Camping & Lightweight Travel Gear

My personal favorites for traveling and being comfy on the go.  Whether you're camping, backpacking, or heading out on a road trip, these are my must-haves!

Battery powered rechargeable USB fan

Need a breeze in your car or tent? This is an essential for comfortable sleeping on-the-go. I love them so much, I have 2.

Portable Shower Caddy

Super convenient mesh shower caddy for all your travel toiletry needs. Keep everything organized and ready to go!

Micro-fiber Quick-Dry Towel

Convenient to pack, dry, and use, this towel is a must-have. Easy to hang dry with a snap-on loop, and tiny to pack away. Never have a wet towel camping again

Jetboil Cooking System

Light-weight & ridiculously useful, this system has been my go-to for everything from backpacking to road trips. 

Water Filtration System

A must-have for any trips where you won't be lugging all of your water in. A nice-to-have for road trips and hikes in case of an emergency. I add mine to the top of a water bottle.

Solar-powered rechargeable portable battery

This is essential for any kind of trip, and it can be recharged from the car, the wall, or the sun. It's super convenient. 

Inflatable pillow

Originally we got this for camping, but I've been SUPER grateful to have it for roadtrips and hostels too!

Inflatable sleeping pad

Need some extra padding while you sleep? Great for camping, or adding on top of a mattress pad for some extra comfort on a roadtrip. 

Coleman Sundome Tent

Easy to put up & tear down, great ventilation system, access spot for cables, and a GORGEOUS view with the rain-fly down. 

Super Bright LED Lanterns

Need to light up a fair amount of space? These definitely get the job done.

 

Battery-Powered String Lights

This is what I've been using for over 2 years now in my tent, car or van. Super functional, super cute, and they don't take up much space at all.

Water Bladder

There's no easier way to carry tons of water around with you than on your back. Easy to fill, easy to dry, these are our pick for small hikes, and backpacking trips alike.

 

My No-Build Van & Car Design 

Keep things simple and get out there! If you don't want to take the time to build out an entire van, here's everything I put into my van to get here ready to hit the road for some adventures in no time!

2-inch Memory Foam

Mattress Pad

Fitting a mattress into a van is no easy task. Folding a decent mattress pad to the exact dimensions is the way to go.

Portable Power Station 

This has enough to power the fridge and other electronics for a few days. You'll also get 2,500 charge cycles rather than the usual 500 of other brands because of the new tech.

Portable Refrigerator (48 quarts)

Don't ever bother with a cooler and ice again. This keeps your food cold and dry. It's been perfect for eating healthy on the road. 

Heated Blanket

Heading to some cold places? I always have this heated blanket with me for cold nights, and it keeps the whole car warm.

No-Slip Cutting Board

No kitchen counter required, this is it. You don't even have to put it away while driving. 

Food Scale

One big thing I've learned from traveling: You will eat the best foods along the way. I've added a food scale to my van kitchen to help with portion sizes.

Vertical hangers

In a van, there are tons of nooks and crannies to lose things in. Trust me on this one. This will help keep you organized (and sane) on your adventures!

Backseat organizer

In a van, there are tons of nooks and crannies to lose things in. Trust me on this one. This will help keep you organized (and sane) on your adventures!

LED Battery-Powered String Lights

Need to add some light to your tent, car or van? This is what I've been using for over 2 years now. Super functional, super cute, and they don't take up much space at all.

Collapsible Travel Toilet

When I solo-travel or stealth camp, I'm not getting out of my vehicle to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Here's my choice.

Kitty Litter

Pair this with two 8-gallon trash bags in the collapsible toilet and you're good to go. I'd suggest changing it out every day, keeping it to #1.

Pressurized Spray Bottle

Need an easy way to shower? We heat this up in the dash and use half the bottle for an entire shampoo & scrub-down shower. Also great for spot cleaning the van.

 

Self-Defense Gear

I do a fair amount of solo-traveling, and that means that I need to feel safe. This is some of the gear that I carry with me (depending on the trip of course).

Pepper Spray

Need I say more? 

Make sure you check whether you are allowed to have this where you are going. 

Stun Gun

It's rechargeable and includes a flashlight. I like to sleep with this by me at night, and test it before going to bed. 

 

Camera Gear

Visiting beautiful places means wanting pictures and videos to look back on Here's what I currently use and would recommend.

Canon EOS R with RF24-105mm Kit Lens

Need a breeze in your car or tent? This is an essential for comfortable sleeping on-the-go. I love them so much, I have 2.

OSMO Pocket Gimbal Camera

Super convenient mesh shower caddy for all your travel toiletry needs. Keep everything organized and ready to go!

Cross-body Camera Bag

Convenient to pack, dry, and use, this towel is a must-have. Easy to hang dry with a snap-on loop, and tiny to pack away. Never have a wet towel camping again
