Tips for packing the essentials
Whether you’ve camped a few times or it’s your first, here is a list, plus a few packing hacks and tips.
Pack Light—You don’t need a whole lot for camping, but bring layers. Your outerwear can be worn daily, so no need to pack multiple sweatshirts or jackets.
Double Up—Your running shoes can double as daywear or hiking shoes. No need to pack multiple shoes. If it’s hot, pack a pair of flipflops to wear at your campsite.
Use Plastic Bags—Ziploc bags are you best friend. Pack each outfit into a gallon bag. As you seal the bag, press down to remove all the extra air. This will make more room in your bag and keep you organized.
- Socks. Wear multi-sport socks since you’ll be taking part of various activities. These will keep your feet dry and—fingers crossed—blister-free!
- Shoes. Wear a shoe that you don’t mind getting dirty. Ice Bug’s ANIMA – L RB9X is a light trail-running shoe that can be worn on the road or on rocky terrain. Whichever shoe you opt to wear, know it might get a little muddy, wet and dusty—so wear a shoe that’s waterproof or water-resistant.
- Workout/running gear
- Headlamps. Whether you’re going out for an early morning or evening run, or have to hit the bathroom at night, don’t forget to put on your headlamp! Nathan carries a few variations, so pick what suits you best. They are durable and long lasting.
- Hydration pack. Hydration is a must when exploring the outdoors! Whether you want something simple or room to carry layers, a Camelbak is the perfect solution to carry your water and essentials.
- Backpack. Choose a backpack big enough to hold water, your belongings, sunscreen, keys, money and an ID.
- Sleeping bag and pad. Voted best bang for your buck on Outdoor gearlab.com, the Kelty Callisto 20 costs about $80 and provides warmth during cold nights. If you get a bit warm at night, it unzips all the way to cool you down.
- Sunscreen. Always put on sunscreen before you head outside.
- Mosquito Spray. There’s nothing worse than leaving your camping trip covered in mosquito bites! Before you head outside, make sure to cover up to prevent those pesky little bites. The Today Show voted Sawyer as one of the most effective repellents because it lasts up to 8 hours.
- Towel. Any will do.
- Shampoo/Soap. For an overnight trip, you may just toss your hair up in a ponytail and throw a hat on. But for if you are camping for more than a night, you may want to clean your hair. Klorane Dry Shampoo is voted Allure’s favorite because of the ease to use and effectiveness. Plus, it doesn’t leave your hair stiff like other dry shampoos.
