Outdoor Tech: 4 Must-Haves for your next Camping Trip


[MUSIC PLAYING] SURVIVOR-DAN: My producers left me here in the wilderness of central New Jersey to survive on nothing but my wits and a few gadgets. Now, the most important thing to survival, especially in New Jersey, is to have clean drinking water. The All Clear Camelbak Water Purifier can do just that, in only 60 seconds, using nothing but UV technology. And it’ll last for up to 10,000 cycles. The next most important thing when it comes to surviving in the wilderness is keeping up morale. Without it, emotions can run high, and you can find yourself making bad decisions. But it’s never a bad decision to break out the blender in these bleak survivalist times. That’s why I always bring my Coolest Cooler with me. That’s right. Cocktails and mocktails are a must in the brush. Let me show you how it works. Stay hydrated. But that’s not the only reason this was one of the highest grossing Kickstarter projects ever. The Coolest Cooler packs a knife, a cutting board, and four plates. Because when you’re trying to survive, paper plates just won’t do. And did I mention, they double as a Frisbee? [GROWLING] But surviving in the wilderness means more than just listening to your intuition and the beautiful sounds of nature. It also means listening to a built-in Bluetooth speaker. Because you’ve got to stay sane if you’re going to survive. But that’s not all. The wheels even maneuver over the most difficult terrain, but it’ll weigh you down. It’s pretty heavy, even when it’s empty, and for $500, the price is a bit steep. Sometimes, when you’re in a survival situation, all you really want is some warm tea, a hot meal, and to charge your smartphone. The BioLite Camp Stove Bundle can do just that. It’s a grill, it’s a stove, it’s got a kettle, and it’ll charge your smartphone all in one device. Sure, you could start a fire by getting some twigs and making a circle out of rocks, but that won’t charge a smartphone. In the wilderness, the difference between you being found and you having to go all 127 hours on your arm could be the Spot Gen3 satellite personal tracker. In case of emergency, the Spot can summon a rescue team at the touch of a button. It’s priced at $150, and an additional $150 per year for the service. A small price to pay for something that could one day save your life. The first rule about survival is to stay put. so for now, I’m gonna follow that rule and wait for rescue. MAN: Dan. Dan. What are you doing? It’s time for dinner. What are you doing dressed up like Rambo?
