JetBoil Personal Cooking System

JetBoil Personal Cooking System

The great outdoors is a wonderful place to reconnect with nature — but it’s not the best place to cook soups or rice. If you often find yourself fishing, camping, or just wandering through the wilderness, you might want to consider picking up a JetBoil Personal Cooking System ($80). Winner of Time Magazine’s Most Amazing Invention Award in 2004, the system integrates the burner and cookware to minimize the risk of fire, and the insulated cup makes sure your grub stays warm longer. Now if they could just come up with a little portable microwave… [Thanks, Mark!]

  • Red Cross Emergency Preparedness Kit

    Hopefully you'll never have to use it, but in the case of an emergency it's smart to have a disaster supplies kit ready. If you don't think you'll ever get around to putting one together yourself, order the Red Cross Deluxe Emergency Preparedness Kit ($65), which includes a heavy-duty backpack stuffed with items like a battery-powered flashlight and radio (batteries included), water (2 quarts) and water container (2.5 gallon), an emergency blanket, U.S. Coast Guard-approved food bars, work gloves, light sticks, a breathing mask, a rain poncho, a roll of duct tape, and a first aid kit.

  • MSR Hubba Hubba Tent

    While we don’t get the chance to go camping/backpacking very often — it’s hard to find Wi-Fi out in the wilderness — when we do we like to have the best gear possible, and that includes the Hubba Hubba Tent from MSR ($290). It’s extremely lightweight (about 4 lbs.), has room for two, and the all-mesh canopy provides plenty of ventilation.
