Time for a camping trip. What do you bring? You’ve got the tent, the sleeping bag, and the marshmallow sticks, but you’re looking for something to make your site really stand out amongst the rest…you’ve got to make the other campers jealous, right? Here’s our list of innovative products that are sure to kick your camping experience up a notch.

2. JBL Charge 3

If you’re really looking to throw a party in the woods, you’ll need better music than Jerry playing a poor rendition of “Wonderwall” 18 times in a row on his guitar. The JBL Charge 3 is the speaker you’ll want. Not only is it completely waterproof and connects through bluetooth, it’s also able to charge your phone via a USB. Plus, the giant battery in this thing gives it plenty of life to keep the vibes going all night long…for up to 20 hours to be exact.

3. Windpouch “Inflatable Hammock”

Hammocks are great, but when you start spending time that you could be relaxing setting it up, it can get frustrating. The Windpouch “Inflatable Hammock” cuts the set-up time to seconds, all you need is a light breeze. It’s basically a giant bag that uses a technology similar to what’s used with dry bags to quickly seal the air in. It’s like laying on a giant pillow.

4. Cauldryn Water Bottle

This product isn’t even out yet, but we’re so excited about the Cauldryn water bottle that we couldn’t leave it off the list. The company markets this as “the future of water bottles” and that’s actually what it might be. What’s the kicker? It can boil water using nothing but a battery. While you can use it to make coffee or tea or soup hot, perhaps it’s best use is in sterilizing water. This means that if you’re camping during a rainy day and aren’t able to use a campfire to sterilize your cooking water, you’ll have another option. You can pre-order them today at a discounted price.

5. GoSun Stove

You could use a campfire to cook your food…but why not use the sun? The GoSun Stove product line features a variety of portable options perfect for the campsite. Capable of reaching a temperature of up to 550°, you can use this tool to bake, roast, and steam meals with next to no effort.

6. The Wearable Sleeping Bag

This one might seem a little goofy, but it’s more practical than you’d think. Essentially an insulated onesie, the “selk’bag” product line offers a comfy and convenient way to stay warm.

7. The Pocket Shower

To many, camping is a time to get dirty. It’s a time to stink. But to others, this aspect of camping is a huge turnoff. If you’re one of those people that need a shower to feel great in the morning, the Sea-to-Summit Pocket Shower might be for you. It’s easy to set up and utilizes sunlight to heat water, making it possible to find a hot shower in the middle of nowhere.

8. Portable Washing Machine

Another product that isn’t a camping essential but might be nice to have is the Scrubba Wash Bag. Easy to pack for car camping, this product lets you wash your clothes with soap wherever you find yourself. As an added bonus, it also doubles as a dry bag.

9. Smart Fish Finder

The bluetooth-enabled Smart Fish Finder almost makes catching dinner too easy. You simply put it in the water wherever you’re fishing and wait for it to send all sorts of information directly to your smartphone, including water depth, location and size of fish, and the contour of the waterbed.
