Tentsile

Whether you have a favorite campsite that doesn't offer much flat ground or are simply worried about what floor-dwelling creatures might crawl into your makeshift abode, the Tentsile ($TBA) is here to help. Made by hand using multiple layers of fabric and supports, this unique habitation unit is designed to be suspended in the trees, holding between 2 and 8 people — depending on the model — and offering neat features like a covered porch in the two-man, built-in windows in the midsize, and a double bed-sized central space in the largest model. As for how you'll get it up there, well, that's up to you.

  • Backcountry Boiler

    There are plenty of different ways to cook your food when you're out in the wild, but if all you want/need is hot water, the Backcountry Boiler ($100) is a perfect tool for the job. Based on the chimney kettles made popular by Irish fisherman and WWII soldiers, it's a lightweight tool that will run on virtually anything that's flammable, boiling up to 16 ounces of water in roughly 5 minutes and warming up to 20 even quicker than that, serving as a canteen when not in use. Perfect for campers, hikers, or incredibly lazy preppers.

  • BioLite

    Is it a portable stove or a gadget charger? How about both. The BioLite ($130) is a compact, portable stove that burns sticks, twigs, pine cones, and other renewable resources instead of petroleum gas, lighting quickly and bringing water to a boil in no time. In addition, it packs a USB port on the front that draws its power from the heat of the fire, letting you charge your phone, GPS, or LED lights miles from the nearest outlet.
