Summer is here, and if you’re trying to get into Gorgeous outdoors, you are likely to take a trip to King. Going to the store in a hurry because you just decided you’re going camping this weekend is a kind of rite of passage, and whether you HeightAnd camp, hiking, Skior kayak or bicycleYou may have been in one at some point.

As more and more people get outdoors, we’ve come up with putting all of our years of shopping at REI to use and plan some of our all-time favorite purchases. Below, you’ll find equipment we’ve personally used (some of our items are out of stock or discontinued, in this case we’ve found a similar item from the same brand) for hiking, climbing, camping, and more.

Eno SingleNest Hammock ($49.95; ree.com)

Eno SingleNest Hammock

We’re always looking for opportunities for a good hammock session, and whether it’s on our balcony or at the campsite, nothing beats sleeping in a hammock. This one from Eno is extremely sturdy, holds up to 400 pounds, and comes in a variety of solid colors. If you want more space, choose the larger Eno DoubleNest Hammock, which has enough room for two people.

Eno Atlas Hammock Suspension System ($29.95; ree.com)

The only downside to the Eno swing is that its suspension system is not included. The straps are absolutely necessary for hanging the hammock, but they are very easy to set up and the package is very small.

Camp Chef Teton 2-Burner Stove ($149; ree.com)

Camp Chef Teton Stove 2 Burners

We’ve had a stove now discontinued from Camp Chef a little over a year ago, and it’s definitely changed the rules of the game. Having a stove big enough to handle two full size pots or pans was crucial when we cooked for 10 people during a weeklong trip. This Teton stove is a smaller version of the ones we have, but still has plenty of room to fit your standard sinks. Plus, the stove is very light and portable, so you can use it in your backyard if you want to get some fresh air at dinner time.

GSI Outdoors Glacier Camp Stove ($27.95; ree.com)

While the Camp Chef stove is great if you need to cook a lot of food, if you’re camping alone or just with someone else, it’s a little overkill. For smaller camp kitchens, we love this GSI stove. It’s not as small as MSR . pocket missileHowever, its large burner gives you plenty of room to balance your cookware. Plus, you can adjust the flame level so you can do anything from boiling water in minutes to simmering over low heat.

If you plan to cook at a camp site, you can certainly bring your own cooking utensils from home, but it will likely take up a lot of space and may get more wear and tear. That’s why we think it’s a good idea to have a separate bowl just for camping. It’s not the GSI frying pan we carried in REI’s anymore, but it does have a foldable handle like this one, so it takes up a lot less space when you’re packing.

REI Co-op Flash 18 Pack ($39.95; ree.com)

18 REI Co-op Flash Pack

This is one of our favorite daypacks because whether you’re using it for a day around the campsite on an uphill trip, it has everything you need. It opens and closes in an instant with a quick pull cord, has a chest strap, and features a water tank pouch so you can stay hydrated without having to stop and pull out your water bottle every 10 minutes.

TheTentLab Shovel Deuce #2 UL Backcountry

If you are in the woods long enough, you will have to defecate. And while a lot of campsites have restrooms, sometimes nature calls unexpectedly and you have to dig a hole. This is why it’s always a good idea to keep some toilet paper and a trusty scoop in your backpack, because believe us, it’s so much better than the alternative. This shovel is very lightweight and can fit anywhere in your backpack, so you’ll always be prepared.

Osprey Men’s Aether 65 Pack ($280; ree.com)

King
Osprey Men’s Aether 65 Pack

we love backpacks, but if you intend to hike in the middle of the woods and camp, you will need a large group. We love this one from Osprey, because it has plenty of storage, it distributes weight in an incredibly convenient way, and the top of the pack detaches and turns into a small daypack.

Big Agnes Mica Basin Camp Chair ($129.95; ree.com)

Big Agnes Mica Camp Chair

Camp chairs are a must when out into the woods for any length of time. Sure, you can find a rock or log to sit on, but it’s often uncomfortable and the lack of back support isn’t ideal after a long day of hiking. We’re using a slightly smaller, lighter version of this camp chair that’s currently out of stock, but this seat is similarly simple to set up and super light, so carrying it in your backpack or down the block to the beach is a breeze. In addition, there is also a file version with cup holders To keep your drink close at hand.

Men’s Altra Lone Peak Hiker Hiking Shoe ($140 USD; ree.com)

Men’s Altra Lone Peak Hiker Hiking Shoe

After getting into backpacking through 2020, we’ve spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect hiking boot. In the past, we used traditional hiking boots but never really liked the heavy, high-heeled design. Trail running shoes were tempting, but carrying a heavy pack made ankle support somewhat of a necessity. Next up, we found the Altra Lone Peak Hikers, the perfect blend of hiking boot and trail runner. They’re super lightweight, comfortable, and have a very large toe box, so when your feet swell from a long day on the trail, your toes stay wide.

Nemo Dagger 2 Tent ($429.95; ree.com)

Nemo Dagger Tent 2
King
Nemo Dagger Tent 2

This is by far the best tent we have ever owned. Perfect for backpacking, it weighs less than 4 pounds, but doesn’t sacrifice space. Sometimes two person tents aren’t as spacious as they seem, and if two people actually sleep in them, you’ll snuggle up all night. However, The Dagger has more than enough room for two people to sleep comfortably, and it also has extra room for gear. Plus, it has a huge foyer for the rest of your stuff so you can protect it from the weather, and setup is incredibly simple and quick.

Black Diamond ReVolt 350 headlights ($64.95; ree.com)

King
Black Diamond ReVolt 350 . Headlights

We love this headlight for one big reason: It’s compatible with both traditional AAA and rechargeable battery packs. This feature is pretty cool because with a rechargeable battery, you don’t have to waste batteries all the time, but if your headlight runs out in the woods, you can insert the AAA and not have to worry about recharging the battery right away.

Men’s Scarpa Drago Climbing Shoes $189; ree.com)

Men’s Scarpa Drago Climbing Shoes

As an avid climber, we loved using this shoe from Scarpa. It’s relatively soft and comfortable for such an aggressive shoe. If you are new to climbing, check out La Sportiva FinalsFlatter, more comfortable shoe.

Our winner in Best rain jacket for 2021The Patagonia Torrentshell is an amazingly waterproof, packable and durable jacket. We’ve been using it for months now and have no complaints.

Yeti Rambler Vacuum Bottle with Chug Cap ($40; ree.com)

King
Yeti Rambler Vacuum Cleaner Bottle with Chug Cap

During the hot months, we cannot tolerate room temperature or warm water. Especially when you’re out and about, there’s nothing like a big dose of ice water to cool you down. That’s why, even when we’re backpacking and keeping weight is paramount, we carry the Yeti Double Insulated Water Bottle. At the end of a long, hot day, you still have snow, and we found the Rambler Bottle to be more durable than other double-wall insulated options.

Rumpl Original Puffy Recycled Blanket ($99; ree.com)

Recycled Rumpl Original Puffy Blanket

We recently reviewed a file Rumble Adventure Blanket I absolutely love its warm and sturdy build. Even when we’re not camping, the Rumpl is our go-to for a movie night on the couch.

Swiss Army Explorer Knife With Pouch

The Swiss Army Knife is absolutely essential to us. Although the blade of the knife isn’t very large, you can’t beat the number of useful tools you’ll find in the nifty little thing. Our favorite tools are the can opener, wrench (you never know when you’ll need to open a bottle of wine!) and scissors.

Of course, if you are going outdoors, you will need to take your pup with you. We use these dog boots not only for long walks but also for the dirty streets of New York City.
