The North Face

The great outdoors has been attracting a more diverse crowd across North America and internationally in recent years. Whether this is down to work burnout, the ever-increasing feeling that technology has hijacked our lives, or the lure of Instagram-friendly destinations, camping is rising in popularity.

The 2019 KOA North American Camping Report has estimated that camper households in the U.S. have increased by seven million since 2014, with the total of those who camp three or more times a year increasing by 72%. And just this summer, Jay-Z and Will Smith became the new poster boys for outdoorsy escapes, with the pair both investing in a San Francisco-based startup dubbed the Airbnb for camping — Hipcamp.

With tent life on the rise, for those contemplating losing their camping virginity, or simply wanting to up their tent game, we’ve picked out 13 essential items that you will want to join you on your next trip. From the obvious place to start — a tent — to those easily-forgotten extras such as a chair and mug, we’ve got you covered. Good weather not included.
