What’s Your Favorite Piece of Outdoor Gear?

Outdoor gearEverybody’s got one. A go-to gadget. Something that they are really proud of, or something they never leave home without. The first thing they would grab in a house fire, or the one thing that they would bring with them on a deserted island. There’s a lot of great camping equipment and outdoor gear on the market these days, but when push comes to shove, everybody has their favorite.

Survey a room of campers, hikers, and adventurists what their favorite piece of outdoor gear is, and you will get a whole slew of answers. Everyone has different preferences, needs, concerns, and habits, all of which will influence what a person’s favorite outdoor gear is.

Some prefer practicality. They can put up with bells and whistles, but when it comes down to it, they would rather just have something that gets the job done. Tried and true over new.

  • Duct tape
  • Multitool
  • Hiking boots
  • Hiking backpack
  • Camp stove

Some prefer comfort. Why rough it when you don’t have to? A sleep without a pillow is no sleep at all.

  • Sleeping pad
  • Camp chair
  • Travel pillow
  • French press (coffee’s comfort too)
  • Camp slippers

Some prefer technology. We’re living in the 21st century, so we might as well embrace it. Only savages camp without electronics.

  • Solar charger
  • Portable speaker
  • LED headlamp
  • Steripen
  • Lantern

Some prefer security. They want to know that they can restart civilization once their camping trip goes awry. Or at least know that they can still cook their instant meals when their matches get wet.

  • Survival knife
  • First aid kit
  • Emergency bivy
  • Water filter
  • Fire paste

These are just a few examples of what your favorite outdoor gear might be. Everyone has their own preference and each person is different. What works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another. Maybe you really love your spork, or perhaps you think that your CamelBak is the greatest thing ever made. Maybe it’s something completely different.

We carry all of these things and more here at Uncle Sam’s. Leave a comment and let us know what your favorite piece of outdoor gear is!
