Browse our comprehensive selection of Camping-related buyer’s guides.

Tent Buyer’s Guide
With all the styles and sizes available on the market, making sense out of tent selection can be a tough job. By analyzing where and when you will use your tent, the decision is made much easier.

Sleeping Bag Buyer’s Guide
Understanding the key components of sleeping bags and how their comfort ratings are derived will have you spending a comfortable night in camp.

Sleeping Pad Buyer’s Guide
No camper sets out expecting a plush experience. Well, none that have been camping before. Camping isn’t meant to be plush, and those who covet the outdoor experience don’t expect otherwise. Still, there’s no reason to suffer unnecessarily when you don’t have to. A sleeping pad is one of the items that will make an evening’s rest more comfortable. Pads serve to cushion the hard surface and insulate the sleeper from cold ground.

Cot Buyer’s Guide
In the camping world, the best option for upgrading a night’s sleep is to add a cot to your selection of sleeping gear. If you’re camping near your vehicle, a cot should be high on your priority list. In my opinion, it should be No. 1. With some of the compact, lightweight models, it doesn’t matter how far you are from your vehicle. They’re really not that bad to strap onto a pack. Think about it. You’re going to spend a short time carrying a cot and at least eight hours sleeping on it!

Backpack Buyer’s Guide
The last thing you want while you’re happily hiking down the trails is an uncomfortable pack that pokes and prods until you decide you’ve had enough for the day. Educating yourself before buying a pack will give you greater comfort – and a more enjoyable time on the trail.

Cooler Buyer’s Guide
If you already have a cooler, chances are you could use another one. If you don’t have one, you’ve clicked on the right link for concise information to make your buying decision easier.

Water Filtration and Treatment Buyer’s Guide
It is a simple fact; we require water for survival. Maintaining proper hydration is not only healthy, but will give you more energy and allow your muscles to recover more quickly from strenuous exercise. But, how can you be sure that the water is safe enough to drink?

Camp Stove Buyer’s Guide
If your outdoor adventure doesn’t involve returning to a hotel or your own home each night, then that means you’re camping out. And unless you’re some masochist on a starvation plan, then it also means meals out.

Flashlight, Spotlight and Headlamp Buyer’s Guide
Not too long ago, buying a flashlight was a simple process, mainly because there weren’t that many choices. The most challenging decision was how many batteries did you want to use. Traditionally, you had the option of selecting a large, rectangular 6-volt battery for extra power or units with 2, 4 or 6 D-cell batteries.

GPS Buyer’s Guide
With rocket science terminology and ambiguous acronyms, potential GPS buyers may find it’s easier to find their way out of the mountains without a GPS than it is to purchase one. Although there are some highly technical terms, choosing the right one for you can be fairly simple.

Sport Radio Buyer’s Guide
The push-to-talk feature on many cell phones is a handy innovation, but for the outdoorsman who traverses remote locations, where cell towers are nonexistent or severely limited by mountainous terrain, the best solution is a pair of portable radios.
