Five must-have items for your next camping trip

This blog will discuss five items you absolutely need for your next camping trip. The majority of these items can be found in shops such as Mountain Warehouse or online from a wide range of retailers, including Amazon.

(1) Quick dry towels

Quick dry towels are made from MircoFibres to allow for just that, quick drying! As they are far thinner and light weight compared to ordinary towels, they are the perfect choice for camping. 

With quick dry towels, you save time AND space!

(2) Hygiene Products

One of the beauties of camping is that you're at one with Mother Nature. However, this often means that things can get...well, a little muddy!

You can tackle this by bringing baby wipes and antibacterial gel with you, which is especially important for eating and when showers aren't an option.

And best of all, they're small and compact so they don't take up much space in your backpack. These items can be found in a whole range of shops, including super markets and local chemists.

(3) Glow in the dark ropes

Navigating around a busy campsite (or a lonely field!) can be extremely difficult in the dark. That's why glow in the dark safety ropes can save you from embarrassment or injury by avoiding the inevitable trip over your ropes on the way back to the tent.

Glow in the dark ropes 'charge' in the day and allow you to recognise your tent from a distance and get back to camp safely.

 (4) A head torch

Head torches are extremely useful in camping situations. Ever arrived late to a campsite and struggled to pitch your tent in darkness?

Head torches let you use both hands and you don't have to deal with the hassels of balancing the torch in between your knees or trying to hold it in your mouth...(we've all been there!)

Head torches are also more useful than handheld torches because it means when camping solo, you don't have to rely on someone else for light.

Head torches are small and compact and you could even wear it around your neck to save more space in your backpack.

(5) A portable power bank

One of the most important things to bring with you when camping is a power bank! Keeping your devices charged outdoors is no longer impossible and with the right device, you can stay connected and stay safe.

SOUL Power allows you to charge up to 4 devices at once, allowing your whole camp to charge phones, cameras, speakers or anything else you may need for the perfect camping trip. 

SOUL Power also only weights 1.5Kg (3.3lb), making it the perfect choice for camping! For more information about why the SOUL Power is the perfect travel companion, you can read our blog here.
