Latest Tech for Comfy Camping

Latest Tech for Comfy Camping

Camping is the best type of holiday to have if you are looking for something without all the frills, but that doesn’t mean it has to be totally uncomfortable. Cutting back and unwinding in nature is our favourite way to take a vacation and our Ausbox ute fit-outs are great to load up with camping gear and head out to the bush, beach or dam for a getaway! We have put together a list of some new gear you can pack up into your 4 wheel drive to make your next camping outing a little bit comfier.

VSSL First Aid Kit

It’s safe to say a flashlight and a first aid kit are camping essentials every well-versed camper brings on their excursions. Camping, as fun as it can be, can also present us with dangerous situations that we need to be prepared for. The VSSL First Aid Flashlight combines a military-grade, aluminium flashlight with the contents of a first aid kit packed inside. This multi-use tool is a great addition for any beginner, intermediate or advanced camper. You can even customise your flashlight and its contents on the VSSL website!


Run out of water? Packing a Lifestraw makes any source of water yours to drink. The purification system of the Lifestraw removes harmful particles and bacteria present in many unfiltered water sources like typhoid, E. coli, dysentery and more. The Lifestraw can filter 4000L of water before needing to be replaced and requires no electricity or charging, making it perfect for a long stint out in the wild.

Aeropress Coffee Maker

Let’s face it, some of us are snobs when it comes to coffee and simply won’t settle for bitter instant coffee or we have brought someone along who cannot handle a morning without a smooth long black. That is where Aeropress comes in, designed with campers in mind, this lightweight and portable espresso maker is perfect for the outdoor coffee connoisseur. Made of sturdy plastic, the Aeropress delivers the perfect and convenient shot of espresso every time.

PackLite 2-in-1 Phone charger

Another multi-use wonder, the PackLite Max 2-in-1 Phone Charger is an inflatable lantern and phone charger that packs totally flat for easy transport. The PackLite Max 2-in-1 Phone Charger can be completely charged up for a 50-hour max run time with a 14-hour exposure to the sun or a 1-2 hour USB connection. It is waterproof, floats, and is a perfect solution to your heavy, clunky lamp that doesn’t charge phones!

Bison Rolling Grill

Don’t feel like packing a hefty electric grill or a big fixed over fire grill? The Bison rolling grill is the camping cooking innovation perfect for campers who are tight on space. Some campfire BBQ’s are foldable, and this is okay, but if you are only taking a backpack there is no way it will fit, and if it does it is still a massive waste of space. The Bison rolling grill rolls into a tight 55mm x 300mm cylindrical shape, perfect to slide into any backpack or tight spot you can fit it.
