Here, in alphabetic order, are some of our favorite exhibitors’ campsite accessories.


Barronett Blinds — The Beast

Barronett Blinds’ The Beast

The Beast is just that, a large hub blind that offers complete enclosure for a group gathering when the elements get too uncomfortable. Barronett says it’s the only side-by-side hub on the market, measuring a vast 160″x90″. Six large windows with mesh covering provide ventilation and keeps things cooler inside, while the exterior is covered in a tough, waterproof fabric. It’s also a reasonable 31 pounds when packed, so the Beast can be easily transported when your guests need covering or your gear needs more protection outside.


Big Agnes — Mistic UL 15

Big Agnes’ Mistic UL 15

A versatile bag is a must for staying comfortable and getting some sleep when camping. The Mystic UL 15 is lightweight, but made from a durable nylon that’s also water-repellant and well-insulated for conditions down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. The material also stretches to meet different pad sizes, although the Mystic is also available in three different lengths. Able to pack down to a small and light size, the Mystic is a solid all-rounder for various conditions when you’re just trying to stay warm at night.


Blue Ridge Chair Works — Voyager Table and Bench

Simple furniture might be essential depending on where a campsite is. The Voyager Table and Voyager Bench are simple wooden pieces that are versatile for eating or gathering when the outdoor amenities are minimal. At 40″x 21″x16″ and just 14 pounds, the table is easy to transport, with legs that fold in and release easily when set up. It can also support up to 300 pounds. The bench is also strong and lightweight, is able to fold up easily, and is covered in a durable fabric. It’s perfect for setting up for a meal in a hurry, while not adding too much weight or bulk to a collection of gear.


DryFoxCo — Quick Dry Microfiber Towel with Pocket

DryFoxCo Quick Dry Microfiber Towel with Pocket

Towel technology hasn’t evolved too much, but DryFoxCo has a new take on the format that incorporates some thoughtful design features. This quick-dry microfiber towel air-dries easily and also features loops to hang it outside so you won’t get the rest of your gear wet. It’s generously sized, yet light at only 8 ounces when dry. But the waterproof, zippered pocket keeps important items like phones and keys dry when you’re laying on it, as well as protected from dirt or sand. Available in a variety of designs or as a pack of four, this towel is perfect for camping when laundry facilities are nonexistent.


Endeavor Hardware Supply — Large Tool Bag

Endeavor Hardware Supply Large Tool Bag

Outdoor adventures sometimes require a variety of tools, and it’s easy to forget the one you really need at home. The Endeavor Hardware Supply tool bag keeps everything you need in one durable satchel that can hold a lot of large items, and even a lot of tie-downs and tent stakes for whatever the elements throw your way.


ENO — DoubleDelux Hammock

ENO DoubleDelux Hammock

A hammock is perfect for relaxing after a day of enjoying the outdoors, so much so that a whole group of people will want to try it out. The DoubleDeluxe is an oversized hammock that lets one person spread out with a good book or for a nap, or allows more than one person to sit in it and take a minute to enjoy nature as it can hold up to 400 pounds. Triple-stitched seams also offer reinforcements if a family wants to jump in, while the fabric is breathable and easy to clean. Better still, it folds up neatly in a compression sack and weighs just 26 ounces when packed.


Hitch Hammock — Hitch Hammock

Hitch Hammock

Want a hammock but know there aren’t going to be many trees around? The Hitch Hammock has you covered for relaxing, as well as cooking and hauling gear. Supported by a metal grate that attached to a hitch, the platform can be used to support more gear that doesn’t fit in the vehicle or on the roof. When parked, it turns into a platform for cooking on a grill. And after the cooking and cleanup is done, it can support a hammock with the two arms that are included. The Hitch Hammock is a 3-in-1 device that makes packing for an outdoor adventure efficient.


Skeeter Beater — Skeeter Beater Screen


Skeeter Beater Screen

Skeeter Beater Screen

RV and trailer owners often have a problem keeping their vehicle well-ventilated but free of flying insects, especially in the summer. The Skeeter Beater is a screen that easily attaches over windows and other openings to allow for air flow while keeping pests out. The magnetic screens cover windows of vehicles, including cars, and even allow for doors to be opened without having to remove. When not needed, they fold neatly into protective cases. Skeeter Beater even tailors the screens to different vehicle makes and models.
