Spring is in the air, and after a long, socially distant winter, the call of the wilderness is here. Okay, maybe just the campground down the road, but it’s still the wilderness, right? The campfire makes a hot dog taste like a five-star meal and sleeping under the stars is the perfect experience to get away. Read on to discover our clever camping hacks to make you feel like a wilderness pro.
Hack 1: Keep your Sleeping Bag Neatly Rolled
Nothing is worse than a damp messy sleeping bag that looks like it has leftover spiders from last year. Except perhaps struggling to stuff it back into the compression sack.
Keep your sleeping bag neatly rolled with VELCRO® Brand Stretch Straps. Once you’re ready to use the straps, your sleeping bag will be clean, dry, and ready for that all-important nap.
Hack 2: Keep Your Sleeping Pad from Rolling Around
Sleeping on the cold, damp floor can always be a challenge. That’s why using a sleeping pad is so great! Keep your sleeping pad from rolling around in the night and use VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics Tape to stick the mat to your tent. Not only will the pad stay in place, but it will also keep your sleeping bag dry in challenging conditions.
Hack 3: Maintain Wires and Cables
Keeping base camp organized is key to successful camping. A little pre-planning and organizing will leave more time for exploring and having fun. Tame those charging cables with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Ties. You’ll be able to find them quickly and fend off wire tangles before they happen.
Hack 4: Roll your Clothes!
Your pack is an important part of your camping experience. Be organized but keep things as light as possible. Roll clothes with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Ties to keep them organized without any added weight. Center the heaviest items in your pack and surround them with lighter items. Your back will thank you.
With a bit of help from our VELCRO® Brand Fasteners and a little pre-planning, your weekend camping trip can be a relaxing getaway. Just watch out for bears!
