Blue Ridge Camping Hammock + Giveaway
It’s tough to beat lounging in a hammock… unless said hammock sports a rain fly, provides shade, sets up fast & easy on the fly, and doubles as a ground tent. Lawson’s Blue Ridge Camping Hammock does all of these things and more, going where tents can’t, such as over uneven or rocky ground — just as long as two trees are near. Because of this it also spares you the need of carrying heavy tarps around. Plus, it weighs only 4 pounds, stays stretched and roomy thanks to spreader bars on either end, and keeps out bugs thanks to tight mesh no-see-um netting.
Coleman Rugged 55 A/T Wheeled Cooler
Don’t ever let bad terrain force you to downsize your cooler. The Coleman Rugged 55 A/T Wheeled Cooler features a telescopic handle and 8-inch off-road wheels that grant 75% more ground clearance than typically smaller wheels, making tracks over a variety of ground types with ease. It’s also got large EZ-Lift swing handles for carrying up stairs or across rocks and it holds 55 quarts of goods, translating to roughly 84 cans worth of refreshments. An integrated bungee cord allows for strapping additional gear to the lid, which, when freed up, also doubles as a seat and holds up to 250 pounds. And it’s also a well-performing cooler, keeping ice intact for five days at outdoor temperatures up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
Multifunction Folding Shovel
If you’re looking for just a small shovel and nothing more, move along. But if a little extra functionality tickles your fancy then the Multifunction Folding Shovel is for you. It also functions as an axe, hoe, hammer, knife, fire starter (thanks to an included magnesium rod), tourniquet, window breaker, wire cutter, and hell, even a whistle and a bottle opener. The shovel blade itself is made of 420 high-carbon steel while the handle is machined from aluminum before undergoing anodization for a durable finish. Have fun pulling that from the humorous translated Amazon description, though.
