Going Camping? Don’t Leave Home Without The Right Gear

Going camping? Don't leave home without these must-have camping essentials.

Camping is a great experience for anyone looking to venture into the great outdoors. Here at Rothco, we love the experience of camping as well. Below is a list of items we find essential for any excursion into the wilderness.

For our shelter selection, we have highlighted 2 items that will give you optimal protection and warmth from the outdoor elements. The first item is our Foam Sleeping Pad, perfect for laying out on the bottom of the tent, the sleeping pad cushions your body while removing dampness you help keep you dry. Secondly, the G.I. Type Poncho Liner (aka woobie) is super versatile and can be used as a liner for a poncho or as a sleeping bag or blanket to help aid in keeping you warm.
Food and Water
Easily store and carry water with our Plastic Canteen. Designed for military personnel, the army canteen is very durable and provides a convenient way to hold your water. Rothco's Stainless Steel Mess Kit is perfect for cooking your food over a campfire. On top of that, the mess kit comes with a two-compartment plate that fits on top of the pan.

Fire Starting Accessories
Rothco's Waterproof Match Box safely stores your matches, tinder, and other small fire starting accessories so you can easily start a fire for cooking, sterilizing water, and warmth. A striking strip is featured on the bottom of the match case as well.

Camping Lights

Having a source of light is important when you go camping. Rothco offers a Solar Lantern Torch And Charger that will not only provide light through the lantern or flashlight feature, but the solar charger can charge an electronic device via the USB port.
First Aid Kit

In case of an injury, bringing a first aid kit is a good idea. Featuring a variety of bandages, tape, etc, Rothco's Military Zipper First Aid Kit will have you prepared for medical emergencies.


Rothco's 5-in-1 Multi-Purpose Tool is one of the most versatile items to add to your camping gear collection. The camping multitool features multiple interchangeable heads to cut wood, dig holes, hammer stakes into the ground, and complete many other camping functions.

Bags and Packs
Finally, you need something to store all these camping essentials. Rothco's Medium Transport Pack provides plenty of space and features to attach and store all your camping gear.
