  1. These are some fantastic ideas for camping. I love the lantern where you can charge your phone as well that’s a great idea. Do you know if it’s waterproof? I have lost too many lights while out camping due to water getting in and ruining them. I am not fond of the glass flask camping due to possible breaking and a flask never holds enough for any occasion if you ask me. I like the decanter however not for camping, that one will break. Now the Nomad portable grill is an excellent looking piece of kit for camping.

    1. Hey Rick, thanks for your comment. Yeah, the lantern is waterproof. I don’t think you can submerge it in water but it can sit in the rain for a bit and still function as long as the rain can run off it. The decanter is more aimed at a hiking or camping enthusiast as a gift to enjoy at home that is themed around their passion 🙂

      The nomad grill looks incredible right? It’s on my list for sure. Will drop a good few hints to my other half on that one 🙂

  2. Awesome ideas, thanks for sharing. I’m looking for some cool gifts for the upcoming holidays, and I think I can scratch a few things off my list now. I wasn’t expecting so much camping and hiking gadgets and equipment. Thanks a lot!

    1. Hey Ivan.. Thanks for your comment. Yeah, plenty more cool camping and hiking gift ideas coming. Found some really unique stuff and will be adding more soon.
