Camping Gear

Camping gear has changed almost beyond recognition in the past few decades. Gone are the days when the only available camping gear was a heavy canvas tent, an enamel cup and plate, and something to dig a latrine with.

These days, camping gear is sophisticated, smart, lightweight and innovative. Today's camping gear takes the hard work out of camping to the extent that people who wouldn't have tried camping before are lapping up camping - and snapping up camping gear - at a rate of knots.

Whether you're buying camping gear for the first time or replacing your old camping gear, you'll love the wide range of camping gear available at ShinyShack. We've selected some of the most innovative, lightweight and useful camping gear on the market, so you can be confident that your camping trip will be fun and exciting without being too much like hard work.

One of the main types of camping gear available at ShinyShack is what we'd classify as survival tools. And one of the most useful survival tools in our camping gear category is the Pocket Survival Pak, which contains a fantastic selection of survival tools that you'll find invaluable if you find yourself stranded. The pack includes all sorts of tools that are great for hikers, climbers, hunters, and of course, for camping enthusiasts, and its contents include duct tape, stainless steel utility wire, fish hooks, a scalpel blade and even waterproof paper. If you're going to buy just one item of camping gear this year, this should be it!

We also stock a fantastic range of individual survival tools that no camping gear collection should be without. We have camping gear to help you light fires quickly and easily, like the Swedish Firesteel - army model, and Maya fire lighting dust; we have camping gear to help you find your way, like the Recta DMT ruler compass and the good old-fashioned simple pocket compass. We even have a hand powered chain saw - an unusual survival tool that slices easily through hard wood and is a great bit of camping gear for the serious survival enthusiast.

Camping isn't supposed to be as comfortable as a five star hotel - where's the fun in that? But with the right camping gear, you can have a reasonably comfortable camping trip without weighing yourself down with heavy camping gear. The pocket shower is a nifty bit of camping gear that enables you to have a shower when you're camping in the middle of nowhere, and you can dry off afterwards with a super-absorbent, light weight DryLite Micro Towel. If previous camping trips have been spoiled by soggy toilet roll, the Outhouse waterproof toilet roll holder is a piece of camping gear you'll never regret buying. And you can even take the kitchen sink on your camping trip these days; the 5-litre camping kitchen sink is a great piece of camping gear that is light and easy to pack and carry.

If you prefer to camp away from civilisation, getting decent meals can be tricky. You won't want to weigh down your camping gear with heavy tins of food, cooking equipment and the like, so it's worth stocking up on lightweight camping gear that helps you cook and eat at camp without slowing down your walking speed or taking up all the space in your rucksack.

Our camping gear category is packed with cooking and eating utensils that are designed for saving space and reducing the weight of your camping gear collection. The Outback ultralight oven is a great piece of camping gear that converts a camping stove into an oven for baking food and even melting snow. The SoloSet camping cookset contains a lightweight aluminium non-stick pan and frying pan (try the camping cookset for two if you're not travelling alone). And the FlexiFuel multi fuel stove is an innovative piece of camping gear that works with both solid and liquid fuels - one of the most flexible pieces of camping gear on the market.

If you're planning to cook and eat at camp, you'll need to ensure your camping gear contains the right sort of tableware. Ideally you'll want tableware that's very light, and which doesn't take up a lot of space in your backpack. The folding camping plate and folding camping bowl are both perfect additions to your camping gear if you're eating at camp; both are made from durable silicone and fold flat for packing. And the Alphalight alloy cutlery set is extremely strong yet very lightweight - an essential addition to any outdoor enthusiast's camping gear.

You won't want to weigh down and bulk out your backpack by including heavy tins and awkward boxes of food in your camping gear, so consider buying a selection of specialist camping meals, which pack away neatly with your camping gear without taking up valuable space. Our camping meals are freeze-dried and foil packed so they're lightweight and take up hardly any room at all, but each pack unbelievably feeds two people. Add a couple of varieties to your camping gear - perhaps a sachet each of the spaghetti and sauce camping meal and the spicy Thai camping meal - and you'll have plenty to keep you going for days.

Camping is lots of fun and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. And once you have a good stock of camping gear, you can enjoy happy and safe camping trips whenever you like. As long as you have the right camping gear, the only thing you need to worry about is choosing a destination.
