5. Sleeping Bag
One thing about camping that hasn’t changed over the years is the need for a sleeping bag. Depending on where you’re headed, you’ll want to consider things like temperature and the amount of weight you are willing to carry. In a world filled with endless sleeping bag options, the Sierra Designs Pyro Maniac is at the top in terms of performance and overall versatility. It’s light, yet warm — precisely the type of gear you want to take with you on any camping trip. An optional down comforter provides yet another layer of added warmth for when the mercury drops down to 15 degrees.
