For some, camping is all about roughing it: living off the land, communing with nature and getting away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. However, building a fire by rubbing two sticks together or fishing for dinner is not everyone's idea of a good time. For those who like the idea of camping but would prefer a few luxuries, here are a few high-tech gadgets that will make your camping experience a little less rugged:
CamelBak All Clear Bottle
If you're going to be camping for a couple of nights, you usually need to bring a way to purify water. This can be a fairly time-consuming task through the use of iodine drops or boiling. However, CamelBak has released a water bottle with a UV cap that takes just 60 seconds to purify water.
Handpresso Wild Hybrid Espresso Maker
For some campers, morning coffee is not option. It's a necessity. Those who prefer espresso over filtered coffee will love this handheld espresso maker.
