McLellan Jacobs Kayak 1

Like a yacht for the stream, the McLellan Jacobs Kayak 1 ($TBA) is an absurdly luxurious vehicle that will undoubtedly draw attention. But unlike a yacht, the Kayak 1 — with its carbon fiber body crafted by America's Cup boat builders, teak and ash detailing, and gold-plated brass fittings — won't be drawing attention from other people, but rather from fish, birds, and perhaps the occasional otter. Still, it weighs 40 pounds or less depending on what options you select, so odds are you'll still look presentable after hauling its nearly 13-foot shell from your vehicle to the dock and back, where you might actually see other humans again.

  • Blue Ridge Camping Hammock

    This isn't your typical backyard relaxation spot. The Blue Ridge Camping Hammock ($140) is instead made for use in rough terrain, with a nylon pack cloth bed, nylon rope, aluminum alloy poles, and no-see-um netting. It's also ready for bad weather, thanks to a nylon rain tarp and two interior pockets to keep your stuff dry, and it weighs just 4.25 pounds, so you won't need to stop for the night quite as early.

  • Mr. Heater Buddy Propane Heaters

    Okay, so maybe you're too late to get these in before Nemo drops a foot of snow on your doorstep, but at least you can be ready for next time. Available in 100- and 200-square foot models, these Mr. Heater Buddy Propane Heaters ($50-$90) promise to provide hours of safe heat using nothing but standard propane tanks. The smaller of the two stands just one foot tall and uses a 1-pound propane cylinder for fuel, while the larger model cranks out up to 9,000 BTUs of heating power and runs off grill-sized propane tanks. No matter which model you choose, you can rest easy knowing both have low oxygen sensors and a tip over switch that will shut things down if the unit gets knocked over.
