Three Car Camping Upgrades For Spring

Including a crazy engineered inflatable geodesic dome tent ...

Though weather still seems to be anything but consistent, it appears we’re finally out of the wintery woods. And that means it’s time to start camping—or at least thinking about it. With some snowpack likely still lingering in many alpine zones it’s best to hold off on proper backpacking and other more aggressive forms of camping for a few more months yet. Which means, car camping! To help make the experience a bit more enjoyable, we pulled three favorite products from our recently updated Huckberry curated shop. See below more the deets.

Heimplanet Cave Tent

This thing is crazy. You already know that. But it’s also incredibly well engineered—to the point where you can pitch it in less than one minute. Using an inflatable diamond grid design, the geodesic dome tent has no collapsible poles or additional parts. And this kit comes with a pump, so picking where to pitch the 3 person tent is the hardest part of the whole process.

Impossible Project I-1 Camera Kit

Everyone loves instant film, and this beaut is the first new camera for the original instant format in over 20 years. It’s modern and nostalgic at the same time, and has a flash and autofocus features so you can stop worrying about wasting film. No, it’s not something you’d want to take into the backcountry, but you know it’ll be damn fun around a campfire with a handful of friends. Plus the I-1 camera starter kit comes with 3 packs of color film, a protective carrying case, and works with an iPhone app for full aperture and shutter speed control for the legit photogs out there.

Kletterwerks Drei Zip Rucksack

Made by hand in Bozeman, Montana in the legendary Mystery Ranch factory with ballistic nylon and 1000D Cordura, this classic rucksack is built to go anywhere and never fail. The design builds on an original 1970s design with upgraded 3-zip functionality, giving easy access to the entire pack in seconds. Use it for packing in gear from the car, and then as a carryall for day hikes. Or just look like a badboy mountaineer in town while getting groceries.
