5 Stylish Camping Gear Essentials
KUKSA FINNISH CAMPING CUPS
We love these hand-carved cups, made from rare arctic birch burl and outfitted with a reindeer leather strap. Apparently the cups are antiseptic and don't need to be cleaned between uses, so they're ideal for strapping to your backpack the next time you go camping—or as a gift to your favorite outdoorsy friend.

CLOVERWARE LITE UTENSILS
San Francisco outdoor gear company Alite just released these nifty camping utensils made from BPA-free recyclable nylon. A spork, knife, and cooking tool all in one, the implement is heat-safe up to 400 degrees, won't scratch non-stick cookware, and can be cleaned in a dishwasher.

Whether you're braving the darkened wilderness on a camping expedition or want to keep a little bedside light handy in case of a nighttime blackout, having a reliable flashlight (or Torch) around is always a good idea. This beech wood model by Jonas Damon features an LED bulb, which makes for a longer lasting, more directed beam.

CAMPING BAG BY BEST MADE CO.
Sturdy waxed canvas, brass grommets, and a woven lanyard make for one mighty fine bag by Best Made Co., a modern-day retailer in the manner of dry goods stores from the past. We dig the simple construction, the fact that the bag can easily be slung over a tree branch when camping, and that it's versatile enough to use as a day pack—just be sure to reserve this for Great Outdoors lest you want to fall into the "urban woodsman" fashion-victim trap.
