Traditionally, if you’re going camping, it means you’re dedicated to ‘roughing it’ in the outdoors for one or more nights – or as close to ‘roughing it’ as you want to get. However, this is the age of technology, and we have all become a little… how do I say this… spoiled. People don’t go camping; they go ‘glamping’, a much more posh way to spend time in the rugged outdoors. So rather than your axe and box of matches, you should be thinking about some more useful things to help you and your tech game like; downloading some useful apps and grabbing some cool gadgets. I mean I want to help you capture your ‘rugged’ moments in the woods this Spring and Summer so here is the tech you need for your next camping trip!

Light Up Tactical Knife

Okay, you have one hand on the fish you caught earlier and the other is holding the knife. It’s a bit dark out; you probably need a light to see better. Where’s that flashlight? With a light-up tactical knife, there’s no need to worry about fetching your flashlight or growing another arm. The SOG knife is sharp enough to address most meats and deeds and the handy light makes cutting with precision a cinch.

Shower Bag

One of the lost luxuries of indoor life is taking a hot shower. Some clever engineers came up with the idea for a ‘hot shower’ camping bag. The black bag absorbs the sun’s heat throughout the day, warming the water inside. When it’s time, hang the sack from a branch of a tree, pop the nozzle, and enjoy a warm and indoor-like shower.
