Glamping seems to be the word on everyone’s lips at the moment, so for this week’s edit, Team Sporteluxe shares their favourite luxe camping essentials so you too can start planning a chic weekend getaway. We can assure you that these picks will make roughing it, well… just a little less rough.
“Being wet or cramped in a tent is the worst feeling when glamping. That’s why I rely on this easy-to-pitch, four-person tent, which has plenty of space with two fully enclosed rooms. As you’d expect of a top-line tent, it’s durable to nature’s elements, although driving wind and rain are something I’d always hope to avoid when glamping!”
“Forget the days of rocks digging into your back while you’re sleeping, ’cause this latest clever glamping staple promises a comfortable night. It features a compact design that fits easily into a travel bag or backpack, and the material is waterproof and stretch free. It looks pretty cool too!”
“This could possibly be the perfect rain jacket for camping adventures. I love that it’s super lightweight, which is exactly what you want if you’re carrying loads of other gear. Plus, it’s water repellant, has secure zipper pockets and it even folds into a small section inside the hood for easy carrying. Win!”
“I wear these boots around the house and outside day-to-day in winter, but they’re actually ideal for glamping because, unlike other sheepskin footwear, they’re completely waterproof! I could seriously stand in an ankle-deep puddle and my toes would stay toasty. They’re made from waterproof suede and lined with plush, natural Australian sheepskin, but it’s the moulded heel cup and toe cap that make them extra comfy to wear.”
“Trust me – cool outdoor knives aren’t just for boys. And there’s a reason Victorinox is the go-to brand for outdoorsy types worldwide! This one boasts over 10 functions, including a corkscrew, can opener, wood saw, toothpick, small blade and screwdriver. It looks cool and makes glamping a breeze, meaning I can spend more time enjoying the serenity of the great outdoors.”
