Gone Camping: Our Favorite Outdoor Essentials, Design Edition


Gone Camping: Our Favorite Outdoor Essentials, Design Edition

May 4, 2023

Admittedly, the Remodelista team is not the most eager bunch when it comes to camping. Nevertheless, we’ve each been lured into outdoor adventure with some hard-wearing, attractive accoutrements. Here are our favorites for a weekend in a tent—or an afternoon hike or picnic.

the petite prakti portable stove is good for &#8\2\20;car campers, festival 17
Above: The petite Prakti Portable Stove is good for “car campers, festival-goers, street food chefs (can be used all day), backyard barbecues, picnics, sunny days, and more,” according to Prakti, a nonprofit social enterprise. It was developed in India and can be used with any kind of standard charcoal, and proceeds go towards Prakti’s mission: to “save lives, empower women, alleviate poverty, and preserve the environment by developing and scaling the adoption of clean, efficient cookstoves that cooks want.” You can source the stove for £130 via Labour and Wait, or sign up for the waitlist directly via Prakti.

Above: The Recycled Wool Picnic Blanket (shown here in Teal Patchwork Check) is designed in Edinburgh and “woven from 70% recycled wool and 30% mixed recycled fibers.

Above: Good for camping or just for a party: the Shimo Tank from Snow Peak is a sturdy, vacuum-insulated stainless steel drink dispenser; it’s $324.95. Adds Francesca: “For a gift or superslurge, Snow Peak’s titanium bottles are amazing. Incredibly light and retain heat/cold. I’m not much of a camper, but I do love a picnic.”

Above: The natural Herbal Bug Repellent by Los Poblanos, the organic farm and inn in New Mexico, “combines the LP farm’s organic lavender hydrosol with a powerful blend of essential oils-including citronella, eucalyptus, cedarwood and lemongrass”.

Above: Snow Peak is our go-to for good-looking camp supplies, and their Take! Renewed Bamboo Chair would look equally chic at a campsite or, really, just in the living room. It’s $189.95. (Another recent recc comes from our friend Heidi Swanson: “The Yoho Bamboo Butterfly Chair by Kuma is the coziest chair. It’s heavy though. So we only have one.”)

Above: “From Father Rabbit in New Zealand: a better-looking beer cooler,” Margot reports. The Huski Beer Cooler is triple insulated and available in stainless steel or white; $39.99 NZ ($25.07 USD).

Above: Reports Nell: “The Large Hinza Bag—which is made from a renewable raw material sourced from sugar cane—comes with me everywhere and is particularly great on camping trips because you can fill it with different items at different points in the trip. It’s been a shoe carrier, drinks holder (it takes ice and water), and beach bag. It’s also great for carrying dirty dishes to the washing-up station at the end of the night. It cleans beautifully and still looks good as new. Oh, it has also carried logs for the campfire!” The bag is £21.50 from Royal Design Co.
