  1. I am a backpacker and camper and I love outdoor gear! That Yeti cooler looks awesome and the fact that its bear resistant makes it even more attractive. I often camp in bear country and it is a hassle to store the cooler in the bear locker.

    My wishlist would include a nicer camp stove, a hammock, and a small solar charger for cell phones and ipods.

    • Hi Katie, Thanks for stopping by. The Yeti cooler is a beast. Like all coolers, it works better if you do not leave it out in the sun. The article about Christmas Stocking Stuffers has a very nice hammock. It folds up small and can easily be carried in a backpack. Here is a link: Great Stocking Stuffers for Campers

      A solar cell phone charger is a great thing to have. Did you know BioLite made a camp stove that converts the heat into electricity for charging USB devices like cellphones,

      Thanks for your comment and have fun camping.

      – Joe
