that means hanging in the park, riding a bike, or camping in the woods,” explains staffer Paige Russell. “We design products that make getting out there affordable and fun. We make outside simple!” On that note, check out our top picks and go take a hike…quite literally.
