If you’re an absent Australian with adventurous friends then this time of year’s social media offerings bring nothing but envy.

The swells come from all direction and start sacking up, the wind blows off the mountains and makes it cold and clean, the sun generally shines and it’s just the sunburned country at its most beautiful. In light of camp envy, here’s a few things that’ll complete your life as a semi-competent camper. 

Quick on The Boil

Seems obvious, but the ability to boil fast is invaluable on those crisp camp mornings. With one of these in the quiver you can go from slumbering and cold to caffeinated and peppy in minutes.

Compact, reliable, indispensable.

Practically Vogue

Theory: if you’re a brand with a story that makes good gear, hang around long enough then eventually the cool kids will start wearing your shit. Hit a Tokyo or New York winter and see what’s keeping the future warm: NF.

A bandwagon worth jumping on.

Original Swag

If you’re in the serious business of chasing surf (and don’t have the luxury of a vehicle that you can sleep in) then one of these is your ticket to mobile surf hunting bliss. Squishes into nothing and literally takes two minutes to erect.

The greatest investment you’ll ever make.

Man’s Real Best Friend

Is a good quality, thick flannelette shirt is something every man needs, They’re perfect for any occasion that requires slightly more insulation than usual, but nothing looks more at ease than a man sitting ’round the campfire in one. 

An un-regrettable splurge.
