From Car Camping to Alpine Adventures

With money, space, and adaptability always on the brain, thoughtful gear selection goes a long way. Scope out these products that are equally useful across a broad range of adventures. Here are three ultimate outdoor gear essentials.
With everything you need in one thermos-sized container, the Windburner is an outdoor gear essential. It is the ideal cook stove for backcountry camping and alpine endeavors alike. The 1-liter capacity option brags 15 ounces of weight with an efficient radiant burner and heat exchanger, enclosed, fully-windproof design, and a folding canister stand for stability in uneven terrain. With its insulated design and handle for easy pouring or straining, the Windburner is the most efficient lightweight stove on the market.
For luxury ‘glamping’ or lightweight expeditions, there is no sleeping pad that provides more comfort equal to space conservation. At 12 ounces and with an included compression sack, its presence goes nearly unnoticed into any pack or hatchback. Solid insulation and air allocation makes for a comfortable sleeping experience, so hit the road worry and weight free with this outdoor gear essential.
Whether in the backcountry, at high altitude or a designated state park campground, illumination is an undeniable essential when scavenging for firewood and those late-night bathroom excursions. Its cost is equal to its value, bragging the brightest beam and longest lasting battery. A lock button, dimming, red light feature, as well as a battery indicator light simply add utility to an otherwise essential equipment piece.
