Camping Gear for Couples

TentIf you camp as a couple, there’s not a whole lot of sense in bringing two of everything. Why bring two sleeping bags when you can just bring one? Camping gear for couples means that there’s less to pack, and less to keep up with. Here are some great items for couples to take camping.

For couples who don’t want to be separated, yet want more warmth than just blankets can offer, a two person sleeping bag is the perfect solution.¬†Sierra Designs, Big Agnes, and Kelty are just a few of the companies that offer sleeping bags for couples.

An air mattress is a must have for camping couples. You can’t escape the gaps and dead space of placing two pads side-by-side. Plus, you just can’t beat the comfort of a mattress.

There’s no better way to relax than in a hammock, and while you could bring two separate hammocks to hang, you don’t have to. Therm-a-rest, ENO, and Grand Trunk all make hammocks designed to support two adults.

Kelty’s Low-Love chair is arguably the most comfortable camp chair out there, and it perfectly seats two. It’s a love seat after all. The Low-Love chair is all play and comes equipped with cup-holders and bottle openers.

If you’re setting up camp for an extended period of time, you need a water filter. Instead of bring a puny solo-hiking filter, bring a high-capacity group filter like the Base Camp from Katadyn.

Everyone should have a two-burner camp stove, couples and individuals alike. You can cook up eggs and bacon at the same time, or grill up some quesadillas while making a cup of tea. Two-burner stoves are great for groups, or just cooking multiple things simultaneously.

A lantern won’t necessarily replace your headlamps, but it’s nice to have ambient lighting from a lantern. Lanterns are especially useful for preparing food, playing cards, etc.

Couples will want at least a 2-person tent, and possibly a 3-person tent. A 3-person tent will allow you to spread out, keep your gear in the tent with you, and even accommodate a canine companion.
