The North Face Docking Station

Whether you're high in the mountains or just chillin' by the lake, The North Face Docking Station ($430) makes for a fine base camp. The 97 sq. ft. main component offers room for six, with roll up walls, a perimeter floor and color-coding for easy setup, durable steel stakes, and an included duffel-style storage sack. Should your group grow larger as your stay continues, simply add on an available two- or four-person dock to turn your modest camp into a rockin' retreat.

  • BearVault

    Keep the Yogi and Boo-Boo types out of your goods with the BearVault ($80). Made from tough polycarbonate and designed to keep strong smells from escaping and luring in the unwanted wildlife, this clever container offers 700 cu. in. of interior storage, a rainproof lid with a bear-proof locking mechanism, and a dimpled exterior to keep it secured when going to and from camp. It's also approved by both the Sierra Interagency Black Bear Group and Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee, if you can believe such a thing exists.

  • Adirondack FireStone FireLighter

    Leave the normal lighter fluid, newspapers, and tinder to the amateurs and get your fire going with the Adirondack FireStone FireLighter ($150). This set of fire essentials includes a durable stoneware pot to hold the reusable, porous FireStone, a cold rolled steel handle for the stone, and two bottles of candle & lamp oil. Just soak the stone in the oil — using the pot — roll it in ashes, light it, and place it under your firewood. Just like that, you've got a strong fire blazing that Herostratus himself would be proud of.
