The 4th of July may have passed, but there’s still plenty of tasty BBQ to be had this year. If you’re limited on space or need a grill to take on the road, this Element portable gas grill by Fuego is a great option. It folds up and locks for secure transporting and even features a nifty shoulder strap. Ideal for tailgates and camping trips, the 159 sq inches of cast iron grill space will cook your zesty meal at and adjustable range of 350-650° F. Compatible with 16.4 or a 14.1 LP gas canisters, it even features a push start ignition – so you won’t have to fuss with matches.
After being rained on for a week straight, it dawned on me that a rain jacket may be a good investment. This Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket is completely waterproof and won’t weigh you down – making it perfect for rainy spring weather. Pit zips with storm flaps allow you to stay cool, dry, and comfortable in warmer weather or while being active outdoors while hiking, camping, or etc. Best of all it rolls up into it’s own pocket making it super portable for those “is really going to rain?” kind of days. Available in a ton of colors.
Somethings you play with as a kid seemed real cool when your six, but are pretty underwhelming as an adult. Zip line’s however, are still awesome. This heavy duty Zip Line kit will hold “passengers” up to 250 lbs and comes with a 94′ cable. Set it up in the woods during camping trips, create an escape from a tree house in your backyard, make an express line from your deck to your pool…..oh the possibilities! Oh and if you hurt yourself, don’t sue Frachelli!
Now that it’s well into October and good camping weather, make sure you have a good knife before setting out into the woods. Gerber has been a trusted name in knives for years, and they now have a Bear Grylls Survivor series. This Bear Grylls Survivor knife has a 4.75 inch half-serrated blade attached to a molded rubber grip (the end can even be used as a hammer). The knife has a few more tricks up it’s sleeve, it also comes with an integrated fire starter, blade sharpener, and emergency whistle. If it’s good enough for Bear Grylls to survive with, it’s good enough for me. Even if you’re not stranded in the wilderness, it’s a great companion for any outdoor activity.
