For those who don’t like to rough it up but don’t want to go glamping either, here’s three items to consider to make your camping trip that little bit more comfortable.
1. Pocket shower – Powered by the sun, the pocket shower can be folded up into a little pocket-sized black bag. It can be filled with up to 10 litres of water and hung on a tree. The black material absorbs the sunlight and, in turn, heats up the water inside the bag. Then just stand under the bag and turn the tap on for a warm shower. This is perfect for those out in the wilderness or travellers in warmer climates.
2. Portable toilet – For those who are portaloo shy or just not keen on using public toilets, try taking a portable toilet with you. Portable toilets are especially welcome at festivals where the only option is to use smelly portaloos that have been used by thousands of other people in a short space of time. It also saves you from walking in the dark if you need to go in the middle of the night.
3. Katadyn Base Camp Water Filter – Drinking water is available at pretty much all campsites but if you want free drinking water at festivals, then expect a queue and sometimes even a bit of a walk. The Katadyn base camp water filter is a gravity feed filter system. You can fill the bag up with water and then hang it up. Gravity helps to feed the water through the filter media into a water container.
