Thick camping mattress

What: Blackwolf 3DX.

When it comes to camping mattresses, thickness is better. And this newish addition to the Tentworld range is the best option for a great night’s sleep. The self-inflating mattress has a very comfortable 15cm thickness when inflated and the HexaTherm-cored foam reduces weight and provides extra warmth and comfort.

Coffee maker

Prepare to be the envy of your fellow campers. Built around a newly patented pumping system, the Nanopresso is capable of reaching a maximum of 18 bars (261 PSI) of stable pressure. What does this all mean? Unparalleled camp coffee quality. Load up your Nespresso pods and enjoy proper coffee every morning.

Daydreamer lounger chair

Who: Outdoor Connection.

The Daydreamer is an extremely comfortable and strong reclining chair and is a big hit among Tentworld staff. As a lounger quad fold chair, the Daydreamer compacts much better than other lounger-style products. It’s just the ticket if you want to take a lounger when camping or just to store around the house.

Portable gas oven and stove cooktop combo

Who: Companion.

This practical and versatile product is a favourite among campers due to its flexibility and ease of use. The cooktop operates just like a stand-alone two-burner stove, with individual burner controls and an easy start Piezo ignition housed in a tough, stainless steel exterior. And the oven reaches 250℃ for the perfect camp roast.

Hot seller: Cooking is made easy with this portable creation.

Can/stubby holder

What: Yeti Rambler Australian Colster.

This is likely the most popular Yeti product sold in Australia and is renowned for keeping drinks cold or warm until the very last sip.

Wheeled icebox

What: Yeti Tundra Haul 50l.

Yeti's first-ever cooler on wheels, this icebox is the answer to taking the Tundra's legendary toughness and unmatched insulation power to the extra mile. Armed to the teeth with loads of great features, the Tundra Haul is sure to be the toughest icebox you've ever owned – and the easiest to manoeuvre! In our opinion, Yeti coolers have no equal.

Wheely good: Yeti coolers are the hottest on the market, according to Tentworld.

Fly repellent device

Who: ShooAway.

Unlike many methods of controlling flies, ShooAway does not use any harmful chemicals, making it safe around food, drink, children, and pets. The ShooAway’s soft, flexible blades are rotated by an energy-efficient motor that comes to a soft stop if something blocks the blades, such as your hand. At the end of each of ShooAway’s gently rotating blades is patented holographic discs. This unique innovation is the key to keeping irritating flies away. A hot seller!

Buzz off: Don't let flies spoil dinner.

Sun shelter with solid wall

What: Coleman Event 14.

Larger than standard 3x3m gazebos and also more resistant to wind and rain, this Coleman sunshade provides a massive, sheltered area. And it folds up smaller than most gazebos, so you can pack it into a handy carry bag that’s included. It’s that easy!

More info

Slim shady: These sun shelters are easy to set up and pack down.

Solar camp light

Who: Darche.

With two different methods of charging – solar and USB connectivity – this nifty light has numerous features that make it the pride of the Tentworld lighting range. Through the solar panel, it can be fully charged in 12-15 hours, or 4-5 hours through the included USB cord. It can last up to 20 hours on its lowest output setting. The silicone structure of the light itself can collapse, changing the light effect and aiding in its storage abilities. What more could you want?

More info

Bright spot: Darche solar camp lights are an excellent choice.

Nontoxic ice pack

Who: Arctic Ice.

This nontoxic freezer gel is injected into a multi-layer, barrier film pouch, giving the pack excellent strength that ensures the polymer is not affected by continuous freezing and thawing. These packs do not absorb smells or dehydrate over time. Best of all, there is no melted ice in the bottom of the ice box. The packs can take time to freeze down to -20ºC so three days flat-stacked in the freezer before use is recommended. Available in three sizes. 900gm, 2.4kg, and 3.5kg.

Ice ice, baby: There's no need for ice bags thanks to these beauties.
