Backpacker's Checklist: Camp in Comfort
Yes roughing it has its benefits, but that doesn’t mean you should needlessly suffer. Here are some easy ways to camp more comfortably on your next backcountry trip, while barely adding any extra weight. It’s all about being smart with what you put on your back.
Backpacker Magazine put the revolutionary Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller to the test in the Spring Gear Guide issue. Testers were delighted to discover, “The miniscule bug-repellent device is the size of an ultralight backpacking stove and attaches to the fuel canister you’re probably already carrying in your pack”. The fuel efficient Backpacker Repeller can run for 90 hours on a 4 oz gas canister, meaning you can have an entire evening of mosquito freedom on less gas than it takes to boil a pot of water.
