I'm not a camper. I'm not one to sacrifice a hot shower or a comfortable bed just to spend time outside. But with the beautiful weather lately, the fresh air beckons, and sometimes you really do need to get out of the city and spend a little time roughing it.
For those who crave a dose of nature but cringe at the idea of bugs, dirt, and sleeping on the ground, here are a few products designed to make camping a lot more tolerable.
A PORTABLE FUTON SO YOU CAN LOUNGE IN COMFORT
Forget the classic camping folding chairs, you're going to want to sit on something that's actually comfortable. Go for Snow Peak's Campfield futon. It creates a full couch for lounging, but has adjustable parts, which means the futon can also be split into two chairs and a table, or even a full bed. $749.95
A COOLER FOR STOCKING YOUR WHOLE KITCHEN
You're going to want an easy way to pack and carry all the food and booze you're accustomed to at home. Yeti's Tundra Haul is the only one of the cult cooler brand's products to come with wheels for easy portability. It's pricy, but worth it; Yeti's coolers consistently get rave reviews. Who wants to carry a full-sized cooler through the woods when you can roll it? $399.99
