Camping has long been known to bring positive benefits, such as improved sleep quality, and less anxiety. This is all mostly backed by science. But now more than ever, when people are wanting to get away from crowds and steer clear of main stream hotels, camping has become a much more attractive travel option. So you don’t own a motorhome, and you are looking to truly jump in headfirst—these are the first things you should consider investing in.
Investing in a solid sleeping bag will be one of the first things that aspiring campers need to do. When in the wilderness, weather is unpredictable, so this will protect from the elements while adding comforting compression because of the “mummy” style. When choosing a sleeping bag be sure that the temperature range is adequate for the area you will be commonly traveling through.
Sleeping pads make the difference between a great or miserable night’s sleep. Since this one inflates, it won’t take up a lot of space in your backpack, but will provide over 2 inches of cushion from the ground. Also providing insulation, because of that separation from the ground, it’s perfect for camping in cold weather.
